Bella Acts With The Self Controll, And The Desires, Of A Vampire Decades Old, Not Hours ! But Why ?
After Bella is converted into a Vampire, Edward and the rest of her new family is stunned that she doesn’t have the self controll of a "New Born Vampire," but rather that of a vampire who is decades old. And Bella is surprised too. Because Edward had told her that “for the first few years the thirst shall be so intense that you won’t be able to think about THAT”! (That being an erotic desire, to be physicaly intimate with him) But she is surprised to find that not only is she attracted to him, she is physicaly attracted to him with an intensity that is far, far beyond anything she has experienced before.
White Rose Question: What is the reason (or reasons) that this is true ?
When my dad got back from the second world war, he told me about an experience a professor friend of his had. He said: Doc (senior) I had taught students for 20 years,but the day I entered my class room after the gi bill had been passed, I was literally stunned (The Gi bill provided that returning American war veterans, could go to college free) He went on to say that: As the year passed, I discovered that most all of my students had faced death some on many occasions. That some had dug shallow graves, with their hands for their best friends. And that others had literally walked into the face of hell itself. The maturity and personal power of those young men was simply awe inspiring. PS "They went on to be described as "America's greatest generation." lolDB
Pat Tillman was an Arizona football player, who gave up tens of millions of dollars to enlist to fight in Afghanistan after 9-11. He was killed in action.
Bella's decision to accept death and become a vampire is a powerful example of her use of her "free will" to make the decisions that will control her destiny. Thank you for sharing with us, Doc
