    "You must not have been here long, then," Audric laughed headily and gave up trying to coax Jacky closer to him with small cups of caffeinated drinks and sugar.

    "I don't think Jackalope are supposed to exist, either, so I can't say what their dietary needs are."

    He drummed his fingers on the table and smiled at Sam. After a section, Audric took one of the cups of coffee from the drink tray and sipped it blindly, not even grimacing at the pain the heat might have caused him.

    "I didn't poison them. I assume you drink coffee or why are you here?"

    Sam frowned again before he took the closest cup to him. "...I don't really have a preference with coffee. As long as it gives me energy..." He took a sip, wincing slightly from how hot it was. He decided he would put the cup back down to let it cool for a bit.
    "And yes, I am new here. Only arrived a couple days ago..." He mumbled that last part. Jacky wasn't sniffing at the coffee anymore, but was instead looking at Audric with intrigue. Her ears twitched as she watched curiously.

    "Hey!" Audric laughed and pointed at Sam. "Same! What was your name again? Something with an S? Really normal. Shit." He snapped his fingers, then smiled largely at Sam.

    "So here for the aesthetic, then? If not you'd have gone to one of those boring coffee shops." Audric drummed his fingers more, tapped his foot. He played the whole part of someone twitchy and ready to get up and run around.

    He was tired as all Hell, but that didn't stop Audric from being antsy. He needed to move or do something stimulating, but he couldn't leave his shop. He just needed this guy to show some more energy. That would be enough for him.

    Sam frowned again when Audric said his name was normal. Well... he agreed but it was one of the few things he always remembered.
    "Honestly, yeah." He said with a nod. "I don't recall every seeing a place like this before. So, I thought if I was gonna go and get coffee, may as well be a bit interesting." He didn't sound that enthusiastic.
    Jacky was creeping closer to Audric as she sniffed curiously. She stopped once again, observing him with ears twitching. She was a surprisingly curious creature.

    Audric continued pretending not to pay attention to Jacky, waiting for her to creep close enough that he could snatch her and cuddle her as all fuzzy creatures deserved to be handled.

    He nodded as Sam spoke, only halfway registering what the other man was saying. He took another scolding sip of his coffee, the burning in his throat helping to wake him up further.

    "You sound so excited about it too," Audric deadpanned. "You into books? They got books. Or weird trinkets. Oh, you can get this cool skull mug, or grotesque looking pastries and cakes. Those are my favorite, personally."

    Sam didn't look all that interested as Audric talked about all there was to the cafe. That was until he mentioned the pastries and cakes. Suddenly, Sam looked more awake than he has been this entire time. He slowly sipped his coffee again.
    "Uh no, I don't... read." He sounded somewhat hesitant to say this. He then turned back to the main task at hand. "...What was that about pastries and cakes?" His voice also showed keen interest.
    Jacky finally shuffled close to Audric. She seemed to be... waiting? It was almost like she knew what Audric wanted to do? Or, it could be assumed it isn't the first time this has happened. Does she remember more than Sam does? It may never be known...

    "You don't read? How old are you again?" Audric snatched Jacky up and cuddled her with all the gentleness of a small child, grinning from ear to ear.

    "Yeah, they have pastries 'n' shit. Didn't y–, oh, right you weren't at the counter. I hope you don't mind fake gore in food formation."

    Jacky would tense up for only a moment before her body relaxed in Audric's arms. She even moved her head a bit so her antlers wouldn't prod into Audric. Her fur is very soft.
    Sam's eyebrow twitched; partly from Audric acting like a child with the jackalope, and also because of the comment about his age.
    "I think I can handle that." He says this but, in fact, he would more than likely not be able to handle that.

    Audric pointed to his own eyebrow over the lens of his sunglasses. "You eyebrow is twitching just a little right there. Are you positively, absolutely, positive that you can handle it?"

    Even as he was asking though, Audric was getting up, setting Jacky on the table and going off to order yet more.

    He brought back a realistic enough looking baby head with dead eyes and some gore at the neck. It was a pastry, but Audric wasn't kidding when he'd said it was gory.

    "Eat it," Audric said like a dare, standing at Sam's side.

    Sam was about to retaliate to the comment about his eyebrow, but Audric was gone before he could.
    Once he returned with the pastry, Sam visibly pales. He really underestimated the detail of the food. He gulped. "Are you... sure there's nothing else?" He sounded like he was about to throw up.
    Meanwhile, Jacky sniffed at the pastry. She wasn't attempting to eat it, but from how much she sniffed at it, she definitely wanted to. Probably wouldn't be good for her, though.
