Chapter Forty-five

The closer they got to Denali the quieter Bella became. Oh she may look calm and stoic in the outside but she raved like a violent storm on the inside.

They had passed her home so she could extinguish the fires before continuing on, following their stench from when they crossed into her land before. She could smell the faint scents of two of them which only pissed her off more and made her determined to strengthen her border with her scent.

She also noticed that it was not the one Garrett called Kate, her electric scent always veered down her boarder but never over. This pleased her a little, a vampire that respected another border.

Garrett led them deeper into the wilds and along the familiar route to the Denali’s home. It was a modest two story log cabin that blended well with the snow and woods and didn’t scream pretentiousness like Carlisle’s homes.

“Garrett, we did not expect you for some time.” Tanya greeted as they came within five hundred feet of them. Each of the Denali coven lingered in the front of their home in greeting, their eyes lit with surprise.

“Neither did I but I have received a call from Peter,” He replied as they came to a stop, “It seemed important, it involved Carlisle’s coven.”

Eleazar nodded as he took a step forward. “Young Edward found a mate in a human, I am to believe that the Volturi have found out about her and Edward’s refusal to turn her.”

“That’s impossible.” Bella hissed out drawing their attention. “The second we touch our mates when they are human there is no stopping the need to change them.”

“I know this but they are refusing to believe such truths. Carlisle should know better than anyone, Jasper as well but Alice and Edward have preached restraint and above such savageness. Their word is law in the coven due to their gifts.”

Kate couldn’t help but snort at that. “Never bet against Alice. And Edward, he believes that we are soulless creatures and he wishes not to damn her.”

“I do not understand, Carlisle is the leader of the coven and yet he follows the word of the younglings? Does he not confer with the Major about the situation? Does he not care about bringing the wrath of the Italian King’s down upon us?” Bella asked with a frown, she had gathered the rough estimation of the status quo in the coven and she did not like what she was hearing. “How old is Carlisle?”

“He is over three hundred years.” Carmen replied with a frown, watching as the woman frowned in thought.

Garrett moved closer to Sabel as he watched as her eyes darkened, hands clenching ever so subtly while she shifted from one foot to the other. He knew from the expression alone she was thinking about their conversation at the warehouse.

Author Note: I have no idea okay, but Gah… The Denali will be on their side, Edward and Alice will die but before or after the volturi I do not know.
