Playing His Game…

The dice must be wicked, or maybe something was wrong with my betting skills. I wasn’t going to win this…

The other man I was playing against smirked at me from across the table. “Things don’t seem to be going well for you.”

I swallowed and stared at my cards. “It’s too soon to tell.”

He laughed. “Well, I do admire you for the intention to help your boyfriend. But to be perfectly honest, that man sucks. Maybe he doesn’t even qualify as a man.”

I hissed at him. “I know he owed you a lot, but I love him. Nothing is going to change that.”

His gaze darkened on me. He rolled the dice, but those eyes… I took a deep breath, resisting the urge to shiver.

He put down his card. “Your lack of taste is almost insulting.”

I pick up the dice, staring at the scoreboard. It would take a miracle to win against him in his game…

When I was about to roll the dice, he said, “If you want to admit defeat, you know I can accommodate that.”

“I also know you are a snake.”

Maybe my boyfriend wasn’t that rich and he had made plenty of bad decisions, but… At least he wasn’t some rich ass who thought he was invincible.
