Watching things unfold in front of my eyes, I’m torn between amusement and concern – for my family as well as, strangely enough, Bella – and exasperation.
Being from the South, and being as old as I am, how to treat a lady was bred into me. So I understand perfectly Edward’s desire to treat Bella right. Though not quite from the same era as me, he still hails from a time when women were doted upon.
Seeing the extremes he takes it to, though, leaves me shaking my head – and at times stifling a laugh, especially when I feel Bella’s reactions.
