“Enyo? As in…?” Carmen trailed off, her eyes shooting to her mate and back.
Eleazar nodded in understanding, suddenly so many things came to light. Like why he wasn’t able to see what her powers were, she was a shield. He saw her use it as a Physical but he knew Enyo was a mental one as well; he’s heard stories of mental powers unable to affect her.
But what she was renowned for besides the horror tales was her affinity with fire. He had only met one Fire Starter in his whole life as a vampire and that was when he was working for the Volturi, they saw him as a threat so they took him out. They tore him apart and dropped him in an active volcano after they realised normal fire wouldn’t work on him.
“The things you must have seen… how you escaped…” He stated sadly.
Bella nodded. “Miguel debilitated me, tore me apart and scattered me across states. It took me years to reattach myself, that was his punishment but it was worth it to make sure the Vampire world thought I was dead.”
“But why?” Tanya asked, she knew the stories and though she was fearful… Sabel had not done a thing to harm them.
“Would you do anything for your coven?” Bella asked, earning a nod. “I tore my brother apart and threw him into a fire, I made my venom brother think I killed his mate and Jasper before throwing him in. I suffered years under Maria’s cruel hand to gain her the territory she desired… I killed off my coven in Maria’s eyes so she wouldn’t use them as leverage but I couldn’t leave…”
Her eyes slipped shut as venom burned her eyes, squeezing her mates hand gratefully as he clasped her own. “I couldn’t leave and I grew so weary. It is Maria and Miguel who keep the Volturi from interfering with America. If one or the other were taken out then they will come and kill or take those in the war, so I made a deal with Miguel and well… I escaped and my plan worked. I looked for my coven, I found my Progeny’s happy, my brother was supposedly mated and happy so I left them be. I stayed dead.”
“This is why you don’t want us to mention you, is it because you wish to stay ‘dead’ so to speak or because you don’t know how to tell them?” Tanya asked.
“I’m terrified they will hate me for the lies I have done.” She admitted. “I need time to gather my courage.”
“Then we will not mention you, not yet.”
