The southern part of the city has a chic family-oriented sort of charm to it. Here, small locally owned shops run rampant, neighbors often know each other by name, and the monthly socials are an event not to be missed. In the South, children can often be seen safely playing in the park or on sidewalks and in the weekends, families often take to the beach to enjoy the warm waters surrounding the city.

The Ascension Center of Equitation is the epicenter of the Dark Hunter Cavalry Unit. Originally a high-class facility for show-jumping, Ascension now caters entirely to the Cavalry Unit. Here the Dark Hunters learn how to ride and fight upon the backs of horses - many of which are Were's themselves.

Resting right on the beach near the small, locally owned shops and markets sits a bar and bistro with an elegant yet modern interior. There is seating both indoors and outdoors on the back patio where one can enjoy the melodic sounds of saltwater waves and fresh air. The menu consists of French dishes alongside American and Seafood choices and a wide range of liquors at the bar inside to accommodate the varied tastes and cravings of its customers. It is a charming little establishment that allows for those needing a break from the busy city streets to come and unwind.
Hyde Place takes up a large part of the Southern side of the city and includes a large playground, several fountains, and a small garden. The park is open from five in the morning till midnight though many shady characters may visit this place while it's technically "closed". The park has also been a venue for several concerts and hosts many holiday-related events. Under a full moon, witches are often seen here for the sacred ground beneath the iconic Weeping Beech.
Beyond the city limits and over the bridge lies the deep, dark, and almost impenetrable forest. Often seen as a way to guard this magical city against the world that surrounds it, many are entirely ignorant of the evil that may creep between those tree trunks. Many were-creatures use the forest for the transformations of their newest members and some even take to hunting here. It isn't particularly peculiar for people to go missing within this forest but once you get through, the rest of the world awaits.

Finally. Finally he could wisk her away and have her all to himself. And that's exactly what he was going to do. After some half hearted good bye's and polite pleasantries, Damon reached for his wife's hand, brushing his lips against it in a kiss before giving her a subtle wink that said all too well what he was thinking. It was time to go. He'd had more than enough of sharing her with the crowd and letting them gossip and fawn over her swollen belly in that beautiful dress. Now she was all his for a while. And he'd never want it to end; he knew that, already. He waved to a few people and went so far as to pick her up, cradling her gently to his chest as the limo pulled up and the driver came around to get the door. "You'll have to get used to this treatment sooner or later, darling. Might as well start now."
He whispered the words lovingly into her ear as he placed her inside the limo and closed the door behind him. He was quick to slide right up against her till their legs were touching. As they started driving, he found his hand cradling her own, his thumb drawing small circles on the back of her palm as if he didn't know he was doing it. He had a small knowing smile on his face as he looked out the window, waiting for the hundreds of questions he was sure was going to start at any moment. He had done well to keep the honeymoon plans a secret from her, knowing that it would drive her crazy. He had so many surprises for her and he wanted to keep them all to himself until they were well and truly alone. As the word "alone" hit him, he was quick to sweep his gaze over to her large stomach, the corners of his lips quirking as he leaned down.
"And how is Salvatore Jr. doing today? I haven't had a lot of time to have our chats like we usually do. Your bridesmaids don't play when it comes to separating bride and groom." He scowled, obviously displeased with not having her in sight for the best part of the last 48 hours or so. He loved to tease her about the baby being a boy, knowing that she was utterly convinced that it would be a girl. He knew he wouldn't care either way. He would be sure to be wrapped around their little finger in no time.
