Everyone watched with bated breath as the two couples launched forward. Enyo lashed out with her whips as Garrett ducked and rolled towards Oliver who grasped Fredrik and flipped him up over the fire.
The two collided with a resounding boom and into the edges of the trees with a crack. Enyo twirled fast, the fire spinning around her in a vortex as Fredrik braved an attack. Those watching staggered as a wave of confusion rolled over them thickly, casting the Major a look who shook his head and jerked to the vampire facing his sister.
Enyo let out a bark of laughter. “I give you credit, but you forgot who taught you that strategy Mijo.”
Peter, Jasper and Charlotte’s eyes bugged out of their heads as the endearment spilled from their sister’s lips. Charles snorted from their side, his lips quirked ever so slightly as Fredrik stumbled before grunting as she delivered a strong kick to his stomach and flung him up with her fire.
Garrett flew from the trees after Oliver and kicked up, flipping over the fire and spun, his foot connecting with the soldier with ease to protect his mate and flung himself back, catching himself with his hand as his Mates fire swirled over him.
He focused on protecting and defence as Sabel fought her own.
“This is child’s play for her.” Charlie muttered before rolling his shoulders with a grin. “Time to kick it up a notch.”
Loud warm laughter escaped from Enyo’s lips as she saw Charles dodge and duck around her fire with ease a smirk on his lips as he did so.
“A challenge then?” She laughed loudly before spinning and pushing off her Mates’ back as he ducked down once more, her fire flicking out as she used him as a springboard and kept her Children away from her mate as Charlie tried to distract her.
There were some things that needed to be fine-tuned, something that will be done but it’s not as bad as she thought. Her prodigies aren’t as rusty as she thought but her mate was several seconds slower than he should be as she felt her fires graze against him several times.
“AH!” She cried out as pain, anguish, fear and lethargy hit her and she dropped to a knee, her fire flickering out. Screams filled the air heralding the scent of ash and blood, her body tensed as she tried to ride out the memory.
Garrett rushed to her side immediately as well as Oliver and Fredrik, the latter pushing as much calm as he could to his mistress. His eyes snapped to the Major in shock and slight fear, hand clenched tightly on Oliver’s arm. Charlie hissed slightly as he ducked to look at his Mistresses eyes and backed away just as quick, pulling his venom brothers with him.
“You pushed her too far.” He hissed as he backed further away. “Hide. HIDE!”
Peter staggered back grasping his head. Anger… pain… fire… fire… fire… shock… she can’t control… “Flashback.”
The Major nodded as he looked at the field and moved to position himself so his back was to the forest, he knew that pushing the emotions to his sister was a bad idea and now he’ll have to face her wrath. Hopefully it will be cathartic for them both.
A low rumble escaped his sister once Pete and Char got Garrett away, her dark eyes snapping up to his.
His lips pulled back into a mocking smile. “Hello sister.”
