Hello everyone, first I'd like to say that I love Twilight and I'm not trying to defame it in any way but I need some help here. Bella's gift is a mental shield that she had even before she was turned. I was told that it's explained later on in the series, but I don't have the money to buy it yet. Can someone please give me the in depth explanation of her, the who how and why thing. Thank you SO MUCH!!!
