Charles cocked his head to the side as the sound of footsteps reached his ears, oh he heard them coming of course from a mile away but he wasn’t too sure if they were coming here or passing on buy.
“The door is open.” He muttered, flicking the paper up before him once again.
“Kickass!” A feminine voice stated.
He was up in a flash a snarl tearing from his lips, not letting the sudden unexpected shift of the female take him off guard as she used his power. He expected Fredrik and Oliver not three of the Volturi. How did they find him? He could shift away his scent.
“Honour, duty, valour,” Demetri rumbled, stepping forward.
His coiled body snapped straight as the words rolled off the speakers tongue with ease. Charles knew those words and knew the rest; it was what was uttered by them all: Enyo, Fredrik and Oliver. It was a Whitlock Code, an ode.
“United we stand, united we conquer…” He replied slowly, suspiciously. “How do you know those words and the meaning?”
“Enyo… is a friend.” Now those words rolled off Demetri’s tongue oddly, it was not something that one usually uttered in a statement.
Charles scoffed and raised his brow sceptical. “You don’t sound so sure of that, nor would I believe she friend a Volturi Guard. Not with her past.”
“Well she’s not a friend perse.” Felix hummed. “Nor are we Volturi Guards, you of all should know that looks can be deceiving Phobos.”
“Say that I believe you, why are you here and how did you find me?” He asked, folding his arms.
Demetri sighed and removed the cloak in a careful movement before rolling up his sleeves carefully, revealing the marred skin. He pointed to a particular scar at his wrist bone, one that shone out above the rest as it was newer and more viciously bitten. It was also a scar that Charles had seen, one that he and his Venom Brothers carried.
‘This scar in this placement, my Warriors means that I trust you; trust whoever has it and you should too. It’s not lightly given nor known outside those who know I do it. Only my coven members and you three have it.’
When he saw that the soldier before him believe his words did Demetri continue. “I’ve met you once before, long time ago. I’m a Tracker, the Tracker and all I need is eye contact and you’re forever trapped in my mind… you cannot hide from me.”
“And to answer your question, we’re here about the Cullen’s.”
