    The Meeting

    Chapter 1:

    New Orleans – French Quarter- Present

    Heels clicked on the hard pavement of the sidewalk as the determined art gallery owner opened the doors to Marie’s Studio. Looking around, she admired the walls; decorated with numerous acrylic and oil paintings-just as she has seen in the pictures.

    “You must be Bette Porter?” a young African American woman said, coming from behind a beaded curtain.

    “Yes,” Bette answered, giving the young woman a wide smile. Reaching her hand out, she gently shook the woman’s hand.

    “I’m Marie’s assistant, Jewel,” the younger woman said, shaking Bette’s hand. “She is currently with someone now, but it shouldn’t be long.”

    “Thank you,” Bette nodded as she looked around the room.

    “So…where are you from?” Jewel asked, looking the woman up and down.

    “L.A.” Bette smiled. “Just got in this morning.”

    “You came all the way out here to meet with Marie?” Jewel asked, cocking her brow. “I know her paintings are good, but…”

    “Well,” Bette smiled, “I have a few meetings lined up for me the next 2 weeks. Hopefully, I can convince some of these local artists to have their work shown in my studio. I’m doing an exhibit on-well, I guess you can say the supernatural.”

    Jewel smiled as she sat down at the front desk. “Well- I guess you came to the right place….”

    “Hopefully,” Bette smiled before walking towards a wall to examine a painting.

    Jewel looked up at the clock and sighed, “I will go see what is taking so long, Bette. I will be back soon.”

    “Okay,” Bette smiled towards Jewel as she watched the young woman disappear behind the curtain.

    Jewel knocked hesitantly on the door, slowly opening it up.

    “Uh-Marie?”

    Marie looked up from her desk that she was leaning over, “I’ll be done soon.”

    Jewel looked down at the blonde, who sat patiently in the chair.

    “Bette is here.”

    “I’ll be done soon,” Marie repeated, looking at the blonde- eyes narrowing.

    Jewel nodded as she closed the door, leaving the two women alone.

    “You are just going to keep causing problems, aren’t you?” Marie asked the woman who was casually sipping on a dirty martini.

    The blonde cocked her hazel eyes at the Voodoo woman, “you broke our deal, Marie. My girls and I are pissed.”

      ok. i just have to say, i am really digging this story, especially since it is reflecting characters residing in the Big Easy. I had to smile as i read this, as i live across the street from the french quarter.

      i could not help but feel this is a cross between American Horror Story and the Originals, both series seem to have also fallen in love with New Orleans and portrayed their stories and characters around the beliefs, customs and heritage of “the magic’s”. as i continued to read on through the chapters, i was wondering when madam LaLaurie would grace an episode, with my mind’s endless imagination getting the better of me and feeling tina’s “mansion” is actually the infamous LaLaurie house, my imagination began to wonder when madam LaLaurie would grace a chapter or two as this tale continued onward.
      Closing my eyes, i saw myself walking down Royal street taking in the sights and sounds that can be overbearing at times, but moments are found to respect the soulful sounds of the jazz piano bar echoing the ballads of days gone by. ah, but i digress…….

      so this “new” episode of an alternate reality…….me thinks bette is the new “angel” that can change tina. i do get the impression tina is tired of the centuries and history of conflict between her “family” and Marie’s “family”. Tina strikes me as more progressive and willing to bring her family into the future and the current century. whatever conflict happening appears to be happening between her mother and herself and any changes that may happen will be bette and tina becoming the power couple of the french quarter.

      my question burning in my mind is, “exactly how “old” is tina”? this story is so familiar and your telling of this tale is captivating. i have always appreciated your writing style and your telling of tales. excellent visualization and the story flows so easily, taking the reader through the streets of the french quarter past the crowds of people who are hell-bent on drinking in excess and not returning home until three days after they have arrived in the quarter just for that “one drink”.
      will the continuing chapters evolve into bette taming the dark side of tina and both bette and tina actually being the two who was foretold to be the ones who can salvage and tame the dark magic? can two opposite “families” who have been fighting each other for as long as anyone can recall, become as one and learn to coincide peaceably together in a city where anyone and everyone wants to hold and control the power of the city?

      thank you for sharing this excellent tale with us and I so look forward to reading more of this.
