Chapter Seven in “Twilight” is entitled “Nightmare” it is located on pages 129-151.  Bella comes home after her trip to LA Push and goes up to her bedroom.  Bella falls asleep and has a nightmare.  Bella awakens from her dream screaming. It is 5:00 AM and Bella can’t go back to sleep.  She researches vampire on the Internet.  She evaluates all the vampire information and decides Edward fits some criteria like pale skin, speed, strength, and beauty, but he doesn’t fit other criteria.  Bella decides that she is completely drawn to Edward. In her dream, she realizes she screamed out of fear for Edward’s safety.  On Monday, back at school, she runs into Mike who again tries to ask her out on a date. Bella bluntly tells him that she isn’t interested, but that Jessica is. Bella looks for Edward, but he isn’t there. At lunch she notices that his whole family is absent too. Later, Jessica calls and changes the day she and Bella are supposed to go dress shopping because Mike has asked her out. Bella goes outside to read and falls asleep after being upset that all the characters in the novels seem to be named Edward. Bella wakes when she hears Charlie’s cruiser pull up, and has an eerie feeling she isn’t alone. Bella tells Charlie that she wants to go dress shopping with the girls. Charlie is confused because Bella isn’t going to the dance, and then decides that it’s just a girl thing.  The next day at school Cullens are absent again. Right after school Bella meets up with the Jessica and Angela so they can go dress shopping in Port Angeles.
