Van Cedric glances up as a customer walks in. Since it was late, the host had left a while ago, but Van Cedric had decided to stay. When the bell rang, Van Cedric was ready. "Welcome to the Cafe' Du Pain! You're late and will be treated with contempt!" The man, decidedly disgruntled, said, "What?! I'm so sorry." When Van Cedric sat the man down, the man looked at him and said, "Wow, you're mean." "Today's menu includes canned lamb, dried crackers, Bavarian beer, cheese soup, and jello. No repeating, you will remember what I said." "Yes, sir." the timid man replied. Soon, the meal was brought out, and when the man started eating, Van Cedric pulled out a stop watch and said, "You've only got fifteen minutes to eat. If you can't finish eating within the time limit, I will kill you." The man made choking sounds for a second. "That's fair." After he was done, the man stood up and said, "Thanks for the food." As he moves to leave, Van Cedric stops him by placing a hand on his shoulder. Now, more calm, her said, "Our time together has been very special. Be sure to lock your doors at night." Then he looks deeply into the eyes of the man. "No problem," he says shakily, and takes his leave. "Another job well done, Van Cedric, my man." he says to himself, smiling.
