Author Note: this is going to be a drabble, so chapters will be anywhere between 100-600 words.
“Is Carlisle still in Forks?” Garrett asked as he turned back to the Denali’s completely missing the sudden jolt of surprise from his mate. He wasn’t going to ask her of her plans or what caused that look. He wanted to be surprised.
“Forks? As in Forks, Washington?” Bella asked sharply, she knew that name, that town. It was Charles’s hometown and the same town that she had found him years ago.
Eleazar flickered his gaze from one vampire to another before nodding. “Yes, they moved there about two years ago. Edward and Alice just graduated this passing year and if they follow their usual pattern then they will arrive back here or move to another location.”
Garrett turned back to Sabel with a frown, blinking when her eyes clouded over and her face set back into the mask he was so glad to see leave. “Do you know this town?”
“Yes, if you excuse me I must return home to make a phone call.” She apologised before turning on her foot to head back home, pausing when she heard Garrett shift. “You do not need to come back with me Nomad, stay and speak… bring her back if you want.”
The last was said reluctantly and through clenched teeth but it was still an offer, an offer that seemed to make Garrett swell with pride and glance at Kate who was stunned for she knew that the offer was meant for her. Topaz eyes met burnt orange in question.
“I wanted her to meet you, that is why she came and that… she has reasons to help,” Was his only explanation.
Kate nodded slowly understanding that what Garrett knew only he was to know and that whatever it was would not be pulled from his lips. “Does she know you are her mate? I see no mating mark.”
Garrett held back the growl as he saw Irena and Tanya balk, their noses scrunching with the familiar tell-tale of disgust as they snapped their gaze to the spot where his mate retreated in. It was a hard thing to swallow, his instincts flaring up to protect her even if she didn’t need it.
“She knows, has known since you turned up into the field. You know that the Mark needs not to be done right away, she is not ready and neither am I. Now we have things to discuss.” He growled out lowly, swallowing the venom that welled up in his throat along with the anger. Now was not the time.
Author Note: I felt bad about the author note and not being a chapter, so here is a chapter or two… don’t forget to review.
