And You Think You're Having a Bad Day

Harold, his face battered from the beating by Celia's brothers, who caught him cheating with their other sister, June, limped past the beggar with the thicket of red hair. The generous vagrant smiled and offered Harold a shot of bourbon. Harold couldn't decide which burned more in his gut, the liquid or the beggar's knife.

Prompt words: thicket, beggar, limp, generous, shot
