Rei Sasaki quickly grabbed the orders that were up, those being for the table she served. She placed them on a tray, carefully balancing out the weight before holding it all in her one hand and walking to the waiting customers. She gave a smile and called out the breakfast orders, the patrons rose their hands. Carefully, Rei handed them out and asked if she could get them anything else, them answering no. She gave one more smile before she walked back to check if the orders for her other tables were ready. They weren’t but as she went up there her friend Katrina was up there grabbing her plates of food. Rei gently hip bumped her and Katrina rolled her eyes but smiled at Rei.
“Hey Rei.” Katrina said, slowly placing the food on the tray so she could speak to her friend. “What’re you up to besides not working?” she joked, looking over at Rei and raising her eyebrow at Rei’s dorky look she was giving Katrina.
“Is this what our college summer is going to be? Before our senior year? Working all morning and afternoon then going home and just watching movies with our crazy roommates or boyfriends?” Rei asked, her tone clearly showing she wanted something more. Katrina shook her head and finished placing the plates onto her nearly overflowing tray.
“There’s a lot more to do here.” Katrina said as she carefully used her one hand to balance the tray, though she was worried she’d drop it again. She didn’t know why she carried it with one hand, she was much too clumsy. “You just--” Rei cut her friend off, waving her hands about.
“No, no, there isn’t. I grew up in this town; I’ve lived in it for over twenty years. Trust me, it is boring.” She complained, not caring how impatient her customers were getting for their food. Katrina shrugged and gave Rei a sympathetic look.
“Maybe something awesome will happen to you then.” She said as she walked away, going to serve her hungry people. Rei groaned and shook her head, sticking her tongue out at Katrina’s back.
“Yeah if only.” She mumbled, going to all her customers with another smile, writing down their orders and sending them into the kitchen. So this is my routine for the whole summer. Rei grumbled in her head, sighing heavily. Such fun. She complained but still doing her job. As she was going up to get more plates of food, her busty blonde friend, Leiko, popped up next to her, making Rei jump.
“Oh hoo hoo! Look at who just walked in.” she cooed, nudging Rei and turning her head in the direction of two tall males and a female. One had blue edgy hair with pale blue eyes, a sneer on his face. He wore skinny jeans with high tops and a simple t-shirt that showed off his muscles, his arm draped around the shorter female. She had gorgeous long brown hair that accented her golden eyes. She wore a pair of short shorts and a tank top that showed quite a bit of cleavage. But, in front of the two was the one Rei found herself staring at. He was tall and had a lanky muscular build, his hair a fiery red and long. That long hair was down and a thick white headband wrapped around his forehead. He had chocolate brown eyes that looked around the room. He wore a tank top that showed off his tattoos and he had a pair of skinny jeans on too along with a pair of boots. They all sat at a table, the red headed male lazing across a chair and smiling at his friends.
"Yeah? So?" she said, looking away from the red head, trying to think of other things. Leiko stared at Rei and rose her eyebrow.
"Well you have to serve them!" Leiko said, patting Rei's back and getting her food.
"Wh-what? Why?" she asked, eyes wide, shaking her head. "Table forty-two is yours!" she whispered, not wanting anyone to hear. Leiko snickered and gave Rei a look that said Nope!
"You didn't say that yesterday when you said I needed to stop serving your tables." Leiko snickered once more, Rei pressing the palm of her hand to her face. God she hated Leiko at times. Her blonde friend walked away and let that sink in, Rei sighing and grabbing her pen and receipt pad, going over to the table.
"Hi, my name is Rei, I will be your server today. Are there any drinks I can get you?" she asked, the red head male dropping his menu and raising his eyebrow. The blue haired male spoke up, his voice raspy.
"Water fer me and her." he nudged the girl next to him, her smiling and leaning a bit more against him. "And I have no idea what he wants." he jerked his head towards the red head. He sighed and looked down on his menu.
"Just coffee I guess. And bring lots of sugar, I like it sweet." he snorted, the blue haired male shaking his head and rolling his eyes. Rei nodded and smiled at the again.
"Alright, I'll bring those right out." she turned and walked to go get the drinks. Leiko walked over and looked at Rei, getting coffee before Rei could, making Rei raise her eyebrow. Leiko glanced up at Rei and grinned.
"You're so lucky. You get to serve hot men." she said in a day dreamy tone. Rei rolled her eyes and poured water into two glasses, then waited for Leiko to finish pouring her coffee. Once she did, Rei took the pot and transferred coffee into the other cup she had and placed multiple packet of sugar next to the coffee.
"You have Reece dummy." she mumbled, Leiko smiling and nodding. Rei glanced over at the table they were both talking of. "Who are they anyways?" she asked, looking at the one who'd caught her attention. Leiko shrugged and pursed her lips, looking at Rei's interest.
"Maybe just some people who decided to stroll into our tiny little town. I know for a fact that I've never seen them before." she added before giving Rei a serious look. "I know you're looking for adventure this summer, but trust me, he is not going to be the answer. Okay?" she said, Rei rolling her eyes and dismissing the comment.
"Okay Leiko. Like I was going to run off with some random strangers." she snorted and went to get other plates of food since the only thing her tray had was drinks on it. She quickly served the red head's table and gave other customers the food they patiently were waiting for, occasionally chatting with her friends or regulars. The rest of the time went quickly and Rei found herself handing the check over to the blue haired male at the table. He glanced at it and tossed it to the other male, mumbling something about him not paying for it. Rei turned to go back to her job, going to come back and collect the money later, but she felt someone tap on her shoulder. As she turned back around, she came face to face (more like fact to chest) with the red haired male.
"Hey uh... Rei, is it?" he asked, Rei nodding and raising her eyebrow. "The tip is all there." he jabbed his thumb over his shoulder, indicating to the table and check she just gave them. Rei nodded again and didn't say anything, there being just an awkward silence between the two. The man smirked and turned, leaving the restaurant to go be with his friends. Rei watched after him before walking over to the table and getting the money and check. As she picked them up, a small note slipped out between the money and check. It flitted down to the floor and Rei bent down, picking it up. Not wanting to keep and of the other customers waiting, she stuffed it into her pocket and going back to her job.
Once the work day was finished (which was only until noon since it was a breakfast serving restaurant) Rei's hand was itching to pull out the note and read what was written down. but she couldn't, not yet. Leiko or Katrina or some other co-worker would see and pester her about it and Rei really didn't want to explain. So she decided to wait until she got to her car or back to the apartment she shared. As she was walking out, the want overcame her and she pulled out the note, trying to read as she walked. Just as her eyes were upon the paper, someone snatched it from her hands.
"Ooooh! Is Rei-Rei getting love notes?" Leiko cooed, Rei's eyes whipping up to see her friend reading the note, raising her eyebrow and glancing up at Rei. "Have you read this yet?" she asked. Rei shook her head and reached for it.
"No! So give it back Lei!" Rei whined, her friend tucking the note in between her large breasts, smiling as she knew Rei wouldn't reach there.
"You don't need to read it. Or you know... if you do, I could let you read it in front of Jo." Leiko added, Rei glaring at the blonde and crossing her arms. "Good. You know--"
"Yeah, yeah, this is for my own good. My best interests are in mind... thanks mom." Rei grumbled and walked past Leiko, out the building and into the blistering summer heat. "See you tomorrow Leiko." Rei waved before walking to her car and stepping inside. As soon as she started it up, she put the window down, her care like an oven from all the time it spent in the heat. She drove to the off campus apartment and parked in the parking lot it had, putting her car in the spot with shade. She got out and walked into the building, sighing at how boring her day had been already. Making her way up to the apartment, she pulled out her keys and once she reached the apartment, unlocked the door and stepped inside.
"Resu! I'm back." she called out, only to have no response. Maybe she was out or something, probably doing something better then what Rei had been doing. Wanting to get out of her work uniform, and get it washed for tomorrow, she walked to the bedroom she and Resu shared. Rather than being in an empty room, she was greeted by Resu, half naked and pinned on top of Rei's dresser by Toshiro Hitsugaya, her boyfriend. Rei widened her eyes before covering them, Resu noticing her presence.
"Rei! What the hell?!" she hissed, immediately covering herself and sitting up, knocking heads with Toshiro in the process. He grumbled something and got off of Resu, rubbing his forehead.
"I-I called out when I walked into our apartment. And plus you know I'm out of work as soon as noon hits!" she was bright red now with embarrassment.
"Well you shouldn't just barge into my--" Rei sneered and gave a glare at the hand she had covering her eyes.
"Our room Resu!" Rei replied. "Look," she sighed. "All I need are some clothes okay? Then I'll be out of your hair." she said, hearing Resu move off the dresser. Rei removed her hand and quickly grabbed a simple flowing tank top and jean shorts. Then, she grabbed some flip-flops and left the room, the door immediately slamming shut behind her. Rei shook her head and removed her current clothes, replacing them with the ones she had gotten from her room. Once she changed, she tossed her clothes beside the door and walked out into the kitchen, sighing and trying to find something to do. Luckily, just after she thought that, her friend Akuma Chishio texted Rei, telling her she'd gotten home from her long vacation and wanted to know if Rei'd like to hang out. The female replied with a yes, walking out of the apartment with her keys and phone. At least she had found something to do.
