I approached the Fox house and saw Ava step out onto her porch closing a bright red door behind her. Her long sandy blonde hair hung over her face making it hard to see her eyes, but I could sense she was very upset. As I walked closer, I was struck by another very powerful aroma. I felt as if I had just stepped into a strawberry field bursting with a scent so sweet it made my mouth water. I realized instantly that Ava had enchanting abilities. To look at her was enchanting enough, but that fragrance was intoxicating.
I flew up into a tree a couple of feet ahead so I could stay out of sight, but keep a good eye on our surroundings. The wind gusted past us, blowing her hair back over her face and I could see she was in pain. She wrapped her slender arms across her purple button down shirt and started walking slowly seemingly unaware of anything around her. I could tell she did not realize I was following her. She seemed deep in her thoughts listening to music. Aiden had said that the Fox girls were good looking, but this was an understatement. Ava’s long body was overshadowed by the innocent beauty of her face. Most of those with enchanting abilities are beautiful; it is part of their seduction, I reminded myself.
Her crystal blue eyes were filled with worry as she walked down the long shady street towards a large wooded area. The perfect target. If Connor was correct, the Sabatinos had someone watching her too, waiting for the best opportunity to strike.
Ava began to slowly walk through the forest and I thought it best if I went around so that she would not hear my footsteps. I did not like having her out of my sight for any point in the woods, but I remembered how important Connor said it was to keep our presence unknown to her unless there were no other options. He said he owed it to Victoria.
Connor was always very respectful and compassionate, which made him such a good leader. I did not question him when he told me my boundaries.
I ran through the other side of the woods, zigzagging around trees and jumping over rocks and fallen branches. The damp leaves on the ground would make others slip or lose their footing, not me; my speed left my feet hardly touching the ground.
All I could think as I glided through the dense woods was why had she chosen such a secluded place to go by herself? Evil wizards or not, this was not safe for any girl alone. I came upon a clearing and noticed a large faded green water tower.
Ava was already lying on a large pile of leaves, her delicate arms stretched out to her sides, eyes closed. The wind made the leaves gently dance around her perfect body as if they could hear the music she was listening to. She looked so peaceful, so breakable…like an angel.
