How long do you hold a grudge? Is there a limit to the length of time to ignore someone who almost ruined your life?
I am undecided on this issue and need your input.
Five years ago Tarquin and I were very close with this werewolf couple. They weren't part of our pack, but wandered through and ended up staying for a couple years, a part of our family really. They accepted me so well, I encouraged the relationship and ignored anything odd that went on around them. When they began to act secretive I laughed it off as my imagination and Tarquin's being paranoid.
It wasn't until I came across them and a few of our most standoffish weres. They didn't like me, hated vamps and were fairly open about this to the pack. They often made me feel as if they were out to get me, I wondered if they would one day turn on Tarquin too. Which is why it was doubly disturbing when I heard what was being said between them and the couple I thought were our friends. The couple was trying to convince them to overthrow us! It was insane! I, of course, killed them....I mean really you don't expect I would have let them get away with such betrayal? The others, the ones from our pack who were listening, I didn't kill, but I did warn them to leave and never come back.
They stayed gone for five years...and showed up last night asking to be accepted back into our pack. I locked them in the basement while Tarquin and I discuss what we should do.
So what do you think? Forgive, kill, turn loose again?
