Panel 1 Split Second and Ada are at a restaurant, sitting at a table. Both are decked out in costumes. Split Second's is clock themed, unsurprisingly. Blue and Gold motif, very silver age style superhero. There are cocktails on the table in front of them, mostly empty already. SPLIT SECOND:SO BETWEEN MY SHORT TERM CLAIRVOYANCE AND MY SUPERHUMAN REFLEXES, I WAS ABLE TO RESCUE THE ORPHANS FROM THE BURNING BUILDING. ADA:AND THAT'S WHEN YOU GOT THE MEDAL FROM THE MAYOR?

Panel 2 Near shot of Split Second, telling her well-rehearsed story and enjoying telling it to someone new, especially someone as interested as Ada. Over her shoulder a waiter walks in with meals on a tray. SPLIT SECOND:YEAH THE MEDALS I GOT ARE ACTUALLY HANGING FROM MY REAR VIEW MIRROR. OF COURSE, WITH ENOUGH FAME NONE OF THE - HOLD ON
