0 · 289 views · located in Newton's Cradle

a character in “The Multiverse”, as played by Sick Puppy

Description

Highly driven and determined, Newton decided she wanted to make a go of running a public house. Having set her intent she begun working in the arcanum stacking and sorting shelves, but soon found her work there done. She then stumbled through a big logistics deal, having dabbled in the subject before, in which she could ern more than enough money to buy and build her dream. She then spent three years finding,designing and building the plot of land using soft woods, Purple obsidian and more to create the establishment she envisioned.

5 foot 7 tall
long dark brown hair.
Dark eyes.
Age: 31
Can usually be found adorning, eloquent yet hardy clothing sutable for her job.
Good with people, so sociable and friendly, with an intelligent and mature head on her shoulders.
She does have a fiesty streak in her, meaning getting on the wrong side of her, usually ends in getting a sharp tongueful. But she doesnt generally hold grudges.

So begins...

The last of the decorators had just left, and Newton was left to admire her new establishment. It had been six years in the making, and only possible due to inconceivable hard work, and dedication. You see Newton had envisioned 'Newton's Cradle' from an early age, and now it was finished all she could do was smile and breathe it in. The dark beams were polished, the painting was done, The upholstery was actually comfortable, and the bar well the bar looked empty, but that wasnt the point. She had the building and that was half the battle.

A knock came at the door, ''My first Patron!, she said in excited tones, knowing full well it was probably the delivery she had been expecting.

The man outside had six large, wooden crates for her, and she signed for them happily,

''I'll see you again next week'' she said as the man left the last of the crates by the bar. ''Take care!''

She closed the door, and began to unpack the crates. Bottles of every shape, size and colour soon stood proudly on the shelves behind the bar. ''And thats it, I've got the kegs stored downstairs, the food in the freezer and now the spirits behind the bar, glasses we have plenty of.'' She listed carefully as she made visual checks.

''Well then, a toast to me!'' she continued, pouring herself a drink and downing it in one.

Gaudia opened the door to the homey little tavern. She removed her hood and bounced up to the bar. "One beer please! I don't care what kind." She out her elbows on the bar and smiled brilliantly at the bartender.

Tris, you going to sulk out there all day or are you coming in?

Tristia came in, leaving her hood up Just checking the outside of this place, we have a lot of enemies and you would do well to remember that. she too walked up to the bar, "Ale."

Gaudia rolled her eyes at Tris uh, RUDE!

Tristia sighed, "Ale, PLEASE" she said, looking pointedly with an annoyed face at Gaudia.

Both woman were dressed in all black. Gaudia sported large white wings however, while Tristia sported a pair of black ones. Both had their wings folded neatly at their backs. Neither bore any weapons.

Newton almost choked on a second drink as her first patron... no patron's walked in. She suddenly became all flustered before regaining composure

Welcome!
she offered adjusting her clothes and checking her hair.
I'm Newton, this is my establishment, so what can i get you?
she laughed softly before continuing
Ive always wanted to say that!
A beer and an ale coming right up! and manners never hurt a fly, especially around here.
The last part clearly for the hooded fgure. She offered the Dark Ale and a refreshing beer to the two before continuing.
First round is on me, im in a celebratory mood. So what brings you to Newton's tonight?

Gaudia laughed and Tris scowled at Newton's reprimanding voice. told you

Oh shut up!

Gaudia accepted the beer with a gracious nod, "Your generosity is appreciated. We're here on business."

Tris sipped her ale and her eyes widened with surprise at the quality. She turned to Newton, "My apologies for my earlier behavior. As my sister says, we're here on business, actually..." she pulled out her holopad and pulled out a picture of a woman with black hair, green eyes, and fair skin. "Have you seen this woman? She was supposed to meet us nearby several hours ago and has yet to arrive. We fear she may have the meeting place wrong."

Newton smiled at the two young ladies on the otherside of the bartop.

Not at all,
she replied in acknowledgement of her generosity. She listened to the two and studied the picture of the person they were looking for.

I recognise her facebut i can't say where from.
, She looked up as if her memories were stored in the high beams, searching for the face among them.

Yes,I have definately seen her around here, but quite honestly i've been so busy with everything i haven't had a moment to myself, i hope it wasn't too important?


She was still considering the face, it wasn't like her to forget. If she could remember the names of tomes shed stored all those years ago, then she should recognise a face surely.

I must be getting old, she laughed jovially her smile illuminating her face.
So are you two around here long?

Gaudia shook her head, "She's probably lost. She'll find her way here eventually."

Do you think she knows we're after her?

No, she's investing more capital in the Solari system with us. How the hell would she know our real purpose?

But she's rich enough she might have our info...

If she doesn't show in the next week we'll hunt her down.


Tristia finalized the mental conversation that had gone by at the speed of thought and nodded to Newton. "Yes, if she isn't here yet we need to wait for her. Plus, with the quality of your drinks, how could we NOT stay?"

Gaudia nodded vehemently in agreement, somehow not spilling her drink.

Newton laughed softly at the compliment,
Well as guests with such polite manners, we'd better get you another round.
. She offered the most perfect of smiles, and tapped her nose softly at Tristia.

Ahe headed into the freshly built kitchen area, gathered three apples and a wheel of cheese, before returning back to the bar area.
Now you ladies wont mind if we eat whilst we talk? would you? I'm famished.
She gestured over to one of the booths, She would have picked a nicer booth but they were all so nice.

Come, tell me where you are from and what you know of this planet so far?, and i shall share stories and tales that will amaze you. Her presence was soft, a flowing figure that seemed to glide over the floor. Her voice was mid-toned, and calming some might say.

Gaudia and Tristia followed her to the booth. Sitting down they accepted the offering of cheese and apples. Tristia opened the conversation. "We aren't really from anywhere. Well, that's wrong. Technically we're from Terra, but we hardly fit in there. We have some....less than cheerful memories of that place."

Gaudia glanced at Tristia what story are we using?

Hmm...lets stick with one that won't reveal us if the target shows up.

Real estate agents?

Perfect


Gaudia hastily changed the topic. "We don't really live anywhere. We're in the real estate business and find that the best way to get good properties is to roam around, looking for the best properties. We just bought a space station!"

"And sold it" continued Tristia, "We actually found a buyer who wanted a station as his house, so we turned it around put some carpeting and a fresh paint job on it and made quite the profit."

"Though the buyer was rather odd." Gaudia mused, "What was his name again?"

"Oh I don't know. Feett or something. Had a hideous fashion sense. Wanted the whole station painted green before he would buy it."

"Idiot. Dark green doesn't show up in deep space. Whatever. Anyway, that's why we're here. We've never been to Regis before and we have someone saying they have quite the property to sell us here. "

SHe sliced the apple and cheese and dished a portion to each,
oh wow, these apples are perfect.
She said as she crunched into one. Upon hearing the words real estate she became mildly suspicious, not open a day and already they want to put a profit margin on it, she thought to herself.

I'm sorry to disappoint you both, but just to make you aware this place isnt for sale. She was more inclined to say they were just having a drink, but she wanted to be clear.

I mean i've had real estate agents contact me regarding this place already and you two, well you arent exactly the sort im used to.
Anyway, i've heard about Terra, Isn't that the place with the massive City? Whats it called?''

Gaudia laughed, "No worries, we've no intention to buy this place. You do quite a good job of running this place. As for Terra..." she shrugged and took a bite of cheese.

Tristia finished her sentence for her, "We have no clue about Terra. We never really traveled. Our upbringing was rather claustrophobic." She removed her hood to reveal raven-black hair the same color as her wings and took a bite to eat.

Newton looked at her hair and wings and smiled inside herself, the compliments were nice, but the fact she could take her hood off in her inn, was something that truly touched her.
You shouldnt hide your hair you're such a pretty thing.
she continued.
Thats it! Wing City
she remembered, shed heard stories in her time in the Arcanum.

Its supposed to be bigger than this city by ten times as much, and i hear they have days and nights there. here if you go to the west there is darkness and to the east youll find its lighter. This planet doesnt rotate like most, you can thank Benevoence and Azoris for that.
She sounded quite proud of her knowledge although the two could have asked anyone around here and they would have told them the same thing.

Hows the food?
she asked, and whilst relating the information she'd poured another set of drinks for them both, placing them on the table as she returned.

Tristia smiled, "Thank you."

Gaudia looked up, "Wait, what? How does your planet maintain gravita- nevermind, it's just make my head hurt."

Tristia made a mental note of the number of drinks they had been served thus far, "The food is excellent. Do you grow the apples yourself or-?" She left the question hanging in the air.

"The planet is largely obsidian based," she gestured to some of the obsidum based bricks, "its dense, and as well as that we have Benevolence the sun to the west holding us still and Azoris in the east, much further, balancing us in a state of suspension. As for the apples, there is a small Orchard just outside the city, i have a couple of sacks brought here each week." She hoped she hadnt confused them too much with gravitional pulls and stars and black holes but she thought they got the picture.

"One thing you should look out for is these."
she warned as she pulled a lamp off the wall and removed a colour filter causing their booth to turn a greenish colour.

"This is a vape lamp, vape is the main source of fuel here, this is actually a rather expensive one. The cheaper ones dont burn properly and the fumes can cause nausea and delirium. Believe me you don't want to know how its processed. These ones are okay though, because the filter here," she pointed to a part on the top of the lamp before continuing. " ...Is of decent quality, so you are safe. Just a heads up if you are going to be spending time in Regis."

Newton looked up from the table and saw a red haired woman walk into the bar, " Excuse me guys,," she said politely to the two in the booth.

" Welcome to Newton's Cradle!,it's a pleasure to meet you, can i get you anything?, we have rooms available of all price ranges, or perhaps you are hungry?"

Newton was catching herself at being perhaps a little over the top, but she simply couldnt help herself, it's what she had been waiting to do for years. "Well let me at least get you a drink, on the house?" she offered smiling friendily to the woman.

"Whiskey, if you have it, if not, I could go for a beer," Vanessa pulled her coat over her hip holster in an effort to conceal the fact that she had a firearm present on her at all times. A precaution, to be sure, but one she didn't want to parade around. "This is a nice place you have here, ma'am."

Seph looked at the lights shining in the windows, the last time he was here, there was nothing but a building site here, he looked up to see the sign 'Newton's Cradle' " So this is that place?'' He was moderately impressed, the architecture was done to a good standard, it wasn't an eyesore thats for sure. He walked inside.

Upon entering he caught the smell of freshly cut soft wood mixed with the smell of hard liquor, they went together rather pleasantly.

''Would you like ice with that?'' he heard a female voice ask. Female, bar staff, perhaps the owner.

He looked around the room to see two girls sitting in one booth and two other women casually interacting.

"Well in that case, i guess i'll have to have a drink." he sasked of the lady making the drinks, she had brown hair and dark eyes that he thought quite suited the joint.

His heavy boots sounded on the freshly laid floor, in those were tucked a baggy set of excercise trousers He clearly liked to be agile.

His blonde hair framed his blue eyes quite nicely and his teeshirt wasnt baggy enough to hide his broad frame underneath.

"Evening love, he said to the woman rushing around?"

"Ill take a cocktail please if you dont mind, see if this place is as good as they expected." he smiled mischieviously at her before answering her stare.

"Its Seph" he offered quickly assuming her unspoken words.

" Well maybe the Arcanum could help you? its a big place full of knowledgable people, It's where i would go." She paused a moment listening to Vanessa offer her name. " Ahh yes, where are my manners, I'm Newton, and Archon Security, we could do with a few of you around here." she joked half heartedly. It was true .. a whole spacecraft of security is what this planet could use but she doubted anyone would be able to afford such a proffessional.

Newton Watched as the blonde haired figure walked in through the door, she didnt have time to say anything before he started talking. Caught quite off guard by his comments, she recomposed herself to at least make the cocktail he ordered.

" Certainly sir" she took out a glass and proceeded to shake and create a rather beautiful looking cocktail with red and blue layers.

She was quite smug shed known that one for years, it was going to be a speciality on her new menu, and so she was quite content he'd like it.

"If you're serious about that statement, I could make an offer," Vanessa smirked, before she took a sip of her drink. She ignored the new arrival, on the basis that she wasn't going to "engage unless engaged", so to speak. "My company offers a wide variety of services."

"Well well, thats not half bad, Seal of approval from me, but who do i make the seal out to?" he said coyly, clearly trying to get her name.

He looked down the bar to see Vanessa sitting there drinking a whisky, " Ahh a lady of good tastes, although i can't say i recognise the weapon, Private sector are we?'' he said curiously. He knew about weapons, hed been trained in the Obsidian Arena for the majority of his life in most major forms of combat and weaponry, he was far from an expert in all of them but he knew things.

"Whats your business on Regis traveller? I mean no harm just curious is all" " Seph had turned back into his more formal self, of course he had practiced this for days at a time, being as disciplined as he was, and it was good practice for if he decided to join the Planetary Guard.

Vanessa glanced at Seph, before she pulled the pistol out of its retention holster, unloaded the magazine, and ejected the round from the chamber. "Smith and Wesson, forty caliber. And yes, I am private sector," she said before she put a business card before Newton.

Vanessa then handed the empty pistol to Seph. "Take a look, dunno what people 'round these parts use for weapons, but I feel like I might be outmatched regardless."

"Well the Planetary Guard do their best, but they dont meddle in private affairs, Security around the inn would be good, what with the amount of diversity in our culture, Arms and abilities. I'd hate to turn this into a job interview though Vanessa, perhaps you could come by sometime tomorrow? i could put you up for the night in return?"

Newton eyed Seph curiously... smiling softly before saying in a clearly humorous manner, "Hey dumbass, my names on the sign" she winked at him, before disappearing into the kitchen leaving the two of them to converse.

Seph took the weapon and checked it was unloaded, after flipping it around and looking at it from what seemed like every angle he returned his gaze to Vanessa. ''Clearly a 40 calibre but i havent heard of these being used in years. Its an impressive weapon, could cause a serious headache. Well Vanessa seeing as you handed it over of free will, i doubt you had any intentions to use it, i would ask however you leave the safety on, if you decide to reload it." He went to hand it back, but before he let go, he leaned in to get a better look at Vanessa, "ohh look it goes with your eyes." he smiled cheekily before letting go of the weapon.

"So what is private Sector doing here?" he asked whilst thinking, "Of course looking for work. Had much experience?" he asked intrigued.

"Not sure if you're familiar with the goings on of a little rock called Earth, but yeah. My company's been in the game for about a decade now. Since twenty fifty two. Dad started it, I helped when I was of age, now here I am," she reloaded and holstered the weapon. "High value target defense, asset recovery, counter terror operations. Everything from exoskeletons to cybernetics, all the way up to non nuclear high damage destructive devices. Trust me, we know what we're doing. A gig like this little inn would be nothing. Don't wanna drain the woman of her funds, that's not the game I play. Not like other corps."

"Thats admirable, and quite a resume you hold, only thing i don't approve of is you stealing young mens hearts," He clearly didnt mean anything by it, it just brought him joy to tease her. "Well if you are going to be working here, then i may have to visit more regularly," he continued beginning to get the feeling that this place could be a big asset to Regis's economy.

He sipped his drink and decided to sit down in one of the booths, unintentionally choosing a booth he could overhear the two girls in.

" So are you going to join me or do i have to buy you a drink first?" he said it with such grace and such ease, that one may be forgiven for thinking it wasnt flirting. but it was, and why not? she looked good in uniform.
