Mei Valesta

"Yes, may I help you?"

0 · 199 views · located in Slice O' Heaven

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

Description

Image

Name: Mei Valesta

Age Appearance: 19 years old

Role: Rookie Angel Waitress

Second Animal: Black Labrador Puppy

Powers:
1. Able to heal ailments
2. Sense troubled/tormented souls
3. Sing heavenly songs that temporarily soften human hearts

Personality:
Mei keeps to herself unless spoken to. Being a rookie angel, she only finds this tact to be a show of respecting the angels above her in status. Funnily enough, it is an old habit that is hard to break that leads her to wandering around the restaurant, only attending to customers that beckon her services.

Bio:
Mei loves being an angel although she finds it hard to express any of her emotions, most of which hide behind a small compliant smile or no smile at all replaced by blankness. Although she is unable to express her feelings well on the surface, she is very much attuned to her emotions and the emotions of those around her which enables her the gift of sensing troubled/tormented souls at a near distance or touch.




Mei also is fond of the human race but not out of envy or any negatively connoted feeling. She naturally feels obligated to look out for those in need of help but the desire conflicts with her easily interpreted ‘shy’ exterior when really, she is just far from a nosey person understanding that not everyone who requires help, wants help. She also does not want to talk to someone who has no interest in speaking with her as it would be time towards wasted efforts, leaving her to wait for an approach rather than take the initiative herself. She was easily given the offer to be employed for Love Cafe despite her rookie status due to her ability to soften hearts with her music.

Favorites:
Cake: Chocolate Cake
Drink: Ice Chocolate
(Chocolate lover <3)

Crush: TBA

So begins...

Mei had unexpectedly slept in on this particular day which was of great concern. She was a rookie angel and by no means did that grant her the right to start slacking off. She had just somehow missed the wakeup call and was now running late to attend to her duties. She wondered if by the time she got ready in her waitress uniform and attended to her routine, if she'd be the only one out there taking orders. It wouldn't be surprising if the other waitresses were missing but it would be when it came to her, she had never been tardy or called a sick day in her life! Well it was hard to call such a day in the first place.. being an angel and not a human. She hurriedly changed into her waitress uniform and dashed out her room after giving her attire one more dust off for a look of eloquence in comparison to that of a girl who had just jumped out of bed in disarray though that would be the more honest appearance, it was certainly not the most professional. A job was a job in both the angel and human world she concluded, and both were to be approached with utmost attention.

She easily slid through the restaurant doors that separated the staff from the prying eyes of guests with a tray in hand of refreshments for those who required refills or needed a drink while waiting for the rest of their order to be attended to but as usual, Mei had kept to herself moving about quietly only waiting to be called upon to serve. She did not find the job lowly in the least bit, though she felt that some humans did having to weigh upon another's orders and act so humbly while doing so. It was a change in pace in a way, receiving orders from humans instead of higher up angels sometimes but it was a part of the job and it only concerned their dietary habits and other eating interests afterall. It wasn't as if they were given orders to do something distasteful or unorthodox to her moral compass. Now and again, there would be customers who were hard to please or demanded more than they rightfully deserved. She was yet to encounter such a person though. For now, her experience at Love Cafe had been pleasant and there was very little that she would even consider of changing.

Mei's coworker angels were naturally occupied with their duties or so she assumed as she hadn't ever really tried to interact with them unless called for. She would attend to her job, nothing more and nothing less. Sometimes the days would pass by quite lonesome but it always brought inner joy to watch pairings meet up in the ever so eventful cafe. A customer waggled their finger in her direction to which she responded by calmly attending to the person's table, filling their empty glass of water to the top while keeping the tray in her other hand balanced, managing to handle both tasks as delicately as one possibly could. She didn't want to waste a single drop nor drop the tray and cause an inconvenience for everyone. That was definitely not the reason she was called here.

Alex was busy sitting at the end of the counter sipping his coffee and keeping BonBon calm. He looked crazy, Hell he was talking to a chirping soufflé. He heard two more people come in and immediantly sat his coffee down and went over starting with the girl. He knew that Mei was awake but she was being shy as always so he decided not to bother her yet. He went to the girl and immedantly knew she wasn't a girly, girly he then kept moving then to the boy. He looked depressed well both kinda did actually so he decided to use his powers a bit. He read both minds then went into the kitchen. He started to make the drinks while his pet had another idea. BonBon was bored without his master so he decided to mess with one of Alex's angels. He saw Mei and smiled then bounced over and jumped in her shoulder and chirped wanting to play.

Alex came out with a glass of Ginger Ale and a cup of Flat White both with a dash of Cariad mixed in. He placed them respectively then went back to find his pet missing. He looked around a bit but not too much as to arouse suspicion.

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? "

Sebastian


The French boy shrugged as Theo announced she had to leave, then asked about the price. He quickly raised a hand to wave her off, still smiling.

"Don't worry 'tea-ooh', I'll pay," He blinked happily at her. "Maybe I'll see you around if you don't hate me to much. Adieu."

Sebastian glanced around at the other people in the singles section. He didn't particularly like sitting alone, which is why he had tried to start conversation with Theo in the first place, though that hadn't gone to well all together. So perhaps he shouldn't approach anyone else. That might end up better.

He fished a twenty from his messenger bag, bumping his camera. Huh, he'd forgotten he'd had his camera! Anyway, he wasn't a fan f carrying a wallet. Everything was to organized in those things, not like he had credit cards or that much cash to line one with. He preferred to keep everything in the secret pocket of his bag, which he always carried with him.

As the waiteress neared he held up the twenty. "I'll be paying for that girl whose just leaving as well, et aussi, another latte for me?" He smiled in thanks, throwing Theo a backwards wave.
If she had things to do he wouldn't beg her to stay.

Mei


“Hmm?” Mei murmured in a bored tone, as if nothing in the least could startle her as she felt some weight applied on her left shoulder. Turning her head slightly, she sighted a familiar looking soufflé upon her shoulder, serving as the reason for the extra weight she had managed to pick up on despite her head being occupied for the time being, rummaging through observations of human interactions. A possible couple was forming; that of a brown haired boy possessing a strong aura of a troubled soul sitting with a girl with radiant long hair carrying flowers as decoration. The corners of her mouth twitched slightly to that of a smile before resuming a blank expression as she placed the tray of drinks on the counter seeing as no other customers wanted water at the moment. Also because she was aware that she was becoming distracted which would heighten the chances of a coordination error that could start an avoidable mess. She had smiled because the possibility of a couple forming was fortunate, if there was any cure for a troubled soul.. it would surely be love.

The neatly made bun of Mei’s hair seemed to bounce with life as she turned around noticing one of the customers call for her attention. With Cupid pet’s in soufflé form tagging along, she wasn’t sure if it would be wise to continue her duties.. wondering if humans could see the creature or not. It would be a startling sight and she was a rookie angel afterall causing her to doubt what humans could and couldn’t see that angels could easily discern. Figuring everything would work out and Cupid wouldn’t be so careless to let his pet roam free given the circumstances, she went on a whim and carried on. If all went well, humans would think she was just a very good balancer, managing to carry a plate of a pastry on her shoulder with no trouble at all. It was at that moment, the conclusion of her to-be actions, that she detected a pale girl with an unusual eye patch walk past her, leaving the very customer she was about to attend to. The girl’s aura was unmistakably that of a troubled soul, not as strong as the other boy earlier but it still caused Mei’s eyes to instinctively shift to the corner for a quick glance at the girl’s departure whilst continuing to make her way and carry on with her job. As much as Mei disliked sensing troubled humans that filled her with a natural desire to alter their lives for the better, she was also aware it may not be the right time for that or wished upon. Perhaps another time when Mei had polished her angelic abilities and understood more about the human world, she would consider intervening. For now, she was a rookie angel who had been serving under Cupid’s guidance for a week so far since the opening of Slice O’ Heaven and it was quite a worthy position indeed for someone like her of little to no experience of meddling in human affairs.

She halted at the table, maintaining a reasonable distance between her and the male customer where personal space would not be an issue but close enough for her to be able to hear even the quietest of voiced requests. Neatly entwining her fingers in front of her lap, she awaited to hear what orders she would be taking from this particular male individual. He had messy black hair and an accent she wasn’t familiar with that almost seemed alien- a funny comparison for an angel but she hadn’t really been out and about to have heard much accents to begin with. Certain customers were discernible through their manner of speaking, it was fairly intriguing. Mei knew she had much to learn but one thing she had definitely learned from the work experience was that every human was different in good ways, bad ways and neutral ways. Despite the accent, she understood his general orders and bowed her head slightly in respect. “It shall be done.” She said rather formally, albeit a little too much for the atmosphere of a café but nonetheless it was a part of her personality. “Will that be all young sir?” She clarified, her head lifted back upright as her flower hairpin glistened against the sun’s rays touch beautifully stretched beyond the café curtains.

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.

Sebastian


Sebastian smiled at the pretty waitress as she accepted his money and request, rather formally.
"Will that be all young sir?”

He knew the formality was probably mostly for the job, though perhaps it was her real personality, which would be interesting. It reminded Sebastian of his old butlers, maids and chauffeurs. Not in an 'I'm better than you way'. Being an only child, and often being alone in his house back in France, Sebastian had been friends with the staff since he was young. They all got along genuinely well, except for when Sebastian decided to pull pranks on them, but this waitress brought on a pang of sadness at the memory.
It had been a large step to leave France and set out on his own in America, especially since he refused to accept money. This had been his way to pursue his passion in his own way, away from his families influences. Despite that, he was often plagued with homesickness for his country.

"Oui, c'est tout, merci," He said absently, lost in a memory of the plentiful little cafe's in France. He followed the glimmering pattern of the waitresses hairpiece as the morning sun cast it into pretty sparkling patterns. He slowly drifted back to Slice O Heaven, looking over the waitress. She was quite pretty, and couldn't have been older than him. If anything, she looked a bit younger, though her calm sophisticated persona added age in wisdom on her delicate form. There was sort of a higher presence lingering around her, that made Sebastian feel as though he were in the company of someone very high and important. But then, perhaps that was the latte.

He snapped out of it quickly, scratching his head awkwardly. "Er, sorry, thank you," He gave the little lopsided grin he so often had when feeling awkward and held out the twenty he had offered earlier for her to take.

His head turned slightly to the side as the bell on the door jingled, signaling new arrivals, but didn't pay it much attention, wanting to get out some sort of compliment to the waitress about her professionalism or something before she maneuvered away.
'you're quite professional, that's a good trait for working, perhaps you're way this place has so many costumers, aside from the great food and drinks of course,"

Of course, that's how it sounded in his head, though it came out more like,
"You're, uh, nice, and pretty, er, you must get a lot of customers. The foods good too though..."

At this he actually felt heat creeping up in neck, feelings probably akin to someone who had just insulted the Queen in someway.

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.

Zachary McCollough
Professional Ragdoll


Darkness.... it consumed him. Was this it? Was this his end? Had his short and insignificant life been ended so abruptly? It's all he could assume at first. The pain from getting hit had came and went just like the flash from a camera, though it did make him extremely uncomfortable. He had been out before he hit the ground, his head probably hitting the glass as he rolled across the front of the vehicle. Though regardless of what happened exactly, he knew the basis of the situation and he feared for the worst.

Suddenly, a bright light made itself known across all of his vision. It took a moment before he could start making out colors and shapes, distorted voices teased his ears with only the occasional word being comprehendable. Had he the ability to, he would've frowned when what he was seeing was clear. He saw a very familiar girl and a very familiar guy, talking to each other over breakfast at a home. Zach himself was seeing this from the third person, as if he were a ghost. It was odd that he could see every single one of his own facial expressions as his past self tried to convince his ex-girlfriend to stay with him.

The emotions running through both Zachs were.... plenty. While sorrow was the most obvious one, it wasn't the strongest one. That title belonged to betrayal. Even if it didn't sound like it at the time, Zach knew exactly why she was leaving him and he ended up dispising her for it. Sex. What was it about such a physical act that could drive someone you love to leave you for another? This question was one Zach still hadn't gotten an answer to to this day. Maybe were he to try it once, he'd know, but he purposefully prevented himself from ever getting that close to someone. To Zach, sex was the ultimate way to physically express your love to someone else. It was what his father had always taught him, and it was something he believed in.

In his out-of-body-back-in-time experience, it had gotten to the very depressing part where Zach, as nice of a person he was, had been emotionally hurt by someone he had shown nothing but kindness that rivaled his normaly chilvary to. The pain on his face.... the tears streaming down his face as he himself became unable to deal with it.... it wrecked him again. The 'present' Zach, the one that was just hit by a vehicle watched with sympathetic eyes. He understood the pain he felt back then, probably because it was himself. What he noticed however, was that while his girlfriend was walking off, never to be physically seen by him again and only heard about through mutual friends, she was smiling. At first, he wondered why that was, and how he was seeing it. If this was a memory, how was he seeing something he didn't see back then?

Eventually, he gave not a fuck how he was seeing this, but why he was seeing it. Maybe it was just his hateful mind playing tricks on him, but she was smiling as if she had won a prize or something. Make Zach Cry, achievement unlocked? There had to be something to this..... she enjoyed that? No, no, no, no! This was definetly his mind. He was just raped sideways by a runaway vehicle, so he was just having loopy dreams as he passed away, that was it. He violently pushed the smile out of his way.... but it remained there, in the back of his head........

"?!"

Zach's eyes began to open... again.... even though he thought they were already open. They struggled under the weight of the light that seemed too bright for him to look at, wanting to open fully but never being able to. Soon however, his eyelids gained the upper hand and he was now beginning to see the outlines of an unfamiliar woman hovering over him. Her voice was soothing, and it actually made him feel that much calmer. Though it was a bit weird that she was singing and putting very light pressure on him. Was he being raped? No, nevermind... she would've had to been on top, and he couldn't take that situation seriously. I mean, who the hell runs up to an unconcious person and sings while they rape? God, he must've been hit in the head for that to even occur for the slightest second in his mind.

He felt a light pain run its course through his body- much lighter than he would've expected given the circumstances, but maybe he was just hyped up on andrenaline or something. Well, he wasn't going to complain about it, so instead, he sat up, albeit groggily. With a few uneasy turns of his head, he deduced where he was: on the floor, about ten feet from where he was standing when he got hit. Wow. He looked at the girl next to him and offered a smile that one wouldn't expect on someone who just woke up from being bitchslapped by a vehicle. "....Are you an angel?" he asked, oblivious to the fact that she was indeed one. "...Did I die?" there was the slightest strain in his tone, but he did seem calm and relaxed nonetheless.

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.

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.

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.

Sebastian


Sebastian, while everyone else had been rushing about the accident, had pulled out a sketch book and was doodling little comics of the eccentric people in the cafe. It wasn't that he didn't care about the boy who'd been hurt, it just seemed to be taken care of already. He glanced up an nearly made eye contact with a familiar eye.
Oh, so Theo's back..? He smiled a little, then it fell when he realized she might still be mad at him. He made eye contact with the Theo's blue haired friend and smiled, giving a little salute in hello before looking back down to his sketch book.

He wondered where his waitress had gotten too. She'd rushed outside to help deal with the accident. Luckily the boy who'd gotten hit was now fine, eating cake and talking to a pretty girl.
Sebastian refocused on his paper, actually bursting into a little bubble of laughter when he saw what'd he'd drawn. It was basically a chibi rendition of most of the people in the cafe, including a cross looking Theo, the workers and their treys of goodies, his waitress looking all, the large buff boy tripping into another girl- Basically a comic of everything that had taken place in the cafe that morning.

He found it rather amusing.

Miki Rin


After the crazy effort to get the driver out of the car, and a short question-answer session with a paramedic about the crash, the dancer was finally able to grab her dufflebag from where she'd thrown it and meander into the small cafe every else had flocked to. It was kind of crowded, but Miki didn't mind. Despite constantly thinking about dance, she was a social person. Speaking of dance, she began running her routine in her head again, shuffling over to the singles counter with half effort swaying. As rude as her next thought would seem, Miki didn't want to be stuck waiting for an order. She wanted to get to school early, run her dance once, and do all the homework she had put off because of dance class.

So, without a second thought, she meandered over the the door that obviously led to the kitchen, tapping the guy standing there on the shoulder just as a dark haired man sped by, demanding "Arrow keep her inside for as long as possible I have an idea."

Miki raised an eyebrow, forgetting about her rush to get cake and leave in curiosity. "Are you holding hostages in your kitchen or something?' She asked the guy named Arrow. She assumed he worked there.
She stood on her toes to peer over his shoulder trying to see through the kitchen doors little window.

Corinne gasped hearing him bump his knee. Did she startle him? She smiled hearing him compliment her in French. "Ah, excusez-moi. I didn't mean to scare you." She said apologetically. "Ton dessin est mignon~" She cooed again. French wasn't her most prominent language, but she liked it. Her accent was a bit off when it came to sentences she didn't use often, but with short little phrases it usually wasn't very noticeable, especially when she used a more high-pitched voice when she got excited. When he flipped the picture over so she could get a full view she smiled and nodded. "Oui, je l'adore."

She gasped when he ripped the drawing out from his sketch book. He was actually giving it to her? She clapped her hands in joy, actually very happy that he was giving it to her. "Pour moi? Thank you so much!" She said happily. Taking the drawing from him carefully she put it aside in one of the drawers, making a mental note to frame it somewhere. It was actually very adorable and she knew it would make her smile to be reminded of this crazy day. Returning her attention to the boy she smiled and replied, "Sebastian is it? I'm the other waitress that works with Mei, I'm sure you've met her seeing that you've drawn her in your drawing."

"Ah, where are my manners. Sorry my name is-" Her thoughts were suddenly interrupted by a break in her mind. This feeling was familiar, but she hadn't felt it in a very, very, very long time. But she definitely would never forget the feeling. Boss must have shot her with his arrows again. He had done so by accident many years ago, and he had promised to never do so again. She growled, knowing what was going to come, but she only had a few moment of sanity left. She would just have to wait until Alex reversed the effects.

Soon her mind went blank and her eyes grew hazy. Dammit. She was going to get Alex for this. The first person her eyes had set on was the boy who had given her the drawing. Giving a sweet little smile she leaned forward and eagerly grabbed his hands. "Je m'appelle Corinne~" She introduced with a sweet voice. All she seemed to want to do was get closer to the boy. "Thank you for the drawing, that was so very kind of you." She said to Sebastian. All she wanted was him. She heard a distant voice shout for some service, but at the moment, she could really care less. "Est-ce que tu m'aime?" She asked softly.

Mei had originally planned to attend to the boy's order, the one of which she had been speaking to prior the incident with the car crash involving the troubled child however it was at the doorway that she noticed her human form started to feel strained as her hand reached out against the wall to steady herself. Keeping a straight face and straightening her posture as to not cause any unnecessary commotion and in her nature being quite independent, she as casually as possible walked back to her room. Upon reaching her room, she collapsed backwards on her bed breaking out in heavy sweat. The strain on her body was intensifying moments before she plopped a pill in her mouth and closed her eyes waiting for it to take effect. Mei was an amateur angel so there was a limit to how much she could do and take, however the incident appeared to have overexerted her abilities. It was the first time she had combined two abilities; her singing and healing yet at the time it hadn't crossed her mind of the consequences that would follow after. Minutes later the strain disappeared and she sat back upright mechanically as if nothing had even happened. It was back to work for the waitress.

Fixing up the bun of her hair, she returned to her post in the cafe and already she was at a loss of what was going on. Her immediate attention was directed to her last customer to check if his order had been attended to in her absence. Finding Corinne there served as reassurance however she was acting rather.. 'touchy-feely'. It had happened before, causing Mei to frown slightly. Not again.. Holding back a sigh, Mei decided not to interfere as usual as her attention drifted some more. A girl with pink hair was impatiently calling for service but Corinne was ignoring it for the moment more interested in the boy in front of her that she was already attending to. Was she even taking an order or was it informal talk again? Mei held back another sigh knowing her place. Corinne was the head waitress and she had no right to order the girl to go back to work, if she decided to use her time socialising with a customer then Mei was going to allow- no, let her continue as there was nothing more she could do or say in the matter. It was frankly, out of her hands and position.

"Hey!!! Some service over here!! Thank you!!" The pink-haired customer was growing restless and it appeared she had company as well, an easily identified bodyguard of sorts and another male who was lowering his head and sighing. You and me both.. Mei thought as she caught sight of the sigh and spared a glance at Corinne's direction, a sight that had made her tempted to sigh a few times if she hadn't already let it out. Mei quickly turned away, walking calmly towards the group where the girl seemed to be the leader of the lot. "I apologise for the wait.." Mei said politely, bowing her head to all three persons to show she had noticed all of them rather than focus purely on the girl alone. "How may I help you?" Mei asked in a neutral tone, again splitting off her gaze to all three individuals rather than just the girl. In the back of her mind she was worried about what was going on between Corinne and the customer, hoping it wasn't going to turn into anything indecent or commotion worthy. They were angels after all and human affairs were to be kept separate, not personalised at least in Mei's viewpoint. She's the head waitress for a reason, I'm just going to have to place my trust in her as well as Alex in assigning our positions in the cafe.. I only hope the customer can handle Corinne's straight forward nature at most. Awaiting orders, Mei tilted her head slightly whilst attentively observing her current customers. The girl seemed to have a wild attention-seeking nature calling out like that while the boy accompanying her seemed to dislike her behaviour. Hm..

Corinne was still grasping on to the boy's hands when she felt a tap on her shoulder. A low growl was emitted from her, turning to the person who was trying to distract her from her new love interest. But then as if a switch was flicked, her anger immediately dissipated and she let go of the boy's hand, now focusing her attention on Alex. She tilted her head curiously, wondering why he was telling her to drink something. Would he like her if she did? Before she could ask he had bolted to the back of the store.

The angel stared at the cup, wondering what to do. She might as well drink it, assuming it was a gift from a boy. With a smile she drank the mixture, immediately feeling her mind clear. Now that she was no longer under the effects of Alex's arrows she carefully put down the cup and quickly slammed her hands on the counter in anger.

"Why you... I'm going to get you for this...." She muttered under her breath.

Remembering the boy that she was temporarily in love with moments earlier, she looked up ad offered him an apologetic smile.

"Uhmm.... sorry....? I don't know what came over me. Excusez-moi pour un moment." She apologized quickly.

Ugh! How embarrassing! She was all over a customer in front of the whole café, and she was acting like an idiot. Oh, dear, Mei probably thought less of her now. Mei's opinion of her was already bad enough. As a head waitress she needed to be a role model to her.

Upset and infuriated she stormed to the back of the café where she saw Alex run off to. Kicking open the bathroom door, she saw that he seemed nauseous and sick, but was too angry to really worry at the moment. It was probably because he had to make the antidote, but it was his own fault for shooting her with his arrows.

"ALEX!" She screamed, breaking her habit of usually calling him 'Boss', "You promised to never shoot me with those things again! Do you know how much trouble I could of caused? I was practically about to kiss that boy!"

Breathing heavily after shouting, she tried to calm herself down and took deep breaths. "What were you doing with those arrows anyways? It's been decades since you last used them."
