I know Edward hated what he did during this time. It made him the monster he didn't want to be. Maybe he had to go through this period, so his denial of human blood was his choice and not so much a burden. It became a true choice because he didn't like the way he was on human blood. He realized he was happier living around people and his family. He chose to remain more human. Some people need to learn the hard way.

An impromptu "business" trip in the era of the 1900's would have been unlikely, especially with it taking place solely over the weekend, given the professional & higher level of society the Masens' lived & worked among.
Someone who did business on a Sunday was thought to be lacking Christian values & character unless the business was a service for which the public would suffer if it were not available.
An attorney doesn't quite fit that category, & it would not be unusual in the least for the priest or pastor of their church to question Edward & his mother as to Mr. Masen's whereabouts.
This leads me to believe the "impromptu" business trip is something else: something Mr. Masen is not telling his wife or son.
It's not an impromptu business trip :-P In the last part of the chapter, read between the lines. Mr. Masen makes an excuse so that he won't have to admit that he forgot about his son's concert.
I did not know about the whole christian thing, and I'm sorry I haven't done better research :-P
Thank you so much for reviewing!
