"All in," Anna bets, her voice emotionless, after she looks at her cards—a pair of twos. Her flesh-rotted hands push her chips across the green table.

"$127,950 to call," the dealer says.

Jeremy, Chris and Ian fold. David checks his cards—two kings.

Anna smiles at him flirtatiously and winks. A brainless zombina, she often forgot she was no longer a sex kitten.

"Call," he says, not swayed by her tactics. Anna reveals her cards; David smiles as he reveals his kings.

The dealer lays down a two, king and three on the flop then a four on the turn.

"Let's make this interesting," Anna suggests. "If I win, you let me gnaw on your brain. If you win, you can take me back to your room."

He'd always wondered what sex with a zombie would be like and with only one possible out, it was as close to a sure thing as he could get.

"You're on," David agrees.

The dealer sets one card to the side the flips over the river card. A two.

"How did you do that?" David demands.

"Lady Luck," she answers with a smile then walks around the table to collect her winnings.

"Eh?! I lost?! No way, [Name]-chan totally cheated!" "Hah?! No, I didn't! You just suck at this!" You argued, grabbing a pillow from the bed and throwing it directly in his face. "Just because I'm better at playing video games, doesn't mean I'm cheating. Geez, Tooru, just stop being a piss-baby and just accept the fact that I'm better than you. The sooner you admit it, the better." Iwaizumi sighed as he tried to ignore the pointless bickering between the two of you. He wasn't even sure why you guys were here—he didn't remember asking one of you to come to his house and play his video games. Seriously, all he wanted to do today was to
