Image
Reason they came to Redwash City: Back in her old home Elizabeth always had a lot of ambition. But things came to a screeching halt when she met Jeff. He was charming, to a fault, and she had too much fun with him. She dropped out of school and got into hardcore drugs. One night after partying way too hard she woke up, but Jeff didn't. She didn't have anywhere to go, her family disowned her, and her true friends were gone. They had all moved on in their lives. She was alone and realized it could have easily been her who died... she needed to start over... a new name a new scene a new life
Personality: She puts on a hard front, very rarely letting anyone in from fear of loosing them. She is driven, craving a new life. In reality though, she is shaken by anxiety and treading the waters of depression trying not to drown.
Quirks: Chain smoker, stutters when drunk
Occupation: Nothing at the moment, but will seek one in time.

So begins...

Spencer

As the first train of the morning rolled up to Redwash, Spencer felt a weird mix of anticipation and dread. She would have the opportunity to make something of herself, anything she wanted, but... she was worried about throwing away this life like she did the last. She shook her head to clear it. No thinking about any of that, she told herself sternly. The train jolted to it's final stop and she grabbed her bag. Glancing out the window, she noticed the weather looked pretty nasty. She was definitely not dressed for it, but what could she do? She brought one backpack of her belongings, and couldn't exactly fit a winters coat. She was already wearing an oversized flannel shirt, but dug into her bag and snatched her black knit cardigan to layer with it.

Once she finally got off the train platform she took in her surroundings. She'd never been here before and didn't really have any idea of where to start. There wasn't many shops open this early on the main strip, but a coffee shop caught her eye. She made a beeline for it. It really wasn't that cold, if she had the proper cloths she would have been fine. But the warm light of the shop, and the idea of shelter from the wind was nice. Plus caffeine was kind of her... bridge drug... She'd gone cold on the others, for the most part, but caffeine was a multiple times a day necessity.

A few minutes later she was at the shop, but noticed that there was a guy that looked like he was midway through opening. She looked around, but no other option was present. She decided to knock, worst thing that could happen is he would send her away.

Domonic Castell
As Domonic moved into the kitchen to grab his apron and tie it on he heard a faint knock coming from the front door. He checked his watch, People usually didn't show up this early. He pulled a hairband out from his pocket and tied his hair up as he moved to the front of the shop to see who it was. It was a girl, tiny looking in her baggy clothes. He examined her through the glass. She was under dressed for the weather this morning but he didn't think much of it. It was only the beginning of autumn so he just figured she left the house not thinking it would be cold. But either way he wasn't gonna let her freeze to death.

He walked up to the door and opened it, giving her one of his usual smiles. "Hi there, I'm not really open right now but you're welcome to come in and get what you need." He said, holding the door open for her.

She smiled gratefully at the man who let her in, making only brief eye contact. Eye contact was hard for her, but only to people she didn't know. She took in the surroundings, it was a cozy shop. Not commercially fake like some shops, genuinely unique. She took a seat in a chair in the corner, "I can wait until you've set up. I just needed to warm up for a minute." She rubbed her hands together for emphasis. "I'm new in town, do you know if there are any thrift shops around?" She would need to find a place to stay today, but warmer clothing came in pretty high on her priority list as well.

She hoped she didn't come off as rude just sitting while he was working to set up. After a few minutes of this thought tugging on her brain she asked if there was anything she would be able to do to help. "It's the least I can do since you let me in before you opened.." she added.

Domonic nodded as he listened to the girl, "Ah i see. New folks seem to arrive everyday. Most go straight into hiding though, not a cafe at the crack of dawn." He chuckled, looking out the large glass windows and seeing the black sky starting to lighten.

He looked over the girl again, "As for thrift stores, they aren't hard to find. In a town like Redwash, there's a pretty penny to be made in things people want to get rid of."

He grabbed a stray coffee mug with the intent on cleaning it, "The closest one however is a couple blocks down from here to the left." He walked over to the large sink behind the counter and turned on the hot water. She was gonna need a clean cup to drink out of, so it seemed as good a time as any to start washing dishes. Though, the sweets and small things to eat needed to be done before he opened. And he hoped he could get it done in time. Domonic thought to himself as he took a soapy sponge to the mug.

After the mug was washed and he placed it down to dry he was about to ask her what she would like when she cut him off by asking if she could help with anything.

Domonic bit his lip in thought, "...Well, are you good at following a recipe?" He asked her. His usual smile still on his face as another soft knock came from the front door. He looked up to see another young girl. He chuckled to himself, "Two in one morning before opening. Jesus Domonic, what have you gotten into." he thought, looking the second girl over. His smile grew a little as he noticed the apron she was wearing being from the bakery up the street, and he waved her in.

Straight to hiding, she laughed ironically at herself. That's what she thought she was doing, for lack of anywhere else to go. The sun was starting to come up and it was a pleasant sight to see the light wash over the central strip of Redwash. She looked out of the window of the shop as he directed her to the nearest thrift shop, she couldn't see it from the coffee shop but it helped her to picture its location so she knew where to head later.

"Yeah I can do whatever," she told him, standing up and starting to walk over to him. She froze at the sound of a knock, wondering if it was opening time already. But no, it was a girl who was also in uniform carrying a box of deliveries. She saw that the shop owner at waved her in, so Spencer went and opened the door for her. She nodded at the girl when she entered the shop saying a quick, "Hey".

Maya smiled and greeted the young woman, who appeared to be leaving, with a polite 'Good morning!'. Then, she approached the man who seemed to be the owner of the shop. "Sorry Mr. Castell, are you already open? I hope I'm not interrupting! I have the usual deliveries from boss?" She smiled sheepishly, holding out the bag awkwardly. While doing this, she glanced around the interior of the shop -- it really was quite a quaint little thing. The decorum was just so pretty.

Maya wondered vaguely who the girl in the shop was -- as someone who had a tendency to butt into others' business, no matter how awkward she may seem, she made it her business to try and acquaint herself with everyone. She made a mental note to talk to her if she saw her at anytime after work.

Domonic Castell

"No, i'm not open yet. But no worries. All is well." He said softly, taking the bag from her.

"Make sure to tell him thank you for me." He smiled as she glanced around the shop. It wasn't much to look at. It was simple and just how he liked it. The floors were a light hard wood and he had tables and chairs to match. The walls were a dark blue and covered with art he had collected over the years and the ceiling was black with constellations scattered across it. He had always loved the stars and astrology. Ever since he and Amira and snuck out and laid in the family garden together as she talked his ear off telling him the stories behind each one.

If anyone had been watching close enough they would have seen a slight frown flash across Domonic's face as he shook the thought from his head. Why did he always seem to reminisce about everything? He would be doing so good and then something would remind him of one thing or another and it was back to square one. He turned to hide his face and placed the bag down on the counter behind him as his mother's words flashed though his mind.

"You'll burn in hell for such sinful thoughts. You dirty urchin. I knew from the start you'd be a bastard and make my life miserable." He winced, they still pinched a little to remember. It was a week before the family decided to disown him that he heard those words.

With a deep breath Domonic cleared his head. This was no time to get mopey, he had guests. He turned back around. His smile returned and looked towards the girl who was first in his shop. "Well miss if you're confident you can do it, would you come back to the kitchen and start prepping the food items for today?" He asked cheerfully.

"Oh, that's good! I will. Um, if you don't mind, I can stay and help out if you needed any? We heard you're, uh, kind of short-handed and we have plenty of people so... Plus, there's no way boss will mind if I stayed to help you out? Ehehe..." Maya laughed awkwardly, feeling mildly uncomfortable at the slightly sour expression she saw on Domonic's face. He didn't make it obvious, but it made her kind of nervous all the same. He seemed intimidating in a way, despite his sweet demeanour. She had a feeling she shouldn't make this guy mad.

Turning her attention to the girl behind her, Maya's curiosity peaked. Everything about this girl screamed mysterious, from her clothes to her hair to her eyes. Instead of voicing this, Maya just smiled toothily at the girl.

Kiffen had only recently exited the bus. The anxiousness he'd felt cramped in a small space with two dozen or so people was beginning to pass, but what was he doing? He was too young to be trying this, too young to be leaving. He hadn't given anyone notice, he'd simply picked up and left.

The streets themselves were terrifying, their unfamiliarity made them seem larger, they appeared as if they were looming over him, intimidating him (as if it weren't already easy to do). Why had he done this? His home life wasn't that bad, he could have simply gone to medical school and stayed in the residence there. Why was he throwing his life away like this?

But then again, he didn't want to be connected to that family again.

He approached what looked like a coffee shop, where a small group stood inside and chatted. A part of him screamed not to interrupt, but the other part whispered that he needed to get his bearings. Kiffen decided a while ago that he didn't want to listen to people who screamed any more, and so he tentatively approached the door, weakly rapping on the glass with his fist.

"E-Excuse me!" He called out with a small crack in his voice. "A-A-Are... A-Are you open?"

Domonic Castell

Domonic turned his attention to the girl in the apron, "No it's alright miss. You're on the job right now. I couldn't take you away from that and possibly get you in trouble. Thank you for the offer though." Domonic decided to continue washing dishes as he waited for the dark haired girl's answer.

"By the way you two, What are your names?" He asked over his shoulder as he filled the large skin with warm, soapy water.

A third knock came to the door and Domonic shook his head and chuckled. "Maybe this is a warning on how busy today will be." He thought to himself, turning back around to see who it was. Through the glass he could make out a young boy with large eyes as he peaked his head in to ask if the cafe was open.

He smiled and waved the boy in, "No, I'm not open but you're welcome to come in."

"O-Oh... oh, alright... I-I-If it's not a bother, sir." He mumbled out, keeping his gaze on the ground as he went to enter the room. He stole a few glances at the others in the café, nobody he knew of course, though he did feel more of an urge to speak to the red-haired one. Something about the other girl bothered him. Perhaps she reminded him too much of some girls he'd gone to high-school with, perhaps her 'mysterious' air put him off. Either way, he tried not to dwell.

"Ehm... I-I can er... I can p-p-pay for food once... once it's open, if that's alright." He mumbled out, clutching the strap of his satchel.

"Oh, are you sure? All right then, I'll be heading back?" Maya said politely, secretly disappointed she couldn't stay longer. It really seemed just as her boss had described it. As she turned around, she heard Domonic's question and answered, "I'm Maya!" before noticing the boy walking inside. She flashed him a smile and walked out, back to the bakery.

Five minutes later, Maya was back in the coffee shop. "So, er, boss told me to come right on back and help you out, since we have plenty of hands on board anyway? So, here I am!" She grinned brightly at everyone in the room.

Kiffen glanced around nervously, subconsciously beginning to edge back to the corner of the room as he observed the others interacting. He'd just wait until he could buy food, and then he could head off on his way without bothering anyone else... yeah... that was a solid plan.

"E-Er... help with... what e-e-exactly?" he asked softly, unable to help himself and cursing his own inability to shut up right after.

Maya Abbot

Maya looked over to the skinny boy near the corner of the shop. She noticed he seemed to be trying to make himself less noticeable -- the slouch, the stutter, the quiet voice -- it all pointed to him being shy, possibly insecure. She smiled at him and said, "Just to, you know, help run the shop? Baking, making coffee, all that. Say, what's your name? I don't think I've seen you around before!".

Maya was wondering why all of these new people were coming out of nowhere -- was there a running away trend or something she didn't know about? First the mysterious looking girl, and now this rich-boy. At least, he seemed rich, judging by his clothed. She wondered why one who looked so privileged would be so shy.
