When She Screams :The Banshees are coming. Are you ready?
“Her father, now greedy from all the gifts, refused to let Cahira see Kennrik. For months, the couple met in secret. They planned and schemed until the day they were set to run away together finally arrived. Cahira snuck from her father’s house in the dead of night to meet her love at the cottage he built for them.
However, what she found there was the exact opposite of the happy ending she’d expected. Not only was Kennrik there, but he had brought his brothers as well. Her hopes and dreams fell to ruin as all the men had their way with her, brutally beating her and taking her innocence and purity.
As she lay dying in the room that was to be hers forever, the last words she heard were from Kennrik, whispering to her that she had been so naive to think he could love her for more than just her beauty and that there was no way anyone would have married her.
Those words sparked many things, but the main thing was Cahira’s need for vengeance. That night, the Banshees were born.
No one knows how, but Cahira from Ireland rose from the dead with a wicked scream, wreaking revenge on the men who brutalized her. With blood dripping from her hands, she stared into the night sky and swore that no man would ever prey upon a woman again.
She sticks her chin in the air. “I want to go to the meeting.”
“When you’re older,” I tell her, moving to the side and expecting her to let me through.
Her chin raises higher. The fierce look in her eyes increases, which makes me smile when it shouldn’t. Marion’s going to have a difficult time with this one. Then again, I remember them saying the same thing about me, and I turned out okay. Better than okay. “You promise?” Chutney asks.
“Of course,” I tell her, growing impatient. “You know the rules.”
“I wish I was already out there like you.”
She looks toward the front door dreamily. I pat her head, then physically move her out of the way. “Don’t wish your training away, Chut. It’s important.”
