As always, here is the list of all of the 30 day challenge I am doing at the moment.
Here is my entry for today’s prompt.
Disclaimer: All of the characters are fictional. Any details that may be similar to a real person is entirely coincidental.
“Remind me again why we are doing this?” Jonny asked as he flipped a burger on the griddle.
“Because Nat asks us for a favor.” Scott replies from his fries station.
The reply shouldn’t be enough but it was. Nat is not the type of person to go around and ask for a favor easily. And you want to have that one favor owed from her because she can save your life later on, repaying that back. So you don’t turn Nat down when she asks for a favor.
Take Jonny for example. She’s the reason why he was still alive and well here.
Even if ‘here’ is in a fast-food restaurant owes by one of the richest families in the country.
“Did she say who we are covering for?” Jonny couldn’t help but ask. It was the lull in the afternoon and this was the first burger he had to cook in the last half an hour. He had half a mind to go grab the mop next just to have things to do.
“No, but I bet it’s for Clayton.” Scott seemed to have finished with his work as he moved to join Jonny in staring at the sizzling meat patty.
“I bet that it ain’t for Clayton. Can you imagine him working here?” Jonny raised his eyebrows at Scott’s suggestion.
The blond paused for a bit then laughed. It never failed to pull the corner of Jonny ‘s mouth into a smile when he hear that sound.
“Yeah, you’re right. I can’t imagine Clayton working here at all, he’d end up eating all of the fries and get fired. Even Tom wouldn’t be able to save his job.” The mirth in the blue eyes made Jonny forget about being grumpy over having to stay in door when it was such a beautiful day.
He snorted at what Scott had said though, “Please, Tom would more likely be the one who fire Clayton. Or he probably never would’ve been hired in the first place.”
“Yeah. Remember that time we did the barbecue in our Senior year?” Scott asked as he bumped his shoulder with him. Jonny would deny it to the end of his days that the action made his chest warm.
“How can I forget? That is the reason why Clayton is still banned from being near the food or the punch bowl!” They both snickered at the memories. Clayton decided that it would be funny to spike their already alcoholic sangria. And the caramel sauce for the grilled peach with ice cream dessert. They still cracked up about the resulting drunken snog between Tom and Teddy now.
Sometimes, Jonny wanted to pause and pinch himself to prove that this was his life for real. He had friends that had been with him over a decade long. And someone who he didn’t mind spending the afternoon with in the kitchen of a fast-food restaurant even if they could be outside, enjoying the Spring’s sun.
Life was pretty good.
Day 17 — Write a short scenario set in the kitchen of a fast-food restaurant.
This one was fast as soon as I decided on the characters! ;D
