Bella kept her breathing even when Caleb came back into the room. Not that it mattered; he was so deep in thought he didn’t even seem to notice her.
She’d gotten answers to a lot of questions, but she still had others like was he ever intending to tell her that his mother killed Nina? When did he meet Titania? How long had they been seeing each other?
Actually, she could answer that last question. He’d been cheating on Bella the whole time. Using her as a distraction while her life imploded. He probably told Titania about it, and they laughed about the dumb mortal cop who was taking the fall for their crimes.
It was all lies, his sob story about being estranged from his family, his warnings. Caleb was just as corrupt as the rest of them. Maybe worse, because he pretended to be good.
And this wand? Controlling the dead sounded horrifying. Bella had seen enough movies to know that once the zombies showed up, all bets were off.
Supernaturals were dangerous; Caleb admitted as much himself. And Bella knew what happened to mortals who got caught in the crossfire. They end up like Eliza or Penny.
Maybe she was meant to cross paths with Alice. If she hadn’t made this mistake, she wouldn’t be able to save her.
But first, she needed a plan.
In addition to the CC I regularly use in the game and buildings from the Fleuralia Save File, I used the following builds and custom content. This story takes a ton of mods and cc, so if you see your work and I failed to tag it somewhere, please message me.
