Something, probably the universe or whatever other greater force, told Junsoo to feel some sort of relief that Andre's attention was taken by someone else and the topic was averted all together. Knowing Dre, he would have gotten a kick out of watching him transform into the reddest fruit in existence, which would not have been that difficult considering he was already halfway there. He felt himself relax significantly as Andre's gaze was taken off of him and placed on the incoming customer. Luke...or something. Technically, according to Oscar, June should not use his cell phone while on the job and focus the entirety of his attention on the customers. Luckily, Oscar was not present at the moment and Andre never seemed to be a stickler about.

Taking advantage of the momentary pause in the flow of orders, Junsoo pulled the device out from his pocket. Both Jo's and Sydney's messages confirmed exactly what he'd feared. He bit his lower lip while pandering on what to respond to Sydney. As casually as she appeared to be taking this over text message, June was certain that the rumors alone were taking a toll on hear. He didn't dare to imagine if she were to come face to face with the root of the problem.

To: Syd
MSG: I'm sorry Syd but...for everyone's sake, I hope it's not true.


One didn't need to be a genius, only know Sydney well enough to know that she was the only one that was somewhat excited by the news. If he didn't already know the rest of the pack felt the same amount of excitement about Albrecht coming back, which is to say none at all, Jo's message would have confirmed it.

To: Jo <3
MSG 1: Yeah I heard...I don't like where this is headed.
MSG 2: I'll be getting off work soon, don't you dare give my treat to anyone else!


Instead of pocketing his phone, he placed it on the counter between him and Andre, making it easier to see the messages without needing to stop whatever it is he was doing. Maybe he was finished responding, but he thought it best to keep it close in case something came up. Which, considering the circumstances and the heavy tension flowing through the supernatural streets at the moment, something was bound to happen eventually. Heaven forbid that did not include someone from the pack getting seriously hurt. But it wasn't the time to think about that now. June had been hired by Oscar and Andre for being a diligent worker and that's what he should be focusing on now. Another regular customer came in as June reached for the Gin bottle near Andre, already knowing what the man would be ordering. The usual flirting came with it, except this time it was a welcomed distraction from everything going on around him. He even let out a hearty laugh at the man's teasing, the sound of it filling the bar area. It wasn't until the customer left and Axel's name came scrolling across his phone screen with a message directed to the entire pack, that Junsoo realized there was no possible way of avoiding this any more. It seemed he would have to owe Andre for leaving work earlier than expected.

"How upset would you be if I left early today?" Junsoo asked as sweetly as possible, making sure to wait until Luke was gone instead of interrupting the conversation. "Something really important came up." his dark almond eyes locked with Dre's and for a moment he forgot he was a supernatural creature because the man's presence made him feel so...tiny in comparison. Before the man could answer he added. "I'll make up for it however you want."

Her head was beginning to hurt because she felt really overwhelmed right about now. She sighed softly to herself and raised her fingers up to rub her temples, her eyes fluttered back over towards her phone as it chimed. Sydney waltzed over to grab her phone and saw Poppy's name stroll across the screen. 'Oh, great. What now?' She thought to herself with an eye roll after reading Poppy's message, which she began to type a reply to.

To: Poppy
Is today pick on Sydney day or something?


She hit send and placed her phone back on the counter top, trying her best to form a smile among her lips as a few more customers rolled inside. Luckily, some of the other employees were now handling the floor so that she could be beside Axel and Johanna for a little while longer. Sydney's eyes averted over towards Ophelia whenever she finally responded towards her about the water. She made a face, of course and went ahead to gather Ophelia's order, walking away momentarily.

Sydney placed the coffee cake in front of Ophelia, along with a fork and spoon then placed a mug beside it, pouring some coffee inside of the mug. "I hope you enjoy." She said then sat the coffee pot down back in place. Her eyes then went towards Valerie as she came into the diner and offered her a wave. She then saw Ivan, yet another vampire, walked in and went over to sit beside Valerie. She could not help but make a slight face towards him that signified her disgust for him.

Whenever Axel answered her questions, she looked at him. Sydney wondered to herself if Albrecht was actually back to regain some type of control over the pack once again. Her eyes cut towards Johanna as she could feel that she is worried about her. Sydney could not help but go over towards her, resting her hand on top of hers. "No need to worry about me. Both of you. I can handle myself." She had no choice but to remain strong in front of the alpha male and a member of the pack. Once Axel said that he needed to call a meeting and now, she did not know how to feel.

Every single time the door opened, she kept on looking over to see if the so called trouble that Poppy referred to had entered the premises. Her phone chimed once more and she walked over towards it, reading the message sent from June and did not bother to response since he was probably on his way towards the diner anyway. Sydney really had hoped that Albrecht had not returned to town because if he did, she certainly had some explicit words for him.

"Well, I guess all we do now is wait." Sydney muttered towards Johanna and Axel as she decided that she needed to take her mind off of things and needed some fresh air. "I need to step outside for a moment. Johanna, would you care to join me? I really need some girl talk right about now." She practically pleaded towards Johanna, walking towards the back and waving for Johanna to follow her out of the backdoor.

ImageJohanna held on to the small box that contained June's treat as she watched her alphas stroll about their business. She could see Syd getting more and more agitated with the situation as the texts came rolling in. It didn't help that their diner was filling with bloodsuckers...er...vampires. The idea to swipe Syd's phone and do...something with it crossed her mind. Hide it so she wouldn't be disturbed anymore or even just turning the sound or phone off. But in the end, Johanna's sense of privacy and the possibility that she wouldn't want anyone touching her stuff, even if she was trying to help, won out and Johanna just stood and waited.

Her own phone buzzed twice in her back pocket. She slipped it out and looked at the short preview before unlocking her phone and reading the full text.

From: Junie-
MSG 1: Yeah I heard...I don't like where this is headed.
MSG 2: I'll be getting off work soon, don't you dare give my treat to anyone else!


She found herself smiling softly at the response. June was always happy to try her treats and she liked to bake for him. She typed back a quick response:

To: Junie-
I wouldn't dream of robbing my best customer of the chance to try an exclusive treat from Johanna's personal recipes.


She had thought about adding a joke, but a good one didn't come so instead she added a winking emoji to the end and hit send. Once her attention was back in the diner, she noticed Syd making her way to the back, her eyes boring into Johanna as if trying to send a message telepathically. She knew full well what that look meant. Of course, it was then followed with an invitation to join her in the back and Johanna nodded her agreement to follow. She thought about leaving the treat on the counter for June, but she wanted to see the look on his face when he tried it so she took it with her. Axel would let them know when he had arrived. She slipped behind the counter and into the back. "What's up, Syd? I mean besides the obvious."

Valerie Alastair
faerie - #dc143c
Valerie took a seat on the booth, putting her bags on the floor. From what the faerie could see, with Sydney and Axel preoccupied with their own problems, she would not be getting that tea anytime soon. But no matter, she had eaten and her pains could be sedated for a while longer. Plus, she would be going out tonight. That gave her enough time to converse with the vampires that had gathered. Her eyes flickered towards Ivan for a moment. She had seen him around, that was for sure, but she had spoken to Ember, who had been here for only half a year, possibly more times than she had seen the male. She supposed their circles just never mixed, but this might be a good situation to make the connection.

Her gaze turned back to Ember, who had just asked about her whereabouts. She was right, it was Saturday, Valerie's holy day for partying, where she could go to the city and get her dose of humans. In that way, faeries and vampires were similar-- they both relied more heavily on humans than the werewolf counterparts.

"I'm afraid humans by day are just not that... entertaining," Valerie said with a small smirk. "The best ones always come out at night. Liquor just seems to have that effect on them, you know? It's a shame you can't accompany me."

Valerie had never told anyone about her going out to "feast" on humans, of course. She had gone out clubbing with Poppy before, but her way of feeding was much more subtle than that of a vampire. A kiss would do and, if she controlled herself, no one around would even notice. The liquor helped with an impaired memory and the clubbing, well, it was just fun. Of course, the beneficiary effects for her did not come in full when she didn't go all the way, but she was alive now thanks to her life here and she couldn't risk it.

"It's a relief to know that I'm not the only one feeling this tension this tension," she said, turning to Ivan for a moment. "It definitely kills the family diner vibe."

"It seems like the werewolves are having a little get together..." said, looking over at Sydney, who was exiting the diner with a worried-looking werewolf behind her, "Probably not too happy to know that Albrecht is back."

Her comments were rather light, but she honestly was not happy with what she felt would go down. With Albrecht signing up as a candidate for the upcoming elections, it was clear he was ready to lead again. She didn't know how the werewolves felt about him, but she could only guess there was still resentment in their hearts. Plus, she enjoyed the peace and quiet she had found at Bellingstone. With the scandal of the mayor and what she would only guess would be a scandalous election, she was quite displeased that the unwelcomed visitor had chosen such a time to return.

With that, she let out a small sigh. "So, what have you been up to, love? she said, looking at Ember. "I can only guess you were trying to... cheer up Sydney and Axel during these stressful times?" she added with a small chuckle. No matter the situation present, Valerie was always amused by the vampire's mischiveous objectives. For her, it always managed to lighten up her day.

Andre continued to entertain Luke's venting, not particularly minding but knowing that on another day, he wouldn't even bother. Luckily, there were about two other customers that had sat on either side of the blonde, so Andre was able to semi-focus on getting them satisfied, making sure the food menus were available, but also listening to Luke. It was the same thing Poppy had once noted about the city, though she seemed far more pleased with it than the man before him. Bellingstone was a cute, almost trendy little place to come visit. You could take really attractive selfies down by any of the shops, but especially by any historical locations that held stock to the visitors. There were quaint coffee shops and the library was a beloved stop, though he was pretty sure the selfies there were probably frowned upon simply because it just wasn't the location for that. Hell, even nightlife was pretty damn good if he did say so himself. But in terms of living? You must be stuck here or really are something else to actually live in Bellingstone, and that mindset showed in how the people who lived in the city interacted with a person who came from Bellingstone. Poppy was well-adjusted. Her world had always been meant to include a much larger landscape; the type of people she was meant to interact with were always them, not people here. Luke wasn't Poppy. He was definitely a decent mathematician, that much was for certain. But even Andre had known that the guy's social skills weren't good enough to actually take dealing with that sort of unnecessary judgement in stride.

Luckily, June came up as the perfect distraction to stop Andre from saying something pessimistic or equally unhelpful, and Andre poured Luke another drink before turning his full attention to June. His brow furrowed just slightly as he observed the guy. June didn't seem to have anything necessarily wrong with his person, so at least Andre was assured on that front. "Yeah, sure thing. Nothing too stressful 'round here that I can't handle on my own," he replied casually, before inquiring, "You gonna be straight though? Anything I can help with?"
