Hello, WeWriWa followers! How are you doing this week?
I’m giving another snippet from Camp One this week. In this scene, Dolce, Courtland, and Mieran are meeting the three most powerful prisoners in the camp they are now a part of.
“We’ll take it from here,” the redhead said to the guards behind them. The strength in his voice and his bearing were obvious but it was still surprising when the guards backed off and left them alone. Turning his deep blue eyes on them, he gave them a sad smile. “Welcome to hell. My name is Iain. To my left is Devon.” Devon was even larger than Iain was. While the same height, his shoulders were wide, his muscles numerous and when you added in his shoulder length shaggy black hair, deep gray eyes and constant hand twitching, Dolce was sure he was someone to keep an eye on.
The Changelings: Camp One
Picture the United States, circa 20-teens.
Only it’s not the United States we know. Or is it?
Every year, teenagers from the ages of 14-16 get tested for a classified, illegal hormone nobody knows anything about, except for the military. Tested as positive for XJ-99Q, Dolce, Courtland, and their friend Mieran are removed from society and thrown into a camp in the middle of the desert. With electrified fencing and face-to-face duels to the death, they don’t imagine it could be worse. Until they find out what the hormone actually does; turns them into something else entirely. Faced with annihilation, Dolce and Courtland join up with the three strongest males in camp. While Mieran joins with their enemy.
When the camp is destroyed, five of them escape, tasting freedom. But when they relax their guard, the military finds them. Captured, escaped, and captured again, no matter which way they move, the military is two steps ahead of them.
Against all odds, they find a family of humans they trust and wish to stay with. Only, this time, they may have not just doomed themselves, but every human in their vicinity to the fate of Camp One.
