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.

Raven Cain


It had only been a few minutes, and already her deviant husband was testing her faith on whether or not he could be trustworthy to be with their son. She knew she could say no, and yet, that wasn't a statement she often said to him. Most of the time, he never asked her if he could do anything. He'd do it without her opinion, and the two of them would suffer the consequences of his actions. Those consequences of his actions could vary from being harmless to being gravely serious. Whether he learned from his actions or not couldn't be said. The man lived in the moment and not the past. What happened 5 minutes ago would be forgotten. Shifting her gaze from her son to her husband, she noticed the uncertain look in his eye and the tone of hesitancy in his voice, and the new Mother felt her heart start to break. Here was a man asking permission to hold his own son. As a parent, he had every equal right to interacting with his child. When Nadya had her children, it was obvious to everyone that she wouldn't let Tobias, or anyone else for that matter, be around her children. She would be the same as Nadya if she didn't give him a chance. Steeling her nerves, she agreed to his request, adjusting slightly, and gently place their son in his waiting arms.

It would take a few minutes before Raven would let go and allow Tobias to hold their son all on his own. Was she terrified that he could drop him? Yes. When they practiced with the baby doll, he would accidentally drop the baby and proclaim that it wasn't his fault. Now that he was holding their actual son, Raven was sure that he would be a bit more careful. Encouraging Tobias to greet their son, she chuckled as he responded without any emotion and said 'hello' to their son. To others, that would be a concern that there was no inflection in his voice, and yet, it didn't bother Raven at all. Instead, she was quite pleased he said anything at all! Shifting over her bed, she reached over to grab her phone off the bedside table, tapping the screen to get the camera on. Making sure the flash on the camera was turned off, she positioned her phone to get a few photos of Tobias looking at his son as he held him. It was quite an endearing scene. Unsure if Tobias would remember this moment or not, she made sure to capture the moment, and in the future, place the snapshot in their photo album. Setting her phone on the bed, she shifted slightly to get a little bit more comfortable to discuss possible names. Suggesting the name Rhett, she patiently waited as he sounded it out, letting him practice to see if he approved or not. When he did, she smiled and nodded.

"I thought you'd like it."

While pregnant, Raven would look over possible baby names, trying to find one that her husband would have no problems pronouncing and one that had meaning she liked. Not to mention, she had to find a name that would not encourage school children to make fun of the name, because the school children would tase them about their own Father. How did the she-wolf know this? Because at the Ark, she would walk around to collect bets, help out her packmates, or get ready to participate in a fight, she could hear their whispered insults. If grown adults did this, then it was safe to say that the children would do the same. In her opinion, Rhett was a strong and good name, one that she was sure Tobi would like. If he wanted Rhett to be the middle, then what would be the first? Raven recalled Tobias' other-half claiming he didn't want his son to have his name. With that option off the table, Raven pondered on just what the first name their child could have. Shifting slightly, she leaned over to gently stroke her son's cheek, smiling when his bright blue eyes shifted into her direction.

Once again, her heart would skip a beat, the new Mother could hardly believe that this moment was actually happening. Everything that happened tonight couldn't have been done with Tetradore. She and Tobias first met along the docks in the West, because he was busy looking for Tetradore. After being caught by zookeepers, it was Tetradore, without her knowing who he was, that helped her escape. Before she joined his pack, Tetradore offered her a room within the Ark. He gave her a job and accepted her into his pack, even though he knew of her...condition. While her relationship with Tobias grew Tetradore didn't seem troubled by it at all. The life she and Tobias had wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for him. He gave them a home and a pack to call family, something the two of them didn't grow up having. Looking back at her husband she gave him a soft smile.

"What if we named him Aiden, after Tetra? He's done everything for us. We'll call him Rhett though. How about it Tobi? Our son's name would be Aiden Rhett Cain."

i'm ashamed of the world for not understanding.
