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.

I'm a devil in disguise
Even though William had lived and grown in the modern world, there were certain things that the Englishman still couldn't get used to about the world he lived in now. And that main thing? Women. They were so forward, so willing to show their interest and to use their wits to get exactly what they wanted. It was such a change from the girls he'd been expected to marry once, and it was that in mind that the Englishman so failed to be the perfect gentleman that he'd been bred to be. The words that slipped from his mouth as he held her in his arms were words that would have made his mother certainly drop dead if she heard them. And yet, the woman in his arms didn't react negatively to his words, but rather reacted with a sweet laughter that was like music to the Hunter's ears. He expected her to blush, to shy away, to pull back. What he didn't expect, however, was the quick battle of tongue that the pair seemed to engage in as they stood threateningly close to each other.
It was that finger placed square against his chest that caused his brow to arch, that amusement still twinkling across his face as he observed her. Ah, yes, so this was all somehow his fault for getting in the way of her groove. Still, he was willing to play this game with her. He loved the way she looked surprised as he lifted that hand of hers to his lips. Now that was a gesture that his mother would be proud of him for. But he wasn't focused on that, but rather the way that this was the first thing he'd done that seemed to surprise her, to stun her. Her smile was contagious, and he found that he desperately wanted to keep that smile coming. He wanted to continue to hear her laugh, see her smile, make her day brighter somehow in a way that he hadn't done for anyone in a long, long time. That sorry excuse of an American accent only continued to bring a smile to her features.
Even if William was joking with the accent, the words that followed were anything but genuine. It would be hard for either of them to comfortably chat in ruined clothing, and William... well, he did not want to be alone. He spent enough of his time alone. The perceived protection that he was under within the city now should have allowed him to make friends, right? Her surprise this time was genuine, no longer simply because they were joking with each other. And who could blame her. Perhaps a sane man wouldn't have offered to buy a new outfit or dinner for a complete stranger, especially when the incident was definitely not his fault. But still, William was more than willing to do anything necessary to not spend the evening alone. William looked up as she spoke, smiling gently as it was her name that was offered.
"It's a pleasure to meet you, Carolina," William said, that English accent thick as he said her name, each syllable almost... musical as it left his lips. "I'm William," He offered in response, finally letting go of the young woman as he stepped back, this time his hand gently reaching out to offer his hand. "I'm afraid I don't know any of the local places to shop very well, so you shall have to lead the way. I'll trust you, as long as you don't put me in something atrocious, like cowboy boots."
