I hadn’t written in a while so I asked for a muse and got ‘glass’. Glass it is.
He lifted the glass to his lips and took a drink. Soft ambience music and quiet voices of other customers around him threatened to mingle with his thoughts.
Alone in a foreign city, he was a traveller between worlds, a dreamer lost in his conquests.
“Your glass looks lonely.”
He looked up as a female voice said quietly. It was matter-of-fact yet bore a hint of conspiracy, almost a whisper in his ear.
He hadn’t noticed her before, but there she was, gazing at him with a smile, sitting a few stools away, her drink held between her fingers with casual poise.
“Well then, it would be a pleasure if your glass could keep it company.”
“Don’t mind if it does.”
She walked over, placing her glass carefully beside his.
“It seems to be almost empty.”
“Yeah, it’s been here for a while. Hadn’t done much except to give me a taste of the city thus far.”
“And do you like what you have tasted?”
She looked at him as she tilted the contents in her glass between the parting of her lips.
“But there is more to the city than what your glass has to offer.”
“I’m sure there is.”
“Maybe I can show you… around.”
“That would be most delightful. And I’m sure my glass no longer needs my company now that it has yours for that.”
She laughed a little, a wink of amusement in her eyes, then both of them stepped out of the bar into the night, while his glass and hers remained, out of sight.
