It was one of those situations I had heard about but never believed. Three friends were over at my house playing poker, and I was down about $300. It was a string of bad luck, really. My hands had been good all night, but someone else always had something a little better. Now, I am sitting here with a ace-high flush, the other three guys have gone in, but I do not have enough money to match them.
“I am short, guys. Can I put in my watch? Its worth $200.” “I don’t know,” said my friend Lenny. “I already have a watch?” “Well what can I do? I have to play this hand.” The guys all smirked, and Lenny said something I never though I would hear. “Bet your wife. If you lose, whoever wins gets to fuck your wife in front of the rest of us.”
The room suddenly was dead silent as the guys awaited my response. I was stunned, but was confident my hand would win. “Let me ask her,” I said. I called Danielle into the room and privately explained the situation to her. Her eyes widened in fear and anger. “We don’t have $300 to lose, you moron!” “I know, babe, that’s why I need to play this hand and win it back. And then some. If I win we get $1000 tonight!” I showed her my hand, and she was confident enough to agree to the wager. “It better not be Lenny, though. I hate that asshole,” she said as I went back to the table.
“OK guys,” said Lenny. “Just to confirm. If any of us win, we get to fuck Danielle in front of the other three. She will be our sex slave and do as ordered.” “It doesn’t matter, because my husband is going to win,” said Danielle confidently. “Well we’ll see about that. Lay them down, boys.”
John, across from me, laid down two pair, a pretty weak hand given all the money that was on the table. Eric, to my right, put down three kings, better than John but not what I had. I put down my flush, and John and Eric groaned, they would not be fucking my wife. I looked over with confidence at Lenny, but my heart stopped when I saw him smiling. He put down three eights and two sixes. A full house. Beat me by one hand.
Danielle screamed “Noooooo!” And Lenny screamed “Hell yes!” He collected his money and put it in his bag, and moved his chair into the corner. He pushed the table against the wall and told me, Eric and John to sit on the opposite side of the room. We all moved over next to Danielle, who was on the verge of tears but was trying to stay strong.
