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.

She could see easily enough that Alexander was less than impressed about the notion of movies that pertained to horses. She tilted her head, a coy smirk pulling at her lips as she studied him for a moment. "Guess I'll have to get a different opinion, then. Seems movies aren't the best guide according to my 'trainer.'" She emphasized the last word teasingly, one brow arching slyly as she watched for his reaction.

When she mentioned one of her favorite movies, he had the audacity to say he'd never seen it and she couldn't help but gasp a little. "Well, that just won't do. Sounds like me and you are due for a movie night some time. I've got to catch you up on what Hollywood is saying about your precious horses." She kept petting the mare as she spoke. Her fur was so soft and it seemed to please the mare, her eyes drifting almost half closed as she plodded along with Alexander's mount.

She did like the way he spoke of romance though and how he put through the effort to bring something to life for her. It somehow didn't seem very characteristic for the usually stoic man, but it only made her adore him more. Her eyes lit up as she looked over at him, like she was falling all over again. Of course, the magic was broken when he mentioned returning to the barn which would mean the inevitable end of their horseback ride. She gave a sigh, but nodded along, even adding a tease about curfew. He agreed and she could almost hear the laughter in his voice as they started back along the path that would take them back to the barn. She noticed that she had actually gotten comfortable on the mare's back, having hardly noticed the effort to stay with her as they'd been talking.

As the sun set to the side of the path, she let her gaze follow it, her lips parted in awe. It really was a beautiful sight. Once they got back to the barn, she tried to stay out of Alexander's way, knowing he was much more adept at the untacking and putting the horses up. When he got off his horse and asked how she liked it, she smiled. "It was kind of fun." She found herself saying as she patted the mare's neck again. "Definitely something I could see myself repeating." She knew that's most likely what he wanted to hear and she was being genuine when she said it. Riding was fun. She wanted to do it more. She couldn't help but give the mare a last affectionate pat before he put her up, leaning in to breathe in her horsey smell as she gave a gentle kiss to her soft muzzle. "Thanks for the ride, girl. You went easy on me and I'm grateful to you." Her gaze turned back to the Hunter as she watched him finish putting everything up. "And thank you for everything."
