Prince Nicolas Beaudont
“You’re bluffing.” Remarked Bernard taking his cigar to his mouth, the smoke wafting around his greying mustache, I smirked raising my eyebrow almost daring him to second guess me.
“Are you willing to take that chance?” I took a sip of my drink, the slight burn and heat of the drink was satisfying.
“Question is my prince are you?”
“You know Bernard I always take risks.” I said moving more gold into the middle of the pile. “Let me see your cards.”
Bernard looked at his cards slowly putting each on the table and never broke eye contact with me. “Three of a kind.”
“That’s good however not good enough.” Just as I picked up my folded cards the door slammed open and the Lord Knight came strolling in. “Can’t you see we’re in the middle of a game.”
