Listen to the reading of Chapter 13 while following the text. Teacher Resource 3: v=w9G6_D8CpJo&feature=related 3. Continue reading the rest of the chapter individually. 4. Get into groups of four. 5. Group Discussion 1 What does Edward mean when he says: i. "Would you understand what I meant if I said I was only human?" ii. "And so the lion fell in love with the lamb…" Answer guide: i. "Would you understand what I meant if I said I was only human?" (This statement embodies the element of irony: Edward is a vampire, not a human, but he has feelings for Bella, and those feelings are only possible for humans to have. The fact that he cannot resist the temptation of being too close to Bella physically makes him say this. Edward is facing a conflict within himself: As a vampire, he craves for Bella’s blood, but he fights the urge to drink her blood because he loves her. Being too close to her worries him because he might hurt or kill her. He says, ‘Never forget I am more dangerous to you than I am to anyone else.’ He says this after Bella tries to lean closer to him while lying on the grass with him… he reacts by dashing off in an instant; Bella says, ‘ he was gone, his hand ripped from mine. In the time it took my eyes to focus, he was twenty feet away, standing at the edge of the small meadow’) KMPP/2010/FMR
  3. 3. Teacher’s Copy ii. "And so the lion fell in love with the lamb…” (Edward describes himself as the world’s best predator. "I'm the world's best predator, aren't I?” He is a vampire, an immortal (the lion). Bella on the other hand, is a normal girl who is weak and can easily become his prey (the lamb); by saying this he is admitting that he, the vampire, has fallen in love with a girl whose blood he craves the most) 5.1 Provide evidence from the text to justify their answers. 5.2 Accept all suitable answers. 5.3 Group representatives present their findings. 6.

Everything about me invites you in — my voice, my face, even my smell. As if I need any of that!" ii. "As if you could outrun me." iii. He reached up with one hand and, with a deafening crack, effortlessly ripped a two-foot-thick branch from the trunk of the spruce. He balanced it in that hand for a moment, and then threw it with blinding speed, shattering it against another huge tree, which shook and trembled at the blow. KMPP/2010/FMR
