Description

ImageName: Atlas Hensley

Age: 26 years old.

Race: Human.

Gender: Male

Sexual orientation: Atlas does not prefer one gender over the other.

Occupation: Owner and pastry chef/master barista of Cloud Top Cafe and Bakery.

Family: None on Veritas Island. Parents are long deceased. Has a sister named Marguerite who lives very far away.

Appearance: Atlas is a tall and slender man. He stands at 6ft 3 inches tall. Atlas has short, wavy, chocolate brown hair that just barely curls at the end, and always looks a tad bit messy. He has narrow and charming deep amber colored eyes and pale skin. His slender build leads others to believe that he isnt very strong, but he is actually quite toned due to lifting heavy trays full of baked goods. Atlas wears a long sleeved, white shirt underneath a collared red vest. He also wears a large gold and red amulet that was passed down to him by his father. He also wears a black apron when he is at work.

Personality: Atlas is an easygoing young man, he manages to stay calm and collected during times of stress. He does not dwell on the past, as he prefers to live in the moment. Atlas is very focused and swift when he is at work, as he takes his job very seriously. Besides baking, Atlas also loves to read, and can often bee seen wandering about town, his nose buried in a new book.

History: Atlas grew up far away from Veritas in a small farming town. He had a normal life as the son of two farmers, but always wanted bigger better things, though he never found a good enough reason to break away from the small town life he had grown tired of. Atlas worked on his families farm and at the local bakery where he gained a love for baking and candy making, until he was twenty three years old. His parents had died and his sister married and moved away, and so Atlas sold the farm and set out to find a new, exciting place to set up his own cafe. He found it on Veritas Isle. He opened up shop, and business has been booming ever since. Recently Atlas was able to employ a store manager, and now only works in-store every other day. Now he seeks to gain friendship and build a more solid life for himself to settle into, maybe find a partner and have a few little ones, should he be so lucky.

Elwin looked him over. "Handsome and protective. I like that." He teased before his mother answered the door. They walked in and took a seat.

"You spoil us too much! Thank you, thank you. We really do love your baking. As for us," She had started working on making tea, "We have been working like crazy. Some of us so much we got sick." Elwin looked up, "Is it Lorelei? I am sure that me and Roshia can pick up some of her load. She doesn't need to be straining herself."

His mother waved a dismissive hand as she set the kettle on the stove and sat down, "Oh no, your father and I made sure she didn't have a load on her. It is Roshia, seems she has come down with a small flu of some sorts." Just then the door opened and Roshia walked in. She froze for a moment, "Ahh, I didn't mean to break up the conversation. I just need to speak with mom real quick."

Elwin got up and walked up to her, "I hope you feel better. If you need anything just ask." She looked at him weird. "Uhm, thanks." She said before going into her father's office.

Her mother got up, "Excuse me boys, we will be just a minute." She followed her daughter into the room and closed the door.

"Mother, I need you to keep me being pregnant a secret, but it seems you are already covering for me. Thanks." She whispered.

"Of course, dear. I wouldn't want to start anything with anyone. It is your business. May I ask who the father is?" She smiled, holding her daughter's hands.

"His name is Rowan Todd." She whispered. Her mother's eyes grew wide. In all honestly she didn't know if it was his or not, but it was the story she was sticking to. "I needed to cool off from what happened and I went to the tavern by the lake. He was there and... well yeah. He is a sweet man, mother. We... uhm we are getting married the day after the festival it will be by the lake. We want everyone to think we got pregnant after and that the baby came a few weeks early." She was in tears again and her mother held her.

"There there, child. I will tell your father and the rest of the family about the wedding and keep quiet about the pregnancy. I am so happy for you, my sweet Roshia." She laughed softly through her tears before fixing her face and drying it.

"Let me give you back to the boys, okay." Her mother nodded and they walked out. She stopped by the door and looked back, "Elwin, if you are staying the night here can you stop by my house please? I would like to talk to you."

Elwin's face lit up, "Of course." She nodded to the rest of the group before heading out to her house.

Atlas sat quietly and listened as Elwins mother spoke. He looked towards the door and offered a small wave to Roshia when she walked in. He and Elwin exchanged looks when she rushed to speak to her mother, though Atlas didnt feel like prying into the matter, as it was none of his business. He made a small game of tickling Elwin when he let his gaurd down, while they waited for Roshia and Penelo to return. He stopped when Roshia walked back into the room. Tickling Elwins side once more after Roshia had left, then looked away as if he was innocent.

Elwin giggled, trying not to be to loud, "Stop you, you going to make me choke on my delicious coffee." He laughed playfully swatting at his hand, but he was worried about Roshia. She did indeed look sick, but there was something more to it. He could feel something in their twin bond, thought it was faint. She was hiding something. When she came out and asked that he come to her house to talk he was excited. He hadn't been over since he left her the cake. She never talked about it or thanked him. It hurt, but he expected it.

"Sorry about that, where were we? Hmm, what are you two doing for the festivals?"

Atlas laughed and tickled Elwin one more time before his mother, Penelo, spoke. "We'll I took the day off so I can got to the Festival with Elwin, but i'm not too sure about what we'll be doing since I normally work at the festivals main square and I havent really gotten to see what else it there since the booth gets flooded so much...So it will kind of be up to Elwin to show me what they have. But personally...Im excited about the games" Atlas said as he sipped his own coffee. "As far as after the fireworks im not sure whats gonna happen since im gonna have to check on the Cafes booth and help shut it down" He said next

Elwin held his hand, laughing "Now you are in trouble, I am going to have to hold your hand, tis tis.." He looked towards his mother as she spoke then to Elwin. He nodded in agreement.

"Ah yes, the festival is a good thing to experience from outside the booth. I remember long ago when we ran a booth, we were lucky to have a good one where the fireworks were near, but after my first set of twins were born I out my foot down. I wanted to spend the time with my family. So my husband took on the booth and hired helping hands." She laughed, "Oh! I almost forgot. Roshia is getting married the after the festival. Maybe that is why she wanted to talk to you after Atlas has left."

"Wait, what? When did this happen and to who?!" Elwin was confused, he knew for a fact it wasn't their brother because Nasir told him that she wanted to break it off and that he was talking to Ofelia, but he didn't know who she was seeing. His mother smiled brightly, "Rowan Todd, the mayor's son."

"Well hot damn, I wonder how she snagged him... and so quickly. Oh I can't wait, though I don't know if I could make a wedding dress that fast. Unless we ransack Ameria's closet. Girl knows she has more wedding like dresses than one woman should have." He laughed. His mother gave him an, excuse-me look before smiling and fixing herself some tea.

Atlas' eyes got big when there was talk of Roshia getting married. And to the mayors son at least. "And I had been hearing that he turns down women left and right, Its all the women our age talk about. He's a nice man, comes in the cafe for business as well as for coffee. They seem like theyd go well together. Thats an awful short time frame to plan a wedding though, took months to plan my sisters, I hope they can get everything arranged in time." Atlas said. "Oh! Let your sister know she wont need to worry about a cake, I'll take care of that for her as a wedding gift." Atlas said. Just let me know tomorrow what kind of flavors she would like. I guess I should be going now, I'm sure Roshia is waiting to talk to you. I'll show up with breakfast tomorrow so be ready" Atlas said. He kissed Elwins cheek and said goodbye to Penelo before exiting the house and heading back to the Cafe to check on things there.

Elwin nodded,"Thank you so much, that means a lot." He blushed when Atlas kissed his cheek, especially in front of his mother. They walked to the door where he watched him until he couldn't see Atlas anymore, than he turned back to his mother who was smiling ear to ear.

"You two love birds." She cooed.

"Mother, stop" He blushed, but he loved the fact that she accepted him. She laughed and nodded. He gave his mom a hug before heading out and walking over to Roshia's. He was nervous, but he knocked gently, "It is me, Elwin." He felt stupid saying his name like she would forget him.

Roshia answered and let him in. "Congratulations on the marriage. You seemed to hook the unhookable." He joked. She smiled softly, but didn't laugh. Roshia would have laughed if it was before everything had went down. He cleared his throat, "So what is it you wanted to talk about? I am all ears."

Roshia sat down in her chair and motioned for him to sit across from her and he obeyed. "Look I know... we haven't been close in the last three or so weeks. I am... I am not as angry as I was before. I am just more hurt than anything. I felt betrayed, but now that I have a clear mind about it... you were also just trying to help." She didn't look at him when she spoke. He could tell she was trying not to cry. "You are my twin and my other half, so I am trusting you with this... but break it and I will never speak to you again." This time she looked him straight in the eye.

"I understand completely. I am sorry for before, I just didn't know how to go about it." He said softly. She smiled again.

"Good, because what I am about to say is very very hard. I am pregnant, El." She went back to not looking at him. She stared at her hands the whole time. He was in complete shock. "And it is for...Nasir?" Roshia bit her bottom lip.

"I... I don't know who it is for." She whispered, crying now. Elwin got up and drew her into a hug. She didn't pull away, but sank into him.

"You... slept with Rowan too?" She shook her head yes. "Hot damn, lucky you." She sat up and gently punched his arm.

"Jerk. We met at the tavern by the lake. It is such a funny man, but we got drunk a few nights after... and the next thing I know I am in his bed. It was so awkward for a bit after. El, he doesn't even know if it is his and he proposed marriage." She looked up at him broken. He wiped her tears away, "He is a good ass man. I should stamp him with my approval."

"Please don't touch his butt, I don't think Atlas would approve." She laughed. "Atlas looks like a good guy, seems like one too. I could hear you giggling in the other room at our parent's house." He blushed.

"He is amazing. So sweet... and devilishly hot. Oh gosh and his lips are so soft." He swooned and she listened. It was like old times. "By the way, he wants to do your cake as your wedding gift. What do you want your flavors to be?"

She held her hand over her mouth before speaking, "Ugh, food. Hmm I really loved that cake you made. I would love that again."

Elwin smiled and sat up, pulling her up gently. "As you wish, now let's go raid Ameria's closet and I can hem it for you. She can go without one dress." Roshia held hands with her brother, like old times, as he lead the way into Ameria's house. They finally decided on a white floral dress. They talked a little more before they said their goodnights and headed off to each other's houses.

The setting changes from keavaris-village to Veritas City.

Atlas got up early in the morning as usual and went down to the bakery and grabbed breakfast for himself and Elwin, but just as he was leaving his store manager said that they were behind on decorating the cookies for the booth at the festival. So Atlas delivered Elwin his breakfast and explained that he had no choice but to go into work for a little while and to come to the cafe at lunch time to visit and he should be done by that time.

By the time lunch rolled around, Atlas was indeed done decorating the cookies and had time to sit and read in th cafe for a while before Elwin was due to show up. He had been sitting for a while when a young woman walked up to him and asked if he owned the place. Atlas thought it must have been the apron he was wearing that gave it away. "Yes, I do, Did you need something?" He asked the woman standing in front of him.

Elwin had breakfast with Atlas and waited till it was time to leave for to meet him for lunch. He was a bit sad that it had to be rushed, but he shrugged it off and went anyway. He walked to the festival by himself by the time he got there Elwin decided to stop by his family booth and see if his father needed help, but he didn't so he decided to walk around a bit.

If he was going to come alone he might as well do somethings alone as well before he went in. He stopped by a fabric booth and bought some rare fabrics and threads, by the time he was done it was a good half hour past lunch. He took his time going to his family booth and setting the his stuff in their family cart before going to the cafe.

Akayia rested against her staff as the man confirmed that he was the owner. She noticed too that the man seemed quite busy. "You look busy good sir but I was hoping to get something to eat for myself and my friend outside" she said with a glace to the door. She hoped Sylvia would be ok on her own.

Meanwhile outside Sylvia epped and hid behind a box when the woman spoke to her.
" I'm...um...not allowed.... waiting....for human friend...inside" she explained nervously.

Atlas listened to the woman as she spoke, he was supposed to be done for the day but figured he could take one more order before Elwin arrived. "What can I get for you? We have tea's, coffees, milk, and toomany desserts and treats to list. Theyre all displayed in that case just over there though. " He said as he got up and pointed to the display case. He then walked behind the counter and giving her a moment to look at the case. "So? What can I get for ya?" He asked again

Roshia smiled softly, she didn't mean to add the stress of a marriage on top of what he was already feeling. She carefully took it out of the box and placed the ring on her finger. It fit perfectly. "You have been doing a lot. Atlas said he would do the cake and he knows what the flavoring is already, if that helps any. I got my dress, Elwin was working on it last night." She was feeling uncomfortable. Roshia felt like she was adding pressure on him, even if he said he just needed his fix. "I can talk to Atlas and look for someone to wed us. So that way you don't have to worry about it okay?" She patted his hand and got up headed over towards Atlas.

"Green tea and um...." Akayia started as she looked over the items " I am new to this area perhaps you have a specialty around here I should try?"

Akayia paused and looked to the door "As for my friend...well she is a fairy so I need something she can handle if you have such?"

Akayia hoped he wouldn't refuse to feed her fairy friend as she had promised to get her something.

"Alright so a green tea then." Atlas said as he started preparing the drink. "As for specialties, a lot of people come here to try the chocolate cream horns. So its worth a try. And for your fairy friend, well im afraid we dont have anything that tiny, but we do have mini lemon scones that I'm sure you could break into pieces for your little friend." Atlas said with a smile. He finished up her drink and set it on the counter for her. "So did you decide on treats yet?" He asked.

"Hmm that sounds perfect!" Akayia said with a smile.

Akayia wanted to ask a few more questions but she noticed another coming up so she just asked, " How much do I owe you sir?"
Akayia leaned her staff against the counter as she pulled out her money bag the clinging of coins heard as she opened the bag.

Elwin had finally got to the cafe when he say a fairy flying about. He tilted his head before smiling and walking in. He say his sister waiting to talk to Atlas but he was talking to some other girl. He looked to the side and saw Rowan, the guy his sister was marrying tomorrow and possibly pregnant for. He gave approval all over again when he say the snowman. He was very pale in contrast to Atlas. Walking up to Rowan he sat down where Roshia was sitting. "So you are the lucky guy who snagged the girl who said she would never marry, lucky you. I am Elwin, Roshia's twin." He said holding out his hand and shaking it. He leaned in and whispered, "I know about the whole situation and wanted to thank you for doing what you did. She was in a real pickle and you literally saved her." He sat back and laughed.

Atlas was putting the cream horn and the scone for the young woman in a bag when he saw Roshia come up behind her, then a few seconds later Elwin walked through the door. "Ah, don't worry about it. Think of it as a welcoming gift, just come back again some time" He said as he handed her the bag of treats. "I gotta go, but it was nice meeting you, hope you have a wonderful time in the city!" He said before he darted away from the counter, with coffee in hand for Elwin. He stopped first to talk to Roshia though, as she had been waiting. "Good afternoon, Roshia, Congratulations on the wedding. Was there something i can do for you?" He asked with a smile.

Roshia smiled sympathetically. "I know you were gracious enough to do the wedding cake, but Rowan was wondering if you could also cater? Also, do you know someone who could wed us? I know you have done some weddings, right? I am so sorry for bugging you." She spoke nervously.

"Yeah I can cater too, thats not an issue. And I have catered a few weddings but the only person i know as far as ordained ministers is the one at the church, and I dont know him personally, but i think the church does some kind of special summer prayer gathering tomorrow. But again, I'm not sure, I dont really go to church. I think your best bet would be to find a traveling priest or priestess....Oh, the woman who was just at the counter seemed to be wearing what look like the robes monks wear! Maybe shes a priestess? Couldnt hurt to ask. But, dont worry I will take care of the catering and the Cake, and tell Rowan everything is set up for the festival, I know he came to ask." Atlas said next.

Roshia thanked him and turned, hurrying over to the girl before she left the cafe. "Hi! I am Roshia and I was wondering if you happen to be a priest? If not I am so sorry, but if you are could you do me the biggest favor? I am getting married tomorrow and am desperately looking for someone to wed us. I will pay whatever you charge! ." She begged.

Elwin smiled, he was indeed a good guy. He watched as his sister ran towards the girl behind Atlas, "The only one I know is the one at the church, but he does this prayer thing for the summer tomorrow, but it looks like Roshia might have that figured out." He chuckled, watching his sister beg a random stranger, before glancing at Atlas and then going back to looking at his sister.

"Ahhhhh well thats a relief then...Weddings all planned, festival stuff is nearly over with too. " Rowan gave a happy sigh as he watched Elwin glance at Atlas and then at his sister. "Did you need to talk to him? I apologize if I was holding you up at all, you better catch him while he's still here, he said he had plans to go to the festival with someone yesterday, told me to come here before lunch to catch him before he left." Rowan said as he put his notebook back in his pocket.

Akayia barely had time to say "Thank you sir!" Before the owner had ran off.
Akayia just shrugged taking her bag of eats and staff and started for the door. She was about to the door when the lady that was behind her in line came up and spoke to her.
It took Akayia a few seconds to register what all the young woman was asking. "I um well not really a priestess per say... I am Akayia a monk from the Temple of the Four Winds. I have seen others of my order wed people...and I can though I have never done one....In all truth I am barely out of my training. Does your town not have a clergy of it's own more qualified?"

Roshia frowned. "No, our only one is booked for some prayer thing. Sorry to have bothered you." She said quietly before returning to Rowan and saw Elwin. "Oh, hey. Stop trying to steal my man, you have your own." She teased, forcing a smile on. She was officially stressed. Elwin laughed, "I promise I am not, are you okay?" She said nothing, but smiled.

"Hey wait!" Akayia called to Roshia as she rushed to catch up to her. "I didn't say I wouldn't do it. If you need my services I'm happy to help...we will just need to discuss the details and go over any personal vows and all before the wedding."
There was a bit of nervousness in her voice but she kept a straight face. "Oh and don't worry about pay my only request is that the wedding can be done somewhere my fairy friend Sylvia can be as well."
