Flo fought back the frown she felt coming on with that statement. What had happened to this girl that she hadn't had anything hot in weeks? She disappeared into the kitchen with a nod and poured a mug of hot water before pulling out a tea bag. She nibbled her bottom lip a little as she thought over the situation. There had to be something she could do...
She put the smile back on as she emerged from the kitchen, carefully placing the cup in front of the girl. "I'll go start your eggs; they should be done in about five minutes," she assured her before disappearing to the kitchen again.
She looked down at the steaming cup in her small hands, feeling the warmth radiate from it. She waited a few moments before she gingerly took a sip. It warmed her throat and her stomach.
She looked to where Flo had gone, wondering if the woman knows about her situation, but probably not. Most people thought that she was just a thief and moocher because of the way she lived. Ebony had to steal in order to survive.
Her body trembled a little bit as she heard the door swing open and other customers begin to pour in. How would they react when they saw her?
(((((OOC: I think we need more people here to take on some of the FCs...)))))

(Well, she is Flo, after all- mother hen extrodinare.
And yes, more people would help, but that doesn't mean we can't pseudo-puppet until they're claimed...)
"'ey Red," greeted Ramone as the large man walked in and took his customary seat in a booth. "Want your usual?" He smiled at the nod he received in return. "I'll go let Flo know; she'll be out in a minute." With that he walked into the kitchen and returned to the coffee pot to refill his mug. "Others are here," he told her as he poured.
"Mm-hm," she responded absently as she watched the eggs.

Anastasia continued to walk. It was hot out, but the occasional breeze helped- she got less than that when he was racing, so this wasn't so bad. Although it would help if it wasn't so dry...
She hopped the speeder got caught. Not only could he seriously hurt someone going that fast, but if the town- Radiator Springs, the billboard had said- was nearby, who knew what kind of damage he could cause if he lost control.
Ebony just sat at the booth, observing those coming into the diner. She didn't know any of them, but they were obviously interesting people. There was a retired Army man with a crew cut and wearing fatigues as if he were still serving and a down-to-earth, friendly-looking hippy who, when he noticed her, nodded and smiled in her direction.
She also saw a short, medium-build man with black hair talking to a boy with blonde hair. What they were speaking about she couldn't understand a word, but pegged them as Italians just from the sounds of their accents.
Interesting people, she thought, Maybe I might get to learn to like this place and stay for awhile.

(Online for a little bit while I check stuff for college...)
Finishing the plate, Flo arranged the toast and brought it to the girl sitting by herself. "Here ya go, hun. If you need anythin' else, just let me know. Name's Flo, and that's my husband Ramone," she introduced, gesturing towards the hispanic nearby. He raised his mug towards her in greeting before taking another sip.

Hearing another car approaching, Anastasia turned to see one passing by the billboard. Removing her hand from her pocket, she waved at them in hopes that they would stop. "Hey!" she called, despite the fact that they probably wouldn't be able to hear her over the engine.
