"Come on I got better things to do that listen to you, complain about your job"

0 · 532 views · located in Ademus

a character in “Ademus Love”, as played by ShyFox

Description

Image
Name: River Kreed
Age: Eighteen
Gender: Female
Sexual orientation Heterosexual
Appearance: A short girl only standing a little over 5'2. She has short choppy layered brown hair and light brown eyes. Her figure isn't really anything spectacular, appearing much younger than she actually is. River is aware of this and can sometimes be quite aggravating to her. Especially when searching for a job, most of the better paying electronics factories, don't want anyone younger than eighteen working for them out of fear of them messing something up. So she makes sure her personal data is on her mini modem to prove her age.

Clothing: River surprisingly has an affinity for skirts, but will wear pants and shorts as well, she really doesn't care about her style as long as she's comfortable in it. Her only exception of this if her job would require her to wear something, like her job at the Cyber Maid Cafe, she wears a maid costume, a blue wig, and blue contacts.

Likes: Computers, Programming, Tinkering with electronics
Dislikes: Being mistaken for a preteen, Being poor, Overly optimistic people

Occupation: She has just picked up a job as a sorter for Medical Mechanica, a company that specializes in medical electronics and components. She also works part time in the Cyber Maid Cafe, she hates this job and finds it degrading but it brings in extra money and the tips are good.(I realize I just came up with names you can have me change it if you like that's just what popped in my head. :3).



Cybernetics: Basic mini modem, she's in line to get a implant for a 'Sorter Arm"designed for sorters at work. These are typically required for all sorters so they are able to use their arm for longer periods of time without it wearing out. Not a permanent cybernetic arm, more of a glove with a link port connecting to the workers arm.

Skills: Programming but she's self taught, Electronic repair and upgrading once again self taught, Efficiency

Tick(s): River is pretty dull her life revolves around her job, and electronics, she is kind of a pessimist and people that very optimistic tend to get on her last nerve. But her nature to be kind of a workaholic, keeps her busy so her interactions with others are minimal... or at least she thinks it is.

Personality: As stated before River is anything but entertaining but that is just cause she is so focused on her goal of working and making money. However none of this is for a selfish nature, every credit she doesn't need to pay for her expenses is sent to her mother back in her home town. With four younger siblings, a widow mother, and a town on the verge of becoming a abandoned due to a fourth of the town being destroyed and lack of jobs, its easy to see why River is so focused on working. She is very loyal her family, and feels that because she is the oldest it is her responsibility to provide for them after her father's death in a factory explosion. The only time she really spends on herself, when she has an occasional day off she spends her time on a virtual online game called Gadget Word.

Background: River grew up in the small seaside town of Agatha a once bustling fishing town, and its biggest market flying boats. Schooling was never a big part of her childhood considering, most who lived in the town either became fisherman or went to work at the boat factory. River went through, you're typical schooling but it was never expected of her to continue on to anything else after secondary school.

Even though the town was a bit podunk they had most of the technology that you would find in Ademus. This is where, River got her love of electronics and programming. Through tinkering with her parents electronics and also trial and error. She got so good at it by the time she was in her early teens , people in her neighborhood were bringing their electronics to her for upgrading and routine maintenance.

Things seemed to be going pretty good, however this all changed when the factory that manufactured the boats, had an explosion that not only destroyed the factory, but took out a fourth of the town. Agatha was a shell of its former self, and the economy dropped drastically, many people left the town but some like River's family were too poor to leave. Her father had been a worker at the factory, and was killed immediately in the explosion, leaving his wife and five children behind. Her mother had worked as a seamstress, along with her father's wages from the factory the family had managed to get by. But with the income her father brought in now gone, and her former customers leaving town River had to do something. There was no work other than fishing, and with the destruction wrought on the city from the explosion it had done allot of damage not only to the town itself but also the environment, taking a hard toll on the fish population making it almost non existent. Most people only fished now to try to feed their starving families. So in a last ditch effort to save her family, River took what she had saved fixing electronics and went to where a job would almost be certain, Ademus.

It wasn't long after she got to the huge city that she had a job, but not exactly what she had planned to have. She started working at the Cyber Maid Cafe, she found it humiliating to dress up in a costume just to please perverted businessman but it was a regular paycheck that she could send home to her mother, she also managed to find an apartment in the 'Shipyard'. River did her best and worked hard at the cafe but she didn't stop looking for something that paid better and got her more hours.

When she applied to Medical Mechanica she thought she might be able to manage a job in there technical department working on programs, but because she had no formal education she had to settle for being a sorter. Still it paid better than the cafe, and she was able to work more hours, she now works both jobs even though it is tiring and she feels like she has no time for herself she feels it's worth it because her family needs the money she sends them when she gets paid. When she does manage to get some time off, she is usually tinkering with programming or the virtual online game 'Gadget World'. Her character in Gadget World name is Meredith, this is almost the only place she socializes, well recreationally. But this may change living in the Shipyard where so many people live that work in Ademus, maybe she already know some of them online in Gadget World and doesn't even know it.

So begins...

River had passed out the night before still wearing her maid outfit, waking up with her blue wig askew and the sting of having left the contacts in while sleeping. She hadn't even made it to the bed instead falling fast asleep on pillow pile in front of her TV. She didn't have room for a conventional couch so the pillows served their purpose. River pushed herself up with a reluctant grown, and looked down at herself. With a moan and growl she headed to the bathroom, a flush and then the sound of the shower going, she wasn't in there long when the alarm on her mini modem started going off letting her know she had to be at Medical Mechanica in a couple of hours. As much as she appreciated the better pay she got at the factory than she did being ogled by perverts in a maid outfit it being a sorter was boring as hell. Luckily she had the night off from the Cyber Maid Cafe tonight, so she could spend a night not being randomly groped on the rear.

Stepping out of the bathroom wrapped in a towel, River walked over to her small dresser and puled out her clothes for the day. It was her typical attire it was her skirt and zipper vest. She had been looking forward to getting sorter glove attachment for her mini modem. It had been over a month, and judging by the waiting list, it could be months or years before she got it. So much for enthusiasm, she pulled up the zipper of her vest and headed to the kitchen. She waved her hand over the sensor of the holopod sitting on the small kitchen counter. A three dimensional image of a news casters face appeared in a holographic beam from the pad. He started to babble on about the weather... like that was anything new it rains vast majority of the time in Ademus.

River sighed as she looked through the various cabinets in her kitchen, finally after searching she pulled a box of dehydrated meals. After choosing her 'poison', River tore away the foil packet revealing something that looked a kin to a hokey puck but a mishmash of colors. On her counter was a food rehydrator, something that kind of looks like a microwave, after pushing the number three on the control panel int started to make a noise that sounded as though someone was boiling water. After just a few seconds the rehydrator dinged, River reached in and pulled out a whole meal from the machine, and the sat at the small table in her living room to eat her meager, bland meal.

Just as the new's was ending another alarm sounded from River's mini modem telling her it was time to head to her job at Medical Mechanica. Grabbing her tram rail pass she glanced over at the picture of her mother and younger siblings sitting on an end table next to her door.

"Well guy's I'll see you when I get home... don't make a mess while I'm gone." and with that she made her way out the door.



For some other residents of the shipyard the day had began and hour before River had even thought of waking up. Darius and his sister Karmandy were getting ready for the day, they had managed to get by without Darius flipping out over the fact that Karmandy's shoes were each tied in opposite directions in stead of even and symmetrical on each side. Maybe it was the fact that the six year old just decided it would go more smoothly if she just tied the shoes herself as opposed to asking her brother to tie them for her. She sat at their small dining table nibbling on a piece of toast with a lovely fried egg perched on top of it, she watched her brother intently as he sat at his laptop scrolling through what his assigned duties would be at work today. He glanced up feeling her eyes on him.

"Is something wrong sis?" he asked looking over the top of his glasses.

"Are we going to be able to go to town this weekend... or are you going to do something else?" she asked before taking another bite of her breakfast.

Darius blinked a few times, pulled his hands from the keyboard and then pushed his glasses up he bridge of his nose.

"Well I don't see why not... when have I ever cancelled anything that I promised I would do with you?" he said wondering were the idea had come from.

Karmandy set her food down on the plate in front of her, "Well just other kids in my class always talk about their mommies and daddies changing the plans for the weekend and then they're stuck at home. I just wondered if you would do that too, they seemed to not believe me when I told them my big brother always takes me where I want to go. Some of them even got mad at me." she got a somewhat solemn look on her face as she stared down at her plate.

Darius, closed the lid of the laptop in front of him and gave a gentle smile at his sister. "Sometimes kids say things that they don't mean to be hurtful sis, I wouldn't worry about it too much. They'll forget what they were mad about and things will go back to the fun and learning. Besides, I'm not a mommy or a daddy." he gave a reassuring wink at her.

Karmandy smiled brightly at him, her spirits obviously lifted, "Yeah, I'm special cause I have the best big brother in the world!"

Darius couldn't help but smile, this little girl that he had cared for the the past couple of years was what made the world worth wild. After a quick clean up the pair was on on their way to the tram rail station, after Darius would get Karmandy to school he would head to his IT job at Medical Mechanica.

River was running on auto pilot as she sorted, before her was a wall of bins reaching almost to the ceiling of the warehouse. She and the other sorter all sat upon a motorized chair that drove on tracks between each bin, and they would use a small joy stick to move along the tracks going from bin to bin sorting the parts that would move on to the assembly line. Not much was said in fact most of the sorters were jacked into their mini-modem listening to music or catching up on their local sports team. However River didn't do that, she always lived in fear that if she wasn't paying complete attention to her work she would mess up and loose her job, something she couldn't afford to happen.

There was a guy that was several feet away who was in his seat drumming away in the air paying a little more attention to his music than his job. River shook her head, if that had been her she would have been fired already, just then several other sorter's to her right had moved close to each other and were chatting. She side glanced over at them as she sort of eaves dropped on their conversation.

"Are any of you going to get that new MOdUx update, it's only half a credit?", one asked.

"You guys are crazy, don't you know you can get in trouble for not using official Pear Corporation products.", said another.

"Oh please nothing's gonna happen, not like Pear Corporation has some elite police force out to arrest anyone that doesn't use their official products. Besides, their stuff is waaaay over priced and break really easily, I'll stick with MOdUx, may not be made by some huge business, but their app's and stuff are always half the price as Pear or any of the others." one said waiving away the other's concerns.

"HEY YOU SLACKERS GET BACK TO WORK OR YOU'RE GONNA FIND YOURSELF LOOKING FOR A NEW JOB, FORGET HALF CREDIT UPGRADES. WONT MEAN A DAMN THING IF YOU'RE NOT MAKING CREDITS!", yelled the supervisor from the warehouse floor.

The group quickly dispersed and got back to work, and River put her attention back on her own task trying to ignore the amateur air drummer next to her.



"Hey Darius can you take a look at this, my computer froze up again?", she asked.

Darius sighed this was the third time that day Ms. Trudy Carmichael had asked him for help, but not like he could say no to the head tech designer for Medical Mechanica. But you'd think she would be a little more computer savi and wouldn't need him to come bail her out every time she messed something up. Darius assumed she just kept getting into the zone of her creativity and didn't realize she just opened up too many things at once.

He stepped into the woman's office, she had to be at least five years older than Darius, maybe more. Her dark hair was pulled back into a tight bun at the base of her neck, she wore a skirt suit that in Darius' opinion was way shorter than it needed to be. She pushed her chair back as Darius came over to her desk and stood in front of the computer. He could feel her eyes staring at him behind his back, and here the clack as she drummed her manicured fingertips on the arm of her chair. He took hold of the mouse and started to go through the steps needed to unfreeze her computer.

"Sooo... Darius what do you do when you're not saving the world one computer at a time?", she said in an almost seductive tone of voice.

Darius tried to ignore the intonation in her voice and do his job, "Well I spend most of my free time with my little sister.", he spoke as his fingers skillfully moved over the keys on the keyboard.

"No... girlfriend?", Trudy reached out and brushed her finger tips across the back of Darius' neck.

This action made Darius' eyes go wide and he flinched at her touch. Now he realized that Trudy really wasn't having as many computer problems as she kept saying and was just trying to get him alone in her office.

"Well there you go.." he chose to ignore the touch and moved to the side of the desk to show that her computer was now running smoothly once again. She looked at him with a sort of aggravated glare, as he smiled nervously and rubbed the back of his neck. "Just like new Ms. Carmichael, well I really got to go I just got a message that I need to got to the third floor to accounting, seems their computer is spitting out number at random and adding them in to their totals and they don't know why."

Darius could tell by the look on her face that she didn't believe anything he was telling her, and rightfully so cause it was a load of BS. But he had to come up with something to get him out of such an uncomfortable situation, he quietly left her office as the door slid closed behind him he gave a deep sigh of relief as he went back to his own cubical.
