    The East

    The east side of the city is often considered the heart of Sacrosanct. It's here were the majority of the shopping district can be found, deep in the heart of downtown. It's here that magic thrives, it hums in every stone and can be felt in every breath. Often times, new comers to the city may be come overwhelmed by such sensations but, eventually, it becomes an ever present feeling that's hardly noticed. The streets of the east side are frequented by all species as many companies are housed in the sky scrapers and hole in the wall establishments that line the streets.

    Cat's Meow

    An older brick building tucked downtown with only a neon sign above the steel door saying Cat's Meow and the drifting of music to let you know of the burlesque within. The inner confines have a lavish feeling of comfort and style. At one end of the building is a large stage for the dancers to entertain with small round tables scattered in front for the customers to sip or dine while watching. Directly across from the stage is a fully stocked bar so you’re never without a view of the entertainment.

    Downtown

    Downtown

    The city has a unique skyline, clashing between modern sky rises and small victorian storefronts. In the heart of downtown, the sleek colored glass buildings reign supreme though their old-world roots can be seen in the most peculiar places from the lamp post styled electric street light to the stone sidewalks. The old world architecture slowly returns the further from downtown you travel, however.

THE EVENING COMES70.49.13.16Posted On May 12, 2017 at 6:55 PM by AINE O'BRYNE

no matter how long the day,
the evening still comes
A
ine might be only 'human', but there is something to be said for the awareness that mortality gives you. She feels his stare like a caress against her skin before it seems to dip beneath the surface. Aine holds herself still under his quiet appraisal and does her best to feign ignorance. Eventually, his gaze shifts, for he must have found her wanting. A heavy sigh slips from her plush lips and its all she can do not to tilt her head and scowl at the mysterious stranger. His easy dismissal botherd her.
Probably a lot more than it should have. The idea that this man found her lacking in some way... Quickly, in an attempt to derail that thought, Aine takes a large sip of her drink and with more force than necessary sets it on the bar.

P
art of Aine is paying attention to the bartender and doing the polite, country thing and making small talk. The guy seems friendly enough, not too flirty, which is a nice change from the randy barkeeps she is accustomed to. The whole time they are chatting, the other part of her is wholly aware of the stranger. His presence is a living thing inside the bar, even his silence has weight. So, when he flags down the bartender, Aine takes the moment to scan the bar for other patrons. She had been so absorbed by him,
she couldn't even remember seeing anyone else. A few people are scattered around and she manages to catch the eye of a few, offering a friendly smile. She is just about facing the bar again when she feels the air around her change. Stiffening, Aine's breath catches in her throat at the first note of his voice. Whipping her head around her large eyes fix to his, with startled wonder. He was talking to her. Wasn't he?

A
ine doesn't know what to make of this new development and so for a moment she does nothing. Just gapes at him. In a cute, wonder struck way. Maybe. Or kinda pathetic. Take your pick. "Um. I...don;t think so?" She was so nervous she didn't really know what he was asking of her. Great. Now he likely thinks her a total ditz as well. She just knows her. Her mental self is banging its head against the bar for her sheer stupidity. Peeking through her lashes at him, Aine catches the shift in his gaze. She can sense a change in the atmosphere of the room, but has no clue what or who is causing it. Goosebumps rise along her limbs and a shiver traces her spine. She's not afraid. per say. More intrigued and now all the more curious of this dark stranger. She was working up to say or do something, when the bartender returns and the moment is broken. What she would have said or done is lost and Aine finds herself reeling.

P
erplexed, she watches his exchange with the bartender and feels, rather than sees the effect his smile has on the room. Lifting a trembling hand, she runs it through the long thick length of her hair. Giving herself a moment to get composed. When she finally does speak, its not the question she was expecting to leave her lips. "Who are you?" Its a simple question. An easy question. But somehow, that who, sounded an awful lot, like a what.
