Second Shadow

It's already been about five days... Either I'm here for real, or this is a really long dream. Too long, actually. Still haven't remembered anything, either. How long does it usually take, anyway?

It was kind of cool to explore the town for a bit, but damn, it's sure getting cold out. I ended up applying for a job at some café. It's called 'Dee-moys' or something like that. I didn't think they'd hire me, but it looks like they aren't too picky about who works there. Gotta wonder about a place that hires amnesiacs, though. At least this way I don't have to go to school... right?

According to the chart, I'm supposed to be rooming with some guy named Maguri, but I haven't seen him around. Do we just keep missing each other somehow? I mean, I don't really mind or anything, since the rooms aren't exactly huge, but it'd be nice to at least see this mystery roommate for once.

Huh... I gotta say, these journal things are pretty useful. Any idea who made them?

Look, I'm the only normal teacher left. Humor me.

Hn. If they didn't hire amnesiacs, who would they hire? Since the islands full of us it seems.

There's people outside of the Ari Apartments, right? I don't think they're amnesiacs or anything. I'd have thought that the jobs'd be reserved for them instead.

Don't expect to remember anything too fast. It takes a really long time to remember even tiny things like your last name.

Damn. I guess I should've expected that.

How long is 'really long'?

Well, I've been here for almost two years and I haven't remembered all that much, if that gives you an idea.

Well... Crap.

What did you do all that time?

*shrug* Try to not let all the crazy stuff that goes on here get to me, I guess.

Cafe Demois? I used to be employed there until just recently.

Though the manager is somewhat lenient, he tends to focus a lot of attention on small aesthetic details. Which doesn't do anything to explain why he would hire someone such as myself in the first place.

Really? Why'd you quit?

Small aesthetic details?

I decided that it'd be for the best if I switched to a job that was similar to the one I had back home. Additionally, most of the waitresses that I knew when working there have since left. It seemed the appropriate time to move on.

Yes, like the work uniforms and decorative flourishes on some of the more popular pastries.

I guess that makes sense. I wouldn't want to keep working at a place if all of my friends left, either. What are you doing now?

Ack-- Don't tell me the guy's uniform is...

I'm one of the town's patrolmen.

??
I'm not sure. We never had any male waiters while I was working there.

A patrolman, huh? If you're a patrolman now, what were you back home?

I guess I'll just have to see when I start working, then... Hope it's nothing too embarrassing.

A Locrian sergeant in the Oracle Knights Intelligence Division. Suffice it to say I was searching for an important historical artifact as well as accompanying an ambassadorial group. Two nations back home were at war, and the mission was in part an effort to encourage peaceful relations between the two.

Wow, so you were pretty essential where you came from... Even though I'm not really sure about any of those things you named, it sounds very important.

H-hey, what's with the sudden silence?

The mission itself, as well as finding said artifact, are important, yes, but I'm not a particularly high-ranking soldier within the Order.

As I mentioned previously, we never had any male waiters while I was working there. Therefore, I'm not familiar with the appearance of the corresponding uniform.

But if you were sent on an important mission like that, you've got to be an important person, right? Or at least someone who performs well on stuff like that.

Well, the girl's uniforms aren't too bad, right...? Damn it, should've paid more attention while I was there.

I suppose I perform well enough. It might also have something to do with the fact that I had already been traveling with the other individuals involved.

It's a rather complicated story.

No. They're fine, it's just that I never once felt like the uniform quite suited me.
ashadyguy
Dec. 19th, 2009 06:33 am (UTC)
Sounds like it.

Guess I'll just have to go in for work and hope for the best...

Good luck, and please give my regards to the manager.

Yeah, I'll be sure to!
