    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.

It was a beautiful fall day, one that Emmy was determined to enjoy. It had seemed like for the last few months, she had been held up in her apartment, feeling sorry for her life. She had tried to find Alex’s family, to let them know that she had been responsible for his death, but she hadn’t been able to locate them. The longer she looked for them, the more she began to believe that they weren’t actually here at all. Perhaps she wasn’t meant to tell his family that she had been responsible for his death.

This week, she had taken a break from her search, having gotten discouraged that she hadn’t been making any progress at all. So instead of looking for her deceased boyfriend’s family, she had spent it trying to figure out how to control her unique gift – the same gift that had gotten her kicked out of her family.

You see, Emmy has the ability to control the weather. Where she grew up, supernatural beings were persecuted for what they were and her family all but abandoned her. But Alex had taken her in, showed her what it was like to be loved and cared for. He had even helped her start to make sense of her abilities. But it was her abilities that had caused his untimely death. It had been an accident. The tornado that tore through their home hadn’t been created on purpose. Emmy couldn’t control it and so she fell victim to it...she was at her own creation’s mercy. If she had been able to control herself, perhaps she could have saved Alex.

But the past was the past and she was trying now to allow the same mistake to happen twice. So she practiced. Today, the afternoon was a quiet one and the park was relatively empty. She had been trying to summon storms only to bring back the sunshine. She was getting better, but she still was not perfect at it. But something caught her attention, the loud clashing of metal hitting pavement. It startled Emmy, causing a bolt of lightning to crash down near her body.

Once she was assured that nothing life threatening was happening, she felt her breathing return to normal. Eyes rested on the young woman who had taken a tumble. Quickly, she jogged over to the woman, offering her hand to ease her to her feet. “Are you alright?” She hoped it wasn’t her practicing that had caused the girl’s tumble. Already too much had happened due to her abilities. She couldn’t take it any more.
