Chapter Forty

They spoke as they cleaned, each one asking a question after the other. It was a different, bonding over past pain and chaos.

“There is not much to say really, I was changed during the Revolution, I don’t know who changed me but I was the last of my company to die.” Garrett explained, it was also the reason why he was so curious and in the south during the Civil War and then again around the time he got captured.

Bella paused at that, her hand stopping mid way between her and the chunk of wall in thought. “I was changed the same night as my brother, we burned together for five days.”

“Five? W… Five?” The surprise was evident in his voice as he spluttered out the number.

“I lived in Galveston, my husband had died not long before and it was Jasper who got me out. He broke rank and went AWOL to make sure I escaped the war that had come because I was too stubborn and was helping the soldiers evacuate. We met the Sisters together, knowing something was wrong but my brother is a gentleman.” She huffed out in a strained laugh. “I was going to die, he knewwe knew. It was then his agony leaked out of him, stilling Maria. The Demon spared us for she tasted the gifts in our blood.”

Startled realisation washed over him as he took in the words. “You and the Major are twins?”

“Yes Nomad, we are Twins though we may not look it.”

Twins who were changed together had stronger Gifts, it was why they were highly sought after. There had been many changed during the wars, but only two sets remained: the Witch Twins and… well really he should have known this already.

“Huh.” Was all he had to say to that.

Bella let out a small genuine laugh at that while throwing her pile of debris in the pyre. “You’re a strange one, Nomad.”

“Tell me something I don’t know, Warrior.” He replied back with a teasing grin and oh, it seems that name is going to stick.

Author Note: I am honestly surprised at how many of you were shocked over Alice and Edward… really?
