I’m not sure if showing them your enchantment license would be considered proof that you’re not helping your sister. But if it is, then you could show it to them and tell them that your sister wouldn’t let you help her because of how often you’ve been visiting the police station to take your test.

In fact, your sister lost a bet with you when she said that you couldn’t get a license. You’re still trying to decide on how she’s going to pay up! .....and you’re trying to catch her at a time when she’s sober enough that she’ll actually remember to pay up.

Keeping cool isn't what I'm worried about. Keeping the urge to light up a cigarette away is what's killing me now. Thankfully I can't since my lighter and that is back in my room.

Jay speaks up and interrupts the other two's laughter.
Jay: "Alright that's enough. I think she might be serious."

Hammer: "Ha, makes you say that?"

Jay: "You hear that noise?"

Hammer: "That rustling? I thought that was just the wind?"

Jay: "No, that's her digging in her pockets."

Hammer: "How about dusting off that pool table and playing some cut-throat? Drinking rules."

Marsh: "Pool table is still getting repaired."

Hammer: "Oh yeah. Can't believe that dude flipped that thing the other week."

Jay: "Someone flipped the pool table?"

Marsh: "Yeah. It's also why we're not doing anymore big pool tournaments either."

Jay: "What was the prize?"

Hammer: "Buy in was five hundred and the prize was two grand."

Jay: "I can't believe I missed it!"

Candy: "Hey Marsh, we could break out those playing cards you got."

Marsh: "I don't mind playing poker for fun, but I'm pretty sure Jay and Hammer are going to want to play that for cash."

Hammer: "If I'm playing, I'm playing to get more drinks. So let's make it a drinking game."

Scruf: "Now you'rr talking!"

Candy: "We could play old maid?"

Hammer starts laughing. "I'd love to see how you'd make that into a drinking game!"

Marsh: "Alright, I'm setting the full ground rules here. Just because we're playing a drinking game here doesn't mean the drinks are going to be free. They're going on your tabs and I'm expecting you'll be able to pay them off tonight. Jay, since you're driving tonight you don't get anything for losing. No drinks for you either Candy. Can't have my assistant getting wasted on the job."

Hammer: "What, nothing happens if they lose?"

Scruf: "Fine wif me! More hisky for us then."

Marsh: "I'll be tonight's dealer. We've got four players, so each person's getting a hand of thirteen cards with one unlucky person getting hit with a fourteen card hand. After drinking three shots, you're out of the game. We all set?"

Alright, if I remember the rules correctly, your supposed to make pairs of cards and place them down in the middle of the table, the opponent to your left is supposed to pick one of the cards in your hand, you’re supposed to pick a card from the hand of the opponent to your right, and you’re trying to not get stuck with the Black Cat.

The only piece of advice I can give you is this: To increase your odds of getting rid of the Black Cat, shuffle the cards you’ve got right now and put the Black Cat in the middle of your hand, since people are more likely to pick a card from the middle instead of the edges.

Candy: "Alright so do we all start throwing down our pairs?"

Marsh: "Yup, starting with Jay, and ending with Hammer."

Jay: "All of them?"

Marsh: "Yes, all of them."

Hammer: "All of them? What kind of bluff you trying pull."

Jay: "This kind."

He throws down six pairs onto the table.
The Two of Clubs and Hearts
The Five of Hearts and Diamonds
The Six of Clubs and Diamonds
The Seven of Spades and Diamonds
The Ten of Clubs and Spades
The Jack of Hearts and Diamonds

Hammer: "Did you even shuffle the deck Marsh! What are the odds of him even getting six pairs right off the bat like that!"

Scruf starts mocking Hammer.
Scruf: " Did you even shuffle the deck! What are the odds of him even getting four pairs right off the bat like that! I oughtta deck ya."

Marsh: "Alright, stick out your hand Hammer, Jay's taking one of your cards now."

Since Marsh is sitting in between Jay and Hammer, he just points to a card in Hammer's hand.
Jay: "I'll take that one."

Hammer: "This one? You suuure?"

Jay: "You know what, never mind. I I'll take that one over there instead."

He pulls out of his hand and slides it over to Jay.
After that it's Hammer's turn to take a card from my hand. He ends up taking my King of Diamonds.
Hammer: "Darn, nothing."

Then I take a card from Scruf, getting the King of Spades. How great.

After that Scruf takes a card from Jay.

Jay: "Hang on, I think we're getting turns mixed up here?"

Marsh: "Huh?"

Jay: "When I started, shouldn't I have taken a card from Scruffy instead of Hammer?"

>>897105

Nope.

The opponent to your left, which is Scruffy, is supposed to take a card from you and you’re supposed to take a card from the opponent to your right, which is Hammer.

Marsh: "Which means you always take a card from the person sitting to your right."

Jay: "Thanks, I was getting a little mixed up."

With the turn order clarified, we go through a couple more turns before it finally happens. Scruf grabs the black cat out of my hand.

He doesn't say anything. Instead he just let's his expression do all the talking.

Then after that, either Jay's trying to bluff us or he pulled the joker out of Scruf's hand.

Hammer: "Ha, pair of nines! Thanks."

Both Hammer and Jay are down to just two cards now. I'm sitting in dead last here with six cards, and Scruf's got five. I'd ask how can turn things around, but I don't think there's much I can do other than just hope for good luck. Since Hammer grabbed a matching pair from Jay, I think it's safe to say he isn't holding the joker now. I grab my card from Hammer and get a pair myself!

Hammer: "You're always talking about some weird brand no-one here's heard of that you drank when you got home. Plus, we've never really had drinks with you."

Marsh: "Hey, when you're the bar that stocks just about everything you can, it's hard not to try something new when you can. Plus, I like to go big or don't go at all. No point in wasting money on the cheap crap."

Scruf takes his card from Jay, and Jay takes my five of clubs. No new pairs, yet. It's getting down to the wire here now.

Scruf: "Not too picky with my drinks. Cheap whisky or some scotch, that'll do."

Before they go on about drinks more I take my card from Scruf.

Scruf: "Good life lesson. Don't mess with her drinks. She's got one hell offa sniffer."

Hammer: "What! You went out drinking with him!"

Marsh: "Kind of, not at a bar though. We met at that coffee and tea place in the mall once."

Hammer: "What happened?"

Marsh: "Some moron put black tea in my hot chocolate by mistake a few months ago."

Jay: "Eh, black tea is just boring hot chocolate. Was it any good?"

Scruf: "She sat and chewed him out in front of the manger for ten minutes! Made him make her another and give her a coupon for a free visit."

Jay: "Little over kill don't you think?"

Marsh: "The hot chocolate was twelve dollars, plus the five I had to pay to get in there. You bet I'm-"
Hammer: "Who in the right mind, pays twelve dollars for a hot chocolate!"

Marsh: "It was huge mug with marshmallows in it and everything!"

Scruf: "Alright I'm pulling my card now!"

Jay: "Yeah, let's get this round over with. Give me your card Candy."

Where did you get stung?

Check the area to see how bad the sting was. But if the sting was in an area that would look weird if you looked at it in public, wait until you get behind the bar to mix Jay’s mystery drink, so that the counter will block everyone’s view.

Sour gummy worms in melted ice cream it is. If Marsh has any gummy worms or ice cream here?
I head over to the bar find she has some snack stuff stocked under the bar. Mostly salty stuff like peanuts and sunflower seeds. She's got a few bags of gummy worm... or gummy snakes? I grab a bag of the sour ones and head to the little fridge next. She's got ice cream in here, but it's just little cups of it. That might actually work out with a little drinking glass! I dump out some strawberry ice cream into a glass and stir up with the little spoon a little to speed up the melting a bit. After that, I break up the gummy snakes and add them to the drink.

He chugs it down in one gulp.
Marsh: "Careful you don't choke on those things!"

Jay: "Strawberry milk and fruity gummies? You really do live up to your name."

Hammer ends up getting hammered, Scruffy somehow manages to never lose a round, and Jay ends up ordering some more strawberry gummy snake drinks. It's a great time and we all have a blast!
