To be honest, I feel shielding was just Bella. .. /is/ just Bella. It suits her so perfectly. I can't actually picture her with anything else. I suppose, maybe if she didn't have shielding, I could picture her doing something with the elements.
As far as being tied to Edward, I think it would be very cool to have had Edward be able to read her mind all the time without having to do so much work. Edward really wishes he could see into her mind, but at the same time, respects the fact that she doesn't necessarily always want him in her head.
Hm, I really don't see any of the vampires in the whole series with different powers/supernatural abilities than what they have. I believe Stephenie nailed it.
What do you think?
He would have gone to see Bella, for sure, at least to see if her is safe, like he did before, he would watch her, and i think he would not let her see him, but after see Bella and JAcob relationship he would return. Bella was suffering because of him, so if him was there he would see that and end that stupid reaction.
