EM-Drabbles – Forty-One

No one knew where Mad Mungo Munroe had come from, but everyone knew where he was going – straight to hell in a coffin lined with playing cards and stinking of whiskey.

But not today. Today he was where he’d always be found – at a table in the Sideways Saloon playing poker and winning.

“You’re a cheat!”

The whole bar froze as the loser drew a gun, finger tightening.

Munroe stared him down

“Never cheated at cards in my life, fella.”

“You’re a dirty liar, I’ll…”

Munroe’s gun fired under the table and the man folded.

“I just cheat at life…”
