CLICK, well, it was a five to one shot, I knew I was safe. CLICK, still favourable odds, no sweat. CLICK, starting to get a bit iffy now, I mean, from the beginning I was on even odds for getting it in the first three. CLICK, still two to one in my favour, I was quietly confident. CLICK, hah hah... I beat you you little metallic monster, so there’s a bullet in the last one, but I’m not going to play anymore so up yours. I win, I win, I’m just going to slam you into this drawer because I’m the winner and you are the loser, BANG, OH SHI-
