History:
Seth grew up in a rather horrible life. Both of his parents were unemployed, the only way he was ever able to eat was when his mother got some time by standing on the corner of the streets, pretty much by being a prostitute. Of course his father knew all about what she was doing. He didn't like it in the least, but he knew it was the only way to make sure Seth was fed.

Upon becoming of age, he was walking in the streets and nearly fell over when his clock started. He tried to keep this from his parents as long as possible that day but the very second they found out about it. They forced him to spend it day in and day out in order to get food. Though his year had only lasted a week. After that week, it was back to doing all they could to get some time.

Seth's father died just a month ago and his mother ended up becoming highly depressed. All she ever seemed to do was sit around the house. She never goes outside, spends time with friends or anything. So Seth started looking around for a job and finally found one as a factory worker. It doesn't pay very much, but it's enough to keep the rent paid and to keep himself and his mother fed.

Dialogue Color: #ff0055 || Location: Cafe



Bianca sat outside in front of the book store, signing autographs for a bunch of fans, many of them were just flat out crazy and surprisingly a couple of them would give her free time. Most of the time she would pass up their offer, but they insisted so there was no way to get out of it. Bianca was never the kind of girl to just take it from people, especially the ones who needed it much, much more than she did.

As she sat there, signing autograph after autograph, she felt herself beginning to get dizzy. It was probably from being dehydrated. The last time she had something to drink was a couple hours ago and in this heat, that was never a good idea. With a soft sigh she stood to her feet, pausing the book signing. "I'm sorry everyone, but I need to take a break. The signing will resume in an hour," she stated before turning on her heels and hearing everyone clearly state that they weren't happy with it. But her health was a lot more important than signing books at the moment.

Bianca stepped into the book store, letting the owner know that she was taking a break and asked if she could look over her book stand. Afterwards, she grabbed her purse from behind the counter and headed out the door, pushing past all of the agitated fans to get to the cafe that was just down the street.

Upon arriving, she stepped inside and took a seat near a window before ordering herself a glass of sweet tea and a cheeseburger and fries.

Seth found himself running late for work as he ran down the street. He pushed passed many people, a couple of them turning back towards him yelling nasty things to him but he just ignored them. He couldn't believe he woke up late. Everything was beginning to go down the drain for him. If it weren't for him having to take care of his mother all night, he would have woken up early enough to get to work on time.

Once he reached the building, he paused and took a deep breath before stepping inside. He clocked in and got straight to work. This went on for about six hours before it was time for him to collect his time and head home. Seth stood in line waiting on his turn to get paid. He held his left arm under the scanner and waited for his time to be added before checking to see how much he had. Three days, twelve hours, five minutes, and four seconds. At least it was more than he left with, that's all that really mattered.

Seth headed through town, pushing past all of the Bianca Salazar fans who seemed to be a bit agitated before getting home. Honestly Seth had no idea what the point was about this book signing. But then again he had never read any of her books because he had a lot more important things to worry about. Not only did he have to take care of himself, he had to take care of his mother as well until she was able to find herself a job.

Upon arriving back home, he stepped inside, finding his mother laying of the couch. He immediately ran over to her and checked her time, thankfully finding that she was still alive. He gave her half of what he made today before beginning on his way through town. Seth needed a walk, a moment to clear his head, maybe even stop to see Vivienne sometime tonight. It's been a couple weeks since he had stopped by. Besides, she was probably wondering why he hadn't been answering his phone these past few days.

If it weren't for Vivienne being there for him, he wasn't sure how he was going to deal with his complicated times that he was going through. She's always been a good friend of his.

Dialogue Color:#8A0886 Location: Her Apartment/Cafe




It was about mid day when Vivienne returned home from her office, a couple of high powered clients and few pro bono ones had come in but nothing looked promising. It was the same ol' same ol', Cheating spouse? Check, Planning a murder? Duh!, Baby isnt mine prove it? Yes and double yes, the pro bono looked interesting but then again were they really any different then any of the others she had in the past? A couple of factory works had grouped together to complain that the company was shorting them on time, and of course the police wouldnt help out so they sent those poor men her way with a waiver of her fee. Basically saying that the city would pay, and they did alot better then clients normally did but it didnt help her migraine. Groaning, she looked about her cluttered apartment and after dropping her purse and keys into the ornamental bronze bowl by the door she kicked off her heels under the table it sat on in her entrance way and set to picking up. It didnt take long and soon it looked like a respectable person lived in the three bedroom apartment she rented for herself, between her own income and her trust from her parents she wasnt worried about running out of time though her every growing friendship with Seth was. Thinking about Seth, she made her way to her fridge as she pulled off her ever worn black leather jacket and tossed it on to a chair. Groaning out loud at the sight of her barren fridge she did a quick check of her pantry and found it too lacked anything edible, not only now did she have to worry about weather or not Seth would have enough time to take care of himself she now had to go face the mob of Bianca Salazar fans just to get to the grocery story. Which was not going to fun, as it normally wasnt great to begin with. She really should invest in a car.

Running into her room, Vivienne pulled off her sweaty black silk blouse and pulled on a black skin tight crop top and pulled a thin flowy lace top in a mixture of dark purple and violet. Slipped on her dark purple combat boots, snagging her jacket, purse, and keys on her way out she raced out the door. Hoping to make her trip quick so she could watch a slasher film and read a chapter from her newest Romance book before she had to settle in and work on paper work. Zig zagging her way through people she caught wind of coffee and muffins and even though it was well past breakfast time decided to stop into the Cafe before going grocery shopping, anyways going shopping for food hungry really wasnt the best idea. Ordering a oatmeal and cranberry muffin with a iced white chocolate latte she looked around for a seat and caught sight of Bianca Salazar sitting at a table with a sleazy looking man. No not sleazy, tired, broke, and most likely criminal. Sitting where she could watch them and the door Vivienne settled in to eat her snack. Pulling out her phone, Vivienne shot a quick text to Seth even though he probably wouldnt respond as he had been for the past couple of days, briefly she wondered if he had ran out of time some where but she pushed down her panic and sent the message letting him know that if he was planning on stopping by she was out but that he could go ahead and use the spare kept in the secret compartment on her door knocker and that she was at the cafe having a snack if he wanted to join.

Dialogue Color:#8A0886 Location: Cafe/Grocery Store




After the weird guy left and the musician stopped playing the cafe got boring, so sitting quietly going between the door and her phone Vivienne waited for Seth. Nothing came though, so after about twenty minutes of nothingness she stood threw away the half eaten muffin and headed to the store. The mobs of people caused her a brief pause but she kept going, purposefully bumping into the musician and dropping a bank handle with about three days worth of time into his pocket before quickly walking through the crowds in case he noticed while popping a cigarette into her mouth. Working her way to the store Vivienne kept her eyes on the passing faces hoping to see Seth, once the idea of him running out of time had entered her head she couldnt get rid of it and now she was stressing. Every time she saw someone close to his build she would get close only to be disappointed, fighting down her panic she entered the store and kept her head down.

Walking through the store Vivienne grabbed items off the shelves at random, boxed rice, potatoes, a roast, some carrots, onions, hamburger, tuna, boxed cake cookie and muffin mixs, a couple canned soups, lots of bread in all different types, cheese, canned chilis, milk, sodas, batteries because you never know when you might need them, candles, and several other items. After checking out with far too many bags, Vivienne started the struggle of walking five blocks back to her apartment. Head down watching her feet ta make sure she didnt trip and break any of the items on her bags.

Dialogue Color: #cc00ff || Location: Outside Vivienne's Apartment


Seth sighed as he finally came to his senses and made up his mind on stopping by to see Vivienne. He turned completely around and began heading back in the direction he was coming from. It hadn't taken very long to arrive at the door to the woman's home. Upon knocking a couple times he figured that she wasn't home. So instead of just leaving, he sat down on the stairs to her home and waited for her. She was probably freaking out about not hearing from him so he knew he would end up hearing a mouth full, but it was something he had to deal with.

As he sat there, he leaned his head back against her door and closed his eyes with his arms crossed against his chest. He figured that he mind as well try to get a nap. As he did so, he made sure to open his eyes every once in a while to keep an eye on anyone who would be interested in trying to steal the remainder of time he had left. Which honestly wasn't very much, but it's enough for him to live at least a couple more days.

Besides, a lot can be done in that bit of time.
