West

The western part of the city is often home to the poorer residents. Here there is a grunginess that permeates the town from the graffiti on the once cleaned brick buildings to the broken and unmaintained architecture. Crime runs high within the western half of town, making it the home of supernatural gangs of illicit activities. Such activities are rarely reported, however, and most residents are distrustful of individual's of authorities, and often let the powerful supernatural beings sort things out amongst themselves. Be careful wandering the Western streets after the sun falls.

Black Market

Just like any city - Sacrosanct is not without it's deep, dark underbelly. Hidden in the graffiti-ridden streets of the West, behind closed warehouse doors, lies the Black Market. Forever moving, it's nearly impossible to find without knowing someone who knows someone. Anything you desire can be brought for a hefty price within the Black Market - be it drugs, weapons, or lives.

What You'll Find Here

Edge of the Circle

Cull & Pistol

Hidden within the dark alleyways of the Western Ward, Cull & Pistol is a dim, often smoky bar. With a small variety of bottled and craft beers, Cull & Pistol is a quaint little neighborhood joint. With its no-frills moto, the dingy bar offers little more than liquor, music from an old jukebox, and a few frequently occupied pool tables.

Noah's Ark

Resting upon the harbor, Noah's Ark appears to be little more than an abandoned cargo ship. Accessible from an entrance hidden in the shadows, The Ark is a veritable Were-playground that specializes in fighting tournaments for all creatures great and small. With both singles and doubles tournaments to compete in, the title of Ark Champion is hotly contested amongst the Were population. If anything illegal is going on in the city it's sure to be happening within the back rooms or behind the ring-side bar. Note: This is a Were only establishment. All other species will be swiftly escorted out.

Syn

Within the turbulent industrial district lies this club. The warehouse doesn't look like much on the outside but it provides a memorable experience from the state of the art lighting, offbeat Victorian-inspired artwork, comfortable black leather lounges, and the infamous 'black light' room. There is a wide variety of alcohol that lines the shelves of both of the magical and ordinary variety. It is a common stomping ground for the supernatural who want to let loose and dance the night away to the music that floods the establishment. Humans are most welcome if they dare.

God I Want to Dream Again

You know I'm well aware we spent one time together. It was an interesting way to celebrate my 21st birthday. I doubt anyone else had anything similar. Even though we had our fun baking a delicious chocolate cake, drinking a very good whiskey, and playing an enjoyable game it wasn't that difficult to see the green-eyed man was a bit morose. Why he could be she didn't know. I just assumed he was. I don't think I was wrong. Although I also didn't think he would be so insistent on why I baked him muffins and snuck into his room to drop them off. I mean my God, didn't I tell him not to punch a gift horse in the mouth? Because that is exactly what he is doing. Fine, he wants to know so badly I'll happily tell him. That's right I'm going to tell him! See it's because of, wait, am I really going to tell him? I mean I don't think he'll like my answer. Then again he doesn't seem peeved I've been sneaking into his room all this time. With a simple shrug I answer him honestly, looking him straight in the eye.

"Because, you seemed sad."

That's right buddy. I did all of this, because you seemed sad. Hell, you still seem a bit off. Especially when I asked why you are hardly capable of getting some good sleep. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Now, am I trying to get his heart? No, of course not. I'm not his type. However, if he sees a basket full of muffins every day surely that ought to make him not feel sad even if it is only for a fleeting moment. Everyone deserves to be happy even if it is only for a little while. The crumb thing though. Man that is weird. Why in the world he would be so caught up about crumbs in his bed and not people coming and going from his room, is simply baffling. Absolutely baffling. When Tetradore finally answers with a shrug I blink for a moment. Huh, well that makes sense. That's actually a pretty good answer. Although I'm not sure if I'd like my pack mates coming and going into my own territory. Maybe it's because of the whole pack bonding thing? Would I have that need to be close to others if I was in a pack? Looking at my muffin I mutter softly and then go on finishing the muffin.

"Oh."

Hearing his teasing voice about me entering his bed too easily makes me giggle. Well, he didn't hear me giggle, but I promise you in my head I was giggling. He's funny. Like I'd easily crawl and sleep with a guy I barely know? I'll make him muffins, but I sure as hell won't be interacting with him like that. Could I sleep with him? Sure could. He's quite easy on the eyes and handsome too. However, he already had his delight in having muffins with chocolate and Bailey's. He is not going to get anything else from me. I'm not that kind of girl. But I'm also not the type to throw away this grand opportunity to push the envelope, even if it is just for a little bit. Leaning into him and running my hand through his hair I happily play the siren's part, purposefully tempting him only to pull away at the end. Well, that was fun! With my muffin all finished, I handed him the wrapper, easily inquiring him about what he would do today. It sounded boring and awful. He could use a break. Although I'd like spend my day off with a friend. I don't really have any. I can't really call Alexander a friend, he's my boss. Besides, I see him all the time and I am sure the Dark Hunter could use a break from me, I'm sure I'm a handful. Looking Tetradore square in the eye I hold his gaze, making him aware that what he was accepting wasn't just something he could shy away from. Nope, if we're going to be friends then we're going to be good friends gosh darn it.

"If we're friends this means we're there for one another, no matter what. Got it? Good! Now, how would my new friend like to spend a glorious sunny day like today? Would you like to stay in here working on things or would you like to join me at a fun theme park?"

Sliding my hand under the covers I grab my phone from my pocket and turn the screen on. Searching for the theme park on the web, and finding it, I hand the phone over to him so he can scroll through the photos to see. You'd think all that whiskey that night would have made me forget something. Wrong. I remembered! He never rode on a roller coaster, which honestly, it's a horrible tragedy. As his new friend I determined this was my job to fix this egregious error.

"I wanted to do something fun, and since you're a friend now, I think it's okay for you to join me. You can eat nachos and funnel cakes and cotton candy! And we can finally get you to ride a roller coaster!"

Taking my hand I gently place it on his shoulder and shove him towards the opposite side of his bed, urging him to get up. Seeing him clearly not getting the picture, I lean over and grab one of the pillows and playful swat it at him. If gently pushing him to exit his bed wouldn't do the trick, perhaps hitting him with a pillow would!

"You can't say no to me! I'm your friend now, even though you didn't sound all too excited agreeing with being a friend to me, but that's okay! Go take a shower, and get dressed! I'll stay here until you're ready!"

Like I said, this bed feels really good, and being enveloped with his scent wasn't a bad thing either.
