Winners will be announced Feb 15TH, Feb 22nd, & March 1st
I was a descendant of the damned, destined for unfortunate things.
It was just that simple, and for a long time, I accepted it.
But when my leader gave me a thirteen year old girl named Jackie and forced me into guardianship, things seemed to lose their simplicity.
I was a hunter and a killer. Not a babysitter, and I had lost too much in my life to risk getting attached to her.
And yet, the more time we spent together, the more I began wanting things that I couldn't have.
Things like a family. Things like a better life for the two of us.
I should've known the gods would never allow me happiness.
