Never fraternise with a human.
That was the number one rule we lived by. None of us really know why, only that a bond between our kind and the human race would result in unfathomable disaster. With permission from the High Council, small numbers of us are permitted to live as humans do, in everyday life, to consume their foods, to wear the garbs, to experience their pleasures, so long as none felt the need to bond with a human.
I was born into one of these families, living among humans while the rest of our kin controlled the forces of nature. I have been alive for some six-and-eighty years but to the humans, I looked no more than seventeen. Even for my age I feel like a seventeen year old human. My parents, thank the stars, are close to a century old each, giving them the appearance of human adults, a factor that allows us to stroll through town as a socially accepted family, not perceived as a group of riotous young teens as most other families of our kind are.
I love my life. I had watched so many years pass by, the beginnings of so many wars, the rising and falling of so many political giants and athletic titans. The times where peace was discriminated, where a difference in the colouring of skin was to be feared and treated medically if come into contact with. But with each year that passed by, my intrigue grew; I knew how they lived, but what made them tick? What made them so impulsive? Why do they choose action over thought?
And so I made the decision to go where none of my kind had before, to discover what made them break so easily, where emotions ran at it's peak, where I would unknowingly seal my fate of death.
