Yet again, Anita was there ‘til it was just her and the barkeep. Mary, if she recalled. Mary the Unmarried, who had inherited a nice fancy bar with a brick front and most of the vomit cleaned up before it even dried. Beautiful brown eyes that shined brighter than the countertop –

“Listen,” Mary said, frowning even more as she shrugged her hands wide. “No, really listen.”

Anita sat up straight and stared hard, squinting at the way Mary’s figure passed in and out of itself.
