Alex Forrest sat in the bar and stewed, getting more and more angry. How could that damn Dan Gallagher do that to her? He was nothing more than a damn dirty rat, that’s what he was. Well, she knew all about him, and his ever so lovely home life, with his nice wife, and beautiful daughter and pet.
She turned on the bar stool to look closely at her new acquaintance Anyanka. They’d been drinking together now for several hours, and talking about men. She liked Anyanka – she had almost the same low opinion of men as Alex did, and the funniest set of suggestions for what should happen to them. And the straight face she kept as she told those jokes…
Anyanka peered up blearily from where her head was resting on top of her folded arms. They’d been perched at this particular bar for 3 hours now, and it was starting to hit the young woman now. “Alex?” came the drunken sounding voice. “Don’t you… Don’t you just wish sometime… that….that… What was I talking about, again?”
Alex smiled that small, tight nasty grin that she kept for occasions such as these. “That bastard Dan. And his beautiful family.”
“Ohhhh, yeah…” Anyanka said, somehow managing to pick up her drink in one free hand and try to bring it to her lips. “The nice wife and the nice kid and the nice pet. What is it?”
Alex snorted derisively. “Some cute bunny rabbit.”
“Bunny? Ahhhhhhh!” Anyanka squealed in panic and almost fell off the bar stool trying to get away from Alex. She managed to pull herself back up somehow, and leant forward to address Alex closely. “Bunnies are evil.”
She swayed, and almost fell off the stool again. “You gotta… you gotta kill the evil bunnies. With their fluffy tails and all…..” Her voice trailed off as she sank her head back down onto her hands, and closed her eyes.
Alex waited for a moment longer before prompting Anyanka with “And?”. Her only answer was a snore from the sleeping woman. “That’s it! The final straw! I will not be ignored!” Alex practically screamed at the comatose Anyanka, and stormed out of the bar.
She’d show them! She’d show Dan his mistake all right! Another small tight evil smile crossed her face as she started making plans….
