What'll it be for you today?

0 · 1,957 views · located in Papoa Lake

a character in “Veritas Isle”, as played by Rari

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 just stood there, you could cut the tension with the knife. Oh gosh, why did she have to come back? Right now, especially." He could tell by the way they looked at each other that it wouldn't be good to have them in the same room for a long time. Atlas was one thing, even with his scary face, but Ameria had... ways of hurting people. "Mm, yeah I am glad I made it when I did." She turned her attention back to Elwin. "Elwin, a word outside please." He nodded, excusing himself from Atlas and walked outside with her. "I know you aren't fond of my advice, but be careful with him. I didn't just come back for Roshia's wedding. I know you like him," She smiled, taking his braid apart and fixing it for him, "but darkness has a way of making you think it is the light. And I rather not have another brother go crazy." She smiled. After finishing his hair she walked off with a wave. He bit his lip before walking back in, keeping his eyes to the ground.

Atlas knew nothing good would come of Elwin having a private chat with his sister. So while the talked he took the cover off the cake and checked it over one more time before picking up his different containers an wraps that he had brought to move everything and set them in a box neatly. When Elwin came back in Atlas picked up the box and held it. "Well everything is here and accounted for so...I guess i'll go home...?"He said kind of asking if he should stay.

Elwin looked up and saw Atlas with the box that had everything in it. He looked ready to leave and even suggested he should. He stared at Atlas for a moment, letting what his sister said run through his head. "but darkness has a way of making you think it is the light. He casted the advice aside and nodded, "If you need to I won't hold you up." He smiled and held the door open for him.

Atlas stared out the open door, wondering if Elwin was testing him or not. He didnt really want to leave but Elwin hadnt really said but a few words to him since their conversation about Atlas' dating past. Atlas took a few steps forward and closed the door. He put the box down by the table and just sat down stubbornly with a sigh. "Youre not getting rid of me that easy." He pouted.

Elwin watched as he walked by him and closed the door before sitting down and sighing. He stared at the food, not really knowing what to say. "You were the one saying you were going to go, maybe you had something to do. Like... I don't know... put on better close for the wedding." He said before pressing his lips together in a smile, trying not to laugh.

"Nah im just gonna show up naked. Make quite the fashion statement." Atlas said staring at the ceiling. "I brought a change of clothes, didnt want to accidentally get the wedding attire dirty" He said. He got up and disappeared into the bathroom to change into a suit and a tie, eventually coming back out once he managed to get his hair to look slightly less messy. "Better...?"

Elwin felt bad, but then Atlas got up and he had snapped out of it. He had went into another room. Elwin started to follow until he realized he was changing. He turned and walked away. He took a small piece of something off a plate and nibbled it.
It was a bit before he heard the footsteps behind him. "Better...?" Elwin took his time looking Atlas up and down. At that moment he didn't care if Atlas would end up hurting him, he wanted to enjoy what he had at the moment. "I have one hell of a butler." He smirked.

Atlas turned red and turned around. "Well geeeeze you dont gotta stare you know..." He said puffing his cheeks out like an embarrassed child. "First you try to peep and now youre ogling at me, you fiend!" He joked, knowing that Elwin didnt realize he was walking off to change. "I'll have to wear this around you more often I guess." He teased and walked up to Elwin whispering in his ear. "I'll even play the part if you like it that much~" He teased, his lips just barely grazing Elwins ear. Atlas then walked back to the box, tucking his every day clothing into it neatly, as if he hadnt said anything.

Elwin chuckled at Atlas little pretend tantrum, but blushed at the mention of him peeping at him. It was an accident, but he looked up at Atlas walking towards him, even the way he walked in the suit made him weak. The kill shot was when he whispered in his ear. He wanted to melt and then he walked away like nothing happened. He blushed head to toe. Elwin knew why he was so confidant, he had a good few to practice on. Was this what he like about dating virgin boys. What would happen if he wasn't oh so new to the dating thing? Will his sister's words be truth. The doubt stated to show up again, "Who was your heart break?" He asked quietly, his back to Atlas.

Atlas was having fun until Elwin asked him a strange question. "Well thats a funny question to ask on the day of a wedding...But I guess I can answer it.." He said turning to Elwin. "Her name was Aleah, and she was a lovely woman... I had planned on marrying her...But..She..." As Atlas spoke his tone became uneasy, he turned back, not wanting to finish the sentence. He didnt want to re-live that part of his life again.

Elwin knew nothing of Atlas except for what he saw with his own eyes and his sister. He didn't even know he liked women, which wasn't a problem, just that he didn't know. In the three weeks they were together, he literally learned nothing, except how to bake. Elwin composed himself and turned, walking to the door. "Could you stay here for a moment, I just realized I forgot to make some final stitches to the dress. Can you protect the food, mostly from Agis... just like... throw him in a chair. He should be good then." He jogged out of the house and towards his own.

She waited till Elwin ran out to make a move. She walked in, obviously owning the place. "I know you talked to Roshia... and I am sure she made a threat about hurting you physically if you hurt our brother." She said with a smile. Ameria picked a one of the foods and dropped it back on the plate, clearly disgusted with it. She dusted her hands of it and stared at him. I could see why he would fall so easily for him, handsome guy. "But I will do far more worse... maybe I can bring that little girl you so loved back. Right now, Elwin is doubting things... doubting you. He is confused... he thinks you are just using him for his virginity." She walked to him, standing inches away. "End it, before you make him feel worse about himself. You really don't want to cross me." Her once elegant face turned dark, but she could hear her mother's voice. Her face went back to a smile. "Hope to not see you at the wedding."

Atlas just rolled rolled his eyes when Ameria waltzed back in. He couldnt help but chuckle at her threat to bring Aleah back. "You can threaten me all you want, you can cause me physical pain if you want, but i'm afraid I'm not going anywhere unless Elwin tells me himself that he doesnt want me around. I have no intentions of hurting Elwin, and I never will. But if you feel so strongly about it, go ahead, bring Aleah back. I'd be careful though, people dont take too well to grave robbing." Atlas heard Penelo's voice and he put on a smile "See you at the wedding...Sis." He said, as Penelo came into earshot of the two.

She glared at him, but smiled when her mother popped in. "Atlas, did I just hear you call her your sister? Are you going to propose to Elwin?! And my daughter is back. Today is just so happy." Ameria giggled and gave her mother a hug. "Yes mother, I am back. Just for a short period, unfortunately. A little birdy told me someone was going to be getting married and I couldn't miss that, not for some silly plant. And then there pest that has made its way into town and I fear it may harm someone I love dearly. So best get to it and stomp that out real quick.."

"But you are hear and we can catch up. Oh a pest problem? They are just horrible. Your father, Roshia, Nasir, and Bel had to fight them things recently. Hope you get done with that soon so it doesn't hurt anyone." She patted her hand, smiling at the both of them.

"Oh no not today, but maybe in the near future. But shh dont tell him okay." Atlas smiled at Penelo. "Well i'll let you two catch up then, I should see If Elwin needs any help with anything." Atlas said before he excused himeself. He walked over to Elwins house, now in a slightly irritated mood. He knocked on the door and waited for an answer before opening it and staring at the ground in case anyone was busy getting dressed.

Elwin was checking the dress to make sure it was perfect and also to kill time before he had to see Atlas. He really liked him, but he barely knew him and that is what caused him to panic. The closer he got to Atlas now the more he wanted to run away. Something in him stirred and he didn't like it. A knock on the door brought him out of his thought process. He stood to answer it when Atlas walked in. A small frown displayed on his lips before saying, "Did you lose the battle to protect the food from Agis?" He asked sort of teasingly, turning back to the dress.

"Nah, didnt even see him. I would have rather fought with him though." Atlas sat on the ground and sighed. He sat silent for a good while. Eventually his thoughts got the best of him. "You dont think im with you just because youve not been with any one before right...? Youre not some fresh new toy to play with, Ive never thought about it that way anyways. I dont want you getting any wrong ideas about my intentions. I dont stick around just to toy with you, I would hope you wouldnt think I could be that cruel." He said when he finally spoke. He was going to make himself clear so there was no reason for doubt, and there wouldnt be any openings for anyone to put thoughts in Elwins head. He didnt look directly at Elwin, but instead stared at the dress.

Elwin wasn't expecting him to ask these questions and didn't know how he knew he was worried about those things He sat in silence. He didn't know what to say. He pretty much thought all of that and more. Instead of answering him, Elwin searched the dress like it has some magical answer. Like it knew what the future held. His heart was racing, if he said yes... that mean he thought he was cruel and much worse, but if he lied... where would that lead him?

Atlas sat in silence for a while. he thought about leaving but knew it would make things worse if he did just up and leave. "Im not going to be mad if you say yes...I probably did or said something to make you think that way, i'm not going to fault you for it. I just need to know whats going through your head so I can try to clear up some of your doubts. Im not going to hide anything from you, if you have questions just ask them..." He said quietly, still staring at the dress.

Elwin bit the inside of his lip, "Fine, I did think that. All of it and more." He busied his hands so Atlas couldn't see them shaking. "You have been with countless people, which isn't bad, but it does make you wonder. Why so many? Why me? The guy who clearly hasn't dated anyone before." He turned to Atlas, "I know little to nothing about you. I have no idea who I am getting close to and I refuse to take a step closer to someone who could tear me utterly apart. If I have a chance to run from that destruction then I won't miss it." His voice was shaking, he wasn't angry though it sounded like it, he was scared.

Atlas sat for a moment. "Well lets get to know me then...My full name is Atlas Joseph Hensley, I grew up in a tiny farm village with my parents and sister. I dated a lot of women when I was younger to convince myself I didnt like men too. Didnt work obviously. Ive dated a lot of people, though ive only ever slept with one. I fell in love when i was twenty two with a woman named Aleah. We had plans to be married, but she fell ill and passed away suddenly, three weeks before the wedding. I left my home and traveled for a while afterwards, eventually settling here and opening up my cafe two years ago. I dont sleep well, i consume way more caffiene than any normal human being ever should, and I got a cat because I'm afraid of being alone in my apartment at night and I cant sleep alone. I despise making the same boring cakes all the time, I have the attention span of a gold fish, and I never wear matching socks because i can never find them in pairs. I dont like getting attached to people because i know they can disappear in an instant...But that didnt stop me from from falling head over heals for the man that stands in front of me." Atlas sighed. "That pretty much covers most of it. You'll have to ask if you have any more specific questions" He said his eyes trailing back down to the floor.

Elwin stopped messing with the dress and stayed quiet for a long time. That was a lot of information to take in at once,plus he felt like shit for making Atlas talk about someone he loved who died... before their wedding. He took a deep breath."We might as well and make this fair. My full name is Elwin James Keavaris. I have lived here all my life. I was picked on countless times and had to be rescued countless times by Roshia. I have been for like guy and I hate to admit sometimes I wish I didn't. I never dated because I never wanted to fully admit that I like men and only men. My own father didn't accept me first. This house was hand built by Roshia. So that we could move in together. She stood up to him, toe to toe, and called him a worthless father to ever deny his kid happiness. First time I have seen my father hit anyone." His voice was beginning to shake. "Also my first time ever seeing Roshia get in a fist fight with my warrior father and win. I think he was most proud of her at that moment. The next day my father took me to the city to get to know me. I learned how to sew from my mother when I was five. I hadn't actually started making clothes till I was sixteen, after my father and sister had a falling out. Because of me liking men Roshia really only ever saw the ugly in people and she turned away from being with anyone, though she denies that I had any play in it. Now this... this you have to keep secret... That night you stayed over at my place, when I came home with that busted lip, I caught her and Nasir in bed together. Sounds nasty, but it did. And like my father I only saw disgust. I didn't try and understand the situation and I had her go through everything she had gone through with me alone. She was confused and hurt, and I did nothing to help her. As for the wedding, she met Rowan the night of our fight and a few days later they slept together, but Roshia is pregnant and she doesn't know who the father is. Rowan, instead of judging her, proposed marriage. He showed her love. It kills me to know that I hurt Roshia that way. I know we are okay now... but we will never be fully okay. And for that I will always hate some part of me." He was in tears at this point. It felt more like a confession than anything and he laughed at his own stupidity.

Atlas stood up and pulled Elwin into a hug. "its okay, I wont tell anyone..." Atlas sighed a little. "I was wondering why theyd have such a rushed wedding. Didnt think it was because of something like that though." He said quietly. "Rowan seems like a good man though, i'm sure he'll make her happy. " He said. "So are you still having doubts about me? Or are we good now that we know each other a little better?" He asked.

Elwin gasped softly, he wasn't expecting to be hugged. He was warm and toned. "I will always doubt your taste in horrible men." He smiled, mumbling against his shoulder.

"Thats fine...I wont mind as long as you dont steal my cat. " Atlas said with a chuckle. He smiled and pulled Elwin away a little, looking back at Roshia's dreass. "That dress is beautiful by the way. Much better than the one my sister got married in, hers had these awful puffy sleeves and a train that went on for days. Took six people to hold it up just to get it to the venue." Atlas shook his head with a sigh.

Elwin looked up at him when pushed him away, but smiled when he complimented his dress then cringed when he described his sister's dress. "That sounds horrible. I am so sad anyone had to see that." He turned, looking over the dress. Elwin was truly in love with it. It was originally Ameria's but she didn't fit it like Roshia did. He turned dramatically to Atlas, dragging his hands over the suit and pulling Atlas against him, "You better not fall in love with Roshia when you see her in that dress. She is going to be irresistible, fight it." He said dramatically in a teasing voice.
