Positive Traits: Jet is very scrappy and driven with an upbeat attitude. She tends to find the silver lining in most situations and tries to be the voice of positivity. She is also a warm person, very caring and kind to others even when they're not so nice to her in return. She's also a dreamer with high hopes of being successful, not just in her career aspirations but in most aspects of her life.

Negative Traits: She wants to be a perfectionist, and gets a little frazzled when things don't quite work out to her expectations. She can be quick to jump to conclusions, which dampers things often. She's clumsy, which makes bartending and waitressing a challenge at times. She wears her emotions on her sleeve, and is not very good at respectfully hiding thoughts and feelings.

About Jettie

Jettie grew up in Overton Nevada, not too far from Las Vegas. She couldn't see the bright lights from her small town backyard, but she could imagine them. It was her childhood dream to dive into the bright neon of the strip and rise up a shining star with her blinking in light all around the city. Of course as time passes and children grow, dreams tend to change and the same was for Jettie.

She learned early in life that someone so clumsy could most likely not succeed in being a fabulous Vegas showgirl. She could barely walk and chew gum on her best day, throw in a fifty pound head dress and three dozen dancers whirling around... You could just forget about it. Singing was out too. Getting booed off stage on karaoke night on multiple occasions has convinced her of that one. The mysterious life of a street magician even crossed her mind but she never found the right cards behind ears and the huge flower bouquet up her sleeve gave her a rash.

It wasn't till late in her high school career that she stumbled upon her passion. While she couldn't exactly be the star of the show, she was still drawn to theater and performances. Acting was out so she soon found herself behind the scenes. Apter all, it didn't take a load of talent to paint a rock. It was the opening night of one of the Seniors' big dramas when Jet was forced into action. The Romeo and the Tybalt had been backstage goofing off when one wedgie turned into a seriously ripped pair of men's tights. No one could seem to find the Drama teacher and Romeo couldn't exactly go on stage with his Scooby Doo boxers showing.

Jet's stagehand intuition was quick to kick in. Finding some needle and thread, and surprisingly not finding it too awkward to be so close to a boy clad in only his underwear, she quickly stitched up the tights. The work wasn't half bad for someone who had never touched sewing tools before. After that, Jet started dabbling in the costume department and quickly grew to love it. Even more so costume designing and creating. She figured that with her love for the skill and her obvious talent that there might just be a place in Vegas for her yet.

However, even with a design degree under her belt, she found that entry level costuming didn't quite pay the bills. So now she finds her self in a quint apartment not too far from the strip. She designs and works behind the scenes on shows as much as she can but still bartends and waitresses in between to keep the lights on. When she's not at one of her jobs she is usually huddled behind a sewing machine or sketching, working to create something fabulous! On the rare occasion she can be convinced to have a little fun and maybe a drink or two she can be found at some of the local bars.

As the man took a better grip on the platter he was balancing, the new woman came up to
greet both of them. Maisie was holding onto the man because he was her only sense of
direction at the moment, until she heard her friend's voice. Amadeus looked at the woman
with an inquisitive look but then smiled comfortingly and nodded. "It was my pleasure serving
you ladies."
He answered then walked off towards the bar where he would catch up with his
close friend Jettie. Maisie heard the girl start to speak. "I'm sorry I lost track of you, but I'm here
now. Are you hungry or anything? We can get something to eat, play the machines, whatever
you want."
It sometimes got on her nerves when Selena was like this. Her normal reactions
were, "I'm not a child Selena." or "I'm fine, stop worrying so much.", but now Maisie knew
that she had caused her friend a lot of worry and caused herself a lot of fear. He reply this time
was "I'm sorry Selena... I'm fine. Whatever you want to do." She truly meant that and she
wanted her friend to have fun without holding her back all the time.

As Amadeus walked away, he served some drinks to a group of very beautiful ladies. But he
could see past outward looks. The only reason in the world they were speaking with him was
because he was outwardly handsome. He had a beautiful heart to match but these ladies didn't
even think about that aspect of the man. He quickly fled back to the bar, setting down his platter
before retreating behind the bar with Jettie. "I swear, sometimes, I regret working in a
casino in the first place."
He uttered, nudging her lightly as he started fufilling his own
drink orders that were coming from the other side of the bar that was quickly filling up. "But
alas is me, at least I get to work with you."

Selena sighed to herself as the man left. In no way was she mad at her human - but only displeased with herself. She kept a watchful eye for good reason. She wasn't going to allow Maisie to have the same fate her last assignment has. The assignment in which she failed.
"Lets go test our luck then, shall we?" she smiled, leading her friend to a slot machine.
"So in reality casinos are total ripoffs and take your money, today we'll pretend otherwise. The objective of these silly machines is to match the symbols. It's rather pointless, but entertaining to watch" Selena said as she swiped her casino card, activating the machine. The same tune that filled the rest of the casino was now closer to their ears. The slot machine was a pirate based one. The little treasure chest was rather cute in Selena's eyes. Setting the amount to spend on the machine with the little arrow buttons, she looked up at Maisie.
"You can get the honor of pulling the lever" Selena smiled, guiding Maisie's hand towards the contraption.
It made Selena terribly sad that her human couldn't see the beauty of the world. She wished her powers could help her friend picture something, but it was out of her grasp to do. The best thing Selena could do for the girl is describe everything is detail.
"So the casino is obviously very noisy. People of all different walks of life are here. Some are dressed in fine designer brand cloth, and others in simple garb. Although I must say you look the best out of all these people here" Selena said gently, waiting for Maisie to pull the red lever.
[b]"The thin carpet below our feet is rather tacky as it is dark green and red, but all public buildings seem to have terrible taste. The machines around us glow in neon lights, screaming for those passing by to play them. A bar isn't far off as well. People there seem to be enjoying themselves, but looks can be deceiving. The man that helped you is over there as well, he's a nice fellow"[/b] she continued. Selena stopped her voice when she saw a little angel and demon slot machine in the other row. She mentally made a note that the two of them would go over there to try that one as well. In a casino there is little a blind person could do, but Selena hoped her human enjoyed the change in environment. As much as midnight walks were nice, change was always a good thing.

#, as written by Beeps
Somewhere between the constant customers, Jettie's conversation with Amadeus had taken a back burner. At least for now. Bartenders were very accustomed to having simple chats take a hour or so to discuss. She knew they'd pick back up as soon as they passed each other again or during the next lag in orders.

A Red Devil.

One of the casino's signature drinks. A mixture of top shelf vodka, Southern Comfort, peach schnapps, a touch of gin, grenadine, triple sec and orange juice shaken with ice. It made for one sinfully delicious drink and somehow seemed perfect for the gorgeous redhead.

Finishing up the woman's drink, Jet served it with another smile and started the woman a tab before moving on to the next patron. As she shifted her attention on the man before her she felt an overwhelming sense of deja vu. She was quite certain that she'd never met this person before but still there was something familiar about him. Someone she had attended school with? No. An actor? No, that wasn't it either.

Hmm...

"Bourbon, no ice," he requested.

As she nodded and selected a slightly tulip shaped glass for his drink, she was brushing off the recollection as perhaps just have having seen him around the casino before. It was a hugely popular establishment and even though she saw hundreds, if not thousands, of faces each night, most of them one-time tourists, there were a few that stuck in her memory. That was it, she was convinced. Just another gambler in the sea of slots and game tables.

Distracted by her thoughts, she added a large sphere shaped piece of ice to the glass before slowly covering it with a top shelf bourbon that she hoped he would like. Jim Bean Black. He hadn't specified, so she was just guessing.

"Here ya go." Jettie carefully placed the glass tumbler before him as she gave him one of her cheery smiles.
