….In the south the vampire population were more dense than the entire world's population combined, and that had its problems.
….Vampires were known as lone hunters, creatures that seldom crossed each others paths, but because of an century long battle between witches and vampires, the vampire population was thriving as the human population started thriving in the Mississippi area.
….Vampires were commonly known to witches as the Pest and witches sought to save many human men and women from the unwanted bit of a vampire - if they though them worthy that is - but witches themselves were not immune to the Pest's bit and that lead to the coming demise of a century long battle between good and evil, the line between good and evil was easily erased, but goodness has a way of shining through the darkness and even the vessel of goodness could have a dark side. This is the story of which I am a part of.
….I am Caroline Appleton, I was born and raised in New York City, in the kind of wealthy part of the city. Each summer we traveled to Black Creek, Mississippi, where my father had business to attend to, I was dragged along because my parents didn't trust me to anyone else, not even my uncle who lived in New York.
….Like most young women who were out in society, I was to be married to an well-respected man; the eldest son of my father's business associate, whom I not saw suitable for me, though it was written in my cards, but all of that changed in the summer of '64 - 1864, that is.
….So this is where my journey begins as something else, naturally, has to end. I knew I should never have gone to Black Creek, Mississippi, in the first place, but my decision would prove to have fatal consequences.
