Deep Water

A Short Story (Excerpt)

Yes, he concurred as he gazed at her receding image, we always try to play our best with the hand we’re dealt. And I will definitely write when I can, love. Absolutely.  He tipped the tumbler and stared into it. The cubes clinking against the side of the heavy glass confirmed the low bourbon levels—an untenable situation in his current state of mind and level of sobriety. An old fan labored overhead, its paddles pushing the heat around the room, cooling nothing. Outdoor desert bars—isn’t that a great idea? Especially on an Arizona summer afternoon. Geez.  The irony that he could leave at any time—but wouldn’t—was not lost on him.
