CASSIDY VEGA

Date: Spring 15th, Year 3


Cassidy could easily say she couldn't afford to eat at Heaven's Treat. Everything was fairly expensive, and that was because it was owned by one of Westhaven's largest chocolate companies. However, she did like to come and study here when there were big tests on the horizon. Their Mint chocolate was only 100G, so it wasn't too hard for her to pay for one and grab a table.

Tonight was one of those nights, her Mint Chocolate sat tall on the table and she sifted through her textbook, trying to highlight certain paragraphs that seemed important. It wasn't math, but one of her other required classes. She already missed Theodore, having sent him to spent the night with his cousins at their house, something he clearly hadn't wanted, but it was something she had to do. If she was going to have a sustainable job one day, she needed to do things she didn't want to sometimes.

Just because she got a late start didn't mean she couldn't do it. She heard the bell above the door ring, but she didn't look up, too busy with the different facts and figures to really care who was coming in or out. Last time she had looked up someone had been carrying out a large cake, and now she didn't feel she had the time to be distracted by something like that twice.

Spring 15, Y3 | 7:03 PM
Everything was just a little bit too loud for Jonas' liking. He'd left his Jensen 541 at the university after parking for his jaunt to the library, eventually drifting from the land of books to the land of booze nearby. Jonas had done his part in vetting between the mature parties and the ones thrown by the cantankerous twenty year olds in the geology department. Soon, he was busy drinking and dancing with people he'd likely never see again. It was a good time.

Although, he may have drank a little too much. Driving home to the Valley that night would not be a good idea. It seemed like an excellent way to end up in a ditch. Nope, he'd be staying in Westhaven that night. Somewhere. Surely there would be a hotel along the way at some point. The night was still young!

And the night being young meant he needed some coffee for a second wind. The alcohol at this point was making him a touch sleepy. In a more personal party setting he'd have just passed out at the party, but with complete strangers in a place he wasn't familiar with... No, he'd need another place to stay that wasn't an alleyway or sidewalk.

Jonas stumbled his way through the cafe towards the barista. There were two things he noted when he approached the storefront: one, it was fancy. Two, it would have caffeine. Both observations made Jonas a fan.

Two minutes passed as he tried his best to make an order and pay the darn lady, and soon he was holding a nice travel mug of mocha coffee that would surely keep him alert and satisfied until he found a bed to crash on. Jonas turned towards the door, felt the world sway a little, and marched forward with a confidence that he likely should not have been feeling.

This was proven true when his foot caught on a chair someone was sitting on and he lurched forward without abandon. The lid on his mocha coffee snapped off, flying through the air, and the coffee within followed quickly. He watched helplessly, partially due to being drunk and partially due to it just happening too fast, as the coffee spilled all over a nearby table.

The table was covered in books and paper. The table was occupied. Jonas looked down. The table was occupied by someone about to be very angry at him.

"Uh." Jonas made no effort to apologize. Instead, he slowly but surely side-stepped away from the woman and towards the door. He was going to make a quick escape.

CASSIDY VEGA

Date: Spring 15th, Year 3


She had been so absorbed in her books that the person trying to keep himself walking in a straight line hadn't interested her. The sound of the pen scribbling against paper was a calming one for her, and those strokes continued still until the moment she felt the splatter of a hot liquid all over her table, flecks of it making their way onto her clothes as some after damage. But that wasn't what she was paying attention to, instead she was focused on the books in front of her now dripping with coffee. She could feel unshed tears well in her eyes as she lifted the page, part of it coming apart easily as the coffee seeped into the rest of her book.

That was 10,000G, easily wasted by one cup of coffee. It would have been fine if it was just the corner, but instead it had been the entire book stained by what most would refer to as liquid gold. Well, that had just cost her gold. She knew who it belonged to as well, considering he was trying to slink away like she wasn't going to notice. She threw the chair back, holding the book in her hand as she quickly cut him off before he could make his way out. "Excuse me for my language, but where the fuck do you think you're going?" She asked, holding the ruined book to her chest.

"Do you know how much this costs?" She asked, angry now as she held the book up to his face. Her eyes were still misty as if she didn't know if she was supposed to keep yelling or start crying. "I'm sorry, but I have a son, and if you think I'm supposed to take another 10,000G away from his care in order to get a new book because you're trying to skip out on responsibility, I'm afraid we have some different ideas." It was clear she wasn't going to get out of his way. "So sit down."

His escape had been foiled! The woman, predictably, had become angry. It was all a bit much, if Jonas was being honest. It was just a book! And some papers. Nothing important. But here this lady was, shouting into his face about her son and some ludicrous amount of money. As though he needed to know any of this information.

Jonas raised his hands innocently. "Hey, settle down, lady." He looked around at the rest of the cafe, felt judging eyes zeroed in on him, and then turned back to the girl.

"I'm just going to go now," he said lightly, making to shimmy his way around the angry woman and towards the door.

Maybe people who weren't in her position didn't understand what it was like to watch an expensive book become ruined so easily, and maybe they didn't understand what it was like to have a son at home who needed to eat. She didn't have enough money to replace it, and by now, she could tell that this moron wasn't going to do anything about it, despite being the one who had destroyed it.

And she was upset, with the way he took it so nonchalantly, the way that it was no big deal. Because it was a big deal, and anyone who was forced to work two jobs, including one on a Nightclub pole would have understood why this upset her so much. She didn't say anything as he shimmied past her, but if he thought he was getting off free, then he was wrong. She went back to the table, picking up her remaining books and the lukewarm hot chocolate before she too hurried out of the store.

She stopped in ran out in front of him, taking a breath before she threw the slightly warm beverage down the front of his shirt. Tears clearly misted the edges of her eyes, and she held his gaze for a long moment. "Now you can leave."

When the angry woman didn't stop him from leaving, Jonas internally cheered at his good fortune. A stumble here, a stumble there, and soon he had made his escape out of the cafe ad began lumbering down the sidewalk. He wasn't sure where he was going but anywhere would be better than here.

Then, a shape got in the way. His eyes took a moment to focus and as they did, they widened at the sight before him. There was the angry woman all over again. This time, she was armed and dangerous. His delayed reflexes did nothing to prevent her toss of her own drink, the liquid splashing over his chest and down his shirt.

He groaned at the inconvenience. Ready to cuss the lady out, he instead got a strong whiff of the liquid and felt his body churn in response. The stumbling, sudden commotion, and now such a strong, stale scent wafting up into his nose made for a perfect storm.

"Fuck yo-hrrrrrrrrrgghhhh--" Jonas couldn't finish his sentence as his body betrayed him, spewing up hours of booze and snacks in the lady's general direction.

He looked at her for a long time after she had thrown the drink on him, and she was worried when his words lurched and she moved backwards, however not quick enough so that the mixture of gross booze and unidentifiable food landed on her shoes. She stared at it for a moment, wordlessly, swallowing a breath and trying not to give him that satisfaction of tears.

Instead, she chucked the destroyed book heavily at his chest and turned, hastily walking away. Now she remembered why she hated drinking.

Jonas made to apologize to the angry lady but was interrupted by yet another assault, this time the remnants of the woman's book. The spine hit his chest hard but the impact was muffled by the wet sheets. It made a splat noise as it slid off his shirt and then plopped down onto the pavement.

Well, this he would not stand for. No sir. He was just trying to be on his way and this woman wasn't letting him. Now she was turning away to make her own escape!

Jonas looked down at the mostly empty cup he was still carrying from inside the cafe and frowned. The drink had been ruined at this point. Who cares? He focused enough to stop his swaying and then heaved the cup at the back of the woman's head.

She felt the cup hit the back of her head. It wasn't like it hurt, but it was annoying. She held her breath. He was a moron, a drunk moron. So she would let it be. It took a lot of strength to do so, but she would have rather walked away than have anything else thrown at her or on her tonight, she was getting really tired of this really quickly.

She needed to pick up her son, and hopefully this guy be picking himself up off the floor somewhere tomorrow morning.
