WHO: Audrey, Dee, & OPEN WHAT: Audrey needed a place to study and so she retreats to the cafe WHEN: Monday, around 4:30 pm WHERE: Cafe Lunaire RATING: TBD
It wasn't the fact that she needed peace and quiet to study in. As a matter of fact, peace and quiet is what Audrey Davis had in her home, which was (at the moment) severely lacking in people...besides, of course, herself. With her brother Adam away at college and both parents away at work still, Audrey found herself in the very picture of a calm, quiet, and relaxed environment...an environment most would find extremely optimal for studying in. And under most circumstances, Audrey would have agreed. But not today. Today, there was something unsettling about the stillness and quiet of her house. Try as she might, Audrey could simply not concentrate on her homework. As fifteen minutes passed and Audrey still had made little to no progress on her homework, the young woman quickly became annoyed. Deciding that something would have to be done about this, it only took her five minutes to pack up her things, grab her keys, and head for her car.
The drive to Cafe Lunaire wasn't too awfully long, as Auds only lived a few miles away. Within minutes, she had pulled her blue car into the parking lot and making her way into the familiar cafe. As soon as she pushed the door open and entered the building, the aroma of coffee and the sounds of a cafe hit her. Slowly, a smile crept across her face. Choosing an empty table near the center of the cafe, Audrey set her backpack and books down before hurrying off toward the counter. Being a creature of habit, Audrey wasn't necessarily the type of person to suddenly try new things...drinks included. Tucking strands of copper hair behind her ears, Audrey placed her order politely with the cafe worker on duty ("A vanilla latte, please.") Waiting patiently (and stealing a glance over at her things, to make sure that they were still there) for her drink, it was only a few minutes before girl and latte were united at last. Offering up her cash, Audrey dropped a few spare coins in the tip jar and was off on her way.
Returning to her seat (carefully holding her vanilla latte), Audrey cautiously set the drink down onto the table in front of her before sitting down herself. Now she was ready for work. Unzipping her backpack and extracting a notebook and pencil, the St. Marina senior placed them neatly in front of her. Returning her bag to the vacant seat next to her, she now began to sift through the pages of a rather thick looking textbook before finally coming to stop on a page filled with text and very, very few pictures. Gracefully (or at least as gracefully as she possibly could), Audrey bent her body closer to her work as she began to write key words and important pieces of text down in her notebook. Only pausing to take a sip from her latte, it was only a matter of mere seconds before Auds was completely caught up in her homework; totally tuning the world of the cafe out around her. This is what she needed, and she was terribly happy that she had finally achieved it.
