In the forest glade, the ram and the hart face off, cautiously circling one another. Marie sits perched in the branch of a large pine watching, anxiously. She’d met Lancelot when he was a knight of the famed Round Table. Arthur had ruled Camelot, but Richard had ruled England and Maid Marion, as she had been known then, was a member of Richard’s court.
It was at a ball Richard held as a means of building good will among adjoining kingdoms that Marion had met Lancelot. They had ended up as partners in a round dance and each had recognized the difference in the other. She could see right away as she looked into his eyes that he was a member of the undead. And she had no doubt that he could see that she was not like the other girls present. Although, he may not have known that she was a witch, she was certain he recognized her as being of the same fellowship. After the dance, Marion had rushed to tell Salome. She had made the mistake of telling Salome that she thought Lancelot was “the one”. Salome was a vampire like Lancelot. For some reason, witches and vampire seemed to find themselves together a lot in Richard’s court.
Unfortunately, Salome had already seen Lancelot and was keenly aware of him. When she learned that Marion was interested in him, she began to look for a way to sabotage things between Marion and Lancelot. And she didn’t have to look far. Lancelot’s brother, Regent, had come to the ball as Lancelot’s guest. Regent had also seen Marion. He, too, had recognized her unique differences that made her stand out from the crowd. He, too, was interested.
