Bella watched as the coven left and yet the Nomad stayed, of course there were many assurances to the Succubi that he would be fine here. There were many things he still needed to discuss with her and he wanted to do it without them breathing down their neck.
He also could see how tense the warrior got the longer they stayed, it was something he knew all too well after many years in the southern wars.
“You lied.” He stated once the others were out of view.
She nodded. “Yes.”
“Why?” He was curious.
“Because I do not trust them, but I cannot go against my instincts to lie to you.” She explained sounding tired before turning on her foot and marching back inside, gesturing for him to follow.
Garrett frowned but did so, closing the door behind him before falling into one of the chairs in the lounge. It was a sign of trust to her, he willingly sitting in a way that showed he trusted her not to kill him; that he knew she wouldn’t.
“Whatever I tell you stays in this house, between you and me yes?” She asked and Garrett paused for a moment to read her face and weigh the seriousness of the conversation before nodding.
Bella sighed before looking away out the window, turning her back towards him once more and forcing herself to relax. “My name is Isabella, I was born in 1844; Houston, Texas and changed in 1882.”
“What?” Garrett asked while sitting up in shock the second the drawl and the name…
“The wars then were brutal, my mistresses more so. I have done horrible things, unspeakable things by their side and the side of my family. I had thought I’d gone mad many times when I was torn apart an’ thrown in or near a pyre only t’wake when I was assembled again. It was then that I found my powers.” Bella interrupted while holding up a hand covered in flames for him to see. “They called me Enyo and my brother Ares.”
