”Excuse me, but what exactly is ‘Rainbow Ramen’?”
At that, a new energy flowed through both of the men in the shop, through the Don, an electric excitement, through Xavier, fear for the customer’s life. The Don came from deep within the kitchen and scurried up front to better communicate with the blonde haired boy, a wide smile on his face.
“I’m glad you asked boy! You have impeccable taste, Rainbow Ramen is---“ At that moment, Xavier came barging in, a deathly serious look on his face.
“Don’t. Get. That. Ramen. I’m begging you. Stick with tonkotsu, pork bone can’t kill you. Trust me.” Xavier had perhaps never been so serious in his life, because he never had to save someone’s life before. The large young man bent over the counter, eyes resting on his boss.
“What’s the matter with you, you get one customer all day and you wanna kill em’?” Xavier was scolding his own employer, he tried whispering, but the fury in his voice caused it to grow louder than he aimed for. After taking a deep breath, he wiped his hand across his face, trying to regain his composure, and then he turned around, a warm grin on his face directed towards the kid, who didn’t look much younger than him actually.
“Sorry about all of that, Rainbow Ramen is…well, don’t ask,” He rubbed the back of his neck embarrassed, “Anyways, I’m Xavier, this is the Don, welcome. You’re our first customer all day…”
“Wallace! Don’t tell him that!”
“Yeah, yeah…” He mumbled. “Like I said before…tonkotsu’s the best thing on the menu."
