Thirst

“Let’s just say I’m a girl. You can imagine that can’t you?”
The gossamer threads left very little to his imagination but he nodded in reply taking the dancer in his arms.

“Mind if I lead? I’m a traditional guy. You can imagine that can’t you?”
Its narrow shoulders shook, the laughter was human enough.
“Buy me a drink? The bot isn’t much for conversation but he knows what I like.”

It dipped a pink tongue into the gin and asked, “Why this watering hole?”
“I took a wrong turn at the third moon. You?”
It swallowed,”Thirst.”

  1. It might be me, but I was confused as to who was saying what here. I might pop back after a second cup of coffee. It sounds like they’ve hit it off though.

    I’m thinking Star Wars. The bar room scenes were always my favorites. Fun stuff.
