XStream's Cafe' and Arcade
« on: June 28, 2012, 04:57:25 AM »
So... Some time has passed since the events at the Cybernetic Arms Apartment and Casino. I know, right!? I didn't know there was a casino in the basement either!

The building was destroyed, all of the heroes were safe, and XStream found himself face to face with all of his left over clones. Once they worked things out, they came to an understanding and parted ways... well sort of. See, One is now working for the XStream Clone again. Three and Four are crashing at XStream's place, Five is running around the city calling himself XTreme (psycho isn't very original is he?), and Two ran off to become a back-up dancer for the Spice Girls. But none of that really matters anymore.

While XStream was looking for an apartment, he was contacted by Lambert, Lambert, and Darryl Law Office (and when I say "contacted," I mean they threw a brick at him when he flew by a Burger King). Seems, G'day put some stock for one of H.A.M.S.T.E.R.s daughter companies in XStream's name. The company invented a suitable replacement for high fructose corn syrup that they then marketed to fitness finatics. The company went public recently and XStream's shares became worth $750k!

Anyway, he found a place. It is a loft that resides above an old pancake house downtown. It is roomy, has lots of windows, and smells like maple syrup...mmmmhhhhh...maple syrup. Three suggested he open a Korean Pizza Lounge in the old dinning room, and Four thought it would be cool to open a Video Rental Store. That is when XStream had an idea!

*Outside the newly renovated building*


:xstream *Looks at the freshly hung sign* Wow man, I can't believe you did it. Looks good. *Looks around* Grand Opening today?

:xstream Yeah, everyone is just running a little late... They'll be here though.

:xstream I still think the Korean Pizza idea was better.

:xstream Maybe better than video rental.

:xstream Hey! I didn't know those had been replaced by soda dispensers!  :angry:

:xstream Well, I guess I should go man the register.

:xstream Shouldn't you be, like, doing superhero stuff or something? When will you have time to run a Cafe?

:xstream It's Cafe', Cafe' AND Arcade. And it is my day off. No superheroing today. Today is all about the java and Pac-Man.

:xstream Whatever, man. Do your thing. Thanks for letting us continue to crash in the loft. We are heading out for the night.

:xstream Gonna go find some Ladies!!!!!

:xstream Actually, if you guys are going to be staying, I am going to ask you to pay me rent. So you either need to get jobs, or you can help me out at the Cafe' and Arcade...and tonight is Grand Opening. So no to the ladies unless they are ordering coffee or playing Donkey Kong.

:xstream boo.... :(

The three walk into the Cafe'

:xstream I can't believe nobody came by for opening night! We made like fifty fliers. Three, you did hang all the fliers?

:xstream. Ugh... Sure boss! All of them.  :huh:

:xstream This is a waste of time. While we are waiting for the clock to strike ten, how about we make some espressos and start a round of Double Dragon!  ^_^

:xstream Three, whip us up some espressos!

:xstream  :unsure: I forgot to buy the espresso machine....

*the faint remains of what still exists of Death's Jester stumbles aimlessly through the door of XStream's Cafe and Arcade, a blood drop path following his rotten remains*  "Urghhhh..."

:xstream :blink: What is that smell!?

:xstream Shhhhsssshhhh we have a customer! How are you doing this fine evening, sir?

Death's Jester: "uuuurrrgggghhhhh?"

:xstream :xstream  :huh:

All three are silent.

:xstream Four, why don't you go get the mop and clean up our unfortunate mess, and I will prepare our first customer a cup of coffee... No doubt he needs it.

:xstream *Steps into the Cafe' from the Arcade and slips in the the trail of blood, landing on his back*.  :blink: What is that smell!?

*wanders in*

 :prev : Well, I see you'll take all types of vermin in this establishment. How swell.

*small smirk*

 :prev : Any place that'll have the brainless as a customer doesn't deserve my business.

*disappears in a blast of heavy disappointment*
My natural response to ugliness is to throw a vase, in the hopes that whatever it strikes is marred with its beauty.

:xstream Hey Three, where'd that guy go?

:xstream What guy?

:xstream I thought I saw a guy walking in as I went to the back to get the mop...

:xstream I didn't see anyone.

:xstream Well, that is disappointing.

Back at the counter

:xstream What will it be friend?

DeathsJester: uuuuurrrrgggHHHH!

:xstream  :unsure: Black coffee? Excellent choice. I will have it right out to you, maybe you would enjoy playing a round of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the Arcade Game from 1989?

:xstream Hey X! Why does it smell like rancid hamburger in here?

:xstream Three! Just help Four get that mess cleaned up.

:xstream *Starts messing with the new Mr. Coffee coffee pot.

:xstream uhm... No liquor license...How about I give you a free game of Donkey Kong while I finish your coffee?....Maybe?  *slaps side of coffee pot*

:xstream Man! I can't get away from this smell!

:xstream You don't smell that different from usual.

:xstream You think I ought to tell X the coffee pot isn't plugged in?

:xstream Whoa! Did you feel that?

:xstream That time displacement feeling? Like weeks maybe even a month has passed but we only experienced a moment? Yeah, I felt that.

:xstream *Looks puzzledly at his guest*

:deathsjester *shrugs*

*walks by outside*

 :prev : How sad. You know a busness is not doing well when it only has one patron.

*thinks briefly*

 :prev : Perhaps I should make this place explode.

*considers*

 :prev : ...

*disappears in a flash of lightning and sparks*
