Coffee Break

Part 2

by Jill W.

Jo was cleaned up and dressed in jeans and a turtleneck before she remembered that her leather motorcycle jacket... with the keys to her Harley Davidson Fatboy... were still in the Pit. She snarled to herself. If she went back, Garth and Mack would get on her case for leaving it there in the first place. Right now, she wasn’t sure she could take any more guff from Garth. At least, not until she got back at him for those ‘mouse turds.’

She sighed. She’d just have to hoof it for now. She walked off the gangplank and headed into town. There were several good eating places within a few minutes walking and she decided to have breakfast while she cooled down. "Do I want something healthy?" she muttered. "Nah, what I want is a Krispy Kreme donut!"

She arrived at the shop to find the ‘Hot Doughnuts Now’ light on and a line wrapped around the parking lot. Feeling more cheerful, she got in line. Automatically, she checked to see if she had enough money to get something for the guys, too. Then she frowned. Garth didn’t DESERVE a Krispy Kreme donut, the kreep! Er, creep! But then, Dwayne and Mack DID deserve Krispy Kreme donuts. Heck, Dwayne deserved two! Or more!

She contemplated her choices as she waited. She could get something for Dwayne and Mack, but what if Slate was there when she got back? Couldn’t leave the Doc out just because Garth was a booger. She could just get plain donuts for them and a jelly donut for herself. Dwayne and Mack didn’t care, but Garth loved jelly donuts almost as much as she did. Suddenly an idea came to her mind and she began to grin.

The employees at the New Tronic Krispy Kreme store were surprised at how thin the crowd was that morning.
