Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, has started! We also have our previous plot's part two running next to it for Azores! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our older plot, Azores, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Azores plot is Grantus and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Philemon.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

PostSubject: Flowering Nectar [Calabus]   Mon Jun 20, 2016 4:23 pm



The Heartfelt Bakery sat within the shopping district of Little Tokyo. An oriental exterior with a traditional bakery interior. It was widely popular within Little Tokyo and its fame had even reached out into other reaches of Endymion. A budding business famous for its sweets and baked goods and its wonderful atmosphere and customer service.

A boy sat at the cash register in the back of the store, a smile on his face as he looked through a magazine. He was young, energetic, and seemingly aloof to the rest of the world. He loved seeing the new trends in clothing and what could be found easily online. After all, he was quite fashionable himself.



Regardless, the shop was welcoming and open. The sweet scents coming from within the shop enticing people to come in. It was a slow afternoon though, as they often times were for a bakery. But the boy didn't mind, it gave him time to find out what to spend his money on, you know! A pursuit Proxy quite often didn't agree with...

"You should really spend your time more productively... Possibly trying to find out more about the cadets and the terrorists." his shadow would say bored as she stared at the primitive fashion. She never understood human fashion. But, alas, this boy was a fashionable too a fault, it seemed.

"But I want to look nice. Plus, researching anything would make us look suspicious... I do not want to do anything different." the boy would say back to the shadow via his mind. The two honestly never seemed to agree on anything aside from staying safe and away from the government and terrorists alike. It was dangerous to try and research anything with powers... They probably had trackers or scent thingies or something...

Food. That was all that had to be promised to get a particularly moody being to perk up after a morning of chaos at the inn. Maybe Calabus felt bad for her overworked staff or maybe the owner was just feeling generous today as she had granted most of her staff a half day so they could actually spin their time with their family and friends rather than slave away behind stoves, or shuffle along to obey a customer’s whim; however, instead of actually leaving, the staff would take their usual breaks bringing back with them kids or family members not lounge around, but to put them to work too! While Calabus had at first protested against this and told them they should be relaxing rather than working, the returning staff had told her that this was their way of relaxing. And to top it off they refused extra pay or allowing her to pay for the extra hands!

The gesture was so heart-warming that Calabus could’ve snuggled all them with so much love and appreciation, but being professional she did not. Instead, she changed that joy into something she shared with everyone around. Everything from pampering guest to the cooking was on par today, making the inn run smoothly even when people came rushing in earlier that day.

It had taken a good while for the inn to finally settle into the natural and healthy hum of business and happiness. It was during this slow down that Calabus decided to let her staff take care of the inn for a bit and actually get out into the world for a change. She had planned to do her own thing, but then thinking again decided to reward Sphinx for actually playing nice for so long.

It had been like pulling teeth to get him to leave the receptionist' desk to the chef’s granddaughter, something the woman found laughable considering the other complained so much about the job; however, she when she promised to buy him whatever food he wanted, the resistance ended and he casually followed her out of the inn. But now?

Calabus’s dark colored eyes would shift to Sphinx who walked slightly ahead of her stopping here and there to check out stores or food booths within the Little Tokyo strip. She let him do what he wanted, amused how much like a kid he could be sometimes as he drifted about. It wasn’t often he was treated to such outings, so she let him enjoy it while he could.

They would move down the roads drifting about until Sphinx stopped in front of an oriental style store that seemed to be  bakery. Calabus thought the other was window shopping, but found herself stopping a few steps pass the other who had been staring at a cake in the window. As she paused, she very distinctly heard the door open. Turning, she saw Sphinx actually entering the shop.

Amused, she would turn back and follow him deciding to step off to the side and simply watch as the young man took it all in. The sights and smells were something different for him, weren’t they? Sure he was used being around food and even a noisy kitchen, but a specialty shop such as bakery with so many sweets at his disposal? No. He had yet to be introduced to such a place, but now that he was in it, she wondered if he would ever come out of the place.

She saw the way he looked around the place before eyeing the many displays of sweets and breads the shelves. Yeah, they were in trouble, but even so Calabus did not rush him as she drifted to a corner of the store to browse.

Meanwhile, Sphinx would make a beeline for the counter display, leaning over to gaze at the pastries behind the glass with almost glittering mismatched eyes. While it was true the young man's skin tone was so pale he seemed sickly that excited energy that floated off of him was largely defying that assumption as he continued to look between the tasty treats on display finally getting stuck between cheese cake and crème brulee. Looking from one to another, his smile would fade and turn into a distressed expression as he couldn’t make up his mind on which to get first.

Upset, he would turn to Calabus for help…only to find she was side tracked by something on a shelf. Not good. What was he going to –Oro?

A small figure behind the counter caught his eye causing him to turn the strange pair eyes he had back to the other. It was a kid reading some sort of magazine and wearing hood over his head. The kid appeared young enough though, so maybe he could help?

With no one else to turn to Sphinx would open his mouth to say something been shut it again as pale hands rested on the counter and his multicolor nails began to click the counter nervously as he studied the other. On one hand, he was at a loss what to say to the kid, but on the other, he wonder if it was rude to interrupt the other while he was reading. So staying quiet for the moment, he would just watch the other with an intense gaze waiting for the other to look up at him before asking his question...

This is why we don't come to bakerys...:

The boy really hadn't paid the customers much mind. Even with the jingling of the bell right next to the door, he just wanted to see all the new fashion choices introduced this month! It was really important, after all. With a nod of his head the boy would turn the page, Proxy eventually interrupting the child's thoughts though.

"Vassal Zavie, a customer is looking at you most eagerly..." Proxy's smooth and cold voice would ring within the boy's mind. He'd blink and look up from his magazine, looking at the boy before sitting upright and stammering out an introduction. Oops... Too engrossed in his magazine it seemed.



"A-Ah! I am so sorry, sir! W-Welcome to the Heartfelt Bakery! H-How may I be of service?"

The boy would say with an earnest look, ready to hear what the child had to say. He really couldn't believe he had ignored him so completely! How awful of him... Oh well, he could only do better from here, right?

Calabus kneeled down, the short shelf blocking her from view as she began scanning the lower shelves of their goods. Man. No matter where she looked everything present looked delicious. Oh and look at that price! Was this for real? It looked like the woman would be distracted by the sweets on the shelf a bit longer.

Meanwhile Sphinx would remain at the counter, waiting with barely held back eagerness as his strange eyes looked at the child across from him. At first, he simply waited lightly drumming his neon green nails on the counter; however, the more he was ignored the more that eagerness melted and began to turn into something foul.... Or at least it would've turned out that way if he hadn't been distracted by observing the boy. While the hood on the kid hid some features it did not hide his face or how cute he looked reading that magazine. More amused than upset, the clicking would stop as the young man leaned slightly on the counter, his age and looks shifting slightly to make him appear to be maybe a year or so older than the other.

Why did this happen? Two reasons really. First off the kid was too into his magazine to notice this shift and secondly what is the best way to become appeal to others if not appearing to be around their age? Regardless of this, he would remain leaned against the counter his head in his hands as he observed the other.

So when the boy did decide to look up, he would find the other simply watching him with an amused smirk. The smirk only grew a bit more at the flustered display. Now wasn't this turning out to be entertaining? Even so, the young man would remain non-hostile as he remained leaned against the counter with that smirk.

"Oh. You don't need to apologize, you made up the neglect for simply being cute. You know if you really want to continue reading that magazine, you can. I can wait and perhaps by time you finish, I can make up my mind if I want the cheesecake or the crème brulee. Though that might be hard if I can't take my eyes off of you," he would say his tone casual as he gave the other a wink, his reddish color eye vanishing and reappearing with the action.

Meanwhile Calabus hearing voices, stood up and looked over at the counter; however, seeing what was happening she would smirk lightly to herself as she moved a bit closer to the low shelf to simply watch this. Heh. So Sphinx decided to play? She wondered what the kid did to get this sort of attention. Hoping this was going to be an entertaining affair, she would keep herself quiet as she watched to see what the other would do with this sort of play. She wouldn't interfere unless things got bad.

"Zavie, caution. Do not do anything strange whatsoever. Pull your hood down slightly. This is not a human."

The voice of the ever watchful shadow within the boy's head hissed out, her eyes faintly resonating within the bead chain tied into the boy's hair. While the boy may have been distracted, the shadow was aware of everything that happened around him. His keen senses were a gift, but he rarely used them to their pin point precision. Something the shadow noted as soon as she awoke and had been using ever sense. This creature... It had changed forms right in front of a set of eyes he was clueless about. Check mate.

The boy did as he was instructed, gently pulling his hood down a little with a shy look on his face and a small blush. The person seemed nice enough, but... If he really changed appearances he could be a demon. And without someone to help fight him, he was quite frankly defenseless against one with his current skills. This was quite bad, in all honesty... But, he'd bury the fear deep down inside of him. Now wasn't the time to be afraid, right?

"Good good... Stay calm. Do not delve into your fear yet. Use it to your advantage later. Right now, put on a show that no one can see past. A veil of lies and false emotions that convinces even you." the shadow would silently instruct. In all honesty, this was a really good test for the boy to practice his manipulation skills. While he was a good liar, he still had trouble keeping up his poker face. What better time than now to test it out?

"C-Cute...? Are you flirting with me? I have never been flirted with, you know." the boy would say with a now more so confused look. When it came to romantic interactions, he was quite frankly clueless about them. The boy was still rather young and had no real want to love or to be loved by anyone other than his family and friends. To go further than that was foreign to him. The words he knew that correlated with love didn't mean much to him.

"If you are having trouble choosing, I would suggest the cheese cake. I made it my self this morning! It is quite good." the boy would say with a smile and nod of his head. The shadow would silently praise him, her eyes directed on the possible demon as if her life depended on it. Except, there was a second figure in the store. Ears, ears trained on the noise and eyes trained on the immediate threat. Perfect analysis of the situation.

It was often a question of just how aware the creature that posed itself as a human was about the situation around him. While it was true the creature had no way of actually knowing that there were was indeed four of them in this store, he did take note after shifting his form that a strange energy coming from somewhere on the boy, but where the energy came from was unknown. Even so the energy had the creature watching the boy even more carefully, strange color eyes narrowing slightly with the seemingly pleased smile on his face as the other decided to play shy and cute.

Oho! And look! Look! He is even blushing now. How delightful! ~ <3
The demon would think to itself quiet amused at the situation despite the odd energy that surrounded the boy. Maybe something protected him or perhaps the boy was himself something different and thus why he sought to keep that hood of his on. It was hard to say, but the creature didn’t seem to mind the oddness as the smile became a Cheshire like grin.

“Yes. Though cute is the wrong word. I think adorable is more appropriate,” the other would say as the young man seemed to give the kid a look of affection. Kind of odd considering they were strangers and perhaps the strong approach would make the creature seem desperate or cocky for those in the know of about these sort of things; however, to make that assumption would be a grave error. His strong approach was designed just to see what people did when approached like this. And this kid was already playing right into his trap. Not only was the first reaction cute enough, but now he openly admitted he had never been flirted with before?

The young man would chuckle as he continued to watch the other.

“Naturally I am and who wouldn't with your looks. As for this being a first time for you, well. That doesn’t matter as I don’t see a problem with that. I can deal with a novice too,” he would say his voice smooth and as charming as it could be despite that Cheshire grin. He was getting a kick out of the other's confusion, so he wandered just how far he could get before getting into trouble. Hmm? Shall we continue to push then? Hehe. Yes. Yes. He believed he would.

If the boy thought he could be swayed by food now that he had proven himself a source of entertainment for the creature, he would be sadly mistaken. Even when being given a suggestion on the choice issue from before, the creature would continue to observe him with that smirk.

“Mmm. Sounds tasty and more so now that you say it was made by you. Would you let me feed some of it to you if I bought one?” the creature would ask watching the other carefully to see just how well a novice could play this game. Could he swim or would the approach drown him? He was eager to see.

Meanwhile Calabus would continue to simply watch for now as she shook her head lightly at the show. Geez. She really couldn’t take Sphinx anywhere without him doing something to make things rather strange for the other party. Welp as long as no hostility was being tossed around, She supposed it was okay not to stop them from chatting…

The boy was... Now more confused than scared. Flirting and then offering to feed him food? If this was really a demon, what was his means of... Devouring him? With a confused smile, the boy would continue on, Proxy still staying silent and weary. What was the point of this? Was this the pinnacle of demons? Cat knights and frog girls and... Flirts? To think she wished to become one...

"Adorable? Well, I have been called that before." the boy would say with a simple nod of his head. What exactly was the point of flirting? To the boy, it seemed more like idle compliments that didn't really lead to anything... Maybe he was trying to get a discount? Hm...

"Huh? Feed me? But why would you feed me my own food? I know what it tastes like, so I can already vouch for the flavor!" the boy would say with a gentle nod of his head, a happy smile on his face. He didn't really get the purpose behind these things... But, he'd take them with a stride of inner confusion and an oblivious nature that was shining more and more the further this conversation went.

"How come you are flirting with me though? Oh, could you describe what flirting even means to me? I do not quite understand its purpose..." the boy would say with a gentle crossing of his arms. This was all so very confusing... At least Proxy was there in case things went bad.
