It's a rainy afternoon which suits the girl making her way towards food that has two key components. She doesn't have to prepare it, and it's not inside of the manor. Sure it's a home, she's not angry about it, but after weeks of work and digging into a problem, sometimes you just need to get far, far away from said problem.

Stepping up to the door, she leans back, looks around, glances inside to see if anyone's looking her way. After making sure the coast is clear, Jiaying uses magic to draw the water from her clothes and flings it to the side before stepping inside. She may or may not be looking around for familiar faces. She's wearing a light jacket, a sleeveless blouse and a pair of shorts and a pair of sandals. That anyone watching would have been put on after she got to the door and not a moment sooner.
Makio Ryu 2018-04-24 16:58:00 90677
Makio Ryu is somehow, perfectly, not there the moment before a person is WANTED to be there. He was probably already helping someone until just now. He'd offer a little bow. "Welcome to cafe Mew Mew, M'lady Jiaying, would you like to be seated," the bluenette boy greets her. At least he should be a partially familiar face. It's probably weird seeing him dressed up half formal with his hair fixed up and not hiding one eye...and trying to be so polite.
Jiaying Maki 2018-04-24 17:03:21 90678
Jiaying Maki leans forward and looks at the boy's face, staring for a moment. She stops herself short of asking an awkward question as she stands back up, looks around and looks vaguely embarrassed. "M'lady?" She asks instead. That's a good cover right? She runs her fingers through her hair and looks awkward, then suddenly says, "Food. Uh, any recommendations for food I mean?"
Makio Ryu 2018-04-24 17:12:06 90680
Makio Ryu looks thoughtful. "Well, it's hard to recommend AGAINST anything. Strawberry Cheesecake seems to be one of the favorites here, but the range goes from very simple and common to extremely complex and expensively decadent. Is there any sort of qualities you're looking for specifically right now? Something tart? Something sickening levels of sweet? Something just a /little/ salty?" He'd stand up and adjust the glasses. "Milk and green tea seem to be the most ordered drinks."
Jiaying Maki 2018-04-24 17:24:03 90681
Jiaying Maki tilts her head from side to side for a moment, then shakes her head. "I don't know! All of it sounds kind of good actually." She huffs and looks to the side, trying to think. "Cheese cake is a good start, no chocolate right?" She toe taps while she thinks, seeming to try and ofcus herself. "Green tea please, definitely green tea." There's a pause, "You guys don't do eggs here right?"
Makio Ryu 2018-04-24 17:30:18 90682
Makio takes down the order for cheesecake and green tea. "There's no chocolate with a normal order of cheesecake, but we can add chocolate if you want," he replies with an uncertainty to what she means by 'no chocolate'. "We avoid eggs in our usual making of things, but we will use them by request."
Jiaying Maki 2018-04-24 17:53:48 90683
Jiaying Maki glares at Makio and points, "You know I'm allergic!" then she stops, hesitates and looks embarrassed. "Wait uh- I think you did?" She pauses, "You've seen...." scowl. "Nevermind. No chocolate please, I'm allergic." She shakes her head and mutters to herself before asking, "I meant eggs like just... eggs. I like eggs."
Makio Ryu 2018-04-24 17:57:59 90684
Makio Ryu nods a little. "Right sorry du--er lady...a lot's gone on the past few months," he murmurs, "Plain order, use the eggs." He'd offer another bow. He can't even remember if he saw anything that made that obvious or not at the moment, but he assumes he should appologise for it either way. ".../did/ you want to be seated?"
Jiaying Maki 2018-04-24 18:07:12 90685
Jiaying Maki pauses and says, "You don't need to call me lady, you know me!" she huffs and mutters, "I don't think lady sounds right is all.." A look to one of the seats, then she says, "Sure sure, I was planning on that. Wanted to have a place out of the house, you know?"
Makio Ryu 2018-04-24 18:18:11 90686
"S-sorry, it's a work thing dude," Makio replies at Jiaying's huffing. He'd nod to the positive responce on sitting before ushering her over to one of the tables, pulling the chair out for her, et all. "And I'll get that order turned in...maybe I can get a break in too so I can stop acting so weird..."
Jiaying Maki 2018-04-24 18:24:32 90687
Jiaying Maki shakes her head and says, "Ma'am or miss works well too." She then glances sidelong at him and asks, "Why m'lady? Is that required?" She at least sounds curious rather than upset. She nods and gestures to the table, "Take a seat if you're taking a break? It's been a while."
Makio Ryu 2018-04-24 18:28:20 90688
Makio Ryu would go and turn in the order before returning and sitting. "It's just to match with the whole butler thing. I can't imagine they'd be too upset with using ma'am instead..." At least it's better than saying stuff like master and mistress, they didn't go THAT far on the theme. "Yeah, things got kind of crazy," he says as he takes off the glasses, "How've you been?"
Jiaying Maki 2018-04-24 18:38:31 90689
Jiaying Maki settles into her seat and slumps back. "What's happened? I've been both busy and elswhere lately. did something break?" she sits forward, almost lurching in her movement. Chin on her hands, she watches. "I don't know about butlers, they always seemed weird to me. I do kind of like the maid dress, but that's just because they're cute. I'd not wear it."
Makio Ryu 2018-04-24 18:43:42 90690
Makio Ryu shakes his head. "I hope nothing broke. I just got a lot more serious about my school work and I'm having to make up for being so behind on a lot of things if I want to graduate from high school honestly in the proper year that it's dug into a lot of my free time. Well, there's other stuff too, but that's things I shouldn't talk about. Yeah, this get up's awkward, but apparently it attracts customers? I can't really account for the taste of random girls..."
Jiaying Maki 2018-04-24 18:57:33 90691
Jiaying Maki tilts her head and asks, "You weren't serious about schoolwork before? I thought it was mandatory for having a job while still in school?" She peers, "You were about to lose that weren't you?" before snrking softly. Settling back in her seat after and actually trying to get comfortable, she asks, "The suit's not so bad, but it seems stuffy and the idea itself is weird to me. Other stuff though?"
Makio Ryu 2018-04-24 19:03:02 90692
Makio Ryu shakes his head. "Having rich enough parents that insist on paying your way through everything kinda makes it a non-issue," he states, "But I got fed up with things and finally got them to cut it out, so now I'm having to manage on my own efforts...I wasn't about to lose it, but I will be if I don't shape up /now/." He tilts his head a little at the question, trying to decide how to answer. "Well, you work stuff....out night..."
Jiaying Maki 2018-04-24 19:33:07 90693
Jiaying Maki twirls her finger around a few times and says, "Ah, so you were buying your way through, I could see that being a problem." She laughs softly, then leans forward to watch at the mention of teamwork stuff. "Eeeeeh, if you're lacking on sleep, there's no shame in taking a night to rest. No one's doing any good by getting hurt doing something dumb." She pats her own shoulder and grins, "I know from first hand experience."
Makio Ryu 2018-04-24 19:35:25 90694
Makio Ryu shakes his head again at that comment. "I don't need lack of sleep to do something dumb," he says with a little chuckle, "But I guess maybe things are ok?" He tilts his head some afterward, "...first hand experiance though?"
Jiaying Maki 2018-04-24 19:45:39 90695
Jiaying Maki shakes her head and says, "Lack of sleep doesn't help though!" resting her chin on her hands, she adds, "Things are well enough, I've just been studying too much." She points and asks, "All that aside, what about yourself? And yes, that was the implication. I've hurt myself doing a lot of dumb things."
Makio Ryu 2018-04-24 19:50:15 90697
The order would arrive as Makio frowns slightly. "Oh, sorry about that," he murmurs, "Huh? Oh, I've been fine, nothing's TOO much yet, it's just getting to that point where things are starting to kind of blur together...I'm still trying to figure out a good balance, I think." "Maybe we should study together sometime since we're both studying a bit too much," he wonders, "Either help or distract eachother..."
