sekhmet · goddess of war and destruction

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

“Come on Ben! Make the wave bigger, what do you think we bring you for?” You called to Benjamin who had become one of your best friends since the whole Volturi incident, along with his mate Tia.

“I don’t know if that’s such a good idea Y/N.” He yelled back, worry colouring his tone.

“Why not? Afraid you’ll drown?” You mocked.

Turns out, you really shouldn’t mock the guy who controls the water.

anuket · water goddess of elephantine 

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.

It was dark outside as you sat by the lake. Moonlight illuminated the whole place and was reflected in the water, beautified your surroundings. There were animal sounds coming from the woods behind you and you loved listening to them. You closed your eyes, enjoying this beautiful moment. Nothing was better than sitting by the lake at night where nothing and no one could disturb you. When you came here, you could think about everything. Sometimes you would make a picnic on your own or read your favorite books. Sometimes you sat here, all alone, and admired the nature’s beauty. But this time you were here to meet Benjamin. You already made your decision a long time ago. Honestly, you hadn’t told anyone about your plan, because it wasn’t anyone’s business anyway. The most you were afraid of was Benjamin. What would he think when you said you wanted to spend all eternity with him? What would he say when you told him he should turn you into a vampire?

You met him seven months ago at Reneesme’s birthday. Your sister Bella invited everyone, who helped them once to protect your little niece from the Volturi. So Benjamin was there too. The way you two met was kind of funny. You were in a hurry because Nessie was very thirsty and wouldn’t stop complaining and whining. She didn’t feel very well either, she was ill but despite her sickness Bella wanted to throw a birthday party for her so she could feel a little bit better. Well, as you were in the kitchen and poured orange juice into Nessie’s favorite cup, you heard someone entering the room. When you quickly turned around, you bumped into somebody and accidentally spilled the whole content on the person.

You stood there, not really sure what to do and what to say for a moment. Then you faced him. A young and handsome boy was in front of you. You were instantly mesmerized by his beauty. He was a bloody-red -eyed boy with curly black hair. Not to mention his smile. He was beyond beautiful. You stared at each other for a long time. Then, you slowly woke up from your rigidity and noticed the mess you created. “Oh my god! I’m so sorry!” You called. You began to rub his shirt with your sleeve but made it only worse. “It’s alright.” He calmly said, pulling your hands in his. “It doesn’t matter.” You blushed out of embarrassment and hoped he wouldn’t notice. Once he saw your red cheeks, he chuckled which made you blush even more. “May I introduce myself?” He asked, putting a kiss on your knuckles. “I’m Benjamin from the Egyptian coven. You must be (Y/N), Bella’s sister. It’s a pleasure to meet you.” You only nodded. You were totally dumb-founded from his sweet manners.

The moment was interrupted when Edward came into the kitchen, asking where you have been so long, but when he saw Benjamin’s ruined shirt, he understood. After a few minutes, you three joined the party again. Benjamin was wearing one of Edward’s shirts he offered him. And you must say:  it suited him very well. He looked even more attractive than he already was. The whole evening you spend time with Benjamin, talking and getting to know each other. You felt very comfortable around him and enjoyed the way he was treating you. As the party was over and everyone started to leave you felt kind of sad, because you knew Benjamin would leave too.  You accompanied him to the door where he gently kissed your cheek. “Until next time.” He whispered in your ear before he left.

You met a few weeks after. Since then you found a very beautiful relationship.

You thoughts were interrupted by a hand on your shoulder. You turned around, only to look into your boyfriends eyes. Your heart skipped a beat, like always when you saw him. He made you so happy and all you wanted was to spend your whole life with him. “Hello, my love.” He greeted as he sat down next to you. “Hey, handsome.” You returned. “What are you doing here on your own?” Benjamin inquired. You shrugged your shoulders. “Nothing. Just thinking.” He nodded understandingly. Suddenly, you became really nervous and your hands were sweaty.

You didn’t know how to tell him your plan. What if he refused? He noticed the strain of your body, glancing at you questioningly. “What’s the matter, Love?” He asked but you stood silent. “You know you can tell me everything.” You stared at his face, saving all his features in your mind. Oh god, how much you loved this man! And you were sure that you wanted to spend your life by his side. “I do.” You responded and placed your lips on his soft once. You kissed each other gently. You laid your hands on his shoulders, he put your head between his hands and deepened the kiss. When you pulled away for air, he put loving kisses on your neck. He loved to tease you. When he kissed your weak spot, a little moan escaped your lips. “God, Benjamin.” You hold tighter onto him, your nails digging into his delicate flesh as he began to lick and suck your weak spot. “Bite me.” You whispered. Suddenly, he pulled away from you like something had burned him. “What?” He panted. His face lost all color and he looked very pale.

You bit your lower lip, uncertain if you should tell him after his reaction. Nevertheless, you tried. “I want you to bite me.” You repeated. Benjamin took a deep breath while looking at you bewildered. He knew this conversation would come one day and hoped it would never happen. He ran his hands through his face. He didn’t want to do this. It was not that he did not love you, he loved you so dearly, but the transformation was such a painful progress and he did not want to see you in pain. Especially when he caused it.  

“I’m sorry, (Y/N). I’m afraid I can’t do this.”  You looked to the ground, trying to hold your tears back. “Why?” Your voice was hoarse and you hardly pushed yourself back from crying. “Don’t you love me?”  He turned to you, lifting up your chin so he could look into your eyes. “Of course I love you, (Y/N). How can you even think otherwise? I love you more than I love myself. You’re my life.”

“Why don’t you want to change me then?” You asked quietly. “It’s the pain I want to save you from.” Benjamin explained. “Believe me, I went through so much pain. The transformation isn’t as easy as you think. It hurts a lot. It feels like someone would stab your whole body.”

Your fingers slid softly along your boyfriend’s cheek. “I don’t care how much pain it’s going to cause me. I know it’ll be worth it. You’re worth everything.” You offered him a loving smile. “But-“  He wanted to speak but you interrupted him. “No buts! I love you and I trust you!”

“And what about Bella?” He asked quite insecure. “She will understand.” You assured him. He didn’t look very impressed. “Please, Ben. I love you so much. I need you by my side. Forever.”

He sighed and then nodded. “Okay.” You grinned at him widely and threw your arms around his neck. “Let’s hope that Bella isn’t going to kill us.” He said jokingly. You laughed but it got stuck in your throat when you felt his sharp teeth sink into your neck, draining blood from your body. You felt the venom running like sharp needles through your veins. Your whole body was burning. You had the urge to scream but muffled it by biting on your fist. It was your decision after all. Benjamin had warned you. You whined and dug your nails into his neck while he was patting you hair and trying to soothe you. “It’s alright. It’s alright, Love. It will be over.” The pain was unbearable.

You slowly became unable to breathe and your heart was getting to a halt. You felt yourself losing your consciousness and your weak body collapsed in your lover’s arms.  “Forever.” You heard Benjamin whisper before everything went black.
