Jack sat the staring at his cards blankly.
"Damnit" he thought to himself silently,
"I'm sorry fabrizio" Jack said with regret written all over his face,
"You bet everything we had" Fabrizio said before starting to curse at Jack in French but Jack didn't care as he sat there staring blankly out the window thinking what could have been.
"Put it in the wardrobe" Lovejoy said pointing the bellboy toward the walk in wardrobe.
"Do you want them all out miss?" Asked Trudy Roses personal maid,
"Yes" Rose said picking a picture up with faces all over it, "We need a bit of colour in this room" she added placing the painting down on the couch,
"There's truth but no logic, there fascinating" Rose said looking for another painting,
"What's the artist's name?" Trudy asked taking the painting of rose and placing it neatly on the couch with the other one.
"Something Picasso" Rose said walking across the room,

"Hello sweat pea" Cal said entering Roses sitting room via the promenade. Rose turned around to him as she did her necklace up,
"Shall we?" Rose said ignoring his greeting and making her way out of the room.
Call stood in the same spot for a moment wondering the exact same thing as Rose, 'What was happening to them?
