Dialogue Color: #ff2929 || Location: Ruby's Cafe/Diner

ImageRuby stood behind the counter of her cafe early in the morning waiting for her new employee, Gretel Fischer to arrive. Around this time everyone in town was beginning to wake up but as for Ruby, she always seemed to find herself awakening at the crack of dawn. It was something she never seemed able to understand.

The air was slightly chilled from the light fog that was beginning to lift itself from the ground and dissipate into the air as the sun rose higher into the sky. It was cold enough to send slight shivers throughout your body but not bad enough that you needed to cover yourself. This was the kind of weather Ruby always loved. Not too hot, not too cold. But of course she knew it was going to warm up in the afternoon, it was summer after all. She was just glad that summer was going to be coming to an end soon.

Ruby finally got everything in the diner ready for the day and she stepped into the kitchen and began cooking up her father's breakfast. He always asked for the same thing, sausage, eggs, biscuit, and even a waffle or pancake, depending on what his mood is like when he wakes up. She loves helping out her father, but she just wished he would return to himself so she wouldn't have to be waiting on him like this every morning, he would just be able to come to the diner when he wanted to. But either way, she knew she shouldn't complain. He would do the same thing for her, well, she hoped he would anyway.

Just as she finished cooking her father's food, she wrote and note and placed it on the counter in the diner just in case Gretel got there before she returned from bringing her father his wanted breakfast. The note read: Gretel, I will return soon until then keep the front door locked and feel free to get yourself a drink and what not. When I return I will start you on your training, won't take long.

Ruby walked the ten minutes back to her home, the big house in the middle of Crimson Grove, her father was the mayor. She stepped inside and made her way up the stairs pass her room, Belle's room; she seemed to still be sleeping, and finally arrived to her father's room. Ruby knocked on the door a couple times before opening it up and speaking, "I have your breakfast," she stated as she set it down on the small table in his room. "I need to return to the diner, I'm training a new girl today. If you need anything have Belle get in touch with me. I love you Pa," she stated before turning on her heels and beginning on her way back to the diner.
Image
As Ruby walked through the empty streets, it seemed as if things were starting to pick up for the day's busy schedules most people had. She just hoped she wouldn't run into Flynn Ryder any time today. The past couple of days he has been trying to take things from her, but of course she was always able to sense him coming close to her without even being within four feet from her. That was always one of the things she enjoyed about being a wolf. But no matter how much she enjoyed the good parts, the bad parts were nothing she would want to put up with.

Just thinking about what she is capable of, the things she has done just makes her sick to her stomach. The brunette finally reached the door to the diner and she stepped in, opening the diner for business. She slid the hood off her head, though she kept the red, silk cloth draped around her body. This was the last thing she had from her grandmother and it was so much more important than some sort of remembrance item. She just hoped nobody would find out.

"Gretel, are you here?" she called out to the empty diner, hoping that she would come across her somewhere in the building.

Dialogue Color: #003366 || Location: Park

ImageThe previous night was filled with nothing more than scheming and acting on those schemes. Flynn and Gold hadn't gotten any sleep the night before because of the long and exhausting job they just finished. They crossed the lake to the opposite side and raided the witch's cottage for numerous different items. A couple times they had to hide and wait out the witch's presence before entering the cottage again and getting back to work. Needless to say, it was well worth it.

Between the two of them, the items they picked up were worth a couple hundred dollars all together, they were now on their way to the pawn shop. He smiled as he glanced over at Gold, "I didn't think we were going to get off this easily. Especially since that woman claims to know her surroundings she clearly hadn't realized we were around," he stated to his best friend and partner in crime.

Just as they reached town again, his stomach began to growl. "After taking this to the pawn shop, wanna hit up Ruby's Cafe? I'm starved," he added as they continued through the park. The pawn shop was just across the street from it, it wouldn't take much longer to arrive. Though the park did have a good stretch of land to cross first.
Image
Flynn knew that the first thing he was most likely going to do when he finally gets home is pass out in the first place he sits down at. He was tired. This is the first time in a long time that he has been this tired. But at least he had fun, that's all that really mattered to him. And in the end he'll be getting some money for his fun.

Flynn couldn't wait to get out of public so he would be able to talk to Gold about a new target that had come into town just recently. If he remembered correctly, the woman's name was Elsa. He sighed as she slid his hands into his pockets.

"I didn't think we were going to get off this easily. Especially since that woman claims to know her surroundings, she clearly hadn't realized we were around," Flynn boasted to Gold.
"I know right! I thought she was definitely going to find us, especially when I was hiding under the stairs and the floorboards creaked under my weight." Gold laughed excitedly, her adrenaline levels still high. "That old shrew was blind as a bat!"

Gold and Flynn had been up all night. They had gone across the lake to where an old witch lived in this tiny cottage. The stuff that they had looted was going to be easily a couple hundred dollars. In Gold's opinion this was the best part of the robbery; right after when you go back and relive it. You get to remember all the horrifying adrenaline educing moments, without actually any risk. Gold knew she would pay for her lack of sleep later, but right no she was too riled up from the robbery to be tired, she was literally buzzing.

"After taking this to the pawn shop, wanna hit up Ruby's Cafe? I'm starved," Flynn asked. Gold was suddenly famished. It always happens that way, one minute Gold's not hungry, then the moment someone mentions food she's starving. Plus Gold may not like Ruby all that much, but the food she served at her cafe was top notch.

"Definitely. My stomach needs some food, and my head needs some coffee." Gold was hungry, but she also knew food would settle her after their big robbery.

The pair finished walking through the park and were almost at the pawn shop. Gold couldn't wait to off load their stolen goods and get some cash in her pocket. Though guy at the pawn shop had proven to be a bit of a nightmare to work with. He would consistently refuse to pay them a fair value for their stuff.

"I swear to god Flynn if this guy messes us around this time, I'm going to explode. I am not in the mood." Gold said defiantly, as she threw open the door to the pawn shop, and strolled on in like she owned the place.

"Hey, we're closed!" Called out the shop owner without looking up. He was lounging in an old beach chair flipping through some old magazine. He was wearing an old Hawaiian shirt that looked like he had been wearing it for weeks straight, adorned with several food stains.

"It's just us," Gold called back as she and Flynn walked up to him, keen to get this over with and head to Ruby's. "We've got some stuff for you to take a look at." Gold motioned to Flynn who was carrying their loot.

Location: The Woods/Diner




Image
Antonio was up earlier than the whole town, it was a slight routine for him. He'd get up real early most days since he got here during dawn when the sky was just being painted pink and purple by the rising sun and run for a couple of hours. The running seemed to calm the wolf in him so if anything happened during the day that made him upset he could easily control the wolf. It also worked as a stress reliever and somewhere where he could think. He was really grateful for Elsa letting him, his sister and Rapunzel crash there and so he was going to do whatever he could to help her out.

The spot of choice today was the woods where he felt more at home than anything. The sound of twigs breaking under his feet echoed throughout the quiet woods where birds could be heard chirping in the distance. His breath was even, calm almost which would be surprising to any human because any human would have been struggling to keep their breath even at the speed he was going. His feet skillfully knew where to step while he used his hands to help him leap over any fallen logs or obstacles in his way. Running was the only time Andy ever felt truly free and it was amazing, the wind in his hair and hitting his bare chest, honestly this guy never runs without his shirt off and if you asked him why he'd just say it was restricting.

By the time Andy decided to finish his little morning run the sky was in full light and the sun hung above him. Reaching up to shield his eyes from the low glow of the sun he stared at it with a fond smile before the sudden growl of his stomach snapped him back to reality. He quickly patted down his pants then smiled when he found his wallet. He opened it and flipped thorough a couple of bills before smirking. "Yes! Food money." he blurted out in a rather cheery tone.

Pocketing his wallet, Antonio nodded to himself as he mentally confirmed that he was off to the diner and with that he began to jog out of the woods. It only took a couple of minutes before he was out and deiced to take a short cup and sprint through the park. Now he wasn't trying to show off or anything, honestly he just likes parkour so while his little sprint through the park he hopped over a bench with an old lady sitting on one side. He seemed to startle her, "Oh, sorry miss!" he managed to say while stopping momentarily before resuming his run which he scared off some feeding birds in the process.

With the diner in sight Andy slowed his run once more to a jog. Opening the door, he walked in panting low, his chest rising and falling. He walked over to a booth and decided to catch his breathe before attempting to order food or not it would sound something like this. F-Food, insert panting here, a-and water, before I die. Now he wasn't that exhausted but he wasn't going to take the chance of sounding like and idiot. Spotting Ruby and Gretel he instantly perked up and waved at them. "Morning ladies!" he managed to flash her one of his genuine smiles.

ImageFlynn always enjoyed the aftermath of doing one of their little jobs. The adrenaline always made it fun, but once the job is completed they always talked about the things they did that almost caught them caught, etc. It was one of his favorite parts of his line of work. Of course everyone else in town wouldn't call it work, but it honestly was to him. If these people didn't want things stolen from them, then they shouldn't be boasting about all of their valuables. He's got to hear about these things from somewhere or he wouldn't even know what these people owned.

"I swear to god Flynn if this guy messes us around this time, I'm going to explode. I am not in the mood." Flynn heard Gold state as she swung open the pawn shop door. "I completely agree!" he replied just as he was hearing the old man's voice, one that he knows all too well.

The moment the man knew who was inside his shop, he pulled the items out of his pockets and laid them down on top of the counter. There were a couple of golden trinkets and a couple gemstones. "These items are at least worth a couple hundred each," Flynn stated as the pawn shop owner began looking them over. Flynn could tell when he hated when someone else was right and the man knew that he had to give an honest price for these items or Gold would blow up at him...again.

The man nodded his head in agreement, "You're right. I'll give you $800 for the lot," he stated as he pulled the money out of the register and handed it over to them. "Thanks," he stated as he took the money and immediately began to drag Gold out of the pawn shop. "I know what you're thinking, we could have gotten more for it but this is good enough. Here," he said as he handed Gold her half, $400.
Image
"Let's go get some food," he stated as he slid his money into his pocket and started on his way to the diner. "Come on Gold, if you must you can yell at the man later. Right now we need to eat something," he stated before continuing on his way to the diner.

Upon entering, he immediately spotted a new person inside. He peered over at him before whispering over to Gold, "Got a new person. We need to keep an ear out to see if he has anything of value on him," he whispered before sitting himself down at one of the empty booths.

Trixie studied the menu in front of her as Ruby asked what she wanted. She knew she was going to have pancakes, but with what topping? She'd decided on berries and syrup and was about to answer Ruby when a newcomer entered the diner. Tink looked up, studying him as he took a seat a few stools down. Despite the fact that she was pretty sure she'd never seen him before in her life, there was something vaguely familiar about him. Was he famous? No, that wasn't it. She shook her head and looked back at Ruby.

"Can I have pancakes with berries and syrup please, Ruby?" She asked, putting the menu back. "And do you still have that berry tea? If you don't, I'll just have normal tea," she added. The berries reminded her of Neverland, and she liked that. It was a taste of home. She didn't get homesick- after all, the stinky pirates were still there, as was Peter, probably still moping over her. She wondered if Wendy Darling had come back. Maybe she'd been eaten by crocodiles.

She looked up as two more came in. Ruby and Gretel were going to be busy, then. She recognised the curly hair of one as Gold Lockhart. The other she recognised vaguely, but couldn't put a name on her. She rolled her eyes and turned back to the counter. She didn't particularly like Gold and so wasn't going to waste time with a conversation. She had better things to spend her energy on. She looked over at the stranger. Maybe if she spoke to him, she'd get a better idea of where she knew him from.

"Hello. I'm Trixie. What's your name?" She asked.

Location: Ruby's Dinner


"What a dreadful little town."

A beautiful black and white Panther de Ville pulled in front of Ruby's Dinner. Cruella, clad in black designer dress, opened the car door and stepped out, allowing smoke and 1930's Jazz to freely fill the air. She tossed her cigarette onto the ground, promptly stomping it out with a red bottom Louis Vuitton, and scanned the drab little town around her. "Absolutely dreadful." she said, shaking her head in disapproval.

"Jasper! Horace!" she called into the car. "Come along now, darlings." Two large Rottweilers jumped out of the back seats, quickly sitting by their mistress' side. Cruella slammed the car door and adjusted the black sun hat sitting atop her dual colored hair.

Cruella walked into the rather busy establishment. The air around her smelled of cigarettes, gin, and expensive perfume. The witch removed her hat as she sat down at the counter and flipped through a menu. She toyed with the diamond necklace around her throat as she skimmed the breakfast special

She had recently bought a large estate just outside of Crimson Grove and this would be her first appearance within the little shanty town. She would have to make a good impression if she was to produce her next coat in a timely manner. Oh how she wanted that big bad coat. She got the chills just thinking about it.

When a waitress came up to her, Cruella's red lips twisted into a pleasant smile. "Hello, Darling. I'll take a black coffee and an order of scrambled egg whites." One of the dogs below her growled in the direction of a sweaty shirtless boy, causing Cruella to smile internally. Perhaps she'd leave this horrid place with more than one new coat. She nudged the animal with her shoe and tsked at him in a disapproving tone. "Oh stop it you wretched thing!"

She looked back at the waitress. "Oh, Darling, one more thing if you don't mind." She cosied up to the counter, and leaned forward as if she were telling a secret. "You see my husband and I just moved into town and we're trying to get to know the community a little better. We're thinking about having a housewarming party and, well-" she smiled nervously and scrunched her nose, as if she were embarrassed. "I'm not really sure if we invited the locals that anyone would come. Do you think the people here would be open to having a soirée at a complete stranger's house or is that idea just demented?"

She shook her head dismissively. "I'm sorry, Darling, you probably don't want a strange englishwoman asking your advice this early in the morning." Cruella smile sweetly at the waitress, then sighed and looked down at her bony hands. The Devil Woman would have this whole town eating out of her claws in no time.

The trio didn't fit together, as far as appearances went. They were cut from different cloth, one lace, one silk, and one suede. They were three walking stereotypes, a miniature Breakfast Club cast, thrown together by a twisted fate. The princess, with her ivory locks and contagious giggle. The brain, with his preppy outfit and awkward mannerisms. And the basket case, with her heavy boots picking fights with the cobblestones, and her hair catching the light, this day a pale lilac, although it was prone to change.

They walked side by side, and chattered amongst themselves as they entered the mysterious town that they had decided to stop by in for a little while. Of course, with them, a 'little while' could be between a couple of days to a month or so, and thus their conversation was less focused on how long they'd be staying in Crimson Grove and more about where they could find something to eat.

"I don't suppose you have any idea where you're going?" The 'brain' frowned pointedly at the purple-haired girl to his left, who seemed to be directing the group in every direction. In most cases, he would be enjoying himself at the prospect of a new environment, taking in the sights and admiring the architecture. However, at this current time, he and his two companions were rather deadset on something far more important: breakfast.

"Perhaps a map...?"

The girl responded snark that wasn't all that out of character, although the bluntness of it was certainly spurred by her empty stomach. "Oh, right, of course! A map! I'll just whip out my 'A to Z Atlas of Obscure Towns..." She feigned reaching into her back in search of the fictional book, before shooting him a withering look. In response, he only tutted.

"It's weird that this place is so unknown, though, right?" The 'princess' chipped in merrily, apparently far less prone to hunger-driven sulks that her friends. As she looked around, her eyes were wide with childlike enthusiasm, and her pale lips were curled into a smile. "I mean, it's pretty cute, and it's right by the seasi- Oh! Look!" She pointed eagerly to a shop sign, and the others followed her gesture before the faces broke into relieved smiles.

"About bloody time. I thought I was gonna starve to death." "You ate yesterday." "Your point is?"

With Ari now leading the way, the three entered the cafe. As they walked through the door, the bell above rang out with a cheery softness, as though welcoming them in. They moved over to a free table in the corner, sliding into the seats before immediately picking up the menus laid out on the smooth, polished wood.

Ari looked about the diner with the same enthusiastic smile she had wielded so prettily before, and nudged Irvyn in the arm, -at the same time prodding Gin's leg with her foot- to get their attention. "And this diner's cute, too! I don't get why we haven't visited this place before!"

Gin shrugged, still eyeing up the menu, in her head deciding on a bowl of fries and a strawberry thickshake. "I dunno. It is cute, I guess. A little weird, though."

Irvyn raised his eyebrows, perplexed, and Ari frowned curiously. "Weird? How so?"

Gin shrugged once more, trying to think up a reason for the odd feeling she got by being here, in this little town. It was strange, but she felt as though this place was... different. Different to all the other villages, cities, and towns that they'd wandered through before. Why? God knows.

"I dunno. It just is."

"Oh. It 'just is'. How very informative."

"Shut up."

"These items are at least worth a couple hundred each," Flynn said as he placed the array of stolen items on the counter inspection. The owner of the pawn shop starting looking at each of them. Gold placed a hand on her hip and stared at the at the pudgy man, with 'don't mess with me' eyes. One look at Gold, had the man clicking his tongue is annoyance. Let just say, Gold had blown her top here on more than one occasion.

"You're right. I'll give you $800 for the lot," the owner said eventually.

"Thanks," Flynn said accepting the money and grabbing Gold by the arm to force her to leave with him. Gold was annoyed, she had a serious rule about never taking the first amount offered, and Flynn knew it. "I know what you're thinking, we could have gotten more for it but this is good enough. Here," Flynn said once they were out of the pawn shop. He handed Gold her half of the money which she quickly pocketed, you couldn't be flashing that kind of cash, there were thieves in Crimson Grove.

"Easy for you to say, looking like this doesn't come cheap," Gold said defiantly as she gestured to her face. Though the message was somewhat lost in the fact that after a whole night of hard work, or as some people would say thieving, she looked slightly less than perfect. Remembering the hard work she had put in last night made her pause in the middle of the road and look back at the pawn shop, tossing up whether to go back and demand the money she felt her and Flynn were rightfully entitled to.

"Come on Gold, if you must you can yell at the man later. Right now we need to eat something," Flynn said as he walked off toward the diner, leaving Gold in the middle of the street.

"Fine." Gold cracked and ran off after Flynn, though she refused to admit he had won, and so instead she walked to paces in front of him with her nose in the air. "But only because I'm dying for a coffee."

They both walked into the Diner and Gold did what all good thieves do. She scanned the room. She saw nothing attention grabbing, Ruby, her new waitress, Trixie sitting at the counter, and a few others. "Got a new person. We need to keep an ear out to see if he has anything of value on him," Flynn whispered into Gold's ear. Okay, maybe the whole sleep deprivation thing was dulling her senses.

"Oh him? He's cute."She said as she watched him out of the corner of her eye and joined Flynn in the booth he had chosen. "I gotta say Flynn, I am loving these new-comers to Crimson Grove," She said low enough for only Flynn to hear.

Gold flipped through the menu, as she saw Dr. Weaver sit down next to the new guy. "Peter, correct? I've been waiting for you to arrive! Thank goodness you arrived safely." So the newcomer knew Dr. Weaver, that was certainly something, after all, Dr. Weaver was the very definition of a man with too much money.

That was when Gold stopped listening to the pair at the counter as her attention was stolen by the very luxurious black and white car that just pulled up outside the dinner. Gold knew it was an out-of-towner, since her chosen profession involved keeping tabs on all the rich people and their pricey possessions.

She watched as a woman left the car, and strutted into the diner. The woman was all old-school glamor. Dressed in expensive designer wear, bathed in a perfume Gold would never be able to afford and they way she commanded the room. She made the $400 in Gold's pocket feel like chump change. For the first time Gold was completely conflicted. She knew as a thief she should be scoping her out like she would any other potential victim. At the same time though, Gold's natural instinct was to watch in awe. She didn't want to rob this woman, she wanted to be this woman. Classy, elegant, glamorous and very, very rich. Gold looked to Flynn to and raised her eyebrows questioningly.

Image"Can I have pancakes with berries and syrup, please Ruby? And do you still have that berry tea. If you don't, I'll just have a normal tea." she heard the little fairy question and just like every other time before, she would nod her head and write down her order among the others she had heard from the patrons at the counter. "Of course I still have the berry tea. I honestly kept it around because it's your favorite," she stated before turning back towards the new blonde guy who apparently seemed to know the doctor.

"Why good morning Miss Hood, how is your father doing?" She sighed and just shrugged her shoulders, "Just as he was months ago. There has been no change." Ruby honestly just wished her father would hurry up and return to normal. It would be so much easier to help him change his ways without his wolf getting in the middle of all the decisions he chooses to make.

"Oh, I'll take a coffee, if you don't mind." Ruby jotted down his coffee order before stepping back into the kitchen and placed Trixie's order upon the line with the other orders and she immediately started fixing Trixie and Remus's drinks. After a couple minutes, she stepped out with the coffee and tea before setting them down in front of the two of them. "Your pancakes will be out in five minutes," she stated to her best friend. At that moment she thought back to Belle, wondering how she was doing this morning. Maybe she'd stop by back and home and check on her father and Belle during lunch.

Just when she thought the rest of the morning was going to go by so plainly she noticed Flynn and Gold step inside and take a seat after studying all of the customers who were inside. Ruby immediately felt for Gretel, seeing as how she had to deal with taking those thieves orders. Ruby just hoped they wouldn't attempt taking things from her shop. She didn't want to get the police involved, again. That was the last thing on her list of things to do, ever.

Ruby chuckled a bit when she noticed Eric's dog running off again, something that happened almost every morning Eric took Max out for a walk. She shook her head and returned her attention back to the customers in the diner. Just then the bell rang for her to grab Trixie's food.

Ruby walked back into the kitchen, retrieved the food and set it down in front of Trixie. "Here you go," just as she spoke she noticed Jack Frost step inside.

She stepped away from Trixie, knowing that he was going to speak to her among all people and she didn't want to make either of them feel like she was just wanting to be in the middle of their business, so she began making herself busy. Just as she stepped away, she felt a freezing chill down her spine. She shivered a bit and glanced over at Jack with a soft smile, knowing it had to be him. When she got cold chills, they never felt like ice, so there was no other reason for it. Deep down Ruby wished she would be able to get to know Jack instead of just knowing what she sees.

After a couple moments, Ruby heard her father howling. She immediately dropped what she was doing and was getting ready to run out after her father, but Jack stopped her. He placed his hand upon her shoulder, sending an immense amount of cold chills throughout her body, he was going to take care of her father for her. "Thanks," was all she managed to say before he went on his way. She hoped her father was alright.

The brunette leaned over to Trixie and eyed the necklace and wand she had in her hand, "What was that about?" she questioned before looking over at Flynn who seemed to have a huge eye on Trixie's new possessions. "Now you might want to put those items out of sight before a couple hands get a hold of them," she whispered, signaling towards Flynn and Gold.
Image
Though once again, she was interrupted by another newcomer, a rather glamorous one at that matter. Though she just couldn't help but feel like there was something dangerous about that woman. She watched as she sat down at one of the booths before attempting to start up a conversation with Gretel. Ruby sighed when she noticed three more people stepping inside and figured that she mind as well give Gretel a bit of help with the tables.

Ruby stepped out from behind the counter and stepped up to the table where the three newcomers sat. "Hello, I'm Ruby Hood, I'll be your waitress this morning. What could I get you?" she questioned.

"Good morning Antonio, have a nice run?" "You bet." he cheerfully answered before turning his attention towards the menu. Everything on it always sounded so good to him but them again Andy would eat anything, he was a person big on food. Finally his eyes landed on what he wanted to eat, pancakes with blueberry syrup, scrambled eggs and bacon. If there was one thing Andy was good at then it was definitely eating and a lot. The wolf boy was about to get up when Trixie walked in and gave everyone a smile and greeting. Andy being himself smiled back and gave her a small wave. Then right after another person walked in, a blonde-ish male. Andy hadn't seen him around town but then again he doesn't think he had met everyone yet so he brushed it off as one of the towns people he hasn't met yet but his assumption was corrected when he heard Ruby greet him. She had welcomed him to Crimson Grove so obviously the guy wasn't from here.

Making a mental note to introduce himself later, Andy once again got distracted by Flynn who walked in with his sidekick. Honestly Andy had no problem with the little blonde even if she may have a problem with him or not but Flynn was another case. Andy sometimes wanted to get along with the guy but when he got shady and tried to steal from Ruby the couple of times since Andy's been here it got him a bit annoyed but whatever, the guy hasn't done anything yet so they were on good terms until then. Next came a tall man with a cane that Antonio only saw about once or twice around town, he was the towns doctor if he remembered correctly. Next was Jack, he walked in and exchanged some words with Trixie when all of a sudden that loud howl pierced through Andy's ears.

He sat up stiff as he looked out the large window towards were the sound came from with his head slowly titling sideways. His eyes flashed red for what seemed like a split second and he could see his reaction in the glass. Hearing some plates clatter behind him he turned to see Ruby looking worried and about to run out of here when Jack stopped her. Andy just stared at her, he didn't mean to honestly but he gave her that same curious tilt of the head that he just did. Was there someone else out there like him and Ruby in this town? His ears picked up on the door bell that chimed when it was open and a strong scent hit his nose. An odd mix of cigarette smoke and perfume came off this tall, fancy looking woman.

There was something off about her that Andy couldn't put his finger on but the dogs are what distracted him quickly from her. One growled at him but Andy couldn't help but to stare at them with a goofy grin and a childish gleam in his eyes once more. Andy loved all dogs no matter how big or small they were or how they acted or looked. He adored the slobbering and yapping creatures. Getting up from the booth with menu in hand he trotted over to the counter and took a seat next to the woman. If the lad had a tail, it'll be wagging all over the place right now. Flashing his wolf eyes down at the dogs for a second he then reached down to pet the closest to him. It let him without protest and Andy rubbed his ears before smiling over to the woman then at Gretel. " Hey, your working here now?" he asked curiously before continuing with his order. "I'll have pancakes with blueberry syrup, scrambled eggs and bacon please."
Image
The wolf boy sat there waiting for his food while the woman next to him began talking to Gretel, he tried not to be nosy but since he was sitting next to her there was no way to not listen to her. The diner was getting pretty busy wasn't it? He thought to himself when he heard the door open again. Right there is when an all too familiar scent punched Antonio in the nose. His head quickly jerked over the group of three that just walked in. Among them was a face he knew too well because he had knew her before he even cursed by the wolf. He blinked a couple of times making sure what he saw was real and not just some trick of hunger but no matter how many times he blinked she was still there. In all honestly he thought she was dead, not turning back was one of his regrets when she told him to run. How depressed he and Amelia were after that.

He thought he lost a dear friend, one of his most treasured people, one out of a handful of people he considered family. Gin was among others though, a pale, beautiful girl who's face seemed vaguely familiar and a young man who reminded Andy of a rabbit. Something felt off about her too and once again he couldn't stop his staring and that tilt of the head he did when he was curious about something. Half of him wanted to jump out of his chair and hug Gin but the other half wasn't so sure that she recognized him.

Ruby quickly explained what Gretel needed to do, while passing her a notepad and pen. Gretel nodded dumbly trying to remember everything. Her memory was not the best. Though according to her fifth grade teacher neither was her mathematics ability, handwriting and social skills. Incidentally Gretel also hated her fifth grade teacher. "If you have any questions, I'd suggest you ask them now,"

"Um," Gretel looked down at the notepad in her hands, quickly running through her instructions in her head. "Take order. Hang order in kitchen. Bell rings. Take food to table. How hard can that be?"

"Oh, you'll need this," Ruby said as she handed Gretel an apron.

Gretel was relieved that the apron was white. She had actually been dreading the fact that she might be made to wear a frilly, floral apron. A thought she had accidentally mentioned to Hansel. He of course thought she was being ridiculous. Though she had got him to admit that he also would like to avoid having to wear a frilly, floral apron.

The door to the store opened as their first customer of the day arrived. "Morning ladies!" Antonio chirped happily as he sat in one of the booth. Gretel was kind of happy he picked the booth over the bar; that was she got to serve him. The boy hadn't been in town long, but Gretel doesn't take long when deciding whether she liked something or not, and she had decided she like Antonio.

"Alright, let's get to work then," Ruby said and she left to go behind the bar.

Gretel made her way over to Antonio's booth. " Hey, your working here now?"

"Yep, lucky you, my first customer," Gretel replied dully."Anyway Andy, I see you got the dress code," Gretel motioned to his apparent lack of shirt. Apparently he liked to run shirtless. Of course she had never seen him running shirtless as that would involve actually getting out of bed before midday, which was something she was willing to try for a view of Antonio shirtless. Though more than one of the oldies at the Nursing Home had been talking up fearsome tales of the town's first nudist moving in "So what can I get you for breakfast?"

Gretel looked across the restaurant and noticed how full it had gotten. She hadn't even noticed all the people entering. Maybe she wasn't going to make such a great waitress after all. Of course she didn't fail to notice that Flynn had come in, and he was sitting at one of the booths, meaning she would get to serve him. When she caught Flynn's eye she smiled at him.

However her smile dropped immediately as another customer entered the store. Now she was a Lady. She had black and white hair, blood red lipstick, and diamonds around her neck. Gretel felt her skin start to tingle. Gretel wasn't a particularly good witch. Partly due to the fact she never cared much for practice, and partly because after her parents left, her and Hansel were forced to learn their supernatural craft on their own. Of course with some help from the internet. Gretel knew enough about witchcraft though to know what dark magic felt like.

"I'll have pancakes with blueberry syrup, scrambled eggs and bacon please." Antonio said, dragging Gretel's attention away from the woman.

Gretel forced herself to look back at Antonio. "Uh, Yeah sure, that will just be a few minutes."Gretel replied as she wrote down his order and took it into the kitchen.

Gretel knew she'd have to talk to the woman eventually. "Hi, what can i get for you?" Gretel asked trying her best to be polite.

"Hello, Darling. I'll take a black coffee and an order of scrambled egg whites." The woman said with a pleasant smile, that made Gretel feel more at ease. "Oh stop it you wretched thing!" The woman said to one of her very large dogs that started barking.

"Yep, that's fine, it won't be long." Gretel replied, all ready to take the order to the kitchen.

"Oh, Darling, one more thing if you don't mind." The woman said leaning, giving Gretel a good whiff of her very strong perfume.

"Yea?"

"You see my husband and I just moved into town and we're trying to get to know the community a little better. We're thinking about having a housewarming party and, well-" The woman looked a little uncomfortable, so Gretel tried to smile and look friendly. "I'm not really sure if we invited the locals that anyone would come. Do you think the people here would be open to having a soirée at a complete stranger's house or is that idea just demented?" The woman shook her head. "I'm sorry, Darling, you probably don't want a strange englishwoman asking your advice this early in the morning."

Besides the fact Gretel hated being called darling, the woman seemed perfectly harmless. After all, dark witches didn't hsve soirées and worried about whether or not people would come. Gretel just shrugged. "It is a little early in the morning, but I say go ahead, I'm sure people will want to come, and if they don't, who cares."

Incidentally at that moment, Trixie turned around in her seat, and pronounced that she would love to come. Gretel gave the woman an 'I told you so look,' and went to put the ladies order in the kitchen. Gretel sighed, if the woman did go ahead with her idea, Gretel did not want to go, but she knew Ariel would definitely want to two of them to go.

Next up Gretel went to Flynn and Gold's table. "Here's trouble," She said approaching their booth. "Should I tell Ruby to check the till money after you two leave?" Gretel asked jokingly. "What can I get you guys?" She pulled out her notepad and got ready to take their orders.

ImageFlynn chuckled a bit as he glanced over at Gold and back over to the new blonde guy. "What's so cute about him? I don't see it," he chimed before glancing down at the menu. He immediately laid his eyes upon Ruby's homemade vanilla batter waffles with powdered sugar sprinkled on top. That's been something he always wanted to try, but he never really did. It didn't take him very long to decide on what he wanted.

The male set the menu down on the table and returned his attention to the blonde sitting just across the table from him. It may seem a bit cliche and all, but he not only had a thing for Gretel, one of his best friends, but also for Gold, his other best friend. He was just caught between the two of them and didn't really have any idea what to do with this.

The male watched as more customers piled inside, some he didn't know, some he recognized, and some he just flat out didn't care for. It wasn't until the glamorous billionaire stepped inside that he seemed interested in anyone but Gold and Gretel. The woman definitely knew she had money and didn't mind flaunting it. She had a nice vehicle outside, just parked in front of the diner and two dogs at her side. One of whom started barking at Antonio, he couldn't help but to smirk. Though the woman seemed to quickly quiet him down. Flynn was surprised that Ruby didn't say anything to the woman about her dogs, but then again she was the type not to care as long as they weren't bothering any of her customers or making a mess of the diner.

After sitting there for a couple minutes, they were greeted by Gretel. "Here's trouble," She said approaching their booth. "Should I tell Ruby to check the till money after you two leave?" Flynn rolled his eyes playfully and let out a small, sarcastic, "Ha ha." "What can I get you guys?" Gretel pulled out her notepad and got ready to take their orders.
Image
"I'll have the vanilla waffles with a side of sausage and a vanilla cappuccino," he stated just as he glanced out the window, finding her older brother glaring in at him. The male smirked at him before returning his attention to the females, Gretel and Gold.

He knew he was eventually going to get confronted by Hansel. He just hoped it wasn't going to be any time soon. It's not like he was doing anything with his sister or making her join him on his little so called jobs. Now if she chose to tag along he definitely wouldn't pass it up, but he wouldn't come right out and ask her.

ImageRuby stood there for a couple moments, waiting on the small group's final decisions before jotting down their orders. Each of them seemed to be completely different from the other, in the sort of way you would see a high school clique mix up. It was strange to figure the three of them seemed to be as close as they were, but she didn't question it. As long as they got along and didn't start any trouble in her diner, she didn't care.

"Alright, your orders will be right out," she stated as she retreated to the kitchen and hung their ticket on the line and stepped out the kitchen with Peter's order. She set it down on the counter in front of him with a polite smile, "Here you are," she stated before glancing over at the doctor then around at everyone inside. It seemed to be that everyone had been tended on at the moment. So now would be the best time to go and check on her father and see how Belle was doing. She hated not saying anything to her before leaving for work.

Ruby stepped over to Gretel, who seemed to be taking orders from Flynn and Gold at the moment. She sent a small glare over towards the male before grabbing the waitress's attention. "It seems that everything is slowing down. There is an order in the kitchen being cooked for the booth with the three young adults over there that needs to be taken out when it's ready. But other than that, everything is taken care of. I'm going to head home for a bit, I shouldn't be any longer than an hour. Lunch is slower than breakfast. If you need anything call me, my number is on the bulletin board in the employees lounge," she stated before starting on her way out of the diner.

Ruby started on her walk back to her home, it took about twenty minutes to arrive. When she stepped inside, everything seemed to feel a bit tense. Her first thought was looking for Belle. She knew Jack most likely had things handled with her father, so she would just check on him after she spoke to Belle. But first she needed to find her, "Belle, where are you?" she called out into the mansion sized home.
ImageRuby rounded the corner down one of the halls and started looking down it, hoping that she was probably in the library. She stepped inside the huge room and began looking around each bookcase. "Belle?"

Just as she rounded another bookcase, she spotted a book on the floor titled: Myths and Legends: Wolf Edition. Ruby sighed and shook her head, of course something like this would be in here, but why was it on the floor if Belle wasn't around? The female shrugged her shoulders and slid it back into it's spot on the shelf and continued her search.

“Here’s trouble,” Gretel said by way of greeting as she approached the booth occupied by Gold and Flynn. "Should I tell Ruby to check the till money after you two leave?"

Flynn gave out a sarcastic laugh, and Gold just smiled wryly. “I would,” she said mock serious.

"What can I get you guys?" Gretel asked while pulling out her notepad and getting ready to take their orders.

"I'll have the vanilla waffles with a side of sausage and a vanilla cappuccino," Flynn order as Gold whilst still scanning the menu.

“Ugh, finally, now I can stop hearing you talk about how much you want to try Ruby’s vanilla waffles,” Gold muttered under her breathe in response to Flynn’s order. Finally deciding what she wanted she snapped the menu closed at looked up at Gretel. “I’ll have a black coffee, and the French Toast.” Gold’s favourite food was French toast. Her mum used to make it all the time for her when she was younger. Gold never really thought about her family or anything, as far as she was concerned they were her past, and she was never plagued with homesickness or longing for them. However the one thing that always brought her thoughts back to her old home was French toast. She craved her mum’s French toast, not matter where she went, she could not find anywhere that made French toast better than her mother.

Gretel was writing down her order when Ruby approached her and told her that she would be leaving the store for a while. That’s when Gold’s eyes lit up. Though she downplayed her listening in on the conversation and busied herself picking at her dark purple nail polish. She mentally noted that Ruby said she would be gone for an hour. She and Flynn had been trying to scope out Ruby’s diner for a while, but she seemed to have some sixth sense about thieves and she always knew when they were near. The diner was busier than Gold would have preferred, but it was the perfect opportunity, with Ruby gone and the new girl left behind to take care of a busy breakfast crowd. The least they could do would be to properly scope out the diner.

Gold waited for Gretel to leave before she leaned in towards Flynn and lowered her voice. “Hear that Flynn, that cat’s away for a full hour. This could be our chance.”

Gold leaned back and relaxed into the seat, she knew Flynn was close with Gretel and would be reluctant to do anything. The Flynn she knew though, knew that business was business and it came first. They’d have to wait a bit to do anything anyway. Acting straight away after hearing that Ruby was leaving and right after they had ordered food was a rookie mistake.

"I'll have the vanilla waffles with a side of sausage and a vanilla cappuccino," Flynn ordered, as Gretel scribbled down his order. Her handwriting was not the best, she just hoped the cook could read her orders.

Gretel heard Gold mutter to herself, “Ugh, finally, now I can stop hearing you talk about how much you want to try Ruby’s vanilla waffles.” Gretel didn’t mind Gold, but Gold and Flynn were so close, they always had inside jokes and knew everything about each other. Gretel had to admit it made her a little jealous.

“And you, Gold?” Gretel asked turning to the blonde. Though whilst Gold was still making up her mind, Gretel caught sight of Hansel waving to her from outside. She scowled, and made a ‘piss off’ gesture at him.

She could not believe he was actually checking up on her. He probably thought she was going to get grumpy with a customer and get fired or something. Then he even had to audacity to glare at Flynn when he saw the she was talking to him. She groaned out loud taking every self-restraint she had not to fly through the window and strangle her brother to death. Though she supposed she couldn't blame Hansel, for the longest time, he had not only been her oldest, but her mother and her father all in one. It was no wonder he was kind of forthcoming with his criticisms of her life. Though she couldn't blame him, she was certainly irritated with him.

“I’ll have a black coffee, and the French Toast.” Gretel scribbled down Gold’s order and went to leave when Ruby approached her.

“I'm going to head home for a bit, I shouldn't be any longer than an hour. Lunch is slower than breakfast. If you need anything call me, my number is on the bulletin board in the employees lounge," Ruby said.

“Oh, Okay,” Gretel replied, a little shocked that she being left to handle everything by herself already. She took it as a good sign though, apparently she hadn’t been doing too badly. “See ya,” Gretel called out to Ruby, before turning back to Gold and Flynn. “Your guys’ food will be out soon.”

Gretel went and hung up her new food order in the kitchen when she heard the bell ring. What did the bell mean again? Oh, right, food. She saw the three plates of food that must have been from the table Ruby had been talking about. Gretel grabbed them and took them out to the booth with three people in them.

“Okay, so I have the bowl of fries, Ruby Special and a club sandwich.” Gretel said placing the meals on the table one by one. “And for drinks, there’s a strawberry thick shake and a mango smoothie.” Now there was nothing else to do, everyone had either already had their food or their food was still cooking. She noticed that the table of people she had just served seemed like a very odd combination of people to be hanging out. Then again this town did seem to only attract the especially odd.

Gretel could hear Hansel’s voice in her head telling her to be friendly and try and make conversation. She so stuffing down her naturally antisocial she put on a smile and asked the table of three, “So, you guys are new to town right? How you liking Crimson Grove so far?” Then Gretel heard to bell in the kitchen ring again. “Oh, sorry, I’ll just be one second,” she said awkwardly.

Gretel got to kitchen and grabbed Antonio’s order. She smiled at Antonio as she dropped the plat on his table, “Here ya go Andy, your pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon. Let’s hope you can fit it all in.” Luckily Antonio’s table was right next to the three out-of-towners, so she only had to spin around to talk to them again. “Sorry, I didn’t catch your guys’ names?”

Dialogue Color: #003366 || Location: Ruby's Diner

ImageAs Flynn sat there, listening to Gold making her order, he noticed Ruby step over to the table and speak to Gretel, telling her she was leaving the diner for a bit. That girl really must be able to trust Gretel if she was willing to leave her here alone with Flynn and Gold in the building. The male kept his eyes away from Ruby, he had to be sure to keep his thoughts about taking advantage of her departure non-obvious.

The moment both women stepped away, Gold mentioned something about the very thing he had been thinking. "This would be a great chance. Though I don't think it would be a very easy task with how crowded this diner is at the moment," he began to whisper back. "If any one of these people notice what we're doing, then we're busted," he added.

Yeah, everyone in town knew they were thieves, but they didn't need to get caught in the act. So much trouble could come from this happening. Crimson Grove didn't need that trouble. It was bad enough the town didn't have an official sheriff at the moment because the previous one seemed to disappear into thin air, which was honestly quite strange.
Image
"So how do you propose we do this?" he questioned, hoping to see if she had any ideas. At the moment, nothing seemed to be on his mind, which was quite strange because Flynn always had ideas. Though that never meant they were good ideas, but he always had at least one.

"If any one of these people notice what we're doing, then we're busted," Flynn warned, causing Gold to frown.

She reached across the table and patted his hand gently mocking concern. ”Oh, honey, hasn’t anyone ever told you? The idea is not to be noticed.” Gold leaned back smirking to herself as she surveyed the dinner. Flynn was right it was very full at the moment and it would be hard to do much. That never deterred Gold though. She always took big risks.

"So how do you propose we do this?" Flynn asked. Causing Gold to look out across the dinner, scanning it, hoping for an idea to pop into her brain. Of course nothing came to her. It really did seem an impossible task. Which sucked as with Ruby gone, this was the best chance her and Flynn would get. Gold could already picture the black-haired girl’s face when she found her store had been robbed. Gold wouldn’t feel any guilt, the girl was born with s silver spoon in her mouth and was basically handed this dinner. In Gold’s opinion, Ruby didn’t know what it was like to work for anything.

”We have already talked about this Flynn. You’re the ideas and I’m the looks.” Gold replied, once she had given up looking for ideas, throwing her golden ringlets over her shoulder. That was when her eyes landed on the fire alarm right next to the toilet. That’s when she knew exactly how they were going to pull this off. Leaning in Gold lowered her voice, to a whisper. “Maude’s, a year ago, I say we perform a repeat performance.” Gold indicated with her head towards the fire alarm.

Maude’s had been a small bar and grill from some other town in some other place. Gold and Flynn had robbed last with the help of a well-timed distraction. Back then, Gold had used a match to make the fire alarm go off, and then when everyone evacuated the building and waited for the firemen to arrive. Flynn who had been lying in wait at a rear door, broke in and stole the money from the restaurant’ safe. Then they two of them were gone before the firemen had even discovered that there was no fire. It had worked perfectly back then, and Gold was confident it could work again.

“So, do you want to be the distraction or the thief this time?” Gold asked grinning wickedly. The excitement of a potential robbery already hitting her.

ImageFlynn smirked when he heard her bring up Maude's. That was an amazing day, one of the best the two of them have ever done. "I'll give you a chance at feeling the adrenaline this time I had too much fun at Maude's," he responded as he stood to his feet and pulled out the matches from his pocket, showing them to Gold very briefly in a way no one else would notice before stepping into the male's restroom.

Flynn looked up at the ceiling for the water spicket before lighting the match and holding it up to the spicket, waiting for it to signal that there was a fire in the building. Just as the water began running out the spicket in the bathroom, he ran out the door, acting as if there were a real fire in the restroom and pulled the fire alarm, setting off that loud, annoying beeping sound and activating the other water spickets in the building. "There's a fire!" he shouted over the loudness in the building before heading out the door with the rest of the crowd. That's when he gave Gold their signal. It was now her turn.

Gretel’s head whipped up as water started literally falling from the ceiling. She frowned curiously for a second, processing exactly what was happening. She couldn’t seem to understand why it was raining inside.

"There's a fire!" Flynn yelled across the dinner, coming out of the bathroom.

Shit.” She cursed as it suddenly hit her that there was a fire. “Everyone there’s a fire!” She called, repeating Flynn’s warning for no real reason. She just felt like at the one Ruby had left in charge she had to say something. Then she started ushering people of the diner out on the street, making sure to stick her head into the kitchen and make sure the chef made it out okay. As everyone was mostly outside she started trying to mentally make sure everyone was out safe. She would never forgive herself

Once out on the street waiting for the firemen to show up, it hit her. Gretel had been left in charge of the diner for all of fifteen minutes and there was a fire. She sighed before addressing the people around, “So, Ruby is probably going to kill me. Sorry about your guys meals though.” She supposed she was just destined to destroy everything she touched. She ripped off her apron as she realised she had lost her first job on her first day. “Oh, well, I guess I’ll be back working with the oldies then,” Gretel said grumpily. She didn’t even bother trying to see the upside of her causing a fire. Hansel would definitely laugh at her when he heard about this. Then probably tell her off. She didn’t know which sounded worse.

Gretel is no expert on fires, considering she has never actually really seen a house fire or anything. She figured the sprinklers must have put out the fire though because she couldn’t see any flames or smoke through the glass front. Hopefully that meant the fire wouldn’t have of had a chance to damage much of the diner.

She didn’t really know what she was supposed to do now, considering she had been left in charge, but she realised she better call Ruby. Sighing she reluctantly pulled out her phone and typed in Ruby’s number, putting it to her ear as she heard the dial tone. “Hey, it’s me Gretel. There’s been a fire at your diner. I’m sorry,” Gretel said into the phone, not even thinking about whether she was talking to Ruby or Ruby’s voicemail.

"I'll give you a chance at feeling the adrenaline this time I had too much fun at Maude's," Flynn answered.

Gold smirked happily. “I was hoping you were going to say that.” Being the distraction was fun, and Gold’s parents would probably be happy that the acting classes Gold went to when she was 8 and was going through her ‘I want to be a famous movie star phase’ were getting some use. The real fun would always been the sneaking around the robbery though. That was where all the action was, and that was where Gold wanted to be.

She nodded inconspicuously as Flynn showed her the matches. Then she got up and left the store. Leaning against the brick wall of the back of Ruby’s door waiting for Flynn to set the sprinklers off, she pulled her mane of curl into a high ponytail. She always pulled her hair back on a job. That when she realised what she was about to do. She frowned realising she shouldn’t have taken so long doing her hair, and she shouldn’t have worn such nice clothes. The water was going to ruin her hair and clothes.

Then she heard the sprinkles go off and she leaped into action. She counted out thirty second to make sure everyone had left the back of the store before she let herself in through the back door. The trouble with Ruby’s dinner was that the whole store front was glass, and everyone should now be standing around on the other side of the glass able to clearly see most of what was going on. Gold walked around the kitchen, squinting to see through the water spray out of the roof sprinklers. She couldn’t see any obvious signs of money here.

She moved out into the diner, but stayed crouched down behind the bar so no one could see her from outside. She made her way to the register, and pulling out her lock pick, Gold set to work getting the register drawer open, very aware of how long Flynn’s little diversion would for. After a few minute she got the drawer open, but being so early in the day there were only a big notes in there. Gold grabbed the larger notes and shoved them into her back pocket, before putting the register back.

She continued sneaking around looking for a safe or something that Ruby kept the serious money in. Gold eventually found such a safe, but it was a combination lock safe. Not something she could break into with the minimal tools she had on her and the time Flynn had given her. Sighing about coming about on the rather lighter side of a robbery, Gold headed back to kitchen and was preparing to leave when she noticed the red cape that Ruby always wore lying on one of the benches.

Gold immediately smiled to herself and strode across the kitchen and picked it up, it was soaked in water, but it didn’t matter Gold pulled it over her shoulder and spun around. It felt luxurious. Taking the coat with her, Gold left the store. She may not have gotten much of the money she had dreamed off but now she had a lovely red cape to make up for it.

Closing the kitchen door behind her, Gold ringed out the water out of her hair and clothes. Then she hid the cape in her bag before walking back to the front on the store and inconspicuously slipping into the crowd of people watching the store, sidling up to Flynn, giving him a knowing grin. “Too easy,” she whispered slyly.

ImageJust as he thought, it took a matter of ten minutes for the fire department to show up. Just before they pulled up, he spotted Gold at his side. He gave her a sly smirk and wrapped his arm around her shoulders before pushing through the crowd. "Good job, what were you able to get?" he questioned in a hushed tone, keeping their conversation away from listening ears. With the two of them whispering to each other, it would be extremely difficult for anyone to hear them over the sirens and commotion out on the streets. He couldn't wait to see Ruby's face when she realized that they have hit her shop when she was gone. "Anything good?" he questioned.

Flynn hoped this was worth it, if they were able to get a bit of money and something of value, the two of them would be set for a bit until they were able to find another "job". He took a quick glance over at Gretel, the poor girl looked a bit stressed from this incident. It just made him chuckle a bit. He returned his attention to his partner in crime as they stood on the sidewalk, away from the huge crowd that was beginning to flood the streets.

Before Trixie got a response from the strange woman, the fire alarm went off and Flynn started yelling about a fire in the bathroom. Trixie frowned. She couldn't smell any smoke or anything, but maybe it was small or wasn't smoking very much. Glancing briefly at the strange woman, she stood up. As soon as she was on her feet, she was practically carried out of the diner by the crowd. She was outside before she realised that she didn't have her backpack. Her heart suddenly dropped, and without thinking, she made a burst for the diner. Somebody tried to stop her, but she just ducked under their arm and stayed running. Her bag was still where she had been sitting, and she picked it up, checking that its contents were still there. It was only once she knew that everything was still there that she realised something. If there was a fire, there surely should have been more smoke by now. Gripping the pixie dust around her neck tightly, she cautiously made her way into the bathroom. The ladies' was perfectly clear, and she couldn't even smell a trace of smoke. That gave her the courage to check the men's- which was just as clear. There hadn't been any fire here- or even any trace of one.

She made her way back outside, clutching the straps of her bag tightly. Why would have Flynn said that there was a fire if there hadn't been? There hadn't even been anything to indicate the possibility of a fire starting. A shiver ran down her spine, and she glanced over at Gretel. The poor girl looked really upset, and while her and Trixie mightn't have been the best of friends, she felt obligated to say something.

Tink made her way over to Gretel, still holding onto the straps of her bag. "Gretel? Can I talk to you?" She asked, glancing over her shoulder to check where Flynn was. She had a bit of a bad feeling about this whole thing, and while she didn't want to make any assumptions, she knew that Flynn and Gold weren't exactly the most trustworthy pairing.

Even in his pain-hazed state, Will couldn't miss the chaos as the patrons of the diner piled out onto the street, all turning and staring back at the building. He turned around to watch, hearing mutterings of a fire. Everybody seemed understandably panicked, but there was some confusion as well. This would be an excellent opportunity to talk to them and find out where he could find a doctor. Hopefully they'd be willing to talk to him, even after the whole diner thing.

He stood up, wincing, and made his way over to the crowd. He stopped a few metres away and scanned the crowd. There was a girl with tight curly blonde hair talking to a tall dark and handsome type, but they didn't seem particularly friendly. Eventually, he gave up on trying to pick someone and just went up to the person nearest him and tapped them on the shoulder gently. "I'm sorry, but I don't suppose you could tell me where I could find a doctor?"

ImageJust before Flynn was able to get any answer from Gold, the two of them were interrupted by a male asking about a doctor. He glanced over at the man and nodded his head, finding this a good reason to retreat from the diner. "Sure, we can lead you to the hospital, just follow us," he stated as he slid his hands into his jean pockets and began leading the way.

Just as they rounded a corner he looked towards the male and spoke up, "I'm Flynn and this is Gold. Welcome to Crimson Grove, I assume you're new here?" he stated to the male, over the sirens and commotion that was slowly becoming quieter and quieter the farther away from it they became.
