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 watched him with amusement, laughing softly at his innocence. He looked up, appreciating the stars too."You know, I haven't looked at them in a very long time. I guess you get used to these things when you have lived here all you life. Though, I am glad I got to look at them now." Elwin smiled, trying hard not to glance at him. Turning on his heels he looked over his shoulder. "My house is this way, next to Roshia's." He played with his braid, "I have a fully cleaned guest bedroom, so please excuse the cloth and sewing stuff around the house." He got to his house and opened his door, lighting up the lamp next to the door before dashing to the lamp on the other side of the room and lighting it also.

"Oh I dont mind a little mess, my place is ten times worse some days. My cat likes to make a mess of things while im away. Cant imagine what hes doing to the place right now. " Atlas chuckled as he walked in. "Besides, a home should look lived in" He said as he watched Elwin dash to the other side of the room to light a lamp. "Well today was an interesting day wasnt it?" He said. "Truthfully im typically quite an introvert, so i dont get to meet new people to often. Besides customers of course" Atlas said with a sigh. "But im glad you stopped in today" He smiled. "Well I guess I should be heading to bed then, which was is the guest room?" He asked, yawning once more.

Elwin blushed and showed him to the room which was on the other side of the house, away from his own. "You have a cat? That's cute. I haven't really had pets, mostly because I am not good with them" He opened the door to a clean guest bedroom. "Here you go. I... I am glad I got to meet you. You are the nicest guy I have met. I will be gone for a few, I have to go next door. If you need anything... just holler out the door." He laughed softly. He said his good night and walked out, heading towards Roshia's.

The light was still on at Roshia's. He looked in her windows and saw no one so he took the time to go in. He heard laughter coming from her room, he recognized her's but couldn't figure out the other's till they started talking. Elwin stood there for a moment before rushing through the door. Roshia and Nasir were in bed, talking like they were husband and wife. "What the hell is going on?!" Elwin was screaming, though he didn't mean to.

Roshia hurried out the bed, they both were dressed. "It isn't what it looks like..."

"I told you this what going to happen. This is..." He was freaking out. Nasir got up and walked over.

"Let's calm down and just talk about this." He said trying to calm everyone down.

"Calm down? You...you both did..." Elwin was looking back and forth from her to Nasir.

Roshia was beginning to cry. "Get out out, Elwin. NOW!" She yelled, but left instead.

Nasir stayed inside as Elwin followed. "This is disgusting. You have to stop this. You can come back. I was trying to save you from this. I saw the signs... I brought Atlas here for you. I can still save you!"

Roshia turned toward him, "Saving?! The only person who ever needed saving was you. Leave me alone...NOW." She turned back to leave when Elwin grabbed her arm to stay. She turned around swinging her fist and hitting Elwin straight in the mouth. He flew back, falling on his butt. "You are so damn unappreciative. Did I ONCE say that you liking guys was DISGUSTING? No, I accepted you with no questions asked. I fought countless people for you! I stood up to father who I adore! Yet you come in MY HOUSE and JUDGE ME."

Elwin was crying now, holding his bloody mouth. She bent down to his eye level, "You are no longer my brother. I want nothing to do with you."

"R-Roshia...no..." He mumbled through tears and pain. Their mother came rushing out. Elwin and Roshia were both crying now.

"What is going on. Elwin why are you bleeding? Roshia what is going on?"

Roshia looked at her mother, anger reading all over her face, "I lost my twin tonight. He is dead." Was all she said before she ran off. Elwin cried out for her.

Elwin told his mother not to worry about it and he will work it out. He couldn't stop crying, but tried to be quiet about it as he quietly closer his front door and into his room. He walked back and forth in his room trying to figure out he could work this out. Roshia never hit him before... and he could feel the split. He couldn't feel that connection with her anymore. He really was dead to her. "Roshia...please..." He begged the empty room.

Atlas was just almost asleep when he heard Elwin come back in the door. He could hear him pacing in his room, a couple floor boards creaking as he did. He seemed distressed. Atlas got up from his slumber, not bothering with putting his shirt back on, and walked out of the room. He paused for a moment and then knocked on Elwins door. He could here him speaking but couldnt make out what he was saying. "Elwin?...You okay in there?" He asked as he stood outside the door. "Did something happen?" He questioned, then waited quietly for an answer.

Elwin heard the knock and tried to dry his eyes and look at least a bit better. He cleaned up his lip and slowly opened the door slowly. "J-Just a sibling fight is all." He managed to say while fighting back tears. He glanced down at the shirtless chest before going back to looking up at him. "Sorry if I woke you." He whispered.

Atlas looked down at Elwin. His eyes widening. "A sibling fight huh? Your lips all cut up...Come here for a minute..." Atlas grabbed onto Elwins hand and took him into the kitchen, he found a clean dish cloth and soaked it in water and had Elwin sit down. He gently cleaned his wound until it stopped bleeding. "Must have been quite the fight...You dont have to tell me about it if you dont want to, But if you need to, I'm here, I wont judge you..." He said softly while inspecting Elwins lip and face for any other cuts or bruises.

Elwin's emotions were everywhere. He followed Atlas into his kitchen and sat when he had him sit. It was usually Roshia who would clean his wounds, never paying attention to her own. He teared up, not from the pain, but the thought of his sister shunning him. He tried to search for the words. Elwin wanted to tell Atlas, but where would he even start? "I really fucked up. Roshia cut the twin connection." He laughed sadly. "You wouldn't understand it unless you were a twin. It is like...something inside you withers away. It dies." He tried hard not to cry, laughing instead. "I brought you her for her... I wanted you two to get together. I didn't want her to go down the road she did... and instead of trying to understand her I became the people she would beat up for being judgemental towards me." He looked away, whispering in defeat, "I lost her for good."

Atlas listened as he spoke. "I dont think i can ever really understand that, but, I had to cut ties with my own sister before i moved here. She doesnt approve of my lifestyle. And i know it hurts, probably not as much as it hurts you, but it did hurt." He said softly. "I cant do much but say to give her some time, apologize if possible, and try to rebuild if shes willing. And If shes not, well then theres nothing you or I can do, thats on her" He said. Atlas couldnt help but laugh a little at the notion of he and Roshia getting together. "You brought me home to woo your sister?" He asked. "I didnt come to woo your sister, I came because youre interesting and I like your company. I couldnt have woo'd Roshia, id be too interested in what YOU were doing." He said with a chuckle. "But in all seriousness, just give it some time, It was a heated argument, people say things they dont mean when theyre hurt and angry..Just...Give it a few days and talk to her then, but dont expect a complete turn around right away ok?" He said with a soft tone once again.

Elwin nodded, it was all he could do. He was in a way speechless, because in the end his sister was right. Maybe if he had left her alone, he would still have his twin, and his face wouldn't hurt so much. His pale face blushed, he wasn't expecting Atlas to think he was interesting. He knew he had to give her space and time, but he felt empty. "Thanks, Atlas. Roshia always approved of everything I did...well she did. You have to understand, she isn't at fault here. I am sorry your sister could never come to understand that you were more important than what she thought you should be doing. Maybe you are right...give her time to cool off and apologize. Though I honestly don't think she can forgive me on what I did. She always stood in front of me when people threw stones and I end up stabbing her in the back." Tears were coming back. "I think we both should get some rest, yeah. Thank you for helping me and have a good night, Atlas. And for god's sake, put on a shirt before you catch a cold." He joked, softly smiling as he looked over his shoulder before disappearing into his room.

Atlas looked down at his bare chest and smirked before standing up and walking to the guest room. "Got it, Come out naked next time, will do." He said loud enough for Elwin to hear him. He closed the door and walked over to the bed and layed on his back. He covered himself up with the blanket and thought about the day they had. He nuzzled into his pillow and eventually drifted off to sleep.

Elwin started getting dressed for bed when he heard Atlas' footsteps. "Got it, Come out naked next time, will do." said Atlas loud enough for him. Elwin held his shirt to his chest and looked at the door mouthing "Oh my god" before laughing and getting into be. He laid there thinking about everything. Though his heart raced it also ached.

Atlas got up at around three thirty in the morning and crept out into the kitchen, wearing nothing but his pants and an apron. He raided the fridge and found eggs, bread, and some bacon. He got to cooking, being as quiet as possible. He toasted up the bread until it was beautifully golden and set it aside, then he poached the eggs and made a hollandaise sauce to go over the eggs, he also crisped up some of the bacon as well. He cleaned the used bowls up and found some plates. He first put the toast on the plate then carefully put the poached eggs with the runny yolk on top of that and put a layer of sauce on top and plated the bacon next to it. He finished it off by sprinking a pinch of powdered hot pepper offer the sauce. He set the plates at the table and knocked on Elwins door. "Time for breakfast~" He said in a sing song tone.

Elwin smelt the food before he heard the knock on the door. He rolled over before slowly getting up. He opened the door slowly, "How are you so alive at such an hour?" He tried to say before covering his mouth to yawn. His hair was out of its braid and hung over both shoulders. It waved at the bottom before curling at the ends some. He walked into the kitchen and turned around, "You know you didn't have to do this, right? My sis-"He stopped himself when he realized that he wouldn't be going back to his sister's for breakfast anymore and on que his lip started to hurt... or rather he just noticed. "Sorry, thank you for making breakfast. It smells amazing."

"Uh-uh, we have no time for being down today, we have cake to bake, and if you bake a cake when youre down its gonna be a sad cake. We dont like sad deflated cakes do we?" Atlas said, as he grabbed Elwins hand and pulled him over to the table and sat him down "Eat up. Youre comin with me today, you can see the world I live in, since you showed me a little of yours" He said as he sat down and took a bite of his breakfast. He glanced at Elwin for a moment as he ate rather energetically. "You can meet my cat, she loves everyone, so im sure she will like you too" He said with a bit of enthusiasm.

Elwin smiled and ate breakfast. It was delicious, like everything Atlas made.
He is so energetic. It is so cute, but kind of reminds me of my kindergarten teacher. Hell he was cute too. No shame in that. He looked up at Atlas, food in cheek and nodded before swallowing. "I would love your recipe on how to be so energetic in the morning. And your cat sounds like a sweetheart. I wouldn't mind, though I did get hissed at by one cat in my lifetime." He laughed. "Oh and I will warn you now... I have no idea how to bake."

Atlas finishes his breakfast and washed up his plate. "Baking isnt that hard, it the decorations that drive me up the damn wall" He said, shaking his head. "As far as energy in the morning...Well i drink a lot of coffee so maybe all that caffeine is stored till morning, i dont know. I used to hate getting up before noon" He said with a chuckle. "well im gonna finish getting dressed while you finish up your breakfast" He said as he stripped off his apron and folded it up. "Dont worry, i wont catch a a cold, i promise"

Elwin listened while he ate. Maybe I can make a cake for Roshia. She likes Amaretto. He watched as Atlas got up and laughed. "Sounds good. " He laughed. When he was out of site he finished off and cleaned his plate before going get dressed himself.

Atlas finished getting dressed and de-messed his hair and came back out to wait for Elwin to be ready. WHen Elwin came out he said "Alright well lets get going, We have to stop by my place so i can change into something fresh and then we can head down to the cafe and get those cakes made, and you can get a lesson in baking!" He picked up the basket of eggs he has gotten the day before and held the door open for Elwin. They chit chatted on the way to Atlas' house, which was above the cafe. Atlas opened the door to be greeted by a small grey cat who meowed and purred happily. She rubbed on his legs until she saw Elwin, she stared for a minute and then walked over and began rubbing against his legs as well. "Elwin, this is Biscuit, Biscuit, this is Elwin." He said with a chuckle. "See? She likes you already" He said next. Atlas home was a typical mans, house, there were little decorations and few personal belongings strewn about. But there were a lot of potted plants and flowers. "I'll be right back ok?" He disappeared into his room to change, leaving Elwin with the cat. Who sat at Elwins feet and purred loudly.

Elwin enjoyed the walk to Atlas' cafe/home. It was quiet and not many people were out and about. He had wondered if that is why Roshia and their father would wake up early. In his family quiet only happened when they were asleep. They got to his house and he froze when the cat stared at him, hoping Atlas was right, but he was. The cat purred and rubbed on his leg. "Elwin, this is Biscuit, Biscuit, this is Elwin." He said with a chuckle. "See? She likes you already" He said next before he told them that he would be back. Elwin nodded and waited till he was gone to squat down and pet the cat. It purred and rubbed against his hand, "Can't believe he named you after a food item, but then again he is a baker." Elwin said softly with a laugh. The cat stared up at him with a blank expression, which made him laugh a bit more. He stood back up again and looked around. It was kind of bland, minus the plants and flowers, compared to his house which was stocked with colorful fabrics and crafted stuff from his family memeber. Elwin bit the bottom corner of his lip trying to force back the memories of him and his sister.

Atlas finished getting dressed just in time to hear Elwins comment about the name of the cat. He stood in the doorway to his bedroom and said. "Well, i mean, i could have named her mittens." The cat shot Atlas a look of disgust and Atlas chuckled. "I know, i know. Youre not "one of those" cats. C'mon lets get you breakfast." He said as he walked to the kitchen and grabbed the cats food in a dish and set if out for her. She meowed loudly and ate her breakfast. "Alright, lets get going to the cafe then" He said and held the door open for Elwin. They went down to the kitchen in the cafe, which was absolutely huge and Atlas started pulling bowls and whisks and piping bags from the neatly packed cupboards. He set the oven temps and washed his hands, telling Elwin to do the same.

First he taught elwin how to make a simple vanilla cake batter, and then a simple chocolate, then let him do the lemon completely by himself. "See not too hard right?" Atlas asked looking at Elwin.

Elwin looked up at the now dressed Atlas and followed him to the kitchen. It was indeed big. Then Atlas started taking out bowls and he learned how to make cake that day, when he made the lemon he looked down at the bowl, "Can I eat the batter?" He asked looking up innocently at Atlas. The batter had smelled so good with each flavor, that his mouth was watering. He never did the baking, that was Ameria and his mother's doing. Not even Roshia baked... well not often like the other two.

"Well i mean its not going to kill you if you do, go right ahead" Atlas said with a chuckle. After Elwin had finished tasting the batter, Atlas poured them into cake molds and set them in the oven to bake. He made note of the time and decided to move onto frosting. "Well frosting is easy, its just powdered sugar, milk, and flavoring. Here, I'll make a flavor and then you make a flavor of your choosing that you think would go good on that lemon cake" He said. Atlas quickly whipped up a chocolate, coffee infused frosting to go on the chocolate cake and then watched as Elwin made his frosting.

Elwin took a small taste of the batter and made a face. It certainly did not taste as good as baked cake. "Now I see why my mother and Ameria never licked the spoon." He watched Atlas pour the cake into molds and place them into the oven. Elwin watched carefully before starting on his own. He was going to make an Amaretto flavor icing to go with the lemon cake. He held up the bowl to Atlas, "Does this taste okay? I was hoping to put it on the lemon cake." He was the child asking his teacher how his project was coming along. He honestly hoped it was alright and didn't kill Atlas in his own kitchen with too much flavoring.

Atlas watched Elwins face as he prepared his own cake and put it in the oven, he was actually taking things pretty seriously. He asked him to taste his frosting for his cake, Atlas nodded and took a sample of it, thinking for a minute. "Yup, tastes pretty good to me. Should pair nicely with the lemon cake. You're doing really well, especially for someone who doesnt know how to bake...Uh, so we have a little time before we cant take the cakes out of the oven, then we have to wait for them to cool off...So...What would you like to do until then?" Atlas asked as he put the icing in the fridge.
