It's 10 pm at the bar and the pool tournament has just begun, Sonny, the reigning pool champion sat there with his green suit and platforms.
 
 
Lee was hyping Aaron up. Aaron grabbed the pool stick with confidence. A guy with a beard waited his turn and Aaron knocked all the balls in the hole.
 
He eliminated the guy quickly.
 
Lee cheered on the sidelines like a cheerleader. Sonny leaped from his chair, grabbed his stick, put a loaded gun on the table in his opponent forfeited.
 
Sonny seized the gun in warned the pool players to also forfeit. They all forfeited the tournament except for Aaron.
 
Man, you must be crazy not to forfeit the tournament, chump!
 
I like your heart, young blood, but you still won't win that 25 grand, punk.
 
 
Mr. Sonny, I need that money more than you could ever imagine, says Aaron.
 
 
I dig it, young blood but you could never beat me.
 
 
Sonny grabbed his stick in a bank shot the cue ball into the other eight balls, knocking them all in except for one.

70's movie style

I used to watch old 70's films like Uptown Saturday Night and Let's Do It Again. One More Time Part 2 short story comes from those films.
