the cracks in our memories can't change the bonds in our hearts
to Simple and Clean, an au post-3D Kingdom Hearts roleplay.
After Xehanort removed the chains of memories linked not to people, but to objects and events - the keyblade, the Princesses of Heart, and Kingdom Hearts itself - the heroes found themselves living in a world where they are... ordinary. Where they are highschool and college students, parents or siblings, and living in a world not too far removed from our own.
Casting his spell cost Xehanort strength and time, but he's begun to move - and not everyone had their memories pulled. How will the worlds react to the return of the darkness when the light doesn't know to stand against it?
Xehanort's awakening is at hand, and with it has come the beginning of the destruction of his spell.
10/08/17 First major site event has begun! Xehanort has awoken and he's hellbent on ensuring his plans will not be interfered with. A halloween writing contest has started as well, so be sure to check them both out.
It had been about 2 weeks since he started coming to get sea-salt from the Starlight Diner, something that made him completely broke. The owner was really cool guy that he always talked to, usually about Lea or Xion, sometimes it would be about his brother, really anything that came up.
He walked in a smile spreading on his face as the Diner's usual scent came through, a scent that almost felt homely familiar. He walked over to the manager's station, that also just so happens to be the drop off for drive thru. He leaned voer the counter a grin on his face, blue shorts matching his blue video game shirt. "Leon!" He spoke excitedly almost sounding like a kid, small tilt of his head, "Guesss what."

Leon smiled seeing Roxas walk in. He'd become one of his favorite customers and he was always glad to see the kid.
"Hey Roxas." said Leon.
He paused at Roxas asked him to guess.
"Guess? I was never good at guessing games. Maybe you should just tell me." saids Leon.
He grinned as he took a seat at the counter letting Roxas share with him whatever he was going to say. This clearly was important to him and he wanted to listen. He had plenty of staff to handle other customers right now. And he wanted to listen to whatever Roxas had to say.
The big owner appeared and taking a seat leaning in just slightly. The blonde head gave a slight smile and whispered ever softly, "I wanted to take on that job offer you offered when we first met. So any position still there? You did promise a month or two." He gave a snap of the finger expressing just slightly how he excited to finally come to this conclusion. To work for the one who made greatest Seasalt all of town, who was really quite the figure, he thought about this for days.

"I was hoping you would. I'd have held it for longer if I knew you were really interested." said Leon.
"Well, then I'll just need to paperwork brought up for you to sign. Nothing too major just mostly agreeing to keep quiet about any recipes, ingredients and covering all the other bases too. I trust you Roxas and I trust my staff. But you can't be too careful. Someone at my old diner tried to steal a recipe and sell it. The guy got lucky to get little jail time and a fine." said Leon.
He sighed and moved to grab the contract. It wasn't too long just a few pages.
"I'll have a copy you can take with you if you want to reread any of this later. Or if you wish to read it and sign later. This is just to cover legal stuff. I'm not a lawyer but I hired a good one when coming here." said Leon.
(ooc: i have no idea all of what would be in a contract like this really. so you can have skim it, ask questions, whatever. or time skip to him signing it and skip all the boring stuff. xD
The old man grinned, telling Roxas he was happy the kid agreed, the kid felt his heart raise a beat. He really was waiting? Wasn't he? He explained about the paperwork and contract, what was all in it. Roxas blue eyes followed the brown hair as he crossed the room shuffled some papers and pulled out this what seemed to be pretty thin paper placing it in front of him. He explained that there'll be a copy if he wanted to re-read later, or simply read and sign later, and etc about having a lawyer.
He peered down at the contract, it seemed for the most part exactly what you'd expect from terms of service, don't do this.. Don't do that. Rules. rules. Reminders. Rules. He skimmed it before signing each section that was required, then sliding it over. Giving a smile that looked as natural as he could get, "Guess this means you're my boss, doesn't it?" He asked pitch of excitement in his voice. "So boss, what you want me to do first?"
ooc: You know I was thinking about it, know how Roxas hates being manipulated and used. I was thinking he might just misread Leon manipulating him to get him closer and get to know him.

Leon smiled as the boy took it and signed it after looking it over a bit. He paused handing him a folder with a copy of the contract.
"You can take this home with you. It also has the store hours." asked Leon.
He pulled an availability sheet out handing it to him.
"Fill this out to let me know when you want to work. I'm sure when school starts up you'll want to work mostly evenings and weekends. That'd give you time to do some homework and studying too." said Leon.
"Well after you fill that sheet out we should find out what you want to do. Cashier? Chef? Waiter? A little bit of everything?" asked Leon.
Okay the copy held store hours, he accepted it after the old man explained it all to him, gently he placed it on the counter in thought. "That sounds good." He answered awkwardly not realizing how much work was getting work. "Uhh evenings and weekends.... I won't mind." The voice came out fast and almost a slight stutter, he was really going to do this. Work here, get sweet sea-salt, and was really doing this. It was his choice, had thought about it all this time. Each ice-cream, this man's can't be beat. He gotta get some of that pay and worker discount.
He began to fill out the schedule, paperwork. It was like homework, only more official. The male spoke over his work asking what he was interested in, he looked up kinda confused thinking about his options. The chef would learn all his recipes, just didn't have to tell a soul. He could always cook Ventus, Cloud, Lea, andor Xion meals.. Just don't spill out the secret. Then waiter would meet out with the people, gree them friendly lead them place to place. Cashier, same thing? Only standing behind the register, wait was that wrong? Crap, he had no idea. If he was the chef would he burn things, if he was the waiter would he scare customers away? "Umm.. Uhh.. What positions you have open? Or uhh had in mind?" Crap, he didn't know. maybe the guy let him try everything? "How about little of everything, just uhh, figure out where I belong?"

"Well I'm flexbile on hours so if you change your mind or want different days. Like say your favorite show's on weekend or you want to go to a concert or something. You could have the day off or that day work a morning shift. I want you to like the job and not feel like you can't do other fun stuff you want to do." said Leon.
He paused and shrugged.
"I guess all of them right now. I have a few positions taken but we did just open up. So I'm still looking for ne people." said Leon.
He nodded at Roxas's suggestion.
"That sounds good. And if you can't decide you're welcome to help out at all 3 if you like. Or do different jobs on differrent days." said Leon.
"Okey dokey boss." He gave a slight thumbs up in agreement, the agreement was to work all the jobs bounce to bounce figure it out. He paused in thought, "Soo... What do you need today?" He asked uncertain what to do now sliding the extra copy to the side out of the way, before walking around behind the counter to stand next to Leon within the guy's grasp.
ooc: Did you want to do a time skip of the First day? Where like end of the day? after all the training etc? and the two are cleaning up alone, bonding.
Cashier? Cashier it is." He answer with a slight fist pump to his hand in challenging pose. The day went fast he took the orders messed up one or two, then just instantly had it, almost felt naturally dealing with people's final totals and cash.
The day was just about over with and his body kinda ached, kinda pumped for more? If that was easy to explain? He felt so wide awake yet so tired same time,just about finishing mopping up the floor hard enough to cause large bubbles on the back cooking tiles. He stopped after finishing the last corner giving a smile, sweat brow wipe, turning his attention to the old man as he walked up.
With a compliment a pat on the back Roxas looked up with a smile that for once felt actually genuine, "Of course' I'm the best there is, well for a start.". He leaned the mop against the wall, accepting the ice-cream, "Best all over town." He answered lightly accepting the ice-cream before walking up to a counter to lean on n a more relax position. From there he gradually opened it enjoying the feeling of pride swelling up inside of himself for finally working an actual job, for the greatest ice-cream maker in the whole town.
With bite filled with that sea-salt flavor, he swallowed the bites with a small breath of relief. "8am tomorrow? Ehh? Boss?" He asked with a slight grin and head tilt prepped for tomorrow.
"Really think so?" He gave a small joyous chuckle, "Won't be the same without you, you're pretty cool." Ate about half the ice-cream enjoying it.
"Day off? Leon, it is my first day! I won't quit on you that easy. I'm here to stay." The hands moved pretending to pull up a shirt to expose muscle as if prepping to push his hardest to get the work done. He gave a small yawn leaning back, "Getting up early, doing paperwork, staying late..." He sighed calmly thinking on it, thinking on Lea, guy was hardwork cool too. "You are tough, how do you do it."

"Well without me this place wouldn't be here and people would be looking for different jobs. But I appreciate the sentiment." said Leon.
"I appreciate the enthiusiasm. Well if you want to be here then I'll see you at 8 o'clock sharp tomorrow." said Leon.
"I just do it. Sometimes I don't get a lot of sleep. I have a diner to run and a son to take care of. But it's all worth it. And sometimes I'll just take a day or two off to sleep. I mean I own the place. I technically don't have to come in here but I do. Because I want people to know I care about this place and I like working here. Cooking, meeting the people. I get to do more than just be a chef in my old place. Sometimes I wouldn't even get to see the people who ate my food. But now I can." said Leon.
He listened to the story about how the diner offered different opportunity for Leon. He finished up the ice-cream licking up the leftover mess before skillfully throwing the trash in the only tashcan with trash inside. "Well I better get going, my Dad going to kill me if I'm out after 9:30pm, he already thinks 8pm pushing it." He pushed himself away from the table, picked up the trashbag opening it wide for Leon to throw his Popsicle away. Once the male did so he'll close it, give a thumbs up announcing. "8am!"before running out the door, a slight higher skip of energy than first entering the establishment.
Thus began the Leon and Roxas student/mentor relationship, either clueless truth.
