28 Plays Later – Challenge #27
Pick a previous challenge and do it again.
I picked #5 – the provided first line challenge. Except it ended up not being the first line.
So, this is also the “adapt a previous work of your own” challenge, since this was originally a piece of flash-fiction.
UP IN SMOKE
SAUL (gesturing at the item):
Is that it?
What, this? It’s just a lipstick, see?
GERTL makes a show of opening the tube of lipstick and applying some to her lips, using the compact mirror for guidance.
Do you like the color?
It’s a little dark for a girl like you.
Right, because I’m still twelve to you.
No! Not twelve. Sixteen, maybe.
Got a thing for jailbait, Saul? I never would’ve thought…
Easy, sweet-knees, I’m just playing with ya. (beat) Shall we get to business?
SAUL pulls a cigar out of his pocket, and reaches for paraphernalia waiting on the table. He clips it, lights it, and takes a puff.
