What Lies Ahead
Well, that’s class finished, time to head to work!
Lex stretched his arms out in the parking lot of the local university, limbering up after sitting still for so long in his Abnormal Psychology classroom. Easily enough, he found his motorcycle, a chrome 1998 Honda Shadow ACE 750 sitting in the middle of the lot, and quickly mounted it. With a turn of a key, the engine rumbled underneath him to a start. He put on his black helmet and kicked off, the loud engine puttering away as he went. The anon man grinned as his black silk tie flopped in the night wind, relishing the feeling riding the vehicle brought him. He always had his M licence, why didn’t he use it so much sooner?
The pizzeria was only about 10 minutes away by driving, but even then the anon hoped that the loud engine of the motorcycle didn’t wake up the neighbourhood. As the loud rumbling echoed into the child establishment’s parking lot, Lex dismounted, brushing off his black dress pants and white button-up shirt. He ran his hand from his forehead back, his short, white, wavy hair magically cured of helmet-hair.
After opening up the restaurant doors and locking them behind him as he always did, he adjusted his book bag and walked to the office, knowing full well that his friends would not be active until a little while longer.
As the clock struck twelve, Belladonna tossed and turned in her satin sheet bed, staring up at her ceiling, which seemed to mock her inability to sleep. With a huff, she tossed the covers off of her and donned one of her green vintage nightgowns, deciding it best of she brewed herself a small pot of chamomile tea from the little coffee maker she had near her mahogany makeup desk. As the pot of tea was brewing, she opened up the glass doors to her little balcony, letting the late spring air as well as the bright full moon into her room. She sighed and turned back towards her bed, noticing the dark necklace Axios gave her hanging off of her bed frame.
“You can feel free to call on me again. I will definitely hear you if you've got my necklace on… Take care and know that I’ll listen!”
The deity’s words echoed her head. Would he really be up for midnight chat? Could she trouble the man with such petty trifles? He did say that he’d listen either way… What’s the harm in trying? Worst case scenario: He’ll say no. Big whoop.
She walked over to the hanging necklace and took it off the bed frame, wearing it promptly. Closing her eyes and grasping the near-black metal in her hand, she thought the following words:
Care for a late night chat?
As expected, the Pizzeria was still and silent. Really, the only two who would be awake were Goldie and Foxy, as they seemed to simply ignore the curfew despite waiting for the others to activate before moving. The only other one who might move outside of the curfew times would have to be Robbie Rabbit, in the mascot repair room.
Axios had taken a brief pause in his exploration of this world, and was enjoying his rest when the enchanting woman from before once again entered his thoughts.
Care for a late night chat?
Well, certainly. He thought his reply to Belladonna. May I visit you directly or would you prefer I knocked on your door, hmm?
