Friday Foto Fiction Photo Prompt

By Neel Anil Panicker

‘You don’t drink!’ It was less of a question, but more of an affront.

To the crowd who were hovering around her, by denying herself the pleasures of a drink or two, she stood out as an oddity.

Harish offered a life saver.

“Hey Sharmi, how about a Margarita. Or maybe, for starters a mocktail__ a Blood Orange Gin and Tonic? Trust me, the sweet and tarty flavour is going to enliven your mood.”

‘I don’t…but then…’

Sharmistha looked over at Harish, and nodded her approval.

A nice guy, she thought to herself. Nice but gullible, like all the others had been.

She looked around at the hall full of bankers. They were all enjoying themselves, their cheerful banter and infectious laughter resonating all around.

I better stick to my small town innocent persona if I intend to loot this crowd set of city slick bankers off all their money, she mused.
