Silk is perhaps the most saintly of characters ever to appear in a science fiction novel. Two months after James's demise, Edward takes Bella to their high school prom, despite her broken leg and angry protests. It usually also has wider meanings such as 'history', 'tale', and 'story'.

However, he is determined to keep her human, despite her own will to become a vampire.
