[center [font "Garamond" Give yourself some space. Close your eyes. Imagine what it would be like to start over, to find out who you could have been if you had made a different choice. Now open your eyes. Very few people ever get the chance to start over, to live up to their true potential.]]
[center [font "Garamond" Emmy Rhodes never thought she would ever get that chance. Growing up with just her father as a role model, she had never settled into good habits. Beyond barely graduation high school, she had no goals for herself or dreams to achieve. She simply found herself floating from sucky job to sucky job and bad relationship to bad relationship.]]
[center [font "Garamond" Now, after years of making bad choices, she finds herself tucked into a small apartment in a brand new state. She is completely alone, not knowing anyone. She is fleeing from a life that has caused her nothing but pain while searching for a familiarity that will allow her to call this new place home.]]
[center [font "Garamond" Living on the last of the money she had saved from working as a waitress in her old town, she finds herself at loose ends when the only reasonable job she can find is as a barista at a coffee shop down the street. She came with nothing but a suitcase full of clothes as a few valued items. Now she has to find a way to make a life for herself and to escape her past which seems to only live to haunt her.]]
[center [font "Garamond" When [b [font "Garamond" your character]] walks into the coffee shop, what choices will be made?]]

It was another eventful night. Arguments. Screaming. Slamming doors. Staying up all night. Running on no sleep. Trying to go to work the next day, but the male knew that was going to be a rough time trying to do that. Blaze looked at himself in the mirror while he shook his head some. He didn't even want to remotely remember last night. He pushed his fingers through his hair as he lit a cigarette. He let out a big puff of smoke as he sat there. He closed eyes, and felt his body start to relax. He rested his head up against the cabinet, and took in one deep breath before he decided to put his cigarette out.
Blaze pushed himself up off the floor and decided he was going to get dressed, and then he was going to go down to the coffee shop that wasn't too far from his house. He went in his room and sighed as he saw that his room was completely trashed. He shook his head and pushed past the mess, and went into his closet and grabbed some jeans and a shirt. Putting them on quickly, he saw he had a text on his phone. It was from his ex that was at his house earlier. Did he even dare read the text?
[I To: Blaze]
[I From: Mara]
[I I'm so sorry about last night. I'm not sure what came over me. I promise that won't happen again.]
Blaze rolled his eyes at the text, and exited the messages. He has no idea how many times he has heart that excuse, and it happens every time. Blaze couldn't deal with it anymore. He broke up with her last night. And he didn't even feel bad about it. Blaze was tired of the constant arguing, fighting, slamming doors, and his stuff getting ruined in the process. Blaze has bought all of his stuff all over so much, enough was enough.
Blaze grabbed his jacket and his wallet. Since the coffee place wasn't too far from his house, he decided that he would just walk. He threw his jacket on and out the door he was. He decided that he would clean his house later tonight. When he had time to sit down and think. Blaze stuffed his hands in his pockets and headed to the coffee shop. He noticed as he was walking that he continued to get looks from other females. Blaze rolled his eyes. He wasn't in the mood to deal with any thirsty females. He walked into the coffee shop and took in a deep breath. Something about the smell that made him feel at home.
Blaze looked around and saw a female at the counter, smiling at other customers. He sat down on a chair, and firmly order his drink. [b "Just a straight black coffee, please."] Then he looked back down at his phone. Not wanting to make eye contact with anyone. He left out a sigh of relief, as he felt like he was going to be here for a while.
Emmy plopped herself down on a chair in the back room, watching as a couple other baristas carried pastries and other small delectables from the back out to awaiting customers. She envied a couple of the girls she worked with. They didn't actually have to work. They used this job more like a hobby.
She herself was not that lucky. She'd struggled to get even this job. In her interview the manager had asked where she had worked prior to this and she'd had such a difficult time remembering even half the places she had been employed that the manager had felt the need to express the need for someone who would be there long term.
Emmy didn't have anywhere to go or any other job prospects so she had assured him that she wouldn't be going anywhere if she got the job. She had no friends here and had no idea what there was to do around town so this was her only form of human interaction.
It wasn't that she hated working at the coffee shop, she just wished she could do something more meaningful. Of course, she didn't have much of an education but she considered herself a fast learner. Not that that made any difference in the real world.
"Emmy, your break is up," her manager, Carl, said from his office. He hardly seemed to leave from there unless there was a problem that could absolutely not be solved by anyone else. She was sure that if it wasn't a crime to call the police for petty issues, he would have them do that before they disturbed him.
She got up and slugged out to the counter, adjusting her posture and putting on a smile once she was able to be seen by the customers. This was her life now and, she had to admit, it was still better than before she moved there.
