Meet Me At The Cross Roads
Who: Julian & Fiona
What: Job interview
When: 7 pm, sharp
There was an ebb and a flow to every day and night at CASKET - usually the weekends were the busier times, to be expected, while nights during the week were slow. Maybe there was some faux pas about drinking on a Sunday (Julian wouldn't know, he'd never been an especially religious man), but things were running a little slower than usual. He took the time appreciatively, though, in order to get a few things in line. A shipment of vodka had come in as mineral water instead, a mistake that amazed and infuriated Julian to no end; there was no way he was the one responsible for such an error, and an hour long phone conversation to a particular someone had left him in a rare rage that had all of his employees skirting around him for a few hours. He'd gone and holed up in his office, going through paperwork again and making phone calls, only to emerge with a smile and to quickly soothe any fears.
The band onstage leapt into their own version of Rob Dougan's Born Yesterday, which turned Julian's smile sour until the beat made him tap his toes and forget about the transgression for a little while. It was one thing, one little thing and every other event, order, person, and thing inside of his club was running like clockwork. Grabbing a rum and coke from Ysolde, the current bar tender (and yes, perhaps he did tend to hire more female drink slingers, but there was a damn good reason for that) just before moving around to mingle with a few regulars and new comers that decided to patronize the club that evening. By the time seven o'clock rolled around, though, he was behind the bar himself and doing an inventory just to calm his own mind regarding any other mishaps.
He had not, however, forgotten the appointment he'd made with a certain young lady who also resided at his apartment building. First the contacts Luc was providing proved astounding, so safe to say was that he had nothing but high expectations for this next potential recruit to CASKET - Julian never wanted anything but the best for his baby, so it was with some anticipation that he awaited Fiona's arrival.
