welcome to destiny's strata!

PREMIUM - MATURE

The town seems like any other town. Simple, quiet on the exterior but digging beyond the surface will reveal a whole new world of deception, lies, and most of all, power. This is where the rich come to raise their families. But they all have their dirty little secrets. Isolating themselves from the rest of the world is the norm here, weeding out the 'bad seeds'. The children are raised with a sense of 'being privileged' and their parents encourage this. They go to private universities where they are taught to rule the world.

But there is one little problem...

The government says they have to allow a certain number of scholarships every year to the underprivileged kids or risk the closure of their schools. On the far end of town lives the poor, the down-trodden, and the downright scum of the earth, or, at least, that is how the upper class sees them. Mana Marrow tries to hide this embarrassment in their town but now, with the government intervening, they will have to allow some of these young adults to mix with their own precious, spoiled, and pampered offspring. The town comes together to form 'The Hetaireia', a secret society for the Elite, and figures out a way to make this work in their favor, however, and soon the lucky chosen underprivileged youth begin their university studies only to find that all is not as it seems. A hierarchy is born and they find themselves at the bottom rung, treated as less than second class citizens.

Will you be one of the privileged students that seem to rule the schools?
Or will you be one of the poor, who struggle for the acceptance that they may never find?
Or maybe you will be an adult, working in the town, the schools, or at the factory that supplies jobs for little pay and hard labor?

The choice is yours, so choose wisely!

This was a coffee shop. But Shuu wasn't here for coffee. No, he was here for a grande (or whatever the hell the middle sized cup was here now) green tea frappuccino. Maybe a cheese danish as well.

It was Sunday. His little sister had a play date for once, since he managed to finally coax her out from her shell enough to convince her to give it a try with the outgoing Nattie McNamara. Something that could either go really well, or explode in everyone's faces. He hoped for the former, but just in case, he was also kind of waiting for a call on his phone begging for him to pick Camix up from the neighbors'.

Being a P.E. teacher was great in that he didn't ever have to give essays or written exam or even homework -EVER-. Supervise sports, games, maybe the occasional club activity or actual team, if anyone gave enough of a crap. Considering none of that was going on, he had a pretty free day.

And he was a bit bored.

Jae had just finished cleaning out all the blenders and things, when he noticed a customer standing there. His eyes softened as he wiped his wet hands on his apron, and headed to the other counter.

Usually he just made the drinks, but seeing as Evan was no where to be seen or any other of his coworkers for that matter, he thought he'd give taking orders a try. Putting on his ever glib half smile, Jae called to the man over the cash register, "May I help you?"

"Yeah, I'd like a grande or medium-sized green tea frappuccino, please. With extra whipped cream." Not a very 'smiley' person himself, Shuu flashed the barista a fleeting one, there and gone so quick, that kind that if you blink you'll miss it. He did appreciate that this guy wasn't all unnaturally chipper and fake-happy or whatever. Sometimes, for whatever reason, those people seemed to like to populate and work at the coffee shops he liked to go to. This was so much the better, more his style. Calm. Understated.

Also, not crowded at all. Was there even anyone else behind the counter?

Ringing up the order, the total came up on the screen. "$4.05." Waiting for the man to either scan his card or hand him money, Jay went through the steps in his head of making this particular drink. He had seen it made thousands of times.

A sudden thought popped in to his head and he just couldn't keep it to himself, "I've seen you here many times, but you order never coffee.."
