For the first question...
I don't think he was too harsh at all. Yes, Bella went into zombie mode, but if he was easier on her then she would have never let him leave and he would have to be even harder on her. Possibly even say things that he would never have wanted to say or
he would have just given in to her and stayed because he kind of lives to please her.
And for the second...
I believe he came up with it right there on the spot when she said (sorry I don't have my book with me, its in Arizona with a friend so I am going from memory) "you...don't...want...me?" He most likely figured that he would go with that since that's what she was thinking because he knew that she wouldn't let him go (quietly at least) otherwise. It was one time where I don't think Edward really thought about it before hand because he would have whimped out and stayed, so when she said that he probably thought that was his ticket. That that would be the one way she would believe him...even if he wished she wouldn't.
I have a question that goes along with this one...but I will wait until more people answer this one and we get a new thread.
