"So are you hungry?" Joe asks Pepper as his car pulls out of the police parking lot "um…yes… sir." "Do you like pizza?" "I've never had it" "oh… well its really good and Pizzaria Uno isn't far from here, they make some of the best pizza in Chicago." Pepper says nothing as the car drives ten minutes and comes to a stop in a crowed parking lot.
They both get out of the car and walk into Pizzaria Uno, Pepper followers Joe to a booth and as they sit down she looks around and takes in the smell of fresh baked bread and graded cheese. "Hello I'm Sara your waitress this evening, what can I get you two to drink?" "Water" Pepper say's as she opens the menu and starts looking at everything listed. "I'll have water too, so do you see anything you like Pepper?" "I'm not sure there's so much to pick from….you can pick I don't really care sir" "alright um Sara we'll just have each one slice of cheese pizza, sausage pizza and mushroom pizza." "Coming right up" Sara walks off and Pepper looks down at her black teeny shoes.
"Pepper I know this is all new for you and for me as well but I want to get to know you and for you to get to know me. We have a lot of time to make up and I just want to take it one day at a time if that's alright with you?" "Yeah….um sure....sir" "good, there's something I want to tell you… I remarried four years ago and Janet my wife has a daughter Tabatha she's a year older then you." Just then Sara comes back with their pizzas and before Joe can get a reaction from Pepper of what he just told her he sees another reaction from her as she takes a bite of the slice of cheese pizza and smiles.
