The below scenes have all been deleted from the final version of the Velicious Series. I will add them as I go through them on my computer.

“Life’s been real busy,” I murmured.
“I know what you’re saying, and it’s not like winter has been giving us a break either.”
“I don’t acknowledge winter.”
Cindy smiled. “Gotcha. So the usual?”
I smiled back. “Usual, please.”
“One almond latte and cheese croissant on the side.” She walked off with my order, and I sat back in the booth listening to the woman singing up front.
