"Hey, no need to apologize," she replied, a slight frown marring her features as she took in the girls state. For a moment she felt compelled to go get someone. Perhaps the girls boss or another employee? Either way Jasper wasn't looking very good.
Nyx was just about to stand to do so when...something happened to the other girl. It was caught just out of the corner of her eye since she had moved to stand, but she could have sworn she saw a strange glint of blue. Yet when she tilted her head all the way up, the only thing about the other was that her eyes were closed. "Are you sure you're ok? You really don't look well. I can-" But before she could actually offer anything jasper was suddenly up and off like a shot.
"Well, um, alright then," she muttered to nothing, blinking in surprise at the suddenly empty space at her table. Using her significant height advantage, Nyz twisted in her seat to see where the girl had gone and spotted her kneeling on the floor not too far away. Apparently fleeing with your eyes closed was not a good idea. Duly noted.
Protective, nurturing instincts warred with what she had learned to be social norms. It'd be a little weird for a customer to mozy on up to a worker to help them with anything. Eventually normality won out; she didn't know jasper well enough to feel protective of her, at least not in a way her gargoyle instincts would truly react to. However, when she turned back to her plate she felt decidedly less chipper about eating the food in front of her, all of which seemed to stick uncomfortably in her throat when she tried to swallow. Well, this was certainly turning out to be a swell first day.
