If you haven’t read Chapter 26, here is the link:
My mind felt completely clear as we started to head over to the field. My Aunt Marie stayed inside, keeping the protection spell going. I held Dean’s hand, walking side-by-side with everyone. I looked over at my brother as he nodded.
The closer we got, we saw more. Hybrids as far as we could see. We didn’t know how many there was, but there were two males that we more in front of the pack. We completely stopped as we heard one of the men talking.
“Why don’t we see if we can work this out?” He said as he and the other man headed closer to us. The one next to us looked familiar to me, but I couldn’t remember where I had known him from. Logan stepped in front of us all.
“You know very well what will happen. Hybrids shouldn’t exist. It’s an unbalance in nature.” Logan spoke as he looked over at Lewy and Colin.
“Your kind isn’t welcome.” Lewy spoke as he looked over at Colin, the both nodded.
“Ah, back then we weren’t, but maybe there is a change of heart. I want to discuss this with Athena.” The man spoke again. Dean stood in front of me.
I looked over at them both, they looked like normal humans, but so didn’t the vampires and werewolf’s. “Speak then.” I said as I stood next to my brother. “Whatever you have to say, say it. I’d like to know who killed my mother.”
“But of course,” He paused, placing his hand on the other man’s shoulder. “Your Ricky did the honors, love.”
My heart dropped as I looked at Ricky. Anger filled my heart as I looked into his eyes. He looked heartbroken. I looked at our brother who looked like he was going to jump and kill him. Before we could stay anything else, Lewy and Colin popped into our minds.
‘Do what you’ve been practicing, once they are set on you guys, we will jump in. Make sure it’s up before we start.’
We all looked at each other and nodded. We gather hands, and starting chanting. I once we started, I could feel the power rushing in out of my body as the power grew stronger.
With James with us, we were stronger than ever.
I peak my eyes over to see the hybrids running at us with full force, but once they even tried to touch us, the were turned to dust. Lewy and Colin lead the others, killing the ones that were trying to flee. I closed my eyes and kept focusing on the spell.
After an hour or so, we ended the spell and looked around. Everything around us had turned into dust, expect the two men. Lewy and Colin brought them over as they both laid on their knees. Ricky kept staring at me, as I gave him a hateful look.
“You know how much trouble you have tried to cause?” Logan spoke at the other man, but still kept glancing at Ricky. I wonder if Ricky was someone we knew.
“I don’t know, just kill me now.” The other man spoke, and so Logan did. He instantly turned to dust.
I looked over at Ricky as his eyes changed from a black to their normal color. “Athena? Is that you?” He asked. I looked confused as I looked over at Logan.
“Do you know him, Logan?” I asked as Logan looked over at Lewy. “What’s going on?”
“Well, Athena, you had me erase him from your memories. If I didn’t, we would’ve lost the war.” Lewy explained as I looked over at Ricky. Still, nothing rang a bell.
“Why would you do that?” Ricky said as he looked at me, heartbroken. “The Athena I knew would never do that. I thought you loved me?”
“Ricky, she only did what was best. After all, you killed our mother, would you want her to remember her first love that murdered our mother?” Logan said as it still burned my mind that this Ricky would do so.
“I-I killed her?” Ricky said, he looked rather surprise. He looked at me. “I’m so sorry, Athena. Please, just kill me.”
I grabbed the sword that killed mother and plunged it into his heart, he instantly turned to dust. I dropped the sword and headed back inside, with Dean running behind me.
“Are you alright?” He asked as I grabbed him and pulled him in for a kiss. I felt his hands around my waist as we kept kissing. He pulled away and leaned his forehead against mine. “What do you want to do to celebrate?” He asked.
“I think I’ve got a few ideas in mind.” I smiled as I grabbed his hand as we headed inside.
“Ricky killed her?” As a repeated what Tanner just told me.
“So, what happens now?” Tanner asked as James came over, bringing me a glass of water.
“Well, we can’t leave this place until we have replacements, but even then, it’s dangerous since we are one of the most rare types of witches.” I explained as I took a sip of the water. “Lewy and Colin will go back to where they need to go. As for you, I think it would be best for you to pack up any of your stuff and come back to stay with us, if not move closer to us.”
“As long as it’s okay for me to stay here, I will. I rather be with my kids than away from them.” He said.
“Of course it is, there are plenty of rooms in the halls if you wanted to stay with your kids.” Elle came in and added. “After everything that you have been, I think it would be best that you stay by their side.”
Tanner nodded and started to turn away. “Don’t go alone, Tanner. Taken Lewy or Colin with you. I don’t want anything to happened to you.” I said, giving him a hug before he left.
