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 Colour = #f77418


Hansel had been up for an hour or so doing small jobs here and there around the Nursing Home. He had to set up the dining room for breakfast before oldies started pouring in for food. He also had to make sure a room was prepared and available for a new resident they had moving in that day. He learnt early on that there were always jobs to be done around the Nursing Home. Now though he could sit down and enjoy his breakfast, after all it was the most important meal of the day.

"I swear to God, I'm going to kill that witch in room 32," Gretel, his little sister, moaned as she slumped into the seat next to him. "She practically locked me up as her slave the morning." Of course, with Hansel's sister around you couldn't really enjoy much, when she was being a grump and in a bad mood she liked to share it around.

"Myrtle, is really not that bad," Hansel replied easily. Myrtle always needed a bit more hands of help, and could be a bit needy, but Hansel had never had a problem with her. She was good to chat to, unlike some of the other residents she had her wits about her and rarely repeated any stories. "Besides, have you forgotten the reason we get to live here, is that we agreed to help out around the place." Since leaving high school, Hansel had taken on a more full-time role around the place. Though it wasn't a very demanding job, and left Hansel with a lot of relaxed downtime, which was well appreciated by him.

"Easy for you to say, you're the golden boy everyone loves. And, look I'm fine with helping out, but I draw the line and getting on my hands and knees to search for specks of dust under Myrtle's bed," Gretel said definitively, crossing her arms and resting back in her chair.

"I pity your new boss, when she tries to make you do anything," Hansel joked. "Speaking of your job, shouldn't you be leaving soon?"

Gretel's eyes went as wide as saucers as she eyed the clock on the wall across from them. "Great, Now Myrtle's made me late for my first day."

Hansel laughed as Gretel jumped out of her seat and rushed off. Yelling after her, "Be nice to the customers!" After Gretel left, Hansel was finally able to finish his breakfast in peace.

He finished his breakfast then had to do a few more jobs around the place such as cleaning up breakfast, and watering the plants around the place. After which he was free to enjoy the rest of his morning about town. He had a list of things he needed to pick up for the Nursing Home at the shops, that he shoved into his back pocket as he crossed the road into the main part of time. He didn't really have any solid plans, but he figured he'd find something to do. Maybe he's go to Ruby's cafe and check up on Gretel at work.

"Be nice to the customers!" Gretel's brother yelled after her as she raced off. She laughed. Family, they always knew you too well.

When Hansel finished high school, he was more than happy to just continue working at the Nursing Home they lived at. Gretel on the other hand couldn't imagine anything worse. Living at the Nursing Home, and doing small jobs here and their was fine, bearable. Anything more that that though and Gretel couldn't stand the thought of it. That's why she was somewhat excited about getting this job at Ruby's cafe. Which for Gretel is a big thing. She doesn't get excited for anything, birthdays? Christmas? High School graduation? They were all just another day for her. So for her being somewhat excited is amazing.

Of course thanks to Myrtle, one of the residents at the Nursing Home, who had Gretel cleaning her room all morning, Gretel was now late for her first day of work. She was basically running across the streets and cutting every corner she could think off to get to the cafe. Not caring who she ran past on the way, she just didn't want to lose her job before she'd even started.

"Gretel, are you here?" Ruby called out, right as Gretel showed up on the door step. What timing

"Yep," Gretel replied with a half-hearted grin and she desperately tried to regain her breathe. She just hoped her face hadn't gone red and blotchy like it used to in school sport class. It was a serious issue. The only thing that made it better was that it was genetic, so Hansel also got red and blotchy when he did any sort of physical activity.

"Sorry I'm a little late," Gretel said once she had caught her breathe, and she entered the cafe. Gretel looked around taking in the décor, she's eaten here before obviously, as there weren't all that may places to eat out in town. "So, whatcha got in store for me boss?"

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.

There was a small bed in Trixie Bell's apartment, but she usually ended up sleeping on the couch. Not for any particular reason- the bed was more comfortable than the couch. It usually happened because Tink hadn't been aware of how tired she had been until she'd sat down for whatever reason, and had then promptly fallen asleep. Still, her small size meant that she could sleep on the couch without her legs being trailing off the end or without getting a crick in her neck due to an awkward sleeping position. Had she been living with someone else, a blanket may have been put over her- but she lived alone, and today was not one of those days when her landlord came to ask her to do some odd jobs. That was how she paid her rent- getting his shopping, cleaning his house, doing his gardening and so on. She also earned enough money to live on by doing odd jobs for other people- covering shifts in shops when they were stuck, doing various gardening jobs, doing various errands... It was certainly better than having to do the same job every day.

As the rest of the town was starting to go about their day, Tink finally awoke. Again, she was somewhat surprised to find herself on the couch. She really needed to remember to actually go to bed as opposed to sitting down for a break and waking up seven hours later. She stretched as she got to her feet, ruffling her hair. At least she'd actually gotten into her pyjamas last night. But now she needed to change out of them and get herself ready for the day. She went into her bedroom and over to the wardrobe, where she started assembling her outfit. Seeing as it was summer and was going to be warm, she went for a white vest, vivid turquoise shorts, bright pink Doc Martens and polka dot tights, her hair going into pigtails. In terms of makeup, she wore bright pink lipstick and winged eyeliner.

Finally ready to face the day, she decided to head down to the diner for breakfast. It was better and easier than if she made it herself, and she could see Ruby there. Grabbing a backpack and throwing her phone, purse, sunglasses and some pixie dust into it, she headed down to the diner. Antonio was already in a booth there, and she beamed at him. However, Gretel was also there. Now that she thought of it, she had mentioned something about a new job at the diner. That made sense now.

"Hi guys!" She called, climbing up onto a stool at the counter, still beaming at all of them.

Location: Ruby's Cafe

Boyish charm radiated from Peter as he rode in the passenger's seat of a stranger's truck. Without ID, it was hard to get from place to place. He didn't have a lot of memories. He could remember a wonderful childhood full of adventures. He could remember his group of friends. He was the leader and they called themselves 'The Lost Boys'. It must have been because they were orphans or maybe they just loved to get lost in their adventures.

The rusty truck came to stop at the edge of a town. "This is as far as I can take you son." Said the man who quite resembled Santa Claus said to him.

Peter couldn't remember the bloake's name but he smiled at him all the same. "Oh, that's okay. Thank you for taking me this far. It was a pleasure to meet you." He took off his seat belt and held out his hand. He gave the man a good handshake before he hopped out of the truck, his feet hitting the pavement with a soft thud. "May your travels be filled with adventure and safety!" He called to the man, giving a bow and then waving as the man took off.

He slung his backpack over his shoulder and followed the road through the woods. He soon came to a sign that said "Welcome to Crimson Grove." He smiled at the sign, pausing for a moment as if he was looking up at a friend he hadn't seen in a long time. "I think I'm gonna like it here."

With that, Peter was on his way. Soon he came upon a diner. He pushed opened the door and smiled when he heard the bell time. It reminded him a girl with blonde hair who loved to play tricks. She was special to him but he couldn't quite remember her face. Had she been a friend from her childhood?

He went to the counter and took a seat on a stool, dropping his bag on the ground next to him. With his foot he pulled it under his chair so it wouldn't get in anyone's way. There we only a few people inside and it gave off a certain hometown feel. Couldn't remember ever being there before but maybe he had. He shrugged it off and picked up a menu.

Peter was suddenly very hungry. If he sat here long enough, he could probably eat his way entirely through the menu. Then again he couldn't quite pay for all of that at the moment. He flipped to the breakfast section. It was the most important meal of the day, after all.

Image"Yep," she heard Gretel speak, causing her to jump slightly. Ruby turned towards Gretel with a soft smile. "Glad you could make it. The job is pretty self explanatory," Ruby said as she reached for the pencil and small notepad and handed it to her. "Take the customer's orders, write them down and take the order into the kitchen and hang it on the line. When the cook is finished he will ring the bell and you bring the orders to the tables. I'll take care of the bar. If you have any questions, I'd suggest you ask them now," Ruby stated as she tied her red apron around her waist after removing the red hood from around her. She always put the hood back on at five o'clock every evening. That's when the sun starts setting in Crimson Grove.

"Oh, you'll need this," she stated as she held out the apron towards Gretel. Ruby knew she was being a bit hard on her at the moment, but honestly waitressing was something anyone could do. The only thing Ruby had to worry about was see how she treats the customers, that was always the hard part.

"Morning ladies!" Ruby was interrupted by a male voice. When she glanced over she noticed it was Antonio, another wolf who was in town. Of course she never really confronted him about it but it was honestly not her business, especially in public anyway. She might confront him on it, but right now was certainly not the best of times.

Ruby smiled over at him, "Good morning Antonio, have a nice run?" she stated in her friendly tone before returning her attention to Gretel. "Alright, let's get to work then," she stated as she took her place behind the front counter.

Just as Ruby was beginning to finish the final touches behind the counter, she was greeted by Trixie. "Hey, what can I get you?" she questioned as she focused her full attention on the tiny fairy. Trixie was one of the few who knew her secret and she planned to keep it on the down low as long as she possibly could.
Image
Just when she thought she would be having a slow morning, another customer stepped inside, one that she had never seen before, not even around town. It wasn't very often they had newcomers around here, but for some reason newcomers seem to be falling out of the sky around here.

When the male took a seat at the counter just a couple stools down from Trixie, she made her way over towards him. "Hi, welcome to Crimson Grove. Is there anything on the menu that interests you?" she questioned, trying her best to be as polite as possible. She didn't want to scare off a new customer.

As she stood there, welcoming the male, she glanced over at Gretel, finding that she was doing pretty okay for her first day. Ruby just hoped that nothing big would happen today, she wasn't sure if Gretel would be able to handle that. At times a small fight would break out at the diner, she just wished her customer's could leave their drama out on the streets and not bring it inside, but of course she knew that was never going to be possible.

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.

Dawn's light trickled over the empty, pristine white sheets of Dr. Weaver's room. His bed was empty. Down the hand-sculpted staircase, past the extravagant artworks and Ming vases, at the door in a beaver-skin trenchcoat, stood the doctor. He adjusted his coat to rest on his shoulders better and looked up to the window above his door. The sun had just begun to peak over the hills. A soft smile painted his face, a genuine smile. An Operatic piece was floating through his head as he tossed his cane from the umbrella rack and caught it all in one seamless movement.

His long fingers turned the white-gold knob slowly, it was early enough that he'd have time regardless of his speed. He simply liked to let the mornings wash over him. Extending his right leg he began his stride down the dark staircase that led up to his manor. He stopped briefly to wave good-morning to his gardener. Usually he would do it himself, but he had been very busy at the hospital lately. Especially since Adelaide hadn't woken up yet. It had been months now. The gardener was an older fellow, his family needed the money to put his son through school. Remus thought their last name was something Italian-esque.

He made it to the wrought-iron gates that held the sculpted image of a serpent, peacefully wrapped around a woman, his chosen symbol. Yes, these early morning strolls to the main-town always made him very happy. His butler had asked if he wanted the Bugatti brought around, Remus had of course declined. He had a feeling that he needed to stop by the diner on his way to work today. Which wasn't very far so he had chosen to walk. He needed the exercise after-all.

It took him about an hour to reach the diner and once he arrived there, there were already a few early-risers filtering in. Of course Ruby was already there, it was her diner. As he walked in he made sure his warm smile was present. He spotted a familiar face, a boyish one but familiar all the same. He took a seat beside the boy and smiled at him as a form of greeting before speaking up to Ruby, who at the time seemed to be taking the order of this new customer. Remus had of course been here many times, he was the town's doctor, he needed to know everyone in town. Or at least have some idea. He took pride in his knowledge of the people here, he never forgot a face. Or a promise made.

"Why good morning Miss Hood, how is your father doing?" He asked as he set his cane down beside him. "Oh, I'll take a coffee, if you don't mind." He added, he needed to purchase something here or Ruby got antsy. However a coffee was quite trivial in means of money to Remus. He did have a practically never-ending supply. Turning to the boy next to him Remus offered his welcoming grin.

"Peter, correct? I've been waiting for you to arrive! Thank goodness you arrived safely." Of course Remus recalled him, he owed him a favor.

I think it's time my favorite nephew came home.

"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.

Before Trixie got her answer from the newcomer, the doctor came in and sat beside him. "Peter, correct? I've been waiting for you to arrive! Thank goodness you arrived safely." Peter?! No. No, it couldn't be. He was much too old. She was just too used to associating that name with one person in particular. She took a sip out of the newly arrived tea to steady herself a bit. Of course it wasn't Peter. She would have recognised him. "Thank you!" she said as Ruby put the pancakes down in front of her.

She glanced up as the door opened again and grinned. In walked Jack Frost, her favourite person in the world. As he held his arms out for a hug, she scrambled down off of the stool and wrapped her arms around him tightly. She'd never minded the cold that came with hugging him. It was only as she let go that she realised how long it had been since she'd seen him... and that he was in his night form. That wasn't right, the sun was well and truly up now. Before she could ask any questions, he spoke, whispering to her. His breath was cold, but she was so used to it that she didn't flinch.

"Listen girly. I've only come by for a short time and then I have to go again. I only came to give you this." She frowned at him, but that soon faded into a look of fascination at the glowing blue pixie dust. She hadn't known it turned that colour when it was frozen. it was pretty. "It will thaw soon, don't worry. I thought you'd like it and let me tell you. That wasn't easy to find. Oh right, then there was this." Her frown returned briefly, until she took the wand from him. At first, she thought it was made of ice due to its temperature. But as it warmed in her hand and still didn't thaw, she realised that it was a proper wand. Confusion furrowed her brow. "Now this was given to me to give to you. I can't really say who I got it from, but they said when the time comes, you'll need it. It was odd, but whatever. I didn't bother asking anything because the person left before I could."

Trixie opened her mouth to say something, but before she could get a word in edgeways, there was a howl that sent an entirely different kind of shivers down her spine. There was a clatter as Ruby put something down rather hard, but then Jack was over, putting a hand on her shoulder. Trixie swallowed, refusing to acknowledge the jealousy that she could feel bubbling in the pit of her stomach. And then Jack was going as quickly as he came, calling out his pet name for her as he left. She turned back in to her food, studying the wand carefully. It was only as Ruby spoke again that she was jolted out of her reverie. "What was that about?" She hesitated, but before she answered, Ruby whispered a warning about Flynn and Gold. She nodded, leaving the pixie dust around her neck and putting the wand into her backpack. The pixie dust would be safe around her neck, and she sat the backpack on her lap as she started to eat.

The door opened yet again- the diner really was busy this morning. But the woman who walked in was unfamiliar. Trixie immediately became uneasy, and watched her sit a few seats away. She could smell the expensive perfume and gin from her seat, but that wasn't what was making her uncomfortable. That woman had magic. Bad magic. Trixie eyed the dogs cautiously. They looked like the type to bite- and especially at fairies. She scanned the diner, wanting to warn Ruby and Gretel, but Ruby was serving another group that had just entered, and Gretel had already been snared by the woman. She picked up her tea and pancakes and moved a bit closer to the woman, resisting the temptation to hold her breath.

"Sorry, but I couldn't help overhearing. My name's Trixie, I live in town. I'd certainly love to come to your... soiree. But you'll have to excuse me, I'm a little nervous around dogs," she said, shrugging a little and eying the dogs cautiously. She wasn't usually, but she was nervous around those dogs. If she could sneak some pixie dust out of her bag, she could deal with them, but she wasn't taking any chances with this woman. She had no interest in going to the party, but certainly wanted to check her out. See if she could find her intentions.

"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.

Hansel headed to the store first. Pulling out his little shopping list, he lazily wandered up and down the aisles and until had most the stuff on his list, which he decided was close enough. Leaving the store, his arms now full of grocery bags he decided to head to the dinner and check up on Gretel at her first day of work. That is if Ruby hadn't decided to fire Gretel yet. Which Hansel knew was quite likely given Gretel's temperamental nature. She was bound to get grumpy with a customer eventually.

Walking past the store though, he looked in through the window and saw how busy the little diner was. Deciding it was probably best not to bother Gretel whilst it was so busy, he just gave her a little wave through the window. Though his smile turned a scowl when he saw she was currently taking an order from Flynn. Hansel personally didn't mind the guy, but didn't like the idea of Gretel being so cosy with a thief. He had been hoping this job would leave her with less time to hang out with Flynn, but it seemed the other way around.

Continuing past the diner, in a slightly worse mood than before, he decided he might as well just head back to the Nursing Home. Clearly Gretel didn't need him and his arms were starting to get a little sore from holding the bags of groceries. That was when he looked up and saw someone whizzing towards him on a bike. Of course he would have recognised that head of hair anywhere. "Slow down speed racer!" Hansel called out to Ariel as he flagged her down. "What are you running from?" He asked jokingly, referring to her very fast pace.

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.

"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.

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.
