Ella punched her assailant in the stomach, knocking the wind out of him and feeling accomplished. He had went limp for just a moment and in that moment she felt she had just won but she soon felt razor sharp pain as he slashed at her, suddenly forming claws. Her scream was cut off as Mered startled her, pouncing on the man. He had been out with her brother, Nigel and Cadoc but she supposed now he was back. She could feel the anger coming off of him in waves and a new scream came from her lungs when the man she had been fighting cut his head clean off with his claws "Mered!" Tears streamed down her face even when she saw his body still moving. He simply picked up his head and it went right back on his body, his skin connecting with eachother again like it was a completely natural thing to happen.
He had told her he was impossible to kill but she had never seen anything like that before. The reality of her mate being basically indestructible was sinking in watching him fight this thing. Mered brought the man near death, wishing he could snuff out his miserable life but Ella was right there and he had promised both her and his daughter he'd never take a life again unless he had to. Angrily he spat his words at the man "I wish I could kill you, I want to so badly for hurting her but she wouldn't want me to. If you so much as look at her again though you will be dead before you even realize what happened. Go! Get the hell away from her before I can't keep myself from killing you"
The man limped and stumbled away fearfully as Mered walked over to Ella and lifted her up. She could see the worry in his face as he carried her back to their house and inside. Mered cleaned her wounds, waiting to ask her what happened until after he had bandaged her up. "You know how young male demons are. He saw me and wanted sex or a fight. I wanted neither but again, you know how young male demons are"
"This is why I shouldn't leave you alone"
"I would have been okay"
"Your wounds say otherwise"
"says the man that got his head cut off"
"Almost anything can happen to me and I'd be okay. My body just puts itself back together unless you do it a certain way. I hope me loseing my head didn't scare you"
"It did but you telling me and me seeing it are two different things. I mean wow, your head really did just go right back on"
