welcome to greythorne. a small town on the coast of british columbia, the nearest city a three and a half hour drive away. you would never find greythorne unless you were looking for it. and even then, it's quite difficult to find. and that's the way it's inhabitants like it. greythorne has a secret. well, a secret kept only to the outer world.

for years, greythorne has been known as a safe harbour. a safe harbour for those not accepted anywhere else. for those that others would call "monsters". witches. shapeshifters. lycans. vampires. anything and everything that isn't human. anyone whose true form would make the rest of the world scream in horror.

but not in greythorne. it seems that supernatural creatures of all sorts, of all backgrounds and natures, end up in greythorne at one time or another. some stay there their entire lives. others leave in search of another safe home, while others take their chances in the real world. but greythorne is a home for everyone. something about greythorne means that humans find it practically impossible to find it, and never stay for more than a night. there is a small handful of humans in the town, those who know the secrets and are either related to or in a relationship with some of the supernatural creatures that live there.

the secrets of the town are closely held and closely protected. anyone who risks exposing the secret will be, at best, exiled, or at worst, killed. it sounds drastic but for many, whitethorne is the only place they can survive, because their secrets are too visible to be hidden from the real world. they have no chance of survival. anything that threatens the safety of its residents will be dealt with and will be dealt with severely. and everyone knows that.

but there are some who know about this town who should not. some who are determined to burn this town to the ground and destroy every monster who walks the streets. these hunters have, for hundreds of years, kept their distance. but no longer. no more. a new leader has taken their helm and he fears no town. he fears no monster.

these hunters are human, but hunting often runs in the blood. they are fast and strong and possibly the only humans that may stand a chance against these creatures. they burn with a hatred and a fear that often burned in their families before them. and they are organising. and slowly, but surely, they march on greythorne.

greythorne is aware of this threat. or, at least, the elders are. but eager to avoid panic, they deign not to tell the common person. and so, everyone goes on with their day to day lives, able to feel the slowly growing sense of dread, but unable to identify its cause. but they all know. they all know something is coming. they all know. some just choose to ignore it.

plans had been in motion for months now. it had been discussed, time and time again, but it was only here, now, that anything was finally starting to happen about it. their scouts had finally found the town. stray, random scouts had found it over the years, but multiple scouts had found it. which finally meant that they could start moving. it was just a matter of time. greythorne had been found. greythorne would fall, and every monster that walked it's streets would be destroyed. it was just a matter of time. its residents didn't know it yet. but day by day, hour by hour, the hunters came ever closer.

There was a rare few hours of peace in Greythorne. As the sun peaked above the trees, still only starting to rise, and those who would rather avoid the sun slunk back indoors. The town was quiet for a few hours as people began to rise and began their day. At times like this, it was easy to forget the danger that awaited them. It was even easier for those who either didn't know or who didn't want to know.

Peace was something that Phoenix Woods hadn't known for a long time. It seemed that there was always something turbulent in his life, keeping his thoughts a constant wave of emotion. For months, his life had been the same thing. Every waking hour was spent working on the cafΓ©, making sure that he was too busy to think, too busy to hurt. More than once, he'd ended up painting or building or crafting recipes at 3AM when that awful, crushing loneliness kept him awake. Even when he'd opened for business, there had always been something to do. He'd questioned so many times if this had been the right decision. But he'd had to do something, he'd had to walk away.

His parents had rang him that morning to wish him luck. The conversation had gone about as well as he'd expected, which was to say they avoided the question of when they'd be coming back to Greythorne to see him and the cafΓ©, had told him how exhausted he had looked, and had boasted about how truly wonderful the French riviera was. He still had never quite forgiven them for just walking out. They'd had a bitter argument, one their relationship had never quite healed from. They made Phoenix feel as though it had been his fault they'd been "trapped" in that small town for so long. They told him on a Friday and were gone by Monday.

Phoenix sighed and leaned against the frame of the French doors, closing his eyes to soak in the sunlight for a brief moment. Today was the launch of the cafΓ©. Despite the fact that it had been open for six weeks already, things hadn't been finished, and he'd literally only just gotten enough money together to fund the party. It was no wonder he looked exhausted. He didn't think he'd slept more than five hours any night in the last six months. Even last night, he'd had to wake up at 4AM to start baking for the day. He couldn't remember what it was like to feel peaceful. Or even to have energy.

But he didn't have time to dwell on it. He sighed, pulled on his leather jacket, closed the doors behind him, and made the short walk to the cafΓ©. The smell of fresh paint was masked with the smell of fresh herbs and flowers, making him feel just a little more relaxed. Some of the staff were inside already, getting set up, and he just smiled and nodded at them, taking the first tray out of the oven. And the day began.

The sun had all but risen by the time most people in Greythorne had started to awaken, or as some had retreated to the confines of their homes, away from the sunlight. But for some, they had been awake for hours as the morning sun crest the treeline. It was this case for Jaiden, as she had already been awake busily taking care of her house, making sure everything was squared away. Not that she had slept much, or needed much sleep to function, as cafien was one of the things she relied heavily on to function, or even make it halfway through the day. Currently, she was cleaning up her room as Lumos and Nox had been messing around in her room earlier, and knocked something over. The cats made a high tail dart out of the room, the small main Koon which was Nox quickly followed behind the three-year-old, Lumos, as Jaiden stepped over them, "Lumos, I swear to god you're going to get in time out if you don't stop!" she yelled at the white cat as she heard them running around the house. A small chuckle creased her lips as she couldn't really be mad at her two cats, they were the two closest things she had to family and she would do anything for them in a heartbeat. After cleaning up the mess of knocked over books, she huffed as she left her room, making her way into the kitchen as she decided to try to find some sort of food to get for breakfast before she headed out. As she made her way to the fridge she felt something touch her foot, but just barely as it was a light, somewhat prickly feeling. A small grin formed on her face as she looked down, scooping up what had touched her foot, "Goodmorning, Melvin." she said with a smile as she gently pet his quils, resulting in a small chirp from the small creature, and she gently placed him down on the floor, but not before giving him one of his favorite treats, which was a slice of an apple.

She smiled as she watched the small hedgehog slowly bumble away as it carried the piece of fruit in his mouth, dragging it away. Jaiden sighed as she looked at her fridge, almost nothing, she'd need to go out and get more food as she was running low. But that would require her to leave the house, but as she thought about it, it wouldn't be that big of a deal as she could stop by the new coffee place as it was opening day, as well as being able to support one of her good friends, Pheonix Woods. He had been nice to her the moment they first met and had easily gotten along with their outgoing personalities, and with him always being the one to drag her out of the house, it was always nice to go and see him, and since it was the big day for his shop, she thought it was the least she could do for him.

With that set, she said goodbye to her fur-babies and walked out the door, but not before locking it behind her as she left. The weather was nice out today, not too cold and not too warm, perfect in her opinion really. From where she lived to where the main part of town would take about fifteen minutes of walking, as her natural aversion to cars made her get rather fit all too quickly as she refused to ever get into a car. She never had any traumatic event with them, she just never liked them as she thought it would be safer to walk instead of driving one of those "death machines", as well as it being all too expensive to get one, nevermind having to pay for the upkeep. Fifteen minutes seemed to pass by all too quickly as she made her way into town, and saw that the store had practically just opened when she got there, perfect. She was all too excited to see what Pheonix had done with the place and she was but all too happy to show him her support. The door opened with a small chime of a bell that hung right on top of the door, alerting the staff whenever someone would enter.

Jaiden smiled as she walked up to the counter, her wallet close by as it was in her jacket's pocket. She took in a deep breath as the smells overwhelmed her, but in the best way possible. Everything smelled amazing, from the food they made to the scent of fresh coffee. And since Pheonix was known to meddle with his magic when it came to cooking, she expected the same for his store. She smiled when she saw him, a large toothy grin on her face as she smiled, she could tell he was all too nervous and she didn't blame him. "So, Nix. How're you feeling? Excited? Nervous? All I know is that I'm excited for you and will be here for you every step of the way." she said with a smile as she took a seat at one of the chairs at the counter, all the while giving her friend a large smile.

Alex Garcia


There was nothing. Nothing but Alex, and a sense of dread. A smell. Metallic... Pennies? Blood. He spun, but could see nothing, nothing but darkness, not even his hand. It was quiet, he could practically hear his heart beating. Something else. The wind? Whispering? Crying? Who was crying? He touched his face. Is it me? Lightning flashed, and he saw a glimpse of a cross, taller than him. Taller than anything. Then nothing but dread. Dread. Dread. Dread. Dread. Dread. Dread. Dead.

Alex's eyes shot open, and he felt the cold sweat coating his face and chest, soaking his shirt and giving him a chill. He groped in the dark to find his glasses, so he could read the clock. 3 AM. Wonderful. He laid back into bed, willing the dream from his mind. He tossed and turned for a while, and eventually fell back into a deep, dreamless sleep. His alarm went off at 6, just like every morning, and just like every other morning, he started his day. He donned his glasses, pulled on his running shorts and changed his shirt before slogging down the stairs, yawns punctuating his movements. He went straight for the kitchen, pouring himself a glass of water and quickly finishing it, then pouring another to sip on as he made- and ate- his breakfast. After breakfast, it was back upstairs to brush his teeth, put in his contacts, and put on his running shoes. He took his time, there was no use in rushing. Before he left the house, Alex packed his fanny pack with the various things he foresaw needing; keys, cash, protection talismans, pocket knife, chalk, gum, eyeliner pencil, his phone, and a pen. One can never be too prepared.

Alex and his grandmother didn't live far from town, the walk only took a few minutes. The route of Alex's morning runs was less direct, and typically took him about 30-45 minutes to complete, depending on his pace and the weather. He loved mornings, while the world was still shaking itself from sleep. It was peaceful, and gave him time to collect his thoughts. He took a few minutes to stretch, and was on his way. Alex didn't listen to music while he ran, he liked to be able to hear if someone was approaching. He also liked the sounds of nature, and being up before most people were off to work made that easier. He didn't typically encounter too many people on his runs, not that he would stop and chat if he did, but a smile and a quick wave were a typical greeting.

Today's run wasn't record-breaking by any means, it was nice and easy, but it was a good run. Alex stopped in front of Phoenix's cafe, though he'd already been several times, today was a launch party of sorts and Alex wanted to support his friend.

He entered the building, and walked to the counter, digging through his pack as he waited for Phoenix to have a spare moment, he didn't want to interrupt. When Phoenix had a moment, Alex smiled, almost as if to assure his friend, "You did it. Abuela's really proud of you, by the way. I think she's planning on stopping by later today." He paused for a moment, "Also, I have something for you. Don't make a big deal out of it, it's nothing big." He held out a small adder stone, tied to a length of suspiciously red cord, "To help keep negative energies at bay."

He turned to Jaiden, wishing for a moment that he looked a bit more put-together, but still offered the most charming smile he could muster, and said, "Good morning." It was more so he didn't feel like he was ignoring her, but he continued, "You look good," he paused, quickly looking at her more closely, "cool jacket." He winked, more lighthearted than anything, and took a seat of his own.

ImageAurora was always up just before the sun rose in Greythorne, she often thought of it as when the sun awoke - she awoke. Still that didn't made her bed any less comfortable this morning as she allowed herself a little extra to relax under the covers in her bedroom. Aurora was thankful enough to live in a tiny loft right above her shop. Her routine had been the same for a few months now and to most the familiarity would be comforting but to her it was boring. Wake up, ten minutes of yoga, smoothie time (arguably her favorite), feed Pip and Pym her scarlet and blue macaws, get ready and then open shop. However, she wouldn't give it up for anything. Aurora loved her life in Greythorne. The quirky, yet charming town had picked up her broken pieces and put her back together again. For once since her family's death she had felt whole again. Mainly due to her adoptive family who lived just a few blocks away from her, but running her flower shop had also given her a purpose.

Thankfully this morning she had something to look forward to. Phoenix, one of the witches in town, was opening his brand new cafΓ© and as a fellow business owner and friend she wouldn't miss it for the world. Not to mention he had kindly brought by some pastries and sweets for her to try and she was in love. Aurora had spent the whole week preparing a beautiful arrangement of succulents and flowers for his cafΓ© as a 'housewarming' gift.

She loaded the arrangements on to on of her carts, she'd be lying if she told herself she didn't go a tad bit overboard but it was Aurora we were talking about. The shop was only a few blocks down so after loading up all the flowers she made sure to change out of her ridiculous daisy pajamas into something more casual and cute. Aurora got a few odd looks as she pushed the floral cart down the sidewalk - the cart was practically bigger than herself - but she didn't mind, the fae was practically immune to odd looks or remarks.

Aurora was all smiles as she finally made it to the quaint cafe, using her back to open the door pulling the cart inside. It was a beautiful and cozy establishment and a small part of her swelled with pride, he had done such a wonderful job. Not to mention the smell, it would attract fairies for miles. She was happy to see Jaiden and Alex were already there, flashing a small wave and smile in Jaiden's direction, and made her way over to where Phoenix was. The two weren't best friends by any means, but anyone that practically lived in Greythorne was a friend to Aurora. She knew her sporadic fae nature was a turn off for most, but it simply made her - well her. "Phoenix it looks amazing! And oh my I could smell the tarts from down the block" She giggled slightly tucking a dark strand of hair behind her ear. "I hope you don't mind but I brought in some flowers to help. If- if it's too much I totally understand. I definitely went a little overboard with the petunias..." Aurora gestured to the cart near the door filled to the brim with dainty pastel flowers and modern succulents. She turned slightly to Alex, and couldn't help the smile that lit up her face. "That reminds me, I have that order of Gardenias ready that your Abuela called about a few days ago".

Phoenix had just reappeared behind the counter to fill one of the displays when Jaiden walked in. Phoenix grinned a little bashfully as he saw the huge grin on her face. They'd been friends for as long as Phoenix could remember, and it felt like their friendship had never really changed, despite everything they'd gone through. If anything, they'd become closer. "Between you and me? I'm so exhausted I've forgotten what most other emotions feel like," he said with a laugh. "No, I'm... excited. I needed a fresh start," he admitted, continuing to fill up the stand. "My parents are very supportive, by which I mean they actually admitted that they'll try and arrange a visit. At some point. If they can, you know, squeeze me in." He said with an eye roll as he leaned on the counter. Somebody appeared then to order a takeaway coffee, and Phoenix straightened up as he started to prepare it. He handed it to the gentleman with a grin and a free cookie.

He caught Alex's eye and grinned, making his way over to him. He blushed a little as Alex complimented his work and said that his abuela was proud and that she'd be in later. The protection talisman stunned him for a moment. "Thank you, Alex. Hopefully we won't need it," he said, tying it above the coffee machine. The arrival of a ginormous cart of flowers, and its wielder, made Alex's grin widen.

"Aurora! Oh my god, these are amazing! I love them!" The slightly overboard floral displays mightn't have quite fitted in with the vaguely understated style Phoenix had gone for, but he didn't care. Plants always had a place in his home, in his heart. "Thank you so much!"

"So, come on, what can I get you guys? It's all good, I promise. And you'd better agree with me because I was up at 4AM prepping the dough for those croissants," he laughed.

The sun rising over the trees was usually a sign for Evelyn to disappear inside. But today, not so much. She’d been hunting most of the night, but she’d heard rumors. And not good ones. Rumors of hunters, those seeking to destroy those like her. She wasn’t totally sure why she wanted to seek them out. But Maika had told her how much he knew about them, and if anyone could give her information... it would be them.

So she plastered what little exposed skin she had in the strongest sunblock she could find, and began her search of the woods. She had become accustomed to a peace she usually only associated with the dead of night. She had always been extroverted in her human life, but she’d learned as quickly to enjoy the silence, the peace of the night and the woods.

It also made her hyper aware of sounds, waiting for a crackle or a heavy footstep. She was so used to hunting, to having to be silent, that her own footsteps barely made a sound on the ground. She’d learned to tell an animal footstep from a human footstep for fear that she wouldn’t attack an innocent human. So when she heard that distinctive weight, she crept, ever slower, until she could see them.

She didn’t recognize them. They seemed to be striding with a certain certainty that made her think they couldn’t be up to anything good. She stepped from the trees to where the two men could see her, and beamed at them. They stopped on their tracks.

β€œHello, gentlemen,” she beamed. β€œCan I help you with anything?”
β€œI... we...” one of them said. The other glared at him.
β€œNo, thank you, darlin’,” the other said.
β€œWhat are you two fine gentlemen doing out here so early in the day?” She asked, keeping a smile on her face.
β€œDon’t suppose you know the way to Greythorne?” The first asked. Evelyn frowned.
β€œAnd why would you want to go there?” She asked playfully. Then her expression dropped. β€œYou two wouldn’t be... hunters, would you?” She asked. They looked at her for a fraction of a moment, before attacking. They didn’t stand a chance against Evelyn, who had one of them unconscious in a matter of seconds and the other pinned against a tree.
β€œTell me what you know,” she demanded. He just grinned. β€œYou’re all going to burn, monster. You’re all going to go back to the hell you came from. He clawed at her neck, exposing a sliver of skin, right where the sun poked through the trees. She screamed in pain, dropping him, and he was gone. She didn’t give chase, instead scrambling to cover herself up again. She frowned as she stole back into the depths of shade. These weren’t like Maika. These were something different. Something that, despite her self-hatred, worried her.

Jaiden smiled when Phoenix finally had the time to talk to her as he was clearly busy, she couldn't help but grin slightly as he admitted while he was excited, he was also nervous and incredibly tired. That was evident from the slight bags under his eyes and slight differences in how he acted, subtle things she was able to pick up about him. She was worried about him, but she knew he was able to take care of himself and if he needed anything he would ask. "Well, look at it this way. You're finally living your dream and being able to do what you've wanted for years, and I couldn't be any happier for you, Nix. Just don't overwork yourself and take your time. You're the boss man here, and even you need a break every now and then." she said with a reassuring smile, even though she wasn't one to talk as she barely slept and was always busy with her own things, especially being someone that worked from home and most people. But that wasn't the time for that, she was here for him and that's all that mattered.

Her attention was taken away from Phoenix as someone else sat down next to her at the counter, it was another resident that she knew somewhat, wouldn't say they were the best of friends, but they were nice enough to each other, all considering they were both Witches, as was Phoenix, which was something that was kind of a bond for the three of them. She smiled and gave him a small smile as he said good morning, "Mornin', Alex." she said with as friendly as a tone as she could muster.

A small chuckle came from her when he complimented how she looked, and that he liked her jacket, giving a small flirtatious smile and wink after he spoke. "Heh, thanks, Alex. And I like your uhm....Fanny pack." she tried to hold back a chuckle after she said that, but it was all too funny of a thing for her to take seriously, and she hoped Alex wouldn't have gotten offended by the small joke she made. All but too quickly her attention was taken aback by a small chime from the door as someone else entered the cafe, as she turned her head a large smile overcame her as she waved at the person that entered. It was one of the few people that she considered a very good friend aside from Phoenix. They had their differences, but with how nice and welcoming Aurora always was, it was always pleasant to see her, especially since most if not all of the plants Jaiden had in her house came from her shop. "Morning, Rory!" she happily exclaimed as she gave the fae a large smile and wave, looking back at the others as they all talked about the grand opening of his shop, and how she brought all the flowers for the store and that she too had an order in for Alex's grandmother.

She smiled as all of her friends were here, looking back as Phoenix asked what they'd be having and that he was sure they were going to love everything his store had to offer. "Surprise me, Nix. I know you won't disappoint." she said with a toothy grin and small chuckle as she gave him a bit of a teasing tone.

The morning sun had all but come up and cast its glow over Greythrone, meaning most were getting up as others were retreating to their homes. And much couldn't have been truer for one of the individuals in the outer forest of the small town.
The past night had been an all but overly stressful night for one named Markus as he had one of his transformations again, being nothing but a slave to the moon, which would be his master until the time he died, which would result in his freedom of what he considered a curse. Or, if there was a cure, which he heard whispers about, but he doubted they were true.

He was now making his way back to his small house that was tucked far away from the town, away from most people, and most of the drama that followed it. It was also a way of him making sure everyone was safe and far away from his uncontrollable anger and violence whenever the moon would be at its fullest, and most controlling form. He had just finished feeding on the corpse of a very large, and well-maintained buck that had gotten jumped out of nowhere, and had been giving the most merciful death he could give the creature, simply snapping its neck between his strong jaw when he was in his wolf form. He had small crevices where he would put extra clothing after a transformation where he had a certain area for where he would hunt as a wolf, while he was in the mindset of a beast, he wasn't fully deranged, but under relative control. He had gotten dressed into one of his most preferred styles of outfits and slowly walked back to his home, but stopped as the thick hairs on the back of his neck bristled, something didn't feel right, as if he wasn't entirely alone in these woods.

Markus remained still as he listened for any movement or scents he didn't recognize, it was when he picked up the scent of three others that his attention was grabbed. Snapping his neck to the north of him he began to move more slowly, and carefully as he proceeded to follow the smell he picked up. Shortly thereafter he found an unconscious man lying in a clearing, with no one else around. At least that's how it appeared to any mortal being. He still was able to pick up the feeling of someone else being there, a somewhat familiar presence. He stepped closer to the body that lay on the ground, it was a hunter for sure, as they had the mark on their neck covered by their shirt collar. He growled to himself as he knew it was true, people were coming, and they weren't bringing anything good with them.

Slowly Markus rose back to his feet as his back was turned, he craned his neck to the side as he took in the scent one more time, making sure he was entirely sure of who it was. He had only seen her a few times, but her scent was recognizable. It was the smell of a vampire, one he had a few encounters with, but not many as she was new to the town. He kept his back towards her as he spoke, "You can come out you know, no one's going to hurt you, Evelyn. At least I won't. Maybe the sun will though, you need to be more careful." he said with a calm, and deep voice. It was true, he wasn't going to hurt her, he had no reason to unless she proved herself as a threat, but with the sign of two hunters now in their woods, in search of the small town, he began to worry. With the smell of burnt flesh, he could tell she was in one way or another injured from the encounter, most likely being exposed to the sunlight that came through the trees. He removed his jacket and extended it out to her hiding place, if she wanted to stay out of the sun she'd need to be under more layers until she got home.

Alex shrugged at Phoenix's words of thanks, hoping he wouldn't need the stone. Alex was sure he did, he just had a feeling that something was very wrong, or would be soon. He had to do anything he could to keep the people in his life safe. But then, she did it. Jaiden pointed out the fanny pack. Dammit, he should've worn something different. Maybe skipped his run this morning. That would've thrown off his whole day. Calm down, Alex, it's not that big of a deal. Should he say something? Shrug it off? I'm overthinking this. He chuckled, though it came out sounding more than a little fake, "It's a look." He shrugged, and flashed a charming smile at her, "No pockets."

Alex heard the door open, and didn't think a thing of it, but Aurora's voice was all too familiar. Suddenly, Alex found himself really wishing he looked more put-together. Still, he listened attentively when she addressed him, the hint of a smile playing on his lips. He honestly knew nothing about the flowers, nor did he particularly care, but he nodded like that was the most interesting piece of news he'd received in weeks. "Thank you," he said, a bright smile lighting his face, "She'll be happy to hear that, I'll let her know." He shrugged, "Normally I'd say that I'd stop by myself and bring them home for her, but I don't know I'll be able to do that, today."

Alex looked back to Phoenix, who wanted his order. He thought for a minute, and shrugged, he didn't want anything heavy, he wasn't particularly hungry. Normally, he'd just go for coffee, but this was Phoenix's big day, "How about you let me be the judge of that croissant dough?" He shot a quick wink Phoenix's way, "And some coffee?"

Image"Really? Oh, I'm so glad!" Aurora placed a hand over her chest, a large grin on her face. "Of course. I also may or may not have enchanted them just a teeny tiny bit. Just so you wouldn't have to water them the first few weeks. I figured you'd have your hands full already". She then dropped her voice low in a serious manner but couldn't help the curve of a smile on her lips, "If it starts getting 'Little Shop of Horrors' in here call me".

Aurora nodded at Alex's response, bouncing slightly on her heels. "That's alright. I could always just drop them by later on this week, it's no rush". Her attention was then stolen again by Jaiden's warm welcome.

She turned to the witch all smiles, walking over to the table where she sat. "Hey stranger. How are the cats? Oh and of course I cannot forget about Melvin." She adored that darn little hedgehog. Whenever Jaiden ordered flowers Aurora made it her mission to hand deliver them each time. It was mainly an excuse to see Jaiden's adorable fur family. "Let me know if those Hellebore's ever need some revamping" She giggled wiggling her fingers to suggest that somehow the fae had some sort of pixie dust up her sleeve. Jaiden's Hellebores were the first flowers Aurora had ever grew that were black. It was definitely a switch from her normal pink and rosy palette but she enjoyed the challenge. Not to mention they turned out beautifully.

Aurora turned her head as Phoenix spoke of getting them something to eat, not realizing how hungry she actually was. Rory had been so busy making sure she had everything ready to go for Phoenix that she skipped her usual green tea with yoga. She grinned at Phoenix, "Anything strawberry and you know you'll have my vote".

Phoenix nodded and grinned as Jaiden requested a surprise, already forming an order for her in his mind. Alex asked for a croissant, and Aurora said anything strawberry. "Alright, coming right up." Despite how early it was, there seemed to be a steady trickle of people in already. Spotting that one of the trays of samples he had dotted around the cafe was a little bit low, he grabbed some cookies and headed down to refill it. As he did so, he overheard a conversation, one that made him frown a little. Apparently people had been spotting hunters around the town. Or, at least, strangers that were either hunters or looked scarily similar to them. But because they hadn't been witnessed actually attacking anyone yet, the townspeople couldn't turn on them. Not until they had proof.

Phoenix went back up to the counter and finished his order, turning around and presenting them. "So, salted caramel latte and a jelly bean cookie for Jaiden, americano and almond croissant for Alex, and a strawberry green tea and a strawberry muffin for Aurora," he said. He scanned the cafΓ©, half making sure that there was nobody looking for his attention and half making sure that there wasn't anybody who could possibly be a hunter. But it was a sea of half-familiar faces, people who he recognised if only in passing.

"Did you guys hear about all these mysterious strangers apparently appearing around the town? Most people think they're hunters. I'm just wondering if the promise of my amazing jelly bean cookies finally lured the humans to town," he joked. There had been talk of hunters coming to Greythorne for as long as Phoenix could remember. Sometimes, there genuinely was a threat. Other times, someone had just gotten really lost and had decided to stay around for a while. He didn't know if he believed they were hunters or not. Frankly, he preferred the ignorant bliss of hoping they weren't.
