Amber wiped down the table for the fifth time that day. Why she thought do they always pick the same table. Out loud the only thing the surrounding people heard was a slight mumble. She never hastened when she did this ttedious monotonous work not matter how many times she wiped it down; or how long it took to do so.
A heavy sigh left her as she stood up straight and moved to the next dirty table. She took a quick look around, but no matter how many times she would look, the flow of customers during the lunch rush would not relent.
“Amber!” She heard the rough voice call to her and looked up. Her manager was motioning for her to come to the front where a long line of customers was waiting to have their orders taken. Another sigh left her as she remembered they were short one today because the rich brat called in.
SHE resigned and started toward the front and was moving around the front most table when two large men entered the restaurant. They were not subtle and no amount of distraction would allow you to miss their entrance.
The first thing that everyone in the place noticed was the long red hair that both men shared, the second was the viking-esk hats they wore. One held an ax that those closest to them would not take their eyes off of. The other a large jewel encrusted hammer.
“Anak par ney ba!” The hammer man shouted and pointed toward Amber. And before anyone else could react they had cleared the 20 feet between them. The speaker had Amber in the air by her head. Her feet were kicking while her hands febly tried to free her head. Muffled screams were heard coming from her.
The crowd was silent and captivated by the enormity of the situation. Horror spread like a wave through the faces of the men and women present as the man raised her as high as he could an brought her head first into the floor. The tile beneath her was shattered and displaced as if it had been hit by a meteorite.
Dust clouds filled the air as the crowd began to move in a slow rush toward the doors. Screams and sobbng filled the air. Amber’s name was screamed and shouted as her co-workers were brought back to life by the action. Rasious laughter filled the air and as the dust cleared those still present were met with the site of the men holding their weapons high over their heads about to swing.
Not one of the still horrified crowd noticed the movement below the men; so the voice that followed the movements left them with soiled shorts.
“You win this time but I will not stop unt-” The downward motion of the weapons cut off the sweet voice of Amber. The men kept laughing after their work was done, and as they walked through the door they had come through their hard laughter cut off and they were gone.
