"Hm.. Root Beer…" He too flipped the menu to check the drinks. He scanned through the list, before nodding. Root Beer did sound like a good idea. At that moment, someone walked over.
" ‘Scuse me, but are you two ready to order?" Jack immediately noticed that the waitress was positioned to look more at Sally than at him, but made no reaction. Instead, he looked over at Sally to check if she was ready, even though she had said she was.
Sally looked up at the waitress, suddenly remembering how nervous she got sometimes when she had to order, but she’d managed with Aurora, She could do it now. She fiddled with her menu and looked up at the woman. “I’ll take a cheeseburger with bacon.” She smiled a bit nervously.
"Which side would you like?"
"Fries, please. And a root beer." She beat the woman to asking her what to drink just so she could be done with this. Sally looked to Jack as she confirmed that was all she’d be ordering when the waitress asked.
"Oh, of course, of course." Jack nodded firmly in agreement. "Just to screw with people’s heads. The scary looking ones are the good guys, while the cute, fluffy - bunnies - would be the evil ones." Who said that can’t happen anyway? There is more to the world than looks, after all! "I’d totally pay to see that movie." He grinned. Jack took a glance out the window, before looking back at Sally. "So, do you want to stay for dinner?"
Sally laughed a bit and shrugged at his question. “I find some of my favorite people are the ones everyone else is scared of…” She blushed a bit but managed a smile through it. Knowing people were scared of Jack, though she certainly didn’t understand why. He was one of the sweetest people she knew. She smiled widely at his question and nodded a bit, considering she’d decided to skip out on supper in favor of ‘returning a library book’ earlier, dinner with Jack would be nice. “I’d like that, quite a bit actually.” She admitted quietly.
Ooh, now that did sound good! “Cheeseburger with bacon and.. Hm, I don’t quite know what drink to get.” He trailed off, looking at the menu again. So many choices! “What soda are you getting?” He eventually asks, a blank expression on his face.
Sally picked up the menu and flipped it over so she could find the beverages, browsing those a moment before she settled on one. “Root Beer, I think.” She nodded and set her menu down again. She still didn’t really get the sweetness of soda at home often because of her father’s preferences. At least she had tea there. However when she went out she made sure she got soda every so often.
Sally sighed and kicked a tree in annoyance, her combat booted feet didn’t even feel it and she just sighed a bit defeated. She’d been locked away, and kept under watchful eye because her father hadn’t had his usual amount of work so he’d been keeping an eye on her. Lovely, but she’d managed to get out finally, but now it was really quiet and everything seemed rather deserted.
"No promblem, everyone needs a little hope"
"You’re right. They do." She agreed, she was glad for the few things she had hopeful in her life. Jack, selling her things in his shop, and maybe one day her father would loosen up. Just a bit.
"Im sorry dear, im sure he’ll losen up eventually."
"That’s unlikely. But thank you for a little hope."
Jack took the menu with a ‘thank you’ and began looking through. Sally was right - this was a burger place alright. Beef burgers, bigger beef burgers, chicken burgers, veggie burgers, pasta… Ahem, anyway. He had his eye on a cheeseburger with bacon, but looked up at Sally.
"So, what are you gonna get?"
"I think I’m going to get the same thing I got last time actually. Just a cheese burger and soda. It was good. Seems like a safe bet." She laughed a little.
"What about you?" She questioned, though she had mostly decided already she looked over her menu again, maybe something else would catch her eye this time.
