What You'll Find Here
Situated above the daily life of the city, Anacosta Heights is a tucked away suburb featuring extravagant neo-gothic inspired mansions. The inhabitants of this neighborhood often show their overwhelming wealth with sports cars lining their long, circular driveways, large pools, and manicured gardens. The homeowners of Anacosta Heights treasure their privacy as seen by the high iron gates to the security personnel present at every entrance.
Dupont Circle is a small suburban neighborhood settled within the serene portion of the southern portion of town. These four-bedroom, single-family homes feature back yards, porches, garages, and far more breathing space then the Village offers. This neighborhood often is more family orientated and even has organized events for children and the neighborhood as a whole.
Settled in the middle of downtown, Hawthorn Village consists of several victorian inspired row houses just off the main street. Due to it's convenience to just about everything, the village can be a tad expensive to live within. However, the residents of this neighborhood often have two to three-story townhouses, often with a one to two-car garage. Many of the houses feature bay windows and/or rooftop terraces with a small fenced-in 'yard'.
River Dale primarily consists of apartments that, despite their age and industrial appearing interior, still hold to the Victorian history that permeates the town. These apartments are often the cheapest option and sport scuffed, older wooden floors, open floor plans, visible beams, and the occasional brick wall.
Nadya felt completely at ease in Katrin's presence, the pair finding common ground as both mothers and those who cared for Frost. Nadya was nothing short of amused at the tales Katrin had to share of Frost growing up. If anything else it gave her an insight on what they might expect with their own child. The twins are well were greatly entertained sitting on the floor at Katrin's feet. They had never known his world and though they couldn't understand everything that she spoke of, the still liked to hear the stories. Nadya would absently graze her small swell of an abdomen. "I hope it has his hair though." His hair...his eyes...how she cherished those parts of him and wanted any child of theirs to inherit.
There was no indication on what the night would bring as Nadya curled against Frost to drift off in that very satiated sleep. The sharp pain that stirred Nadya from her sleep was one she had never felt before. The fog of sleep had her fumbling to pull on that satin slip and shuffle to the bathroom so she wouldn't wake Frost. He had been sleeping so soundly lately that she hated to disturb that; even ushering the twins from the room when they would bolt in first thing in the morning so that he got to sleep in. All thought of keeping quiet flew from her mind as that blinding bathroom light woke her to the red tainting her hand and thighs. Her cry for him, her mate, her Alpha, was automatic. Those past few days of happiness would seem like a dream now.
Nadya was still frantically attempting to staunch the bleeding with the hand towel when Frost appeared in the doorway. Even as she met his gaze she could not find the words to express that pain and fear that swam in her eyes. Nadya could only nod mutely when Frost wrapped the towel about her before swiftly leaving to fetch his mother.
She was both relieved and frightened when Katrin rushed into the bathroom. What would Katrin possibly think of her now?...Failing to carry her son's child. "I...I don't know what happened... it..just won't ...stop." Nadya stammered as tears sprung to her eyes though followed Katrin's orders to step within the shower. The water stained red as it washed the blood from her body and down the drain. It felt like her heart was going to explode seeing that red water slither away. It made it all the more real as Katrin softly confirmed what neither Frost nor Nadya could bring themselves to admit. A miscarriage at the beginning of her second trimester. There had been no indications of something being wrong which made it that much harder to accept.
Nadya once more had fresh towels pressed between her legs and around her before Katrin left to call for an ambulance. She hardly wanted Katrin to leave, finding some comfort in the older woman's knowledgeable hands, and yet it was her mate's arms she wished to be in as well. In that moment she felt like a failure. She had carried the twins with no problem despite having never planned on them like they had so fervently with this pregnancy. How could this be taken from them? The moment Frost wrapped his arms around her and pulled her close though was when those tears readily fell and that sorrow completely took over. "We were supposed to find out what it was..." Nadya's head buried against his chest to stifle those sobs.
The last thing that was needed was for the twins to witness the event but with their mother's shout and the commotion they had woken. It was their mother's ingrained rule to stay put if they heard danger but as the minutes ticked on they grew frantic. The sound of those distant ambulance sirens growing louder as they drew closer caused them to flee from the bedroom that adjoined their mother's. "Mama?" Izzy's confused and worried voice sounded from the bathroom doorway, clutching that stuffed horse toy that Frost had gifted them years ago. Micah was silent beside her clutching his stuffed leopard toy with eyes wide in confused fright at the blood.
