The following cars are within visual range or in a pack:
None - Only one car is actually on the road.
Team Greasy Lightning
Rick stepped into the lobby of the Astoria Crest Motel, rubbing his bare hands together and blowing in them. Though it was by no means freezing outside, Rick had just finished packing the trunk of the Chancellor, including all of their coats, and his jeans-and-t-shirt couture were no match for the elements.
He went to make the turn toward their room, but Jen and Fuzz emerged from the hallway just as he got to it.
“All packed,” Rick chirped with cheer. “We can grab a bite and then go.”
“They better have coffee here,” Fuzz yawned.
“Just follow Jen,” Rick chuckled. “Putting coffee anywhere near her in the morning is like chumming the water for a shark.”
Jen lifted one eyebrow and grunted, but nonetheless followed her deep (and oddly modern) instinct to hunt coffee. Fuzz groggily trudged behind her. Rick instead grabbed a bottle of orange juice, and picked up a fresh plate at the start of the buffet line. He exchanged smiles with the man just in front of him in line. It took Rick a moment to recognize him.
“You’re Mitch, right?” Rick asked.
Mitch turned toward him. “Yeah mate. You’re from Greasy Lightning, aren’t you?”
“Yeah. I’m Rick. My wife Jen and my brother-in-law Fuzz… er… Ted… are over there,” he pointed to the pair of humanoids hunched over their drinks, nursing them as if they were the very life blood of existence.
“A pleasure, Rick. My mates Sam and Dan should be here in a minute. Just grabbing something before we go.”
“Same here. You guys want to join us? It would be nice to have a little conversation to start the day, and I’m afraid these two aren’t quite ready yet.”
Mitch nodded. “Yeah, that works.”
Rick filled his plate with scrambled eggs, fruit, and bacon, and also snagged a single-serve yogurt cup. They walked over to the table just in time for Jen to get up and drag herself to the buffet. On the way, she smacked Fuzz in the back of the head.
He snorted and startled; Rick hadn’t realized that the young cop had fallen asleep.
“I’m coming, ma!” he shouted, followed by a loud expletive as he banged his knee on the table jumping up to follow Jen.
Rick shook his head, then grinned and glanced over at Mitch. “Sometimes it’s just fun to watch, I guess. I don’t mean it to be a jerk. It’s just… cute… how they can’t function this early without coffee.”
“Right. What about you?” Mitch smiled.
“Oh, I’m used to it. I get up at just after 5 in the morning for work. These two?” Rick chuckled, then pointed at his wife. “She doesn’t start work till 10 am or later. Once I go down, she binges Netflix most of the night. And him?” Rick’s finger swung over to Fuzz. “Swing shift. I don’t think he’s seen a sunrise in 15 years.”
mitch nodded. He noticed out of the corner of his eye that his teammates had arrived. He gestured to them to get food at join the table. Jen returned to the table with an entirely predictable breakfast of yogurt, granola, and fruit, as well as a second cup of coffee.
“Feeling human yet, hun?” Rick asked.
“Merrrrr…” she replied.
“So why do you call him Fuzz, anyway?” Mitch queried.
“Ah…” RIck paused for a second, caught slightly off guard. “Well, he was a juvenile delinquent. Then became a cop. Irony, right?”
Mitch thought for a moment. “Yeah, or a change of paradigm. Kind of like your choice for a car this time around. At Roulette Runner you had that little Suzume, now this time around you bring a big old Ardent Chancellor. Any reason for the big change there?”
“Yeah,” Jen blurted. “I didn’t want to drag my ass on the ground, but I broke the other car.”
“No one said you broke the car, hon.”
“Tell that to Fuzz.”
“Like I said, no one said that,” Rick quipped.
“I heard that, Rick! Just remember, I get shotgun first!”
Shit, Rick thought.
“Anyway,” he continued. “It’s not all different. The Suzume’s engine is under the hood of the Chancellor. And it just seemed right to be going on a coastal cruise in either a land yacht or a convertible. Guess which one we found first.”
