    pfft 14 year olds can gamble......(Open give me your monies)

    Post by Navi on Wed Feb 03, 2016 1:28 am

    Don't go to that hotel they said. It's expensive they said. Don't order lots of room service they said. You'll be broke in no time they said. Of course Navi ignored what they said and had the time of her life for a week. All the pizza, ice cream, and seafood a girl could want, which in Navi's case was quite a bit. She lived the life of luxury, a princess living in a palace adorned with pretty things she didn't actually care about, worthy of her magnificence. Anyone who treated her like a child was fired via influence of her wealth. Up until the point what 'they' said came true and she was nothing but a little orphan begging on the street.

    "Fuck" Navi cursed out loud as she stormed though the busy streets fuming over the measly 20 monies left in her pocket. She needed a mission from one of her clients to earn back some money. Unfortunately none of them had anything worthy of her skill level and fee. She was too cautious to go looking for more clients. That would almost cause as much trouble as sticking an Akuma symbol on the back of her trench coat, which hilariously was required. A requirement Navi blatantly ignored, unless she felt like causing trouble. Then the solution hit her. She could win money from suckers gambling. It was fool proof.

    Turning invisible Navi snuck her way into a nearby casino and reappeared at the counter to exchange money and chips. The clearly Yin Celestial pulled out her 20 monies and placed them on the counter her head was only barely above. The man there looked at her none to pleased. "No minors allowed. Get out." To which Navi replied angrily "I'm not a minor I'm a dwarf now give me my chips you discriminator." "No you aren't" was his response. "Give me my damn chips or I'll taxidermy that stupid scowling face of yours and use it as a scowl crow on old peoples perfect grass yards to scare real children away." "Security we have a minor in here." Considering this not worth the trouble the little Celestial stomped out.

    Storming the streets again she happened to notice some peoples holding a privet texas hold em gambling table at a tavern like thing. She thought it odd taverns were still a thing especially in the cluster crap that was Xastristan. Walking in and joining the table Navi put down an ante of 1 money and to her delight nobody had any complaints. "You guys are awesome." She complimented upon receiving her cards. A king of hearts and a 10 of spades is what she got. Not a fantastic starting hand but not the worst either. She waited to see if the others would bet more on their hands or check and have the 3 cards laid on the table. She would definitely check if they were nice enough to her not to raise it any at least not until the first 3 cards were laid down.

    Pulling her cloak tighter around herself, Fira watched as the Yin girl entered a tavern by the side of the road. She had originally traveled to Xastristan for a mission, but going back to the base could wait. She was more concerned by girl before her. A Celestial living in Xastristan? Not exactly common, especially since her sister had become queen of Meirie and the anarchy which followed her parents' deaths had come to an end. And although anyone could have black hair and dark eyes, she was certain that she was capable of discerning one of her own people from a Westerner perfectly fine. Waiting for a moment after the Celestial entered the tavern, she slipped in after the girl and walked in, her sandals echoing on the hard wood floor. Pulling out a seat on a table near the Celestial's and sitting down, she raised two fingers and, when the waiter walked over, instructed, "One glass of water, please."

    Yuuki sighed, a little exasperated. Really? It seemed all of her teammates really liked to ditch her when they were in the middle of a freaking mission. This time, it happened to be with Firalyn, who was the princess of pretty much all of Meirie. She had been casually walking with the crystal make mage, when she had suddenly left her side. She glanced around, sharp gray eyes on the look out for the Celestial, before she spotted a head full of black hair and a familiar energy. There she was.

    Yuuki took a step forward just in time to see Fira disappear into some sort of tavern. Seriously? Firalyn was a bit (Correction: wayy too much) underage to be going into a place like that. Then again, since when did Dragon Storm ever listen to rules? Whatever. Yuuki just let out a sigh, and followed the black-haired girl inside. She headed towards Fira's table, moving with a purpose.

    Once reaching there, she pulled out a chair and sat down next to the younger girl. "Why'd you come in here? What's going on?" she asked. Her gaze was directed towards a girl even younger than Fira. What was up with kids and going to bars to gamble? She eyed the girl thoughtfully. There didn't seem to be anything too special about her, aside from the fact that she was holding a large katana...

    Fira started when Yuuki sat down on a chair next to hers. "Huh? Oh, sorry..." She noticed that Yuuki was now looking at the girl too. "Celestial," she whispered. "Not many of us live outside of Meirie. This one is probably a rebel or a criminal... Or her parents are. Either way, it's my duty to bring disloyal Celestials to justice in Meirie court." She stood up, pushed away her untouched glass, and walked over the gambling table. Slapping a coin from her mission earnings on the table, she said roughly, "Hit me up." The regulars at the table eyed her, taking in her appearance and determined countenance, before someone grunted, as if amused by the second girl, and handed her two cards. The black-haired girl nodded in thanks before pulling out a chair and sitting down. Glancing down at her cards, which were [insert two really good cards here], and pulled out her entire sack if earnings and placing it on the table. Ah, well... I always did have good luck. Yuuki shouldn't have left the money with me.

    ((I don't know how to do this type of gambling, so yeah...))

    One stared blankly at his clawed hand, the tips reflecting the bright light of the street lamp a few feet away from him. He was leaned up against the window of a closed restaurant, taking advantage of the secluded streets. It seemed nobody came out at this hour. They were all either asleep or drunk in a bar.. Heh.. He could have used a human body to get wasted at that moment. He wish he could forget about what he did.. Yuuki.. It was unforgivable.

    He clicked lowly and looked away, ashamed, only to catch sight of a bar across the street. It was open, the lights inside emitting a warm glow against the cold pavement outside. He walked over and stepped inside. It appeared they were gambling in one of the corners. Interested he stepped up behind Navi. Prize money... He pulled out a chair next to Navi and sat down. "Move over kid." That was when he noticed Yuuki. He dropped his head, avoiding eye contact.

    OOC:

    Seeing this is all in character, do you need an admin to monitor where money is being exchanged and stuff? Or are you all alright on your own?

    (In texas holdem each person gets 2 face down cards. You all bet then 3 cards are laid down on the table. Those three cards are considered to be your hand as well as everyone elses' hand. So if you had two hearts and those 3 cards just so happened to be hearts then you got a flush but so would anyone else who happens to have two hearts in their hand. Anyways another round of betting goes and then 1 more card is dropped. Another round of betting and then one last card is dropped making 5 cards on the table in total. Last round of betting and everyone who hasn't folded shows their 2 cards. Other than that normal poker rules. We'll say you Firalyn got a king and queen of spades for your two cards which would be considered a very great starting hand however it all depends on the cards dropped on the table.)

    Navi ignored those making their way into the tavern as they were of no concern of hers. She was inwardly quite happy as the guys around the table didn't raise it any. She couldn't reveal it outwardly as she had to maintain a straight poker face.  Last minuet however what seemed to be another young celestial joined the table and put in her ante. Navi gave a soft glare to the girl she felt personal challenged by. There was only room for one young celetial that looked way out of place.

    The three cards hit the table. The first a 3 of diamonds. Twasn't anything special. The seccond card Navi really liked though she was sure not to show it. The second card was a king of diamonds. She was super happy at that. She already had a pretty strong hand. The last card was an 8 of clovers. When her turn came around she plopped down 5 extra coins. 2 peeps folded right off the bat. Was going so well so far.

    Out of nowhere a weird robot thing plopped down next to her and did so in a very rude manner. Navi gave this...thing a very hard glare. But she calmed herself down. She was about to win a bunch of monies. Getting pissed off at some weird robot wasn't worth ruining the great mood she was gathering.
