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.

More than just a landmark, the Starlight Tower offers a unique mix of restaurants, shops, and offices spaced throughout the building. Organized into nine verticle zones, each of which features a sky lobby and a light-filled garden atrium which merge the upscale interior with a faux landscaped exterior setting.
Her answer wasn't helpful in the least but what did he expect, really? He raised a brow in puzzlement, wishing he knew her well enough to get more out of her but knowing at this point, he had to accept what he could get. Even as he kept his own gaze on the sidewalk they were walking on, he could feel her own heavy gaze on himself as if daring him to look up. Usually he was never one to back down from a challenge. He'd always been the rebellious type, after all. But he'd started to feel out of place in Sacrosanct as of late and she just felt....otherworldly to him. It left him feeling vulnerable, something he never felt unless it came to matters of the heart. He had never felt helpless until that moment in the park with the little girl and this one. Something about her was dangerous and his gut was telling him to tread carefully. He hated it, hated this feeling. Why couldn't he just look up, meet her gaze, and give her a big ol' smirk like he would usually do when faced with a dare?
Her sudden voice brought his feet to a stop and he looked up to see where she'd decided on. The pub was well known throughout Sacrosanct and it usually stayed busy at all hours. He had come through a few times looking for a beer but the vibe in the pub was the same he got from being around her or the girl in the park. Otherworldly. So of course she would choose to come here. He felt himself stiffen in response but tried to look more confident than he felt, offering a small smirk as he nodded. "Alright." He followed her inside, feeling very much not confident about this at all. When she picked a corner booth to slide into, he swallowed before following, sliding in across from her. At least here he could keep his eyes on all the entrances and exits of the bar. Not that it might help him if she pulled another stunt like she did in the jewelry store but it gave him a false sense of security and at this point, he was desperate enough to accept it. When the orders came, he got a double crown and coke, sure that he was going to need all the alcohol to get through this in one piece.
The appetizer was a good distraction from all the bad vibes he was picking up in this place, not to mention some of the hungrier looks he was getting from some of the patrons, both female and male. His shoulders twitched s he forced himself to look away, sure that if he looked at any of them too long, they might be all too happy to take it up as an invitation. The purr from the woman's lips brought his surprising gaze up to meet hers finally before she spoke. She cut straight to the point and he cleared his throat and took a swig of his drink, licking his lips before answering. "What are you? I don't think you're human." There, he'd said it. Now she could laugh it off and tell him it was just magic tricks and he was crazy.
