I really wasn't expecting Jessica to have such hateful thoughts about Bella. Based on Twilight, where I guess I was seeing things through Bella's perception, I knew Jessica was jealous and gossipy and sort of used Bella at times, but I didn't realize how deep that went.

In New Moon, I was a little miffed at Jessica for being mad at Bella after all she had been through, but I realized that Jessica had no concept of the connection between Bella and Edward. I understood that she would have seen it as the end of a typical high school romance, something to be sad about, maybe even depressed, but Bella's reaction must have seemed over the top.

So when I read the harsh thoughts going through Jessica's mind on that very first day, I was a bit shocked.
Exactly how I felt. :D

Personally, I was shocked, because I thought that she really did like her - although slightly jealous of Mike's interest in her. I thought that she only went off Bella because she retreated into her shell after Edward left.

Anyway, I was just wondering what you guys thought.
that's what i thought as well, she's an absolute dog if you ask me

What kind of dog? I don't like chihuahuas, so I hope she's not one of those pesky little rats. ^.^

To Edward, Mike's "I wanna smack that" thoughts are hurtful. To us, Jessica's "I wanna kill that" thoughts are hurtful.

Woohoo! Point made, right? :D

Umm...sorry, but I don't know how to repost. My response to that is on the Mike Newton thread.

Why didn't I think of that?! ilovetwilight, you're a genius! Jessica is mean, mean, mean on the inside and all friendly, sugar and roses on the outside, which makes her a HYPOCRITE. Mike is a lustful horn-dog on the inside, but being Bella's friend in public doesn't make him a hypocrite. If there is one thing I HATE, it's a hypocrite.

I think that sums it up nicely!

This is an interesting statement considering that Bella herself is an unbelievably huge hypocrite.
