A Letter (from) Home

A timid knock on the door rouses Mendez from his slumber. Slipping from the King sized bed and flinging open the door, he stands unembarrased by his nakedness or the two women fast asleep on the bed behind him.
The boy messenger passes over a sealed envelope which Mendez tears open immediately.
After a few seconds, Mendez orders the boy to fetch his horse and slams the door.
