Bella and Edward wait in the tent as the fight begins in the clearing. Edward tries to distract Bella with conversation. He relays some of the fight to Bella through what he sees from Seth until Edward suddenly  rips out of the tent and tells Seth to run.

Victoria and Riley approach the group to attack. Edward tries to talk to Riley to convince him that Victoria is using him, but it doesn’t work.  Just as Riley tries to attack, Seth jumps out and attacks Riley first. While they’re fighting, Edward and Victoria battle it out. Bella decides a distraction is needed and tries to sacrifice herself like the 3rd wife she heard about from the Quileute legends. The distraction works and gives Seth a moment to dismember Riley. Edward and Victoria fight until Edward beheads Victoria.

Edward and Bella ~ “You’re only human.”  “That’s the most miserable defense I’ve ever heard.”

Bella to Edward ~ “First because you are bizarrely moral for a vampire.”

Edward to Victoria ~ “Look more closely, Victoria.  Is he really so much like the monster James tracked across Siberia?”

Important Information learned:
