My second Patreon post for September delves into the mysterious. Specifically, we join Kyle of Insight Investigations as he tries to uncover the truth for his latest client. He walks into a coffee shop, hoping to find the last piece to the puzzle. Will he be able to find the truth and free his client?
Pushing the door open, Kyle, heard a chime. Looking past the register, Kyle saw a woman wrapped in baggy clothing glaring up at him. Readjusting his folder under his arm, Kyle strode to the counter, saying, “Good morning.”
The woman nodded, saying, “Is there anything I can do for you, sir?”
Kyle laid his folder down with great reverence, answering, “Just the biggest black coffee you have, please.”
Nodding, she grabbed the biggest cup and poured the steaming coffee into it. The smell wafted up, tickling Kyle’s nose. The barista put the lid on the cup and slid it over to Kyle.
“Thank you,” Kyle said as he handed her more than enough money. She wanted to object, but Kyle insisted, “Keep the change… miss…”
The barista tapped the name tag on her chest, saying, “Raquel.”
“Keep the change, Raquel,” Kyle said as he took a sip. Putting his coffee down, he leaned against the counter and stared at the cactus at the far end of the bar.
Raquel groaned and asked, “Can I help you with anything else, sir?”
