South

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.

Ascension Center of Equitation

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.

Beachside Bar & Bistro

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 Park

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.

The Outskirts

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.

He tried to explain that she needed to balance her weight on her stomach, instead of gripping the board with her hands. She seemed a little confused and a little irritated that he would tell her to do something a little out of the norm for her. When she likened the action to a seal, he nodded. "Exactly like a seal. It's easier than you think." Once she would just relax and let her body do what it was designed to do, she might be pleasantly surprised at what she was capable of doing.

Finally, they made it out to a little deeper water. Ashton stood on a sandbar, the water coming up to his waistline. He was thankful that it was hiding the problem he seemed to be having trouble getting rid of. Most importantly, it allowed him to be able to help stabilize her on the board. He promised her he would look after her and he had every intention to do just that.

He watched as she explored the art of balancing on the board. Her hands moved out to her side, playing in the water. At least she was getting more and more comfortable in the ocean, which was more than enough to make him happy. This allowed him to relax a little himself, allowing his eyes to wander. Unfortunately, instead of wandering to the beach or to the sky, they wander directly to her breasts which were right in his line of sight. He tried to look away quickly, but she had caught him.

He shifted nervously, trying not to draw attention to the fact that he had been caught looking at her breasts. Even though she was clothed in a small bikini, this was more skin than he was used to seeing so up close and personal. It only made his desire for her grow, something he was trying very hard to keep in check. She commented on his tense behavior and he offered her a smile, hopefully trying to brush off her concerns as nothing. "I'm okay...I just..." He wasn't sure if he should admit to her that he didn't usually see people so close in bikinis. He was used to most of his people being men or women in wet suits. "...I'm just not used to teaching young women. I'm trying to keep professional." There, that was tactful. Perhaps she would just leave it be. Something told him she might ask him further questions. He had learned that Malia didn't quite understand social norms amongst humans.

He mentioned that he used to come to the water and surf every morning. She smirked, asking if he did so before the skating rink opened up. He couldn't help but chuckle. "You could say that. I grew up in a small town, there wasn't many options for fun." If he wasn't surfing, working his farm, or helping out his family, he would try to have some fun. The town only had one restaurant, a bowling alley attached to a skating rink, and a bar. There just weren't that many options.

Ashton kept a look out behind him, noting that there was a wave building. It would be a smaller wave, the perfect wave for Malia to learn with. He turned to her with a smile. "There's a wave coming. You're going to paddle forward on your belly and when the wave begins to break, you're going to try to stand up on the board. You're going to fall in many times before you are able to stand. It just takes practice. I'm confident you'll get it. Ready?" And before she had time to answer, he was giving her a gentle push forward. He would be close by so when she did fall, he would reach down and grab her.
