    vii. when the chips are down

    Now all eyes turned toward Buck. Dana looked to Buck, too. She had no clue what was going on, but it was obvious that whatever it was, Buck was in charge. Buck sat with his hand flat on the table and the small smile on his lips widened slightly. He sat grinning and silent. The others looked toward him expectantly. "Maybe we could initiate her," he finally said, very quietly. "That's impossible," Glenn snorted. "She's female." Garrett said. "She’s a camper, and a transient," Simon said. "We don’t know if she's eligible," Willie whispered, shaking his head. Buck picked up a stack of blue poker chips and moved them toward the center of the table. Everyone stared. He set another pile out. "Fifty says she's eligible. Double or nothing." No one moved. "Don’t matter," Glenn said. "Even if she is she ain't." He turned and glared openly at Dana.


    Cowbird somehow messed up and published the photo without the story. :-(
