Bad Day

“Another,” Edward said.
The bartender nodded and poured another.
“Bad day?” asked a deep smooth voice.
He turned. A slender, ashen-faced man with an odd smirk in a slim black suit sat down on the next barstool.
“Such a thing as a good one?” Edward slurred.
The man stared into Edward’s eyes, smirking. Unnerved, Edward stood up. He laid a pile of cash on the bar and walked to the door, forgetting about his drink.
Exiting the bar Edward found himself facing the strange man.
“I can show you a ‘good day’.” The man smiled revealing razor sharp black teeth.
"I have cultivated my hysteria with delight and terror."

oh dear
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.
