VEE

Vee sat as the cat’s rough tongue rubbed against her face cleaning her from her previously frosted self, up until he choked on her hair which she couldn't help but let out a slight giggle.
She stood up on the counter, frosting still clinging to her “Look Korbey, I don’t really think, this is all that bad.”

Korbin slightly leaned in “I was gone for three minutes tops and you managed to apparently, destroy a cake.” There was a small smirk coming across his face, even though she could tell he was annoyed and maybe a little amazed at how she fast she could get into trouble when he isn’t around. “Anyway, lets go.” gesturing to his head.

Springing back up to the top of his head Vee lightly grabbed onto his hair like usual. Korbin reached into his pocket, “Uh, How much would cover it?” he asked no one in particular.

“That’s all, thank you” Euphemia said softly as she dug though her purse for her wallet. “I suppose it’s the same price as last week, then.” She said pulling out a crisp fifty, as it seemed to be the smallest bill she had. “Oh dear, I suppose this is too much though isn't it?” she said handing it to him, studying Kris' face she noticed something different yet familiar about his facial structure. He looked a great deal like her George, but that was impossible and not something she should bring up.

She waited patiently for her change, or his response. "Or" she mused. "I'll be in next week anyway, I could pre buy my order next week couldn't I?" she asked unsure if he would allow that.


((IDK what to write!!!!)))

Needless to say, Howard was in a state of shock. He didn't know what to do about Adam. He'd always been so in control, so stable that seeing him this weak was kind of disturbing for Howard. But, Adam had saved Howard's life, and now Howard had to do the same. So he gathered his composure and after making sure Adam wasn't getting any worse, ran out of the house and into town, to look for help.

.....

When Howard returned to the downtown, he ran into the first place he saw on instinct. Inside was a well dressed woman and a man with a beard behind the counter. He was exhausted from the running and took a few deep breathes, looking around the room as he did so. After the second breath however, he noticed the card in the woman's hand and recognized it as Adam's.

"Look..." Howard spat through another pant, trying to get his words out. "I know you just met him, but Adam needs help and I don't... I don't know this magic stuff and he's out cold but..." the pressure was mounting on Howard as he struggled to get each word out, rubbing his face to help himself concentrate. "He looks stable, but I don't know how long that will last, so please. Someone in this town has to be able to help."

(This is really sucky, but I've been suffering from extreme writer's block lately (and I can't write that well anyways), so, be warned.)

Aubrey Evans
Aubrey smiled at Howard, taking the card. Once he left, Aubrey blushed, her cheeks turning into a tomato red. Hearing a sound near the counter, she turned to see what it was. After not finding anything, although she wasn't looking as hard as she should've, she turned back to the counter, twirling the business card between her fingers.

"What'll it be?" Aubrey asked. She tapped her feet to a beat, almost jumping up and down. She smiled at Anubis, who came in from time to time.

(Told you.)

Kris Metzger

Kris nodded, gesturing towards the cash register. "You could pre-buy next week's order, sure. It'd come out to a total of... Eh, I dunno. Probably about thirty bucks with this week and next week's orders combined, assumin' you got the same stuff and all like usual. Might throw in a bologna sample from a recipe I've been tinkering with next week, if it's done in time. Lemme get you all rung up, and we can get you out of here and I can get Sweepy back from Miss Deroove, who has undoubtedly caught him by now and is probably spoilin' him rotten." Kris replied, moving to the register and punching various keys, with Little man shadowing him and impatiently glancing between Kris's calves and the door.

Just as he was about to read the actual total ($27.85) to Euphemia, Howard burst into the shop, stuttering something about magic and Adam being stable. Piecing together what he could, Kris pointed towards Howard with his right hand as he pulled the receipt with his left. "Son, I've no doubt we could find someone or some thing out there able to help that Adam fellow, but you've gotta calm down a bit. Gonna give yourself a heart attack, runnin' like a man possessed and all. Now, did you see any kind of chalk circle on the floor, or empty flasks, or anything alchemical like that? If this is just an experiment gone wrong I might be able to whip somethin' up, but otherwise we're gonna need a witch." Kris said calmly, walking back to Euphemia and handing her the receipt. On the floor, Little man began tugging at Kris's pants, trying to pull him towards the door but doing little other than shaking his pants leg.

In the bakery, Sweepy rested calmly in Lifaria's arms. She wasn't telling him to do anything, but for some reason seemed to be rewarding him and praising him anyway. Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, Sweepy merely leaned back and gave out the occasional contented croak. Normally, by this point, his "brother", Little man, would have come dragging Kris to him and ratting him out, ending his little adventure before he actually got anywhere, but this time it seemed that either Kris and Little man didn't notice he was gone, or Kris was busy helping the lady who came in every week. Never mind any of that, though. Sweepy was getting cake, in spite of the fact that he didn't have any real way of eating or ingesting said cake.

Lifaria stood and watched the woman behind the counter blush and then greet the dog-man thing she knew as Anubis. Anubis, it seemed, was one of the few besides herself who actually wanted people to know who or what they were. Many folks just kept it hidden until discovered otherwise. Lifaria shrugged and patted Sweepy on his dry, boney head. The texture made her cringe softly, but beside that the bone gollum seemed happy and content, so she responded appropriately with a smile. As she waited for Anubis to state his order, Lif glanced over the cakes behind the glass of the counter, then peeked past the woman into the back and saw who she assumed was the owner, Sasha, making a cake. Lifaria's mind wondered as a smile rew across her face, the same smile she bore just moments ago when speaking to Kris. Maybe they need some help cooking the cakes she thought to herself as she waited in line.

Euphemia looked at Kris watching his lips move all the while hearing the pieces not the whole of what he was saying.. She was more caught up in his resemblance to George it was quite remarkable. Twenty seven and eighty five, it was more than the Fair price. She waited for him to continue when suddenly a blond haired man entered the shop. He was clearly an acquaintance of Adam.

"I know little of magic, just a strong enough head to keep away from it."

She exclaimed in a frightened stance. It seemed almost unreal, just seeing a man she believed was dead was a amazing to say the least, but now to discover that same man could die now. To find him only to loss him was an anomaly Euphemia was all to filmier with. Looking at the boy, she felt something twinge inside her soul. "I can drive you," she offered, pointing to her car parked outside. "I dare say it will be much faster then running."

Everything seemed to be moving so fast for Howard, but he slowed himself down and took some more deep breathes as per the man's advice. With each breathe his heart rate seemed to decrease more and more until he was finally calm enough to speak. "I don't think this was an experiment. Adam would have told me if it was. He was trying to see something.." Howard paced for a moment trying to remember everything he could about the area and state he found Adam in. "There was some blood and this book on his desk. The page it was turned to said something about divination, but I'm not sure what that is. And then there were these notes..." Howard had only spoke for a few moments until the woman in the shop interrupted him and offered to help him, claiming to know something about magic. Not having time to check the validity of what she was saying, Howard shook his head in confirmation as she pointed to her car outside.

"Thank you so much. And sir, if you find anyone who can help. Send them to the house. The address should be on the card he gave you." and with that he followed the woman to her car and the two drove back to the house. As the pulled into the driveway, Howard quickly left the car and entered the faded yellow home he shared with his long time friend, assuming the woman would follow him. He maneuvered through the kitchen and entered the living room, the seemingly cursed undead still lifeless on the couch where Howard had left him. "He's still alive. I can tell that much, but he won't wake up. It's like a coma or something. I found him in his office, if you need to check that out." Howard said in a solemn tone, motioning towards Adam's office as he looked over his friend once again, hoping this woman could help.

Kris Metzger

"I'll be damned. Some sort of ritual, not an experiment. Somethin' new happens every day out here, eh Little man?" Kris sighed, glancing down at the golem pulling on his pants. Little man merely croaked in return, gesturing towards the door frantically. Sighing again, Kris untied his apron and tossed it towards the cash register, making sure to keep it from touching the floor. "Alright, boys, listen here. I need two of you to get my alchemy and my travel kit from down in the lab. Little man and I are headed out to handle some business, and I expect this place to be clean as a whistle when I get back, alright? No goofin' around and for the love of god don't get yourselves disassembled while I'm gone. We're runnin' low on ribs as it is." Kris snapped, pointing at two golems and moving towards the door with Little man hot on his heels. Two golems, one without a head entirely, scurried down the back stairs to the basement and rushed back with a well-kept binder and a black leather briefcase. "I'm locking the door, boys. No one goes in or out while I'm gone, understand? Gotta keep this place in some sort of order." Kris said, grabbing the binder and suitcase from the golems and moving outside with Little man.

Locking the door behind him, Kris set out towards the bakery just up the street. "I'll see if there ain't someone in the bakery that would be able to help with somethin' like this. That and see if I can't find Sweepy while I'm there." He mused, opening the door and following Little man inside. "As much as I hate to interrupt, and I really do, but we've got a bit of an emergency goin' on with someone who just moved here, goes by Adam. I need to find some sort of witch or wizard, and I ain't too good at the magic type of stuff or really pointin' out anyone who is. Any of y'all fit that description?" Kris said hurriedly, looking around at the various people in the shop. Little man, unaware of the change in task, toddled over with determination towards Lifaria and began croaking loudly at Sweepy, who croaked in return and gestured between himself and the cake display case.

Euphemia, walked into the house feeling like it had been ages since she moved (apologies didn't realize anyone posted.) into the small yellow house. It was quaint, and a part of her didn't want to intrude but the sun was still high in the sky and she really did need to get out of it. As she entered the room, she saw Adam and her heart sank a little. The first thought in her mid was "how" the second, well to be perfectly frank her mind was still trying to get around the How. Even after see him in the shop moments before, the how was important, the man she knew all those years ago he wouldn't... could he have... known about this world they were currently in. The occult everything, she hadn't at the time in fact it was a sin for her to even think of anything that she now views as normal.

"I um..." she stammered not sure what to say. Feeling like a lifetime was passing before her eyes, she thought back to the first time she met him, in the little storefront her husband owned.

"My God, he's such a foolish man." she mused moving to the sofa.
