Swamped Chapter 36 Page 2

You opt to guess the symbol, since there seem to be more cards with the symbol. You put down one card as a bet, and tap the symbol.

Chips shakes his head, and you toss your card over.

And you’re getting frustrated. Not because of the game, but because you don’t know what Chips really wants.

So you slam your fist down on the table.

“What is it you really want?”

But the table’s a bit flimsy, and falls right over. Rather noisily.

“What’s that noise?” you hear someone ask, not far away.

Chips puts a finger to his mouth. You’re not sure you should cooperate with him, though. Not if he’s being cagey.

On the other hand, Razor’s been asking you a lot of uncomfortable questions ever since you arrived here. And Rider’s not around to stick up for you. It might be better to avoid getting in trouble.

Keep quiet. You-Know-Who will have your hide if you botch this up.

You’re mad that Chips is being cagey, but you’re not DUMB. If YOU’RE in trouble, making more noise will just make you more in trouble.

Is there a MORE private area to sneak off to?
