The Queen of Hearts 1 - Daniel Homan

""I could use a man like you."

"If I fold, I die?"

"I believe so."

"Then I'm forced to play."

"That's the nature of a game with such stakes."

"No different then ruling a country," Renue says. "Like the lives you've so callously taken over the years."

Mesmer scoffs. "What would you know? What inkling would you have of the sacrifices one must make to rule? I could've had you killed weeks ago, when you first strode so arrogantly into my home. But I'm feeling charitable tonight. So if you fold, I'll cancel your debts. Just leave me the deed. Or, play, and we'll simply see what side lady luck chooses." "
