East

The east side of the city is the very heart of Sacrosanct - it's unique skyline is a clash between modern sky rises and small Victorian-inspired storefronts. In the heart of downtown, the sleek colored glass buildings reign supreme though their old-world roots can be seen in the most peculiar places from the lamp post styled electric street light to the stone sidewalks. The old world architecture slowly returns the further from downtown you travel, however. It's here that magic thrives, it hums in every stone and can be felt in every breath. Often, newcomers to the city may become overwhelmed by such sensations but, eventually, it becomes an ever-present feeling that's hardly noticed.

The thundering sound of the sirens only expanded the presence of the fluttering winged anxiety within the demure vampire's chest. She yearned for an escape from the prowling presence of the hunters that would surely descend upon them in mere moments. Her coaxing seemed to fall flat - at least at first and yet, soon enough, Chizue found herself leading the hulking bear through the dampness of the fog that permeated the downtown square. Their pace was all bug sluggish and yet, the fact that they were moving was enough to satisfy her. The vampire slowly led him through downtown and back towards the row houses that she had originally come from, her petite figure slowly relaxed the closer and closer she got to her own little sanctuary. Her chocolate eyes kept glancing over her shoulder to ensure he still trailed in her footsteps. Chizue had to admit that she found a peculiar sort of comfort in having the enormous artic beast behind her - as if nothing was capable of harming her beneath the man's nutmeg irises. Admittedly, it made that sharp sound that reverberated within the air all the harsher to her ears. Chizue flinched, her chocolate eyes quickly scanned the dense fog that surrounded her as she reached out to the large bear. "Shh, shh, it's okay, it's okay." She murmured, attempting to reassure him.

That roar caused a frown upon the fair woman's features and yet, it seemed her words of comfort had some effect upon him. At the very least, the bear didn't leave her. That had to count for something, particularly considering all those souls who had of late. That gruff upon his lips caused her chocolate gaze to drift back towards the man and though she was oblivious to the words he attempted to convey to her, that aura that danced so vibrantly around him expressed that message all the same. The anger within him, the irritation and possession all but swirled for her vision like an intense cacophony of color. A delicate hand reached out towards the bear, the girl hardly afraid of those sharply pointed canines as her fingers gingerly ruffled the fur upon his head, only to once again pick up her path towards that familiar home she so yearned to retreat to. That walk seemed to stretch on for miles, even if it was hardly as long. In the depths of the darkness and the intense stark white of her own ignorantly created fog, measuring distance had become all but impossible. She hardly gave it even a second's worth of thought, however, the girl merely grateful for its presence as it cloaked them in such a cool, loving embrace. Those steps hardly went on forever, as the young woman so suddenly stopped in her path, her gaze staring upwards at the facade of a pale blue townhome.

Her soft declaration to wait was met with a narrowed gaze and yet, it didn't change her demand all the same. Quite on the contrary, her feet merely moved faster as she moved up the stairs onto the porch, ducking inside the dark home but seconds later. Chizue moved as swiftly as she could, making her way into the backyard. She'd only just heard that tail end of a conversation as she stepped out of the sliding glass door, the haunting sound of those voices worried her - forcing the girl to all but run against the grass towards the fence. Swiftly she undid the latch, pulling open the gate as she beckoned to him. Her worry so clearly resonated within her sweet voice and, thankfully, the bear was quick to move closer towards her. His size, however, hadn't quite been anticipated as the beast so reluctantly attempted to slide past her. Her own petite frame near had to flatten against the sliding the house and yet, finally, his large, furry figure was through that gate. A soft breath of relief left her lips as she quickly closed the wooden fence behind him, the latch once again falling close. All she had to do now was get him behind the house before the hunters neared them through that thick, thick fog. A small, almost weak simper crossed her features as the man eyed her, his tail wiggling with almost curious contentment.

Gently she reached out to touch his neck as the girl moved past him, gesturing the large bear towards the back of the house and further into the backyard. Chizue was hardly prepared for the way his large frame suddenly seemed to fluff, an almost grumpy sound leaving his lips. Her chocolate eyes shot back towards the road, her own superior hearing so quickly caught the sound of voices. The male Hunter's mere existence so put her back on edge as Chizue brought a single finger to her lips, attempting to prompt silence within the large bear as she guided him as quietly as she could through her backyard and away from the fence. Maybe....she could...get him inside the house somehow? If she opened both of the French doors he might be able to enter and yet, the weight of his large body upon the porch would surely give them away. Maybe they should just....wait...as much as she hated the sound of that.
