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.

Walk me home in the dead of night
I can't be alone with all that's on my mind

Such a beautiful day was rare in the city so often plagued by low hanging clouds and soft drizzles of rain, it reminded her a bit of her home. The way she would spend afternoons in an orchard reading in a pool of sunlight, though she didn't miss the suffocating humidity that so often accompanied such weather. Hindsight had a way of dulling such sharp edges of memories however and allowed her to enjoy them in such an idyllic way. It seemed like the makings of a rather similarly perfect afternoon now as she strolled lazily through the near empty downtown with that warm beverage in hand. The quiet mall seemed the perfect place for her to enjoy it, and so lost was she in her eagerness and the songs that pumped through her headphones that she was completely oblivious to the world around her. Unfortunately for the well-dressed man who was unlucky enough to be in her path.

That collision stunning her as she neither expected anyone to be near by and the force at which she literally ran into him. That coffee escaping it's container to instead coat both of them so thoroughly as she staggered backwards. She could feel herself losing her balance as that curse word fell from her sweetheart lips, so in contrast with how she had been raised but that training was something she had given up long ago. Next flowed the near instant apology for ruining a suit that was undoubtedly expensive, only then did her turquoise gaze draw from his stained button down to a face full of chiseled features and a smile which took her wholly by surprise.

She swayed slightly, finally feeling the hand he had situated on her waist to help steady her as she looked up into his eyes. There she was rather surprised to find not annoyance but rather they crinkled around the edges with his smile, a smile she found herself instinctually returning as the decidedly English lit of his reply filled the air. Wasn't that just delicious. His next remark had a soft, short laugh leaving her as she swiped a hand against her jeans to rid herself of at least some of the coffee that remained there before she raised one eyebrow in his direction. "Oh if I wanted to get your clothes off I wouldn't even need to ask." That witty remark coming near instinctually to her lips, her rather coarse tongue always a matter of contention when she was growing up and time had not changed that fact.

Perhaps it was due to the recent quarantine paired with the sinking of the Ark which had left the leopard not only bored but rather isolated which had her not instantly stepping away from the hold he still placed on her waist. Instead she raised her hand to place one figure squarely into his damp chest. "You, however, should know better than to get in front of a girl when she's in a groove." Despite the incident being entirely her fault she couldn't help but play the games she was so familiar with, if only to see how he would react.
