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.

i'm not ashamed of my scars, i'm ashamed of the world for not understanding.

Although Raven loved her family she did enjoy being alone with her mate for a month. During that time they could do whatever they pleased without any responsibilities tugging them away from one another. Going to Africa seemed like the perfect place for the new couple to hideaway. Each day was an adventure. Yet even though they were thousands of miles away she could still feel that invisible thread that connected her to their little misfit family. Every now and then she would faintly tug on that string ensuring it was still there. Not that she thought the strand would disappear, but to comfort her knowing they were there and okay. Even for her witch she would stroke that thread, keeping an eye on her even while she was away. Although her raven-haired friend had another guardian of sorts, and even though his species hunted down their kind, he could be trusted. However, out of all those she loved there was one in particular she was mostly concerned about, Tetradore.



The man was beyond aloof. Aloof wouldn't even be the correct word to describe him. The man just went through life as if it were nothing. Not that he didn't care about life or the people in it. He did. If he didn't care he wouldn't be their Alpha in the first place. Taking Tobias away from him was almost like taking away his other half. When her wedding day was fast approaching she promised Tetradore she wouldn't stand in the way of his extremely close relationship with Tobias. If they wanted to do anything together he didn't have to ask her permission, they could just go. She expected a touching reaction from him, maybe even a little bit of appreciation. What Raven received was completely opposite. He seemed indifferent and casually said that she was the most important relationship in Tobias' life now. Raven doubted she could ever replace her spotted companions best friend, the two of them as thick as thieves.



It didn't go unnoticed when he would disappear for awhile. It wasn't every night he was gone, but there were times when he didn't watch over or participate in the fights. Before she noticed a change in him he wasn't at the Ark all the time when it was open, but he didn't seem so ragged before. There were times when he was exhausted from being out late doing God knows what. Other times he was sore from whatever physical activity he endured, telling the concerned woman it was nothing to fret over. Well, his words didn't soothe her at all. While they were away she hoped that Tetradore would be okay and upon their return he would seem better. After being back for a few weeks Raven didn't notice a positive change. It had been long enough and the lupine was determined to get to the bottom of this.



As always in the beginning of the year it was tax season. This was perhaps one of the times when the two of them were at constant close proximity to one another. After years of doing the tax work together they have developed a pretty good sufficient system. They knew what their roles were and they performed them perfectly, well they would if they weren't interrupted by the man they both cared for. That wily scoundrel determined to pull the two of them away from paper. With the new tax laws being absolutely backwards from the previous years the two of them were finalizing a few things today. The deadline for early submissions was today and with Tobias out and about, doing God knows what, that left her alone with Tetradore for awhile. Raven wanted to spend more time with him doing things, fun things to be more specific, because taxes are not fun things. Besides maybe if she spent more time with him he might open up. Probably that was an unlikely thing, but she could try.



Grabbing the final few papers she made her way over to his bedroom. The man had promised her earlier in the morning he would have his final reviews done. Although she could deliver these packets to the post office by herself she hoped he would accompany her on the trip. Opening his bedroom door she walked in seeing the man reviewing a few papers. With a grin she spoke softly towards him, her tone containing a wary, but chipper note.



"You nearly done? I was thinking maybe we could go to the post office together and grab some coffee and sweets nearby? You know, a chance for us to celebrate and...hang out."



It seemed a bit silly that she was a grown woman asking to 'hang out' with someone, but she would like to spend some time with him. After all he mentioned to her a long time ago he would be her brother, and well, she never had an older brother before.
