"I'd like to take the coffee cake special." He spoke as he placed his arms on the table, chin propped up on one of his hands. "And a cup of coffee, please." He took a quick glance over to the newcomer, looking him up and down for a few moments before turning his attention back to the lady. "Can I have some extra creamer with that?" He didn't like his coffee to be bitter. He liked it sweet because undeniably, his sweet tooth was growing bigger and bigger these days and he had no problem and indulging in it.

Lysander watched as two more people showed up and as Rose went to tend to them. He sipped his coffee and thought about her question his story was a sad one and was not for the faint of heart. He reached into his pocket and pulled out his book, which was tiny in his hands he opened it up and started to read, he did so while enjoying the atmosphere of the quaint cafe.

The brunette smiled and nodded making a mental note of the guests order who propped himhelf up on his elbows. " of course no problem, I will surprise you with a decent slice of our cake! You won't be disappointed. " she chimed,  directing her response excitedly.  seems like today is going well.. ' The thought quietly crept into her mind as another guest arrived into the Cafe,  though The new comer seemed rather slump and pale in complexion as if he ran a marathon. 

Rose quickly got herself into gear,  putting a good slice of her famous dark forest chocolate cake,  sliding the decent slice onto a saucer with ease,  then finishing the fresh brewed coffee with a dollop of fresh creamer,  smooth and frothy. She placed the two servings in front of the gentleman carefully. " please enjoy,  sir.  Hope it's to your liking. " a smile crossed her lips as she moved on to her next quest.

At the other's declaration, the corner of his lips twitching. "I'll be expecting that." He wasn't one to take these types of declarations lightly, after all. If one were to tell him to expect something, he was going to hold their words over their head and his next course of actions will depend whether they met those expectations or not. Though of course this was only a slice of cake, he wasn't even that hungry for it so he wasn't going to go to extremes if it didn't meet his expectations. He wasn't one to voice them, anyway.

Quietly he watched as she moved around swiftly and smoothly, eyeing the slice of chocolate cake and from the faint scent it emitted, he could tell it not to sweet, but sweet enough to entertain him. He hummed at the aroma of the coffee, straightening in his seat and looking over his order with a small, satisfied smile. "Thank you, miss." Taking a fork as well as a knife, he cut off a piece of the chocolate and tasted it with a hum. "..True to your words, aren't you?" His smile widened a bit, enjoying the taste as he took a sip of his coffee.

The light in the cafe was starting to dim slightly,  The girl seemed somewhat surprised as it was already nearing noon but she didn't pay it much mind as she approached the rather pale gentleman who only just entered the cafe.  The guest seemed rather exhausted, " welcome to the corner cafe,  sir. " she paused for a moment pondering if whether she should question his rather ill complexion that was plainly visible on his face. " could I interest you in something to eat? You seem rather pale sir?" The question escaped her without a second thought, concern written on her features. Rose waited for the gentleman to reply,  her gaze shifted towards lysanders table checking to see if he seemed alright,  thought the rather large man seemed to be busying himself with a rather small book compared to his size,  she chuckled quietly to herself.

The rather unexpected reply from the guest who sat enjoying the devine dessert that wafted to her nose,  thanked her sincerely which brought a satisfied smile to her lips, " your most welcome,  glad it's to your taste.  Hm,  I only serve the best to my guests,  you can count in it. " her smile grew bigger,  complete confidence oozing from her being,  directing a response to the guest who smiled pleasingly at her. The girl wiped down the counter busying herself quietly, close enough to receive any other requests from her guests.

Streaching, Anton raised his head. In front of him stood a girl who had a worried smile on him. He gave out a chuckle, making some cynical joke inside his head, then smiled back. Taking in a deep breath, he straightened in his seat and took a glance around the cafe, and noticed nothing new but the departure of some guests he had noticed before. His gaze turned back to... Well, he assumed she was a waitress or some other type of employee. That didn't matter though:

"Hello. How are you on this fine day?" He said in a happy tone, contradicting his facial expression: "I must say this is a rather nice place. If anything in Casper comes close, I think I'll be very pleased with my visit." He said laughing. It took a few seconds for him to register the fact that she asked him for something to eat:

"Ah, yes. Well, I'm new here and I'd like to try some local specialties. What do you recommend?"

Rose looked over to the gentlemen across the counter,  he seemed a little out of it for a few moments it seemed,  though his words were the opposite as he straightened up on the stool he sat on. The brunette just smiled relived she had nothing too worry about, ' I must have been hallucinating' she shook her head to rid the thought. 

" Doing quiet well,  thank you for asking.  Hope you are too. " her eyes shone, enlightenment shining on her features. " Ah,  I'm glad to hear it. I hope you enjoy your stay then. I'm the owner of this establishment,  so don't hesitate to ask any queries. " Rose smile delighted at the compliment she was given from the gentlemen who laughed lightly towards her. 

" I'd have to recommend our pie special, along with our freshly brewed famous coffee." she replied,  but a thought occurred to her that she had something in the oven! Smoke emerged from the direction of the kitchen,  panicked struck her. Quickly the girl excused herself cursing under her breath,  rushing over towards the kitchen almost tripping over her own two feet. 

Moments later she appeared out the kitchen wearing a rather forced  smile,  inwardly Rose kicked herself mentally being so careless. " sorry about that.. Just a little prone accident. " a chuckle escaped her,  passing the accident off as nothing serious.

Crocodile tumbled through the doorway and into the cafe, lurching over stools and tables and into the counter. He stayed still for a short while. Then he pressed his jaw to the counter-top, staring up at the girl behind the counter. He opened his mouth and snapped it shut it again. Nothing happened. He shot upright and loomed over a shocked couple's table and stole their cups, which he carefully placed upon the counter. Then he slammed his head back down on the counter-top, tottering the cups. After a while he removed a ring from his finger, which he set down beside the cups. He pushed it towards the girl. The ring was made of solid gold. He hissed, and steam drifted from between his teeth.

Busying herself amongst odd jobs, racking up cups and saucers,  placing them into their designated areas.  Rose wondered if whether she didn't inherit her mother's "perfectionist" habit,  having to put things exactly right,  spotless and shiny.  

Suddenly as she was about to round the counter,  a flash before her eyes blurred her vision.  Everything went by like flash,  she blinked quickly adjusting her vision once more. As her eyes refocused on what seemed like a blur,  everything fell silent. Her eyes fell upon a creature! No,  a reptile was the correct term to describe this unfathomable, strange like creature.  Just moments ago the wooden  floor felt like it was rumbling,  as if a bowling ball was rolling down an alley.  Rose stared at the creature in shock and awe,  unable to form and sort of sentence in her mind.  Her eyes darted around the cafe,  finding some tables and chairs toppled over onto the ground from the unexpected guests sudden appearance. 

Slowly the girl went back behind the counter,  putting on her business smile.  "Welcome sir,  how can I help you? " she asked,  but as the question slipped,  the reptile like creature suddenly looked at her expectantly? is he trying to tell me something? Can he not talk..?' she pondered,  as she watched the reptile grabbing two mugs close by,  then placing them onto the counter gently along with a golden piece of jewelry. Rose leaned in closer towards the shiny object,  peering at its beauty and worth. "This is.. Sir this is of high value,  I just can't accept this. " she directed her response firmly, before pushing the gold piece back towards the curious looking reptilian.

Meredith was a Small country mouse. She had garnered attention down south for her lively and often profound articles at the local paper. This is how she had come to know Eridias Drew, the big-shot newspaper executive who'd read her article about the Winter-time festivities in  Lisa, her hometown. Meredith had never dreamed of writing for anything larger than the local tabloid. Not that she wanted to travel to the city. No. she was content at home, with her babies and Howie.

Then Howie got sick. Something about a bug and an immune deficiency causing havoc on his muscle tissue. Nothing Meredith would pretend to comprehend. She mailed Eridias Drew a letter accepting the job offer in the city. Her mother would care for the family for as long as it took. Meredith kissed her husband and children goodbye and took a cabbie west  as far as it would go. After the ride had reached its limits, she had trudged through as far as her feet dragged her, amazed by thee sights and homesick simultaneously.  Her long trip west wore her down, so on the third day of walking, when she found the Corner Cafe, she hopped in thankful for the well-deserved pit stop. 

" It's Beautiful..." she whispered pressing the carpet bag with the broken hinge against her pudgy stomach. 

The luxuries of the cafe,  the frilled curtains and the round pillows strewn about casually, were unlike anything Lisa provided. Even if it could, nobody there would have the imagination to decorate like this. 

Meredith caught whiff of blackberry jam. It made her stomach growl and her whiskers twitch.

" I don't usually indulge, but I've been traveling so long!'' she sighed.

"So if you don't mind, I would like a cup of coffee with lots of cream and lots of sugar."

she smelled the pastries "And a raspberry Danish."

The morning was a rather quiet one, the weather seemed pleasant as well.  Rose had no particular chore to do around the Cafe, as the day felt like a long drawn out one, slow.  Rose contemplated closing up early - that's when a familiar chime jingled, welcoming a new face to the quaint store. 

"Welcome. " she responded to the new customer with a warm smile. The brunette gestured for them take a seat  while she waited on them.  "That's one cup of coffee,  extra cream,  sugar and one raspberry Danish! " she repeated the order while scribbling it down,  her voice pleasant and chirpy. "You must've traveled quite the distance. Please take this time to relax. I'll bring your order in a jiffy.  If you'll excuse me.. " with that Rose disappeared to kitchen whipping up a freshly brewed cup of her famous coffee, with a dollop of fresh cream to finish to give a finish touch, and not to forget one good spoon of sugar. Done.  The raspberry Danish she set on side saucer,  it still had that 'fresh out of the oven ' feel to it.

"Your order Miss. " Rose reappeared out the kitchen with tray in hand. She swiftly set  the Coffee and side dish on to the table gently in front of the Mouse. "Please take your time to indulge and  do Enjoy. " she stated with a warm smile patting her hands onto her apron. 

Rose attention was caught by the worn out bandages around the Mouse's feet,  she could tell straight away that They must've traveled far and wide. To what extend? She had no clue.

The mouse smiled. Often, humans worried about animal-types walking around barefoot. What about he splinters? The rocks? et cetera. But the reality of the situation was that the pads on her feet were as strong as rubber soles. The heavily callused feet assured that she never felt the rocks or woods she might step on.

Paws made it impossible to keep the floor clean. The folds where skin met skin created crannies that collected mud and pebbles they scratched floors and browned carpets. Wrapping talons in cloth kept this mess from occurring. The children would stop at the place mat at the burrow and remove the rags from their feet before dinner.  It was also slightly more socially acceptable than baring the rough, hairy and often scaly  hind legs in a human setting. 

The mouse waved her hand away at the girl's concern. 

" Its no bother, except for the dirt." 

She picked up the pastry in a lady-like manner using the tips of her fingers to avoid any stains. She blew the oozing jam. It cooled instantly against her breath forming a layer of skin. She nibbled the edge and smiled. A shy little grin of a smile she covered with the tip of her hand. Even now , in her late age, as specks of white littered her coat, she had preserved that girlish charm that had snagged Howie.
