For the first time in eternity, Fate was failing.

Fate thought they had it in the public park, when they gave Susan's dog the idea to break free of it's leash and race across the field to Dwayne.

They next met in the bar, and Fate filled Dwayne's head with the number three. When he ordered his drink and watched the bartender place three ice cubes in it, he joked that it must be his lucky day.

How delightfully clever! I enjoyed this so much. I found myself eager to see how each setup would get demolished. Fun twist at the end. Nice work. Good luck with the judges!
