PostSubject: The Huckleberry Inn   Mon Jun 29, 2015 12:34 pm

A medium-sized inn that was built along the most-traveled road many years ago, it has seen its fair share of travelers, soldiers, scholars and pirates. Owned by an an elderly man, Heirn Huckleberry, and his wife, Oul Huckleberry, the building is designed to be cozy and comfortable, like a small home.
Five individuals are currently employed here, each with their own specialties.
Heirn serves as the financial manager of the inn, and also as its night-time bartender, his dexterity as of yet unmarred by old age.
Oul spends most of her time continuing to dish out her special recipes for the hungry guests, and helps out with the cleaning as well. She usually gets help from the younger employees, due to her diminished stamina.
Larissa, the daughter of a Berkshire family sent to work here, tends the bar and the kitchen, having mostly learned culinary skills back home.
Trais, who may as well be living here, mostly cleans the rooms, but also serves as the sole waiter, acting as the in-between for the kitchen and the people.
Dhaein, who certainly IS living here, is essentially the man who keeps track of everything besides money, taking guest registrations and making sure everything proceeds as planned.

In the dead of summer, when the nautical nature of Monteport becomes rather attractive to many inlanders, the inn sees most of its guests, and indeed, it is very busy these days.

The morning was like any other at the Huckleberry Inn:
Sunny, bright, and chock-full of work to do.
Dhaein was the first to rise, as usual, and he took a moment to stare out the window, watching the port town wake up.
After a few minutes, satisfied, he threw on his uniform - a grey, long shirt tucked into black pants, with a yellow vest over it - and left his room, going to wake up those 'young kids'.
Reaching the room in question, he rapped on the door twice, calling out to the sleeping residents, "Hey, Trais, Larissa, rise and shine!"
He lingered by the door for a moment, waiting for the grumblings that would confirm that they heard him. Once they came, he nodded to himself and headed out to the common room. The Huckleberries would be up soon enough. They were old enough to have that liberty.
It didn't take long for the tables to be set and the bar to be prepared. It never really did, which Dhaein was glad for. It gave him a reason to rib his two 'apprentices' once they dragged themselves out into the lobby.
Trais appeared first, still rubbing his eyes and scratching at his mussed-up hair. Bed-head looked absolutely beastly on him, and so Dhaein had made a point of carrying a comb around in case he needed a touch-up. He did so now, steadying Trais with a hand on the shoulder and making a few passes just to straighten it out.
"Hey, cut that out.." Trais mumbled, weakly trying to push Dhaein away.
"No way," Dhaein replied, "I'm not letting the guests see you looking like such a slob."
Satisfied once more, Dhaein let him go, waiting for Larissa to appear, so he could give her his check-over.
It took a few more moments, but she entered the room, looking much more well-kept than Trais. Clearly those extra moments were spent making sure she was ready. "I made sure to tidy the bed this time, Mr. Dhaein." She told him with an 'ok' sign.
Nodding, Dhaein turned away from her, walking towards the double doors that separated the quiet interior from the often-busy port town outside.
Unlocking the doors, he pushed them open, letting the sounds of the town in. A smile crept onto his face, even as the sun momentarily blinded him. Today was just like any other, and that was alright.
"Alright, kids," He barked out, turning back to face them again. "Show's on, let's get moving."
Before they could hustle, however, the elderly owners, Mr. and Mrs. Huckleberry entered the room, with the former supporting the latter with a steady arm.
Mr. Huckleberry beckoned to Trais, telling him, "We don't have many drinkers today, kiddo. You're gonna be learning those times tables today."
He smiled as Trais groaned, and turned to Dhaein. "Keep it smooth, alright, Danish?"
Dhaein nodded in reply, smirking at the use of his nickname; It had been the result of a mishearing during Dhaein's application by the old man. As luck would have it, Dhaein was rather fond of the pastry, and the name stuck.
Trais followed the elder man to the back room, resigning himself to a long day of math and counting coins, and the two women retreated to the kitchen to start breakfast for the many guests who would be waking up soon.
Dhaein took his place at the small desk that held the guest register and billing information, and waited. He would be there for an hour or so, but he kept a little metal sphere at his station just for those purposes.
As he spent the time playing with the ball, morphing it into various shapes, his mind drifted from mundane subject to subject. As it had for the past two years, and as he hoped it always would.
The Huckleberry Inn was now open for the day.

A woman pokes her head in the door, her round glasses glaring from the sun outside. "Hellooo?"

Several assorted men and women turn to look at her from their seats, and one even gives her a friendly wave.

She takes a step inside, sighing in relief. "Phew, the last few places I walked into were empty. Like my stomach."

"Well, we can help with that." Dhaein tells her, approaching with a menu in hand.

Dhaein walks off for a moment to attend to the other customers, but returns shortly. He stands by patiently, waiting for her order.

The woman seems unsure of what to order. "Hmmm... What would you suggest?"

"The scalloped potatoes are a favorite around here, for one. For another, there's quite a few different soups you could try." He points out.

"Hmmm, potatoes are always good...." She taps her chin, thinking.

He waits another moment for her to think.

"Got any pork? I could go for a porkroast sandwich, I think. But but not, I think the potatoes might be enough in a meal portion. Hmmm, but then again.... " She thumbs through the menu a little more, undecided still.

"We could put the potatoes on the porkroast, if that's what you'd like to do." He smirks a little.

She pauses, staring at him. "Yes. Do that. Twice. Oh my god."

"Two potato and porkroast sandwiches it is, then?" He puts his pen to his notepad, giving her a wider smile.

"Yes." She looked ready to drool all over the table.

"Heh, well, you'll have those sandwiches shortly." Giving her a nod, he goes to relay the order to the kitchen. He returns again to tell her, "They'll be ready in about five or ten minutes."

"Nooo problem." With business taken care of for now, he quickly changes tack, as per usual. "So I don't think we've introduced ourselves yet. I'm Dhaein Camaxi, manager of this fine establishment. And your name?"

"Odd jobs, eh? Guild stuff or just stuff-stuff?" He pulls an empty chair from a nearby table, taking a casual seat.

"Who knoooows?" She shrugs mysteriously, taking a look at what the other people in the room are eating.
