Yah'akov Kohen's Story

The door to the bar creaked open. What would enter into the infamous tavern tonight? A bloodthirsty warlord, a psychotic lich, a zealous suicide bomber, or maybe a lone ranger in search of ale and wenches? Quite tapping echoed from beyond the doorway until a long and thin white object poked around the door.

A... cane?

From the doorway emerged a man of relatively average build and height. He was clad in a simple pair of blue-jeans, a red t-shirt, and a leather jacket. His white tennis-shoes squeaked lightly as he stepped into the room. Four sets of blue and white threaded tassels dangled from his belt loops. The man gripped a long white cane in his left hand and slowly passed it in front of his feet like a radar.

He stopped for a moment and took a long breath. Jacob's nose wrinkled at the cocktail of cooked meet, beer, and perspiration, but a content smile spread across his face when the music reached his ears. The drummer's rhythm echoed through his body, and he matched it with his fingers.

After a few moments, Jacob let out a sigh and cleared his throat. He was about to speak when the abrupt change in the music caught his attention. The musician recognized the song, though he could feel a looming darkness behind the music. It made him uneasy.

"Ahem." he cleared his throat. "Excuse me, but would anyone be so kind as to help me find a table?" he said while bringing his cane to a position parallel with his body. The dark shades adorning his shades reflected the candlelight of the room.

Jacob let out a sigh. "Fair enough..." he said quietly. The blind man stretched out his cane and walked to the right in search of the nearest wall. After a moment the cane hit the surface with a clack. He smiled to himself as he placed his right hand against the wall and began to slide along the edge of the room. Eventually he would encounter a booth and gingerly sit himself on the leather pew.

Jacob slid his left hand onto the table and felt for the electronic menu. Upon discovering it, he operated the device through the verbal interface. His nose wrinkled slightly as the smell of sulfur and death assaulted his nostrils.

"Just come from the coroner, man?" he directed to where he believed the smell to come from - Maelik.

"I apologize for being rude, but you smell like you've just came from a cremation." he said before sending off an order for a cheeseburger, fries, and a coke. Suddenly the woman bumped into him, knocking his shades halfway down his face. "Oof! Uhh, hello there." The man's eyes were a dark brown that were wrapped in a layer of gray fog.

Jacob adjusted his shades into the proper location on his face so it covered his eyes. He looked up in the direction of Maelik. It was more of a courtesy. The man gave a chuckle and assumed that the being was only joking.

He perked up as the mechanical sounds of a server droid approached. Jacob smiled at the clattering of his plate. The blind man reached out his hands and gently tapped the food with his fingers. His fingers slid over the smooth yet slightly damp wheat buns before tracing over the rough potato- Ouch!

Jacob yanked back his hand and shook it violently. "Damn! Still hot..."

"Depends on your taste I suppose..." he said before gently searching for his coke. His fingers wrapped around the glass and he slowly brought it to his lips. Jacob sipped the crackling liquid. The cold container soothed the burning sensation that still lingered on his finger. Upon hearing the peculiar sounds emanating from the area of his acquaintance, he chose to remain silent - though he pondered what it could be. The guy seemed pretty interesting to hang around with.

Oh if he only knew...

Jacob put down his coke and popped a cooled yet steaming fry into his mouth. "Oh! Oh! Stall haw'!" he blew out gasps of air before swallowing the chopped up deep fried potato chunks. The blind man sniffed the air and wrinkled his nose. "Something burning?"

"Interesting name... Most people call me Jacob or Jake, but my real name is Yah'akov. Yah'akov Kohen." he said before taking a bite out of his burger. The warm grease filled his mouth and the crunching of lettuce soothed his ears. A moment later he swallowed the portion of bread, ground beef, lettuce, and ketchup. "So, do you know if this place is looking for anyone to play live music?"

Jacob glanced over where Rory spoke. It was out of instinct of course, since the man couldn't see him. He chuckled slightly. "Hey, maybe you're the weird one? Everything seems pretty fine to my, though what do I know? I'm blind!" he smirked at the humor before turning his attention to Maelik. "Do you know how I can contact the owner? My band and I have been looking for a regular place to do gigs."

Jacob set down his empty glass and let out a belch as he finished his meal. "That's a shame... You seem to be a pretty decent guy. Well I would love to stay and chat, but my older brother doesn't like me being out by myself for long - with the handicap and all." he chuckled before scooting out of his booth. "Unfortunately by the sound of things I don't think there's any staff on duty at the moment, so I think I'll just come back alter. See ya." the man said as he walked towards where he remembered the door to be. His cane was outstretched a few feet in front of him as it scanned the floor for obstacles.

He stopped for a moment and took a long breath. Jacob's nose wrinkled at the cocktail of cooked meet, beer, and perspiration. His fingers tapped a steady swing rhythm on the handle of his cane.

The man glanced back towards the door at the sound of thunder before perking up when Zekil spoke, though his gaze wasn't aimed directly at the tender. "I'm gonna assume you were speaking to me. A Dr Pepper would be fine, and would you mind helping me find a table? I would do it myself, but... y'know..." he smiled while waving the cane for effect.

Jacob looked over to where the new voice came from. He felt his cane - his life line to the world - hit a new surface. "Thank you, sir." he nodded while gingerly sliding into the chair. His hand skimmed over the table until he felt the cold glass of the soda. The blind man gently wrapped his fingers around it and brought it to his lips.

"Actually, I was wondering if you guys were looking for any bands to play live music. My band and I have been looking for a place to do regular gigs."

"Oh! My apologies!" he smiled before slowly reaching his right hand across the table. He didn't want to accidentally sucker punch the guy. "Nice to meet you, Chet and Zekil. Ask away. Oh, and Zekil. Could you ask your employer about my proposal?"

Jacob chuckled a bit. "Despite my blindness, I try to make due. I have never asked to be treated different or special because of my quote... 'disability'." he made quotation marks with his fingers. "However... I believe in a higher authority, Chet - an authority that has a plan for me and a reason for my blindness. Thank you for the offer though."

Jacob smirked softly. "Even the blackest soul has a glimmer of light... When Nineveh repented, they were shown mercy and forgiveness." the blind man said. "Why should we fear this malicious presence that comes into this place? For it only has authority if we give it to them. I for one will not empower them with misplaced fear. My trust belongs to Yeshua."

After a few moments, Jacob let out a sigh and cleared his throat. "Ahem. Excuse me, but would anyone be so kind as to help me find a table?" he said while straightening his cane. The dark shades adorning his eyes glistened in the dull candlelight. He stood there patiently with a charming smile on his face. Would anyone help the blind man?

Jacob smiled as he heard a friendly voice. He looked in Sonja's general direction and nodded. "Yes, I would gladly join you. Would you mind leading the way. I would do it myself, but my vision isn't quite as good as it used to be." the man smirked, completely comfortable with his disability.

"Hmm... I've personally haven't had any trouble here." he replied. "Had a couple decent conversations and a good gig. The rest of the guys and I sometimes put on shows here on weekends. So far the nights I have spent here have been peaceful. Maybe it's just the good Lord looking after me." Jacob smiled.

"Likely within the next week..." he said. "Hard to say. Depends on our schedule." the blind man then turned at the sound of the officers and gave them a friendly nod. When his drink came, Jacob slowly glided his hand across the table until his fingers wrapped around the cold glass. He brought it to his mouth and sipped at the dark carbonated liquid.
