THE GAMBLER Say what you will about Billy, but he was dramatically different from the other men that Suzie had dated. He was totally awesome, to say the least. As a matter of fact, she was confident that their love would stand the test of time. It would of made a world of difference if she had known he was a down and dirty gambler. On a daily basis, Billy would beg, borrow or steal to get his gambling money. Yes, he would look in every nook and cranny to find her checkbook and be gone. He was given ample opportunity to change, but as the saying goes, you can only beat your head against the wall for so long. One day she followed him to an undisclosed location. Come hell or high water she was going to get her money back. For what it’s worth, she would’ve fought tooth and nail for that man. As she fought back the tears she told herself now was not the time to cry over split milk. Eddie walked up to Suzie and once again said he was ready, willing and able to pay back the money he took on Saturday. Overcome with emotions, Suzie walked away and mumbled she wouldn’t take him back in any way, shape or form.
