Birthday Present

On his 18th birthday, a few of his friends took Gunn to Vegas. They snuck into a strip club, and sweet-talked a girl to give him a lap dance.

She was blonde and grinning and gave him the one lap dance his friends paid for, and then gave him another one 'cause it was his birthday.

She danced and laughed and talked to him about what she wanted to happen. She told him about school, about a guy she was seeing, about all she was hoping to do.

When she was done, she gave him her number and walked away.
