Gwendolyn Mayberry

How can I find love if I am already promised to someone I don't know?

0 · 192 views · located in Slice O' Heaven

a character in “Love Cafe”, originally authored by Zodia195, as played by RolePlayGateway

Description

Name- Gwendolyn (Gwen) Mayberry

Age- 17 years

Role- Rich girl

Appearance- Image

Personality- Gwen has a complex personality. In school and in public, she appears to be quite the elegant and confident young lady she was raised to be. She's very artistic and has the grace of a dancer. At her school people admire her and she does belong to the 'creme of the crop' there. However, despite all appearances, Gwen has a big inferiority complex. She hates having to put on a mask for the public and wishes she could just be herself, even though she doesn't think much of it. She's actually quite scared of doing things she wants to do in fear of rejection. She doesn't feel close to anyone at school and secretly wishes not to be apart of that 'elite' group because she doesn't like their attitudes. One thing she does love though is being artistic; however, she knows she'll never be able to pursue it due to her parents' expectations of her.

Bio- Gwendolyn comes from a very wealthy and connected family. She's the only daughter and has 2 older brothers. Her father is the CEO of a successful chain of resort hotels and her mother comes from an aristocratic family overseas. Her eldest brother is being groomed to take over her father's company and her other brother is studying to be a lawyer. Like her mother before her, Gwendolyn is expected to marry after she graduates from high school and her parents have already made plans for her to marry the son of one of her father's partners overseas. This is something she doesn't want, but can't do anything about it. That is unless of course a miracle happens.

Favorite
Cake~ Red velvet
Drink~ Chai tea

Crush- Unknown (TBA)

So begins...

Gwen always woke up early enough to do her morning swim in her family's indoor pool. After taking a shower and getting dressed for school, she went downstairs into the dining room. No one was there except her. It wasn't the first time. Her mother was from Europe and never woke up until between 9 and 10 am. Her father would already be at work. Gwen use to eat with her brothers and their governesses, but times had changed. Her governess, Elenore, was now working for another family. This had happened since Gwen entered high school. She missed Elenore dreadfully for she had been the only person Gwen could confined too. Her eldest brother Henry Mayberry IV, was working with her father now that he was out of college. Her other older brother William was now getting his doctorate out of state. Gwen was tired of eating alone.

One of the doors opened, and the house steward (butler), Johnson, came in.

"Good morning miss, are you ready for breakfast this morning?" he asked.

"Actually Johnson, I think I might go out for breakfast today. Have any suggestions?"

This caught Johnson a bit off guard, but he didn't show it thanks to years of experience.

"I had heard there's a new cafe near your school Miss Gwendolyn. There have been good reviews coming from it." he said.

"Lovely, can you fetch me the address so I can find it on my GPS than?"

"Right away miss."

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

So with the address, she got in her 2012 Bentley Flying Spur car and drove off.

The one good thing about being over the age of 16 was now she could drive herself anywhere. Before she had to be driven by someone else in one of the family cars. Most of the time is was in a Rolls Royce or worse, the family limo. She sometimes hated all the attention they got, but it came with the property. At least with her driving she could some independence.

Soon she arrived at the place and parked. Looking at the sign, she couldn't help but smile. The place sounded charming. So taking a deep breath, Gwen put on a smile grin before opening the door. Walking in, anyone with a trained eye would have known right off she was a wealthy person. Not just by the clothes she was wearing, but with the way she handled herself. Years of under strict guidance from etiquette teachers made sure of that. Also, she took ballet classes as well for her mother raised her to be an elegant young lady and future wife for the one her parents betrothed her too. Thinking of that brought a damper to her mood, but she never showed it. Looking around she saw the different sections. Well, technically she wasn't single, but she had yet to meet her future fiancee. Still, something had her feet walking to the singles' section and sat down, waiting patiently to be waited upon.

Zachary smiled, thanking Alex as he set the drinks before him. The only time he really raised his head from the drink after beginning on it was when some woman had slammed her phone on the table, probably frusterated with something or other. While he didn't really like the feeling of a person in anger, he couldn't personally do anything about it, and it seemed some foreign man had taken the opportunity to spark a conversation with her, so he went back down to his coffee, which tasted just as he expected it to.

Little did he know, a grin had slowly begun forming on his face, and his body felt light. He didn't remember coffee doing that to him, but now he was feeling really enthusiastic about life and stuff he wasn't even sure of. He felt... happy, and he knew not why in the least. The effect of the spiked coffee probably came full force much quicker than it shoud have, due to Zach nearly chugging the coffee, ignoring the heat of it and downing it in less than a minute.

The smile he had stayed on, unrelenting in its assualt on the world with its warmth and on top of that, he was confused. Was he high? No... he didn't eat a brownie, if he recalled accurately. In any case, he had no clue why he felt like he was in love with life. Being in love in anything was an impossibility since his parents passed not too long after he broke up with his girlfriend.

His gaze was directed towards the entrance as a stunningly beautiful (and probably wealthy) girl entered the place, the bell once again betraying someone's arrival. He instantly locked on her, whether it was because she just hit that 'mark' in her looks that attracted him, or because he was more or less bored and extremely happy for whatever reason. Zach was no fashionista, nor did he follow trends, but the clothes she wore stuck out like a sore thumb, and he could tell they weren't any five-dollar Wal-Mart clothes.... he hesitantly looked down at himself and away from her with disappointed eyes and sighed. Well, they were on sale.....

Of course, his eyes went right back up, still trying to gauge this person. If the clothes didn't announce her wealth, the way she held herself did. It didn't take a genius to see she put a bit more care and grace into each step and each body movement that normal people just didn't do. He wondered if that took more energy to walk and do stuff or not and then threw that pointless thought away as he followed her with his eyes until she sat down, where he slowly started pulling them off of her, regretfully.

Damn it!

He caught himself checking her out. Only guys who were interested in a relationship should do such a thing, and he was not one of those guys. Besides, she was out of his league, even if he was in the game. He did this quite often really. For someone who has a fear of relationships, he might seem to be quite interested from a bit aways, but that was just... the man in him. He'd one day probably end up blaming it on a girl as a joke and saying it was her fault for being beautiful. However, he failed to realize that was a compliment that made it look like he was interested and it might make things worse than better.

In truth, he had actually done this with each and every girl that got here, just the smaller, petite girl caught his eye moreso than the rest. He sighed, looking down at his full cup of DP with an uneasy expression. He 'felt' happy, but he wasn't and no drug could fully change that for too long, especially when he's always busy scolding himself for looking at girls. For one so troubled with trust as he, he sure put on a show, didn't he? Pulling out chairs for girls, opening the doors for them, complimenting them naturally.... it might shock people to find out he doesn't date... at least not yet.

Alex


Alex laughed slightly as Zachary watched the girl. "Cariad never fails" he said in his head. He waited until the boy was done staring and he smiled at him. "That's Amore. Feels nice doesn't it? Your heart really does want love even though she broke your heart that doesn't mean every girl is like that. Besides that was almost two years ago you need to forget her and focus on the present. " he said then winked and picked up the coffee cup and pulled out a rag and started to wipe it off a bit.

He finished then put it back in the sink behind the door then went over to the girl. "Hello miss what can I get ya today." he said happily thinking that she and Zachary could possibly make a nice little 'Lady and the Tramp' couple. She was the rich girl and he was the troubled teen, it would work out swimmingly as long as She didn't get involved in his first making.

Drake


Drake walked around town quietly checking the address of the new café he had picked out for him and his girlfriend to meet. He didn't want to make her mad and he sighed as he made it too the door and smiled as he entered the building. It was refreshing and he didn't make light work of scanning the people sitting already. He saw there were tons of people sitting at the singles counter and he thought since he was meeting his girl friend anyways he would go ahead and sit down in a couples booth. He then took his seat away from the other people and the entrance trying to make himself unseen.

((So I guess Alex will know all the back stories of the people who come into the cafe right? He's going to have a fun time getting Gwen out of the arranged marriage bit she's in. lol.))

Gwen could feel stares before seeing them. This wasn't a big surprise for it happened everywhere she went. It was unsettling though because she never sought the spotlight, nor did she want it. It really frustrated her. She knew that some would say she had a model's body, but in truth she saw herself too skinny and too pale to be considered a beauty. She secretly envied women who had curses and didn't look like a waif like she did. It didn't matter that her mother was always telling her to be proud of who she was and where she came from. The thing was, how could Gwen be proud of herself when she was someone whom others wanted her to be? She didn't know herself at all and it was pathetic that she didn't have the courage to speak up for what she wanted.

At the moment she was looking at the menu and didn't look to be self-absorb at all. She did feel eyes of the guy nearby looking at her. She was tempted to look back but the waiter came up to her in time to distract her. Smiling cordially, Gwen started to order.

"Tea please, chai if you have it. Oh, and make it hot too. Also I'd love to have your pastry of the day please and a small bowl of fruit. Thank you sir."

"That's Amore. Feels nice doesn't it? Your heart really does want love even though she broke your heart, but that doesn't mean every girl is like that. Besides that was almost two years ago. You need to forget her and focus on the present. "

"!"

Zach's eyes widened to the point where one would think he was trying to look through his glass and beyond. Obviously, his main thought was: How did that man know about his past? Zach, besides yesterday, had never seen this guy before, he was sure of it. Definetly. There wasn't any way this man should've known that, and there was absolutely no way he should've known something that had never been said aloud. That was so personal.... was this guy real?

Zach's head moved up to look at the girl again and not Alex. What was it about her that attracted him? Her beauty? Well... yeah, but that wasn't quite it... there was more meaning behind it. Was the saying "opposites attract" in the works here? Possibly, I mean look at her: Wealthy, serious, mature.... all those things Zach never was...

He shook his head. This was stupid. He's seen the girl for a total of two minutes, hadn't spoken and she's probably only interested in someone who is worth her time, unlike him. And even after those words from Alex... he still wasn't going to just trust people. Negative factors were all apparent here. For one, the obvious difference in social standing was terribly there, seperating them like a physical wall. Two, who said Zach even had feelings for someone he hadn't spoke to? He just... she was interesting! It wasn't anything like that at all, he just was bored or something, yeah!

Not to mention that even if he had, wealthy women had never been too kind to him. "Worthless", "Lower Tier", "Filth"... All these words had been used against Zach multiple times, and all he did was try to help them in one way or another. He felt unhappy that not only was his efforts going unappreciated, but he was being insulted just because he was born with less money. What if this girl was like that?

No... something about her seemed... 'off'. Whatever it was beyond him.

After placing her order, Gwen finally turned to look at the guy who couldn't seem to quit looking at her. He was dashing to say the least. He seemed to be a bit distracted by something too. Judging by his clothes, Gwen believed he wasn't upper class like her. She knew that whenever she encountered those of the lower and even middle class they always seemed to be uncomfortable around people like her. Couldn't blame them. Majority of those in her own 'circle' at school casted their nose up at those they deemed 'unfitting' to be in range of them and that included those who were of 'lower classes'. Gwen didn't feel that way about those kinds of people. If anything she wished she was lower class so she didn't have the pressures she had now. And she doubted she would have been involved in an arrange marriage too.

Not wanting to think about such things, Gwen cleared her thoughts and decided to greet the young man.

"Good morning, how are how your today?" she asked in a polite and kind tone.

"Good morning, how are you today?"

Zach was so busy in his thoughts that he failed to notice that the girl had faced him and nearly jumped when she spoke to him. The only thing he could actually think about after he recovered was that he must've been wrong to assume she was that kind of rich girl. It made him happy that he at least had one wealthy person not show instant signs of disrespect and disgust.

He offered a warm smile and decided to speak up before she assumed he was a mute or something. "Yes, it is a very fine morning indeed," he said. "...and I am doing wonderful," he matched the tone set by her. Then again, he had no problem doing so as he kept this tone constant throughout his days. "Is this your first time coming out here, miss? Oh, and I'm Zachary," he introduced himself before extended his arm to her politely.

Alex nodded at the girl then shouted at the boy "Bien sûr, un moment" he said then went in the back into kitchen. He started up a kettle of the tea then started the latte to brew. He dashed to the garden to get some kiwi, apples, strawberries, and guava then cut them quickly and put them into the bowl. He pulled out a warm pastry. It smelled divine. He heard the tea squeal then took it off the heat and put it in a small cup and put it all on the tray. He dashed out and put it infront of Gwen. Without a word he went back in and started back on the latte. He pulled out some brown sugar then mixed it into the drink. He then poured in a tablespoon of melted caramel and blue berry syrup into it the lavished the top with whipped cream and topped it with blue berries. He then took it out the the boy and pulled a few towels out from under the counter and put them infront of Aria. He then looked at the girl with the eyepatch and shook his head. "No you're fine and if you have another attack tell me I'll get you something to lay your head on." he said smiling.

((Lol, don't mean extend hand? lol))

Gwen almost giggled when she saw the raven haired young man flitch. It was a good thing she didn't for she was raised never to laugh at someone when it wasn't appropriate, like now. After all, she was the one who probably interrupted him. He must of had a lot on his mind. He recovered quickly though and introduced himself. Nodding in compliance, Gwen placed her hand in his and felt something warm go up her arm. She was a bit caught off guard and her usual calm veneer faltered a bit when her eyes widen slightly. The feeling only lasted an instant and the pale young lady dismissed it as a figment of her imagination.

"It's nice to meet you Zachary. My name is Gwendolyn, but you can call me Gwen." she replied.

Since he didn't say his last name, she decided not to say hers as well. It was a bit of a relief that she didn't have to because she figured once he knew her last name, he might treat her differently. The Mayberry name was famous in this city just like the Hiltons were in Hollywood. The first Mayberry hotel was built her over a century ago and became a chain of hotels before her grandfather had made them resort hotels. It was said he made a gamble in doing this, but it elevated their family status and Gwen was now considered a trust-fund baby for her grandfather made trust funds for all his grandchildren. She wished she could have known him, but he had died shortly after she was born and her father took over as CEO.

When her food and drink arrived, Gwen the nodded to the waiter, but kept her attention back on Zachary.

((No! He politely punched her, duh! XD))

Zach had to resist the urge to raise an eyebrow as something about her almost flawless facial expression seemed to change ever so slightly for a split second, before disappearing as she regained her composure. He noticed her grip wasn't too firm and in fact, it was delicate, like a flower. Her hands seemed to be like a baby's in comparison to Zach's, whose hands were of a decent size.

After they finished shaking, Zach smiled as she introduced herself as Gwen. That sound vaguely familiar for some reason, but he couldn't place it so he didn't bother with annoying himself, trying to figure it out. Gwen seemed very nice, something he was still greatly relieved about and it, his face showed some signs of the drug or whatever still making him project that warm smile.

"Gwendolyn? That's a very beautiful name," Zach complimented. It was actually because he did like that name. That and "Jeanette" seemed to just ring right in his ears. "So what brings you to this little cafe, Gwen? Judging by what you are wearing and even how you stand and talk, I can tell you probably must be better off than I," he remarked. His smile didn't faulter nor did his tone as he said that. It wasn't like he was one to be jealous.

After Zach released her hand, Gwen took the time to take a sip of her tea. It was delicious and to her surprise, better than the tea served at home. It gave her a funny feeling inside and was indescribable really. Trying to not be distracted though, she turned to her companion and blushed a little at his compliment. It was pretty evident too, considered how pale she was.

"Thank you. I was named after my maternal grandmother, who was Welsh. I am said to have favor her physically." she replied.

Her mother was a blonde too, but had honey gold hair like her grandfather. Gwen's father had dark brown hair. Looking at Zach, she couldn't help but think he was a pretty handsome young man. Not wanting think about it much more though, she decided to answer his question.

"I was told this was a good place to come to and it's close my school. And I guess when you say 'better off', I guess you mean financially hmm? To answer your question than, yes my family well off."

What she didn't tell him was that as far as other factors went, her life felt fake internally. Overall, she did not think she was 'better off'.

"Well, it doesn't have to be financially..." he said. "...Do you happen to have a career in modeling?" he asked rhetorically. Even if she said yes and meant it, he wouldn't be too surprised. She was pretty cute and all and he was honestly forbidden to speak to a girl without truthfully complementing her at least once. Had he not, his mother would've turned in her grave. "

He smiled before raising an eyebrow to one of her last statements. School? Near here? Zach's own school was the closest one to here, and unless their definetion of 'close' varied, he figured she might actually be in the school as her. Odd that he never caught that, but then again, he never really talked to anyone unless they started conversation, so it's safe to say that he wouldn't be surprised if she was in his same class. Well, maybe a bit.

"So you said you went to a school around here? Unless it is a private school, I might see you there," the thought of that didn't sound too bad in his head. Really, not bad at all actually. "Anyways, I'm glad to see you grew up good," he sighed, but kept a smile on his face. "I've seen one too many wealthier people who believe that money makes a person better,"

After he spoke, his hand remembered his Dr.Pepper and he began sipping on it, enjoying each and ever bit of it. It was like a party in his mouth and he was invited. Or something like that. All he knew is that it tasted great and he didn't want it to ever end ever. He kept his eyes on her face, still watching her beauty radiate from her immensely.

Now Gwen looked surprised when Zach asked her if she was a model. She covered it up by giggling a little.

"Sorry, I wasn't expecting that kind of question. No I don't model, nor do I plan on it." she said simply.

It was true, she never considered it. Besides, even if she wasn't betrothed to someone, her parents would never approve.

"I go to Milton Academy. Is that where you go?" she asked.

The school was a public school and one of the biggest in the city. It was easy not to know everyone there.

((For for the short post, I am on limited time this morning.))

Alex was finally about to sit down. He sighed a relief then decided to get himself another cup of coffee. He started to pour when he heard a chirp. He looked at the counter to see a small cake hoping on the counter. It was BonBon his pet. He had changed from his usual look to the current form of a small vanilla cherry soufflé. The pastry hopped onto Alex's shoulder and licked him as if he was a small dog. "Good to see you too " he said then rubbed the cherry on his head.

Alex finished pouring the cup then went back out after putting his pet on a small dish. He took him out and sat him on the counter his face around. The cake then kept chirping wanting to talk to his master. Alex smiled at him then looked over at the couple. The first of many to be made here.

Zach beamed a smile at her. "Yes it is," he answered. "I've got to start paying attention to who goes there, don't I?" he might've felt a little embarasssed that he never saw her before, though then again the school was pretty big, and she didn't see him either, so they were even. He did however, wonder why she didn't go to a private school or something. If her parents were wealthy people, then usually they'd send them to the best school where all the rich kids frolic in their own, natural habitat, undisturbed by the lower or middle class. Well, it wasn't like he was unhappy.

"I might have to keep a lookout for you in school," he chuckled lightly. He realized she might be with the more popular groups, but that didn't matter to him. She was nice, wasn't she? He'd like to think so... but then again, her friends might act mean to her if they were the kind of rich girls Zach had originally thought she was and he approached her. "Well, probably not... I wouldn't want to cause you any unneeded trouble." he finally said.

Gwen wondered why he wanted to pay attention more to who attended the school. Even she didn't know who all went there. The reason why she wasn't in a private school was because her father was one of the main benefactors and creators of the school. He believed that in order to run a successful business and work within one, a person must learn to cooperate with others. The lower class folk were just as important than those of the upperclass when it came to creating a successful business, especially one built on customer service. Of course, that was the extent of his generosity. He didn't make a practice of mingling with the lower classes unless it was necessary. Unlike some of his colleagues at least, her father didn't look down upon the lower classes.

When Zach finished his last sentence, Gwen felt bad. The only reason why she did 'hang out' with the other "Elites" in the school was because of what her parents said. These people were to be her colleagues and it was a necessary evil to interact with those like them. There were a few that were like her but she didn't see them often enough for they were usually the Presidents or Heads of the school organizations at school.

"Well, we can still talk here at least. I wouldn't want you to be around those you're uncomfortable with." she said honestly.

There was something about him that made her feel at ease. Or it could be the food and drink she was having.

"Me? Uncomfortable? Please!" he laughed, though his gaze found itself on the 'couples' sign as he did so. He ended up pulling it back down to Gwen after a slight delay. Zach couldn't help but feel slightly jealous of those people who found the right person. He longed to be able to do so, but he did have a pretty big fear of being betrayed like that again, and that prevented him from ever trying again. Was he stupid? Possibly... he gave love only once to work and it didn't, but he couldn't really bring himself to trust again.

He sighed and grinned with happiness. "I wouldn't mind coming here more often," he said. "It's pretty calm and welcoming in here," looking over to the others in the singles section, he adjusted that statement. "Well, at least it normally is. Was yesterday," it had to just be the people here, he thought. Slamming phones, spontanious sleeping.... not the most peaceful things to occur, but still. As his mind dragged through events, he found himself back on the "How the fuck did that guy even know about my past and should I feel violated or something? Is he a mindrapist?".

The smile he had disappeared as he began trying to peg the possibility of him knowing Alex prior. There wasn't. Not only did he know what had happened, he knew exactly what Zach had felt. There's no explaination to this. Sure, someone who knew Zach from before could've possibly told Alex about what happened, but not how he felt. He never did have any friends that were close enough for Zach to open up to, save for his parents, which were now deceased, regretfully. As nice as Zach is, he finds himself without 'real' friends. He's that guy everyone tends to like, but he doesn't ever pursue meaningful relationships with a girl, nor does he find himself making best friends with anyone at school. Maybe he's still in caught up in mom and dad's death. He was close to them, and the two-hit combo of losing a girlfriend and then his parents shortly after might've cause him to be more untrusting than he had originally thought.

Now that he realized this, he was going to change it. Starting now! He was going to make Gwen a real friend, if she'd have him. Nothing romantic of course but... she was definetly someone he wouldn't mind being around more than others.

Nicky sat outside of the little shop."I wonder how Alex is doing. Maybe he got some suckers to fall for each other already." She opened the door and looked around there was different sections. She knew Singles is where Alex was probably working his magic. She walked into the single section she saw a couple people chatting and some alone. She saw a odd red head run out. She shrugged and looked for a couple that she could interrupt and hopefully kill the mood. Nothing kills love more than a third wheel! She mostly hopped that Alex wouldn't kick her out right away. She started to pick out the couples. She saw a french boy and a girl with a eye patch "To easy."

She saw a Rich girl, with a hmm how to explain this boy. He is definitely not normal but who is. He seems like a nice guy but those are the worst. She has been doing some research on the town she herd of the rich girl before. The Mayberry's! That's where she herd that. Nicky loved the Mayberry's they didn't care about love they were far to greedy! But this girl was different she seemed to be enjoying this boy's company dang Alex must of got to them.

She didn't finish her thought. A tall very angry looking guy walked in. Alex came out and looked around she hid quickly but then she stood out of her seat. "Hey big guy come over here and join us!" She sat back down and looked at the other two. "Well three is a crowed lets make it a party with four."

Nathan didn't know if it was the owner or an employee, what he could say with certainty was that the service is excellent, without any questions or anything the young man brought him a cup of his favorite beverage, Flat White, the microfoam poured on the espresso gave it a smooth texture that the boy loved.

Decided to look around, there was a girl with a hat that apparently entered the cafe shortly before him since the young owner served her something about the same time, Nathan realized that her drink was different, but chose to ignore the doubts and continued enjoy his drink, even though it was the singles section for some reason some people were in pairs, from a nearby table a strange-looking girl, Nathan had no other way to describe her, called him.

"Hey big guy come over here and join us!" She sat back down and looked at the other two. "Well three is a crowed lets make it a party with four."

His expression hardened, the boy had trouble dealing with only a person and the girl that calling him was with two others a boy and a girl, no, that was much more than he could handle, Nathan looked her for a moment and turned back to his drink, he wasn't ready for something more than one to one interaction.

((HAHAHA!!! Chizzura, that's plain evil! I love it! lol.))

Gwen

Gwen looked at Zach with concerned for it looked like he had a lot on his mind. Unfortunately before she could say anything, another girl with different colored hair popped in unannounced and started jabbering away. Gwen felt her back stiffen up and she looked down at her plate. Oh just great! How did Gossip Girl here find out about her betrothal? It was only known about the two families and that was it. She glanced at Zach and could feel a sudden panic coming on. What must he think of her now? Feeling overwhelmed for some reason, she suddenly wanted to leave. Not even bothering to finish her breakfast, she grabbed her purse and started looking for her wallet, only to find it missing. Oh great! Now what was she to do? Now she really was about to have a panic attack. Gwen didn't know what was wrong with herself either. She rarely felt this emotional. Getting up, she walked up to the waiter that served her.

"Pardon me, but I can't seem to find my wallet. I am sorry, is there anything I can do about it?" she asked.

Anyone looking at her now would see that she was about to crack.

Trixie

Trixie knew she was running late to meet her boyfriend at this new cafe, but then again, she was always running late when it came to everyday stuff. She was riding riding in a limo. Soon though she'd be able to drive, something she couldn't wait to do. She had just finished a tour and was now on some downtime. She wanted to take a year off and wanted to go back to school for a bit because as much as she loved all the fame and fortune she got, she missed her old friends in this town. It was funny how life turned out. Now she was on top of the world! Trixie O'Conner was in a modern day fairy! She was loved everywhere she went and she also had fallen for a sweet and hot guy, Drake! Couldn't life get anymore better.

"Miss, we're here." said her driver, Donald.

"Thanks Donald!!! I'll call you when I am ready to go!" she smiled before getting out of the limo, and was quickly followed by her bodyguard, who was a big brute named Sasha.

He was originally from Ukraine and while he looked tough and mean, he was actually a nice guy. Trixie got him when she started getting stalkers. Also when Trixie got out of the limo, another car had pulled up behind it and several photographers started taking pictures of her. The pop star smiled and waved at them before going into the cafe. She used the paparazzi to her advantage and loved every minute of it. She would merely laugh at the stories they came up about her.

When Trixie came into the cafe, she looked around before seeing Drake in the Couples' section. Beaming, she skipped over to him.

"Good morning Drake! Sorry I am late!" she said before leaning down, wrapping her arms around his next, and giving him a quick kiss on the lips.

She than sat down. Sasha merely stood next to where she was sitting, eyeing everyone in the cafe.

"This place looks so kawaii Drake! It smells divine too! Have you ordered anything yet?" she rambled on.

Alex


Alex quickly spotted the pastry looking beast and decided it was best for him not to interfere with him bugging Mei. He then saw Gwen come up to the counter. "Pardon me, but I can't seem to find my wallet. I am sorry, is there anything I can do about it?" Alex was about to suggest the same thing he had told but Zachary came up and paid for it. "Very well have a nice day both of you." he said then saw Nicky and growled. "One moment please. " he said then walked over to the table and grabbed the chair pulling Nicky with it. He moved it to an empty table then sat down opposite to her. "Why do you insist on stalking me wherever I go? " he said slightly annoyed.

Drake


Drake heard the clicking of cameras and knew that Trixie was here. "Good morning Drake! Sorry I am late! Drake smiled as she kissed him and nodded. "It's fine. " he said then realized her body guard was still with her. He scared him but he didn't seem to hostile towards him. "This place looks so kawaii Drake! It smells divine too! Have you ordered anything yet?" Drake shook his head. "No I was kinda waiting for you until I ordered. " he said then smiled happily. "What sounds good for you today? "

In what felt like half a second, Zach and Gwen had been bombarded with a little girl's voice. He did not like what he heard. Gwen Mayberry? That's who he was talking to? Why didn't he figure that out soon? Rich, beautiful.... he inhaled and exhaled deeply.

Gwen was getting married. She was already planning on marrying someone? Well... it wasn't like he was expecting anything more than a friendship, but.... it still hurt him just a bit on the inside, as if he lost something. He closed his eyes, inhaled again and began to exhale once more when Gwen had gotten up and started towards a waiter. Damnit! This girl.... she just ruined a perfectly good conversation......

He opened his eyes slowly, the smaller intruder being the focus of his vision. His breathing was deep, and he found himself unable contain a rather evil thought in his head. Well, there was no doubt in his mind this girl had came here to be mischievious. So, he didn't give her the pleasure of a talking to or anything for that matter. He simply got up, walked over to Alex and Gwen, giving her a quick glance before removing his eyes from her as he pulled out his wallet and simply gave the man more than he was supposed to pay. "I'm covering both the expenses from yesterday and today, as well as Gwen here," he said simply. He offered a warm smile she probably didn't expect from him. "I'll see you later," and with that, he continued towards the door.

As he begun to exit, that same evil thought entered his mind. Normally, he wasn't mean nor would he cause any emotional or physical harm to a woman or a kid, however, he decided to make an exception before he exited the place. He looked at the girl and smiled. He kept a warm face and showed no signs of laughing nor anything that would suggest that he was playing a prank.

"Remember! Some people stop wetting the bed later than others! You'll get the hang of it, I'm sure!" he said pretty audibly with a smile and a wave towards the troublemaker who was now sitting next to Alex, before exiting the cafe.

Nicky crossed her arms and smiled as her plan worked out perfectly. Soon the girl was ready to leave and all of the sudden she lost her wallet. The girl was about to have a mental break down. The boy got up and left after Mayberry left. He seemed angry she was gonna provoke him more but he has had enough for today. Before she could even think of anything she was being dragged away towards a empty table. She knew it was Alex she was pleased with how her first break up of the day went. But she still had a lot of work with them to keep them apart. She was pulled to the empty table she smiled at Alex.

"Why do you insist on stalking me wherever I go? "

Nicky giggled and reached across the table and poked him in the nose. "Because your cute. And I was born to stop love and that is what you were born to create." She leaned back in her chair and just smiled at him. "If you want me to go you can just ask. But you know as well as I that I will just come back. You can't keep me out of here." She looked around as the boy that she just saved from love walked by.

"Remember! Some people stop wetting the bed later than others! You'll get the hang of it, I'm sure!"

Nicky smiled and watched him walk out. "That guy is really gonna get it. I will ruin him but the whole time he will think I'm just some annoying girl." She stood up and looked around for a place to sit and wait for more people. "Now unless you have something else to say. I am gonna go ruin some couples."

Gwen

Things seemed to be going too fast for Gwen. She barely had enough time to breath. The blonde actually saw the accident happened, but was too shocked to do anything. And just as she was about to go help him, two other ladies did. Feeling completely out of it, she actually went right back inside the cafe and found out where the restrooms were before sliding down onto the floor. She was in a bit of a daze and couldn't seem to grasp reality. Seeing Zach get hurt like that made something inside her break. What was this feeling? There other feelings whirling around in her too and she couldn't seem to get a handle on them. Without realizing it, she starts to cry. Gwen also didn't notice that she was late for school.

Trixie

"Wow! Talk about drama! And I thought showbiz was crazy!" exclaimed Trixie as she watched several scenes unfold.

She actually hoped that whoever got hurt was okay. She looked back at Drake before looking at the menu.

"I guess I'll order something now. How about the . . . oooh, they have a sweetheart's special here hehe." she giggled.

Trixie wasn't trying to be rude or anything, she was just hungry.

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.
