After being blessed by the aroma of the chili, I snap back to reality and my eyes once more continue wandering around the restaurant. The tile on the restaurant 's floor is some sort of beet red and is covered in wet footsteps. I spot a Milky Way wrapper on the floor by the ATM that is next to the entrance door.
