    The Meeting

    “And you are Marie Laveau?” Bette smiled, reaching her hand out to shake the woman’s.

    “I am-please, have a seat. You want anything to drink?” Marie asked, watching Bette get comfortable in the chair.

    “Just a water, thanks,” Bette smiled, taking out a few files from her briefcase.

    “So,” Marie said, turning around from her desk and handing Bette a water from the mini fridge. “What did I do to deserve a visit from one of the top art gallery owners in Los Angeles?”

    Bette smiled, “as you are aware- my business partner and I decided to do an exhibit on the supernatural for the Halloween season. We saw some of your pieces from a fellow associate of ours who happened to be in town for Jazz Fest a few months ago.”

    “Oh-really?” Marie asked, cocking her brow.

    “I think your work is magnificent,” Bette smiled. “My business partner and I would be honored to host some of your work at the gallery.”

    “Will there be compensation?” Marie asked, winking.

    Bette smiled, “absolutely. Most of the funds will go to you, that is if you decide to accept the offer.”

    Marie leaned back in her chair, “when will this be taking place?”

    “2 months from now,” Bette answered confidently. “We would need about 10 pieces of your work then we have to adjust lighting and additional material.”

    Marie leaned forward this time, “you know I don’t usually accept such offers. But…”

    “But?” Bette smiled.

    “I think I will take you up on it,” Marie nodded. “Now-hand over the forms and we can discuss which paintings would work the best.”

    Bette gave the woman a wide smile as she reached for the file on top.

    New Orleans- Garden District

    Opening the front door of the manor, Tina threw her purse on the large chest. Heels clicking, she walked towards the voices coming from the kitchen.

    “Sad isn’t it?” Tina asked, walking in and briefly glancing at the tv playing. “7 young college men-dead in a terrible accident.”

    “Accident…sure,” Gabby rolled her eyes as she took a bite of her sandwich.

    “But then again,” Tina interrupted, taking out a cigarette from the pack on the counter. “No one is going to miss a bunch of assholes in Abercrombie tee shirts.”

    1. 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.
