So they said at the end of each day, and the end of each night, as they traipsed in, singly, and in pairs, filling up the booths and barstools at the Supernaturella Café.
Nyx and Electa had been friends for many years, having met right here at the end of another long, and long forgotten days work. The Café was out of time, having rested, in one form or another, exactly where it lay through time out of mind. The faces frequenting it altered, new ones came, old ones faded, or burned all the brighter for their years. None of them came here for the coffee, that sludge had not lasted so well, but it passed the time while waiting for friends, warming hands that passed through the ether to lead the living, for fair reasons, or for foul. The demon and the ghost were often on the same side, the overruling passion of mischief uniting their goals. Still, sometimes each would do what was right and good to their own eyes, putting them in opposition, but work was work, and at days end, their friendship was stronger than anything.
As the evening drew on, they were joined at the sticky, coffee-ringed table by other friends, also longstanding patrons of the Café. Few places attracted such an eclectic clientele, it was a place to rest after all, to replenish, where causes and concerns, and battles for souls and lives were left outside. Ezriel and Kip had shared many nights, many drinks, and even more laughs in this rusty old Café. Sliding over the vinyl seats, resting weary bones in the company of their mates. As the last Buddy Holly track flipped into play in the old jukebox, the evening of relaxation, of sharing stories in safety wound to an end. Rising, they headed outside, arm in arm, ready now to find more fun in the darkness, as the 'CLOSED' sign was flipped in the window.
