It was three in the morning and I was pretty damn drunk. I sat at a $3 blackjack table in Vegas playing two hands of $500 each. The first hand was a blackjack, the second an 11, with the dealer showing an 8. I doubled down and got a 10. Boom! I just turned doubled my money in one deal. Crazy.
Driving home, somewhere north-northwest of Las Vegas I’m thinking about how I will spend my winnings when a green creature with large almond eyes and no nose or ears, drives past me waving enthusiastically. I whimble because I’m too stunned to do anything else. Then I call Scully.
For 100 consecutive days I will write and post a short story (about 100 words) incorporating a randomly selected word from Afterliff: A new dictionary of things there should be words for.
