FANTASY. WEIRD. CAUGHT IN THE HEAT.

Rice Wine. Part One.

 

- Can I have a drink before I see one of your ladies?

It's so hot!

- Well there's no water left, the Hill Tribes stole it all.

I can't even wash my suit, look it's got old food, and 

vomit all over it. I tried to wash it in rice wine, but it 

didn't work, my suit's ruined.

- Yes, and it's such a lovely grey colour too, but can

I have a drink of something, I'm so dry in this heat.

- All we have is rice wine.

- Well I'll have some of that then.

- You'll have to pay.

- How much a glass is it?

- Well each glass is twice as much as the previous

glass. It ends up being quite expensive.

- What? You don't want the customers getting drunk,

and misbehaving with the ladies?

- No, it's not that. No, we've had too many failures. 

Too many men drinking and not being able to perform

with the ladies since the Hill Tribes stole all the water,

and there's only being rice wine to drink. It's insulting 

to the ladies when the customers can't get satisfaction

from them.

- Alright. Alright. I'll just have one glass of rice wine

to quench my thirst. This heat is unbearable. I didn't

realise it would be this hot when I came here...

- Can I ask you a favour?

  The Brothel owner mumbled...

- What?

- It's very embarressing.

- What?

- Can you do me a favour?

- What kind of favour?

- Well, it's so embarressing.

- Is it a sexual favour?

- It's this heat. It's making me have strange desires.

I'm so hot.

- It is hot. It's unbearable. When can I have my rice

wine?

- You'll have to do me a favour first.

- I'll pay for it, I've got money.

- Good, because after the first glass it gets very 

expensive.

- Well can I have some then?

- First do me a favour.

- I came to see one of the ladies in the brothel,

not to see you.

- Just a little favour, and then you can pay pay for

some rice wine, and one of the ladies...

 

To be continued...

Thanks Olga, rice wine certainly makes for an interesting time when you're dehydrated and dying of thirst...
