Aiko has never been that good around people and has a huge fear of being around people she doesn't know. She also gets stressed really easily so she just decides it'll be easier without anyone.

For someone to be a true parent to her (she always wanted this but never said it aloud)

Equipment

Aiko Brings her iPod and headphones with her everywhere she goes. She also has a pocket knife always on her just in case of emergencies, Her guitar that she sometimes has strapped on her back, a switch blade that she has kept with her ever since the incident, apron, rolling pin, and all baking stuff.

History

Job: She was a waitress but has always wanted to be a baker. she baked for her close friends and they all encouraged her to be a baker because she is "Freaking amazing" at baking but she never did before because she was shy.
Aiko has never really been a "people person" She always went to school and got straight a's and has picked on because of that. Her parents had always pressured her into everything. One day, after getting bullied so much, she came home to find her parents fighting like usual. After going through kindergarten all the way through high school of her life being a constant hell, she cracked. She tried to find her music to save her but her mom took it away the evening before. She whipped out her pocket knife and blacked out. When she woke up, she was bloody and on the ground. In front of her was her parents dead bodies. She quickly put away her knife and grabbed her music. She couldn't handle life anymore. It was all way too much for her. She ran to the tallest building she could find and went to the roof. She quickly put on her head phones and blasted the music as she got closer to the edge. She was a step away when she froze. She couldn't move any closer. No matter what she did, she only got farther away from the edge. She needed to get away...... She needed Nazo.

So begins...

"I'm late, I'm late, I'm late" mumbled Aiko as she ran down the street. "I was supposed to give my application to them a few minutes ago- Oh!..... There it is....." She hesitated at the door when she saw how many people were there..... She was never good with people. She always seemed to say the wrong thing. Aiko looked around slightly before finally entering the shop. "s-sorry I'm late....." she said quietly as she took out her application and silently handed it to Millie May. She knew that this was the right place to start off with. Being a pastry chef was going to be hard with her antisocial skills but she was willing to try at least.

She looked up from the meat station as someone called to her, she washed her hands and stepped out calling back into the kitchen,"can I get someone to prep the meat while I take care of this?" a man nodded takin over, he was reliable to say the least. Millie's hair was up as she greeted the girl taking the application it shown pastry chef,"looks like maxi gots herself a apprentice. Tell me how Lon have you baked and what's your best dish?" she had a warm feeling as she lead her near the othe other applicant a booth by the window where you can see the park garden and all it's wonder.

Maxine heard her still facing the other girl who was filling in her application, she hoped more men would come but they never would with the fish market and better opportunities. She sat there swinging her seat side to side dressed in her favorite outfit exposing her belly in shorts that annoyed Mill a lot. She had a smirk on her that seemed to say so what as she saw Mill eyeball her with the stern look.

"I've been baking for about 10 years and I've even had some Culinary lessons" Aiko said quickly. My best dish?.... hmm.... She finally thought of what her best dish was as a smile tugged at her lips. "My best dish would be lemon tarts....." She said somewhat quietly, now remembering everyone around her. She always felt uncomfortable around two people she didn't know. This was an absolute nightmare to her. Aiko quickly started messing with her shirt slightly and tried not to make eye contact with anyone hoping this would take her mind off of everyone.

Benny walked out of the kitchen licking his lips, humming to himself. When he reached the counter area where everyone was he felt an uncomfortable aura in the air. He gazed at a girl he had never seen before, noticing she was not making eye contact with anyone in the room. Benny swiftly walked towards her and took her hands away from the shirt into his small, pale hands. "You are gonna work here now right? You don't have to be nervous," Benny said giving her a comftoring grin. "This place is like a family. When Maxine and Millie may found me, they took me in and we will do just the same for you." Benny let go of her hands and walked over to the candy jar and grabbed two lollipops. "Here, you have the orange one," he said extending the candy out towards the girl. "Candy always makes me feel better. You like candy don't you? I have a special knack at guessing who likes sweets. Am I right?"

Aiko blushed at the cuteness of the little kid and smiled as she looked at him. Feeling relieved in his words of family, she also felt a pain in her heart..... Something... Forgotten. She quickly shook it off and took the lollipop gratefully.
"Thank you...." She said with a slight smile as the kid guessed right. She was absolutely in love with any type of candy. She quickly popped it in her mouth and smiled even more. Maybe this wouldn't be as bad as i thought.... She thought to herself as the boy seemed to calm down the nerves that usually her music or cooking did.
"and yes, You're quite good at guessing candy lovers." She said as she knew introductions were going to have to be said. "My name is Aiko by the way...... Aiko Kutikara....." She sort of felt uneasy as she finished her name. People always picked on her for having a weird last name at school. She quickly tried to shake off the feeling again as she just tried to pay attention to the sweetness of the sucker. Candy really is an amazing thing.

The small boy's eyes widened. "Kuti...Kutikara? Impressionnant name. I've never heard of anything like that. I'm Benny. Just Benny. I work here as the bus boy, so we will be seeing a lot of each other now. Right Millie may? You are gonna hire her, aren't you?" Benny said, giving the owner of te cafe an angelic look. He wasn't always used to getting what he wanted all the time, but when he did, he would just put on that innocent face of his and people would succumb to him. It was an ability he knew he could not over use or else it wouldn't work anymore.

"Thank you." She quickly said to Millie. "A-And okay." said Aiko as she quickly followed Maxi. She was thankful that she was leaving the huge group but was sad that she was leaving Benny. She quickly shook off the feeling because she knew they'd see more of each other throughout the day so she wouldn't have to worry about it. She quickly grabbed the apron Millie motioned to and put it on. As soon as she entered the kitchen, she stood just a small moment to take in the glory of the kitchen. It was way bigger than the one she had at home. Duh, It's a cafe. Of course they'd have a bigger kitchen than the one I have at home. She thought to herself as she fell back in step behind Maxi.

"O-okay." Aiko said as she took the hat from Maxi. She quickly put it on and washed her hands before she started finding the ingredients. Once found, she quickly started by mixing the flour, butter, and sugar together. As soon as she finished mixing it all together, she felt everything around her faze away as a smile found it's way to her lips. She always loved baking. It was a great stress reliever if you get everything right. Once it was all blended correctly, she quickly patted the dough into the pan and put it in the oven. The crust always has to be firm before you put in the lemon. She thought to herself as she started mixing things for the rest of the Lemon squares.

Benny rushed into the kitchen and covered his red face. "Ah! My face is so red. Not again."

Benny slid down the wall and curled into a ball. That man was beautiful. he thought, half smiling. Whenever he is near a guy, let alone a good looking one, he always becomes so shy and would blush badly. He looked up from his postion and saw Aiko making lemon tarts. "Aiko," he called to her. "I need to find someone to wait table nine and I can't find Millie or Maxine."

Aiko took a moment to fully process what Benny said until she was sure of what he just asked him. She looked back at Benny, absolutely surprised
"M-me?" She questioned as she got out the crust and poured the filling in. As soon as that was done, she put it in the fridge, washed her hands, and took her hat off to go help.
"All i n-need to say is "May I take your order." Right?" She asked as she was already feeling nervous about this. She was never really cut out for being a server but..... if the cafe needed her, she wouldn't back out. She just had to stay calm. She took a deep breath and walked out and saw table nine. As soon as she saw the guy sitting there, her face went pretty red. Oh, Benny. You better be pretty grateful for this. She thought as she walked up to the customer.
"M-may I t-take your o-order?" She asked as she tried to stay as calm as she could. It wasn't working at all. Suddenly, she heard the guy playing the guitar at the other table. Immediately, she felt a lot of her stress go away. She really wished she would've brought her guitar today so she could've played with him but she was working right now. She took another breath and calmed herself as the guy answered her.

"Umm, yeah can I have herbal tea and one of those lemon tarts?" Hadden asked, checking out the waitress. "Is everyone in this cafe always nervous around customors?" Laughing at the thought Hadden shook his head in amusement. "There was this kid that got beat red just by looking at me. There was no hidden secret he was attracted to me. That guy could be no older than 12. What a kid..."
Leaning against the back of the booth, Hadden looked up at the waitress. "Do you find me attractive?" he asked with a smirk.

As the girl darted away, he called out to her. "By the way, the names Hadden. Remember that next time."
What a woman...This resturant really is interesting. he thought, laughing out loud. He took a pen out from his pocket and started doodling on a napkin waiting for his order as the sound of the strumming guitar strings echoed throughout the cafe.

Aiko rushed into the kitchen, her face bright red. She quickly caught her breath and tried to shake the thought of Hadden from her mind. It didn't work. His handsome face was stuck in there. She listened to the guitar as she quickly got everything and walked back out to him.
"Here's your Herbal tea and lemon tart." she quickly gave them to him and tried to smile although she knew her face was still red.
"Please enjoy your meal" she said as she turned and started walking away.

Before Hadden could speak to her, Benny quickly grabbed Aiko's arm and dragged her into the kitchen. "So? Do you see what I mean?" he asked, "That guys is impossible! But..." his face flushed again before he could say any more. Why do the hot guys always have to be such jerks? Benny thought, still holding Aiko's hand. "Did you get his name?"

Aiko tried to smile slightly and knelt down beside him. "Yah, I see what you mean." Her face went red again as she remembered his laugh. It sounded amazing and she wished she could make him laugh again.
"His name is Hadden...." She said quietly as she remembered she didn't say her name and face palmed.
"Oh gosh.... I'm an idiot.... I didn't give him my name....." She felt so embarrassed that she completely forgot. She'd have to go out there again to give him his reciet anyway so there was another chance

Sandy got straight to work, quickly tying her hair up in a loose ponytail and smoothing down her pale, blue dress. She refilled the pepper and salt shakers without spilling a drop. Napkins were quickly distributed around the place and she grabbed a cloth wiping any spots of dirt that she came across. She observed the awkward interaction between Benny and Aiko with the beautiful red headed man, who she overheard was called Hadden. The quieter of the two men was playing a guitar and singing softly. Sandy felt a tugging at her heart strings. It was strange, as though the music was trying to remind her of something. Something that was long forgotten. Sandy's musings was broken when she noticed a hair on the guitar playing guy. She awkwardly sidled up to the man.
"Hi, you have a hair on your shoulder, do you mind if I get it? Sorry I'm sort of OCD about that kind of thing," she smiled. The man's strumming made her want to burst out into song. Weird she thought I haven't sung in the longest time... why ever not?

Laura opened her eyes slowly, not wanting to move from her heavenly bed. She glanced at the clock, and immediately jumped up. She was late for work. Again.

She had a quick shower before getting dressed into some shorts with tights, a plain white t-shirt with a shirt and a beanie. After making herself presentable with make-up, Laura rushed out of the house. She didn't have time for breakfast, and besides, she could grab something on the cafe.

She arrived at the cafe, and took a deep breath before entering. Already people had arrived, not like she expected any less. Benny and Aiko were serving a gorgeous red headed boy, though why they both needed to serve him, she had no idea. Someone was playing music on a guitar, and Sandy was talking to him.

"-name is Hadden...." Laura heard Aiko say quietly, obviously referring to the red headed man. "Oh gosh.... I'm an idiot.... I didn't give him my name....." Laura grinned and rolled her eyes. Did that mean Aiko liked someone? But Aiko was so quiet!

Laura grabbed a bun from the display counter, diving into it as she walked into the back. This was her breakfast, after all, and she was starving. After checking herself in the mirror, Laura walked out again, giving a smile to Benny and Aiko as she did so.

She walked over to where the boy the two had referred to as Hadden sat, but walked past him, grabbing a chair from a nearby table. She placed it beside Hadden's table, and sat down.

"Two people in there are talking about you," Laura said, indicating with her thumb towards the kitchen. "Seems you made quite an impression." She raised an eyebrow at him, and gave him a glance up and down, pretending to be unimpressed. "You're Hayden, right?" she had purposely misprounounced his name, and as she waited for his answer, she drummed her black, painted nails on the table.

Aiko heard her talking to him and finally decided it was time to forget about him. She quickly got up and patted Benny on the head and tried to smile at him as she quickly got out his receipt, brought it to him, and walked back to the kitchen without talking.
He wouldn't like you either way. Better to not start some dumb drama. She thought as she quickly got back to work.
Your too weird and silent... And get flustered easily... Just forget about him. She thought as she quickly washed her hands and got back to work.

"As a matter of fact-" Hadden stopped as he saw the raven haired girl walk towards his table. She quickly dropped off the reciept and hurried away back to work. His eyes followed her as she walked back to the kitchen in amusement. "As a matter of fact I think you are being to intrusive on my personal life for girl who works here," he continued.

Hadden put the money he owed on the table and scooted out of the booth. Hiding inside the bills was the napkin he had drawn on of the shy waitress and underneath the portrait was a phone number. Hadden made sure the red head wouldn't see it or else it would never reach its destination. "See ya later ginger." he said walking away.

He stopped by the guy who was playing the music and flipped a coin on the table. "Sorry man, that's all I have. Keep it up." Then turning towards the kitchen he cupped his hand by his mouth and called out, "Catch ya later Benny!" A small crash could be heard behind the closed door as a small voice could be heard crying, "Oh no!" Hadden's laughter echoed throughout the cafe as he pushed the door open and walked out into the sun filled day.

Aiko quickly flinched as she heard the crash and ran over to Benny to help him.
"A-are you okay Benny?" She asked as she helped him up and helped him pick everything up. Once done, she walked back out to collect the money and as soon as she picked up, she blushed slightly as she saw what was waiting for her. She saw a portrait of herself that Hadden drew of her on a napkin. Underneath it, his phone number. She quickly went to the cash register and put the money in that he paid and put the napkin in her pocket.
Maybe I should call him after work.... I never did give him my name... She thought as she walked back into the kitchen and washed her hands again before getting back to work. She couldn't believe that he actually left that for her. She thought she left a horrible impression when she met him. She also thought he'd go for Laura instead of herself but She guessed it didn't matter anymore. She wasn't going to be rude and ignore what he left for her.

Millie was placing orders behind the counter, a meeting would be held she thought to let the new workers know about the rules later. "maxi Benny can you come here a sec I need to talk to you please.." she decided to tell her about her other dream, a concerned eyes that seemed to want to cry, but didn't and Benny looked like he needed something to help him with turnin red, can't have a red buy boy which made her laugh. "sandy take these orders out and aiko please wait on the small family table yes? I have to talk to those two for a sec. Come to the employee room" her two best people her family she had to talk to them before the day got busy. The dream made her cry and hold her stomach, a man called her name but his face seemed similar yet unfamiliar in her dream she hugged him she was happy two girls came up too her. Always ends with the girls, she was now waiting in the employee room cluthig her shirt. Benny always brought out a motherly side she didn't hate it, she wanted to know if wanted to move up from busboy.

Maxie was somewhat shocked, but then again she was having a tuff time more so now. Every year since she met her those dreams would resurface all the time for a week. She kept quiet but feared she would crack, to be dealing with all that and keep a straight face. She watched er walk by in a daze. "I'll be right there mill..but.." she didn't respond as she looked to Benny,"let aiko or sandy clean up, she looks serious kiddo.." she took his hand and patted his head he felt like a kid brother,"maybe it's good news..maybe she'll let you help out prepping or waiting tables in a cute costume." she teased

Benny's eyes widened in horror. "No way! I will never wear a costume like that!" he said as he ran away. His pace subsided when he remembered that there was no running allowed in the cafe. Benny's anxiety grew as he kept wondering what Millie wanted to say to him and Maxine. He knew the two were hiding something from him, but he didn't know what. Before Benny went to the employee room he decided to get something sweet from the kitchen to ease his nerves.
There he saw Aiko working hard over the counter on something, but he was to short to actually see what it was.
Whatever it is it smells really good. Benny shook his head trying to get the thought out. No, no, I must focus.
"Aiko," he spoke up to get the girl's attention. "I'm freaking out, Maxine says Millie is going to put me in a cute costume and serve to people while wearing it! Plus Millie looks really worried over something. I know you only recently started working, but...Sis has been down lately, and she usually isn't like that. I just don't know what to do."

Aiko looked down at Benny as he called her name.

"I'm freaking out, Maxine says Millie is going to put me in a cute costume and serve to people while wearing it! Plus Millie looks really worried over something. I know you only recently started working, but...Sis has been down lately, and she usually isn't like that. I just don't know what to do."

She thought over what she was going to say a second and then when she got all her thoughts together, she knelt down to look him in the eye. She always felt it was better to talk to someone like this.
"hmm... Well, whenever someones down, I usually bake a cake for them... But you can never truly know whats wrong unless they talk to you... but, you don't want to push it. All you should do is be there to cheer her up." She tried to give a smile as she gave him the best idea he had.
"If you want, when work is over, I could help you make a cake for her... Or if you know she likes something else, I could help you make that." She said, hoping it would help him with his problem.
"And about the costume, if you really don't want to wear it, tell her. Say something like it goes against your rights if she forced you." She said with a smile as she tried to cheer him up. She wasn't that good as cheering people up but she would try her best.

Benny's face perked up when he heard the word cake. "Millie loves vanilla cakes with strawberry icing!" he said enthusiastically, bouncing on the balls of his feet. He walked over to a cabinet and stepped on a stool to help him reach the knobs. The small boy pulled out a recipe for the dessert from a folder and placed it on the counter. Feeling pleased with himself he handed the recipe to Aiko.
"Is it alright if I go home with you from work? If we cook it here Millie will know. My Auntie won't mind if I stay out late as long as I tell her where I am."
