"Your not that creative" - Edward

???

At the beginning of chapter 15 (The Cullens), Bella is shocked to see Edward still sitting there in her room after their night together, and she says "I was sure it was a dream". Edward says back to that "your not creative", but I dont understand that too well. Is Edward actually being rude about her creativeness?

When Edward says this, he is in no way being rude or trying to insult Bella. At this point in the story, both Edward and Bella's relationship is still very new and they are still coming to terms with their relationship.

When Edward tells Bella that she "isn't that creative", he is really saying that not even in her wildest of dreams could she have created something like this. In all honesty, could you??

Edward has been living for a century complacent with the fact that he may never have someone to share his "life" with. Now, not only has he found his soulmate, she is a human no less! For Bella, vampires have always been something that existed only books and horror movies. They were something to be feared. Now she is in love with one. Neither of them would have ever imagined that they would have been in a relationship with the other. No one's imagination is that good.

He was kidding. Previously Bella was naming off all the superheros and all these figures and he was messing with her that she wasn't picking anything else beside on that line so he was teasing her.

Edward was just teasing her. Recall one of the earlier conversations when Bella was guessing what Edward was and she named mostly super heroes like super man and spider man she even asked if he had got bitten by a spider or thrown in radioactive material. Edward replied with something similar along the lines of not being creative enough to pick anything besides super heroes. So Edward was just teasing Bella with how fantasy struck she can be.
