2.) We do not sell guns or air rifles to children under 18 years of age
3.) We do not sell rap music to anyone who ships at our store
4.) We take no shit from anyone. (Added that myself.)

While equipped with the standard issue....nothing, I am very proficient with my fists, allowing troublesome punks to fear something.

So begins...

Entering the doors of Joe-Mart, the young guard couldn't really fathom how fast he got this job. It was as if someone was waiting for the application, and accepted it as soon as it came in. That being said, he didn't complain-at least he got a job. However, he was moderately tire; he wasn't used to waking up this early, but he figured that it was good to get in the groove of this if he wanted to keep the job.

With his uniform on, he decided to clock in before going to the lounge, which he figured would be where the other employees would be before the day really started. He knew the location simply because he decided to 'scout the perimeter' beforehand, and was glad he did so. He made his way to the lounge.

Opening the door, he chose not to get on the floor and walk the dinosaur and instead looked up at the people in the room. He raised his hand and smiled warmly before saying, "Hello."

After Andy shook her hand, he abruptly left the room seemingly to go after Sam. Paige sat down on the floor, though she was tempted to climb up onto one of the bunk beds. Not soon after Andy left the room another man entered it, smiling and raising his hand, saying nicely "Hello." She set down her empty mug and waved back at the new man. "Hey, I'm Paige and that's..." she paused and glanced over at the other girl's name tag. “Ashton." She looked down at her own nametag and thought it looked rather... plain. I'll have to decorate it will something later tonight, she thought to herself, isn't that what you're supposed to do with nametags?

Standing again she scooped the mug off the floor and wondered where to return it, deciding to place it on one of the boxes and she would ask Andy about it later. "I'm going to go and find out where the frozen foods section is, cuz' that's where I'll be working. Anyone want to take a walk around the store with me?" she offered, looking around.

Following the girl with his eyes, Dalton noticed that he wasn't the only one unfamiliar with the rest of the party. They must have just met, seeing as she had to look down at 'Ashton's' nametag before speaking her name. Well, it made him feel a bit more comfortable now that he knew he wasn't the only one not completely familiar with the setting.

She asked if anyone wanted to go with her, which he gladly accepted mostly because he was probably the only one who knew the area. He'd have to thank his strolls around the place for that. "Yeah, I might as well go with you." he said with his same smile.

"Yeah, I might as well go with you." the new man said. She walked up to him and looped her arm into his, not caring if he found it uncomfortable. She felt like skipping, and hopefully he could keep up a pace that would allow her to do so. With a gentle tug she pulled him along, "Great, it's always fun to go with a buddy." she commented happily.

Paige began to pick up her feet and made little skipping-movement, hoping she wouldn't trip or something, and set off in the direction she thought the frozen foods might be. "So, I told you my name, but I haven't heard yours." she said coyly and smirked up at him.

"So, I told you my name, but I haven't heard yours." she said coyly and smirked up at him.

"Oh, it's Dalton." he answered unsteadily and briefly dropping his smile. Normally, kids or girlfriends looped their arms around someone elses, but as far as he was told, Paige was neither. Oh well, not like he was complaining. I mean, who would?

She didn't seem to be one to waste time walki--skipping, so he went along and picked up the pace a bit. However, he had to redirect her as she headed off in the wrong direction if she was headed towards the frozen foods, although the thought of not telling her did cross his mind. About halfway through a wierd walk-skip motion that he was doing, he decided to speak up.

"So... you seem rather... happy. Do you really like this job? Should I have your enthusiasm?" his smile just now recovering after the earlier surprise.

She was glad Dalton had come along, noticing when he redirected her when she was going the wrong way. "So... you seem rather... happy. Do you really like this job? Should I have your enthusiasm?"

"My last job was in a factory. Long shifts, bad hours, and horrible working conditions. This is an upgrade... kind of." She looked up at the ceiling-signs and saw the 'Frozen Foods' section, and she slowed down her skipping until she was just walking. "A job is a job, I just feel good about today, though I'm sure the daily grind will get tiring eventually and we'll all be sour workers in no time." she half-joked, looking down the aisle they just passed.

"Also," she continued, "I'll be in the frozen foods during summer, so I won't get hot. And I don't think I'll have to work too hard, because how often does someone need help in the frozen food section?" Paige herself had never needed help, she figured she'd be in charge of clean-up and organizing her section, and the rest of the time she'd either be doing another task or chilling in the lounge. “You can have my enthusiasm if you want.” She laughed.

"You won't be hot, you say? Well, I don't agree with that...." he flirted...or just complemented, he wasn't sure. However, he was happy to know that she wasn't just happy and that she wasn't insane. He heard that people who were this happy all the time for no reason were..... unfit. But, she didn't seem so, and that made him a bit more open.

"As long as people don't get into brawls often, I'm sure my job may be just as easy." he stated, giving a light chuckle. "However, if somebody gives you grief, just call for me, and I'll show them the door....or my foot. Depends on the situation."

Finally noticing the cooler air the surrounded the area they just entered, he shuddered. Dalton, originally hailing from the Grand Canyon State, wasn't as used to cooler temperatures and was rather vulnerable to them. That did not mean he didn't like them; he just reacted moreso to them. "Hmm, I hope you like the environment, I sure do." he added, looking around for no real reason.

"You won't be hot, you say? Well, I don't agree with that...." her cheeks reddened at his comment and she grinned, looking down at her feet while her face returned to it's normal shade before returning her gaze to the surrounding aisle. She reminded herself that her arm was looped around his and her grin widened.

"However, if somebody gives you grief, just call for me, and I'll show them the door....or my foot. Depends on the situation."

"I'll defiantly be calling you if I need a strong man to help me, or if the frozen food section gets boring and I need someone to keep me entertained." she raised one of her eyebrows playfully and continued to smirk. She shivered when the cool reached her, but she enjoyed the cold compared to the hot temperatures the outside would reach by the afternoon.

"I'll defiantly be calling you if I need a strong man to help me, or if the frozen food section gets boring and I need someone to keep me entertained."

"I won't mind that one bit." he commented, taking a deep breath. "Colder air smells...fresher." he explained as he kept a grin on his face. The fact that she blushed earlier meant that she didn't necessarily hate him. That was good. Then again, the looped arm probably wouldn't be happening if she hated him in the first place. THEN AGAIN, why would she hate him? They just met.

"I don't think I'll be too busy at daytime, so don't be afraid to pull me away." he reassured...for him or for her though? Probably one of his bigger fears is that he'll be stuck doing nothing with no one the whole day.

"I won't be afraid to. I have a feeling the first week might be a little slow." Paige surveyed the foods that were in the aisle, there were a lot of things like pizzas, burgers, fries, and nuggets around. "I think working with food might be a problem if I get hungry during a work shift." she mumbled half to herself.

She took in a deep breath and exhaled through her mouth, watching to see if it would make a puff. "I'm just waiting for when I will be able to see my breath... so I can pretend I'm a dragon or something." she laughed and attempted it again, not seeing anything.

She may have to bring a sweater here eventually, just in case it got too cold. She hoped that her immune system could take it or else she might be taking a lot of sick days because of colds.

"I won't be afraid to. I have a feeling the first week might be a little slow."

"True... though I'm sure food is very, very interesting. I doubt you'll be bored." he said in his obvious sarcastic tone. He only barely heard her comment about hunger during her shifts. "Well, seeing as I've got a bit more flexibility than you do, not having to be an any one place, I can bring over some smaller things for you, if you're hungry." he offered.

After some heavier exhaling that sounded not unlike someone trying to give birth, Paige explained herself.

"I'm just waiting for when I will be able to see my breath... so I can pretend I'm a dragon or something."

As she attempted it once more, he gave a laugh in response. "I remember doing that when I was younger. I haven't done that in a while though, so..." he inhaled deeply, then exhaled just as she was doing. Nothing came out except the noise from it. "Hmm, maybe when it's colder?"

"Well, seeing as I've got a bit more flexibility than you do, not having to be in any one place, I can bring over some smaller things for you, if you're hungry."

Paige stopped her strange huffing to reply, “That would be awesome.” After he tried to repeat her actions she tried once more before stopping. “Yeah, hopefully it will get cold enough for me to do it, though I doubt the store would have the temperature down that low in case they freeze the customers.” She speculated.

She glanced around a second time and frowned, turning back to Dalton. “Well I don’t know if there’s much I can do so far, so I’m either going to go back to the lounge or take a tour of the place. What do you think?”

“Yeah, hopefully it will get cold enough for me to do it, though I doubt the store would have the temperature down that low in case they freeze the customers.”

Dalton looked towards the frozen foods with longing eyes before sighing. "I guess not... oh well...." he wouldn't have minded that one bit; if a costumer was there long enough to turn into a human popsicle, they weren't buying but staring. However, Dalton was regretfully not the manager of the place, so he couldn't do anything about it.

“Well I don’t know if there’s much I can do so far, so I’m either going to go back to the lounge or take a tour of the place. What do you think?”

Dalton looked at her for a minute and put a bit of thought into the question. He snapped back to reality before answering with a yawn following quick after. "A tour? Well, I can be a guide if you'd like to do that... or we could go back to the lounge. Whichever is fine by me, really."

"A tour? Well, I can be a guide if you'd like to do that... or we could go back to the lounge. Whichever is fine by me, really." Dalton said after a yawn, and for a brief second she wondered if she was boring him.

Though, she was grateful for his friendly attitude and replied swiftly, "Maybe a short tour around and then back to the lounge." She knew if she went back to the lounge she would be drawn to the couches like a magnet, wanting to have a quick cat nap. But whenever she rested during the day it would just set her off somehow, like if she slept in. Paige put her hands behind her back and clasped them together, flexing her shoulders briefly before returning her hands to the side. "Thanks for offering to be my guide." she said a pause, almost forgetting to say it. Just as she was about to ask which ay they should go first she could feel her phone vibrate in her pocket. Paige was used to it, so she didn't react; she thought it would be rude to look at her phone while having a conversation. Besides, she was on the job, which meant no more social fun... or at least until she had made sure there were no camera's watching. What would her new boss think of her?

"Don't stay up late before a job," Dalton spoke in regards to his yawning. He may or may not have gotten less than five hours of sleep, and was now regretting it somewhat.

"Maybe a short tour around and then back to the lounge."

"An awesome combination," he said as he shook his head in an effort to wake himself up. He wasn't anywhere near falling asleep while standing up, but he just felt like he wasn't completely 'there'.

"Thanks for offering to be my guide."

Dalton smiled in response, appreciating her thanks more than she probably knew. "Don't worry about it," he said, about to speak more before being cut off by her phone ringing. He waited a second, and when it became clear to him that she wasn't going to answer it, he started back where he left off. "I think we should start off by heading by electronics," he suggested. "It's one of the closer sections to here,"

Without really waiting for a response, he started towards the place and begun the tour.
