Dante's car drove up to the quick stop. It was still early, but Dante was here like he'd always be. The car was parked and he got out. The usual feeling of Deja Vu played through him and he pulled the keys out of his pocket, slipped the key into the lock and turned the key. A satisfying clunk and the lock was lifted out of the hasps of the door. He leaned over and grabbed the bottom of the door. He paused for a moment, took a deep breath, No coffee machine, no coffee machine... The shutter was thrown up and Dante was greeted by his reflection through the small port hole of the advertisements. A dark store was viewed and Dante smiled. "No coffee machine." He rose the other shutters and then went in. It was so cool being in charge. No asshole boss to lie to you. No more dreading coming in here. It was his, he wanted to be here. It's amazing what owning the place you work at does for going to work.

It was amazing though. The second the Quick Stop re-opened it was like it had never been closed. The regulars that had come in before it's conflagration came back. Like nothing had happened. The milk maids, the guidance counselors, smokers, though, Dante had to admit, the number of smokers had declined immensely. Society's new non-smoking kick really dampened people's trust. Which Dante wasn't a smoker, he could understand why people did it. The world was stressful enough as it was. What would be more amazing is if the government would simply legalize marijuana. The number of regular cigarette smokers would disappear! Dammit, where was Randal? This was a good idea and he needed his counter-point. Fuck, why does he always get these brilliant ideas when no one's around?

Dante filed it away and went outside to get the newspapers dropped off by the trucks. A nice fresh stock, the same old news headlines. Every stupid newspaper trying to get the attention of a passerby. Dante turned to see the wall underneath RST Video's window was decorated in a wonderful brown liquid. "Puke...wonderful, bunch of savages in this town." The hose was out back.

Cassie arrived a few minues after the Quick Stop opened, dressed casually in a red and white flowered halter top and faded jeans, a bit tattered around the cuffs. She had thrown her hair up in a messy bun in case it got hot. Really, she hadn't know how to dress, exactly, though violating an unknown dress code (Randal's proposed uniform notwithstanding). She probably didn't even look like she worked there, anyway. She had assumed that she would get a name tag...but then, had Randal been wearing a nametag? She couldn't remember. It didn't entirely matter while she was standing outside, anyway, so she ventured inside instead to see.

A man she vaguely recognized from yesterday was already in there, opening up shop. What was his name? Had it ever been spoken? Did he have a name tag?! Whatever. She went up to the counter nevertheless.

Dante walked back inside and put the papers in their proper hoppers. "Be right there." He cracked his neck and then got behind the counter, "Can I help you?" He yawned slightly, put his hand over his mouth, "Sorry, seems I didn't get enough sleep again."

A dark blue plymoth with peeling paint and rust spots everywhere pulled into an empty parking space and Mia stepped out of her car, thankful that it hadn't died before she'd gotten it parked well. She didn't look like she was readly to go to work, wearing a black teeshirt, which advertised the local Rocky Horror cast, over a bright purple fishnet shirt, which matched the stitching on her wide-legged gray cargo pants. On her wrists were again the bracelets and wristbands that went up her thin arms all the way to her elbows and her short dyed purple hair was spiked up in a wild pattern. She finished her cigarette and flicked it away before walking into the store, drinking the coffee she'd snagged from Wawa on her way there. She looked at Dante with pale, bloodshot eyes, and when she smiled and nodded there was a weak falseness to it. "Good Morning," she mumbled out between swigs of coffee.

"Oh...yes." She paused as Dante's brain sought oxygen, forcing him into a yawn, then continued as if it had never happened. "Um. Yes. I was hired yesterday, so...uh...do I get a name tag?" she blurted out, before smacking her palm to her forehead. How compulsive. She must sound like a complete idiot with OCD. "I mean...what do you want me to do, sir?"

Dante blinked a few moments, "Oh right, the second girl Randal hired." He moved to where he kept the applications and pulled out Cassie's. "Ms. Cassie Greene? Right. No, we don't get name tags. It's not exactly crucial for the customers to know your name. They usually don't care. Also, as Randal will inform you when he gets in, it makes it easier to rebuke them without them knowing who you are." Dante shrugged, "I can't tell you right off the bat what you're going to be doing, this was sort of a surprise. So today is going to be relaxed for you and for Mia. Good morning, Mia." Dante indicated the bleary eyed darling that was now taking her infusion of caffeine. "Find a place to get comfortable. You can store your pocket book behind the counter. I'll give ya small jobs throughout the day. Probably hand you over to Randal half way through the day so he can train you on how to work RST Video."

A customer came in at that moment, walked up next to Cassie, laid his money on the counter, "Pack of Nails." Dante reached up and grabbed the red box and put it in front of the customer.

"Matches or lighter?", Dante stated with very little enthusiasm, the cusomter shook his head and Dante took the money off the counter and rang it up. The change was placed on the box of cigarettes and the customer scooped it away and walked back out. "And that would be the majority of working here."

The kick stand was bent slightly unable to hold up the bike, sighing she leaned it up against the wall outside the Quick stop. Megumi had a few dollars in pocket change for a fruit bar and maybe a small cup of coffee before school.
Maybe she could get a chance to talk to Randal, but if she didn't it wouldn't be the end of the world. Nah it was too early, he probably wasn't even awake.
She waved brightly to Dante behind the counter and went towards the back to grab a french vanilla frappachino and a pack of bubble gum. Very nutritious.

From the corner of her eye, Cassie caught sight of a pretty young Asian women saunter in, sending a cheerful wave Dante's way before heading to the fridges lining the back of the store to grab a Starbucks bottle out of the glass doors. A vanilla frappachino. Cassie could go for one herself. Perhaps she'd fetch herself one a bit later. On the girl's way back up, she snagged a pack of Double Bubble. Cassie wondered idly if this was to be the entirety of the girl's breakfast. Plucking a Nutrigrain bar from the rack, she followed the chick and tapped her on the shoulder, then held out the bar with a eyebrow carelessly raised. "This might get you better grades in school than what you've got right there."

Mia spotted the girl from yesterday and smiled at her. "Good mornin'Megumi!" She was practically bouncing on the balls of her feet, her hands clasped behind her back, as she rocked onto the balls of her feet and back down rythmically. She looked at Cassie when she suggested the nutragrain bar to Megumi and shook her head slightly. Suggestive selling always seemed like an insult to the customer to her.

"Cassie?" Dante piped up to get her attention, "Before Megumi starts to rip you a new one. You're a quick stop employee. Not the customer's mother. If you're going to have a problem selling items to certain people. You better let me know now before this training goes any further." Dante shook his head and got back to his morning check list. "Mia, do me a favor. As your first official act as an employee," Dante retrieved a pair of keys from behind the counter. "Go out the back door, this is the key. There's a green garden hose, 25 footer. Get it and bring it to the front of the store. There's a spigot between the two stores. Hook it up and spray the front wall under the RST video. Looks like someone either...well, just spray it down, hold your breath, and get it down the parking lot into the drain." Dante wore a rueful expression, wanting to say he was sorry for the shit job, but it was something that needed to be done. Not every job was clean and glamorous.

She smiled a little at the girl's suggestion, but didn't answer, Dante pretty much handled that for her. She waved at Mia, mouthing a 'hello'. Two new employees and they were both very cute. Well I have more then one reason to come here nearly everyday She thought.

Megumi made her way quickly up to the counter during their conversation, "It's fine you two, really. I'm sorry I spaced...just tired this morning and.." to Cassie, "Thank you, but I have first lunch at school this is just to tide me over for the first three classes." She put her money on the counter looking up at Dante, "Is Randal around?" Ah the pathetic school girl crush strikes again.

"Sorry, Meg. He doesn't usually come in this early. He wrangles in here bout an half-hour to an hour later." Dante started scribbling a few notes on his clipboard, "Cassie, for your first official job, there's a clipboard hanging on the side of the cooler over there. Take it and you'll see the list of the items in there. Take a tally of what's there, please? You don't have to go in the cooler yet. I've gotta clear you for that."

Unfortunately for Randal, he didn't come wrangling in here in half-hour to an hour later. He couldn't remember the last time he came by the Quick Stop this early... It was against nature, he swore. He paused for a moment, looking infront of RST as Mia danced about. He arched an eyebrow, but decided against questioning ANYTHING about it, and entered the Quick Stop. No, no, he wrangled in. Well, atleast half-way until he stopped and shook his head, "Too fuckin' early for that..." He just shook his head, "Fuckin' Mooby's schedule still has me fucked up."

He noticed Megumi was there, in which he just gave a nod to her direction, then noticed the other new Quick Stop Employee there, Cassie and strolled toward her, somewhat disappointed to see her not in her, uniform. "Damn. I know it was a long shot about that uniform I talked about yesterday, but I was hoping for atleast a short-shorts. Or a skirt." He gave a nod toward her, "Dante went anal-retentive yet?"

She smiled brightly as Randal walked in the store. Megumi popped the top off of her frappachino and drank it quickly, a small distraction from the joy she felt by his presence. A wonderful way to begin a school day.

"Has anyone seen Elias?" She blurted out suddenly to either of the men, the girls wouldn't know who he was. The truth was she hadn't thought about him in the last few days, things had gone by so fast. "What about Pillow Pan- I mean Myra?"

Cassie nodded complacently and did as he bid, taking the clipboard and counting everything off. Aha, she had already made a bad impression, most like, so the least she could do was be quick and obedient, otherwise. Her temper could continue to be a problem...she would have to work on that. Maybe. At least around Dante, he didn't seem like a shit-taker.

She heard footsteps behind her and turned her head, smiling a bit as Randal sauntered over. She rested the edge of the clipboard against her hip, and kept it in place with a hand gripping the top. "Oops, my bad," she replied sweetly. "I guess I totally forgot. Am I fired?" If Dante didn't get to it first. "Sort of," she said as an answer to Randal's question. "It was my fault, though. I'll be a good quiet girl now. No more friendly chats with customers for fear of sounding like their mother."

He shook his head, "Nah... But if you wear some short-shorts tomarrow, everything will be forgiven." Couldn't blame the guy for trying. He crossed his arms, leaning back. "Nah, don't worry about Dante. He's pretty anal-retentive at times. Most times. All the time." He gave a shrug, "He gives me shit all the time. But I gotta ask, what the hell would make you want to have a friendly chat with a customer?"

"Maybe I will, if it's hot enough," she murmured in reply, wiping her forehead with the back of her hand for emphasis. "Maybe with a nice, bulky, form-defying turtleneck. Sound sexy?" Cassie laughed, then looked back down at the board. She double-checked her tallies, speaking at the same time. "Boredom? Amusement? Looking out for one's health? Who knows." She looked back up and smiled again. "I'll refrain next time."

"Aww, There's nothing like a wake-and-bake to start the mother fuckin' day, damn dude, i got the fuckin' munchies..." said a tall, long haired, smelling of cannabis and bad deodorant, closely followed by a shorter man who was taking a drag from his cigarette,, just before his hetero-life mate bumped in to the japanese schoolgirl. "Ah shit, it's you again, I know you would come crawling back, no slut can resist this," he greeted, grabbing his crotch.
Out of the corner of Jay's eye he saw the new QuickStop employee, drawing himself back to get a better look, "Damn, Your fine too" look up at Dante I'm so fucking glad that youze two opened this place back up."

Dante froze just as he was about to answer Mia's question. His mouth just hung open agape staring at Megumi's bold move. His mind immediately went into the gutter, but soon, another view came over his mental faculties. He didn't feel embarassed about feeling that way. Two hot women kissing in front of you, kind of a big deal. Not that he was married, please, he can look, but he'd never touch. Dante could see what Megumi was doing. "Oh my god..."

The blunt twins, and investors, decided to time their entrance at this exact moment. Dante was taken aback by the sheer smell that came wafting in, and pulled from the freaky moment Megumi created, "I really hope you're staying clean Jay, you too, Bob."

Mia's attention turned from her boss to Megumi and Cassie. She raised her eyebrows and tilted her head, "Damn", she muttered softly to herself in an obviously dissapointed tone. As the men who smelled like a two-man cannibis farm came into the store, snapping her out of her avid stares at the other two females. She looked at Dante and laughed, "They're supposed to be clean?" She asked in a doubtful voice.

Jay and Bob stare at the two with at the with the same look as that of 13 year old boys...Spaced and drool-dribbling. Bob's cigarette dropped with his jaw, Jay was struck silent same expression as his trench coat-clad companion.

"I really hope you're staying clean Jay, you too, Bob."

"I was..." was all Jay could respond with, and at this comment, Bob snapped out of his awestruck daze and shuffled a couple of feet farther from Jay.

Another day at Quick Stop.

Jordy walked up to the Quick Stop and got out of her 07 Elantra. She was wearing her normal scrub pants and white tank top. Her dark hair was up in a clip with pieces of her hair fallin to the side. She lite a cigarette and started to walk up to the store. She noticed Jay and Silent Bob of course standing in front of the Quick Stop like normal.

"Hey boys" said Jordy and she gave them each a big hug. She walked into the store and noticed a nice little group meeting. She looked around and pushed her little body through to the pop section. She grabbed a one liter of pepsi and walked up front.

"Dante I need a pack of Camal #9's and I'll take this pop too." Jordy looked behind her and noticed Randal checking out the new employees.

{{thinking}} God, why can't he see me like that, and not like the little sister he normally does.

Jordy took her cigarettes and turned around. "Randal, these girls aren't like the ones you normally go for. I mean these girls are at least older than 15" Jorday then flashed her signature smile and giggled a bit as Randal tried not to laugh at her.

Re: Another day at Quick Stop.

Dante hugged back. "Hey Jordy." He smiled and reached for the pack of cigarettes. He punched the numbers in the register, it rang up and displayed the total to Jordy. Dante pointed to it, "Your total is 6.72."

"So what's up?", Dante shrugged off the Randal comment. She was right, but after the earlier hijinx, Dante wasn't exactly in the mood to laugh.

Re: Another day at Quick Stop.

"Not much. Heading to Alyssa's for lunch. I'm off today, so I really don't have much planned." Jordy once again looked at the new empolyees "Ya know, I put in an application here too Dante" Jordy smiled at him while poking his side.

"Couldn't hire me why?" Jordy laid her head on Dante's shoulder and then once again poked him in his side and smiled at him. Jordy always felt comfortble and protected when around Dante. She then lightly grabbed his side and hugged him again.
