"My mouth is shut." Her hoof motioned across her mouth to simulate a zipper. Cadance turned and looked at Choc again. "Uh... Im sorry. If we are making you nervous we can eat outside... Sorry, I really didn't mean to surprise you or cause an unnecessary anxiety."

Choc shook his head with a forced grin. "It's no problem Princess." Choc decided that being in such close proximity to two of Equestria's rulers was increasingly dangerous. "I'm heading into the back room for a tick, I suppose I can trust you all not to rob me?" As Choc spoke he took off his apron and walked into the back room, making sure to lock the door behind him.

Not even ten seconds had passed from Choc's departure when the doors open to his shop once more. Giving a faint yawn, a dark coated earth pony walks into the room and goes straight to the counter, not even noticing the other patrons sitting there. Her mane is a mess, her eyes are baggy, and the only lively part of her is her marble colored python wrapped around her shoulders. In her saddlebag a tissue could be seen sticking out, it's need for her seasonal allergies. As she stops by the counter, she lets out a small sneeze; reaching for her tissue to cover her nose. "Hello? Anyone back there? Looking to buy something up here."

Noticing the door opening, Broadshield swiveled his head towards the door, noticing the brown mare at the door. She looked frazzled and tired. On top of that, the poor mare was sneezing, which probably was from allergies. She then trots up to the counter, she then sneezes and pulls out a tissue to cover her nose. "Hello? Anyone back there? Looking to buy something up here." she asked. "Yeah, the stallion in charge just went to the back to do something, shouldn't be too long" Broadshield responded.

Meanwhile, Choc was pacing around in the back room, wondering wether he should go back out. "Should I risk it?" Choc asked himself. "On one hand, this week has been pretty tight on funds, but on the other hand, I might accidentally shift, and get chucked into the castle dungeons. Sure, the Princesses seem happy with things, but who knows? They might be suspicious. Or worse yet, they might know already." Choc dunked his head into a bucket that he used for mopping the floor. "No. I got this. I've had such a good run since the blackmail incident in Manhattan, I can't give up now." Choc composed himself, checked the mirror to make sure he was looking presentable, and walked back into the main shopfront, noticing a frazzled mare waiting at the counter. "Sorry about that, had to go to the loo. What would you like miss?" Choc asked as he put on his apron and tried not to acknowledge the two Princesses which were causing him so much stress.

Celestia looked over at Cadance’s suggestion, about to get up when Choc spoke and went in the back room. She blinked guiltily, about to voice that very guilt to her niece when another customer came in. She did not look well in the least, Celestia reflected. The princess was relieved when the stallion at the counter came back, both out of sympathy for the sneezing mare, and to be honest, she had been a bit worried that the stallion would escape out the back door just to avoid her and Cadance. So Celestia went back to peacefully eating her donut, which was more delicious by the bite

Cadance tried to initiate a conversation to distract herself from the storekeeper.
"So I see there hasn't been any trouble lately. No evil monsters trying to take over Equestria... at least no news of that reached the Crystal Empire. Maybe it has become so common that they never win that nopony tries to report it anymore." The princess of love winked and took another bite.

"Oh, hello um..." Nivalia replies to the shopkeeper. "May I have a French vanilla coffee, cream and sugar? And a-a... ACHOO!" The mare sneezes, even more forcefully this time. She manages to cover her mouth and turn in a different direction; but those with a keen eye could vaguely spy a horn poking through her mane. Nivalia wipes her forehead, making the horn disappear just as fast as it showed up. "Excuse me. Um, a banana but muffin please?" The earth pony goes into her saddlebag and picks up the right amount of payment. Meanwhile, Caprica (the python) simply moves its head around the room, tongue flicking with nonchalance as it observes the others in the shop.

Choc, who had grown accustomed to spotting out secrets over his years of running, spotted the horn in the "earth pony's" mane, and had a sneaking suspicion that he wasn't the only shapeshifter in the store. But, he kept his mouth shut. Best not to draw attention to this little bakery, less somepony starts to dig aroumd in my past. "Sorry ma'am. We only do regular coffee here. If your heart is set on it though, might I suggest the Magic Bean, a few blocks from here. They make excellent coffee over there. Anyway, one Bannana Nut muffin coming right up. That'll be two and a half bits." It was at this moment that Choc noticed the python rapped around the mare's neck, and prepared to grab his anti-poison magic book if things went haywire.

Suddenly the doors to the bakery sudden burst open with a bang and three ponies strutted into the establishment. Leading the three at the centre was a light blue earth pony whose face was framed with her white bob cut-style of a mane and her long white tail poked out from her black, white and pink dress. Despite coming indoors she didn't remove her hot pink sunglasses and each stride she took was filled with attitude and sharp movements. On her left was her Make Up Stylist and on the right was her Manedresser; it seemed that the trio were either on a break from a shoot or had just finished one for today.

The trio made their way right up to behind Nivalia and proclaimed, "I, Photofinisch, haf arrifed!" Her voice was thick with an Austrian accent and was clear that she was not the most patient of ponies, especially with a reputation of telling and expecting other ponies to 'go' away instantly. So much so that she had even called over Nivalia's shoulder before she had the chance to even leave the counter yet, "You zer! Zree Almond Croissants - make schure zat zer aren't  too many almonds on it. Also two black coffees, one varm, one hot and one vhite coffee vith soy milk - extra hot! Quickly zer isn't much time!"

Though the celebrity couldn't see it, her Manestylist standing behind her cast an apologetic smile at the employee of the store but it was quickly washed off her face when Photofinish turned to the two accompanying her. The mare was muttering - it sounding vastly more hushed than just before - to them as if finishing the conversation she was having with them earlier, she even rubbed her temples from both stress and exhaustion, "... Zis is disastrous! Simply disastrous! Ever since Flutterschy quit zer hasn't been a pony vith half as much elegance and poise as her... zese new models vee haf are amateurs! Amateurs I tell you! Ve must start lookink for a new-new model for the schoot next week - NO! Two more of them... aiii weltschmerz..."
She then placed a tied hoof over her forehead.

((I am not German/Austrian and am not going to pretend that I will be getting all the little details correct, lol. But I have been following guides on the Internet to make it sound believable and have a smooth flow to it as much as possible. Still! Photofinish is so much fun to RP! Such a compelling challenge~ :D ))

The door swung open once more as a mint pony strolled in with her eyes shut and a lyre floating in front of her.
"UhI'mmmm hereee again! UhI love this place it's always so quiet and..." She spoke in an Irish accent. Lyra's eyes opened up and saw the princesses as well as photo finish. "Ah dear. What's going on t'day. Some sorta event?"


(Im also attempting an Irish accent for Lyra. It's a bit hard but im working on it :D)

"What is it with ponies bursting through the doors today? It'll be a miracle if the doors are still intact by the end of the day." Choc muttered to himself as Photo Finish made her way over to the counter. As she spoke, Choc shook his head with a sigh. "I'm sorry, miss but you will have to wait in line like every pony else." Choc told the impatient celebrity. Choc then turned back to Nivalia and smiled. "Now, where were we?" Choc asked, blocking out the photographer a few meters away. As he spoke, one of Choc's regulars, Lyra Heartstrings, walked into the room. "Lyra! Welcome back." As Lyra spoke, Choc surveyed the Bakery, thinking to himself what a busy day he was having. "If there is an event happening, I wouldn't be the one to ask. You're the only pony here I actually know." Choc told the mint coated mare.

One after the other, pony after pony after pony burst through the door, making some kind of entrance, which really didn't help Broadshield as Photo Finish made her entrance, nearly spitting out the last of his second muffin in surprise. 'I swear, if one more pony makes another loud entrance I'm gonna have a heart attack from shock...' he joked to himself, before completely finishing his muffins. Looking around, there probably 10 ponies in the bakery, including himself. He then took his rubbish, and dropped it into the bin, deciding it was probably good to move on. After saying his goodbyes to every pony, and giving a courteous salute to the Princess, he trotted out of the door, making sure to close it gently.

Photofinish frowned a little at the employee's reply, reluctantly accepting his answer and waited her turn. She looked about the bakery briefly and then down to her watch before shaking her head and making a tutting noise, "Zis is ridiculous, vhat is such a busy establishment in the middle of Canterlot of all cities do-ink vith just one employee? Such a sing needs to be amended... Zer are just far too many, busy ponies in zis grand city to cater to- I still need to start my search for zose models..." she complained quietly to her co-workers.

It was when the mint-green unicorn whom entered the bakery that had caught her attention, she let out a gasp and a sudden broad grin stretched across her face. "YOU!" she yelled at the mare, suddenly rushing up to her and placed a foreleg around the back of Lyra's neck and pulled her into a side-hug. With her other foreleg she pointed it up high into the air in a sharp and dramatic fashion and proclaimed, "I, Photofinisch, haf finally found my first, next model!"

The earth pony excitedly walked around Lyra, drinking in her aesthetics through her hot pink glasses, "Ahh, wundabar! Yes! You are perfect! Just perfect! You must be a part of my next photoschoot - today actually! I, Photofinisch, vill be able to make you shine all across of Equestria and be the fery enfy of efery mare and filly! Vhat do you say? Yes, no?"

"Me? A modul?" Lyra put her lyre in her saddlebad. "But yah just met me. I just came up here for a wii bit of coffee. Is this some sorta joke? Wait, i know yah!" Her eyes widened. "You were in ponyville a couple of times. Me? Be your model and have a photoshoot today? I don't know if tha fits in my schedule."
