Who: Cecil + whoever wants to pester him
What: Coffee shop hijinx?
When: Sometime this early afternoon
Where: The small café near the school
Instant human—-just add coffee. That phrase was so true. Every day, students from the school would come staggering in like zombies, only to bolt out the door moments later with caffeine in their systems and scalding hot paper cups in their hands. Either that or they would sit and graze for hours, so long as fresh scones, muffins, savory sandwiches and crisp salads were made readily available to them -- which they were.
Cecil had been working at the small café near the school for awhile now, which meant he was quite good at his job. This summer in particular, he spent a lot of his days running the place while the owner was out sick. He didn’t mind so much, as long as he was paid extra for it -- which he was.
The tips were very good, which was part of why he stayed working here for so long. Not only that, but the café was small and quaint and had a relaxing atmosphere, helped along by the variety of music playing over the loudspeakers. Last, but not least, he could have free iced tea and the occasional scone whenever he wanted -- which he definitely took advantage of.
Humming under his breath, Cecil leisurely wiped the front counter down with a clean cloth, and then busied himself with stocking the glass display case with some more freshly baked items of the day.
