Open for Business 2: Baking Boogaloo

Who: Open to all (but especially Nanami)!
Where: A nice little bakery in the Virgo district, thankfully undamaged despite all the recent happenings.
Summary: Shelly has been productive.
Warnings: None for now, aside from ordinary, vague Shelly-grade creepiness.

Shelly wouldn't call it a plus, exactly, but the fact that his apartment was wrecked does mean that he spends a lot more time in the bakery these days. As a result, his humble bakery is currently full of fresh, delicious goodies... at incredibly appealing prices! What a business man.

Just don't go into the back room.

He would be very displeased if you went into the back room.

[Bobby still hasn't so much as considered extending an invitation to Shelly. He would, however, help with rebuilding if asked. He's been helping out around the city a lot ever since the mysterious-quake-that-wasn't-quite-so-mysterious, after all.

He doesn't exactly shy away from the bakery either. In fact, he still stops by at least once a week to grab a donut or whatever else catches his fancy. A pastry once a while never hurt anybody.

Which is exactly why he's strolling into the shop again today. He's wearing his usual toothy grin and flicks his hand at Shelly in a salute.]

Good morning, Mr. Baker!
spiritofjustice: (Working day and night)

[Of course it's nice. Why, it's just common sense. What other sort of treatment would a simple baker and a detective give each other, really?]

Good! Very good! We're making a lot of progress with the restoration of town hall.

[He pauses in front of one of the display cases to peer down at a particularly scrumptious-looking cake. In fact, most of his attention seems to be going into that. Bobby gets distracted far too easily for his own good.]
spiritofjustice: Please don't take without permission! (And I want you dead)

[personal profile] spiritofjustice 2014-06-29 02:12 pm (UTC)(link)
[Bobby tears his own gaze away from the cake again, still grinning brightly.]

Of course! No better bakery in town than this one!
spiritofjustice: (Neither black nor white)

[personal profile] spiritofjustice 2014-06-30 04:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Whah- Whoever said anything about a discount? What sort of man do you take me for?
spiritofjustice: (You're an empty breed)

[personal profile] spiritofjustice 2014-06-30 05:42 pm (UTC)(link)
[Capable or not, Bobby's the kind of guy to take remarks like that a little too seriously. Alas. Best not to joke around him, especially when it comes to things related to justice.

He pouts for a moment longer, then straightens up again.]

Just one is fine for me! I have to watch my physique, you know.

Food is important, food never fails to surprise Nanami with how tasty food is, and it says something about how much of a shut-in she is. Welp. Never too late to expand your horizons and visit new places, experience new things, right? Wait, she's just strolling down a street in Virgo and turning into a bakery. This is probably an over-exaggeration. No one can be that much of a shut-in.

(If you ask her about bakery experience she'll pause for a long while and respond, vaguely, "Well..... ......not much...")

It's probably the smell. Boy does this place smell really nice, like warmth and butter and dough, it's overall very pleasant and something you could probably fall asleep inhaling. Nanami makes a slow round around the display, weighing her options carefully against the spare coins heavy in her pocket. Hmm. Hmmmmm, what to get, what to get, everything looks nice, maybe this? Or maybe that... well they both look.... hmm....

After a while her consideration drags into something akin to a game loading screen, and she stationary position in front of one of the bread displays drags into something that may become concerning to the casual observer.

..... ..... .. ...... zz....zzz..yes, about the.... bre...a...d.....

"-hm?" Her eyes open. Ah, yes, she was choosing bread, and she lifts a hand a bit to continue picking things out before the pressure on her shoulder registers. Nanami pauses with a noise that could be interpreted as vaguely confused.

"Oh.... ...yes, ah, did you need something?"

Nanami should really figure something out regarding this thing where people are suddenly asking her if she's alright. Going out and mingling with civil society meant that your randomly falling asleep became less of a taken-for-granted quirk you had and more of a concerning thing.

Nanami turns to look as the touch disappears. It's a mild-looking mustached man and his expression isn't easy to read, though he seems at the very least in a pleasant mood.

John Doe? Isn't that a term from murder-mystery games, the titles involving law enforcement used that... it's probably an actual term used in places too. John Doe. It's a little weird talking to someone with a video game name, it doesn't quite sound real.

At any rate, he's given his name, general courtesy seems to dictate that she give hers too. "Ah, my name is Nanami Chiaki. I did arrive in this city only quite recently.... ...."

"Do you bake these yourself or do you have them baked for you?"
press_start: (headtilt nami)

[personal profile] press_start 2014-07-05 04:00 pm (UTC)(link)
He bows, and she bows slightly back with a vague sort of smile. Courtesies should be returned, right? Never mind that she just recalled the particular fact about the name 'John Doe' and corpses, picked up from cutscenes where cops and private-eyes in trenchcoats watched steam rise from cups of coffee- sitting outside a dozen cafes on a dozen separate midnights.

This is clearly not a cafe on the lower end of middling standards. Besides, video game references tend to throw people off a lot.

"Oh.... I see, that's quite impressive." Besides besides! Who knows if this whole place is just one big game. Nanami makes a mental note to remember and keep tabs on this kindly man in case the plot tries to kill him.

Nanami adds, almost as an afterthought, "This is... a lot of bread. They smell really nice."
press_start: (thinking nami)

[personal profile] press_start 2014-07-12 01:31 pm (UTC)(link)
"Mm, yes, I'm looking for bread..." Sweeter delicacies would be nice to pursue at a later point in time, but she had a goal right now and that was to properly feed herself. Sweets and chocolates and things were probably not the best source of energy.

Nanami nods with her affirmative response, her head tilting slightly as she lifts it again. Hmm. How hungry was she? How long was it to dinner? Mmm, the bread was smelling really good.

"I was just thinking over what to get. Ah, do you have any recommendations?"

[ franziska, for all her investigating, still never knew the identity of the man who shot her. so she strolls into shelly's bakery none the wiser. everything looks good. it's fresh and smells nice. she's almost impressed.

almost being the keyword. she's just taking a really long time looking at everything, and it's not indecision!! it most certainly isn't!! ]

too bad

[personal profile] stringent 2014-07-01 12:11 pm (UTC)(link)
I wish to buy all of these.

[ she asked, pointing to a tray of six cream buns that were glistening with jam. there was no doubt that shelly was good at what he did.

was it just her or did his voice sound familiar? ]

No, of course not. I intend to keep them as a treat for myself and perhaps give half to my assistant if he performs his tasks well.

{ aka she needs things to eat for afternoon tea time, and if bobby doesn't mess up her tea, then he gets a tiny crumb. isn't she kind. ]
