Twilight (2008) (part 4 of 9)
Having blown off yet another guy who hasn’t got a hope in hell of ever scoring with her, Bella heads off on the class trip. This is to a random greenhouse somewhere, and the biology teacher (who appears to be the only teacher in the entire school) gives the students a way too enthusiastic speech about the delights of compost. I gotta admit, though, that his enthusiasm for his subject matter is kind of sweet.
Bella catches up with Edward, who asks her why she’s going out of town. She gets cranky with him for listening in on her, and then basically says “screw you; you don’t answer any of my questions”. You go, girl! He keeps clumsily trying to interact with her, but blows it when she slips, and he yells at her to watch where she’s going. He instantly apologises, saying he’s being rude all the time for a reason, but Jessica runs up before he can explain why, and he clears off while Bella is told that, yes, Mike asked Jessica to the prom. I bet she’ll be thrilled when she finds out she was second on the list.
Outside, Eric has a worm on a stick, which he tries to scare Bella with, but once again she’s too busy being annoyed by Edward. He tells her that he shouldn’t be friends with her, and she gets upset and asks why he didn’t just let her get crushed. Edward then blows her off (again), and leaves. He’s a real charmer, isn’t he?
