Crack! The sound of the pool balls clacking together echo through the room.


The man who broke, observing the table before him.


His opponent; a little pool player; walks up to the table, he looks around and decides.


Taking aim, he looks like a pro. His big green eyes focused, his curly brown hair a sponge on his head.


He shoots… and clunk! He potted the the 10 ball.


Again, he takes aim. Clunk! He potted the 11 ball.


Clunk! 12 ball was potted.


Clunk! 13 ball was potted.


Clunk! 14 ball was potted.


Clunk! Oh no, he missed the 15 ball and accidentally made the 8 ball.


The man won.


It was a bittersweet win, however...
