Looking for readers for this scifi short story -- about 2200 words.

Granny May Saves the Day

Granny May was a mean old biddy. She terrorized everybody -- especially old man Jenkins, who owned the strip club on Garden Street. She ran off three doormen and a gaggle of dancers before he finally got smart an’ bribed her. He paid her off with free tickets to the Monster Truck rally just so’s she would stay away from his place.

Pops was the mayor of Greenley Village, but that ain’t why they was all afraid of Granny May. She was just plain ornery and afraid of nothin’. The bouncer at old man Jenkins’ place tried to stare her down one time, and he ended up throwed out the window. She didn’t do it directly. She’s wadn’t even taller than me, and I was only ten at the time.

Thanks.
