When her best friend cancels their girls' night out plans at the last minute, Sophie is left all dressed up alone and lost in the middle of a world overflowing with tropical dreams and exotic drinks. The heady lure of kitschy paradise slowly erodes her inhibitions, convincing her that the hunky bartender has been glancing her way all night. Will she build up the courage to make a move, or will she spend yet another night alone in a cold bed? You'll have to grab a drink and wait around until Last Call to see how her incredible night ends.
This short tale is a prequel to a larger work in progress tentatively titled "The Girl Alone."
