Who: Superman & Mara What: A cup of coffee When: Sunday Morning Where: Coffee. Status: Incomplete Rating: G
While there were many things he missed about home, but one thing he didn't have to worry about, at least, was coffee. Well, usually. Caffeine didn't do much for him--the hazard of Kryptonian physiology--but he enjoyed the bitter taste especially with a flavored creamer. Lately, though, he'd been up pretty late. The universe, in all its wonder, had sent a gift his way: a super-powered dog. And, like most dogs, he required a lot of attention in a new place. So, last night, he spent most of it tuckering him out so Krypto would sleep.
With a bit of a yawn, he stood in the small line and waited for his order to be taken. He was glad, though, that Krypto was sleeping. He just hoped that he'd be able to stay out of trouble. When he awoke, there were a few new creatures out. God, he hoped Krypto remembered to keep his calm. Luckily, he was friendly and merely wanted to make friends and he wasn't as intimidating as some of the other dogs he'd known growing up on the farm. Slowly but surely, he was becoming comfortable with the world around him. While he'd gotten used to the idea that he might not get home soon, he knew he needed to put more effort to become a presence. Make friends.
Wanting to try something new, he chose a blended drink because why not? There wasn't much to do in this village. Might as well experiment this way? With his drink, he took a seat at a table and pulled out a small notebook and began to scribble down his thoughts. Doing so often helped him clear his mind.
