PostSubject: In need of directions   Wed Oct 13, 2010 8:46 pm

Kuna had never set foot into Gothstone before, and he could see why. The place was pretty much covered in black. They said that Gothstone was the place of the socially challenged, and it lived up too that moniker. *Goths everywhere.* He thought to himself as he kept a brisk pace. The blond was not particularly worried about getting mugged in this part of town since the lesson he had been through with Izuya and the marks the wolves had left on his body. He gave a slight grimace at the images that came to his mind of the horrifying experiences, even if he had unlocked his magical potential he did not want to go through that again. That incident was part of the reason he had come too this part of the town, there was an antique shop that he heard from going too the gun range at Gunshyne Bastion carried the legal types of firearms, so he figured he would check out what kind of stock they would have. The problem he was having is that he didn't know where the shop was located at all.

He came to a full stop at one of the corners of the little self contained community, and looked to check his bearings. "Where is that Kurofuno shop?" He rubbed his chin and his eyes alighted upon a cafe which should provide him directions. Kuna quickly crossed the street and pulled open the steel and glass framed door, and he quickly approached one of the barista's working there. "Excuse me do you know where the Kurofuno antique shop is?"

I was working behind the counter today, wearing a white skirt with a pink bodice and a white shirt. Much like the normal gothic attire, but white instead of black. As I turned to take the next customer's order I noticed the guy walking up, I gave my best adorable smile and ask him, "What can I do for you today?" It was one of those cute closed eyes and dimple showing smiles, that tended to have the 'that's so cute' from people. When he asked for his directions, I thought about it for a minute and spoke again, "It's down the street, third light take a left, and it's on the next corner. But he's not open right this moment. It'll be about an hour. Can I get you some coffee, tea, or anything to eat while you wait?"

Kuna would give a nod of his head. He was disappointed in hearing that it was not opened meaning he would have some time to kill. He did take an appreciative once over the waitress's looks. "Thank you for the information, and I will take a cappuccino." He would say as he went too a small table and took a seat. His eyes immediately scanned the cafe which seemed to be a mix of the gothic subculture and the more bright in comparison normal Sai city culture. "Interesting dichotomy." He would say mostly to himself while he folded his hands together on the table. Kuna closed his eyes and just listened too the sounds of coffee being made.

I nod and tell him the price as I start grinding the beans. The smell of the crushed beans made me smile. I loved that smell, freshly ground expresso beans. It was a nice aroma. Picking up the metal cup that was use to heat the milk, I place it under the spout and press the button. We had a set of nice thermometers in these cups that let us know when it got to the right temperature. Tilting the cup allowed for the foam to form on the top of the milk. clicking the button again, I set it on the counter, grabbing a cup, I pour the hot water from the machine over the expresson beans and let the shot run into the cup. Next I poured a little of the steamed milk into the cup and grabbed a spoon. Heaping the foam onto the top of the steamed milk, I place the cup on a saucer, the saucer on a tray, and a spoon on the saucer. It wasn't long before I stood in front of him with his order. I smiled politely and set the tray in front of him. The aroma of the coffee was rich and dark, meaning I had made a damn good cappuccino. "there you go sir, can I get you anything else? I'm sorry for your wait. BUt I didn't want you to have to walk all that way just to find out it was closed at the moment."

His eyes snapped open and they drifted towards the cup of coffee. He gave a soft smile towards the girl. "If you have some biscoti that would be nice as well." Kuna would say softly as he drew the cup to himself and took a small sip of it. "I would have looked up the time, but I was in a rush for time. I am glad that I know that I have to wait though." He would say as she brought him his snack. "I must compliment on your exquisite craftsmanship. I haven't had much coffee before, but this tastes really good." He would say taking out a enough to cover the biscoti and drink with enough for a generous tip as well. "Tell me what's the secret you use to make such good coffee?" Kuna asked.

With a cute little bow, I am off to the counter where I get out one of those nice little hard bread things called Biscoti. I was not big on coffee, didn't drink it much, but I loved the smell. I came back and set it on the saucer for him. Then with that same smile I answer his question, "Since it is a secret recipe, I don't think the boss would like me spilling the beans about it." There was humor and teasing in my voice as I spoke to him. Then when I realized the unintended pun, my hand came up to the back of my neck in clear anime fashion when embarrassed and I rubbed while chuckling. "Sorry about that, it was kinda corny." My hand dropped and I offered him another smile. If one could naturally see spirits, I would be a strange sight. One could just barely make out gauzy like wings behind me. But normal people could not see them. "Seriously though, there is no secret. I just like making coffee. It's kinda like writing a song. Everything has to harmonize and fit together. But instead of making the symphony for the ear, you are translating for the tongue." Then I blushed and shook my head. "That was kinda corny too. Almost as bad as a coffee pun while talking about coffee in a coffee shop. By the way, my name is Kameko, but most people just call me Kame." I reached up and tucked my white hair behind an ear in a nervous gesture.

"Yes, that was quite a corny joke, almost could have died from it." He would say giving a little smile, which he kept on once he perceived the little wings that sprouted from her back. Kuna scratched his chin. He knew a few things about spirits and spiritual matters, but he was still rather a novice when he came to all of this. She seemed human enough for him, so he put it into the back of his mind. "That, I would say is more sappy then corny, but it is good to hear of such dedication too this." He would take another sip of his coffee. "I've heard that Kurofuno shop has quite a lot of rare and valuable antiques, have you been there before?" He asked hoping he could get a guide through it.

"yes, I've been there a few times. There is all sorts of things in that shop that are rather unique. Some of the things in there are really old, and some are really useful. I wish I had more time to go browse through that shop. But as you can see.. we are so busy here" There really wasn't much going on around them, the morning crowd had ceased and the only thing left was to wait for the lunch crowd but my relief would be in shortly. I glanced to the door and smiled. "I get off soon. Maybe I can sneak in there on the way home and take another browse. I love trying to figure out what some of his items do." I was genuine to say the least, some people found that refreshing about me. I glanced back at him and smiled. "hey, do I know you from somewhere, because you look familar." Maybe we had gone to the same school. I was out, but not very long ago. So maybe I had seen him in the halls or something.

Kuna had just been looking to make some conversation, but hadn't thought he would get picked up by the girl. "I would assume so since this place serves such good coffee." He would say as he took another sip and enjoyed the rich aroma. She then shot off a question of her own at him, and this time he would play with her a bit. "I do go too Saichuugai high school, finishing up my classes there before heading to the university. You do look familiar though." He brought up his forefinger and tapped it against his chin. "You were one of the popular girls weren't you? I can tell from how pretty you are, and if you weren't then it is a tragedy. The name is Inoue Kuna." He would say picking up the hard bread and taking a quick bite of it while watching her reaction.

I blushed and wondered at how I was ending up with all of these people saying I was pretty. It always made me blush. Perhaps I was just a late bloomer. When he mentions the high school. "I went there for a little while, but I had to drop out. My mother was in the hospital and needed a lot of help." My face got sad for a moment. "But that's all over now. I'm thinking about trying to get more than just my GED and actually going for a major. But it costs so much money." I sighed and waved as another customer got up to leave. Another guy comes in and waves to me as he makes his way into the back. "I wasn't popular but I hung out with Seiki and Natsuki. Natsuki liked to use me as a dress up doll. That's how all this" I motioned to my outfit "Got started here in the first place. But she is my best friend." Seiki had been a jock so maybe the guy knew of him. "Did you want to walk over to shop together? that was my boss. So I'll be off in a few minutes."

He kept a little half smile on his face at seeing her blush. It seemed she was quite shy about it or just hadn't got enough compliment about her looks. "Its a shame that such unfortunate circumstances forced you out of higher education opportunities, and I hope your mother got better." He would interject while listening to the rest of what she said. "You should look into getting financial aid and various grants. It won't completely eliminate the cost of going back to school, but it would alleviate a large portion of it" He would stand at this time and fish into his pocket pulling out ten dollar note and setting it onto the table. "I'd love to." He would say giving her a genuine smile.

"Good I have to go clock out. I'll be right back" I turned and started to walk towards the back door that said, employees only. After about two steps I turn to look at him, a haunted expression on my face. "No she didn't. But that was over a year ago" Then I gave him a very simple smile and walked off. My hand came out and pushed on the door to the office. Entering the office I let the door close behind me as I looked at the boss. He gave me a short whistle and I looked at him for a moment. Clocking out at the time punch, I hand him my card. "I'm off, see ya tomorrow" Then I pass by him and into the employee restroom to change. When I returned to Kuna, I was wearing a simple white blouse and a pink skirt. Normal clothes compared to the get up I had been wearing. The bright cheery smile was back on my face as was the twinkle in my eyes. "Alright, ready to go?" I carried a small backpack as I shifted from foot to foot waiting for his answer.

Kuna leered back at having said something that had provoked such a response from the girl, but she seemed to cheer up quickly enough. He gave her a little smile once she came out of the changing room in more casual clothes. Kuna let himself have a moment to admire her figure, and he let her know it as his eyes drifted from her feet and to her eyes. "I have to say that you look good in anything you wear." He would walk over and open the door for her to exit first "Ladies first." He said with a little gentlemanly bow, and he would quickly come to her side. "So, do you always work here at Moonbucks, or do you have another part time gig?" He asked her while letting her lead the way too the Kurofuno shop.

I walked out of the door as he opened it after blushing at his comment. “Thank you. And I moonlight as a singer sometimes. It is my passion in life. “ I smiled as I looped my arm in his and continued to walk down the street towards the direction indicated. We would reach the shop when my cell phone would ring and I would flip it open. Hearing the other voice on the line, I am heard to say, “Oh. You mean you can’t?” Then a pause followed by “I’ll be right there, is she ok?” After another pause I thanked the person on the phone and closed it. “I am so sorry. I’ve have to get back to the apartment, apparently one of my roommates needs to go to the hospital. Although how one gets a their hand stuck in a paint can. I will never know.” I chuckled , it made a funny picture. “What’s worse is that our other roommate tried to cut the paint can off with a can opener which broke and popped him in the head. So they both may be visiting the ER. Perhaps I can see you again sometime. I’m usually the opener for the shop.” After giving him time to answer, I would be off in the other direction waving and saying, “It was nice meeting you.
