English: Creative Writing 16/04/2014 (Fair Game)

Task: You’ve been playing cards with your friend at a Las Vegas casino for a couple of hours now and he’s up big. Suddenly, a pit boss grabs you and your friend and hauls you both off to a back room, where several rough-looking guys are waiting for you. “What’s going on?” you ask. “Your friend has been counting cards, and we don’t approve of that here.” Write this scene

I tried to explain to them that it was a fair game. One guy who was looked like a boss claimed, “Prove it. Otherwise, your prize will be ours.”  
I thought feverishly, How can I prove it? I answered, “Ok. Do you remember the guy who left nearly $200,000 here last week (in this casino)? It was my friend. He told me that he suspected that this casino does not play fairly. We bet with him. If I was able to win here, it would be his fault. My prize could be proof that the game here is fair. And I invited with me our friend who ought to be a referee. He was concentrating on his role, but you decided that he had been counting cards.
After thinking for a while, he said, “Ok. I like your idea. You know that statistically the possibilities of winning or losing are similar. If you won just $10, it would be prove this theory. Let’s play one more round.
We continued playing and I lost most of my prize. Very scientific bad guy. :)
