Katrina got into the shower with the grinning Gabriella and began to feel a hint of pleasure as her visions seemed to blur with each drop of water falling.

Just as suddenly she was outside. She understood it was later that day. Her mind processed the area - The Village. 1979, before all of the remodeling of the neighborhood. Trendy with the grim of old New York before it was scrubbed clean in the late 90s and early 2000s.

She was enjoying a drink at an outdoor cafe, a mom and pop - or pop and pop in this case, a place with wobbly tables and great coffee in a time before Starbucks. The menu was done on blackboard with white chalk and without a single hint of irony.

The sun was beginning to set and Kat could feel a hint of breeze on her bare arms, a strand or two of her dark hair falling in front of her eyes and touching down to her cheeks.

The street felt alive. People were talking, arguing, debating, celebrating. They were greeting each other as they met on the way home from work and a hundred set of plans were made and formalized for tonight, a hundred promises. An NYPD cruiser went by on her right and she heard several voices with just as many accents call out "Pig" after it passed. A couple of passers by on the sidewalk even flipped the bird to the cops who seemed to not give much of a fuck as they did a rolling stop in front of a stop sign and kept going west.

Katrina pondered for a moment as the police car went past. It would be interesting to explore the city, in this age anyhow. Although this was a representation of how Gabriella saw it, she figured it would be fairly accurate. Although this was a memory, she was supposed to go where she was supposed to go and any detour would probably not be permitted or would turn out to be the correct option in the first place. The temptation to test the theory was certainly there, but at the same time resisted.

"Amazing" she said to no one in particular. She picked up her coffee and took a sip.

The coffee tasted real.

It tasted good, a bit more bitterness to it than Starbucks but it also packed more flavor.

The world continued to move by Katrina as she sipped on her drink. Men and women walked past her, rarely with someone of the same gender. In an apartment across the street someone was playing the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack a bit too loud, the beats from the Bee Gees drifted out an open window a few seconds before Barry Gibb's voice joined the fray. Nobody on the street seemed to mind.

The song was still playing when Kat saw Gabriella approach. Tight blue jeans and plain t-shirt - the Shadow looked like she should be holding a sign supporting the Equal Rights Amendment.

She playfully tossed a wink at Kat when she saw Katrina sitting at her table and quickly grabbed her own coffee - made by one of the owners as soon as they saw her. Gabriella paid and then took a seat opposite Kat.

"I love this place." She sipped at her coffee and seemed to soak in the entire scene of the Village at Sundown into a single content sigh.

Katrina took a sip of her coffee. It's just a shame its not here any more. she thought to herself. She knew the area well. It mostly went under with the rise of starbucks in the 90's, that or it was replaced with a trendy wine bar.

"Yes, it does good coffee and is in a good place to watch people just go about there business. New Yorks Answer to the bar in Havana where Earnest Hemingway wrote." Katrina smiled.

"Wow you really are an artist." Gabriella took another drink from her coffee. "I just love that it's strong as hell, too many friends of mine are starting to switch to instant coffee and I need a sanctuary for the bean."

Katrina laughed. "Instant Coffee is a crime" she carefully took a sip and placed the cup back on the saucer. "Just saying"

"Agreed, now only if the State of New York shared our enlightened views." She sipped at her coffee again. After a moment she checked her watch, a slim old time piece with a strap of real leather. "We've got a few minutes."

Gabriella seemed to breathe in the atmosphere of the place. "I could think of a lot of enlightened views the State of New York could share with us."
