Title: I Remember Tomorrow.

Synopsis: A suicidal gambler with a tragic history tries to gamble for good memories, but finds that no matter how bad things are, they can always get worse.

Good luck to everyone who entered. For my first time doing this one, this was really fun. =)

Heatmate! This sounds awesome. Hope you post to the forum when we get the all-clear. Smile


Looks like we'll have to swap. My money's (see what I did there?) on you to come out on top of me here. =)

EDIT: That said, I really lamented not having another 1,000 words. This was so much darker in the original version.
