"Well Finchley, here we are, "The Greasy Spoon" café. This is Timson's idea of a joke I guess. Anyway, this is where you get the honest to God meat and real food. It is a quaint place, modest furnishings, but the food.......good Lord it is good" Ky'la said grinning.

Finchley plonked himself down in a chair at a table near the entrance so he could still see the promenade as well as talk to Ky'La. The person who had brought the food to his friend earlier appeared at their table, so Finchley assumed this was the famous 'Timson'.

"Well, you have quite the reputation for decent meals according to Ky'La here" he said to Timson as he gestured towards Ky'La, "and I'm told your foods good'"

"And right you are sir! My name is Timson and this is my eating establishment. I offer real food and cook with an honest to god stove. None of that replicated junk," he said grinning.

"Sirloin steak well done" Finchley said, "and I mean cremated kind of well done, pepper sauce, three sausages, fried mushrooms, onion rings in batter, chips, not those thin 'fries' rubbish either I want thick cut chips and a glass of water....not that replicated shite, I mean bottled and I'll know if you're trying to fleece me. Do well with this meal, I can guarantee I'll eat here twice a week and so will my staff...all of them.

'Ky'la, your usual meal?" Timson asked.

"Yes Timson, the usual," Ky'la said laughing.

"And you sir, shall have your steak cooked to perfection. Do you want it broiled welldone or would you like it grilled well done? I do have a charcoal grill," Timson said laughing. It was true however, Timson had a state of the art food establishment that no one really knew how he got it but his food was the talk of the station.

"I'd like it grilled wel..." Finchley started to say, but then his COMM badge chirruped.

Tapping his badge he said "Kerr here."

"Sir, it's Lieutenant Jefferson. We need you in Yellow sector, outer section, we've got a dead body" Jefferson said.

Finchley stood up and began to move towards the exit. Once he was outside and clear of people he began running "I'm on my way now, Kerr out."
