Finally! Chapter 2 is finished! Told ya it'd be longer! I own nothing except for a few characters who are making an appearance. Enjoy!
My caramel eyes opened, squinting as the sunlight assaulted them. After taking a few minute to adjust to the light, I got up and made my bed. I grabbed a towel and a change of clothes and headed into the bathroom connected to my room. I set the water for a somewhat hot temperature, changed out of my white t-shirt and grey sweatpants, and got in, relaxing as the water ran down my spine and my wings.
You may think getting your wings wet isn't a good idea, and yeah, it's not. But sometimes it's fine, because the water cleans out dirt and whatnot from the feathers. It's only bad when you have to make a quick escape.
I finished my shower and got out. After drying myself off, I changed into a white button up shirt and indigo jeans. I brushed my hair, making sure it was perfect, and left the hotel. The time was about 7:30. I had time to grab a quick breakfast before work.
I walked to the local café. A waitress with shoulder length brown hair, brown eyes and pale skin greeted me. "Welcome, Light. The usual?"
"Yes, please." This was a routine I was used to. I sat at a table near the corner and stared outside until she brought me my usual order-black coffee and a plain blueberry muffin. I finished it, paid, left a tip and walked out. I then walked into an alley and spread my wings, taking off. I always flew high enough that I wouldn't be seen by any humans, yet low enough that i wouldn't be in the clouds. After a few moments of the blissful flying, I landed in an alley, folded my wings and entered the café on the other side of the city, where I work.
My boss was a woman with waist length platinum blonde hair, sky blue eyes and pale skin. She wore a black tight shirt and matching pants underneath a dark blue coat that reached her knees and black boots. Her hair was always in a low ponytail. I've never seen the actual owner of the café.
"Welcome, Light," she said, tossing a white apron to me, "You know what to do."
I put the apron on and grabbed a notepad. "Of course."
Now, why am I working in a café? Well, with my hunt for Kira taking up most of my time, I don't have the time for a job like a detective, which was what I wanted to be before my death. Plus, if I pose as a regular human, the chances of Kira not detecting my presence in the human world are more likely.
For a while, things went as normal. Things started going south when I went to attend to a young man.
The first thing I noticed about him was the way he sat-legs pulled to his chest and feet on the chair. The next thing I noticed was his appearance.
Messy black hair, pale skin, dark eyes with bags underneath, indicates a lack of sleep. He wore a wrinkled white shirt and indigo jeans with no shoes. He seemed to be deathly thin. He reminded me a bit of a panda.
"Welcome to Kai's Café," I sighed, reciting the line I've long since memorized, "What is your order?"
The man seemed to stare into my soul as he looked into my eyes. I saw a silver of intelligence in his eyes. Intelligence great enough to match my own-maybe even surpass me.
I was snapped out of my thoughts as he started to speak with a monotone voice. "Two slices of strawberry cheesecake and a white chocolate cappuccino."
I wrinkled my nose slightly as i wrote down his order. That was a lot of sugar. "Thank you, sir; I'll be right back with your order."
I walked away and pulled the slip of paper off, handing it through the window as the chef hung up his phone. "If you're done talking to your girlfriend," I said, "We have another order."
The chef glared at me. He had collarbone length raven black hair with chin length bangs that his hid left eye, silver-black eyes, and pale skin. He wore a dark grey coat over a black t-shirt, black jeans and black boots. Over all of this he wore a white apron.
"Screw you, Light," he snapped, "I was talking to my sister."
I walked away without another word and headed for another open table. I froze when a heavy demonic presence passed by. I looked out the window and got a glimpse of red eyes and a cocky smirk before the presence faded.
Kira had been out there. And he had seen me.
The people I mention I owned are named, listed in the order they appear:
Gabriel Thistlewood (^J^)
I actually got the name of the cafe from another OC of mine-Kai Sake (That's seriously his name! XD)
