Delilah Dirk - Mexican Standoff - R.A. Wonsowski


Panel 1- Center, DELILAH DIRK and ZORRO, both holding rapiers and bullwhips, barely standing, surrounded by fallen Mexican soldiers. In the background, we see smoke billowing from the entrance of Los Cajones silver mine.  Freed prisoners are cheering in the distance. Our heroes are breathing heavy from their exertions.

BOTH: Hh...hh...hhh...

Panel 2- Head and shoulders of DELILAH & ZORRO as they exchange sidelong glances.

BOTH: Hh...hhh...

Panel 3- Close-up on their faces as they look longingly into each other's eyes. ZORRO is smiling mischievously.

DELILAH: Do you have any idea what I want to do right now?

ZORRO: I can only imagine...

Panel 4- In a lavish parlor, DELILAH is doing a victory dance as she moves her white queen to topple the black king. In her other hand she is sloshing tea out of her china cup as she kicks up her feet. Her chair is knocked over.  DON DIEGO DE LA VEGA looks on at all this, dressed in evening wear and wishing he was elsewhere, contemplating another glass of red wine as he looks upon the chessboard on the table.

DELILAH: Checkmate again! Checkmate again!

DON DIEGO: ...not what I had in mind at all...
