the Coffee shop

Your character finds themselves in a coffee shop:

maybe your character works as a barista
maybe they're just unwinding after a long day at work
getting their caffeine fix in the morning
maybe they're on a date

whatever the reason; everyone's welcome.

Lindsey | Lucky Number Slevin | OTA

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-08-29 01:58 am (UTC)(link)
[ Sitting at a table, doing the crossword over her lunch break. ]
nakamura_sensei: (0.4)

Alright if I tag you?

[personal profile] nakamura_sensei 2014-08-29 03:13 am (UTC)(link)
Sorry to bother you - could you pass me a napkin? I spilled some cake.

[ She says this while clutching her book-- chemistry, it looks like-- in an arm. ]
deceptivelytall: ([Yeah] Shines like justice)


[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-08-29 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
Oh - yeah, just give me a second.

[ She finishes the last line on the E, letting her pen fall between the pages as she sets the puzzle book aside.

There's a napkin dispenser towards the end of the table, and she grabs a couple to pass over. ]
nakamura_sensei: (1.1)


[personal profile] nakamura_sensei 2014-08-29 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
Thanks, these will help, [ she says as she takes them.

She swings around to wipe up said spill on a seat. That cost me. She reflects a moment. I'll buy another on the way home.

She settles down again to study, rubbing at an earring. ]
deceptivelytall: ([Confuzzled] Shirt skirt - long jacket)

G2G, will pick this up tomorrow

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-08-29 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
You're welcome. [ Smiling slightly, she starts to turn back to her crossword, but a flash of color catches her eye. ]

Are they really selling cakes with electric blue icing?

nakamura_sensei: (0.1)

Okay! See you later / sleep well~

[personal profile] nakamura_sensei 2014-08-29 04:43 am (UTC)(link)
[ She starts, her thoughts dragged away from a sidenote about finding superconductors at room temperature. Is she criticizing my taste in cake?

Nakamura gives Lindsey an uncertain look. ] Yes, up at the front. [ She doesn't ask 'why', though it's written all over her face. ] Blueberry something or other.

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-08-29 12:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[ She's judging, but not Nakamura's cake choice, that's just personal preference, more the bakeries aesthetic sense. ]

It stains pretty much anything, the icing. I remember finding them on industrial cleaning gloves once.

And that was after they'd been properly cleaned and everything.

[ Okay, so the colors had been rather faint by the time it had gotten to her, but it was still all sorts of dumbfounded.

Tucking the book away, she glances up towards the counter at the back of the store, wondering just what else the bakery was selling today. ]

It was good, right?

nakamura_sensei: (0.7)

[personal profile] nakamura_sensei 2014-08-30 01:16 am (UTC)(link)
[ She listens, nodding once in apparent sympathy. ] That sounds bothersome. I'll add icing to the list of things not to mix for school. [ Not that she would mind, if someone else was in charge of cleaning it up. ]

[ Considering she only managed to get one bite out of it before it decided to up and die on her... ]

More or less. It was freshly made. [ ... It was also the only thing they had out. Just her luck. ] They might have something else now.
deceptivelytall: ([Yeah] Shines like justice)

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-08-30 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
More for the cleaners than me. It wasn't like anyone would be using the equipment afterward.

[ Freshly made is not what she would consider the biggest selling point of a pastry, though if it was the start of another course of baked goods, she just might be able to find something which would suit her. ]

Oh, then I should definitely go check it out. Hey, since you lost your cake, do you want anything?
nakamura_sensei: (my surprise is shown)

[personal profile] nakamura_sensei 2014-08-30 02:48 am (UTC)(link)
[ Disposable equipment? Well, having the good sense to throw away equipment when you no longer need it is a habit worth getting into. ]

Eh? Ah, maybe I should- [ For her, the question seems out of the blue. ] I wouldn't mind another slice. [ And since she doesn't want to owe anyone anything... ] I'll come with you.
deceptivelytall: ([Neutral] Touring the facility)

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-08-30 11:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Disposable, but not for the reasons she would think. It's not like someone wants to use items which belonged to a corpse.

Call it a whim, the invitation of cake. It's a great way to meet people, you know, those who aren't in her line of work. ]

Yeah, sure. You can get another of the blueberry surprise, or something else, and I'll just have to see what else they have. Though I am in the mood for something less sweet.

[ Being somewhat anti-social Nakamura typically saw invitations as something bothersome. ]

[ She leaves her book at the table, as it's a bit heavy to lug around. ]

Yes, this time I think I'll get something lighter.

[ She inches around a table she gets too close to by accident, uttering an apology. She stops beyond it and looks at the selection on display. She turns to Lindsey. ]

You can go first.
deceptivelytall: ([Work] Gets up early)

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-08-31 05:13 pm (UTC)(link)
[ There's a vanilla bean cake that looks promising, with buttercream on top, not icing, so that's what she orders.

She steps off to the side as she waits for Nakamura. ]
nakamura_sensei: (0.8)

[personal profile] nakamura_sensei 2014-09-01 12:49 am (UTC)(link)
[ Bean cake - looks good. Wait, what's this?

The way they put together that combo of cherry and cream is cute.
She feels her cheeks burn. I think I'll order something else. ]

[ She settles for a scone and another cup of coffee. She feels a bit of pressure when she realises Lindsey is still there. ] Thanks for waiting.
deceptivelytall: ([Buzz] Long jacket)

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-09-01 12:56 am (UTC)(link)
I did invite you along, so I wouldn't just abandon you up here, [ she says brightly, the words tumbling out at speed. ]

Unless it was rush hour and seats become prime real estate. [ She adds. ] And then, that's so that we'll still have a seat after.

[ She tucks a napkin from the dispenser under her plate before heading back to where they were before.

A little bit of extra sugar after lunch is just the thing. ]

nakamura_sensei: (0.7)

[personal profile] nakamura_sensei 2014-09-01 02:02 am (UTC)(link)
Oh. [ I suppose this is what they call 'being a decent person'. ] Um, thanks.

Well, I don't bother with this place when it's packed. It's easier to stop by the store and grab something to take home.

[ As a snack, this scone is a lot lighter than what I intended to get... she thinks as she sits down. I guess I'll get some jam or something. ]

I'll be right back.
deceptivelytall: (Default)

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-09-01 02:12 am (UTC)(link)
It's a matter of preference, waiting in line can be worth it for certain baked goods or specialty coffee.

[ Nodding, she takes her seat again, pushing aside the empty dishware from earlier. ]
nakamura_sensei: (0.4)

[personal profile] nakamura_sensei 2014-09-01 02:43 am (UTC)(link)
[ Lindsey has her on the coffee. ] A frappucino is nice now and then. [ I can't make that in a lab... Or can I?


[ Uh oh, you've just given a graduate fresh out of post-secondary a new idea for a project! ]

[ She comes back with packs of jam she pilfered from the area with the napkin dispenser. ] How's the cake?
deceptivelytall: ([Winter] Cut through red tape)

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-09-01 02:58 am (UTC)(link)
[ Smiles back up at her, setting her fork down at the edge of the plate. She's only just started, eating the cream and the cake separately. ]

Not bad, the flavor is really strong.
nakamura_sensei: (1.3)

[personal profile] nakamura_sensei 2014-09-01 03:28 am (UTC)(link)
[ She's so preoccupied with her thoughts that she actually asks out loud: ] Which part? The bean or the vanilla?

[ The Principal and Vice-Principal might not like me using school resources to make frappucinos. Unless it's for the festival? Still, it's going to cut into the time I can spend pursuing Shinonome...

Sorry, Lindsey, she's going to be like this for a while. ]

[ Uh. I forgot the knife.

Why me?
Wordlessly, Nakamura goes back to where the napkins are. ]
deceptivelytall: ([Look away] Know's what's best)

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-09-01 02:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Both, it's not like there's much to distinguish one from the other.

[ She doesn't kick her heels against the metal bars holding up the chair, though it would be easy to.

She notices that Nakamura isn't really paying attention, and just start resumes her crossword, muttering the clues and possible answers to herself. Some things, like 'snack cookie, 4 letters' are obvious - it's always oreo. ]
nakamura_sensei: (1.1)

[personal profile] nakamura_sensei 2014-09-03 10:48 am (UTC)(link)
[ Meanwhile, Nakamura's taken to drawing on the blank back pages of her chemistry text. That scone of hers is only half-eaten. ]

[ She sighs, falling back in her seat. She rubs at her temple. ] The hardest part will probably be borrowing the blender. Someone's going to be watching...
deceptivelytall: ([Confuzzled] Shirt skirt - long jacket)

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-09-03 01:20 pm (UTC)(link)
[ She debates whether or not to ask, because it's not like she's being spoken to. It's just thinking aloud...

still the mention of a blender is pretty out there. ]

Um, blender?
nakamura_sensei: (1.2)

[personal profile] nakamura_sensei 2014-09-04 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
[ Welp!! ]

A lab assignment! The students are starting on weather soon so I thought maybe showing, um, slush would... would...

[ Her drawings are clearly labelled otherwise. ]
deceptivelytall: ([Hand talk] Sharp as a tack)

[personal profile] deceptivelytall 2014-09-04 02:27 am (UTC)(link)
[ Lindsey hasn't looked yet. ]

You teach! That's neat! And interesting, if that's the sort of work that interests you. I mean, kids, presenting information in front of a crowd of people, [ waves a hand ] not the easiest thing to do.
