You took the words right out of my mouth! I, too am an old fashioned romantic! Although I am in total agreement, I also love the part at the end of Eclipse when Edward sees how much pain it puts Bella in to chose between him and Jacob, and Edward tells Bella that it is okay if she doesn't choose him and that he won't make her choose if she doesn't want to and that she can have any part of him whether that is all, or some, or none. It just truly made me appreciate Edward's wanting to always put Bella and her needs above himself. Oh and the part in the epilogue where Edward thanks Jacob for keeping Bella safe and taking care of her when he didn't (again) in the Wedding invitation. I thought that was so classy and gentleman-like. Oh, I just love Edward so much!!!!!!
My two favorit parts are when they are camed out in "Eclips" and Bella wakes up and asked for help to get Jecob off of her, and Edward asked if he should just rip off his arm. Then in "Breaking Dawn" when Bella goes after Jacob for calling Resenesmee "Nessie". Those were kinda funny.
page 340 in Eclipse after Jacob kissed Bella n she punched him n broke her hand n Edward says to Jacob:
"... If you ever bring her back damaged again; and I don't care whose fault it is - I don't care if she merely trips or if a meteor falls out of the sky and hits her in the head - if you return her to me in less than the perfect condition that I left her in, you will be running with three legs. Do you understand that, mongrel?" WOOT WOOT!!!!!! LOL
