"Can we go somewhere and talk?" I asked, figuring if I suggested going up to her apartment she might get the wrong idea. I might get the wrong idea as well.

She thought for a moment and said, "There's a coffee shop around the corner. We can go there, I guess."

We walked in relative silence to the Molten Java, a coffee shop that looked like it catered mostly to intellectuals, writers and poets.

We took a booth at the end of the shop and sat down.

A mousy little waitress with stringy brown hair ambled over to the table...

    Christopher, you could write a couple hundred words describing the place and it wouldn't do it as accurately as "a coffee shop that looked like it catered mostly to intellectuals, writers and poets" superb sir!

    I like mine with those Lotus biscuits, if that’s OK with you, Drew?

    I've got loads in the kitchen, mate, I'll bring some along just in case. (I'm wondering were they around in Jakes day?)

    Thanks, everyone. I heard the phrase "molten lava" and immediately thought it would be a great name for a coffee shop if you changed lava to java. The clientele reminded me of Jake running the Existential Cafe in the story about the Beatniks.
