Confrontation — Page 6



*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.*
Daisy: MIKE!!

*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.*

*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.*
Mike: Byeeeeeee..
*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.*

Author commentary

Veronica: Athletic super-runner Maishul has the stamina of a little canary when it comes to the alcoholic candy, I suppose.

I wouldn’t be surprised if he ate the wrappers as well.

they’re standard thugs. seen a few of those types in real life, they usually have one track minds. been in a few fights with them, got a couple scars and a broken nose cause of it, they aren’t that bad though, it’s the leaders of groups like that who are the really scary to deal with.

He’s actually not that much of a lightweight, considering the body-mass of a middle-schooler and the sheer number that he drank.
