Megana's alarm went of, well it wasn't really a alarm. It was Lucky that jumped on her bed and started to lick her face. Meg sneezed into Lucky's face which was answer with a little bark and a playful growl. ''Yes yes! I am awake.. I knew taking you home was a bad idea'' she said and got a questioning face as answer. The young female looked at the time, it was 8:00 am. ''I knew you would wake me too early, but this means I have more time'' she said and got out of her bed.
Her morning ritual wasn't one that took a lot of time, she got to her kitchen where she made a cup of coffee and grabbed a quick snack for Lucky, which would walk around her and turn around like a puppy and almost make her fall at least four times. ''When are you gonna learn to keep a little distance luck?'' she asked the Stafford and shook her head. While her coffee was cooling down, she would take a quick shower and get dressed in her daily jeans, a simple shirt and of course her woolen vest. Then, while she brushed her hair, she would get a visitor in her bathroom, Lucky, who would sit down and look at her, waiting. She quickly would make a loose bun in her hair and then walk out, again followed by the dog. She got him his breakfast and sipped from her coffee while also eating her own breakfast, which pretty much was some cereal with milk and a apple.
Around 9:30 am, Megana was completely done with everything and she would grab her shoes, a sign for Lucky to grab his harness and put it in front of her feet. Meg laughed and petted the dog. ''Why did they ever abandon you.. You are so great'' she said to the dog which replied with a bark. After putting on her shoes, she grabbed the harness and put it on Lucky. She grabbed the line and her coat, scarf and fingerless gloves, put those on and with a quick check if she had her keys and of course her bag with her lunch and wallet, she walked out of her little apartment and went downstairs to head out towards the shelter.
"so there i was right" Ash said, having been up a few hours alright, well before most people thought about getting up. he wore a white t-shirt and a black leather jacket, worn, faded jeans. "im sitting there, watching his ugly old woman trying to hobble along" he stood in front of some younger kid, having caught him on the street. "and what do i realize?" he starts laughing. "its Patrick, he's dressed up as his grandmother" the young kid starts laughing as well. "see" Ash said. "i might be clueless at first, but eventually i get wise to whats going on" he lost the smile then, and grabbed the guy by the front of his shirt and pulled him in close. "there is a school a block away from here, and this is a high traffic area, and i know your slinging. i catch you around this area again with that crap, and im going to beat you senseless.. you feel me?" Ash asked, getting a quick nod. "good, now take off" pushing him, the idiot dealer turned and booked it out of the neighborhood. running his hand through his short hair, shaking his head in annoyance, he drove his hands into his pockets and started walking, hitting the bus station ten minutes later that was a couple blocks over, he checked the map to see what bus number to take to get to his Community Service gig, he then checked the time and sat down.. he was going to be late, no matter how much he worked it out, he was going to be late.
sitting on the bench, waiting for the bus he leaned back, and pulled out his earbuds, connected them and soon had a song playing through his phone. he'd been with his buddies, he usually hung out with them but that night they decided to get a little drunk and go nuts, he went along just to be back-up in case he was needed to help carry someone, little did he know he'd be caught while his buddies took off, apparently not that drunk since they scattered like roaches in the light. so he was arrested, sent before the judge and blah blah blah, he now had over a months worth of community service to do. of course he could have gotten time knocked off, but they wanted him to give up the others, but he wasnt a rat, not when it came to his friends, he might be pissed that they'd screwed him, but that didnt mean he'd narc on them.
when the bus finally arrived, he stepped on, and sat down just as Imagine Dragons- Thunder began playing as the bus made its stops and pick ups, soon the bus was full and heading along. it was 10 o clock by then. "shit" he mumbled to himself, first day of community service and he was already going to be ten minutes late.
Megana and Lucky quickly made it to the shelter. Megana opened the door and smiled when she saw Daisy sit on the front desk. ''Desk duty?'' Megana asked as she unleashed Lucky, who then jumped on the little couch they had placed in the entrance hall of the Shelter. Daisy smiled. ''Yes, my doctor told me to ease on it..'' the six month's pregnant female said and both females laughed. ''Anything interesting going on?'' Megana asked as she leaned against the desk. She was early since she actually started at 10 o clock. ''Yeah, we have a new volunteer for a month or so.. Depends if he is going to do a good job'' Daisy said and handed Megana the file. Megana smiled and took it over. ''Oooh, reading to do while getting us some coffee'' she said and started to walk towards the cafeteria. ''Tea for me please!'' Daisy said and Meg put her thumb's up in the air while opening the file.
While getting coffee for herself and tea for her co-worker, Megana readed the file about Ash Collins. She looked at the picture and put sugar in her coffee. When Lucky suddenly barked behind her, she looked up and smiled. ''I know boy.. Sorry'' she said, she looked at the clock and saw she had to get starting. She quickly grabbed the file, the coffee and the tea and walked back to the entrance. ''He isn't here yet?'' she asked and Daisy shook her head. ''Okay, beep me up when he is'' Megana said with a smile and gave Daisy the file and the tea and then walked to where the animals were. Before entering, she put in earplugs and then walked into the quarantine part where the dogs were that were just new, she headed to the small kitchen, put her coffee down there and grabbed the big food container and did her walk around the place with the dog food first.
hoping off the Bus when it finally reached it's spot, he sprinted around the front of the bus, and sprinted across the street, his eyes catching the cars going through the street, as he sped forward, right into traffic forcing the cars to hit the brakes and the horns blaring as fingers went flying, which he smirked and waved back happily before hitting the other side of the street, which he slowed down to a walk as he saw the shelter, the place he'd be spending a lot of time at apparently. pulling the earplugs out of his ears, and shutting the music off he stuffed them into his pocket as he walked in. "no, you need to listen to me lady" some guy stood there at the front of the desk, making Ash figure he was late if they were open already. "you have my dog back there, and i want him back now or there is going to be some hell to pay, i was told he was here" Ash moved up to the counter, seeing the woman behind it was pregnant, very much so, he nodded. "Ash Collins, i was to start volunteering today, and my bus was late which is why im late, sorry" the guy standing there turned to glare at Ash. "piss off, i was here first and im not leaving til i get my damn dog back!" Ash shook his head. "calm down and you'll be told this is a shelter, not the pound, your in the wrong place and carrying the wrong attitude"
the guy wasnt having a great morning, and now this he went to grab at Ash. "who the hell are.." before the air rushed out of his lungs as Ash drove his fist into the solar plexus, knocking the air from the guys lungs. grabbing his arm, he twisted it around behind the man's back before slamming his face into the counter. "Apologize to the mama to be" the guy gasped and wheezed "so..sorry" he managed to get out. "good" Ash said, holding his arm still. "so now, she's going to explain to you if your dog is here what you need to do, and if he's not here, where you can go, then im going to escort you to the door and see you out.. we clear on that? good" not waiting for an answer.
When Ash walked in, Daisy had already pushed on a secret bell that would ring in the back alone to tell the other workers there was trouble. Megana, working fast as always, was done half way when she heard the bell. ''Lucky, desk now'' she said quickly and the dog would run towards the front of the shelter as fast he could. Megana followed the dog but Lucky was quicker, opening the door that leaded towards the front when Ash just had finished handling with the male.
Megana followed quickly after Lucky. ''Okay, Lucky down... Looks like it is dealt with already'' she said and first looked at Daisy, when she nodded she turned to the two males. ''Ash Collins I asume?'' she asked the male that was holding the man. ''Please release the male, I think he will cooperate now..'' she said and gave him a friendly smile. ''I'm Megana, this is Daisy.. Please could you follow me?'' she asked. ''Daisy, Lucky stays with you, he knows how to open the doors so he can come get me when it's needed'' she said and then turned to the dog. ''Lucky, Protect Daisy'' she said and Lucky right away went to sit right next to the desk and was clearly not going to move again until said differently.
