We all went through high school, right? I’m sure we all lost a love or two in the process. What’s that you say? You married your high school sweetheart?? Well, it could happen I suppose but not if your high school boyfriend is Edward from the Twlight books.
I mean don’t get me wrong,I like the Twilight series. I eventually got passed the whining from Bella, the decisions she made that were DUMB, her cluelessness about life…But let’s be fair here, she is a teenager. When we are honest with ourselves we can admit that we are A LOT smarter than our teenage selves. I often wonder what it would be like if I went back in time to my former teenage self and had a conversation with myself.
Older Me: So are you ever going to talk to M? I mean you have only been writing poetry to him forever.
Younger Me: If he finds out I like him, he will never like me EVER. It is safer like this.
Older Me: Then what about his friend, J? He seems to think you are beautiful. I mean that is his nickname for you.
Younger Me: J? You know what the popular people would say if I went out with J? you gotta be joking. Ha! Ha!
Older Me: And one more thing, You most certainly do NOT know everything! I know more than you ever will!
Just a thought. I was very insecure in high school. Back to Edward/Bella/Jacob.
Your love leaves you. He tells you he is doing it for you, he just can’t be with you right now, and he will ALWAYS love you but that he is going away and that you should not worry, AND…. (You get my point.)
Enter your best friend, who just so happens to be a guy. (A very good looking guy I might add.) “I won’t ever go away.” You and your best friend continue to hang out together until you find yourself falling in love with him. At first it was strictly friendly, but soon you come to realize it is he that you love.
Your “love” comes back. He says he is sorry that he left and he wants to pick it up where you left off. You and this guy best friend are really close now. You think you might be falling for him. Do you just leave your guy best friend for the so-called love that left you? (I wouldn’t. I would stand by the person who stuck by me through my tears, my lonelieness, my confusion.)
In essence, that is what Jacob did for Bella. And look at what he got for it. Bella chose Edward in the end. Who wants to cuddle up to something that is so cold anyway? I don’t get it. I just don’t get it.
All you Twilight fans out there, who did YOU choose and why?
All you NON-Twilight fans out there, I gave you the scenario. Would you choose the love that left you, or your friend you are starting to fall in love with?
Did any of you change from Edward to Jacob now? 🙂
