Once upon a time...
Hell no, scratch that!
No scratch that too!
New Orleans, 1898
All looked well on the outside, but everything was far from it.The trust had been betrayed and the truce had been broken. Eventhough it had been by accident, neither saw fit to believe it so.
A war had begun between the Hunters and the Hunted. It was a fierce battle!
The hunters odds went up having a witch on their side... Prolonging their life... Leveling the battle-field, since the Hunted weren't killed that easily.
The Hunted saw this newly found power as a challenge and gave it their all!
The war raged for 30 straight days or until no one was left, but the leaders of each team.
Appearing impossible to kill each other, they compromised.
And yet another truce was made - None would kill the other unless they broke the rules they agreed upon.
1. The hunters would not attack the hunted without reason.
2. The hunted would ask their victims for permission before feeding. The victims would not be killed afterwards, but have their memory altered.
3. Both of them would remain unknown to the world.
Little did they know that by allowing one another to live that very day, they set another fate in motion. One that could change both clans for better or worse...
Years have passed since then. Both clans have regrouped in the form of allies and in some cases even family-members. But eventhough they coexisted for this long the compromise has been and is, in this day and age, an even thinner line. Ready to snap at the slightest mistake...
Will the compromise survive? Or will this generation make it all come crashing down?
Let's find out in 'Tamed'
I've been considering renaming the story to 'Hunted' since it fits more with the history that led to this story. But I've already advertised the original name in 'The Spotlight' and other places, so I'll stick to that one. The reason why I used that name will still come across in the story, but not strongly...
I hope you enjoy!
