Blake Barnes

0 · 1,070 views · located in Emilia's House

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

Description

ImageName:
Blake Barnes

Age:
22

Gender:
Male

Race:
Human

Appearance:
Blake stands at six feet and two inches tall and has straight, light blonde hair that tends to cover his right eye. He's slightly pale and has yellowish eyes. His body is decently toned, though he stays on the leaner side. He often wears suits of some sort, or at least a button up shirt and rarely ever is seen wearing jeans or a T-shirt.

Personality:
Blake is on the quieter side, though he blends in with other people very well. He is not shy in the least bit, and likes to take charge of situations whenever possible. He can be cold and calculating at times, but for the most part maintains a friendly enough demeanor so that people are rarely ever put off by it. He is very serious about his studies and work.

History:
Blake was the first born son out of the four children his parents had. He was a pretty happy child for most of his life, and got along with his siblings to come pretty well. That is until he found out that his younger brother, Levi, was the product of a fling his mother had with a man other than his father. Blake, who idolized his father, grew cold towards his younger brother, the constant reminder of their mothers poor judgment and commitment troubles. This caused a decent bit of trouble within the family, but eventually it just came to be an accepted thing. When Blake was a teenager he decided to choose a career in banking. He left home at eighteen after starting college and now works at one of the banks on the island while he finishes his studies.

So begins...

Q smiled, "Let's hope she does. I would really like to not have to stand outside of the door the whole time and I cannot stand when people defend men like your ex husband... but she is young and hopefully she will come to terms with who her father really is." He said and laid back, closing his eyes. "As for right now, you gotta be on your best behavior, Nyl. Stop trying to tease me all the time, woman." He smirked.

Emilia got dressed for her first day at her new job working at her uncle's bank. She was a nervous wreck, but she had to do it since she just got out of school and needed experience somewhere and no one would really hire her with the way she was, so her uncle took her under his wing. When she got into the building her little legs walked as fast as they could to her uncle's office. "M-Morning, Uncle." She said softly. Her uncle turned around and smiled brightly. "Morning, Em! I am so glad you are working with us. I know you are super scared, but I am putting you with the best of the best. He is such a sweet guy, you will love him." He said and walked her out of his office and to a man with blond hair. He was pretty handsome, she was going to lay that right down first, but something behind his eyes made her scared.

"Blake, this is Emilia, my niece. She is very shy, but I think you will be the best to work with her and show her the ropes." He siad before turning around and looking at her. "You try your hardest dear, I know you can do it!" He said cheerfully and left. She looked frightened that he would leave her like that so suddenly. For fucks sakes, Uncle... why so suddenly and with this guy who looks like he will chew me up and spit me out. Though... no.. no none of those thoughts. Fucking hell... man he is going to start talking to me. Just smile, Em... and nod.... She mentally groaned but smiled up at the man named Blake.

Blake looked up from what he was doing when he heard his bosses voice. He knew that he'd be meeting the girl he'd been put in charge of today. He looked over at her and smiled softly. "I can work with shy. Leave it to me." He said. He was pretty confident that the shyness wouldnt have any effect on him being able to show her the ropes. It was just teaching after all. The woman in front of him was very pretty, though she looked absolutely terrified. "Well, its very nice to meet you Emilia. How about we start off by showing you where everything is?" He said, it wasnt really a question, he was just letting her know what theyd be doing. He took her around to the different rooms, ecplaining where everything was and who to talk to if she needed certain kinds of paperwork or files. "And, this is the break room. Coffee is always brewing, theres tea too and a fridge if you want to bring your lunch with you instead of going out. Just put your name on it. Dont be afraid to use anything in here, its there for you to use after all. If we're out of something just let me know, i'll get someone on it." He said and looked down at her. "Any questions so far?"

Emilia went to say nice to meet you too but just nodded and smiled brightly. She followed him around like a lost puppy and marveled at how well her Uncle was doing. She was so proud of him and so jealous. If only she could be like him, her first step was to actually say something to this man, so when he asked her if she had any questions so far she looked up at him, "N-Nope!" She said cheerfully and mentally patted herself on the back. She was so proud! Her first word to this guy. Oh god... did my voice squeak too high? Just don't blush... She thought and then felt her cheeks get warm. OH MY GOD She thought and pretended nothing was happening.

Blake looked down at the girl and wondered if she was always so shy. She had to be, he hadnt been overly friendly or pried about anything. "Ok, good. If you do later, dont hesitate to ask." He said and thought about where to go next. "Okay well now that thats over with, lets go back to where you will be working and I can explain what you'll be doing here." He said and took her over to where she'd be working. He explained the different duties they had, and briefly how to do them, it was all kind of practice based to get used to it, she'd have to figure out her way of doing things herself. He explained the schedule that people liked to keep for each thing as well. "Ok, well, thats about it. Oh, and you'll rarely ever have to deal with a customer working where he has put you for now, so dont worry about any customer service nonsense." He said. It was clear the girl was very shy, so he was actually kind of glad they werent doing customer service things, not till she was settled in of course, and then it was up to her uncle if he decided to put her on a job with customers.

Emilia followed and listened like usual. When they got to the place where she would be working she sighed happily, glad she didn't have to deal with customers. Things would have not ended well for mostly her. She liked that her uncle was thinking of her condition and let her start off small. Her eyes roamed as she searched for the courage to say thank you, when she finally did she looked up at him. "Thank you." She said fast and looked away before going and running her finger tips over things and looked up at him before smiling. Emilia thought she got it and just stared at him, hopefully taking the hint that she got it from there... or so she hoped once again. Asking him for help if she needed it was going to be a grand adventure.

Blake nodded a little. "No problem." He said and saw the smile, and assumed that she understood what she needed to do. "I will let you get started. I'll be just over there if you need me. Again, dont be afraid to ask if you need help, thats what im here for after all, to make sure you do well." He said and walked over to where he'd be working while he was training her. Normally he worked in a different part of the office, on bigger things, but for now he'd be doing things like Emilia was so he could focus on making sure that she was well trained. Her uncle had made it clear that she was to be excellent at her job, and that he was responsible for making sure that she was.

Emilia nodded and got to work. She knew the jist of things since she had been here before when she would visit family and she would watched the workers do their job, but now she was one of the people she watched and that made her smile. She had gotten somewhere, though it had been handed to her by her uncle. Mentally she sighed before singing in her head and slightly danced in her seat before stopping when she realized she needed help. Emilia just stared at her work and tried to talk herself into asking Blake for help, but that meant talking to him. She knew he said to ask him for help when she needed it, but people usually just said that as a way to end conversations and they didn't really mean it. So she sat there and looked up at him, working diligently before looking back down at her work, her hands played with her skirt as she searched for that courage.

Blake was woking away, looking up frm it here and there to see if Emilia was doing alright. She had been doing fine so far so it had been a minute since he had looked up, but when he finally did he saw her just sitting there, staring at her work. She looked stuck, so he got up and walked over. "Was there something you needed help with? You really can ask, I mean it." He said, looking down at her and then glancing over at what she'd done. "You're doing very well so far." He said.

Emilia looked up and saw him coming over. Oh good, he got my mental call to come over, but I still have to tell him what the fuck I am actually needing help with. She thought and watched him walk over to her and looked up. He was so tall. Jesus I am so glad I wore something that covers my goody goods. Man he smells nice too... watch he be gay. HA.. can't wait to write Ginger about this. She is going to be so jealous and then not jealous at all, her man is hot. He reminds me of Gay Jay... they both dress the same and hold themselves the same way. Aww maybe I can introduce them... and he has always wanted to come to the islands. I think I will write him tonight. She smiled, though she wasn't smiling at him. She nodded when he asked her if she needed help and sighed before grabbing what she needed work on, "Thank... you... uh..." She whispered and then pointed to a point on a file. "What...uhmm... what do I do?" She whispered and looked at the paper before looking back up at him.

Blake looked over while she seemed to be having some kind of internal monologue and just blinked. He looked back down and picked up the file that she had pointed at, when she finally did decide to start speaking. He set it back down. " Oh these. These are kind of a pain at first, troubled me too when I started." He said and then showed her what she needed to be doing with it. "Theyll get easier the more you do them." He said and looked back at the papers. " Was there anything else you needed help on? Seems like the stuff youve done was pretty easy for you." He said, he was honestly pretty impressed. They hadnt gotten a new person that even knew where to start since he started working there.

Emilis listened and watched, taking small notes on a pad so she could remember and not have to ask him or rather stare to get him to come over. He seemed like a nice guy, but this was so much interaction on one day already and it wasn't even lunch time yet. When he asked if there was anything else she needed help on she shook her head no. "Th-thanks." She whispered and watched him leave.

A few hours later she looked at her clock and mentally cheered that it was lunch time. She wanted to eat on the roof top since she hadn't done that in ages and it was one of her favorite places on the islands. She could see a good portion of the city and the lake island. Sometimes she could even see the dragons flying. She had just gotten her purse on her lap when she saw Blake walking over. For fucks sakes, please just let me eat, Gay Jay Twin. She thought, but smiled up at him.

It was just before lunch and Blake wanted to make sure that Emilia was doing alright with her work before they left for lunch. "Hey..How are things going over here?" He asked. "I just wanted to check in to see if there was anything you needed help with or had questions about before lunch, that was we can just get down to getting it done right when we come back." He said, looking down at her. He was honestly too ready to get to his lunch break, Coffee and a cigarette were seriously calling his name.

She didn't want to answer, "It... is going well..." She said and looked down at her purse. "No.. uh... no questions. Thanks.." She said and got up, smiling at him softly before hurrying out to the stairs that would lead to the roof. Once she got there she sighed happily. "Finally! For heaven's sake so many talkative people. Gay Jay is going to be so excited when I tell him about his twin. Now... food and song." She said and took the small radio out of her purse and started up the music. Then she placed her bag down and took off her shoes before grabbing her bottle of water and some saltines and got on the wall that outlined the rooftop. She hummed swayed as she ate and looked over everyone.

Blake nodded and watched her leave. He knew she wouldnt stand there and chit chat. Though he kind of expected some real awkward silence. There was very little of that though. He went up to the break room and got his coffee, and someone had brought cookies in, probably the girl from another department that always brought in treats. So he grabbed a cookie and as he normally did went up to the roof to have his lunch and smoke break.

Emilia started to let loose since it seemed no one was going to be coming up. One of her favorite songs came on and she decided to dance and sing along with it. She used her water bottle as a mic and danced.

"'Cause I don't need your love, I don't need your cash
I don't want your stupid shit, you can have it back
You keep saying that I'm crazy not to take you back
But if that makes me crazy, you're a psychopath
But if that makes me crazy, you're a psychopath"

Blake walked up the stairs to the roof and opened the door. Immediately he saw Emilia, singing and dancing up here all by herself. He was pretty amused by it so he didnt say anything until her song was done and over with. She might have been shy, but she was too cute for her own good. He let the door close behind him. "Letting loose on your break are you?" He asked, looking back over at her.

When the song was done she turned to go get another saltine when she saw and heard Blake say something about her letting loose on break and she went to step back, realizing too late that she was on the edge and that there was nothing behind her for her to step on. She felt her soul leave her as she closed her eyes and screamed.

Blake saw her turn and her foot get to close to the edge, he was already making his way over to tell her to get away from it when she started falling. He ran as fast as he could to catch her before she could fall. He managed to grab her hand, just before it would have been too far away to catch her and pulled her up quickly, instantly walking her away from the edge and letting go of her. "Jesus christ...that was too close....You gotta be more careful up here...Are you okay?" He asked. He knew she'd be shaken up, hell he was shaken up that she'd almost just plummeted to her death. But he wanted to make sure she didnt get hurt when he grabbed her wrist like he did to catch her.

Emilia felt a tight grip on her hand and was pulled up. She looked up at him, her eyes wide, and she looked over at the edge before back up at him. She wanted to tell him not to sneak the fuck up on people when they were on the edge like that but just nodded when he asked if she was okay. Emilia press her fingers to her lips and sighed, "I lost my water bottle." She whispered and looked up at him. "T-thank you... for... you know." She said softly. That was some pretty scary shit, but hot damn didn't she feel alive. Blake was pretty damn strong, but she was glad for that. Emilia stood there, her face red.

Blake sighed with relief that she was okay and then raised an eyebrow at the water bottle thing. "Well we can always get you another bottle of water..." He said and then nodded a little bit. "Dont mention it...Wasnt gonna stand there and watch you fall off the roof..." He said and watched her stand there, her face all red. "I'll uh...Let me go get you another water, since I made you lose it in the first place... Stay away from the edge..." He said and walked over, grabbing her crackers and handing them to her before going downstairs and grabbing her a bottle of water from the fridge before coming back up. "Now, you sure you are alright?"

She wanted to laugh at him saying he wasn't going to watch her fall off the building to her death and she was much grateful for his mercy. Emilia watched him go over to her crackers and then walk away. "So in charge." She said when he was gone. She sat where her stuff was and nibbling it. When he came back she took the water and nodded. Gay Jay was going to be so damn excited and jealous now even more so that he was a hero. She wondered if she would be the best woman when they got married. Oh man she was going to set them up so good. "Y-you... okay?" She whispered and looked at her feet.

Blake blinked down at the woman in front of him. "I am fine. Im not the one who almost fell off the roof. All I did was pull you up. Im just fine. I mean, my heart was definitely pounding. But im good." He said and then shook his head. They were a good bit through with their lunch break by now. "Well, im glad you're okay. Im gonna get to my lunch break then." He said and took his new coffee and cookie, since he'd dropped his to catch Emilia, and went and sat down a little ways away from her and lit up a cigarette to smoke before he got to eating and his coffee.

Emilia shrugged and watched him go sit away from her. She noted that he smoked, which was ick, but he looked good doing it. Leave it to the gay man to look good at killing himself. She thought to herself and looked down at her food. She wasn't hungry anymore and she stuffed everything in her bag quietly before looking up at the sky. What a way to bring in her first work day. Her uncle was going to have a field day. Then she thought about her having to unpack and groaned. She wonder how long she could just leave everything in boxes before someone said something... like her mother, but her mother was going to be gone for a few months for work so she should be good. Emilia swayed to the song being played before glancing over at Blake.
