Who: Marie and Jia Li What: Hot Day = Ice Cream When: Late Afternoon Where: Matilda's Ice Cream Parlour Warnings: None Status: Complete
Marie had been working since nine o'clock that morning. Matilda's specialized in ice cream, but they also served a variety of fast foods as well. Hamburgers, french fries, pancakes and pie were among the offerings. It was a pretty hopping place during the breakfast, lunch and dinner hours, but the time in between didn't see as much action. The lunch rush had just finished and Marie was wiping down a couple of tables.
She was in her uniform, the striped dress with the ice cream cone on the pocket and the lace edged apron around her waist. She wore a pair of white leggings beneath the dress and some white tennis shoes. It was lucky for her that she was so slender, otherwise she might have resembled a marshmallow with legs. Her hair was tucked back in a ponytail and she hummed while she wiped the tables.
She arranged the ketchup and mustard, salt and pepper and napkin dispenser on the last table and returned to her place behind the counter. The counter itself boasted a host of different levers that dispensed flavored sodas and a covered display case that held various types of pie. There was an old fashioned cash register and a freezer full of ice cream. The smattering of customers in the parlour at the time didn't seem to need anything so she leaned on the counter with both elbows and watched the door.
