Happy final-Sunday-in-May, Sixers! I hope the holiday weekend has brought and continues to bring each of you an abundance of sunshine and love. Today’s six is from my second book, Flight Risk.

For now, the majority of customers chose to perch on stools closest to the watering hole. The five tables in the back of the room were left to parched stragglers yearning for table-side service they wouldn’t receive.
