Kasumi Mayflower bounced on the balls of her feet, struggling to see over the heads of the people in line before her. She had gotten to GameStop early the night before, and still ended up being the twenty-second person in line. She gawked at the screen behind the counter as the game's preview played, and tapped the guy in front of her, politely asking that he move his big fat head so she could see.
Kasumi leaned out of line to count the people left in front of her. Just nine left. She stifled a yawn, telling herself that she wasn't tired. The next person happily left with their copy of Optimus Paradisi, and everyone in line shuffled forward.
Seven, six, five people left.
She dug through her pockets and found her receipt, straightening out the crinkles.
The guy with the big head stepped up to the counter and passed the clerk his receipt. She quickly rung him up, and then wished him 'happy gaming'. He stepped away from the counter, and Katzumi instantly took his place, handing over her receipt. She grinned, ear to ear, as soon as her hands touched the box.
"Thank you, happy gaming."
"Thank you!" Kasumi chirped, hugging the game to her chest and rushing out of the store. She was on her bike and home in less then ten minutes.
