There are many tales such as this, Romeo and Juliet being the most famous. Two families at war with each other while children of each family fall desperately in love with each other. This story is different from the well known story of star crossed lovers. In Romeo and Juliet they see each other across a room, meet and then fall in love but that is not what happened here, in this the gap is a lot larger than just across the room. In the richest part of the large city stood two large and proud houses, home to the family of whiteheart and Blackhorse. Their families had been at war for many reasons over the years, the original reason forgotten but they were more than happy to keep the fight going. The whiteheart family consisted of a grandfather, a father, a mother, a teen age daughter and a baby brother on the way. The grandfather was harsh and had a quick temper much like his son but he was more likely to listen to you. The mother was a soft spoken woman who was much the peace keeper in the house between the grandfather and father that had a tendency to argue with the teen daughter. Elena, the daughter, was a sweet day dreamer. The child had been born with big blue eyes and long hair so blond under the sunlight it looked like it was made of the sun’s ray. Elena hated that she couldn’t go out at night because ‘that is Darkhorse’s preferred time’, that she couldn’t ask about the family she had always been told to hate yet if she walked out of her room on to her balcony and looked across she could see the home clearly. It was a night same as any other, Elena had decided to go to her room rather than be down stairs with her family and headed straight for the balcony. The 19 year old sat on the lawn chair on the balcony brushing her hair while looking over at the rival families house wondering what it was like over there.
