What'll it be for you today?

0 · 2,095 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.

Rowan


Rowan stood up and held out a hand for Roshia, helping her up as well. "Well we should probably be getting you something to eat then. Sounds like Atlas and Elwin are getting ready to leave too. We'll have to do a beach day again, it was fun." He said taking Roshias hand in his own.


Ofelia


Ofelia couldnt help but giggle at Nasir. "YOU? Fat!? I couldnt even imagine that. You're just so tall you'd block my view almost completely if i stood too close since im so much smaller than you." She said as she looked down at him, playing with his soft hair. She had never really thought about their height difference before but she realized that she was pretty short, especially for an elf.

Elwin blushed and groaned. "Eating is just going to make me fatter." He frowned, but got up too and dusted off too. He didn't bother on putting his wet shirt on, it would just bug him now. Elwin looked at everyone else and then back at Atlas.





Image


Roshia smiled and nodded. It as a good day for her. She hadn't puked once. "I could eat a village!" She said as she stretched and held his hand in both of hers. She giggled and kissed his arm as she looked back and waited for the others.





Image


Nasir laughed this time before gently biting her thigh and siting up "We better go eat. I am hungry and you, my dear, look very appetizing." He helped her up held onto her small hand. The height difference was... a bit big, but he loved that. "Shall we go?" He asked everyone before leading them back to the path that lead to the village.

Atlas shook his head at Elwin. "No no no, youre no where near fat. The heck goes on in your brain? Youre perfect just how you are." He said before leaning over and kissing Elwins temple. He waited for everyone else to be ready to go, and once everyone was, he grabbed Elwins hand and walked back to the village with everybody.

Ofelia


Ofelia squeaked and turned a shade of red when Nasir bit her thigh. But she held his hand and walked with him even though she wanted to run off like a frightened field mouse. She clung tightly to his arm and stared at the ground as they walked back to the village, not wanting him to see her blushing again.

Marcus had not been to the village in a couple years. The last time he seen Elwin was in his house the night he left. He partook in their usual rituals and was lying there when Elwin begged him to choose him over his fear, but what he hadn't known is that it wasn't the fear of his father it was the fear of putting Elwin in danger. He had snuck out of the house once Elwin was asleep. Even though he had been gone all these years all he ever thought about was Elwin, but he made a rule to stop coming and seeing him. He had to or he would lose the battle and put Elwin at death's door.

Now he was sent to the village by his father to get help from Nasir and Elwin. He tried to get his father to make someone else go, but he said that he hadn't been there in a couple years and it was about time he paid them a visit, especially since Roshia, the only person who could completely hand him his own ass, had recently gotten married. Marcus sighed, rubbing his face, as he sat back in his carriage. The travel was long and he had time to think of what he was going to do once he saw Elwin, but nothing ever seemed right.

The carriage pulled up by Nasir, Roshia, Elwin, and people he had never seen before. He saw through the window Elwin holding hands with another man. His fist curled, he couldn't stand the sight, but he hopped out and smiled, "Hello stra-" He was interrupted by a searing pain in his jaw and stumbled to the side. Marcus looked over to see Roshia cocking her arm back to swing again, but Nasir stood in between. "No." was all Nasir said, but the tone seemed to send chills down everyone's, including his, spine.

Roshia glared at him, then Nasir, before grabbing Elwin's hand and walking away. Elwin kept holding the other man's hand as they walked. Roshia turned back around and screamed, "You come anywhere near him and I will rip your throat out once and for fucking all!" She turned back around and stormed off into Elwin's house. The whole time though Elwin stared at him with such shock, anger, and hurt. Marcus couldn't bare to look at him anymore and turned to look at the group instead, smiling.

Everyone, besides Nasir, looked shocked. "Long story short, I deserved it. Let me introduce myself. I am Prince Marcus Hilyard. I come with gifts for the married couple." His hand pointed to the wagon behind the carriage that had things from rugs to jewelry. Then he looked at Nasir, "And I have business with you old friend."

Nasir huffed, "What can I help you with?" He asked. Next to him was a very tiny girl. Must be his girl, nice.

Marcus looked back to Nasir, "Father needs some furniture done. Some asshole came ambushing into the place and destroyed a few of the chambles and chairs. Also actually need to talk Elwin too, mother wants a couple dresses made, but it looks like I am going to have to wrestle Roshia for that to happen." He laughed.

Nasir turned to the girl, "Why don't you go home, we can meet up at the spot from earlier today... remember you don't have to come, but if you do then it means you are ready." He had leaned down and kissed her on the forehead before turning back to Marcus. "I can do that."

Marcus nodded, "Good, glad to hear." He then turned to the only guy left that seemed to be Roshia's husband. "I am assuming you are Roshia's husband, Hi, just show my men where to put these at. The palace hopes you enjoy your gifts. And sorry about it being so much, my mother is a bit crazy when it comes to giving gifts." He smiled.

Atlas didnt like the face Elwin made when the carriage pulled up, he already knew it was about to be a bad day. He was going to ask Elwin if he was okay but Roshia was throwing punches the second the new man stepped out of it. Then he knew that it really wasnt going to be a good day if this man had Roshia punching him before he could even open his mouth to speak. Elwin was frozen by the time Roshia cocked her arm back to punch the man again. But Nasir stepped in with a tone that seemed to frighten everyone to their core. Before Atlas was fully able to comprehend what exactly was going on, Roshia was dragging Elwin inside his house. Atlas followed close behind, closing the door behind them. "Uhm...So...Who was that exactly? Its pretty apparent none of you like him." He asked once they were inside.

Rowan



Rowan stood back, his eyes wide while his wife swung at the man that had pulled up in the carriage in front of them, he had planned on pulling her to the side when she wound up to do it again. He didnt want her getting in a fight with a man at all, especially not while pregnant. Nasir spoke up and she stormed off with Elwin and Atlas in tow, threatening to rip the mans throat out. Rowan made a a mental note to never make Roshia angry, in fear that she might try to break his face. His attention snapped back to the man as he introduced himself. Rowan knew of the man but had never formally met him, only knowing him through word of mouth from his father. He had brought wedding gifts for Roshia and him, though Rowan doubted she actually wanted them. Rowan smiled. "Its nice to meet you, i'm Rowan. We appreciate the gifts. I'll show them where to put them right away." He said then instructed the men to drop the gifts off at roshias home, assisting them with it.


Ofelia



Ofelia flinched when Roshia punched the man, and she flinched again when Nasir said "No" in a tone that scared just about everyone standing around him. SHe didnt know what to do when Roshia spat threats at the man and ran off to Elwins house with Elwin and Atlas too. Nasir turned to her and told her that she should be getting home. She agreed with him. He reminded her about meeting up and kissed her forehead then returned to business with the man she now understood to be Marcus. Ofelia glanced at the man before turning and walking back to her own home. She showered the sand and lake off of herself and then made lunch for herself before walking outside to check the fences.

Elwin was too shock to move. He hadn't expected to see Marcus since the day he left him without saying goodbye. Everything from two years ago started to boil inside the pit of his stomach. He hated Marcus, but somewhere deep down still loved him, which Roshia always called him stupid for because he would only get pushed away and treated like some stupid child. It had been that way since he was fourteen.

Elwin held tight to Atlas' hand, afraid if he let go he might go back to Marcus. He was like a magnet and Elwin refused to go back to that. He had Atlas who actually treated him right; who picked him instead of running away from his feelings. When Roshia punched him he had to press his lips together to keep from laughing and at the time to keep himself for telling her to stop. He didn't want Atlas to think Elwin still had feelings, so when Roshia pulled him away he dragged Atlas with him.

Now they were in the house and he let go of Atlas' hand and stared at the floor. "The prince... I am going to shower. The sand is start-" He forgot that he was making baby clothes and he wanted to keep them a secret from Roshia until later. Elwin dash for the table, gathering everything and running to his room. "Okay now I am going to shower. Atlas, please make Roshia eat. She has a baby to feed." He glared at her playfully before going shower, acting like nothing happened before coming into the house.




Image


Roshia was pissed when she saw the carriage and cart. She knew exactly who it was that was in there, so when he stepped out she took the chance to swing. After his last visit Elwin was a mess. He wouldn't eat anything and he buried himself in his work. He wouldn't talk and slept when he was working. Going outside was a joke, he would face the world. She had to live with him till he got better. Every night she could hear him crying. It was a mess and she made a vow she would murder him if she ever saw him, but he kept himself away for a couple years. She thought they were rid of him for good.

Her eyebrow raised at Elwin's dash but let it be. When she heard the shower running she decided to fill Atlas on the details."That piece of shit out there is a piece of shit. He does something to Elwin EVERY time he is here. I don't exactly know what happens behind closed doors with them, but it is something totally different than how he treats Elwin in public. I know he acts some kind of sweet to him in private, but it is like he doesn't treat Elwin the same way in public, like he is ashamed of Elwin or some shit. The first time, we were like fourteen. Something went down with Elwin and Marcus in private, like down down if you know what I mean, and I guess Elwin thought they were a thing and Marcus acted like he was disgusted. It broke Elwin, it always breaks him, and that is when I snapped. I go on a murdering spree every time I see him. As they got older Marcus wouldn't act so disgusted as he would make fun of Elwin for like guys. So I am always confused as why Elwin would go back to him EVERY DAMN TIME." She was fuming.





Image


Nasir knew something was going to go down when he saw the carriage. It was the shit storm he was waiting for. He had to stop Roshia from beating the shit out of Marcus, also he didn't want her to hurt the baby, which is why when he told her no it came out harsher than he expected. He had to snap her out of it. When everyone left he took Marcus to his shop. "You always stirring up some kind of trouble here, Marcus. Roshia doesn't need to be fighting, so if you see her, run the other way because you don't want me to step in." He warned.

Marcus nodded, "I wasn't going to fight her, Nasir. I have changed... also it would be completely pointless since she hands me my ass every damn time." They both shook their heads and sat down in the shop. "Father wants dark wood for everything, doesn't matter what kind as long as it is dark." Nasir nodded taking notes. "If you can, he would like to have gold trims in there, like in the design, which is all up to you. He trusts your work. As for the chairs, same thing. Once you are done you can send word and I will come pick it up since father is so damn determined for me to come back here. I wasn't going to come, Nas, I was going to get someone else but father... you know how he is."

He nodded, knowing full well how his father could be. Nasir and Marcus' fathers were good friends, good enough that Nasir's father would go into battle for him. Last time was right before Haera was born. It tore his father up to miss the birth and a full year. Marcus' father paid him back in land and shipping his own son off for two weeks in the summer and sometimes for the winter months. "Just... leave Elwin alone this time, okay? I know your mother needs dresses, but other than professional business work, try not to mess with him. He has been through some shit recently and how you left him last time... Even I am tempted to throw a punch at you."

Marcus cringed, "I understand. I left him for a good reason, Nas. I didn't want to hurt him anymore. Being in love with your brother is the hardest thing for me. You know no one can know about him, for his safety. I left in the middle of the night so he didn't have to deal with me leaving in the morning." He cleared his throat, smiling a bit, ""I see he has found someone. Good looking guy, which Elwin deserves. He deserves the best... so you know... if the guy breaks his heart, and I know it is calling the kettle black, but let me know and I can get rid of him." Nas smirked which made Marcus laugh.

Nasir got up, "Let's go try to talk to Elwin. I will play body guard." They both laughed as the walked out and to Elwin's house. Nasir knocked while opening the door. Marcus and Nasir walked in just in time to see Elwin walking into the kitchen with just a town on. Elwin turned red from head to toe, while Roshia looked like she was going to murder him and Marcus. "Sorry to barge in... uhm.... yeah Marcus' mom needs some dress... so I will be sitting with the two as they discussed... or we can all sit with them. Just... go put some clothes on Elwin."

Elwin nodded and walked off into his room.

Atlas watched Elwin skitter around to grab all the baby clothes before rushing off to the shower. He got the impression Elwin didnt want to tell him just who Marcus was. But Roshia definitely did. Atlas cooked pasta for everyone while Roshia rambled on about the jack ass known as Marcus. Atlas couldnt help but be annoyed about the way he treated Elwin, but he couldnt talk much since he himself didnt exactly deal with not being straight very well either. But at least he didnt torment anyone like that. He shook his head. "Well it looks like Elwins going to have a hard time getting rid of me until he leaves then. If Marcus thinks he can just waltz in and torment Elwin again, he's got another thing coming to him. I doubt he'll try anything if they dont get a chance to be alone." He said while he cooked. A few minutes later the pasta was done. "Foods done, you better eat while its hot." He said right as Elwin walked out in towel. Atlas opened his mouth to say something to him when Nasir and Marcus walked in. Elwin turned bright red and fled to his bedroom, meanwhile Atlas resisted the urge to glare at Marcus and ate his pasta in the kitchen while Elwin finished getting changed.

Elwin had smelled the pasta and didn't think about putting on clothes, since he had his towel on, and walked right out just when Nasir and Marcus walked in. He froze, the way Marcus was staring at him was the way he always used to when they were alone. Nasir had ordered him to go put clothes on and he did. When he came back Roshia and Atlas were stuffing their faces with pasta.

He walked up to the two men and smiled. "I already have your mother's measurements, do you know what style and colors I can get to them as soon as possible." He tried to hide the shaking in his voice by being professional, but the way Marcus was staring made him nervous, then he smiled and Elwin almost melted.

"Of course, she wants one of the to be empire and to the floor, that one is to be the in the color maroon. The next one she says surprise her, though that one needs to be in gold and blue. She saw one lady wearing one of your creations after she said surprise her, and my mother about lost it. She hasn't stopped talking about it since. Your work is indeed incredible." Marcus' voice was deep and sweet.

"I... I can do that. Tell her I appreciate her comments and love for my work."





Image


Marcus wanted to make a comment on Elwin in only a towel. How he liked that his skin still seemed to me soft and smooth and that he loved the freckles. Better yet he just wanted to touch him, but he knew better. Elwin had someone now and he was going to respect that, or at least try. When Elwin left to get dressed he could feel the tension in the room, but said nothing as he stood by Nasir. He didn't want to mess this up. He was only here to do errands, not Elwin, and leave.

When Elwin finally decided to come out, he got down to business, which was what he wanted to do and Marcus gave him the orders. He thought Elwin had got braver in the time he was gone, though his voice was shaky and his stuttered. Marcus crossed his arms so that he didn't reach out to stroke his face. He was going to leave the village after placing all the orders, but when he looked back at Elwin's boyfriend. He was handsome, alright, but he didn't look like he could save a kitten if he had to. The ego in him rose.

"I see you have a boyfriend now. Cute, hope he can protect you when the time comes. It would be a shame if a prince had to come save you." Marcus chuckled and Nasir sighed. Mentally he facepalmed, he didn't want to start anything, but he couldn't stand seeing Elwin with someone else.

Roshia dropped her plate on the counter and was on the move to get to him, but Nasir gave her a look and she stayed where she was. Marcus looked back at Elwin who was red. "Atlas is very capable of handling things on his own and I don't need saving, but it the chance arises then he can very well step up to the plate. I am in no need of a selfish and delusional prince." Elwin was mad, but his face showed hurt. "I think you know where the door is, Nasir can you take him out of my house now."

Nasir nodded and ushered him out. "I know! I am so sorry... I was all good... I was going to walk out, but then I saw the other guy and was like... there is no way Tiny Tim could save him, but what the fuck do you think I was doing by being away? Ughhhhh! I just fuck everything up when it comes to Elwin. I can fight wars with a clear mind... but Elwin... he just does something to me, ever since we were fucking kids!"

Atlas ate his pasta quietly while they waited for Elwin to get dressed. He was done by the time Elwin came back out and washed his plate just before stood around as Marcus barked orders at Elwin. Everything seemed to be going well, everyone was acting in a very professional way. But Marcus for whatever reason had to comment on Atlas' ability to protect Elwin if needed. Roshia would have murdered him on the spot if Nasir hadnt given her the look that he did, and Atlas watched as Roshia froze in her spot, looking more irritated than he had ever seen. Atlas didnt bother reacting to the jesting of a man he didnt know, it didnt bother him at all. It sure as hell bothered Elwin though, and boy did he rip Marcus a new one. Atlas leaned back on the counter while they walked out of the door and closed it. "So...Who wants tea?" He asked, moving along as to not dwell on the unfortunate situation that had just occurred.

Marcus had started walking towards the carriage with Nasir when he stopped. He turned around and saw Roshia going into her own home and took the opportunity to finally express his feelings. He had to have Elwin. He would fight for him even if it killed him."I am sorry, Nas. I have to try now more than ever." Marcus ran back to Elwin's house and banged on his door and screamed through it, "Elwin James Keavaris. I fucking love you! I know I have treated you less than you deserved. I was a scared fool. I just wanted you to be safe. I didn't want my enemies to become yours. I was a fucking fool. I need you Elwin... more than you can ever imagine. So I am going to fight for your heart back. I am sorry, Elwin's boyfriend, but he is worth fighting for." He took a deep breath and leaned his head against the door.





Image


Elwin stood there for a moment taking it all in. Roshia had declined saying she had to go and help Rowan and walked out. "I would love a cup." He smiled up at Atlas and walked over, hugging him from behind and kissing between his shoulders. Elwin had just let go when he heard the bang on the door and Marcus' confession. Everything in Elwin tensed up. The very thing he wanted from Marcus finally came, but at the wrong time. He teared up, feeling his heart breaking all over again, but it stirred too. He didn't know what to do.

Elwin turned to Atlas with a sorry face, "I will be right back, just... give me a moment.." Elwin kissed Atlas' cheek before opening the door and pushed pass Marcus and closing the door. "You have no right doing that, Marcus!" He whispered, trying not to cry.

"I am a selfish man when it comes to you, Elwin. If this guy loves you as much as I do... he can fight, because you are worth it." He cupped the side of his face and ran a thumb on his cheek. "I left because I wanted to protect you, but all I ever thought about was you and how can I make a better place for you? I was so stupid to have treated you like that, just so I could make it easier for you to hate me. So when it came for me to finally say goodbye for the last time you still loved me..." Marcus' face turned soft.





Image


Roshia had to decline tea. She just wanted to be with Rowan right now. She excused herself and walked into her house and straight to him. He had his back toward her, but she hugged him and kissed his shoulder. "I love you... for the things that you do." She blushed hard for what came out her mouth and tried to save herself. It felt like an awkward silence when she heard Marcus screaming his confession to Elwin. She hugged him tighter. "If I let go I am going to walk out of this house and murder him." She mumbled into his back.

Atlas was happy when Elwin came up and hugged his back, but he didnt stay there long. Marcus apparently ran back up to the door and started yelling, professing his love for Elwin. Atlas let out a sigh after Elwin gave him a sad look and said to give him a minute. Elwin disappeared out the door and closed it tightly behind him. Atlas shook his head and made tea. He didnt want to think about what they were talking about and he tried not to worry about it. Elwin had made it pretty clear a few minutes ago that he didnt want a selfish, delusional prince. Atlas was however worried about the how Marcus being around would take a toll on Elwins well being. He walked to the door and opened it, pulling Elwin back into the house. " I'm not going to let you hurt him again. Elwin's happier when you arent around. If you really love him, youd let go of your selfish desires and move on. He doesnt need someone who torments him in his life. You came and finished the business you had with him, dont torment him any longer by sticking around, only because you cant stand to see him happy with someone else. I think you've caused enough commotion today, you should just leave." Atlas walked back into the house and shut the door, locked it and walked over to pour he and Elwin some tea.

Rowan was busy trying to figure out where to put all the gifts that Marcus had delivered when Roshia walked in and hugged his back. She said she loved him, then tried to cover it up by saying it was because of the things he does. Rowan smiled and turned around, hugging Roshia tightly. "Well, I love you too." He whispered as he held her close and rubbed her back. "Dont worry, I wont let you run off to murder people. You cant leave if i dont let go." He before cupping her cheek and kissing her.

Elwin couldn't move, his heart was racing. He was about to answer when the door opened and Atlas pulled him in. " I'm not going to let you hurt him again. Elwin's happier when you aren't around. If you really love him, you'd let go of your selfish desires and move on. He doesn't need someone who torments him in his life. You came and finished the business you had with him, don't torment him any longer by sticking around, only because you cant stand to see him happy with someone else. I think you've caused enough commotion today, you should just leave."

Elwin stared at Marcus with an sad expression, but held on to the bottom of Atlas shirt. He would choose Atlas over Marcus, right? He didn't say anything when Atlas closed the door and locked it, but he sat down and watched Atlas pour them tea, "Look at you being a good house wife." His voice shook.

Marcus watched as the door opened and Elwin was pulled back. He didn't have time to say anything when the door closed in his face. He smirked. "You might have won this time, but I will be back in two months for my orders. Elwin, love, think about what I said, okay?" Marcus patted Nasir's shoulder before hopping into his carriage and riding off, thinking of ways he could win Elwin over, he just needed to get him alone.

Roshia smiled stretched from ear to ear when he told her he loved her. She loved being in his arms. She kissed him back, before tugging at his shirt, "You are a good man, Mr. Rowan. I couldn't have asked for better."

"Oh I'm a good housewife am I? Well at least thats something. At least I know I'm the wife now." Atlas said with a small chuckle as he set Elwins cup of tea in front of him. He had made a relaxing blend of tea in hopes it would help calm Elwin down a little. He sat down in the chair next to Elwin and sipped his tea before setting it down on the table and stretching. "You alright?" He asked quietly as he picked his mug back up.

Elwin chuckled, picking up his tea, and gently blowing before taking a sip. "Let's be honest, you do a marvelous job in the kitchen." He had smiled, but it soon disappeared as he hid behind his cup. "Of course, why wouldn't I be?" He asked taking a sip from his hot tea.

Roshia swayed with him, sliding her hands up his side and resting them on his chest. "Oh yeah, Atlas made pasta. That man can cook. We are full full." She giggled before putting on a more serious face. "Nothing good happens when the prince shows up. Well... not for Elwin." She nuzzled her face in his chest before pushing off him gently and turning around. She fed Cossie without saying another word.

"I was just making sure." Atlas said quietly, sipping his own tea. "Youre cute when you try to hide behind that cup you know." He winked before looking away and having another drink of tea. "So...What do you wanna do after tea? Well later than that, you still have baby clothes to make, so I can just read while you do that. Just dont stab your finger again!" Atlas finished his tea and washed his cup out. He was well used to drinking hot things so hot beverages usually didnt last him super long.

"Oh that bad huh? Well Atlas is still over there right? Things should be okay. And I would hope the man could cook, he runs a Cafe. Makes coffee that tasted like magic in your mouth. If I didnt know any better i'd say it was some kind of magic. " Rowan said, he watched Roshia feed Cossie who still didnt seem to like him since he had spent his time in the guest room the whole time Rowan was at the house alone. "Maybe I'll see about getting a dragon...Just an itty bitty one though..." He said watching cossie eat.

Elwin blushed, "Shh don't say stuff that makes me blush. I actually need to step out for bit and I need you to watch over the house while I am gone. Roshia always digs when she knows I am hiding stuff from her. So I need you to like... make sure she doesn't start digging. I know... after today she is a bit scary. Just like... guard the place. Okay? Thank you!" His placed the cup on his table and went over, kissing Atlas on the cheek before heading out the door.

He ran hoping he could catch up with Marcus. Elwin was getting to the lake when he saw the carriage at the Tavern. He hurried over, getting to the door, and catching his breath. When he was ready he walked in and saw him with a glass of whisky in his hand. Marcus looked up and smirked, "I knew you would come for me." He had was sitting at the bar. Elwin sat next to him. "I only came because I deserve answers." Elwin said. He was angry and the feeling in his heart needed to be put to rest.

"Answers to what?" He asked innocently.

"You know what! You come back after two years. Why did you have to come back when I am at my happiest and finally decide to confess to me?" Elwin needed to know.

Marcus downed the rest of his whisky and placed the glass on the bar before turning to Elwin, "I wasn't planning on coming back after I left you. I made a vow never to step foot back in the village, but of course my father just had to put his nose where it shouldn't be. Said I had to make a visit since it had been so long. I was going to leave you alone, because you deserved to be safe and I was just torturing us both. It was the most selfless thing I have ever done." His golden eyes glanced away from his and Marcus ran his hand over his mouth. "I had a plan all figured out when I learned I was coming over. I was going to place the orders and leave. Simple, but then I saw you with that map dude and something snapped." He placed a hand on Elwin's knee, "You are all I ever think about, you are all I ever wanted, you have to know that."

Elwin shoved his hand off, "You made your choice two years ago. You have no right to confess to me now of all times."

Marcus' golden eyes grew dark, "If you want me to leave you so badly tell me to go and never come back. Tell me to never see you again and I will do so, but they have to come from YOUR beautiful mouth, no one elses." Elwin blushed. He got silent and Marcus waited for him to say it, but he couldn't, no matter how much he wanted to. His heart just wouldn't let him.

Elwin stood up, "I have to g-." Marcus pulled him down to him and kissed his lips. Everything got silent to him. He wanted to pull away, but like a magnet he drew closer before Atlas' face popped into his mind. Elwin shoved Marcus away, tear in his eyes as he held his hand over his mouth.

Marcus smirked, "You still love me. I still have a chance. Let the war begin." He said over his empty glass. Elwin backed up before turning around and ran out. He ran till he was at the secret beach and screamed. He was tired of it all. For once he just wanted to be happy without some obstacle coming up. He stayed there for a while before drying his eyes and heading back home.

Roshia smiled. She stood straight and stretched. Cossie slowly looked around at Rowan and glared, like how dare he bring another dragon into his house. Roshia laughed then, "Don't be such a grump, Cossie. And you," she turned to Rowan, "should try bonding with him as I go to Elwin and check up on him." She kissed him before walking out and to her brother's house. She opened the door to see Atlas alone. "Where is Elwin?"

"He left. Kissed my cheek and ran off, said he needed to "step out" which I assume means he decided to run after whats his face. Since he used you as an excuse to have me stay here. He was out the door before I even had a chance to say one word." Atlas said, his head resting on the table. He was mad at himself for not trying to convince Elwin to stay, though it wasnt like Elwin gave him much time to say much of anything. "Whatever happened is probably over by now,assuming he caught up to the carriage, hes been gone for a good minute" He said glancing at the door. "I guess we'll find out what he decided he wants when he gets back"

Elwin got back home just when it got dark. Atlas looked mad and Roshia looked like she was going to murder him or not. "Did you seriously go see him?" Her voice was rough, she was clearly angry and he was clearly in no mood to deal with it.

"And if I did, what business is it to you?" Elwin snapped. Roshia stood up straighter and looked like she was going to punch him. "What business is it to me? ME! How about how I always had to pick your ass up every time he came around?! YOU nearly lost it the last time. And then you left Atlas here... that is some kind of fucked up."

"I needed answers! It wasn't like I could talk to him without YOU and Atlas getting in the way. I needed things to be clear, but whatever float you two's boat. You two know where the damn door is." He walked off, slamming his room door shut. He was mentally exhausted and didn't need anymore pressure. He just wanted everything to stop. Elwin sat on his bed and planted his face into his palms. "Maybe it is selfish of me to keep Atlas here... after everything that has happened this week..."

Atlas sighed when Elwin ran into his room and slammed the door shut. He shook his head and stood up, grabbing Elwins cup and setting it next to the sink. " Well I guess since i've apparently been in the way, I'm gonna head home. Maybe he can figure out what he wants if I'm not in his way. He knows where to find me if he wants to when he figures it out." Atlas said, his usual easygoing tone was gone and the soft smile he usually had was nowhere to be seen either. His voice was monotone and lifeless. He walked towards the door, stopping just behind Roshia. "Try not to kill him, okay?" He said looking back at her for a second before opening the front door and stepping out, closing the door quietly behind him. He walked back to the cafe, too exhausted from all the drama to stick around when Elwin clearly didnt want him there.

Elwin woke up with a headache. He hadn't slept well that night, tossing and turning. He got up and dressed, but stood in his living room for a while, just staring at the wall. He had to make a choice, Elwin knew that. So why was he even considering Marcus? Growling at himself he walked out of his house, and locking the door.

The whole way there he thought of what he would say and nothing seemed like it was good enough. He got to the front of the cafe and looked in. Atlas was there, working, smiling at customers as they ordered. He didn't want to go in now. He didn't want bother him and ruin his happy movie. Elwin stood there for a moment before just heading around and going into his apartment where he played with Biscuit. "Hey pretty girl." He said softly.

Atlas had gotten up at his usual time, not having slept well as usual and went to work. He tried to bury his thoughts in his work instead of thinking about what was going on with Elwin. It worked for a little bit but eventually he had to turn to serving customers to keep his thoughts at bay. Atlas eventually needed a break, so when his store manager walked in and put his apron on, Atlas decided to take a break to read in his apartment. He walked up the steps and walked in, closing the door behind him before he turned to see Elwin playing with the cat, who seemed more than happy to see him. Atlas wasnt entirely sure how to feel yet. "Oh, uh hi." He said as he took his apron off and hung it on the coat rack nezt to the door.
