Sekhmet was the lioness-headed goddess of war and destruction. She was the sister and wife of Ptah. She was created by the fire of Re’s eye. Re created her as a weapon of vengence to destroy men for their wicked ways and disobedience to him. She is generally portrayed as a woman with the head of a lioness surmounted by the solar disk and the uraeus. The name “Sekhmet” comes from the root sekhem which means “to be strong, mighty, violent”. She was identified with the goddess Bastet, and they were called the Goddesses of the West (Sekhmet) and the East (Bastet). Both were shown with the heads of lionesses
Anuket was originally a water goddess from Sudan. Her name meant, “to embrace” which was interpreted to mean that her embrace during the annual Nile floods fertilized the fields. Later, she became a goddess of lust, whose attributes and cult were obscene. However, her cult’s origins can be traced back to the Old Kingdom. She is closely associated with Nubia. She is not an imported goddess though. Anuket was generally depicted as a woman wearing a tall headdress made either of reeds or of ostrich feathers, often holding a sceptre and the ankh symbol, but was occasionally shown in the form of a gazelle.
“Amun, if you want to go, no one is forcing you to stay,’ Carlisle said calmly.
“You’re stealing half my coven, Carlisle!” Amun shrieked, stabbing one finger at Benjamin. “Is that why you called me here? To steal from me?
Carlisle sighed and Benjamin rolled his eyes.
“Yes, Carlisle picked a fight with the Volturi, endangered his whole family, just to lure me here to my death,” Benjamin said sarcastically. “Be reasonable, Amun. I’m committed to do the right thing here - I’m not joining any other coven. You can do whatever you want, of course, as Carlisle has pointed out.”
….He turned on Benjamin. “I gave you life. You’re wasting it.”
Benjamin’s face looked colder than I’d ever seen it; the expression contrasted oddly with his boyish features. “It’s a pity you couldn’t replace my will with your own in the process; perhaps then you would have been satisfied with me.”
Amun’s eyes narrowed. He gestured abruptly to Kebi, and they stalked past us out the front door.
You were gathered around with a few other nomads, chatting
about the best spots to feed while in Forks. You froze suddenly when you felt a small tug in your chest. Your lips curved into a frown
and you turned around to see Carlisle and Esme come back with another coven. Nothing of import.
“So, why would a witch want to help a bunch of vampires?” You turned away from watching Bella work on her shield to see the vampire who was staring at you before now standing next to you.
You gave him a smile. “Alice is a friend, and she called in a favor.”
“Forgive me, I seem to have forgotten my manners.” He grabbed both of your hands and placed his cold lips on your knuckles is a short kiss. “I am Benjamin, of the Egyptian coven.”
Your gave turned into a curious one. “Edward has mentioned you.”
He looked surprised. “Did he now?”
“He told me about your abilities.” You turned your body to face him. “Your control over the elements more specifically.”
He smiled. “Would you like to see?”
When you nodded, he stepped back and created a dragon made of fire, much like the one you yourself had created. Deciding to have some fun, you created another dragon and made it fly alongside his. Together, you put on a show and caused them to dance around. When you both decided to stop and put out the flames, you heard clapping. When you turned, you saw that everyone had been watching.
Emmett step forward a bit and looked to Benjamin. “You told her that she was you mate, then?”
You looked at Benjamin in surprise, and you could faintly hear someone smack Emmett. “What?”
He looked shy and embarrassed. “I didn’t want to say anything, yet, but yes, you are my mate, Y/N.”
