It was still dark when Ben opened his eyes as the alarm on his cell started going off. He pushed The Darkness off his chest and the small kitten grumbled at him. "Common Dark, you know when the alarm goes off I have to get up. Besides you know what that means..." He looked at the kitten like he expected him to answer. "It's Breakfast time." The kitten scooted off the bed and raced down the hall. As Ben got ready for work the kitten came back to the room several times to voice his impatience, and Benjamin just chuckled. He pulled on his socks and mumbled to the kitten, "Alright alright I'm coming." He said as he ambled down the hall in the dark and flicked on the light it the kitchen. He blinked a few times to get used to the light and opened the cupboard where he kept Dark's food. he scooped some into the bowl and put it on the floor. "There now you can be quiet. Remember I won't be home right after my shift at the diner," he said to the cat who was too engrossed in his food to pay any attention to him, so Ben was more or less talking to himself. "I have to go to Mrs. McMillans to fix the leak in her kitchen." He put a little more water into the kittens water bowl and pulled on his coat and toque.

Stepping out of the house, Benjamin picked up his snow shovel and began to clear the drive way he and elderly Mr James shared. Once done he started his little car and brushed the snow from it. He checked the clock on the dash, it was five thirty in the morning, which ment he had ten minutes to get to the diner and open the doors for eveyone. Good thing it was only down the street. Ben pulled out of the driveway and made his way down the quiet streets. He pulled up to the dark diner and got out of the car. The walks here needed to be shovelled so he unlocked the doors and made quick work of clearing the sidewalks. He went inside fired up the coffee pots and the ovens for the day.

The diner would get its usual morning crowd before long. Time to get ready for the day. He tied on his apron and set to work preparing for the day. Susan, the diner manager came into the back just as Ben was peeling a bin of onions. "Morning Sue. How are you this morning?" He asked smiling at her.
"Well Ben, not so good to be honest. One of our three servers quit, and another is sick which leaves just you me and Becky to run this place." She looked sad. "I don't know how we're going to make it." Ben put down his knife and onion wiping his hands on a damp cloth, he gave her a hug.
"We'll manage Sue, we always do." He said with a smile. "Now then do you want Ol' Ben here to whip up a nice breakfast for you?" He said brandishing a whisk.
"No darlin you know it's only a smoke and a coffee for me dear. Look doll, Becky isn't due in until around ten this morning, do you think you can manage both back here and the few tables we'll get this morning so I can put a food order in?" She looked at him with sad eyes, and Ben felt bad for her.
"Of course!" He said with an enthusiasm he hoped made her feel better. "I can be a one man show for a while." He winked at her. "Gives me a chance to show off a bit." She smiled at him and gave him a hug.
"You're a life saver kid!" and she disappeared into the office to start the invoices. Ben continued peeling his onions.

The tinkling bell of the front door sounded and Ben looked up, he wiped his hands picked up an ordering pad and stepped out into the dinning room. He approached the booth with a smile.
"Good Morning my name is Benjamin and I'll be your server and chef this morning, can I start you with some coffee while you decide?"

The moment that the alarm started to go off, a hand shot out from under the blankets, and a black haired female groaned. She really didn't know what she was going to do for the day, she wanted to get her classes done, but she also knew if she did, she would have more homework. She shook her head as she slid out of her bed, and padded towards the bathroom. She checked in on her older brother, and saw that he was still sleeping. She would have to get him up in a little while. She shook her head lightly, as she walked into the bathroom and shut the door behind her. She stripped out of her sleeping clothes, and jumped into the shower turning the water on. She tipped her head back and closed her eyes, letting the water warm her cold body. She let out a small sigh as she just stood there. Her mind going every which way. She was at a loss for a moment.


When she was done in the shower she jumped out, and wrapped herself up into a towel, and she walked into her bothers room. She pounced on his bed and licked his cheek "Time to get up sleepy head, we have classes" she said. When she heard a mumble about her getting off of him, she giggled and did so. She was always acting weird around her brother. He was after all the only other person in her life. She didn't want people knowing that their parents had left them alone, she shook her head when he shoved her off. She slid off of him, and she walked out of the room and back into her own. A minute later she heard the bathroom door close, and she had a small smile on her face. She hurried and got dressed, and the young girl sighed a little. The classes she was taking were taking their toll on her, she was losing sleep, and was falling behind in everything. That wasn't something she was needing at the moment.


When she was dressed in a pair of shorts, and a white t-shirt, she gathered up her things, and made sure that everything she needed was in her bags. She walked out of the room, her shoes down by the front door. It was only six-thirty in the morning, and she was needing to get to her favorite coffee shop and try to get some studying done. She knocked on the door and called out "I'm leaving Malic! I'll see you later tonight" when she had gotten an okay, she walked away and down the stairs. She slid on her shoes, grabbed her car keys, and walked out of the house and to her car. She slid into the drivers seat and she put her head against the steering wheel. She would walk to the coffee shop, but today was one of those days, where she would need her car after all. She started the car, and pulled out of the driveway, turning on her Coheed and Cambria CD's and rolled down the windows. It was going to be a good day, and she would be in classes.


When the coffee shop came into view, she didn't know if it was a good idea to be doing it here, but it was her favorite place to be. Plus she loved seeing the male Ben, he always seemed to bring a smile to her face. She pulled into a parking spot, shut off the car and grabbed her bag. She locked the car and she headed inside. There wasn't that many people there that morning, but she didn't mind. If more people did come, she would have her headphones in her ears in a heart beat. She walked over to a table and sat down. She pulled out her math book, right when the male walked over and she smiled up at him. She didn't know what to get in the mornings. She nodded her head lightly "I would like a black coffee, no sugar or anything please" she said. Her grey eyes smiling up at him. She turned back to what she was doing, and pulled out a notebook along with a pencil. When she looked up again he was gone.


She didn't know what it was about the male, but everytime she saw him, it was like something inside of her was stirring. She shook her head and turned her eyes down to the task at hand. She had to get her math homework finished before she headed to her class. She shook her head a little and pulled her hair back into a ponytail. This was one of her worst subjects, but it was also one she had to pass, otherwise she would fail out of college, and she wouldn't be able to get a better job. When her hair was out of her eyes, she pulled the books towards her, and pulled her legs up under her. She opened her notebook to a clean page, and she started to do her math work. She didn't care if people saw her, she was just happy she could be in a place she loved so much to do it. People thought it was weird, when all it was, it was something to relax her, and not stress her out so much. She lowered her head, and started working.

((Oh my goodness I'm sorry I've been gone so long!!! Also I'm sorry that it's a little short))

Ben smiled at the woman and wrote down her order of coffee on his little pad. "Coming right up." He said and moved off to pour the girl the a coffee. Reaching the counter he paused and looked bac at her. She spent a fair amount of time her with her head nestled into a book. He wondered if this was one of her studying hidey holes. He had to admit the diner had been dead lately so it was rather conducive for quiet study. Not to mention people didn't usually bother each other in the diner. He sighed and shook his head. He reached above his head and pulled a white china cup down off the shelf and set it on the counter. He picked up the coffee pot and filled the mug. He then placed the mug on a serving saucer and made his way back to her table. "Here you go." He said and pulled out his pad again. "Are you ordering anything else this morning?" He said almost hoping that she would order some breakfast so that he would have something else to do with himself. If she didn't order something he'd have to do one of the menial tasks that Sue had put on his list of things to accomplish today. Fold napkins, pour ketchups, peel more vegetables, not that he usually minded, but today he would much rather make the pretty girl breakfast.

The female looked up and she smiled lightly at him, she really didn't know what to do with herself right now. She looked down at the menu before she looked up at him once more "I'll get the breakfast sandwhich, just surprise me with what you put on it" she said as she shut the menu and handed it to him. She watched him silently and she chewed on her lower lip, before she finally looked down and lifted the cup to her lips and took a sip. She set the cup down once more and looked back at the book before her. She groaned lightly as she leaned back. She hadn't realized how hard this would have been on her.

She wasn't one to pace herself, she had always been the one to take everything on at once. She shook her head lightly as she put her hands on her stomach, right as it growled. She shook her head a little, and bit the inside of her cheek. She hadn't known she was hungry, but she was. She slid her feet up onto the chair across from her, and she looked out the window. It was pretty quiet here, and she knew it would only get more busy when people were out of bed. She leaned her head back slightly, as she streached her arms out in front of her. She watched the cars rolling by, before she found herself looking for the male that had been helping her.

She didn't know why, but something about him made her nervous. She wasn't one to be like that at all. She shook her head and looked down at the book once more. She picked up her high lighter, and pulled the book to the edge of the table and scanned the words. She knew she wouldn't get it all done, but for now she would at least get some of it right? She laughed softly, as she didn't even know the male's name. Either that or she hadn't listened. She shrugged it off, and lifted the cup once more, and took another sip, setting it down against the book, her eyes moving back and forth along the page.

(Sorry! I've been busy with my god baby! I will be on more though I promise you!)
