Keith groaned as he woke up to the sound of his 6:00am alarm. How was it possible that the weekend was over already? Once he had turned off his alarm, Keith rolled back into bed and sighed as he stared up at his ceiling. Did he really have to go in today? Surely Kolivan wouldn’t mind if he missed one day. It wasn’t like a lot of people visited the Blade of Marmora antique shop anyway. Then again if he took today off it wouldn’t take him long to fall into the habit of taking a day off whenever he felt like he couldn’t be bothered. Sighing once again Keith dragged himself out of bed and towards the bathroom, for a shower.
After his shower, and after he’d gotten dressed, Keith headed for the kitchen to make himself some breakfast and a cup of coffee. It didn’t take him long to realise that he was out of coffee. Keith huffed. ‘Guess I’m going to the cafe for breakfast.’
As Keith walked into the cafe the first thing he saw was a long queue. He rolled his eyes ‘Today just keeps getting better and better. At least I have time to decide what I want.’ Twenty minutes later he was finally at the front of the line.
“Good morning. What can I get for you today?” asked the barista.
“Good morning-” he peered at her name tag “-Allura. I’ll have a venti coffee please.” he replied.
“Would you like cream or milk with that? And your name?”
“Milk, please and it’s Keith.”
“Okay Keith. anything else?”
“Uh, yes! This as well.” Keith said as he placed the BLT he’d grabbed from the refrigerator earlier.
“Alright and that’ll be $6.02.”
“Here you go.”
“Your coffee will be ready in a few minutes.”
As Keith waited for his coffee he felt his phone vibrate. It was a text from Antok.
Antok: You’re late. Where are you?
Keith: At the cafe getting coffee. I’ll be there in ten.
Antok: You’d better be otherwise Kolivan will have both of our heads.
“Keith, your coffee.” Allura said, placing the cup on the counter.
“Thank you.” Keith was about to leave when he’d noticed that she’d given him a trenta instead of a venti. He wasn’t complaining. More coffee to see him through the day, but he didn’t want her to get in trouble or anything so he went back to the counter to point it out to her in case she wanted to switch it.
“Umm, excuse me, Allura? You gave me a trenta rather than a venti.” he said.
Allura looked him straight in the eye and replied. “I decide what you drink now.”
Keith chuckled. “Is that so?”
“Yeah, that is so.”
Before he could reply his phone vibrated again.
Antok: Remember how I said Kolivan would have our heads? Well if you’re not here in the next three minutes he’s having your head, not mine.
“Sorry about that, it’s work. I’ve got to go, but maybe I’ll see you again tomorrow, around the same time perhaps?”
“Okay then. I’ll see you tomorrow.” As Keith left the cafe his phone rung. He didn’t have to look at the caller id to know who it was. “Stop overreacting, Antok. I’m nearly there alright?”
