a character in “Knight Cafe”, as played by Candy_

Description

Image





Image





Image

Role: Waiter Duty





Image
Age: 21
Gender: Female
Height: 5'1
Eyes: Brown/Amber
Hair: Light Blonde/Yellow
Image
Weight: 124





Image
Personality:
She's two different people, as she sees it - her ''waitress'' personality, when she's at work, and her home side.
When she's at work, she tries her best to be the sweetest she can. From how she was raised, she finds it hard, but only for a few moments - when Eledise sees someone smiling, she knows her personality is worth the trouble, and tries her best to continue with it. She can be strict, though, when it's necessary - if she needs something, she'll find a way to get it. She rarely has the need for such force, and thus is content without it.
At home, she's shy and relaxed. More so, she is reserved; she lives alone with her dog, and doesn't talk much because of it.

History/Bio:
Her mother was a drunkard, and her father abusive. She ran away from home at age 16, when she had a job, and lived on her own - as she does now. Eledise doesn't regret a moment of it, only that she had to wait so long. Her dog, Þórrinn, is an Irish Wolfhound she found living on the streets. He followed her home one day, and so he stayed, growing in size over the period of a few months. He remains her only companion, and her best friend, until she arrives at the Café.




So begins...

"You ready for school Crow?" Raven was in the kitchen cooking up some fried rice with eggs and sausage in his apron and slippers. He was all dressed up for work and nearly ready to go, just had to take care of Corvus first.

Soft giggles came up from behind Raven's back side and started to hug his waist. "Good morning!"

Laughing Raven patted Corvus's hands."Go sit down breakfast is ready." Corvus slid into his seat and started to eat while Raven now stood by the counters sipping on his morning black coffee. "Have you slept well?"

"Mhm!" Corvus smiled with a mouth full of food nearly almost done eating.

Once Raven was done making Corvus's lunch, the clock chimed letting them know it was time for Corvus to head out and Raven to open shop. Corvus jumped up quickly drinking his juice just before running up to Raven and hugging him tightly taking his lunch. "See you at the Cafe!" Corvus waved smiling big and left, running off to catch the bus.

Raven smiled and waved as he left the house. With a sign after Corvus left Raven washed the dishes and took the keys off the table, heading down stairs and to the front where the Cafe was. Raven unlocked the doors and flipped the sign from closed to open. He still had another hour before his workers were to come in for work, giving him enough time to put up a ~Help Wanted~ sign in the window.

Raven's last worker quit before she was finally having her baby. So leaving him to look for a new staff member. He didn't like this part of the job, it meant he had to go through a lot of nit wits to find the right person to fit the Cafe's style. Not many people here can fit it so it only makes the job harder and more frustrating.

Raven went into the kitchen and over to the ice machine, starting to chip away at the ice for the daily needs. Just then the front bell to the door rang. Raven wiped his head with a rag and walked in up to the front.

A young miss and her lover walked in from the sunny day, her eyes were already on the sweets as her lover was staring straight at Raven. "Welcome to Knight Cafe." Raven greeted them with a smile as he wiped his hands. "Please sit anywhere you like."

"Oh my this place is so lovely dear." The young miss smiled as she whispered to him while looking around as the both sat down in the middle of the cafe.

"Mhm" He replied and pulled out his phone.

Ah so that's the type. Root Beer for him and a peach tea for her. He took note of it in his head and came back with the drinks. "Here you go ma'am." Raven smiled at her giving her the tea and him the rootbeer.

"Oh my how did you know!" She smiled so big taking the warm cup into her hands, sniffing the smell of the tea.

The man stared at the root beer and then looked up at the man. "I'd like coffee, please." Raven grinned at the man, he knew the man was showing off infront of his woman, but Raven had already gotten a coffee ready made just for him for he knew this would happen. "I guess if you really don't want it." He took the root beer as the man stared at the soda, but Raven took it away and placed a cup of coffee next to him. Along with some snacks to go along with their drinks.

A while after they talked and slowly sipped their drinks the man came up to the front and paid their bill. The man also eye balled Raven as he left the cafe, the look he gave off was of mere curiosity as Raven waved telling them to come back any time.

It was frustrating for Lauren. The jobs that are least desired give the financial stability, but when it comes to the enjoyable jobs, or the ones you dream of - you always have to have a back up plan. It was really nice that Lauren wanted to be a writer. It was really nice that she graduated with Literature. However, many people at her age were already living by themselves. Not that Lauren had any problems with living with her parents, but she hoped she would be independent in the near future, also finally giving the freedom to her mother and father.

Soon enough, Lauren stopped in front of the cafe. She carelessly opened the door, without noticing the sign yet. "Maybe I should order something and think." She tought. When she closed the door, the sign fell on the floor. Lauren picked it up and hanged it back on the door, still not noticing. "I really need to find a job soon, even if it's not the best paid! Some job. Something that can support me while I'm trying to succeed with writing books.". "E-excuse me.." Lauren slightly stuttered, when she approached Raven. Apparently, she already noticed that since it was very early, there weren't many customers in the cafe. "Erm... I would like a job... I mean..." She quickly corrected herself. "I would like a cola. I would like a job too, but... no need to bring you into my problems..." Lauren chuckled awkwardly at the end of her sentence.

Raven felt a little irritated at how much noise one girl could make by just walking in through the front door. To top it off at least she picked up the sign she dropped. He sighed and composed his face, before wanting to turn around and greet her.

Raven turned around as he dried a cup, polishing it now with a rag. He looked at her up and down as she spoke. She was cute and maybe he could use her to bring in some more customers. "E-excuse me.." Walking up closer to Raven shyly, you could tell. And from the racket she made already, careless pr a klutz. "Erm... I would like a job... I mean... I would like a cola. I would like a job too, but... no need to bring you into my problems..." Her laugh was a little awkward but at least she tried.

He put the up down and took a scoop of ice from the small tub beside him, filling the cup up halfway with ice. He then filled the cup up with cola adding just a few cherries to it, floating at the top. "Can you clean? Take orders and do this all while holding a smile to everyone to greet?" He asked as he folded back the neck of his shirt, undoing the first two buttons to it.

Taking the soda in his hands as he gestured her to a table by the window, and soon after helping her with her chair to sit down. He unbuttoned his vest on his uniform letting it open up as he sat down, leaning against the wall, as the light shined through his dark hair making it look a brownish color.

His eyes were locked with hers, with every word he spoke and his face was composed.

"Uuh, yes..." Lauren replied to his question. "W-why? Are you actually suggesting me a job?" She got nervously excited when this went trough her mind. She thanked for the gesture to the table and for the cola. "I-I can hold a few plates at the same time! Without dropping anything! I once did, but that was because I tripped on the cat, which is a completely unrelated story..." Lauren made a small pause. She started picking in her pockets, then her irises shrunk and her cheeks reddened. "I... uh..." She couldn't find a way to tell Raven. "Funny story!" She chuckled. "Alright, it's not funny at all..." Lauren took a deep breath. "I forgot my wallet."

Eledise woke up with Þórrinn's nose in her face. She scratched his ear, rolling onto her side, until she looked at her alarm clock. I... No, that's impossible! I set the alarm! She jumped out of bed, swiftly rolling her legs over the side of her dog, and nearly screamed with frustration. She had to replace the alarm clock still; she always meant to, but never found the money too. Not after Þórrinn got a bigger eating habit. Especially not with the bills... More bills, always more bills...

She picked up her uniform from the back of a chair, right in front of her mirror, and quickly threw her sleep clothes onto the chair. Her hair was a mess, she wanted to take a shower that morning, but there was no time now that she had slept in. And if I'm lucky, that's all I'll have to worry about, she thought, as she grabbed a hair brush off the mirror stand. Hopefully Raven doesn't decide to have my head for one of the customer's orders!

Eledise left her apartment as soon as her hair was brushed, making sure to spray a bit of perfume on herself, not bothering to pull her hair up or leave food for her dog. She knew he would find food elsewhere, even if it was a mess to clean up later, but she didn't have the time for that.

She arrived at the Café in a few minutes, where it was a block away, and immediately went to find Raven. She had to at least try to explain... And hope that he wouldn't hate her.

Benjamin nods and begins to wipe his hands on the hem of his apron as he watches Lauren gathering the plates. "My name's Benjamin, but you can call me Ben, or Benny, whatever really. I'll know who you're talking about anyway." He says as he lets the hem of the apron fall back down and moves over to the sink. There weren't alot of dishes dirty yet but he liked to keep things clean and out of the way, so he often washed dishes between filling orders. It kept things tidy and gave him something to do when he wasn't cooking and when Amara wasn't around to talk to.

Just as he puts the last plate in the drying rack the boss walks through the door. Benjamin turns to face him, drying his hands off as he listens to Raven speak. Was it just him or did the boss look a little under the weather?

"Sure thing. Take your time, I can manage things while you're away." Benjamin says with a nod. "And I'll keep them from giving Lauren a hard time if I can. Tell Crow I said hi and I'll have his slice of cake and milk waiting on him!" He calls the last part out as his boss walks though the back door and out into the street. "At least it looks like a nice day out there, maybe some fresh air will do him some good."

With everything put away Benjamin goes to open the door so he can go out and check on things when Lauren comes through the door with another set of orders. He holds the door open for a moment longer and looks the crowd over. Everything seemed to be going alright, and hopefully the rest of the staff would show up soon. "Sure thing. Buy hey, listen, the boss stepped out for a minute and left me in charge. Just let me know if there's any trouble out there alright? Those pizzas will take a little while." Benjamin says, stepping back into the kitchen, getting out the beer first then starting on the pizza. He'd save the sushi for last.

The pizzas were in the oven and everything else was either on the way to the tables or already there, so Benjamin steps out into the cafe proper, standing just to the side of the kitchen door, hands in his apron pockets as he looks the place over. When he sees Eledice entering he raises a hand and gives her a wave in greeting. She was a bit late, but Raven hadn't said anything about it before leaving, so he wouldn't give her a hard time about it. As if he would anyway. Before he can say anything a man in a business suit walks in and after he takes a seat Benjamin retires back to the kitchen to make him a bowl of beef stew. He also needed to check on the pizzas, which he was just doing when Amara came in, asking for breakfast.

"It's already time for lunch, why-" Benjamin was cut off as the woman disappeared back out the door.

With a sigh and a shake of his head he takes the pizzas out, finishes getting the ready, then starts on the stew and something for Amara. He had no idea how Raven managed to run this place as smoothly as he did. It was like as soon as he left everything started piling up.

"It's already time for lunch, why-" Eledise let the door swing closed after herself, staring around. She slowly turned in a circle, squinting her eyes against the sunlight - Maybe I should buy those sunglasses - before turning her eyes back down to the ground. "I guess he's gone already!" she sighed, almost expecting a reply, before opening the door and wandering back into the kitchen.

Eledise slid into a seat, leaning her chin on her arms, and looked up at Benjamin. "I.. Well, I hope I wasn't interrupting anything..." she began, but sighed, looking down at her fingers. She turned her gaze back up at him. "I'm late, and I don't know what to do about it. You wouldn't happen to know where Raven went, would you?"

She chewed nervously at the inside of her cheek, digging her nails slightly into her skin.

It's past noon, I'm already going insane, and now I've interrupted the cook. Great. Life can't get any easier.

Taken a long deep breath Raven decided to walk to Corvus's school today. For some reason though, he felt like his body was drained down. So instead he got the Car and drove off to the school. Not like the school was that far, but he couldn't bring himself to walk that long today.

"The heck..." He mumbled to himself. He was feeling fine this morning and now it hit him fast.

Now pulling up to the school Raven waited quietly, trying to compose himself. He took another deep steady breath and got out, leaning against the care, he slipped on some shades and removed his vest, throwing into the car. With the vest on, shades on and shirt partly unbutton he looked like just any old regular business man.

The teachers and students all started to come out of school slowly, Raven glanced through his shades to see where Corvus was. One of the teachers spotted Raven and smiled brightly walking up to him.

"Good afternoon Mr.Knight." She greeted him as fallowed by another teacher coming over with her. Not to say the teacher was ugly, but he just didn't find interest in a 35 year old woman, nor did he find interest in the other one who was 40. Not to bad looking for their age, but that was a bit much.

So he did what he normally did and smiled at them greeting them back. "Hello Young ladies, you look as dashing as ever, as always." His charming smile came out as he kissed the back of their hands with light chuckles. Only making them blush and giggle. He thought it was a bit cute that women their age could still do that.

"Oh my Mr. Knight, sweet on us little old lady are we know." The eldest one giggled and touched her cheek.

"Their is something I have to speak to you about. It's Corvus." The younger one spoke with a worry look.

"Crow? Is he alright?" He tried to ask calmly but the worry look on her face bothered him slightly.

"Oh no, Mr, Knight. Corvus is just fine, it's just, he has anger issues. And well today he got into another fight." She sighed. "If he keeps this up we might have to suspended him again."

Raven sighed and touched his forehead. "Did you ever think that maybe it wasn't his fault? Should look more into it before pointing fingers. If there is anything about us Knight folk, we always have a reason." His voice was a bit off, he tried his best to hold back his temper.

"Oh my, we are very sorry Mr. Knight, we will look more into it." She bowed at him embarrassed and quickly walked off with the other teach.

Just when Raven was about to sigh. "RAVEN!!!" Corvus jumped out of no where and pounced on Raven hugging him tightly.

Smiling gently Raven hugged his head. "Alright, let's get going. I have to get back to work and as your punishment for a fight in school, you are going to be helping Ben take out the trash and whatever else he needs."

"Aww man! The teacher beat me to you already?!" He sulked and let go getting into the car. "I couldn't help it! They kept calling me cute and wanting to dress me like a girl! So I just threw a few hard swings and broke their noses." Corvus shrugged like it was nothing and looked out the car window.

Sighing Raven got in the car and drove off. "Maybe you didn't have to take it that far, I know it can be annoying, but that is no reason to break someone's nose." He ruffled Corvus's hair and smiled at him. "Cheer up Okay?"

Corvus blushed at Raven patting his head and sigh in defeat.

When they reached the café/home Raven told Corvus to go wash up and put on his Café uniform and meet him at the Café. As soon as the kid was out of sight, Raven lit up a cigarette. And walked across the street from the Café. The Café was located on a bridge at the edge of the ocean, so sometimes Raven would hang out over their with a lit cig and relax a bit.

"Hey, don't sweat it. The boss just went to pick up Crow, should be back any minute now. And things have been pretty quiet, so you shouldn't be in too much trouble for getting her late." Benjamin says, peering into the pot as the stew begins to boil. After it comes to a boil he adds a few more ingredients then turns the heat down before turning to face Eledise. "Oh yeah, we got a new waitress too. Think she said her name was Lauren. Far as I can tell she came in for a drink and the boss ended up giving her a job, not sure how that worked out."

He gives Eledise a smile, then turns back to start work on something for Amara. She was always turning up whenever she felt like it, wanting him to cook her something. Not that he would complain about it. Benjamin enjoyed cooking, and was hoping to one day maybe run his own restaurant. Of course that would be a long, long day off. He couldn't even afford his own apartment right now, let alone his own business. For now he was happy to be working in Knight Cafe. Even if he did have to deal with a bunch of odd co-workers.

"Eledise, think you could take some of these orders out to the table? Things are getting a little busy out there it seems." Benjamin says as he looks out the order window and sees a few more people walking through the door. "I hope the boss gets back soon. I'm going to go check on things."

After taking a moment to put the beef stew in a bowl and make sure nothing would set fire while he was away, Benjamin wipes his hands on his apron and steps out into the cafe proper. Another couple had walked into the cafe. Walking over to them he greets them warmly and helps them find a seat. With that taken care of he chats with them for a moment before going over to the counter in the back and preparing a glass of sweet tea and a root beer float. After handing the couple their drinks he gives them a smile before heading back into the kitchen.

"Hey, don't sweat it. The boss just went to pick up Crow, should be back any minute now. And things have been pretty quiet, so you shouldn't be in too much trouble for getting her late." Eledise almost hugged Benjamin, she was so relieved. That's it, then. Tonight, I'll pick up a new alarm clock.. I can't go through this again.

"Oh yeah, we got a new waitress too. Think she said her name was Lauren. Far as I can tell she came in for a drink and the boss ended up giving her a job, not sure how that worked out."

"Really, now? Well, about time a new one showed up... Almost thinking I'd have to do her work, too, with Amara." She scoffed, shaking her head softly. It was amazing that they had gotten someone, but now, Eledise could only hope she would last a while.

She started to scratch at her nails, picking at tarnished blue paint, when Benjamin asked her to take the orders out of the kitchen. "Oh, sure! No problemo, mi amigo." She picked them up carefully, considering why she had used her bad spanish - two classes in high school, and all I learned was how to piss off my friends - and wandered out of the kitchen.

"We can only hope! He may even be back, right now, and we just don't know it." She stepped gracefully over the floor, almost leaning down to pull her skirt down once more, and placed the plates at a table with a smile. "Hope you enjoy everything! Just shout if you need anything else."

Eledise walked away, pulling at her skirt, and decided to search for Lauren. If only to say 'hello'.

Raven put out his cigarette and started to walk back to the car, reaching inside to grab his vest he slipped it around and slipped it on. Buttoning every button up and fixes his shirt, but leaving the first three buttons open. He rolled up his sleeves and walked back inside, taking a look around. Everyone was here and the places was packed, just as he thought it would be.

He walked to where Ben was and waved his hand so Ben took noticed. He walked back and behind the bar taking over the cash register, letting people pay and leave. Raven didn't say anything to them as they left he just nodded and kept quiet. He looked around to see what everyone was doing, but he didn't move from behind the register.

Raven felt that if he was going to talk he was going to say something rude so he didn't say a thing. He turned around with his back to the Café, polishing cups and making drinks for people.

Eledise almost screamed with frustration. She couldn't find Lauren, let alone anyone she really wanted to speak to; it was as if her entire world had dropped off and was in shambles. As if the lion ate the crow.

She shook her head, letting her shake in the mild wind she created with her hands, and looked around. She saw Raven behind the counter, and smiled to herself, though it was far past fake; he was probably the last person she wanted to speak to.

And as if I really have a choice. Does the hawk ask the mouse for permission to eat it?

She glanced in the mirror quickly, blinking starkly at the woman who stared back. Her hair was a mess, her brown eyes were shaking, and almost on the point of tears. She had never thought it possible to look like such a mess, up until this point, and hoped that it would never happen.

Eledise tugged on the ribbon around her neck, giving a last look towards Raven before she started walking towards him. She quickly stopped, realising that he was probably in the mood of not talking to her. And the last thing she wanted was to create a scene at the cafe.

"Fine! I won't. I won't speak to him until after work, when the headsman gets employed once more." She shook her head softly, smiling at a customer who gave her a curious stare, and scurried off of the floor into the kitchen. The last thing she definitely did not need was a scene.

In the middle of filling ups and handing them out, he caught notice of people waiting to pay for their food. Jumping to it, Raven moved swiftly around the tables and smoothly turned around behind the bar. It seemed as if he was dancing around. He went through taking peoples money and giving out their change. Some people annoyed him but he sucked it up and gave them all fake smiles, telling them to come back again sometime.

He noticed a little girl by herself looking around curiously. She slowly walked into the café with a little change pouch. This made Raven slightly in a better mood. His smile became nowhere fake as he squatted down and spoke softly to the little girl. "Anything you need help with?"

She looked up at him with wide eyes and a blush busted out on her cheeks. "Whoa mister! You sure are pretty!" Her voice was high pitched and yet somehow cute.

Raven laughed and patted her head as her cheeks became red while she bit her lip. "Thank you, sweet heart. You're very lovely yourself."

She giggled and smiled at him. "Can I have one of your famous sodas?!" She asked excited. "I only have tree(Three) dollars though."

"Sure, I think I can do something like that for you." He stood up and she looked surprise at how much taller he was compared to her, her eyes were like looking at a god or an angel. He took her and placed her by the table near the bar and walked off to go make her drink.

Raven noticed Eledise walking towards him, but it seemed she was in her own little word. Noticing quiet a few things wrong with her today, top it off she was a bit late for what. Something must have happened. With a wondering mind, he became annoyed with thinking.

"Eledi!" He yelled, seemingly ticked off, mostly at himself, at the same time of making the little girl a strawberry soda with vanilla ice cream at the bottom of it and whipped cream on the top.

Before Eledise could walk into the kitchen, she heard her name being yelled, and froze. "Eledise!" She turned her head slightly, trying to imagine who could be calling her name in such a tone, though she very well knew that it was Raven.

And for what? So, I approached him, and... I kinda scared myself off... Well, I guess he does have a reason, then.

She turned herself all the way around, trying to smile pleasantly, though her hands were shaking as she grasped her skirt to try and keep it less visible. It was a reluctant walk to the counter, each step made her more and more unsure, until she was as close to Raven as she could manage.

"...Yes, sir?" she whispered, in an unfortunately high pitch that she rarely managed to do.

Benjamin was only in the kitchen for a short time before heading back out onto the floor to tend to the customers. This really wasn't something he was used to, though he had stepped in for Raven on occasion. Still he was slow at the register, and he lacked the same skill the boss had with being able to tell what people wanted. Although he would never admit it to his boss, on occasion he would become stumped and simply make the customer whatever they asked for. Things usually seemed to work out for the best in the end though.

Still behind the counter, making a drink for one of the customer, Benjamin looks up to see Raven entering the cafe. With a sigh he returns the wave, then finished the drink and steps out from behind the counter to give it to the waiting customer. Since the boss was back he decides to return to his rightful place in the kitchen.

Benjamin had never really been a people person. Sure, if someone came up to him he could hold a conversation, but in a crowd he was lost. Out on the floor of the cafe he barely ever spoke a word aside from the required thank yous and your're welcomes and so on. He certainly felt more comfortable out of the spotlight, in the kitchen, with his ingredients and tools. And he was in the middle of cleaning some of the aforementioned tools when he hears a shout from the front of the cafe. Flinching a bit, he lays down a washcloth and a knife he'd been cleaning and begins wiping his hands off as he walks over to look out the order window.

"Poor girl. Late for work and she managed to annoy the boss." Benjamin says, shaking his head a little.

Raven sighed and bent down to her ear with his hand on her shoulder. "Go take a ten minute break, clean yourself up and come back after you eaten."

He gave her a quick smile, taking her café note pad and turned back to the little girl giving her the soda she wanted.

"Hey Ben!" Raven leaned over to look at the kitchen window. "Makes some cookies, something that says cute for tomorrow." He whipped his hands on his rag he had and walked over to the back of the café talking to a few people who just came in and sat down.

Smiling and laughing he turned and walked back to the little girl who was humming and swinging her legs. "Isn't it about time you headed home, your parents might be worried." He patted her head helping her out of the seat.

She pouted and looked up at him. "Can't I stay here with you!?"

He dent over and smiled at her. "I tell you what, you can come back here any time to visit me, but make sure you get home safely, alright?"

Her smile was big and bright. "Mhm! Okay! Bye, bye mister!" she waved dancing out the door.

He shook his head and looked at the time, it was nearly 7pm, almost closing time. He rubbed his hair line by his forehead and looked around, turning the open sign to close.

"Go take a ten minute break, clean yourself up and come back after you eaten." She managed not to jump when he touched her shoulder, but nodded, reluctantly stepping back with a quick curtsey.

Eledise tugged on a strand of her hair, looking around herself, before going on a search to find her purse. She had nothing against Raven, but she felt that his kindness was amiss. Not that I'm going to complain, but... Oh, well, who am I to invade?

She found her mangled, brown-leathered excuse of a purse, and pulled it over her shoulder before turning back towards the front entrance. A small girl ran out, and she smiled, knowing that she would be happy from being here. But then Eledise saw Raven turning the sign to 'closed', and paused slightly.

"Do you, uh... Still want me to come back?" She looked at the ground, hoping it wasn't a stupid question. "I mean, seeing as we're closing now..."

"Do you, uh... Still want me to come back?...I mean, seeing as we're closing now..." Eledise asked Raven.

"No, I thought closing up early is best, we can't have our workers, working in a bad bood or an off day now can we?" He smiled and shooed her away with his hand. "Go on take care of yourself, come back tomorrow in a better sight."

He turned around and let out the last of the people from his café, locking the from door behind them and pulling down the curtain to the door window.

He bent his arm over his head and stretched his body. It was a tiring day and he wondered about Corvus and id he was okay. Seeing as he didn't come down to the café today.

He sat down at the table after closing all the windows and their curtains. Pulling out the money from the cash register he started to count it one by one.

"No, I thought closing up early is best, we can't have our workers, working in a bad bood or an off day now can we?" She frowned, opening her mouth to reply, to tell him that she was sorry - and not just because it was either the decent thing to say, or that she should, but because she really felt horrid for her morning.

Eledise bowed to him, hurrying out of the Café with purse in hand. She tossed it over her shoulder, setting off at a quick jog towards her apartment, trying to not think about her day. It was hard, in some respects, but far from impossible; once she was inside her apartment, petting Þórrinn, she realised she had made it.

"Come on, then. We'll take you for a run, get some more food, and then go get a new alarm clock..." Eledise's words trailed off, as she stared at a painting of her family. She never knew why she had actually kept it, but it had been hanging on the wall since she was sixteen. And looked no worse for wear.

Þórrinn jumped up on her leg, and she scratched his ear again, turning around to leave the apartment. "Let's go. It'll be good for both of us to get out."

Lauren smiled at Amara's greeting and Ben's introduction. It seemed like she would find friends quickly. So far there weren't any problems.

The owner went out for a while, and Ben was temporary in charge, but that didn't keep Lauren from doing her job. Actually, something else did.

After serving the last orders she gave to Ben, Lauren went to the bathroom. A few minutes later she finished washing her hands. The following event was too ridiculous even for a sitcom character, but it happened to Lauren - she managed to slip on a small puddle and fall backwards, which caused her to lose her consciousness.

Lauren was slowly opening her eyes. Suddenly, the stress hit her and she got up and went out of the bathroom with the speed of a bullet. What has she done? Fainting and not doing her job properly on her first day! What made it worse was the fact that she couldn't see anyone. Apparently, it was closed. She was locked inside the cafe.
"This can't get any worse!" Lauren sat on the floor with her back against the door, and just in that moment her nose started bleeding.
