    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.

Anna-Marie was entirely sure that the baby within Amelia’s rounded stomach was dead because something without a heartbeat surely wasn’t alive. However, Amelia seemed to fully believe the opposite. Perhaps she was in denial? The thought process of a mother always seemed peculiar to her. When they would give their lives to Anna if only to spare their child. The petite blond quirked her head slightly in curiosity even as she decided not to debate the fact with Amelia.

The French girl was only too happy to show off what she had been practicing instead. What child didn’t like an audience to show off to? A broad grin crossed her features, happily crossing the distance to Amelia and taking her hand to pull her to the forest line. “I’ll show you! It’s fun!” She tugged on Amelia’s hand only briefly to get her moving before releasing her. Anna skipped the few feet then planted herself firmly.

Anna fell quiet as she concentrated on the shadows. It was still a new power and took a lot of concentration on her part seeing as she wasn’t quite sure how it worked. At first there was only stillness before the shadows themselves began to thicken and churn along the earth in front of them. Slowly at first then growing in speed and size, molding itself into a figure the size of Amelia. This figure though was not of a person but a monster. There was no real body to speak of, only a thickened column of shadow raised from the earth that curled forward where the imp head was formed with lanky, long fingered, and longer taloned arms at it’s side.

“Look, look, I did it!” Anna broke her silence in absolute delight. Her gaze turned away from the creature she had created to look expectantly at Amelia with a proud grin now on her face.
