Coffee and friends are the perfect blend [closed]
« on: August 13, 2018, 08:47:39 AM »
It was a nice Saturday morning in Atlas. The rising sun shone its light through the clouds and bathed the city in a pleasant light.

Kisha was standing in front of a small building with a brown winter coat and a beige scarf around her neck. The words 'Atlesian Coffeehouse' were written in capital letters on a wooden sign above the front door. The building itself let out a warm, inviting light and the smell of coffee and pastry filled the air, but Kisha decided not to go in yet.

She took a look around the street again. Some shops, many people going their way. It was actually quite similar to Vale, if it weren’t for the cold temperature and the military robots and soldiers stationed around every corner. It shouldn't surprise her, after all, Atlas was,the most advanced of them all if it comes to technology and military, and especially now that the Vytal festival was on pace, the security measures were particularly high, but with all the military, it was more of an uncomfortable rather than a secure feeling.

As she looked around, she started to step from one leg to the other to keep herself warm. Well, she couldn’t complain about it, it was her fault that she arrived almost fifteen minutes early, but now some time passed and her 'friend' should hopefully arrive soon.

Prism's not going to lie, she's not the biggest fan of Atlas.

Well, that's not true. It was always a dream to travel internationally, and thanks to the Vytal Tournament she'd finally gotten the chance to see the world beyond Vale. It was awesome being immersed in another country's culture, seeing all the local landmarks and trying the best streetfood. Hell, it was pretty cool seeing another country's hunter academy, and comparing what they had here to Beacon.

It just had to be Atlas though.

Where she couldn't enter certain shops because of the feathers that grew along her neck, or otherwise risk being refused service. Where she needed to hide the massive pair of wings on her back underneath a thick bomber jacket in order to avoid dirty glares in the street. Where she needed to ritualistically pluck the fledgling feathers that tried to grow in around her neck. Where the oppressive atmosphere was nearly so stifling it almost wasn't worth venturing outside, other than her matches for the tournament.

Thankfully, it was only almost.

Which was why she'd taken up Kisha's offer made mid-match and gone to meet her for coffee. It'd been a bit of a challenge to find the place - it's not like she could've just flown there as normal - so after a few wrong directions and an asking a local, she'd managed jog up only 5 minutes early instead of her usual 10. "Hey, Kisha! I hope I didn't keep you waiting."

Lost in her thoughts, Kisha continued stepping from one leg to the other, until after only a few more minutes, Prism arrived.

"Oh, no, no," she said, unobtrusively shaking off the sleeve of her coat to get a glance at the watch, "You're even earlier than planned, but anyways, thank you so much for coming. It's great to see you"

She gave Prism a friendly smile, but shortly after raised her eyebrow a little. Only now she noticed what was weird about the hummingbird Faunus. And that's already it. The Faunus part. She was aware that, especially Atlas, was not exactly tolerant to Faunus, and even if she appreciated that Prism went through the trouble of hiding it, she really didn't had to. If the employees of the coffeehouse refuses to serve her just because she's a faunus, Kisha would personally walk to them and start a fight. Or even better. She would order something, give it to Prism and let her drink it right in front of their eyes. She could already see their dumbfounded faces. Whether it would come to something like that was another question. She didn't want to ask Prism about it, she had already made acquaintance with Faunus, who were a bit more offensive when she asked about it. If the possibility arises later, she would probably mention it though.

"How about we go in?" She asked as a cold breeze blew in her face. She quickly walked to the door and opened it with a "beauty first." Another warm smile formed on her face as she gestured Prism to walk in.
