Famous Ray’s Original Pie Shop (Open for business)

History
Famous Ray's Original Pie Shop has been a Clarkstown institution since 1919

It was actually founded before the war (the first in Titan City, if local legend is to be believed) by Ray Di Porto as "Ray's Pizza D'Oro. Ray sold the business to his uncle when he enlisted and poor business practices and the first of several economic downturns in Clarkstown since the post-fire boom put the pizzaria near to bankruptcy by the time Ray returned.

Ray returned from World War One a hero, having been awarded the Medal of Honor and the Purple Heart. Though there were many war veterans from Clarkstown, the papers ran with the story of the immigrant boy who raised himself up from nothing, only to give up the American Dream... to fight for the peace and freedom of the whole world. People who did not have much themselves, helped Ray pay off the lean on his restaurant and he re christened it: Famous Ray's Original Pie Shop.
------------------------------------------------------

Now

The Pie Shop has been the place to get a slice in Clarkstown for nearly a century. It's survived economic depressions, fires, and world wars, Gangsters, super villains and (only just) Hurricane Atlas.
It's longevity has given it a sort of holiness to the denizens south of the Bay and in many circles (particularly locals with more than human abilities) it's considered neutral ground.
The Current Ray (Who's real name is Johnny) supports several after-school programs and runs a food for the homeless charity, making soups and extra pies for those in need.
After school, most days of the week, you can find a handful of boys and girls from the local middle school dropping by for half-priced slices... cause everyone knows 'Ray' will give you a free soda while you wait.
------------------------------------------------------

The Shop

When you walk in the front door, Ray's seems small. There is only a narrow walkway from the door between a row of seats on your left and the massive pizza ovens (behind a service counter/butcher block bar) on your right. There you'll usually see 'Ray' taking orders, with his Santa Claus beard and old prescription glasses, while TC and Lorenzo flip dough and make the pies.
...And that's just the way Ray likes it. In the old days, that's really all there was to the shop. Just a place to grab a quick slice or dive inside to get out of the weather. Run into neighbors or listen to Ray talk about life.

Past the counter and the ovens, though, the restaurant expands dramatically. Just past the ovens' security insulation (covered in team pictures) stands a small hostess podium. Regardless of how busy the place gets, the "seat yourself" sign never moves.
The space itself is a large rectangle, with bench booths running along the walls. with dark wood tables and chairs filling the room. The walls are painted with murals of Napoli, and two large, rustic chandlers fill the room with an intimate glow in the evenings. Along the far wall is a 40s-era full bar run by 'Ray's father, Jack. Jack looks about 90, but he's got no problem tossing a bum out on his ear and he makes the best Sidecars and Americani in the world.
Above the bar, in bold brass letters, are nailed "The Rules."

The Rules:
No Powers
No Fights
Watch Your Language
Keep Your Politics to Yourself
If We've Got The Stuff For it, We'll Make It

Don't Forget To Smile. You're getting Pizza

to the right of the bar is a door to the new kitchen (more on that later!)
to the left of the bar is a staircase leading up the the second floor. The second floor's decor is more modern, but also more.. durable, somehow. even high tech. the floor plan is more relaxed on the second floor, with more couches and coffee tables, then traditional tables. During normal business, the second floor is reserved for meta humans (especially public figures) as a retreat from being in the public eye. to that end, there is actually a side elevator that goes directly to the second floor, and an open balcony for alightment.
------------------------------------------------------

So that's pretty much the Shop, you know. I mean there's more, loads more... maybe on a slow night, you can get Ray or even old Jack to talk more about the place.
And in any case...... drop by, have a slice and a coke like the old adverts used to say. With all the super clientele, the Pie Shop is open for business all day!

Be sure to say Hi to Ray, he loves meeting new meeting new people.

{ooc: this is intended to be a hang out, feel out your character outside the tights, enjoy the literary gluttony of talking about food, and just generally socializing with other characters. Consider this thread to be temporally independent of any other stories going on on the forums (so you can pop in, or out, any time, regardless of other stories you might be involved in)}

The Menu

In the Past, Ray's was just a place to grab a slice, but it's success and it's growth enabled various Rays over the years to expand the concept. Nowadays, the Pie Shop is as much a gastro-pub as it is a pizzaria.

The Staff

Ray DiPorto (aka Johnny):
Ray is the current face of the Pie Shop. He's in his early 60's with a bit of a potbelly and rosy cheeks. his snow white hair is thin across the top of his head and his blue eyes are oversize behind his thick prescription glasses but the first thing everyone remembers is his full white beard, neatly trimmed, and his wide, laughing smile.
Ray is almost always right up front as you walk into the shop, unless he's chatting with a patron somewhere else deeper inside. He's jovial and always cheerful and slips in and out of italian as he talks, despite being born and raised right here in Clarkstown.

He has a great respect of superheroes and is dedicated to making them feel at home and comfortable in his place but it's the kids of Clarkstown that he cares for the most. He likes to think of the Pie Shop as a safe place for kids to congregate after school and makes an effort to keep an eye on them, and keep up with a few regular faces (making sure they keep up with their school work, eh?). He's also got a habit of giving away free sodas to the kids who have to wait their for commuting parents to get off work. As such, there's almost always one or two school kids, from twelve to eighteen at the restaurant.
His wife died of cancer in 1988, and her portrait hangs above the door. he has one son, Lorenzo Raimondo, and a Daughter, Gina.
___________________

Lorenzo Raimondo DiPorto (aka Enzo)
Enzo is Ray’s son and eldest child. He’s in his mid-twenties and trying to evolve the Shop into something that will appeal to a greater variety of people. He claims to be 5’10” and works hard to keep the slowly growing pudge at bay. He has brown eyes, like his mother, Helena, and black hair that he keeps clipped short. Although he’s not a big smiler like his father and best friend, TC, he has an infectious laugh and welcoming personality otherwise. Enzo is generally on the move. He’s been keeping the books since he graduated college and is constantly juggling the various demands of the traditional pie business and the newer, contemporary restaurant. He makes a point, though, to be up front as much as possible, to hang out with his dad and TC and to keep up a rapport with the regulars.

It was Enzo’s idea to refashion the pie shop as a culinary experience and meta-human sanctuary. He’d never admit it, but he came up with the idea as a way of getting a particular super-hero to become a regular at the shop.
He had a huge crush on a girl named Alexa who used to work at the shop, back in high school, for which he is constantly teased by his younger sister, Gina.
___________________

Thomas Christopher Ward (aka TC)
TC has worked at Ray’s since he was 14 years old. He’s in his mid-20’s, a little over 6’, with an athletic frame (he was a linebacker in high school). He has soft blue eyes and a short, chaotic twist of black hair that convinces most casual patrons that he’s related to the rest of the DiPortos. Like Ray, he seems to always be smiling, but where Ray always seems cheerful, TC’s smiles range from rueful smirks to childish exuberance. His mother says he’s got too much personality to fit in his body, but at work it only comes through as boyish good cheer and brotherly camaraderie. He has a habit of giving friends and regulars nicknames, with their blessing or not. Some, like “Enzo” for Lorenzo have become more well used than the person’s real name in certain circles.

He is eager to help everyone, even patrons he knows are likely villains. You might say he takes the shop’s rule, “Smile, You’re Getting Pizza” to heart, and is hopeful that, at least in this small way, we can all connect as humans (and aliens and intergalactic super cats…)
When the store is slow, Ray let’s TC come and go as he pleases, but often TC hangs out and helps the new generation of kids who hang out at Ray’s with their homework.
He’s best friends with Lorenzo DiPorto, and they’ve known each other since they were five years old.
___________________

John Raimondo DiPorto Sr. (Jack, Nonno/Grandpa Jack)
Nonno Jack retired as the face of Ray’s in ’92, but when Enzo remodeled the back of the building to be a more complete restaurant he agreed to come back and bartend. He’s mostly six feet tall but carries his thin, wiry frame with an indolent sort of slouch. He’s never without his ‘Black Crystal’ Lemtoshs on and is perpetually smirking as if enjoying a joke only he can hear. Generally, Jack spends his time ‘secretly’ watching Soccer on the ancient portable TV he’s got stashed behind the bar, and occasionally chats with customers.

When he’s not at the Shop, which is almost never, it seems like, he’s generally getting an espresso with his ex-wife, Sophia, as they’ve reconnected in recent years. When he is around, he spoils the girls who work, or have worked at the shop shamelessly.
___________________

Mahala White
One of the rare “older” hires at the Shop, Mahala is the delivery driver and occasional hostess at Ray’s. She met TC and Enzo once when they all still attended college, infamously kneeing the drunken villain, SiniSTAR, in the balls and tossing him out of a bar. Later, She bumped back into the guys when she needed a job. She’s a full figured girl in her mid twenties, originally from Houston (with an accent that adds a little cowboy hospitality to the day to day at Ray’s.) She’s only worked for Ray for three years, but already she and her best friend, Marcus, have become part of the family.

Mahala’s one of the only up-front employees that seems to take her job seriously. She works hard and is always sure to let someone know where she is, how long she’ll be gone, and when she’ll be back. Despite her boisterous reputation, she’s normally laid back and quiet, leading some to think she’s shy, or has a lot of secrets.

Lorenzo saw a common site,

Lorenzo saw a common site, nothing he could ever pin down to a time or day, but it had a regular occurrence. "Hey Sticks! Here for more leftovers?" The monolith never spoke back. Lorenzo knew Stickers since he was just a tike on the block. "Let me get the old man, wait here." Lorenzo went back inside. Arch stood passively waiting.

Jack came out back and broke into a toothy grin "Hey Watch, you know the rules, no pizza unless you come in for awhile." The old man was CONVINCED Arch could talk but chose not to. Nothing anyone told him would convince him otherwise. With a faint click Arch nodded slowly once. With the sheer size of some meta creatures the back door was much wider than the front entrance. Jack pushed the doors wide and waved Arch in.

"Watch, you remember that cape... what was his name? Admiral Ignition? You know the one, wore a sailing hat but threw fireballs." The old man reached high to clap the metal golem on the shoulder. He still had not been able to convince Arch to go past the bottom step of the stairs going up. With a deep whine and more than one sickening crack noise Arch settled in a seated position on the bottom step leading up to the second floor. "Watch, you change at a snails pace, I don't think I will last long enough to see you climb those stairs." Arch didn't reply. "So Admiral Ignition, do you remember that medal he wore? Said he won it in a game of bones with Davey Jones himeself?" Jack knew how to prod Arch into some sort of action.

Arch's passive face seemed to get.. even more passive for a second. A moment later some sparks flew from inside his chassis. A small crafting arm extended and held out a replica of the medal. Jack snagged it. "Ha, knew it had a patch over the skull eye! Winston owes me twenty! WINSTON! GET YER HEAD OUT FROM UNDER MY TAP AND PAY UP!"

With that jack went back to his bar area leaving Arch sitting on the step. Sometimes Arch left right away, sometimes he stayed for a few hours. Whenever Arch stood is when he would be handed pizzas and some shelter cards to hand out on his late night patrols.

On this particular day the Villain Sin Reaper walked into the restaurant. There was nothing really special about other than his glowing purple eyes or so people thought He came in with regular clothes. A pair of chino pants with a henley shirt black hair slicked back like any other typical Italian. Some of his mob friends that he met when coming to this world told him about the place and he decided to try out the Italian cuisine.

"Ciao, Signore," Ray said to

"Ciao, Signore," Ray said to the new comer, "Slices and pies are here up front... but you're welcome to have a seat and stay a while." He waved two fingers down past the ovens.

Lorenzo came in from the back kitchen into the pizza oven area.
"Hey, TC." he said to the young man stretching dough behind Ray.
"Hey, Enzo! I didn't think you were working today."
"I'm not." Lorenzo said. He stepped over to Ray, as Ray directed the purple-eyed customer past the ovens to the dining room. "Hey Pop, The tinman is here. Nonno Jack's with him now, but I figured we could find some left overs for him to hand out?"

Ray waved his hand as if to shoo his son, as he pushed past the younger man and made to lead the stranger to a table.
"Yes yes, of course we do, what are you telling me for? Signore, Can we make you a table?."

Ray leads his guest into the dinning room, seating him in the near right corner so that Sin can see anyone entering the space either from the stairs or the front pathway. As Sin finishes talking, Ray is already shaking his head 'no.'

"Sadly, Signore, you have been misled. La mia carissima made the best Lasagna." his hands move circles around his words, "We follow her recipe, sure but... It is very good. Our Lasagna, but it is no longer the best. Can we get you anything else, eh? Some birra or Vino, perhaps?" he smiles again, whatever sadness in his countenance evaporating. "We have Cola in the glass bottle like the old days, too, made with real sugar..."

[hah, TC is my main, and he works there.... granted he doesnt USE his powers at the shop... i'd say as long as Speedy isnt blowing things over or leaving a trail of flames through the place, I'm sure he could get a job there.. ESPECIALLY if he's local.. Ray's big on hiring kids who grew up in the Pie Shop, once their old enough to be hired.]

The entrance bell rang again,

The entrance bell rang again, and what those that looked towards the front entrance saw was a plus-sized caucasian woman in her mid-20s and in the shop's gear, with black waiter slacks, a black double grommet belt, black cross-trainers, a silver ankh and a silver cartouche necklace, and a pokewalker attached to her belt head towards the hostess station. She had her shoulder-length brown and firetruck red vertical striped hair tied up in a low ponytail below her hat, her brown eyes darting around the room before focusing on the POS monitor at the station. She seemed relatively short, about 5'6" to most eyes, while she ruffled through her pocket and pulled out her employee ID card and slid it through the card reader. With a few presses on the monitor, she replaced her card back into her pockets, saw there were no deliveries just yet and looked up.

"Ray, I'm clocked in," She called in her slightly gravelly alto before proceeding to the pizza ovens to check the level of depletedness of the pizza boxes.

"Hey Mahala," TC said as the girl walked in. He smiled over his shoulder while Lorenzo gave the girl his usual smile and head-nod.

"Ahh," Ray said, smiling as the girl clocked in, "Ciao, ragazza. You're early, today.... but this is good, i think. this gentleman needs breadsticks..." looks back towards Sin and winks, "...perhaps some garlic knots? and a helping of Helena's Lasgna."

Sin Reaper smiled back. His friend Donny Corleone recommended this place. Nowadays Donny was a big time mobster but he grew up around this place. His grandfather Antonio knew Ray from way back. They fought in the war together and grew up in the same neighborhood.

"Oh by the way, Donny says hi. He was the one that recommended this place to me."

Mahala smiles slightly at TC and gives Lorenzo a bemused look. "Sure thing Ray, figured I'd come in a bit early since I lost some time last week while Iryet was in the shop getting her transmission replaced," Mahala said and winced. "That bill took a lot out of my grocery budget." She got to work on the fresh breadsticks, knots and pulled a portion of the Lasagna out of the front shop fridge to cook. "Marcus said to say hi, I had to drop him off up in Downtown today before coming into work. Something about a job upgrading a bank's security system on their computers."

((Marcus is Mahala's best friend. He's a few years older than her, hispanic, a computer whiz, and a major anime nerd. He's a very quirky guy, and has come into Ray's with Mahala on a lot of occasions with a laptop and a stack of papers that're enigmas to computer problems he calls "light reading" [one of these enigmas is P vs NP]. The guys know him for his love of microbrewed rootbeer and meatball pizza.))

Ray's eyes go a bit flat at Sin's words, but he sighs and and nods. "Yes, Donny was a good boy. Doesn't come by much any more, not since his mama died. Please enjoy, signore. If you need anything at all let any of us know. Il nostro piacere!" Ray nods again, and makes his way back to his usual spot behind the board up front.

TC's up front layering the usual mix of cheeses on a pie, while Lorenzo is using the wooden pie peel to grab to-go boxes from the stack above the oven.
"Marcus dropping by, later?" TC asked. "Some of the Clarks-high kids like picking his Geekness' brain. I think it's midterms or something." TC moves out of the way the best he can so Mahala can get the diminished Lasagna tray to cut a portion out.

Mahala chuckled. "I believe he said that the job'd only take about three hours, depending on how fussy the bank employees are," she said and placed the breadsticks in the oven before getting to cutting out that portion of lasanga. "He could be by, but he's gonna have to take the train down here, or a cab, since I'm on clock and he hasn't saved enough yet to get himself that Prius. He keeps on buying new computer parts for Monica and his Minecraft server Stephanie. I'm not gonna josh him for the library of anime he's got or the paid crunchyroll account, as I get to use em when we have anime nights." Once the lasanga's cut out, she places it in the usual portion-warming spot before going to finish up the knots.

Lorenzo adjusts the helping

Lorenzo adjusts the helping of Lasagna on the metal tray, and slides it into the pizza oven and removes the now warm, crispy, Italian-style breadsticks, plunks them in a vase-like mug, and hands them off to Mahala. He then pulls a Pie out that was cooking and shakes it out into the waiting pie box for TC to cut. Ray works his way between the younger generation just in time to greet the local customer, here to pick up his pizza.

Mahala gets the knots in the oven, then grabs the small serving tray and places the breadstick order on it, along with a thing of marinara and takes it to its destined table. "Here ya go," She says with a slight smile and sets the order on the table in front of the customer. "Your knots and lasanga should be out in a few minutes. Can I get'cha a refill on your water?" She clutches the small serving tray in front of her, waiting for an answer. Just then, the phone up front started to ring. Maybe a delivery? She thought.

((I'm assuming she's talking to Sin and that Ray'd gotten him a glass of water at first before the alcohol came to him.))

As Ray and the take-out

As Ray and the take-out customer chat about local events, Grandpa Jack walks up from the back room with an old fashioned sort of swagger.
"Eh, Lorenzo. Cose che non va? hai dimenticato il nostro amico??" he said. his voice with casual, even friendly sounding, but all the workers and some of the regulars knew that Old Jackie didn't speak italian unless he was annoyed.
"No I..." Lorenzo said, closing up the take-out order, slipping some red pepper flakes in the seam.
"Allora?" Jack said. This time, the word was more like a command.
"Mah!" Lorenzo said, sliding the pizza box down to his father, whiping his hands quickly on his apron. "Mi dispiace, Nonno. I meant to check but forgot. Papa..." Lorenzo turned to Ray. "I'm gonna take this half a cheese pie and the meatball TC just finished out for the tin man to pass around...è giusto?"

"Si, Enzo, Si.... va bene," Ray said with a dismissive wave of his hand, transitioning instantly back to a conversation about Clarkstown High's up and coming Halfback.
With his father's blessing, Lorenzo quickly stuffed the remaining half of an original cheese pizza while TC boxed up a meatball pie that was still steaming on the rack.

[yeah, we can assume Ray brought water back with him when he seated Sin]

The phone rings, giving the take-out customer an excuse to leave. Ray pulls the old, corded phone off it's receiver.
"Ciao, this is Ray, what can we make for you?" he says, as if he answered his house phone, leaning against the corner made by the meeting of the door framing and the counter. "Eh?.....Yes. Eh, yes....All right, All right. So you want the knots and the full caprese... la pizza d'oro and l'aqua pazza sandwich with some pesto?" there was a pause, as he listened, "it's a haddock, today... or we have the salmon patty, but it's not as good, don't get that. Va bene. maybe...." he held the phone to his chest. and turned to to find only TC sharing the space with him. "Hey a, quanto tempo per un neapolitano? for l'oro?" TC shrugged.
"Maybe fifteen minutes, for a good soup?" he said. Ray returned to the phone and TC immediately went into a flurry to prep the dough to toss in the oven.
"We'll send someone over very soon. How are you paying today, Miss...?"

A few moments later, the phone clicks and Ray shouts around the ovens, "Hey, Ragazza! tell the back we need l'insalata caprese, e L'aqua pazza to go, and some of the pesto." As he says this, the oven door can be heard slamming back closed.

"Sure hon!" Mahala calls back

"Sure hon!" Mahala calls back and excuses herself to tell the back that. She plans on grabbing the water pitcher on the way back. Peeking in the back, she gives them the order for a to-go, most likely her wheels, and to hot box it with enough space for the pizza. After that, she heads for the hostess stand and grabs the water pitcher to fill up customers' water glasses with while mentally preparing for the delivery. "We got a card slip or cash for that one? Want to make sure I grab a pen in case."

"You Ray?" a large fellow

"Are youse Ray?" a large fellow with coarse russet hair and leonine features asked the pizzaria owner.

"I'm Ray," Ray said, noting the embroidered purple patch on the other guy's shirt. It had a pink border and the name "LEO" in script, also in pink. "What can I do for you .... Leo?"

"How'd ya ...?" Leo asked, a bit confused. Then the light of realization moved behind his amber eyes. "Heh! Good one! I got 24 pallets of Amerikatt Cola for ya. Where you want it?"

“I didn't order any Amerikatt Cola,” Ray said.

“It's a gift,” Leo said. “The office said th' boss'd be here. I'm sure she kin clear this up.”

“Should I go get her, Mr. Ray?” a redheaded, teenaged waitress asked.

“No need to disturb her,” Ray said.

Coincidentally, at that time, the elevator came down from the second floor, its door opening to reveal a young cat in a purple costume with pink stars.

“Mew?”

“Nah. No problem, Boss. I wuz just tellin' Mr. Ray here that I got 24 pallets of Amerikatt Cola for him. He wasn't sure if it was legit or nothin', that's all.”

Amerikatt cleared her throat.

“Oh, c'mon, Boss! Do I gotta?”

Amerikatt nodded her head up and down.

Leo removed a worn index card from his pocket. Then, blushing a bit and clearing his throat, he began to sing in the most dulcet and mellifluous voice that Ray, the staff, or the customers had ever heard.

Amerikatt Cola
Hits the spot!

Twelve full ounces ...
That's a lot!

Twice as much --
And Boysenberry, too!

Amerikatt Cola is the drink for you!

It's the paws that refreshes!

“What a magnificent voice you have,” Ray said.

“Thanks, Mr. Ray. That's whut the Boss sez. But let's face it, who eva hoid uva a truck driva makin' it as a singa? 'Specially a two-time losa just outta stir?”

“Don't underestimate yourself, Leo. You've got something special.”

“Thanks, again. I 'ppreciate that. Oh, Boss! Sista Mary Catherine, down at th' orphanage, sez thanks fer th' cases of fish-stix. She sez th' kids really eat 'em up ….”

Leo leaned toward Amerikatt and whispered conspiratorially.

“I think she wuz makin' a joke.”

Leo nodded.

“Anyways, she sez she can't quite figure out whut ta do wit' the case of Mice-A-Roni. I think she's kinda scareda rodent-shaped pasta.”

Leo shrugged.

“I sez ta her, I sez, 'Put some cheese over it, Sista'. You shoulda seed th' look she gimme. I remember how she wuz when I wuz at th' orphanage. My knuckles are still sore!”

Leo shook his hands for effect.

“If you'll just sign right heeya, Mr. Ray, I'll unload them palettes an' scram.”

“Certainly," Ray said, signing the manifest on the clipboard. "Just drive around back to the delivery entrance.”

“Thanks. Oh, by the way …! The boss here sez that you make th' bestest I-talian sausage an' peppa grindas in th' state, so don't be serprized if me an' Tige an' summa th' other guys drops by one night afta we gets off our shift.”

With that, Leo left through the front door, driving his truck around back to make his delivery.

"Cos'e questo, Miss? You understand... the mice, they are not so good gifts, but they are at least small. Where am I supposed to put tutti...molti tutt. Oddio! We do not have an extra warehouse sitting around..."
Ray whipes his forehead with the back of.his hand, and then dries his hands in a towel, before kneeling down in front of the super-cat.
"tu spero enjoy drinking that cola as much as you like selling it, gattina....or we gonna have a problematic relationship..' his voice is serious, patriarchal, but there is a mirthful twinkle in his eyes.

"Oh, sure. No prob. We'll have that portable refrigerated storage unit to ya in 'bout ... oh ... 20 ... 25 minutes."

"Mew-mew!" Amerikatt said, looking a bit relieved, a nervous smile upon her face as her cape brooch chirped off.

"Sure hon," Mahala says and

"Sure hon," Mahala says and smiles at Sin. She refilled his water glass, then set the pitcher down on the hostess stand before going and grabbing the lasanga and now ready knots and placing em on the serving tray. She relays Sin's message to Ray before heading back to his table and placing his odrder in front of him. Seeing as the bar hadn't yet readied his glass of wine, she ducked behind it and poured him one of the house specialites that goes best with the lasanga, by Ray's reccommendation. Mahala rarely, if ever, drank alcohol. The most she has been seen drinking was a modified peach sangria/fuzzy navel on new year's after she'd clocked out for the night, and even then Marcus had walked her home.

After she poured the wine glass, she brought it to Sin's table. "Let us know if you want any more, though TC or Lorenzo may have to get you as soon as my delivery is up," She said as she set it upon the table. Noticing Amerikatt talking with Ray, she smiled slightly. She had a fondness for cats, being a child of Bast after all. "That's a lot of cola," she commented when she saw the pallets of cola coming in as she was replacing the serving tray. "I bet you and Ibet would get along well, she loves cat-safe rootbeer floats."

Mahala smiled a little. "Perhaps you'd like the recipe I use for hers? She is a picky kitty at times, so I don't always use the mint in it," Mahala said as she checked on the pizza in the oven. It'd be a few more minutes before it was ready, along with the rest of the delivery order.

Sin Enjoyed his diner as he cut a piece of the lasagna with a fork and put it in his mouth. It was the best lasagna he had ever tasted. The Shadow Assissin then tok a bite of the rol and felt like he was in heaven. He continued to enjoy his food. Sin looked up at he door when he sensed a familiar presence.

Shepherd had entered the restaurant dressed te same as always whether doing hero work or off duty clad in a black lightly armored leather vest with black leather pants, buckled boots spiked ninja bracers ad his favorite greyish blue leather sleeveless hooded trench coat. Shepherd had then noticed Amerikatt and chuckled as he looked down and petted her. He enjoyed Amerikatt's soda. She would always leave him a can in the base in return for the treats he left her.

Jack went into the back as

Jack went into the back as the soda was being unloaded. "Hey Watch, take some of that and hand it out will you old man?" At first Arch did nothing. Eventually with an almost laborious turn Arch was looking at the elderly bar keep. With the slightest nod Arch stood.

"Lorenzo the pies! Watch is leaving!" The old man looked at the rust golem. "Did you go upstairs yet? How bout at least the second step?" Arch didn't react. Lorenzo rushed back with the day old stock. It wasn't in the typical pizza box, instead it was in a highly polished aluminum crate. The heat from Archs internal crafting core would keep the pie warm for hand out. Arch had not thought this up. Old Jack had after he saw Arch fold the pizza box with pizza in it down to a size that would fit into one of his many storage compartments. To Arch biological sustenance was sustenance regardless of presentation or temperature. 'When are you going to start calling him Stickers, you know its what the neighborhood kids have called him for years." Lorenzo had this conversation with Jack once every few months. Jack would always reply. "No grown man should call another man 'Stickers' " Lorenzo would chuckle and point out that Arch was not actually a man.

Arch left out the usual side door. Turning left at the end of the alley Lorenzo knew exactly where Arch was headed. "Going to see that poor homeless man that wanders the park and forgets where the shelters are again..." Lorenzo frowned as he closed the side door... Arch still hadn't taken to identifying why a door needed to be shut.... How the city could let an old man with Alzheimers just rot away in a park and do nothing about it... well at least Stickers took care of him in his own way.

Lorenzo went back up front.

"Ciao, Signore!" Ray says to the new customer entering the shop. "You want a slice, or a pie? we've got seats in the back there, if you want to stay for a while." he waves two fingers down past the ovens. then lets the smile drop for a moment, "Up the stairs there, if you want some privacy. Per favore... remember, this is a restaurant, not a do-jojo, eh?"

"Motlo Bene, Signore. TC-"

"I heard him, Ray." TC interrupted, already cutting four original slices out of the closest pan and placing them on a tray. Opening the various containers of cut ingredients, he layered the large, paper-thin disks of pepperoni on first, then a sprinkling of cheeses, followed by the crumbled sausage and vegetables. With another sprinkling of cheese he got the pan on a wooden peel and put the slices in the oven to re-cook.

"anything else, Signore? Una Coca-Cola, perhaps?"

The bell on the door jingled

The bell on the door jingled and a very tall woman opened the door. She would've stood around 6'4" barefoot, but with the 5" boots she was wearing, she towered over the majority of people. Clad in tight dark blue jeans and a sleeveless red fitted shirt, her curves might have gotten her mistaken for a supermodel, if it wasn't for the impressive amounts of muscles that covered her body. A silver necklace depicting an eagle in flight with an unfurled American flag gripped in its claws adorned her neck. As she stepped inside, she removed her sunglasses, revealing cornflower blue eyes. Her shoulder-length brown hair was tousled, as if she'd been moving quickly.

Alexa looked around Ray's and thought about her time as a waitress here during and after high school. A few years ago, she'd moved onto more... heroic pursuits, but she still tried to make it into Ray's at least once a month to see the people who had become like a second family to her when she worked there. She waited quietly in line for the man at the counter to finish with his order, a crooked smile on her full lips.

TC Ward twisted around from his work, at Lorenzo's words, and smiled brightly at their old co-worker. "Hey! Long time, stranger!"

She strode on down the aisle, stopping to give Ray a hug and TC a high five, since he was busy with the oven. She continued on back and into the restaurant part. She immediately spied the old man, who was half-crouched under the bar, reaching for something. "Hey, Nonno!"

"Ahh, Little Aleccia!" Jack

"Ahh, Little Aleccia!" Jack said, as soon as he heard Alexa's voice. With his slouch-shouldered swagger the old man makes his way around the bar and half way across the room to meet the young woman. Even if he had stood up straighter, his head would fall below her shoulders. He wrapped his thin, wiry arms around her waist and gave a firm squeeze, though perhaps not as firm as it was all those years ago, when they'd first met. "You are more beautiful now than the last time I saw you. And taller! It's certainly not that kale and key-no-ah all the young kids are eating these days, eh? What's so wrong about a nice big sausage once and a while. huh? My Sofia had one every day since we met and she's the most beautiful creature any god every created!"

Mahala smiled at Alexa as she passed. She'd gotten to know her as a regular when she was in-between orders. She then heard the ding from the back kitchen's notification system to say that their part of the order was ready. Mahala checked the pie, and seeing it was ready, got it out of the oven and into an awaiting to go box with the extra pizza paddle. She cut it and finished the rest of the order and took it to the back kitchen to get the hot box and then merged the two parts of the order. Getting back up to the hostess stand, she placed herself on the run (getting the order sticker and slip in process) and then grabbed some cheese and peppers and placed them in the box before heading to the door.

"I'm out on a run, see ya'll in about thirty minutes!" She called back into the shop as she left. Heading to her car, she placed the order in the back of her silver Ford Focus and drove away from the shop on her run.

Alexa blushed prettily at the old scoundrel's comment about being more beautiful and gently wrapped her big arms around him, "Nonno, you old charmer. You say that every time I come in here."

"Kale and Quinoa?" She made a face at the thought of that. "I'll take a good T-bone any day of the week."

Alexa and the old man chatted for a few more minutes, then she bent down and kissed him on the cheek before turning and heading back up front. Once there, she plunked down in her favorite booth, sitting catty-cornered in the booth so her back was against the wall and she could stretch her long legs out underneath the table to rest on the opposite corner of the other side. She waved to Mahala and just took the time to relax and let the familiarity of the shop soothe her worries and frustrations away.

"So, Aly... Enzo's making your usual... if you want somethin' else, i'd tell him quick before he makes a bigger ass out of himself." TC smiled with one side of his mouth.

TC had already thrown a batch of garlic knots into the oven, while Ray talked and leaned against the prep table with his arms folded across his chest. When he didn't move, Ray tried to emphasize the command with a hard stare.
"Occhio!" he said. To which TC only smiled. "....bah, pussa via!" Ray said, throwing his arms up before motioning Sabrina deeper into the restaurant, giving her a seat near to Alexa's.
"Mi Scusi. What will you have to drink, today, mio tesoro?"

"Yeah, I'll have some Dr.

"Yeah, I'll have some Dr. Pepper. Thanks." Alexa answered, shifting her gaze back to TC and smiling up at him.

She returned the wave to Sabrina. The two were acquainted from both being regulars at the Shop. And, though Sabrina didn't realize it, Alexa had saved her life a few times. To say that the beat reporter had a habit of sticking her nose into trouble would be an understatement.

"Buongiorno, Sabrina." Alexa greeted her.

((If Sabrina is a hero and would be able to take care of herself, just let me know and I'll change it. :-D ))

as TC grabs a dr. pepper bottle from the back, Lorenzo is pulling out the pepperoni Parm and Original pies. they head over to alexa's table.
"Your-" Lorenzo began.
"-pies, miss. and your doctor pepper. Your fried Mozzarella will be ready in a moment." TC smiled a massive, shit-eating grin as Lorenzo glares, before skipping away to the kitchen for the appetizer.

"So, uh... hope it's as good as you remember." Lorenzo said with a rue smirk. he always said it, but he usually tired to make it sound like a running joke. "so, how's the world outside of clarkstown?"

((Sabrina is actually a mutant, the telepath and telekinetic heroine Cerebella, and can defiantly take care of herself, but in her cover as Sabrina, she plays up the idea of of being simply a gutsy, yet capable reporter...:) ))

Sabrina would smile as Alexa greets her, offering her a quick and friendly hug, before responding in Italian once more...

"Buongiorno Alexa, it is good to see you again...and it's decent Lorenzo, but there isn't any other place I'd eat in Titan besides Ray's...besides, where else would I flee to after I get shot at in Ironport...again...?"

She would utter the last tidbit teasingly, before her phone suddenly rings, quickly answering it, a gruff and weathered voice carrying a Brooklyn accent would be heard...

'Barelli, get your ass back in the office, we need a follow up piece on the Gang activity in Clarkstown, and your only decent reporter on da beat-'

Sabrina would instantly retort with equal sass, curtesy of the Italian blood within...

"Which you would see I emailed to you two hours ago if you cleaned that inbox of yours of junkmail for Viagra, I'm on break!"

With that, she would curtly hang up, before sheepishly turning to both Alexa and Lorenzo, offering a genuine apologetic smile to Ray, before finally speaking...

"I'm sorry about that, work is biting my butt...didn't mean to disrupt the Restaurant..."

"Never argue with stupid people; they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience."

Alexa's mouth was already

Alexa's mouth was already full of pizza when Enzo asked his question, so Sabrina had beaten her to the punch. She hastily drank a few gulps of soda and swallowed the pizza, smiling at Enzo. "Delicious as always."

"You know how the city, every few years, will find new evidence and records of heroes that died during World War II? And then up goes their statue in Rhinehart Park? Well, my dad and I had been working at it for years and we finally dug up enough info on my grandmother, that when combined with the city's records, merited a statue for her. The unveiling and dedication was two weeks ago. Here's a picture of the plaque."

She hit a few buttons on her smartphone and then laid it on the table, so that it projected a hologram above the table.

Quote:

Marian Alexandra Graham
1913 - 1945
"Lady Liberty"
Died defending the 1st Battalion 22nd Marines from
an explosive device at the Battle of Okinawa
15 June 1945
Semper Fidelis

"That last part was requested by a surviving member of the 22nd Marines. I met him at the dedication. He said I looked just like her." Alexa looked away for a second, wiping a tear from her eye.

Ray came over to see the picture, adjusting his glasses to read, "è bella.." he whispers, draping an arm across Alexa's shoulders. Lorenzo stands by ackwardly, then heads back up front at the sound of the front door opening

"Salve!" He says as he walks to the front, "welcome to Rays. What can we get you today?"

Sabrina would suddenly hug Alexa, embracing her warmly before speaking....

"Your father and grandmother define what it means to be a hero, a paragon...at the very least I will publish articles on the both of them...people need to know about how they served this country, that they weren't just two more faces behinds masks or helmets..."

Alexa accepted the hugs and kind words graciously, wiping a few more tears away.

"Well, dad isn't a hero to anyone but me and grandma's memory. But he worked tirelessly for over 20 years trying to prove that Lady Liberty was his mother and my grandmother. I still remember the day after we moved to Titan City and he got back from Rhinehart Park. He was so furious and... insulted that she didn't have a statue there. He swore that day to dedicate his life to seeing her statue erected there. I'm glad we were finally able to get it done."

Alexa patted Ray on the hand and then turned back to her food. After a few more slices, she looked up, a smile on her face again.

"Did I mention that I moved recently? Got a new place in Highpoint."

TC came out from the back with a wide ceramic bowl. In it is a sliced loaf of pizza dough filled with melted mozzarella and the whole thing is covered in sauce and more cheese. Along with the massive appetizer, TC has a heavy duty steak knife, a fork, and a wide spoon.
"Who got a new place?" He shouted, as he came through the door to the kitchen, and towards the party.

Alexa looked over at TC as he exited the kitchen with her Fried Mozzarella. She smiled and scooched things around on the table to make room.

"I did, TC. Over in Highpoint. It's closer to work, which is nice, without being too far from the old neighborhood."

"Sounds fancy... Up and out, eh?" TC says with a smile as he sets the dish down. Up front, Lorenzo is making pies to replace the sold ones, and heating up a couple original slice for a customer. Seeing that Alexa has cheered up, Ray returns to the front and helps out his son.
"I always liked her," Ray mumbles under his breath as he passes close enough to Lorenzo for the younger man to hear.

Shane walked into Famous Rays

Shane walked into Famous Rays, holding his backpack. The young man, filled out like a college footballer, was only 17. His hair was in a crew cut, and he wore the 'Titan City GREEKS' college booster shirt well. His blue jeans were clean and his shoes were new and white. He nodded to the cooks as he took one of the rare small 2 seat front tables. The kid was new.

Limitless power.
No idea what to do with it.

"Neopolitan, sir."

"Neopolitan, sir."
Shane contemplated. Rumors of Famous Rays said the place was secure, under the threat of a medium rated Hero, somewhere. Not of the only type of hero Shane concerned himself with--an investigator with an IQ over 210 with or without telepathic talents--and even such a scion had been prepared for. He had only contempt for 'Thumpers', but they had their uses. He had left word with Sun-Thunder, who'd pass it to Boneshave, who'd pass it to the city's quiet yet desperate criminal networks. Buyers would meet him here, to be evaluated. The actual handoff would occur amid heavies getting a cut elsewhere, where they could compare intellects or their dreadful talents if they so desired. Knowing Boneshave, Shane didn't envy anyone trying to cheat the woman of her portion.

Leaving him with his usual conundrum.
I'll soon have all the money a young man could dream of. I could take up right where dad left off, point of fact I'm certain the largest portion of his inheritance was intended to make me a nice little surprise for Dad's old enemies. I've got the contacts, Dad's old pals, it would be so easy. Why am I hesitating? It's not many people left with a manual on how to be top tier evil.

Approaching Shane, Sabrina would extend her hand to the young man with a smile, greeting him with...

"Don't think I've seen you around before, I'm Sabrina Barelli, Journalist for the Promethium Herald..."

((As a telepath and fairly powerful one at that, what would she be able to sense or pick up from Shane? ))

Sabrina's casual telepathic

Sabrina's casual telepathic scan of Shane showed him to be intellectually inferior, with a damaged spacial center of his brain. His thoughts ranged from "Girls. Money. Football. Girls. Panties? Football. A car! For Girls. Phone Numbers." A typical suboptimal kid, maybe he had a drowning incident in the past or another close call with a deoxygenated brain.

Shane's shoe vibrated once (and silently) to alert him of a casual telepathic intrusion. Really? He'd been in town about five hours, fucking really? Well, can't say he hadn't been warned. Maybe she couldn't turn her scans off?. Oh well, between the nanite buffer and the 'false screen' duplicate psychic aura hardware, he was sure she'd be bored. Assuming it wasn't one of the cooks instead, Shane didn't get direction from his belt's rig.

"Oh, hi, Ms. Barelli. I've been riding the bench for the Greeks, probably won't ever make the Herald sports section, huh huh! So you like this pizza too?"

Smirking, Sabrina would reply curtly...

"Perhaps not, doesn't mean you shouldn't pine for it, and I love Ray's...."

Receiving the thoughts without a word, however unintentionally, Sabrina ponders staying for a moment and enertaining the boy's thoughts, before mentally sighing as she returns to her seat...

There is more to this kid then he's letting on, there HAS to be! She thought...

The man known as John Doe

The man known as John Doe walked into the building dressed in faded blue jeans, work boots, black t-shirt and army jacket. He also had a set of black tattoos that seems odd as if they weren't ink but something alive, his eyes were solid black as well.

He walked up to the counter and up at the menu as he waited to be served. "Hmm..."

"Uhh, Ciao, Signore. Come Va? What can we make for you?" Ray said, not exactly afraid, but always a little wary for the more intimidating characters that come into the shop.
Behind him, Lorenzo bakes up a smaller, personal pie, rather than slices, so the teen can have it Neapolitan-style.

He looked over at Ray "Oh.." He reached into his pocket and pulled out a bunch of crumpled dollars and some coins. "I take a slice of Original and a medium coke. And if I may an application?" Thought he wasn't muscular he wasn't out of shape either. Oddly enough he seemed to be as average as possible except for the eyes and tattoos that is. After recounting the coins. "On second thought make that a slice of Pepperoni Parm."

He then smiled, warmly, and waved off the crumpled bills. "You'll get me next time, Mio Amico." After Joe takes the coke, Ray grabs an application from behind the counter and a pen.

As she was finishing her meal

As she was finishing her meal, Alexa watched Sabrina get up and say hello to the teenager at the table. She noticed the look on Sabrina's face as she went back to her table. Alexa looked back over at the kid and studied him for a brief moment. To her, he looked and sounded like any other not particularly bright teenage football player. Getting up, she stepped over to Sabrina's booth and sat down across from her.

She leaned in and spoke quietly. "Okay, Ms. Hot-shot Reporter, what's wrong? I saw that look on your face."

Alexa proves to actually have highly effective mental defenses, so for Sabrina to enter, it was like opening a two-ton castle door.

*Whoa there, Sabrina! You're supposed to wait for me to open the door, not just knock and come on in.*

Alexa shook her head and reached over to her booth to snag her drink and last two pieces of pizza before turning back to Sabrina.

*Well, I guess telepathy certainly helps when you're a reporter. Now, what's so off about the kid? He looks and sounds like a teenage football player to me.*

She points to some of the available slices: peperoni parm, the Original, and the spicy sausage and mushroom. "I'd like to try one of those and one of those and one of those, and... Is that Amerikatt Cola? I'll try that, too."

Looking around, she sees some faces she's seen before. This place must be good, there's at least three people from the Whitehold.
