“Kate is my friend; there has never been anything between us. She is family.” He explained after a few minutes of silence. “I cannot say the same for Irina and Tanya; they’ve tried and have failed.”
Bella felt her shoulders drop, she was so tired. “I cannot help that I feel this way Nomad, my instincts will always scream and demand their heads for even looking at you and they might never go away, claim or no claim.”
“Then I reserve the right to growl at any male I damn well please that comes near you.” This had her head snapping up in surprise. “I am a jealous creature too Sabel, that is such of our nature.”
“True, but my temper is…” She trailed off struggling for the words.
Garrett smiled then. “Legendary? Oh I know, I’ve seen and felt it. Come, we’ll go there together and I’ll introduce you to Kate. I know that once you get to know her, you’ll like her.”
She hesitated for only a moment before nodding, the bodies were in pieces but the warehouse needed to burn. “Just give me a second.”
When her mate nodded she turned and sliced her arm along the familiar trail of her claw marks and let her venom spill over the bodies. It was a familiar pattern and though her flames were hot enough to burn, she did not have the time or luxury to make sure they did. Venom just helped it burn harsher and longer.
With a flick of her wrist the bodies burst into flames.
Garrett did not question his mates actions even though his body screamed to heal the second her venom hit the air, he had to admire her though. He had never used his own venom to burn bodies before, he usually buried them deep or shoved them in a dumpster.
It depended in where he fed though.
“I am going to have to explain to your friends that I am Enyo, aren’t I?” The question was soft, the wind nearly stealing it away.
Garrett shook his head. “Not today, we do not need to explain who you are or who you’re related to. We can just explain that you will help because I asked.”
“That’s… quite… thank you. I do not know what trouble my brother is in but if Peter has gotten the information then it must be bad. His gift was quirky that way, letting him know small details or the most extreme but it was always right.” She hummed in thought.
This caught his interest. “What is his talent? He refuses to call it a gift, just something extra like mine.”
“He still says that?” She asked wistfully, a fond smile upon her face. “My brother was in the Navy when he was changed, he had the ability to see and know things. He would be classed as a clairvoyant in these times but he does not see the future.”
“He just knows.” Garrett groaned out as Peter’s usual words spilled from his lips.
Bella just cast him a smile. “Exactly.”
Author Note: I felt the need to explain Peters gift.
