Terrifying Monster - Watercolor by UtterlyAbsurdBella Terrifying Monster - Watercolor by UtterlyAbsurdBella
This scene takes place in Twilight, when Edward first shows Bella his room.  In the movie, when Bella says "I'm really not scared of you", Edward says "You really shouldn't have said that", and proceeds to throw her on his back and leap out the window into the trees. (cue "hang on tight spider monkey - GAG)  Climbing in the trees of the Olympic rainforest may have been cinematically, more appealing from a movie perspective. However, I really and truly love how it happens in the book.  So the drawing is how I imagine it would look.  

Excerpt from Twlight, Chapter 16, page 345

“I hate to burst your bubble, but you're really not as scary as you think you are. I don't find you scary at all, actually," I lied casually.


He stopped, raising his eyebrows in blatant disbelief.  Then he flashed a wide, wicked smile.
"You really shouldn't have said that," he chuckled.


He growled, a low sound in the back of his throat; his lips curled back over his perfect teeth.  His body shifted suddenly, half-crouched, tensed like a a lion about to pounce.
I backed away from him, glaring.


"You wouldn't."


I didn't see him leap at me - it was much too fast.  I only found myself suddenly airborne, and then we crashed onto the sofa, knocking it into the wall.  All the while, his arms formed an iron cage of protection around me - I was barely jostled.  But I still was gasping as I tried to right myself.
He wasn't having that.  He curled me into a ball against his chest, holding me more securely than iron chains.  I glared at him in alarm, but he seemed well in control, his jaw relaxed as he grinned, his eyes bright only with humor.


"You were saying?" he growled playfully.


"That you are a very, very terrifying monster," I said, my sarcasm marred a bit my breathless voice.


"Much better," he approved.”


-Stephenie Meyer - Twilight
