The man whose eyes see more than just the outside of an individual only wants a tasty milkshake. Unfortunately for the baristas at Moonlit Coffee, they mistakenly believe that they don't possess the equipment needed to provide him with his craving. After waiting in line and seeing how lacking in service these two attractive coeds are, he decides to change his tactics from the previous uses of his unique talent.
In the past and more frequently, the man only uses those he needs as a distraction, looking into their thoughts and seeing the real purpose they can serve, changing them into someone who enjoys a little public attention and who quite possibly has a particular craving that surpasses his own on this night. This time, he's not looking for a distraction to take attention off him. This time the distraction will be for his own entertainment while he awaits his milkshake from the baristas.
