Danny clutched the case and pushed into the shop. Mendoza was perched on a stool at the counter caressing a Stratocaster.

A Drabble for the Daily
Luc had one arm around the girl; his free hand clutched the machine pistol taken from the sentry. The magazine was full; the safety off.
“Give it up, Luc!” urged the girl, “We’ll never beat Doctor Regulus, not here, not now.”
“I’ll never quit, Missy, understand? If we don’t continue, if we don’t end this now, all the others will have died in vain.”

“Drop the detonator, Doctor! It’s over.”
“I’ll decide when it’s over, Luc.”
