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. The University welcomes the talent of students across the world to enroll and unlock their unlimited potential. With applications from across the nation, classes fill up quickly.

Maybe this princess could save herself.



That sounds like a pretty good story too.


While Samantha was certainly pleased by Kit's favorable reaction to the news that she had presented him, the young fae certainly hadn't expected the eruption of excitement from him. After all, the two of them hardly knew each other. They'd spent two evenings together, and even though they had spoken extensively during that time, Samantha was not oblivious to the fact that they were mostly strangers. She'd expected that same level of hesitation that she felt towards the whole situation. A child... especially a fae child... that was not something she'd had planned for herself. Even before her fateful turning, she hadn't expected a family like this, at least not until she was much, much older. Though, she supposed, she was nearing thirty years old in human standards, even if her body didn't look or feel a day over eighteen. But still, his enthusiasm was contagious, and Samantha found herself smiling along with him, something she'd thought impossible only minutes before.

Days ago the young woman had been hesitant to admit even to herself - hell, especially to herself - that she was pregnant. And now the young woman found herself explaining the extent of her powers to Kit. It seemed far too soon to be able to truly feel the child that stirred within her, and yet she definitely couldn't deny those flutters that came from it. That anxiety of the unknown certainly came out then, the girl suddenly relieved to not be alone in this anymore. Or at least, she thought that she wasn't alone. Kit seemed more than willing to be here, to be her partner at least in parenting. But it was her power when it came to him that had the young woman hesitating. There were many that knew of her abilities, of course, and yet she still felt like she was prying on something private. She couldn't turn them off, of course, and even now as her power had gotten stronger, she could read a person's thoughts without the need to touch them if only she could focus in on a singular emotion of theirs. It felt like such an invasion of privacy to the girl, and yet she was unable to entirely block it out, even when she wanted to.

"I'm satisfied," Samantha said, giving his hand a gentle squeeze. "Though I wouldn't say I'm entirely out of the clear on being worried. I'm still... petrified about everything else." She didn't elaborate, instead allowing that conversation to shift towards her creation. Samantha's gaze shot up to him, that flash of anger so brilliant in the man across from her. "It's okay, honestly. I spent a lot of time being upset and afraid of those dumb girls, but..." She shrugged a little. "I went back to New York a few years ago, I tracked them down. The worst part was that they were such a big part of my fears and they didn't even recognize me." It had been such a huge blow to the girl. She'd spent months terrorized by the girls - though most of that had been the illusions of Frost's targeting - and when she'd tracked them down, she'd been met with a wall of indifference. She'd perceived them as cruel, sadistic beings intent on having some sort of control over her. In reality, they were nothing more than sad party girls who had been bored and she had had the misfortune of being their plaything.

Samantha hardly expected him to react at all to her musings about encountering a winged fae. In fact, her mind was rather distant, her thoughts on that evening in which Troy had taken her flying. How terrifying the notion had been at the time, that certain fear of heights having surged within the girl. And yet now, she almost longed for that sort of adventure. "Hm?" Samantha said after a moment, the questioning tone of his voice drawing her back in. For a moment, the young woman merely stared at the handsome fae across from her. How little her attention could be on Troy when Kit sat in front of her, his gorgeous features making her stomach flip. She didn't answer his question yet, her attention momentarily broken from that line of thought by the reassurance from him that this pregnancy would not be an easy one for her.

There was plenty of time to discuss that, instead she brought herself back to her own feelings for him. Her heart certainly skipped a beat as his smile grew on his features, the girl entirely captivated by his smile and his warmth. How she wanted to crawl into his arms. "I feel the same way," She admitted, gently standing up and moving to the seat beside him. It was the closest she could get to him and be decent in such a public setting, though admittedly the girl wanted so much more. "To answer your question, yes. It was around here. A couple years ago, but I saw him again about a year or so ago. But don't worry, you have no competition." She flashed him a warm smile, confident that the best thing she could do was to focus on making sure that he was the sole owner of her heart, at least as long as he wanted it to be.
