In a paragraph describe the setting for a fight, either verbal or physical.
I’ll be honest: this wasn’t looking good. There were plenty of things here that might have caught the attention of any number of the patrons, regular or otherwise: the smokey yellow, glass hanging lamps that seem to hover above the red leather booths in the back, near the swinging door with the dirty porthole lodged in it that leads to the kitchen; the long rows and tall stacks of various liqueur bottles behind the psuedo-mahogany bar counter, each a different hue, sparkling, regardless of the dim light; and the wall filled so thoroughly with old band and concert posters that the original color of the paint or pattern of the wallpaper has been all but forgotten, an eclectic collection of photographs of wild hair and powerful stances. But none of those things are really catching my interest at the moment. Actually, what first caught my interest was this red-haired hottie sitting just down the bar a way. And that particular brand of attention quickly got me the attention of her apparent boyfriend. So what is catching my immediate interest is the clenched fist of that man being cocked back, his arm twisted, his back arched, ready to flatten my face. So, no, this wasn’t looking very good at all.
