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.
The silence that filled the car on the way back to Carolina's house was muffling but understandable given all that had just transpired. Alexis stared out the window and tried to come to terms with how the only place that had ever felt like home was gone now. What was going to happen to the pack now? Would they all scatter to different corners of Sacrosanct and hardly see each other? Would Tetradore be able to get another place for all of them or would she have to look for her own apartment? Alexis cringed at the idea. She still barely understood money, let alone rent and utilities and all the other things that came with having your own place. Plus the idea of being alone all the time scared the hell out of her. She had gotten so used to always having someone around, whether it be Raven or Tobias, Tetradore or Mira. She knew Carolina and trusted her, but they didn't really hang out a lot so it still felt like she was riding with a stranger.
She was sure that might change since she was going to stay with the other Were, at least temporarily. Alexis didn't want to overstay her welcome and she hardly wanted the other woman to resent her being there in her personal space so she told herself she'd keep a low profile and try to stay out of Carolina's way. Alexis couldn't stop thinking about the Ark sinking. Was it an accident or something more? Did someone attack them? Another pack? Was the truce between Frost and Tetradore still intact? It wasn't long before Carolina parked the car and Alexis looked around in surprise, blinking as she was brought back to the present from her overwhelming thoughts. The other woman didn't live far from the docks at all. As Carolina got out of the car, Alexis followed her more timidly, grabbing the lone bag she'd managed to stuff full of all her important things before the Ark went down. Giving Carolina a shy smile, she followed the other Were up the stairs to the second floor, looking around in curiosity all the time.
She'd never actually been in one of these apartment buildings before, though she saw plenty in Sacosanct. She spent most of her time in the woods or with Alexander and he hardly lived in an apartment. As she walked into Carolina's room, she paused to look around. It was cozy but had a home-like feel to it. It wasn't cold or too tidy and Alexis instantly felt a little more comfortable. As Carolina spoke, she turned to her and nodded. "I do get cold so that's helpful. I don't watch much tv but I bet it's nice on rainy days." She was trying her best at light conversation, all while shifting her weight from foot to foot while she balanced the bag over her shoulder. Carolina pointed out the spare room and she smiled in thanks before slowly walking around to the door. She set her bag on the bed to come back for, coming back to the door as Carolina told her about food in the fridge, even offering to go to the store later. She gave a light shrug, feeling so out of her depth already.
"Thank you, Carolina. To be honest, Raven did all the cooking and shopping so I'm lost in that department but I'm sure I'll find something when I'm hungry." She knew Carolina was just trying to be welcoming and she really appreciated it and wanted her to know that. When something touched her ankle, she gasped and jumped a little, looking down just as Carolina introduced the cat that now looked very puzzled at her reaction. She smiled sheepishly as she crouched down to offer her hand to the cat if he wanted to smell her then ran her hand gently down his back. "Hello, Grayson. I hope you won't mind having another roommate for a little while." As she straightened up, her brow furrowed in concern. "I promise I'll try not to be a bother and I really do appreciate you offering me a place to stay. I'll, uh, try to find something as soon as possible so I can get out of your hair." It seemed the polite thing to do, though she had no clue where to start. Maybe Alexander or Raven could help.
