Maledictum Magae Sneak Peek - Ch. 15

“It’s extraordinary,” Aro whispered, clasping his hands together beneath his chin as if in prayer.

Caius growled lowly to his right. “It needs to be disposed of.”

The eldest brother tilted his head to the side, examining her, and smiled widely. “All in good time.”

“Why don’t you go to her, Aro?” A deep, hollow voice penetrated the air as Marcus finally glanced toward the witch. “You know what you want to do, brother. She won’t stop you.” His eyes slid warily to the side where Edward clenched his fists, readying to attack. “Though he might.”

“I am not worried,” Aro said, never taking his eyes off of Bella. “The rest will handle him.”

He took a step forward, outstretching a cold hand. “Come to me, dear child,” he sang. “Let me have a look at you.”

He walked a few more steps until he was nearly hovering over her. She cowered away from him and the hand he so readily offered.

“If you touch her…” Edward warned menacingly, his entire body shaking.

“You’ll do what?” Aro spit back, turning his gaze on the young vampire. “I could rip your head off before you could even move. Do not test me, boy. You work for me. I own you and you will do as you're told. Don’t forget it.”

He looked back down at Bella; her body huddled in a ball. The stench of blood hung dangerously in the air around her. Aro licked his lips. “No harm will come to you, Isabella. Please, take my hand.”
