#139 One Crazy Night (200 words)

Inspired by: One More Night

Ein sat at the bar where Reggie spent so many nights in Mexico City. He ordered another Paloma. He had a Polaroid of the suitcase he needed to hunt down. 

“Excuse me. Have you seen this suitcase?” Ein asked a young couple who sat beside him in a slurred but otherwise perfect Spanish accent. 

The young Mexican couple stared hard at the suitcase and then conferred with each other. 

“Hmm, I have one just like that!” Valeria said. 

“Can I see it?!” Ein asked.

“Why don’t you join us? Maybe we can work something out.” 

“Okay.”

Ein sat down, Valeria sat beside him, and Carlos across from him. 

“What brings you to the bar alone?” Valeria asked. 

“Alone? I’m always alone. I can’t seem to keep anyone in my life. My ex-girlfriend is dating my old coworker! Now I’m down here while my business partner fucks all weekend.”

“Wow! That’s what we wanted to do but couldn’t find anyone to play with us. We wanted to try something new. Would you join us for some new experiences?” 

“Will you let me see your suitcase?!”

“Why not?! After we have our fun. This will be a night to remember.”

It was.
