As Lex slowly sat down on the rickety stool next to her, a huff of desperate air escaped her parted lips and she slowly turned her head from him. “What’s yer poison, mate?” The Toydarian said as he levitated behind the bar, and scrubbed a glass with a light brown cloth. “Just some blue milkshake please…” Lex whispered to the tender, as he looked for his credits. The floating Toydarian chuckled and placed his free hand on the bar, and stared into Lex’s eyes. “Listen kid, I know you’re a youngin, but I can get yer a Gamorrean Hoch.” The tender chuckled to himself and continued. “Hey! I won’t tell if you don’t, it’ll burn the mouth off ya so take sips and knock it back lad.” The male then floated off to a slim but tall bottle he kept in the refrigerator and grabbed a wide but short glass, returning and he placed them both by Lex. The Togruta nodded in thanks and tossed a bag of credits onto the bar, to which the tender snatched without hesitation, then grinned as he disappeared.
“Careful kid, stuff’ll kill ya,” the woman ushered out her lips, not caring for a response. Lex slowly took the glass, and raised it to his lips and took a small drop. The misty liquid burst into his mouth and spread around his cheeks like wildfire, it scarred every nerve with sensation as Lex forcefully knocked his head back to try and swallow it and his gushing saliva. Panting in desperation, Lex coughed and licked his lips from the burning taste. He turned to the now laughing woman, with his eyes tearing up. “Here, let me.” Sach said, as she slowly pulled a white cloth from the only pocket on her restricting leather jacket, then patted Lex’s blue eye lids from tears. Lex, now with dry eyes smiled and nodded in thanks, to which she smiled only a little, then returned to deep thought.
“Say, you don’t mind if I light up here, right?” Lex said, as he pulled out a black leather pouch from his pocket. The pouch did not hold death-sticks, and Lex did not even smoke, it was a from a grounded but nerve-attacking plant that was lethal to humans. “Sure, light away,” The woman answered, as she waved her hand at him. With a quick few seconds, Lex made the stick rather quickly after practicing many hours before coming to the cantina. “I like mine without a filter, gives a better kick,” Lex confidently said, the conversation with Sach turned into his favour as she was interested somewhat in him. With a soft sigh in curiosity, Sach turned her head back to him and opened her palm. “Let me try, kid, I can handle a drawback,” the human chanced her safety by taking the death-stick from Lex’s hands. He lit up a lighter and helped her light the stick, with a couple of big inhales, she coughed and grinned, looking at the ashes. “Nice taste, where did you…” She coughed again, this time more violently as green slime launched into her already open hand. With that, she rushed from her seat and into the bathroom. Sach dropped the stick onto the floor and a customer quickly stamped the ashes out. With a worried expression on his face, Lex slowly stood from his stool and approached the bathroom. After hearing a loud choking and thud, he looked around and noticed no one was paying attention, apart from an elderly human near the door.
“I better check her,” The male nodded in agreement and shooed me inside. With that, Lex slowly opened the door to the females side, only to see the two legs of the woman, laid wide and sticking out the cubicle, very still and awkwardly positioned. He slowly walked further inside, peeking inside to see her head placed against the cold floor, and a puddle of green slime near her mouth, with some gushed forward still. Sach was certainly dead. With that, he walked out the bathroom only to see everyone now stared at him. In a state of panic, Lex softly looked down and rubbed his neck in tension. “She’s…just cleaning herself up,” Then, like nothing happened, the crowds went back to talking, as the tender chuckled.
“You were a lucky boy today huh?” He huskily said, as he winked to signify Lex had wooed the woman, but instead the situation was the opposite. He smiled nervously, as if to give nothing away and slowly walked towards the door, exiting the cantina. With an odd confused expression coming from the Toydarian, Lex left for his swoop and returned to the office to report his work.
