Essay Topic 2
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.
