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.

Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium

The Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium (PDZA) is an award-winning combined zoo and aquarium located within the Southern Part of Sacrosanct. Situated on 92 acres in Sacrosanct's Hyde Park, the zoo and aquarium are home to over 9,000 specimens representing 367 animal species. Point Defiance is also widely known for its conversation efforts regarding the breed and release program of Red Wolves.

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.

The University of Sacrosanct

The University of Sacrosanct offers some of the top programs in the nation with its outstanding campus and specialized faculty. The University places a high focus both upon educating future generations but also on research to help revolutionize the world.

After not living so very close to the pack after a few months, the thought of anyone stumbling in on the two of them was far from the forefront of her mind. Living in a secluded area, the majority of the pack not having vehicles to get to them reinforced the idea that they were alone and had nothing to worry about. Raven knew that Tetradore and Mira would arrive before the moon rose, and yet she was sure that she and Tobias could have an intimate moment together without Mira and Tetradore knowing. It was silly of her to think that they could have gotten away with it. However, that mixture of her hormones, lust, and the pull of the moon provided the woman a sense of self-confidence and bravery to do such a reckless thing. Sometimes her deviants' nativity did her some good. That she would think the two of them were playing a game as they got dressed made it much easier. As for him not accidentally saying what they did, well, she knew that was a big risk. Meeting her Alpha and Mira awkwardly in the living room, the poor woman stammered and tried to explain their absence. Her cheeks remained a violent red, her hands finding one another as she began to twist her fingers around, a known habit when she got nervous. Mira's teasing made Raven's cheek change to a deeper color, as she stuttered a reply.

"I-I-I, I can run j-just fine, I'm -o-okay."

There was no way Tetradore or Tobias would help her out of this mess. Not knowing what else to do she stared at the bag of cookies Mira was holding, feeling very uncomfortable with all eyes on her. The she-wolf was never the kind of person that relished being in the spotlight. When Mira mentioned how everyone was feeling the effects of the moon, she couldn't help, but nod fervently in agreement. Surely everyone understood that her actions were a mistake, or that this could've happened to them. Although if she and Tobi stepped in on Tetradore or Mira in the aftermath of their tryst, they wouldn't be in the least embarrassed by it at all. Not caring what others think about them or self-confidence were attributes she didn't have, but in this moment, she desperately wished she did. The moon's pull on their species was overpowering, and being pregnant, didn't make it any easier. Quietly she moved away from her mate as he invited Tetradore to see the latest video game she had bought him earlier. Grateful that they were trying to move beyond this slip-up, she shuffled quickly towards Mira, keeping her head down as they headed towards the kitchen. Taking the bag Mira was carrying she quickly fished for a cookie and devoured the whole thing in seconds. Placing a hand on her belly she nodded with reassurance, speaking quite softly.

"According to the Doctor everything is going very well. My hormones and cravings are unstable though. I've been trying to prepare, like getting a nursery and other baby things. My Doctor said that I need to take birthing classes, and as much as I'd like Tobi to come with me...I need another partner. Would you like to go with me? I know it won't be much fun, but we can do whatever you want afterward. My treat."

It wasn't Mira's responsibility to attend those birthing classes with her. It honestly wasn't anyone's responsibility but her own. Although she had her mate to assist her, at the end of the day she would be the one doing all the work. They weren't living in the Ark, so relying on her pack for assistance wasn't going to be an option. And yet, she didn't want to go to this class alone. It would be really nice to have a friend come along with her. The last time they did something together, they were in danger, but she was sure that a birthing class would be a safe thing to do together. Turning her head around, she briefly looked over in the direction of the living room where Tetradore and Tobias were focused on the video game. Refocusing on Mira she took a step closer, muttering quite softly.

"That town you passed before you got here, I ran into the warlock we recused. He mentioned the Dark Hunters and vampires back at that warehouse were on the prowl for our kind again. When Tobi and I run about, I don't catch anything amiss, but when we run...do you mind using your nose? For all, we know my senses are a bit blurred with my hormones all screwy."

That pull from the moon was far too difficult to ignore now. Nodding in agreement that it was time they head out, she followed after her to the back porch. While the rest of them were beginning to shift she couldn't help but wince from the pain slightly. Shifting while pregnant was slightly different than what she was used to. Placing one hand on the side of the cabin, she started to crouch down, placing her other hand on the ground. Once her shift was complete that hand that was settled on the wall of the cabin was a grey paw on the ground. As a wolf, her sides were a bit more swollen than usual. It had been a very long time since she ran with another member of the pack. Stepping down the porch steps, she slowly went to Mira and Tetradore, nuzzling the two gently to get familiar with their scent again. Taking a step back, she turned to her mate, wagging her tail, and then looked over at the panther and leopard.

"So, what would you two like to see? Run through the valley with the fireflies or dodge some trees and make it to the small waterfall?"

i'm not ashamed of my scars,
i'm ashamed of the world for not understanding.
