That Bikini Saved My Day by Axel Gutierrez
Axel is seventeen years old and from Honduras. His entry for the May Writing Challenge was one of those chosen to be a featured story.
The sun shines brightly. My brother and I go with my father to Castata Lodge. Once there, the plan is to have a good time, but I notice that my father isn’t quite well since he had an argument with his wife.
We order food and he asks for a beer. I don’t like him to drink, but I leave it so as not to be a spoil sport. I see that the prettiest girl in school is there and she’s wearing a spectacular swimsuit. So I go with her.
When I return my father’s very drunk, fighting with the waiter.
