Discussion Question KSE102509 by Doc B
If you had been Carlisle: What would your advice have been on the: “Werewolves are off limits,” debate?
In the novel “Eclipse” Edward Cullen and Bella Swan reach an impasse as to whether Bella should be able to freely visit the werewolf (shifter) Jacob Black.
Hypothetical question: If you had been Carlisle: What would your advice have been on the: “Werewolves are off limits” debate?
Hypothetical premise: You are Doctor Cullen. And you are sitting in your home office, when Bella and Edward come in.
Edward says, “Carlisle, Bella would like to frequently go to La Push, so she can visit her friend Jacob. And I understand her desire, but as you know, by their nature werewolves are unstable. Especially young ones. You are well aware of the Emily Uley case. And Emilie’s injuries were caused by her husband Sam. Sam, who has always been the most mature young man at La Push. Sam who was deeply in love with Emily when he mutilated her. Not only that but Paul almost killed Bella over a simple misunderstanding. Bella thinks that she can manage Jacob but he has repeatedly broken into a shimmer and almost converted right in front of her on multiple occasions!
Then Bella says: Carlisle I am aware of the inherent danger, but as we all know I am at risk, just by being in here in your home. Which is one of my favorite places on earth.
Jacob is my very best friend. I really don’t know what I would have done without him last year. And now he says that he needs me. And I want to go see him as often as I like.
Then they both say: “We both love you, and respect your opinion. What “Werewolf Policy” would you advise ?”
Hypothetical Question: What would your answer to them have been ?
As always we sincerely look forward to learning your opinion, to help us both better understand, and enjoy more fully the "Twilight Saga."
