*Sue stands at the bar and holds a cordless phone up to her ear. In the background, someone sits at a table reading a book.*
Sue: You’ll really drive out here? Oh, Mom, you’re the greatest! You sure? Yeah, we’re staying safe.. I’m sorry.
*Sue smiles affectionately.*
Sue: You’re a lifesaver! I love youuuu~
*She hands the phone back to the bartender, and they share a smile.*
Sue: Thanks so much for helping us!
Bartender: Not a problem. You take care, missy.
*Sue turns back to the rest of the group.*
Sue: Hey guys! My mom’s on her way!
*She freezes, smiling blankly.*
*Mike limply holds up a wad of cash. He’s flushed, drooling, and his eyes slip shut as he smiles.*
Mike: An’ ah made twenny bucksh.
*Sue yells furiously at him.*
*Lucy folds her arms, looking unimpressed.*
Lucy: Drunk on liqueur chocolates? Who’da thought he’d be such a lightweight.
*Daisy shouts at her, her fur standing on end.*
Daisy: WHY DIDN’T YOU STOP HIM!!!
*Mike hugs Sue, smushing his face into the side of her head.*
Mike: Why dunnwe hire a limo??
*Sue tries to back away, looking horrified.*
Sue: What are you doing
*Sue smiles at the bartender, awkwardly waving as they leave the bar.*
Sue: Ummm, thanks again!
*Mike throws both his hands up in the air and waves eagerly.*
*The bartender smiles back, uneasy.*
*Alejandro sits at the bar, resting his head on his fists and smiling. To his right is a tall drink; to his left is the bowl Mike emptied out. Behind him is a dog in a white ringer t-shirt, grinning nefariously.*
*Alejandro’s smile twists into a sinister smirk.*
