    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.

Sebastian was gone again. Despite her child’s crush and her creation giving her a phone to keep in contact with him, she disliked his more frequent travels. It wasn’t too long ago that Sebastian had announced he was getting married which had thrown her for a loop. It was perhaps the only saving grace that he was marrying another male which for some reason didn’t compute as real in the child vampire’s mind. At least in his absence she was able to be herself once more. Pretending to not be the predator she was was hard work.

It had been a long time since Anna had visited her old stomping grounds at the park. The nights were getting darker sooner which should have meant more of a chance for a meal but with winter also came the cold which chased people back inside to the comfort of their homes. This fact had the petite French blonde pouting as she strolled the park path towards the playground.

Imagine her surprise then when she saw someone swinging on her swing-set. Anna remained outside of the circle of soft lights which cast a yellow hue over the playground, letting the shadows cloak her as she watched the stranger. This was no child but a full grown man attempting to test that theory of gravity with every passing swing. She was no stranger to that move as it was her favorite to reach as high as she could, feeling that brief moment at the precipice where the chains went slack and you felt suspended in the air before gravity took over and you came crashing back down.

It was a curious thing watching this man swing about like a child before leaping off in a flourish to dismount in that sand at the base. That show of vulnerability at the hiss through his teeth and clutch to his side had Anna step from the shadows and towards the swing-set. Her sapphire eyes regarded him with both curiosity and suspicion. “You’re in my spot.” Never mind the fact that there were two other swings available. The space that he occupied was normally the one she used and had to make that fact known.
