Once a year, for a select few families, a tradition takes place. The families gather on the night of the blood moon. They transform into the animal they have bonded with and run after a human that is selected. Once caught the human is sacrificed. The one who catches them is given wealth and power to their family. A council controls over all the families and they were the ones who provided the human for the hunt. Something that has been done for hundreds of years without any issues.
Casanova’s family is one of the ancient families that participate in the hunt. Her own father the head of the council. She grew up looking forward to the hunt until one year she had met the human and became friends. After being forced to participate by her father, she was the one who caught her friend and killed him. She rather be the one to kill her friend than anyone else. After she watched the life drain out of him she ran off into the woods. Leaving her life and family behind.
Ten years later Casanova had managed to stay hidden from her kind. Working at a bar in a small town. One night after closing the bar she comes across a young girl being harassed by a group of drunken men. Casanova intervenes and scares off the men, taking the girl back to her place where she knows she can keep her safe.
And so our story continues…

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "Nova you have no choice. You need to be the one to finish the ritual"] came the sound of her so called father's voice. The woman looked up at the man she adored her whole life and shook her head. [#cc6699 "Daddy please.. I can't do that to him.."] she begged. Her father shook his head reaching out and touching his daughter's cheek lightly. [b "I wish it was that easy princess but it's not"] he said. Nova knew her father was right. Her eyes filled with tears then.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "Honestly I would be the one to do it if I were you. The other's are on his tail, and they will tear him limb from limb. Do you really want that to happen?"] he asked her. A her father spoke about that, her head snapped up. He was right. The other's in her pack were closing in on him. She could feel the change starting to happen, as the anger started to take over. The feeling of the change made her scream out in pain. She shifted into her black and white wolf form, and then she was running out the door and into the woods.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She had to hurry and get to the male before the other's did. As she was running she caught the man's scent and her heart hammered inside of her chest. She broke out into a run and in mid run she shifted back. Her breathing heavy from the run, and then change. Elijah looked shocked at seeing the woman. [b "Casanova? What's going on?"] he asked her. She threw herself into his arms burying her face into his neck. She didn't know what to say at first. What was she supposed to say? This was her best friend after all.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#cc6699 "I am so sorry... Please forgive me..."] Her voice was a trembling whisper in his ear. Before he could answer her, the female wrapped her arms around his head and snapped his neck. The male went limp. The sounds of howling echoed through the air. The ritual was done. Her body felt like a train had hit her. Her heart was broken. Her eyes looked up through tears at the blood moon. [#cc6699 "You are with mother now. May she embrace you with her love."] Her little prayer made her feel slightly better but only barely.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She could hear and smell the others closing in on her. She refused to stay for the feast. She had to run. Run hard and fast. Otherwise her father would also force her to participate in that. A flash of lightning lit up the sky and when the boom of thunder followed, she was off. Running as fast and as long as her legs would take her...]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Ten years had gone by and she could still see his face as clear as day. Nova refused to forget. She ran away from everything she had known and had started fresh. She had been lucky enough to find Dante's Inferno. A bar in Sleepy Hallow, New York. She had been seventeen at the time. They hired her on as a waitress and as time went on she went up the ranks until the owner made her bar manager. She was twenty-seven now and kept to herself for the most part. She hadn’t let anyone get close to her like Elijah had. She refused to cry over another person.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She made her way to the bathroom and she shut the door behind her. She started the shower and let the water heat up. Pretty soon the bathroom was filled with steam, and she stepped into the shower. She was pulling a double shift tonight. She needed the money, and she needed the distraction anyway. It's the day she had killed her best friend in the whole world, and she wanted to tear herself up over it, but knew she couldn't do that. Not now anyway. When she was alone for good she would.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She hurried in the shower and when she was done, she shut the water off and grabbed the light pink towel and wrapped it around her body. She stepped out of the shower and walked over to the sink. She grabbed her tooth brush and got it wet. She put some tooth paste onto the bristles and started brushing her teeth. Her eyes moved to the door when she heard a scratch and whine from the other side. Kira was finally awake. She walked over to the door and opened it. She looked down at the black and white husky and smiled a bit.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She reached down and rubbed the dogs ears. She went and finished brushing her teeth, before looking back at the dog. [#cc6699 "I know, I'm coming. Give me a moment"] she cooed. The dog wagged her tail and trotted off, and out of the bedroom. She shook her head lightly as she made her way into the bedroom. She found her uniform and placed it on the bed. She dried herself off and then got dressed. The black skinny jeans hugging her in all the right places. She then pulled on her white button down shirt.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She finished getting ready for work, and then went to feed the dog. She made sure the doggy door was open so Kira could go in and out as she pleased. [#cc6699 "I'll be home late tonight baby. I love you"] she told the dog. Kira looked up at her and wagged her tail. She smiled a bit as she gathered up her things and made her way out the door. She unlocked the Mercedes Benz and slid in behind the wheel. Her mind was still on Elijah the whole time. She felt tears sting her eyes, and she shook her head.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She started the car, pulled out of the driveway and headed into town. She lived in the richest part of New York, and she didn't mind it. It kept her mind busy, and the people were amazing after all. When Dante's was in view she pulled into the back and parked the car. She sat there a moment longer before shutting the car off, grabbed her apron and phone and climbed out. She locked the doors behind her, and headed into the building. [b "Casanova! What are you doing here? You aren't supposed to be here till tonight"]]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#cc6699 "Oh I know. I'm pulling a double. I need the distraction"] she admitted. Rose didn't bother saying more. She clocked in, and went straight to work. She had a feeling it was going to be a really long day. She sighed lightly as she placed herself behind the counter, tied the apron around her waist and lost herself in her work for the time being.]]
[size12 The day had started out like any other for the twenty-three year old woman. She had yet another client yell at her for something that wasn’t her fault. In fact, the misunderstanding was because her boss had told the client that they would be able to leave their car in a restricted parking spot and after a few hours it had been towed. She was only a secretary after all. Slowly, she shook her head as she sat in her car, thanking whatever higher power that the day had finally come to an end. She looked at the clock on the dashboard and groaned. She had done it again.
[b “Of course you would be sitting in the parking lot for an hour after your shift ended. Just perfect.”] Amaliah muttered and shook her head, reaching over to start the engine of her car. She was greeted with blasting of heavy metal from the radio, gritting her teeth. She should have known better than to let her brother borrow her car while she was at work. She decided that she would be dealing with him later. Once the car warmed up, the woman drove to her favorite bar in Sleepy Hallow, New York. She smiled as she parked her car in the lot of Dante’s Inferno, shutting off the engine before stepping out.
Amaliah really did need a drink after the day she had, showing the security her license before entering. She wondered if her favorite bartender was in tonight as blue-grey eyes scanned the area. A feeling of disappointment washed over her as she did not see the woman anywhere. [i ‘Maybe she’s not in yet? I mean you don’t really know her schedule and you haven’t really spoken to her aside from maybe a “hi” here or there.’] Amaliah thought as she slowly made her way to the counter, taking a seat.
She ordered her usual and thanked the server as it was placed before her, taking a sip. The burn in the back of her throat was just what she needed to distract herself from the day that she had. Closing her eyes, the scene flashed within her mind, and she bit on her lower lip. It really hadn’t been her fault that the car had been towed. But whatever. She couldn't do anything about it even if she wanted to. The woman shook her head once more, trying to forget about the day's events.
After a few hours of silently drinking a couple of rounds, a sketchy looking man had taken a seat beside her. Amaliah hadn’t noticed until he spoke to her. “How would you like to get out of here and chill with me and the boys?” He asked, motioning to the group of men that had joined them. She looked up and saw that there were about six of them in total and they all looked just as sketchy, if not more so than the one who had taken the seat beside her. Giving the politest smile she could muster, Amaliah answered, [b “Sorry, I’m not interested. In fact, if you must know, I’m not interested in men and I would like it if you and your buddies would just leave me alone.”]
The man just looked at her and laughed. He clearly thought that she was joking and obviously couldn’t take “no” for an answer. Soon, he said, “You’re too pretty to swing that way. How about you try a real man? I’m sure I can bring you back to the right team. You just haven’t had the right guy.” He looked back to the others, and they laughed as well. To be honest, she thought that they all sounded rather stupid.
Disgusted and with a roll of her eyes, the woman stood and made her way to the exit. She could tell that the men were following her and she tried to lose them by walking into an alleyway to hide. It was to no avail as they cornered her against the wall, making sexual remarks about her appearance. There were too many of them to take on by herself and she stood against the wall, bracing herself for the worst as the group of men began to approach her. Amaliah closed her eyes and pressed as close as she could against the wall. She wasn’t sure what was going to happen now, but something in her gut told her that it was definitely not going to be good. This was not at all how she wanted to spend her night, being surrounded by a group of men who lusted after her.
The woman hoped that someone from the staff of the bar had seen and that they would help her get out of this situation that she had somehow gotten herself into. She knew that she was probably asking too much, but she hoped that it would be her favorite bartender who had seen and would help. What was her name? Nova? [i ‘You’re asking too much Amaliah. It’s not like anyone had seen what had transpired within the bar..’] She thought and chewed on her lower lip. With how things were starting to look, she knew that they weren’t good. She prayed to whatever higher power there was to be rescued from this situation.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 A small sigh passed through the woman's lips as she took order, after order, after order, and had many people hitting on her. Men and women alike. She didn't mind it though. She liked the attention, but there was one person she wanted looking at her right then and there, and it happened to be one of her regular clients. She had been watching the door like a hawk for the woman to enter the bar. When it was finally time for her break, and the woman hadn't entered the bar, her heart sank a bit.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 In all honesty, she was getting her hopes up. She wanted to see the woman, she wanted to see those beautiful eyes, and she wanted to talk to her. She sighed lightly as she untied the apron from around her waist. [#cc6699 "I'm going to take my first break"] she said to Rose. Rose looked up and nodded. [b "Take a longer one please. You are here all night, and I don't want you over doing it. So I am giving you permission to take longer breaks, and lunch tonight"] she said in a matter of fact voice.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Casanova didn't have much of a choice in the matter. [#cc6699 "Yes Ma'am. I'll be back in a half hour then"] she said as she placed her apron onto the counter top, and slipped out from behind the bar. As she was walking away, she heard the door open and something told her to turn around. When she did, she spotted the woman walking in, and took a seat. She wanted to go and serve her, but Rose would kill her. She had to fight the urge to go back over there, and take the beautiful creature's order.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#cc6699 [i 'You don't want to piss Rose off. Do as you are told for a change']] she told herself. She ducked her head and moved over to one of the empty tables in the back. She made sure to have the woman in sight. As she sat there trying to enjoy her break, she noticed a group of men going up to her, and it made her blood boil. She didn't like how they were standing around her. She couldn't hear what they were saying, but the look on their faces said it all.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She didn't like the body language of them either. That's when the woman stood and pretty much shoved her way out, and the men followed right behind. That's not a good sign. She hurried to her feet, and nearly ran to the back door. She threw the door open, and she could hear the men's voices, and her heart nearly pounded out of her chest. She stopped in the shadows, and slowly peered around the corner. She spotted the woman against the wall, and the men were moving in closer to her, cornering her. That was setting Nova off even more.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "I promise you, this isn't going to hurt as long as you don't struggle. I will make sure you enjoy yourself, and make you realize that you aren't into women at all"] he said. As soon as those words left the man's voice, Nova sprang into action. [#cc6699 "Hey! Leave her alone!"] she called out. The men turned around and looked at the woman before them. They all shook their heads and laughed. [b "What are [i you] going to do about it Princess?"] asked the head male. That nickname rubbed her the wrong way.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#cc6699 "You are in my territory, you aren't allowed back here for the most part. You are cornering a woman, and I'm pretty sure she's told you no. So if I were you, I would back the fuck off, and leave now"] she said clenching her fists together. The men all laughed and started after her. They were testing the waters, and they were about to lose everything. As soon as the first man reached out to grab her, she grabbed his wrist, bent it back, and felt the bones snap. That's when the screams filled the air.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The other's ducked their heads and ran off like children. The head man in charged paled a bit. [b "Fine, you can have the bitch"] he said with worry in his voice. He then ducked his own head and ran out of the alleyway. Casanova let the other man's wrist go, and watched as he scurried off after the others. Her eyes then turned to the woman. [#cc6699 "Are you okay? Did they touch you?"] she asked, her voice laced with worry. Her eyes scanned the woman up and down, not seeing any scratches or bruises on the other.]]
[size12 Upon seeing the woman, Amaliah’s heart began to race. It almost seemed as if it would just burst right from her chest. All she could do was stare as Nova had taken the leader of the group’s hand and had broken some bones. She couldn’t believe that just one quick movement was able to do so much damage.
When the men left and it was just the two of them in the alleyway, Amaliah slid down the wall, her body shivering slightly from the experience. She looked up and then said, voice almost a whisper, [b “I’m okay.. they didn’t get the chance to touch me.. thank you for saving me from what could have been a horrible fate.”] Her words were in earnest and she meant what she said as she looked to the woman before her. [i ‘This woman is absolutely amazing and beautiful.. she saved me from what could have been something very terrible.’] Amaliah thought as she did not take her eyes off the other. A slight blush had formed over her cheeks when she noticed that the other was looking over her. She knew that the woman was checking to see if she had been hurt in any way, but just knowing that the other was [i looking] at her made her blush. She couldn’t help it.
After for what seemed like forever, Amaliah realized that she was staring and averted her eyes to the floor. She didn’t want to seem weird as she was just staring at the other women without so much as saying anything else. She then looked up once more and stood, moving closer. [b “How did you do that to his hand? It almost seemed effortless..”] she breathed out, voice soft in awe. She knew that she probably shouldn’t have asked, but the mere curiosity had gotten the better of her. [b “Uhhh.. you don’t have to answer that.. it was just me thinking out loud.”] Amaliah said, realizing what she said could have been taken very wrong if not explained very well. It could almost sound like she was mocking the other and God knew that was not what she had been intending to be doing. She was only amazed at how effortless the woman made things seem and that if provoked she was not one to be messed with.
Looking around and then back to Nova, Amaliah gave a small smile, [b “I guess that this is a good time to introduce myself? I’m Amaliah.”] She said, voice gaining some volume after the shock from the encounter had begun to fade. It was fading faster in this woman’s presence as she felt safe with her. Biting on her lower lip and at a loss for words, Amaliah tried to speak once more.
[b “What should we do now that the men have gone? Should we go back into the bar? Or should I go home for the night and try to forget that this incident happened?”] She asked, head tilting to the side. To be honest, the woman wanted to stay near the other. She felt safe and she didn’t want that feeling to go away. She also didn’t want to intrude on anything that the woman had to do, whether it was work or something else. As these feelings had crept into her, Amaliah let out a soft sigh, still chewing on her lower lip. She was curious as to what the other would do and how she would answer anything she said, if she chose to answer at all.
The woman of twenty-three hoped that she wasn’t being a burden to the other with how she was talking and asking certain questions. She just felt drawn and wanted to know whatever she could about the beautiful woman who had saved her from the men who had nearly done terrible things to her. [i ‘Maybe she doesn’t want to talk and it was just chance that she saved you from those men’] came the mental scolding. Amaliah shook her head to try and rid those thoughts from her mind. For some unknown reason, she was feeling a bit self-conscious around this woman. Maybe it was because she did not want to seem like a fool. Amaliah didn’t know the reason for it, but she did not want the other to not like her and think that she was some kind of nuisance.
[i ‘For the love of God, knock it off. You don’t know how she will react and there is no use in overreacting and thinking of the worst. Just calm down and see how things play out’] she found herself thinking and mentally scolded herself once again. As those thoughts crossed her mind, another sigh escaped her lips. Amaliah really did need to calm down and let things happen as they were going to.
