Corinne Belpin

"Life is beautiful in its simplicity."

0 · 281 views · located in Slice O' Heaven

a character in “Love Cafe”, as played by Runika

Description

ImageName: Corinne Belpin

Age Appearance:  20

Role:  Senior Angel/Head Waitress

Second Animal:  Black Dwarf Rabbit

Powers:  
1. Able to shift from rabbit to human form.  She is also able to retain some parts such as bunny ears and tail when in human form if so wished.
2. Sedation: When customers become too rowdy, she can sedate them.  However she only uses it to make them drowsy and less feisty.
3. Telepathy: Able to communicate with others within a short distance. Uses it inside the café when there isn’t enough time to run back and forth. Unfortunately, it’s a one way telephone line.  The receiver cannot reply.

Appearance: The senior angel is slim and of medium height.  She reaches about 5'5 and tends to wear heels to increase her apparent height.  Corinne has unusual purple colored hair that she thinks is a physical quality of herself she really likes.  Her hair is long and straight, and is quite easy to take care of.  She has a light complexion and on her face she has a pair of violet eyes.  Many believe that she wears purple circle lenses.   On each of her ears she has a single piercing that is occupied by a silver heart earring. Normally she is seen wearing her waitress uniform inside the café, but she does go out often in casual clothing. 

Personality: Corinne is an outgoing and friendly angel.  She likes to strike up conversations, but tries to avoid doing so in case customers aren’t in the mood to talk.  This particular angel likes to sleep the day away, but at the same time she hates to waste time.  So, in order to enjoy some down time, she takes breaks from the café to take a walk outside or sit under the shade of a tree.  After all, rest is not idleness. She likes simplicity.  Although she works in a Love Café, she wishes that love wasn’t so complicated sometimes.  

Bio: The café in her opinion is an interesting place.  She and Alex get along fine, and she has always seen him as her ‘boss'. Because she respects and looks up to him, she only called him 'Boss' in the beginning and not by his name; now it has stuck.  Corinne had a small crush on the café's baker when she first met him, but now she convinces herself it was just a crush.  Furthermore, she focuses on her job as a waitress and takes her occupation seriously.  She actually enjoys her job because she gets to meet so many different kinds of people; humans specifically.  The human race was complicated, exactly what she didn’t like, and the perfect environment for her to get used to.  While they were telling her the complications of life and the complexity of it, she tried to show them the simplicity of life and how sometimes, less is really more. 

Favorite  
Cake: Ice-cream Cake
Drink: Original Milk Tea

Crush:  TBA ♥

So begins...

Corinne groaned as the sun shone on her face, the reason that had forced her awake. The groan was almost inaudible, and she had to blink several times before remembering why. She had slept as a rabbit again. She was lying on her side and she stretched, extending her short limbs as far as she could. Sighing, she sat up straight and hopped off the bed, landing on the floor with an oomph. A cloud of sparkles engulfed her and within a moment she was back in her humanoid form. The downside to her shape shifting was that she wore no clothing as a rabbit, and was just as naked when she transformed back. Well, not like anyone ever barged into her room. A yawn soon followed as she looked down at her digital clock. Her eyes watered up after the yawn, and she thought she was still dreaming when she saw the time. Immediately her eyes widened and she quickly threw on her uniform and a pair of clean socks. She quickly combed her long purple hair and headed out her room, slipping on her shoes on her way out. Corinne quietly entered the café section wondering where Arrow or Alex was.

She saw him walk into the back room, looking quite stressed. Or annoyed? She couldn't really tell. Because he seemed somewhat occupied, she went to the counter and took the red head's order. She smiled at the girl and replied, "Hi there, I'll do that for you. Boss is taking a short break." Quickly and efficiently she made the girl's order and slid them towards her. "Here you go. Enjoy! Boss should be back soon." After she finished she went towards the kitchen and sent a quick telepathic message to Alex.

Boss, sorry I woke up late! I'm just going to go ask Arrow if he needs anything from the market. Be back soon!"


She then turned back and tried to guess where the baker was. Oh please don't tell me Arrow's baking already... She quickly peeked inside the kitchen and to her dismay, he was. Corinne sighed. He took his baking so seriously. She remembered interrupting him before and intruding his kitchen. The situation ended with her frozen before him after he sent a knife flying in her direction. He missed. Thank god. He probably meant to throw his rolling pin, she had just caught him in the middle of slicing fruits or something like that back then. Now knowing better, she knocked on the door to the kitchen, waiting for him to either answer it or even just give some sort of signal that she was allowed within his sacred zone.

She sighed in relief seeing that Arrow was finally done baking. Seeing him walk out of the kitchen covered in many assortments of baking ingredients she started to chuckle. Reaching into her uniform pocket she pulled out a handkerchief and wiped off some splotches of batter that had somehow attached itself to his face. "Morning love," she greeted with a smile. "I kind of just woke up, so my day has not been very eventful so far," she said with a nervous laugh. "Oh yeah, did you need me to flash to the market? I think you mentioned yesterday we were running low on something." Corinne had a habit of calling people by a pet name, whether or not they were close to her. The only exception to this was the person she called 'Boss'. For him, the only name she ever called him was 'Boss'.

Also, normally she wouldn't teleport to the market because there was a chance of humans seeing her magically appear out of nowhere. However on some busy days she cuts time when she decides to use it, making sure she warped into a secluded place where people won't see her.

While she was waiting for Arrow to reply, the sound of a loud screech came from outside the café. Her head snapped towards the direction of the sound that was soon followed by a crash. Worried, she ran outside the café and inspected the scene. There was a boy lying in the middle of the road, obviously battered. Oh no... She rushed next to him and knelt beside him. "Hey!" she called out. "Can you hear me?!" She pulled out her cell phone and dialed the ambulance's number frantically. Dammit.... Mei. Where was Mei?

Mei! Can you hear me?! Someone's hurt outside!

Alex sighed and kept drinking eventually downing another cup of coffee which wasn't good. He kept pacing about trying to think of a way he could get the goddess to stay happy and away from meddling in human's lives. He didn't want to think about love for the moment. He was the god of love and a master at it but ironically enough he was a klutz when it came to love. He heard Corrie talk to him and nodded not wanting to respond truley. He went back out to the counter and began to wipe it down again his favorite past time. He hummed a small tune as he spotted BonBon who was on Mei's shoulder and then jumped to his master when their eyes met. The pastry jumped across the floor and onto Alex's shoe which made him laugh. "A boy and his cake." he said to himself laughing.

Miki Rin


Miki walked down the street in a strange sort of fashion, like someone doing half a dance but not wanting to bust out the full moves, made even more awkward looking by her forward movement. Of course, a dance is what she was doing, for she had an audition later that day for a rather important role, and if she landed it, her name might get out more by other means than last months big production. She was proud of her work, despite the fact that it had been ballet. She would rather her hip-hop was showcased, though she was exceptional at both in a non conceited way. After all, you weren't just average after an average of 15 hours of dance a week. On a good week.
She sighed and dropped her body movements, content for the moment to practice in her head. She still had a couple hours before school. Miki supposed she could practice, but this was one of the rare times she was not in the mood. It was never good for her to practice to intensely the day of an audition. She'd become much to stiff and paranoid. Better to trust in her skills.
She turned the corner and glanced up from the sidewalk, where she was avoiding cracks.

And her mouth dropped.

A truck had collided with a wall by some means or another, and from Miki's view she could see the driver slumped against the wheel. A bit ways back in the road, a boy was laying sprawled with an young woman by him.
There wasn't much of a crowd, but the streets were rather empty. The other girl had probably called 911, but despite that Miki ripped a cell phone out of her school bag, throwing that and her dance duffle to the side before sprinting over the the truck as she dialed.

"911, whats your emergency?"

Miki quickly described the scene and the location, at which the woman informed her an ambulance had been dispatched a few minutes earlier from another call. Miki sighed in relief and set about prying the car door open. She realized quickly she wasn't strong enough, despite lean muscles from dance tricks.
"Hey, sir, are you awake?"
The man groaned in answer and jerked back, leaning his head back on the seat. Miki saw a shard of glass deep in his forehead and cringed.
She hoped back and exaimed the crash, heart dropping in shock when she saw peels of flame licking out from under the hood.
"Sir, I'll be right back, don't move!"
Like he could...

Miki sprinted to the other girl next to the boys side.
"Hey, so, I'm not much of a car expert, but that trucks engine's on fire, and cars and fire generally mean explosion. I don't know anything about the police either, so you might want to key them in to send a firetruck or something if I cant find an extinguisher!"
She was frazzled, even more so when she saw the condition of the unconscious boy, but knew she had to stay calm.

Corinne noticed a younger girl run over to the scene. At this point, the angel was frantic and unsure what to do. Unlike Mei, she didn't have any healing powers, nor could she make the pain go away. She didn't touch the boy in front of her, not wanting to make anything worse. He would likely have some damage to his head, any wrong movements and she could impair his brain functions. At least he didn't look like he was hit dead on.

The girl came over and informed her about the driver that had crashed. Corinne's eyes widened. How could she have forgotten about the driver?
"No need, 911 sends cops, ambulance and firetruck all at once. Just in case. I don't think they'll make it in time-" Fire extinguisher? "Hold on. Watch the boy okay?"
She leaped up and rushed into the café, grabbing the fire extinguisher than was perched on a wall. Where was Mei when she needed her?

"Sorry to disturb you guys, but we need some help out here?" she said quickly before rushing out.

She knew she shouldn't bother customers when it didn't concern them, but two people were dying right out the door. It should matter. Right? She rushed back outside and called out to the girl, "I'm going to put out the fire, let's see if we can get the man out!"

She never had to use one before, and she was glad she had read the instructions out of boredom one day. PASS. All she needed to remember. Pull the pin. She pulled the pin off to discharge the extinguisher. The next three steps she did quickly and all at once. Aim. Squeeze. Sweep. She squeezed the lever and put out the fire wherever she could, praying that she got everything before something exploded. Once the flames were put out she motioned the girl towards the door. She saw the girl try earlier and she wasn't strong enough. Maybe two of them would be enough? She only hoped. She could hear sirens, but she couldn't tell how far away they were. The café was on the outskirts of town. No wonder it was taking so long.

"Alright, ready? One, two, three-" She tugged and pulled at the door, trying to make it swing open.

Mei


Oh..? Mei turned her head slightly to find Cupid’s pet missing from its perch. She sadly didn’t have enough time to give the pet a bit more attention with the orders piling up in the café and hoped the creature and herself were not on bad terms from that. Returning her attention to her current customer, the human appeared lost in thought in a strange way. The further he dwelled in thought as the silence consumed the two, the more a troubling aura was forming around him. It wasn’t as bad of an aura as Mei had sensed before lessening the concern towards the situation, just a memory perhaps? "Oui, c'est tout, merci,” The customer seemed to be talking to himself a little so Mei just stood at her post patiently in case another order would spring to mind. It would be rude to just wander away even though in her perspective, he was taking quite a while to zoom back into the current reality. "Er, sorry, thank you," he grinned, offering the 20 dollar bill towards her. “No need for an apology sir, it’s quite alright.” Mei responded politely, unexpectedly lingering as her fingertips touched his in order to retrieve the pay. Hm.. yes the aura isn’t so bad. she analysed during the brief touch before pulling her hand away and returning back to her original standing position by the table following her personal rule of not intruding in a customer’s personal space.

Mei! Can you hear me?! Someone's hurt outside!
Mei heard her fellow angel’s plight loud and crystal clear as it passed through her mind, causing Mei to close her eyes for a second as if confirming what she heard was authentic and not just her own thought imagining things up like being ‘needed’ despite her rookie status. It was certainly not the sound of her own voice which served as confirmation enough. It was just a highly unusual thing for Mei to experience- someone trespassing or setting foot into the organisation of her mind. Maybe there were angels that could read her thoughts, but for now she was a bit of a stranger to what the other angels in the café were capable of which made this telepathic message come off as a bit of a surprise. She reopened her eyes as her hand remained grasping the money offered, arm loosely hanging by her side as the customer had something else to say besides the average order. "You're, uh, nice, and pretty, er, you must get a lot of customers. The foods good too though..." The male stiffened uneasily before her eyes after saying his compliments which made her smile genuinely at his courage. It was not every day she would receive a compliment. Of course, she hadn’t forgotten Corinne’s plea and Mei was aware that the situation must be serious with such a panicky tone of voice applied In the communication trail but it was in her personality to remain calm and professional no matter what situations the human world could toss her in. The only thing that would make Mei a little jumpy, would be slacking off on her duty as both an angel and a waitress as it would mean she was not applying her personal best and doing all she could do, should do.

“Thank you sir—“ Mei was cut off from her sentence as Corinne burst through the café doors, hurriedly picking the fire extinguisher off the back of the café wall. The angel was very much in a panic which although seemingly not right for the mood of the situation, made Mei smile again to see such care and concern alight in her eyes. The world certainly needed more of that. "Sorry to disturb you guys, but we need some help out here?" Corinne said, apparently not noticing Mei present in the room before rushing out the doors from which she came with the fire extinguisher firmly in hands. Sigh. Mei thought to herself, although she was the quiet one of the bunch.. this was definitely not a professional display. Corinne was the head waitress which meant Mei was working under her and probably had no right to speak against her but she didn’t think the racket and fuss was necessary at all. If the situation outside was that drastic, all the more reason for less attention. Mei could not perform miracle healings while everyone stood outside and watched, gawking and in awe. It was not proper. Mei cleared her throat before raising her voice for a change, “Please stay seated and allow the authorities as well as staff to take care of whatever matters are in need of our attention outside. I assure you..” Mei’s eyes narrowed to show she was very serious as the words continued passing through her mouth. “That everything will be alright.. enjoy the rest of your meals and drinks.” She bowed after finishing her slight announcement then turned to the customer she was engaged in conversation with. “My sincere apologies sir, but there may be a delay of approximately 5 minutes with your order as café staff are becoming unavailable given the circumstances. In the case I am still occupied beyond 5 minutes, I am sure another waitor or waitress will attend to you. For now, please excuse me and enjoy your stay.” Mei concluded as she pulled out a pen and notepad from her uniform to jot down his order and left it along with the $20 on the counter in front of Alex otherwise known as Cupid her employer. She bowed her head to him respectfully before exiting the café to find out what all the fuss and mayhem brewing was about.

Mei turned her head almost in a mechanical fashion as she took in the scene for what it was. A human girl and Corinne were attending to the car crash in an attempt to save the driver while the troubled boy with brown hair Mei had noticed earlier was sprawled out on the ground in a blood display. Her eyes softened as she took in everything that had happened before kneeling down gracefully beside the boy on the road. He was alive, she was certain of it but her attention was also drawn to the sound of the authorities getting closer to the cafe in which she had a very limited amount of time to work with. Mei placed her hand gently over the male’s injuries, deciding to take away the pain the poor boy was feeling but leave the bruises and such as they were as to not make the miracle so obvious to the prying eyes that would shortly arrive. They were undercover angels after all, it would do no good to reveal themselves so easily. The least she could do was remove the pain from him. As her hands worked over the injuries, it would give off a slight glow only visible to angels and to further help him.. she began to sing to soften the human’s heart. Mei was attuned to emotions so no doubt he must be feeling overwhelmed or panicky at the state of him and everything else that continued to move around him.. unconscious or not, his body would be very aware of it all. Her singing was smooth and delicate, like an angel’s should be which acted as a method of calming him while removing the pain, trusting that Corinne and the other human was doing just fine with the driver.

Nicky herd some commotion out side. She quickly got out of her seat and started to head towards the door. She walked out side and saw a few cars smashed together. She smiled "Ah a nice time for angry drivers to learn to hate each other." All of the sudden things took a turn for the worst. A small fire started there were people injured and in trouble. She noticed a angel running around in a panic.

She normally would have enjoyed the show but something was different she wanted to help. She was actually worried for these people. She quickly went to help the angel open the door. But it just wouldn't open "We need some sort of leverage. Like a crowbar or metal pipe." She quickly searched around and found a metal pipe laying on the ground. "Hm lucky." She ran back over and stuck it into the small opening in the door. "Alright push!" Her and the angel and one other girl opened the door after some work. They helped the man out and lied him on the ground. She noticed that boy that she wanted to ruin but he was hurt and the other angel was singing to him. She was sad. Why was she sad she just wanted to make sure he never found love a couple minutes ago and now she was sad that he was hurt?

Some thing was happening to her and she didn't like it. She started to care about people and feel bad for them. She used to enjoy pain some thing was wrong. She grabbed her head and sat against the wall. She looked around at everyone. They all seemed to matter all had a purpose and she was in there way.

Corinne looked at the new girl confused. Wasn't she....? Well, for now she would attempt to get the man out. The rainbow-haired girl took a metal pipe and pried the door open as if it was a crowbar. Finally, they were able to successful move the man out of the car carefully. The sirens were closer now, so she wouldn't ask Mei to help this one. He would probably be fine once the doctors looked after him at the hospital.

She sighed in relief when she looked over at the boy and Mei. He seemed to be better now. Mei's song could reach her ears and even though the song wasn't meant for her, she felt a lot more relaxed hearing it. Although Corinne was the older one, she knew it didn't mean she was more powerful. In her own opinion, Mei was still young and already had a better grasp of her powers than the older angel. The younger angel was really respectful and treated her as a superior because of her age and status as a head waitress, but in truth Mei was actually the one that acted like the senior The girl was very professional, unlike Corinne who was a bit too immature for her age.

She knelt next to Mei and the boy and smiled at her.

Good job, and thanks. Should I put him to sleep?


The police cars, ambulance, and firetruck all poured into the driveway, a tad too late, but at least they came ready to perform their duty. This boy shouldn't be able to move right now, hopefully he wouldn't question it later. "You must be tired," she said to the boy softly, "the authorities will take care of you now." She pointed her index and middle finger and placed the fingertips on his forehead, a musky light seeping into him from her hand. That should make him feel like he's dreaming.

She got up and started to explain to the officers what had happened and to get the two patients to the hospital immediately.

Mei


The male human's troubled aura was intensifying as the seconds flown by that started to mess with Mei's concentration. Her forehead scrunched up a little as she tried her best to focus on the healing process rather than the aura, a drop of sweat trickling down the side of her head as she fought to maintain focus on the task at hand. Being attuned to her emotions and the emotions of others particularly as she was personally handling him and not just in range of him, she could feel what the troubled soul on the ground was feeling. It was something she hadn't felt before.. It was indeed, very negative emotions to have towards someone, anyone. All the more reason he should be a customer at the cafe, to discover a love so pure as to eradicate those emotions from strengthening to the point of no return. She paused in her work as she noticed his eyes struggle to flicker open with life and removed her hands from him, understanding she had broken the rule of personal space no less to a complete stranger under the circumstances. She closed her mouth, cutting off the song as if she had never sung. Mei wouldn't consider herself a hero, a saviour or any glorified title. She was just a rookie angel in need of no praise to perform her job. With this mindset, she entwined her fingers on her lap that showed no signs of ever touching him- no blood on hands to be seen as the angelic glow had actually prevented that. She waited as the human fully managed to open his eyes and attempted to sit up without much delay in between. Her hands instinctively reacted, catching his shoulders to stabilise the human in case he should collapse from dizziness. Mei hadn't been able to heal him entirely, being alerted to his wakening.

"....Are you an angel?" The brown haired male questioned with a smile on his face that made Mei's eyes widen at the question in the possibility she had been found out. Thankfully, he didn't seem so serious about it which made it seem rhetorical as he continued on. "...Did I die?" Mei tilted her head wondering why the human would ask that or what he was referring to. Her eyes blinked as she put on a brave encouraging smile. "Please sir, do not strain yourself any further. The authorities are on their way to handle everything. Lie down if it is more comfortable for you and your breathing... sitting up so fast after such an occurrence may result in dizziness." she suggested formally, hands still gently holding his shoulders. "I also apologise for intruding in your personal space.. I understand this may be an uncomfortable experience for you?" she added, her grip loosening on his shoulders in case the human could hold himself up. Her head turned towards the attention of the injured driver, debating whether or not she should leave and assist the others or continue caring for this particular human. She didn't want to leave him in his own care, not for a lack of trust but because there was no telling what he would do. Would he think he was perfectly fine and continue on his way? She turned her head back to him, a serious expression of concern surfacing her facial features. "Please do not exert yourself, you must be considerably tough to be moving so soon after the incident but.." She sighed for a moment, knowing she hadn't talked to a human for this amount of time before. It was the longest on her record. "But please." Her aqua eyes softened. "Please do not trouble yourself." The sentence came out rather personally, having used the word 'troubled' knowing he was troubled in more ways than just simply one. "You are not dead" She finally answered his question, gently placing his own hand to the left of his chest where his heart was located. "You can feel that, can't you?" she offered a smile to the human. Mei doubted whether or not she was handling this situation properly, being the first of its kind but she was trying her best. In the week she had spent in the human world, she was very limited in understanding of how she should even approach the race so continued to only hope she could trust in her judgement.

Corinne appeared beside her causing Mei to slowly let go of the human, feeling that she for once had been unprofessional. Good job, and thanks. Should I put him to sleep? Mei blinked over at Corinne asking her the question. As the angel above her in status, she didn't expect to be asked that way, it was like requesting permission. It took Mei off guard so she had naturally shook her head to suggest 'no' but then offered a smile as if to say 'do as you wish nonetheless', feeling as if she had earned her respect despite status differences. Mei still didn't think it was right to be put in the position of granting permission to someone higher up than her so she left it to Corinne to decide what was best. "You must be tired," "the authorities will take care of you now." Mei watched as Corinne placed her fingertips on the boy's forehead, spotting the light emitting as the contact was made. The angel soon left to talk to the authorities while Mei spared another glance at the boy before starting to make her way back into the cafe, prepared to disappear from the incident scene as if she had never been there.

The kind, gentle and caring words that escaped Mei's lips that would make anyone know she had genuine concern for this man that she had not met once before in her life passed right through one ear and out of another. He heard her warnings and concerns, but Zach was a bit stubborn sometimes, this being one of them. He shook his head, which actually caused a bit of pain before speaking. "Thank you for worrying about me, but it'll take more than a smaller vehicle to do any serious damage,". It should be known that his father was also pretty prideful, and as such, so was his son. That and..... Zach didn't have health insurance, making a trip to the hospital.... unpreferable.

Maybe it was the small daze he was in, but he just now caught on to the way she said 'troubled', and he felt the meaning behind it. He raised one eyebrow for a brief moment before his eyes widened just a bit by her action, which ended up pushing his hand onto his chest. He could feel his heartbeat, which was a bit faster than it should be, but then again, he was just attacked by a random vehicle, so that was a good enough excuse for him. He smile warmly. "Yes, I do..." he turned to face the person approaching them.

Another woman stopped beside them and looked at Mei, who shook her head 'no' for some reason. Were they telepathic or something? Before he could think about what she just declined, the newer girl spoke and informed him that he was going to be attended to shortly by some people with medical experience. He suspected that there was a small chance she wasn't lying. He took the loud sirens and the situation as evidence of this. He opened his mouth to speak, and was cut off before he finished his response. "I'm not tired... I jus--" as soon as her fingers made contact with his forehead, he began feeling a bit drowsy, almost as if he were drunk or extremely tired. He couldn't tell the difference sometimes.

"...uu...ouuu...." he yawned, but fought the urge to just lay down and fall asleep. People weren't supposed to do that when they received an head injury, if he remembered correctly. Then again, it wasn't his head so much as it was his right side of his body. That was where he took the most damage, having that part of him collide with the vehicle first. Actually, he was pretty sure that would have a colossal bruise soon, if it wasn't formed already. He gave a lazy stare to Mei, who gave him a kinder, less goofy one back before she set off towards the cafe, leaving him alone. Thus, he decided to stand up and prove he wasn't weak or even injured that bad from the crash. The car took more damage than he, he thought. With great effort and strain, he pushed himself off the floor, pain shooting through him but nevertheless, he found his way onto his feet. He wasn't flawless with his stance or anything, nearly stumbling off of them as soon as he got them (somewhat) firmly on the ground. However, this would not stop him. He would not be a victim of this accident, so he stumbled his way to the wall of the cafe and leaned against it to support himself while he ran a hand through his hair. When he looked at it, he noticed it was a lot redder than before.

"Eh? Would you look at that.... I'm bleeding," he said before wiping the blood off on the side of his pants, which weren't necessarily clean due to his time spent on the floor.

As Corinne was talking to the officer she turned back to notice the boy had somehow gotten up and walked towards the café. Maybe I really should have knocked him out.... she thought. She quickly turned back to the officer and smiled, telling him she would be back in a moment. She then walked towards the café and stood a close distance to the boy.

"Sir," she said quietly with a frown, "you're injured and you should go to the hospital to be looked after. Please take care of yourself better."

She couldn't fathom any logical reason he would have for not wanting his wounds to be looked after. If not for Mei, he would have died without treatment. This sparked a little anger inside Corinne. To her he was being careless, and pardon her words, stupid. By the looks of it, he was still in immense pain and to top it off there was blood on his side; what more of a reason should he need to go to the hospital? Also, was he trying to get back into the café? First of all, she wanted him to go to the hospital, not back into the café. Second, he is not dragging all that blood into the café. It sounded a bit cruel to think this way, but he would make the other customers uncomfortable, and it was not easy to clean either.

Was it money? Even with this reason she still thought it was ridiculous. There was a chance he could have damaged his organs internally, if so, he would die if he wasn't taken care of. Why did this situation have to be so complicated? To her it was simple: they got hurt, they should go to the hospital. If she had a chance of dying she wouldn't stick around and let luck decide whether or not she would be alright.

"Although we did not see the crash, we heard it, and we can act as your witnesses to an extent if the driver refuses to pay for your bills. I'm sure he won't though, he seems like an honest man." she advised. "At least get checked out, and you can come back to the café once you confirm that you are perfectly fine."

As Zach was minding his own business, doing nothing to harm anyone, some girl had the nerve to approach him and secretly scold him. Nah, he didn't think like that at all, and he honestly appreciated her worry, be it genuine or not. He looked up at her, a smile still on his face though there was still a faulter in his lips every time a surge of pain passed through him. Nevertheless, he (somewhat) managed to keep his warm smile and spoke softly.

"Take care of myself better....? I guess I should, shouldn't I?" he sighed for a moment, before it turned into a cough. When it stopped, he looked down into his hand and noticed.... spit. Good thing there wasn't any blood or he might be in some trouble. Well in any case, what she said was true, so he'd just have to go to the hospital he figured. "Do me a favor, will you?" he asked politely but didn't wait for her to respond before he made his request. "If I even try to move from this wall, I'm going to fall flat on my face.... I might be a bit heavy for a younger and smaller lady such as yourself to carry," he explained. "Mind getting a few of the men over there to help?" he asked, referring to the firefighters.

At that exact moment, the pain that was suppressed by a certain angel's magic was felt all at once, much more than Zach could handle. He groaned a bit loudly, his hand clasping his side quickly as his eyes squeezed shut. He breathed out one more thing, "Hurry, please,".

He secretly cursed his male bravado.

She felt a little bad afterwards. I guess he should know better than anyone else about his body. She nodded and went over to the paramedics to call for a stretcher. They were all in the middle of helping the driver onto the stretcher. A firefighter explained to her that they would need another stretcher, and he would have to wait. For now, all they could do was provide first aid. The firefighters were tending to the crash scene, and the police were busy analyzing everything. It was a crash. What was there to analyze? She sighed and went back to the boy.

"Sorry, looks like they have to wait for another ambulance." she said.

That's strange, he looked more anguished than he did earlier. She should get him over to where the paramedics were. "Here, I may be small but I am older. I may not be able to carry you like a princess, but I can lend a shoulder." She went to the side opposite of the on that was bleeding and wrapped his arm around her shoulder. He was definitely a lot taller, and she could see why he wanted some help from men. Well, it's not like she was a normal human girl, it was manageable. Corinne tried her best not to bump him too much as they walked over, but it was kind of inevitable. "Come on, big boy." she coaxed jokingly.

Making their way over to the officials, she allowed him to sit on the ledge that was at the rear of a firetruck. A paramedic that finished with the driver came over to tend to the boy.

"Sorry, looks like they have to wait for another ambulance."

Zach smiled, but he wasn't really happy hearing that. But, he could bear with it, for now at least. "That's alright," he said, the pain annoyingly pulsating through his body and making him more uncomfortable than he already was. To the ground, his eyes look as he noticed something that made him frown in sadness. There it sat, crumpled into pieces and FUBAR. The headphones weren't even there anymore, and they were't in his ears either. He wondered where they went, but it really didn't matter, did it?

"My MP3..." he groaned, making it obvious that this was probably the worst thing about the accident to him. While he could always just get another one, that one was his favorite. He'd dropped it many a time while walking and doing whatever and it always worked. Guess it took a car running over it to do anything to it. He mentally gave a moment of silence to the broken music player before looking up at Corinne as she started speaking. When she moved his arm, it hurt like a bitch. The pain from just that movement hurt, but he didn't let her know that, forcing himself not to show any signs of discomfort. Needless to say, getting from the cafe to the back of the firetruck was a grueling journey for him and especially so when she and he collided a few times.

He gave a soft chuckle when she spoke, calling him a 'big boy'. That hurt too. He took his seat on the back of the firetruck and was examined by a paramedic as soon as possible. He didn't pay too much attention to what the man was saying, but what he got from the man after he finished speaking was that he was going to have a big ass fucking bruise and to his surprise, not a broken bone on him, though an X-ray would confirm this statement to be absolute. From the sound of it, Zach was just going to be in pain, but nothing too life threatening, or so the man said. This gave Zach a bit of comfort, seeing as the last thing Zach wanted to do was be stuck at home without being able to go anywhere. Living alone was a tough thing to do, especially when you're injured.

"My MP3..." she heard him groan.

This received a chuckle from Corinne. He barely escaped serious injuries, and he was upset about his MP3 player? What a strange boy. She listened to the man's analysis of his physical state. From the looks of it, the boy wasn't too badly hurt. At least that was a relief. Perhaps she was being too pushy. It sounded like the boy was going to be alright aside from a really painful bruise. He needed to get an x-ray to make sure, but he could schedule it at some other time.

"I guess you'll be fine. Sorry about overreacting. I just kind of wanted to make sure you weren't going to die." She said as she scratched her head.

She saw the second ambulance roll in, and talked to the paramedic quickly. It didn't look like the boy had broken anything, amazingly. It would be better for him to get checked out, but it wasn't life threatening so she guessed it would be up to him. She shouldn't be controlling him after all. She turned back to the boy and gave him a smile.

"Well, looks like you're right. You're a tough cookie. You can decide whether or not you want to go to the hospital. But I'm warning you, all we have in the café are packs of ice. No painkillers." she warned.

"Ah," she said as she remembered, "My name is Corinne. I'm the head waitress at this café." She extended her arm and offered her hand.

"I guess you'll be fine. Sorry about overreacting. I just kind of wanted to make sure you weren't going to die." he listed to her apologize.

Apologizing? As if he would allow such a thing! "No, dont' be sorry. I really appreciate that very much!" he declared with great enthusiasm. It hurt his sides, but physical pain wasn't going to stop him from assuring her she did nothing wrong. He laughed a bit after telling her that.

"No painkillers, eh?" he pondered whether or not he should go to the hospital. He ended up deciding against it for the sole reason that he wasn't going to give Fate this opportunity to make him any more miserable... he hated being in hospitals with a fierce passion. "An ice pack will do then," he said, showing no intentions of leaving the cafe. "I guess this is Fate trying to tell me that I should've ordered a carrot cake today. I shall do so when I get inside," he explained.

Zach accepted her hand with his, giving a firm but friendly handshake to her. "That is a beautiful and unique name," he told her politely. "My name would be Zachary, and I'm apparently a professional car-wrestler," he added just for the sake of lightening the mood. "If you don't mind, I'd like to go back- being hit by a car makes a man very hungry I suppose," he looked himself over, making sure he was mildly clean. The man who had came over to inspect him gave him a cloth, which he used to clean off most of the blood. There was dried blood hidden under his shirt, but other than that, he was good to go.

She laughed at his enthusiasm. What an interesting boy. "Thank you, and very well, Zachary. I'll get you one from the back once we get back inside. Give me a moment to talk to the officers."

Corinne walked off to the paramedics from the second ambulance and explained the situation. They seemed reluctant to leave the boy, but the paramedic from earlier than analyzed him assured them that he was fine, and it was his decision to not go to the hospital. With a nod they jumped back into the ambulance and rode back into the city. Similarly, the firefighters soon followed, leaving a couple of police officers to deal with the damaged car and building. She returned to Zach and lent him her shoulder to help him back into the café.

Once insider, she parted from his side, allowing him to choose what seat was comfortable. A few customers turned their heads to observe, but soon went back to their conversations and drinks. Corinne disappeared into the back and pulled out an ice-pack from the freezer. She grabbed a spare cloth from the side and wrapped it around the pack to reduce the sharpness of the cold. Pack in hand she walked back out to Zach and handed him the ice-pack.

"Here, just apply this and it should feel a little better. Just a little." she said as she handed it to him. "Well, did you want that carrot cake now?"

Zach looked up at her with a grateful smile and accepted the ice-pack, ignoring the customers staring at him and instead smiled widely. "Thank you..." he said, placing the ice-pack on his side. He held back a small hiss from the instant coldness that he felt from it. "Yeah, that would be great right now," he said with a smile. As she left to do her job, he simply layed back, resting his eyes for a moment.

Getting hit by cars was streneous on his body, that much he was sure.

(Eh.... short post is short.)

She turned away from him and was about to get the cake when she looked down at her hands. They were full of filth and stained with bits of blood. Hah.... how unholy for an angel's hands to be stained with blood. she mused. Corinne sighed and headed to the café's restrooms to wash her hands. They were meant for customers, but she was just washing her hands, it would be more convenient this way. She made her way into the girl's restroom and turned on the tap, humming as she scrubbed her hands clean. She paused hearing another sound that didn't come from her. Was it... crying? Corinne turned to see a girl on the floor, and as she thought, she was crying. Oh dear, what could be wrong?

Corinne pulled out a paper towel and quickly dried her hands. Then she made her way over to the girl and knelt down. The first thing she noticed was how beautiful the girl was. Even crying, she could clearly tell this girl was very pretty. She had not encountered someone crying in the café before. "Hi there sweetie, is there something I can help you with?" she asked quietly. Zach's carrot cake was going to have to wait.

Gwen

Gwen didn't realize she had been crying until she heard someone ask her a question. Horrified, she whipped her eyes dried and looked up at the friendly looking young lady. For the first time, she didn't know what to say. One thing was for sure, she felt pathetic.

"Well um, I don't know honestly. I was about to leave, but I saw Zach get hit by a car and well . . . I don't know . . . it all happened too fast and I couldn't handle it. I don't know what's wrong with me. I just met this young man, yet here I am acting like a crying fool. I should have done something . . . but . . . is he okay?" she jabbered on.

She obviously didn't realize that the one talking to her was one of the girls she saw help Zach because she was still in shock.

Corinne smiled at the girl. So, she liked Zachary. "You're no fool. Trust me." She was crying because she was worried about Zach? What was foolish about that? She had just met the boy but she already cared this deeply; how incredibly wonderful. She seemed like a loving and caring person. "He's fine sweetie. He's a tough cookie." She paused, thinking that she should see for herself that Zach was perfectly fine. "Actually, he's sitting in the café right now. You can come and see for yourself."

She stood up and lifted the girl's body off the floor. "You should clean up that pretty face of yours. I'm actually about to go get his order; you can deliver it to him, how's that? He'll feel much better after seeing you, I'm sure." Corinne gave the girl an encouraging squeeze on her hand. "I'll be waiting just outside the restroom, alright? Come out when you're done."

Corinne left the girl so she could tidy herself up. Once she was out the door she clapped her hands in joy. The two made such a cute couple. The angel skipped behind the counter to grab a slice of carrot cake. She placed it on a small plate with a fork and walked back, trying to avoid being seen by Zach. Holding the plate she stood about a meter away from the restroom, waiting for the girl to come out.

Alex


Alex had calmed himself down and came back out from behind. He had his plan but still wasn't one hundred percent it would work. He looked out and saw Mei and Corinne helping Zach who looked bruised and beaten. Alex knew of certain events that would effect people positively and this could be one of the better things that happens to him on Alex's opinion. Alex heard the people talking at the booth. He wasn't sure to think of their love. It was neither fake nor true but it didn't bother him too much. He smiled at the angels as the tried to help Zach

Drake

"Wow! Talk about drama! And I thought showbiz was crazy! I guess I'll order something now. How about the . . . oooh, they have a sweetheart's special here hehe." Drake laughed a bit with her but still concerned if the boy was okay or not. He nodded and smiled at Trixie. "Sounds good to me." he said happily as he put the menu back down and hummed along to the song playing.

Gwen

The girl sounded sincere and Gwen hoped she was right that Zach was all right. She wasn't sure she wanted to see him. Thinking about the events prior to the accident, it left a sour taste in her mouth. She wondered if he thought her a fake now. Sighing, she stood up and cleaned herself off. Feeling that she had some control over her emotions, she slipped out of the bathroom before seeing that same girl again.

"I am sorry, but I don't know if I should see Zach. I didn't tell him who I really was and well, I am already betrothed to someone and I think that hurt his feelings. I wasn't my intention for something like that to happen for I had no control over it. I must be the last person he wants to see right now." Gwen found herself confessing.

Why did she say that? Gwen rarely confessed anything to anyone. Maybe it was this place for it did make her feel like she could be honest here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Trixie

Trixie smiled and waved for a waiter or someone to come to their table. She loved spending time with Drake and rarely got the chance to do so.

"So how was your last photo shoot Drake?" she asked him.

((Ceh, I'll leave it up to you what the Sweetheart special is lol. I can't think atm.))

Corinne's peppy expression immediately turned into one of confusion. Once again, another example of why humans were so complicated. The way she saw it, it seemed like the girl had started to like Zach. So, why wouldn't she want to see him?

"Well... I'm no professional sweetie, but I think maybe if you believe you've hurt him... then this would be a good chance to apologize. What better way to make somewhere feel better than with desserts?" she said with a smile as she lifted the plate of carrot cake up.

To Corinne, the girl seemed really gentle. She was thinking about Zach's feelings, and that was a step forward. The angel hoped the girl could muster up the courage to talk to the boy. Ha, she wondered if Mei or Boss would scold her for being so meddling. Well, Mei probably would never say it directly, but she might think it. She placed the plate in the girl's hands.

"It sounds like you really didn't mean to hurt him, so take this chance to explain everything. If you don't feel comfortable, I can pass a message for you. However, I strongly believe you should do this on your own." she coaxed softly.

Gwen

Sighing, Gwen cursed herself as a coward mentally and looked at the one who was trying to help her.

"All right, but I don't know how good it will do. I am scared." she admitted before taking the slice of cake and headed out back into the cafe.

She quickly saw Zach and took a deep gulp. Trying to gather her courage to face him, she slowly walked over and place the cake in front of him.

"Someone told me to give this to you. Um, Zach, I wanted to apologize for not telling you who I was. You see, well, I didn't know how to tell you in fear of how you think of me. So many people have treated me differently when they found out who my family was. And I am so sorry you found out I was betrothed. I don't even know how that girl found out for it was only known between my family and the others. Please don't tell anyone. And well . . . it wasn't my choice to get married. I haven't even met the man. My parents were married the same way and it's always been a tradition on my mother's side. I honestly don't want to get married. I am only a teenager after all and I wanted to go to college and if I do get married, I wanted to to be out of love. Of course, I doubt I'll ever find it now . . . . ."

Gwen caught herself. She was about to add that she couldn't love someone since she didn't love herself. The last thing she wanted was to be pitied. Of course he probably disliked her now for not being completely honest.

"I'll leave you to your cake now . . . sorry." she replied.

She turned to leave and walked with a head down.
