A difficult choice
Tatia was finally healed, and she was determined to enjoy more than ever in her life, finally if I may say. But for now we must find the werewolf, perhaps even the werewolves because they moved often in packs. Elijah doesn't speak to me, there was a real tension between us. I decided to fix that :
-Elijah, I'm really sorry, I didn't think …
-I don't want your excuses, you knew very well what you were doing at that moment! I saw it in your eyes.
It was true. I knew very well what I did when I drived the dagger in his heart. I had really ashamed of myself, I knew that it would take time for Elijah to grant me his forgiveness. One evening Tatia knocked at the door when I opened it I was horrified by what I saw. Her eyes were bloodshot, his mouth was twisted into a monstrous grin. Blood dripped from her mouth and her beautiful dress, originally white, had turned red. She had obviously begun. I dragged her inside, praying that no one seen her. Later in the day Rebekah led me to the barn where I found three bodies piled upon each other. Among them was a child, I gave him six years, not more. This was proof that Tatia was a monster. She had acted out of pure pleasure, not for feed herself … I ran to warn my brother but when I opened the door Tatia was sitting beside him, weeping. They looked at me, us both.
-What's wrong with you? Asked he, really angry.
I noticed that our discussions started with that, since our transformation, "What's wrong with you?".
However I do not understand what he blamed myself. Seeing my incomprehension, he looked Tatia, and beckoned him to explain herself:
-He told me I had to feed myself, I could take that I wanted.
she dared not look at me.
-I told you to learn to master yourself, I replied, you killed a whole family. Elijah stared her, she had not apparently tells everything about it. I was furious against her. How had she dared to accuse me? I saved her!
I should have let her die.
The weeks passed and Tatia changed … Most arrogant, nastiest she accumulated victims, we didn't know what to do. The only solution was to kill her but he was out of the question, despite all she had done , I loved her. But one evening she went too far. Rebekah had accompanied Tatia for hunting in the forest, when a few hours later, our little sister came face covered with blood and a nasty wrist injury. It resembled that of Tatia, that of Enrick .. a werewolf bite.
-What happened? I asked.
-It is because of her! She wept.
-Come on, don't say that! Tatia is not a werewolf, Elijah intervened.
Obviously, he didn't believe Tatia capable of such a thing. I trusted Rebekah, because although I loved that woman I knew what she was capable. I stared at my sister, and then gave her my wrist. She pierced my flesh with her teeth and drank greedily. She told us then what happened in the forest. According to my sister, Tatia had met a "friend" of hers who was actually a werewolf. Tatia didn't supported the presence and remarks of my sister on her behavior she had convinced the werewolf to track Rebekah. My sister ran as fast as possible but the beast had caught up her ... she threw herself over her by biting her wrist before leaving. Elijah and I,we couldn't believe. We left very angry, ready to settle our accounts with Tatia. Once at the location indicated by Rebekah, we saw first no one, when a man sprung from a bush. Elijah grabbed him by the arms, now before he turns into a werewolf. I was ready to plunge my hand into his chest to extract the heart, but Elijah stopped me with a hand gesture.
-What? I asked.
-Wait, perhaps we should question him before ..
-Tatia will not tell us the links between them, maybe that him, he will speak.
We knew how to do to speak him, a plant can burn his skin, much like us with the verbena, but back then we had no knowledge of this poison. After several hours of torture, he finally tell us everything. They were many, a pack. Tatia had found them while trying to flee. This man had fallen in love with her, and he protected her from other wolves. One day she asked him to bite her, he didn't understand why but he did.it was to trap us, in fact. She knew that once low, we'll not see her as a danger. And that night, so, he had seen her and obeyed her order, bite Rebekah. Elijah gave me a nod, I did not wait a second and I extracted the heart of the werewolf. Tatia came shortly after, look innocent. We looked at her. She understood, she tried to escape but I caught her by the size and blocked her arms. Elijah broke the chair, which created a kind of wooden stakes. He planted it directly in the heart without even a word, or explain himself with her. I thought this event, sad, can bring my brother and me, but Elijah was still too angry and decided to leave.
