    The South

    Although the southern parts of the city might not have the luxuries of the north or the down town vibe of the east, but these suburbs still have their own sort of charm. Here small neighborhood owned shops often run rampant, individuals often know each other by first name. The west is a quaint, quiet part of town. It's the sort of place where children can be seen playing safely on the sidewalks and clamoring in the park. On the weekends in the families often take to the beach to enjoy the warm waters that surround the city.

    What's You'll Find Here

    Hyde Park

    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

    The Outskirts

    Beyond the city limits and over the bridge lies the deep, dark, and almost impenetrable forest. Often times seen as a way to guard this magical city from 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.

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

It didn’t bother her at all that her friend was having an intimate relationship with another male. Society may frown upon that relationship, and in a way, society would have frowned upon her own relationship with her mate. Others believed that a man sleeping with a man was unnatural and uncalled for, a sinful action that would damn the soul for all eternity. Why should she judge Dorian and who he loved? Raven already knew what it felt like to be seen with such revulsion by others. Whether it was from the time she was a kid, or when was walking downtown with her mate, she had felt their harsh glares and did her best to ignore them. Within the Ark there was solace amongst her own. There was no one there that thought their relationship was not good. Society was cruel and so the she-wolf was willing to show the Fae King that not everybody would think his relationship with the man was wrong. Besides, a good friend was supposed to be supportive of their friend’s relationship, especially if it was clearly evident their friend was in a happy one.

The idea of possibly meeting his other half seemed like a very good idea. It wasn’t as if she and Tobias met many couples. She doubted if they were invited to accompany any other couple on some sort of ‘couple’s night’ they wouldn’t be wanted back a second time. As much as she loved her companion she was quite aware how...difficult it could be to appreciate someone like him. If he could not misjudge her mate just by her description of him then perhaps there was a real chance he could meet him. Sure the meeting could go good or bad, but she was willing to give it a chance. As for her mistrust in males surely the man Dorian loved wouldn’t treat her terribly. After all if he had the arm of a Fae King then he would certainly be an upstanding person. Although...people do hide behind a fake façades. Why Dorian wanted her to look at a photo she did not know. Puzzled she quietly watched as he pulled out his phone. Although this seemed a bit odd, she was assured she had never met this Sebastian before, after all she didn’t know anyone with that name. As blue-grey eyes shifted downwards to look at the screen of the phone, she smiled when she saw Dorian looking quite happy, but when she looked upon the one called ‘Sebastian’ she immediately went pale. Shaking she muttered softly growing nervous.

“I am afraid we have met before. I am your friend, therefore I am to always be honest to you as you are to be honest with me. Please do not be upset with me. I don’t know if you two were together at the time or not, but I...please let me explain.”

She remembered him. She remembered him quite well. He was the man that caused her to believe she had betrayed her mate. Raven was not the one that started it, or wanted it in the first place. No strange male had ever fancied her let alone actually pin her up against a tree. He was the first male to call her beautiful, a description that was never used to describe her. Although he was quite attractive to her, she didn’t want anything from him. The girl was absolutely happy with Tobias, glad to be his. Ever since that night she never thought about him, never worried about him. She told Tobias what happened, and he understood in his odd way that she was loyal only to him. Of course he wanted to harm the vampire, but she didn’t want him to die. Worried, she grabbed her fingers twisting and turning over them, in her typical nervous habit. How could she tell Dorian this? How could she explain to him what had happened. Troubled and worried she quivered in her chair. She was his friend, but was it her place to tell him? Raven had no idea if this was something the Fae King’s companion did while in a relationship with him, or if this was before they even met, but she needed to come clean and tell him. Quickly she mumbles afraid of hurting Dorian, afraid of the consequences that would come, and the poor girl was far too honest, knowing it was better to speak the truth than keep anything hidden.

“I...I don’t remember how, but I was walking in the woods at night. I was going to meet my mate. Next thing I know I’m pinned up against a tree. He is kissing me and I know it is wrong, because he is not mine, but I couldn’t stop him. I can’t explain it, but I didn’t have control. He called me beautiful and I remembered...I managed to wake up before he could go further with me, and bolted out of there.”

Mortified and ashamed she quickly look down at her hands, terrified to read whatever emotion was going through the Fae King. Was he furious with her? Was he feeling pain from revealing this side of his other half? She didn’t want to be responsible for his unhappiness. Perhaps this would be the last time she would see him, it would be a shame terribly. Raven was rather fond of him, glad to be a friend of his. Muttering she spoke up again hoping to understand why he would do such a thing in the first place.

“I understand he is a vampire, but...do you know why he would do that? My mate wasn’t happy about it, but he knows I am loyal to only him.”
