The sunset came quietly to Santificado. Darkness set in quickly over the sandy slums of Vatic. The lights of Sanctum’s nightlife mimicked a distant, electric sunset behind the wall that separated the two cities. If the silence of Vatic in the night were any indication, one would assume that the slums were a serene and peaceful place.

The Amethyst Club was Lucius’ pride and joy. A beautiful, black marble structure built in one of the most central areas of Sanctum, the capital city of the nation of Santificado. He spared no expense in the construction of this beautiful tourist attraction and favorite party spot of the locals.
How was she so lucky? Sure, she was beautiful, and sought after by many men, but how could this blonde bombshell have been so fortunate to land herself a guy like the infamous Lucius Tyrus Nox? He was tall, muscular, mysterious, and so damn handsome.
