Essay Topic 3
Edward summons him outside to talk, assuring Bella he just wants to speak to Jacob, and Bella tells Jacob to behave and come back. Outside, Edward tells Jacob he is not ready for Jacob to kill him yet. Edward asks Jacob to talk to her, even suggesting that Jacob can impregnate her if Bella really wants a baby so badly. Jacob agrees to talk to Bella, and he also agrees to a deal with Edward: he will kill Edward when Bella dies. Jacob tells her she looks hideous and asks why she is doing this to herself. Bella believes this will work out; she has to believe in magic after all she has lived through, and she especially believes in magic for Jacob finding someone.

2. Discuss in detail what you think Edward being willing for Jacob to get Bella pregnant suggests about Edward? Use examples from your own life and Breaking Dawn to support your reasoning.
3. Do you think most mothers would be willing to die in order to give their child life? Why or why not? Use examples from your own life and Breaking Dawn to support your reasoning.
