The Drink

Read the first part of the story here

The song ends, and the smiling man makes his way from the dance floor to the bar.

Although he has been dancing for most of the night, he is barely sweating, there is very little liquid in his body.  He is intentionally dehydrating himself, creating a thirst and a dry-madness which will allow him to attempt to drink the undrinkable… a Zombie.

He had first heard of the cocktail from a friend, who told him that if he drank it, he would experience a drunk like none he had before.  This friend told him that at first he would lose the use of his legs, then his arms, and after being taken bodily by this drink, it would at last creep into his mind and leave him appearing like a Zombie.

He ordered two.
