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 demure vampire's chocolate brown eyes widened in horror as she watched her home creak and crack under the very weight of the large polar bear. The snap of those floor beams caused a shriek of surprise from her lips as she tried to insist the bear held some measure of caution within that home that was hardly hers, to begin with. Her words fell upon deaf ears, however, as the bear's hulking form finally collapsed upon the floor of her living room, leaving nothing but chaotic destruction in his wake. For a moment, the young woman simply surveyed what was left of her home. The contents of her pantry were strewn across the floor, several chairs in her little dining nook were knocked over, along with the end table beside the sofa. The coffee table was splintered and destroyed, crumbs now littered the pristine floor on top of the broken floorboards that gave her an unwanted look down into the crawl space beneath her home and Chizue was all but certain she'd seen mice skittering out of the way. The very sight of it all so greatly overwhelmed her that she could hardly help the whimper upon her lips, that sniffle soon starting before her chocolate eyes glassed over with unspilled tears. It hardly took long, however, before they traced wet trails down her porcelain cheeks, her shoulders rising and falling with those soft sobs. She hadn't meant for this to happen! She'd just wanted to help. How would she ever explain all of this damage to Isolt and Damon?!

She was almost inattentive, in that tender moment of her despair, to the way the bear's nutmeg eyes turned inquisitively towards her. Her only thought was how she might fix the damage the polar bear had done, not to mention that wound she still had to mend upon the creature himself. Although she was hardly a typical vampire by any means, the young woman could certainly still smell that distinct metallic copper, reminding her with every movement he made that he was still bleeding and that the bullet still needed to be removed. That deep, rumbling sound caused her gaze to flicker towards the bear as she sniffled, trying to subdue those tears that so threatened to overwhelm her. She was entirely oblivious to that question that hung within the air - though Chizue had never been effective communicating with the animal kind, despite her kind heart and never wavering efforts. "Oh...please..." She muttered between those tears as she tried to wipe her eyes, watching the bear as he rose back to those massive paws. "Please be careful...." Those words had no sooner left her lips than that sharp pain seemed to radiate from the creature, causing his head to snap towards his injured flank. "You're......you're hurt and I....I have to fix it so you'll....you'll be okay." Those very words seemed nothing short of pathetic as those tears flowed anew, her own helplessness at helping him somehow only made that anxiety and despondency within the vampire all the worse.

Chizue watched as the bear moved closer towards her, the vampire all but incapable of stopping her and the bear, in turn, seemed equally as intent not to listen. His nose pressed firmly into her chest and slowly Chizue reached out to gingerly stroke his ivory fur. His head trailed upwards, the young woman hardly strong enough to stop him before that slick, wet tongue brushed against the flawless curves of her cheeks. A soft sniffle left her nose as Chizue tried to pull away ever so slightly. "It's okay." She assured him, and perhaps, even herself. Her hands rose and tentatively the girl used her sleeve to wipe away both tears and slobber. That soft cooing sound hardly seemed enough to soothe her, that hot breath only serving to wrinkle her nose ever so slightly as her ebony locks shifted with beast's exhale. That pitiful whine prompted a weak simper upon her features as she sniffled again, trying to find that strength within her - at least for his sake. "It'll be okay....we'll just....get that bullet out of you and...then I can fix the chairs and...um..put back the cardboard...." Her voice got steadily weaker as she continued to survey the damage to her home. "Maybe....maybe I can put the rug over the hole for now?" She inquired weakly, hardly wanting any sort of unwelcomed guests in her small little home. Slowly, Chizue nodded to herself, as if simply agreeing with that plan. It was, admittedly, the best she was capable of at the current moment.

Softly, the girl inhaled, purposefully steadying herself before her attention turned towards the large bear. "I have to go upstairs to get stuff for your owwie okay? I need you to stay here." She tried to be firm, at least, with those last two words although she doubted he understood her in the slightest. She could only pray he might, after all, he was far too large to fit up the stairs, and she too was certain that they would hardly support his weight. It was a gamble and Chizue knew it but she had little other choices. Slowly the girl moved around the large bear towards the stairs, glancing back behind her as she uttered again, "Stay here". Chizue hardly paused as she moved towards the stairs, the girl scarcely having the courage to look back again regardless of any movement she might have heard behind her. She was all but purposeful as she marched up those steps, despite the anxiety that held fast to her chest, causing it to beat faster than was normal. It was only once she was on that landing that the girl moved swiftly, plucking a pair of tweezers from her bathroom and a set of towels and first aid supplies. Those items were clutched closely to her chest as the young woman made her way back down the stairs, almost dreading what she may find of her little townhome.
