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.

A lot of things could have been different if Raven knew. If she knew he had just returned to the Ark that morning after being gone all night and not getting any sleep, she wouldn't have reminded him about the paperwork. It could have been done later. Turning in their taxes early was just a luxury for them to have so they didn't have to worry about it anymore. They could have done it much later. If she knew that her Alpha was being abused and tormented all night long she would have ordered him to bed to rest. Knowing he would need to not just rest physically, but mentally as well. Although after his rest he would have to listen and answer all the questions she bombarded him with. If she had known the man was wanting a bite to eat she would have prepared him a warm and comforting breakfast. Things could have been different for Tetradore if he would have just spoken up. Although something so simple as speaking up was truly a difficult thing to do.


After giving the man some time to work on his own set of paperwork Raven assumed he was done with his work. Entering his room with a large and friendly smile she set her plan into motion. The purpose of this time was to allow the two to spend time with one another, as Alpha and pack member, or brother and sister. If she could achieve this then perhaps there might be a chance that the green-eyed man would open up and say something...even if it was small. The lupine was concerned about him and she wanted to do whatever she could to help him. No one was strong enough to carry the weight of the world. And as much as she believed that Tetradore was capable of handling and doing anything she knew he was no demi-God capable of such a Herculean task. Everyone needed help, even him. So, as a pack member could she not provide him some sort of assistance, and if that wasn't good enough then why not a Sister?


That answer he was done with his part of the work was answered with a slow nod. Heading over towards his desk she took those stack of papers he handed towards her. Setting his stack of paperwork over hers she placed them all down on his desk. Taking the large envelope that was underneath her arm she opened it and began to gently slide those paper in, and then sealing it shut. Her inquiry about the two of them spending time together on this errand seemed to have caught him off guard. Blue-grey eyes shifted towards him as she waited for his reply, worried that he wouldn't accept her offer. A beaming smile appeared when he grabbed that worn leather jacket off the back of his chair. Those golden-brown curls swayed side to side as she shook her head, grabbing that large envelope filled with those tax papers ready to be filed.


"No, I'm afraid I haven't heard of it. Is this Were another cat? Are you trying to keep the canines from taking over?"


That last question held a teasing note to it. With Regan disappearing again their small family was balanced, three felines and three canines. Tobias had mentioned to her that felines were the best animal, and that canines were second best, maybe. Raven doubted that Tetradore was hunting down prospective feline Weres to join their ranks. Though she was surprised that he was attempting to try and persuade a Were to join their pack. Perhaps it was an Alpha thing something she should understand, but doesn't. Following Tetradore down where he kept his cars she paused for a moment as the man pondered on which car to take. When one of the cars beeped and the lights flashed, indicating this would be the vehicle he'd take out on their excursion, she made her way towards the front seat. After placing her envelope into her lap, and clicked her seatbelt on, she turned her head towards Tetradore, as she shyly asked for a favor.


"Do you think we could have the windows down? When we go fast with the windows down, it feels like were running."


It was an innocent indulgence that the lupine would like to experience. Tetradore liked to drive fast, and she liked to feel going fast...it was something they had in common.
