It was a bit of a gloomy spring day, not quite raining at least in this part of the city, but gray and overcast and cold and humid. Still, that was no excuse to neglect his daily exercise, so Keone had been out jogging for a while. About the time he got tired, he noticed a Suncash sign at the end of the block, so he pushed himself a little longer to get there for a rest. It wasn't really surprising to see one of these anywhere in New York, but since he tried to walk or jog in different places each day he never quite knew what to expect, so it was still a sort of pleasant surprise.
Granted, a smaller, more locally owned coffee shop would probably have better prices and tastier snacks. But there was something vaguely comforting about the familiarity here, too, just knowing exactly what he'd order and knowing they'd have it, heh. So Keone got a vanilla frappuccino and one of the spinach pastries. When his name was called, a different barista handed him the order than the one who'd taken it at the register, and Keone found himself pausing. Wasn't she... a Pro Hero? Maybe not the biggest name, but he was all but certain he recognized her... He did a lot of research on heroes around the city, after all, both for school and personal reasons (called just being a giant nerd)... But after a moment to realize he was staring, he shook his head and apologized, "S-sorry, I spaced out... Thank you, ma'am." Maybe she just had one of those faces that always looked vaguely familiar, or was the chain hero's "doppelganger" as it were. Who knew?
Anyway, he took his order and sat down with it. The atmosphere was so nice, and the food was still fairly fresh. Who would have ever thought something might go terribly wrong any time soon?
