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


Like any other expecting mother, she was excited to share with her friend the ultrasound photo of her unborn son. When the Fae King leaned in to take a closer look at the image, she wasn't surprised at all when his eyes squinted as he attempted to make out the outline of the baby. In all honesty, even she had a hard time making out the image of her child. To help, Raven quietly moved her other hand, and with her index finger, started to outline the shape of the baby, hoping that would help him. In agreement at his mention of how technologically advanced, she nodded solemnly. To think, a man that has lived through hundreds and hundreds of years, seen the latest technology men had at the time, and seeing how quickly it evolved to today must seem wonderful and terrifying at the same time. If time travel was possible, Raven was sure that any piece of technology she brought with her, would be used against her as the townspeople would claim she was a witch. The Italian King, thankfully, wasn't quick to accuse every technological marvel of magic. After he had a good look at the photo, she tapped the screen to lock and slipped her phone back into her pocket.

Putting together this particular outing was not hard, but coming up with the idea was. Usually, the two drank tea at the Italian Kings' house or a local cafe within the city. The last time they did an activity together was the hunting trip, and somehow that rabbit she killed magically came back to life. Killing a rabbit was something she was capable of doing without much thought. Find the rabbit, chase the rabbit, kill the rabbit. Since a pup, she knew how to kill a rabbit and other small prey animals. Not once when she hunted with the pack did a similar scenario play out, where the dead prey animal would magically come back to life. How this occurred, she had no idea. Usually, when she slept, if she had a nightmare, it was about her Father or her pack. Yet after that incident with Dorian, some of her nightmares would be about zombie rabbits. Painting a stencil on and wooded block seemed like fun. After explaining to the Fae the activity they'd participate in, and clarifying a bit, she was pleased to see how he was a bit more willing to participate. Showing the finished stencil, she beamed quite proudly, happy to see her idea was a good one.

"Thank you! I thought it would be good. I'm not sure if he cares about the gender of our baby he doesn't always talk about his thoughts or feelings. I am sure though he is happy that we're expecting. He likes listening to his heartbeat or feeling him kick."

Placing herself on the stool, she felt relieved to give her feet and legs a bit of relief. Waiting for Dorian to make his selection, she took one of her cookies and munched it quietly as she poured herself a cup of tea. Once he pointed out his selection, the shop owner nodded and turned around to head into the back of her shop to start creating his stencil. Gesturing for Dorian to sit down, she poured him a cup of tea, making sure he was comfortable.

"She selects the template on the computer, configures it to what you need, then it prints."

As the two chatted and caught up, the owner would come back with Dorian's stencil, holding it out for the two of them to see. Placing the stencil on his block of wood, the owner would help move the cookies and tea out of the way to a different table. The owner would then bring to them two hammers, and then two trays of different kinds of wood stains and paint. Instructing them to remove their stencils from the block, she would explain to the two that they'll be able to put some scratches and notches on their smooth block of wood. Without any hesitation, Raven would grab her hammer and start banging the wood, unbothered by the loud sound the metal would make when it hit the wood. After smacking random areas on her block of wood, she'd turn it around and allow the shop curve to dig into the wood slightly, bringing a bit of character to her board. Blue-grey eyes looked over to Dorian, curious to see how he was doing with his block of wood.

"Do you need some help? You don't have to give your wood any dents if you don't want to...it'll help make it a bit more natural before we put the stain on it."

i'm not ashamed of my scars,
i'm ashamed of the world for not understanding.
