salut guys, i wanna thank the few people who gave me ideas, im using them in my suivant chapter, so keep a look out! enjoi!
The three women eyed us carefully, scrutinizing our every move, down to the tiniest shuffling of our feet.
They were not as I expected.
Usually witches, both men and women alike, look young and youthful. In fact, most of the pictures of gods were based on witches.
These however, were nothing like those pictures.
They all looked old, almost elderly old, yet they had youthfulness to them which I couldn’t place.
Their faces were lined and each of them had crow’s feet suivant to their menacing eyes. Their hands were claw like, and their finger nails a midnight black. The leader’s lips were pulled back over her jagged teeth in an attempt at a smile.
“Hello Nate,” her voice was like glass, cold and shallow.
Mina…I racked my brain, trying to remember where I had heard name before.
Gracie, I thought apprehensively, who are they?
I kept my expression blank as I thought the words to her, trying not to give myself away.
They’re the Sanderson sisters, she thought uneasily, Wilhelmina, Sarah and Marianne, they’re bad witches, B., avoid their eyes.
I dropped my eyes to the floor and took and unsteady step back.
The leader, Wilhelmina, watched my movement, with a wicked smirk on her face.
“Who are your friends, Thack?” she asked her voice thick with sarcasm.
Thackery ignored her, and just kept glaring, his scowl becoming plus prominent, looking as if it was becoming etched into his skin, and he tried to stare her down.
She met his gaze evenly, her smirk becoming plus pronounced.
She turned her gaze towards Thai and Nate.
“Thailer right?” she asked, her voice dripping with honey par the sweetness of it.
He didn’t take his eyes of her comrades.
“And toi must be Nate…right?”
He looked up at her, looking just left of her eyes, and nodded once.
Thackery hissed under his breath.
Her eyes snapped up, and she laughed.
It wasn’t a humorous laugh. It was a spine tingling-make-your-teeth-shatter- laugh.
“You seem so protective of your little family here Nate,” she sneered at him.
Ben had a growl building deep inside his chest.
I grabbed his arm, and threw his a warning look, which he didn’t see.
Patience. I cautioned him, squeezing his arm plus tightly.
Wilhelmina heard it too.
“So these are Bella and Ben?” she asked, moving two steps forward.
Nate and Thai roared in synchronization, and stood directly in front of us.
She paused and appraised us with pursed lips.
She turned her head a fraction to the left, towards her sisters.
“Looks like their better protected than toi thought Mary…” they each laughed another bone chilling laugh.
“We’ll go now…” she started, walking backward, her sisters leading the way.
Her sisters dropped of the edge with grace, as Wilhelmina paused at the edge.
“See toi around.” She smiled a menacing smile.
She dropped from the cliff’s edge, just as her sisters.
Nate and Thai ran past to stand at the edge to make sure they were definitely gone.
We all stood still for around two minutes, while Nate, Thai and Thackery, triple checked that the coast was clear.
“They’re gone.” Thackery said, but toi could sense his desire to leave.
“Okay, let’s go…” Gracie-Elle agreed, and she began tugging my arms, breaking me from my tense stance.
“Bella, we need to go.”
Ben was pulling me along now, hard enough to force a response out of me.
I walked backwards, still staring at the same spot where the Sanderson Sisters disappeared.
They’ll tell us what they wanted eventually…
I had plus pressing matters to deal with right now.
“No, Nate, your not coming,” I argued with him threw my teeth, for what felt like the hundredth time.
After finally making it back to the tattoo parlor and Thackery and Ben had gone to do some scouting, Nate was irritating me, trying to persuade me to take him with me when I give the entire story to the Cullen’s and the Quileute’s.
On the run I had to think about what exactly I would say to them, yet nothing sounded right…
“Yeah, sorry I didn’t tell toi guys earlier, but, yeah, I’m a witch…I know scary right? Oh yeah, and I have powers which would probably make your skin crawl…so, yeah, sorry.” Didn’t exactly roll off the tongue, ou make them warm up to you.
I thought about the l’amour between Edward and me, and the friendship between Jake and myself. It was not something I wanted to forget, but I had no idea how they would react. The vision of their faces when Thackery told them…it was painful to watch. Especially because he mentioned the fact that it was because they left, that I turned this way.
That was the icing on the cake.
“Bella, we don’t know what they’re capable of-”
Nate had barely finished his sentence when I interrupted.
“Nate, I know these guys, they won’t hurt me unless I provoke them…”
He scowled at me and ground his teeth. Nate was always like a brother to me, and I was always a sister to him…but he’s has become twice as protective of me since I became a witch…and he found out I was dating a vampire.
Bella, I think one of us should go with you, Thackery interceded, his voice authorized. I know toi think toi know them, but now they know our secret, we have to be cautious.
I sighed mentally in defeat. I was never gonna win with two against me, unless…
Ben, what do toi think? I quickly asked, hoping luck would be with me, for once today.
I hate to say this B., but I agree with Thackery… he admitted quietly. I know Edward is a good guy and all, but we can’t underestimate them… it’s just too dangerous…he paused for a minute, thinking of something that would work well for all of us. I’ll go with Bella, toi guys wait for us at the car, so that if there’s any trouble toi can come-a-runnin’, but that way she’s not alone…
It was a good idea, but not what I promised them…
Okay, I thought, thinking quickly,what if…you all wait at the car, that way I can montrer them that I trust them, and if there’s any trouble toi can come…it’s a win, win situation!
It was silent as they thought it through, but I could see them starting to agree to it…all except…
“Bella…”Nate said, his voice dripping in disapproval, “I don’t know if…”
I kicked him in the shin.
“Ow!” he complained, looking at me with a incerdulous look in his eye.
“Dumbass…” I muttered
His eyes narrowed. “If toi die, I’m telling.”
I laughed and Ben and Thackery joined in.
I was going to sort things out between us and them. They deserved to know the truth, and they deserved the benefit of the doubt. I knew that they would never hurt me, but my brothers were right…I didn’t know how they would take this, so I felt a little better when I knew they were going to be there for me, even if I couldn’t see them, I would hear them and they would see me…things were starting to look up, except for one thing…
How do toi explain to your former Friends and family...
that it's your job to kill them...?
