Pequita stumbled into the cantina, covered in red clay dust and sweat.
She whispered to the barkeep, and he brought her a bottle of mescal. He went to the far end of the bar, watching her as he rubbed a glass absently. The patrons watched as she poured a shot. She left it on the bar and upended the bottle.
If they were coming for her, she was going to be ready.
This week’s flash comes in at 72 against the 100-word upper limit for the month of June. Today’s featured word is cantina.
If you have been reading around, which I wholeheartedly encourage, you will find some really terrific twists on the words from the bistro. If you have not already gotten hooked on the talented authors of Flash in the Pan, today would be a fabulous day to start.
Who is after her? Why did the bartender go to the end of the bar? Why did she leave the shot on the bar?
