Casino Debt

Part 3

Janice cried all the way home.  She couldn't imagine how she had gotten into this mess.  The rest of the day she just sat at her kitchen table and tried to think of a way out.  The more she sat, the more she became conviced that she had just hit one day of really bad luck.  After all, she had studied the game and it wasn't very complicated.  Surely her system would work over time and since she had already had a really bad day, then she must be due for a good day.  So, with her confidence restored, Tuesday morning Janice went back to the casino. 

Sure enough, her luck changed.  She played all day, and by the end of the day she had won $300.  Now she had $800 and she knew that she was safe from Mr. Vineti.  Her system was working perfectly and soon she would win all of her money back and her husband would never know.  Wednesday she had a luncheon with the officers' wives so she didn't get back to the boat until Thursday.

By 9:00 Thursday morning, Janice was back at the casino with a bucket full of tokens at her favorite slot machines.  For the next 3 hours she couldn't win anything and by noon she had lost $500.  She was just beginning to question her wonderful system, when her luck began to improve.  By the end of the day she had won $200 back.  She left the casino with her original $500.

That night Janice got out a pencil and paper and tried to analyze her system.  She hadn't lost any money yet this week, but overall she hadn't won any either.  She had to find a way to make this go faster.  As she looked over her system, she became more and more convinced that it had to work.  The problem was the machines she was playing were only $1 machines.  Obviously, if she played the more expensive $5 machines she would win five times faster.  Well, Friday she had to get her hair done for a formal lunch Sunday afternoon, so the casino would have to wait until Saturday.  But that was okay, with her new plan, one day would be plenty of time to win back at least a substantial part of her money. 

Saturday morning, Janice slept in.  After all she had plenty of time to play since she would win so much faster.  She didn't even get to the casino until 11:00.  Janice took her $500 to the cashier and bought 100 $5 tokens.  Then she went over to the $5 slots and began playing for all she was worth.  Unfortunately, lady luck was not with Janice that Saturday morning, and not being used to playing the $5 slots, she lost track of how many tokens she had played.  At 12:30 Janice looked down into her bucket of tokens and was horrified to see that she only had about $100 left.  Where had the rest gone?  It didn't seem like she had played that much, but there it was.  In a panic, Janice played the rest of the day, but all she could do was break even.  She left the casino Saturday night, in tears, with only $100.  When she got home, she called General Parker's wife.  She was in charge of the luncheon tomorrow and Janice had to get out of it so she could get back to the casino and at least win back enough money to pay Tony Vineti.  Emily Parker listened to Janice beg to get out of the luncheon.  Emily asked her why she couldn't attend, and of course Janice couldn't tell her the truth, so she just said that she had personal commitments.  "Janice," Emily told her, "we all have places we would like to be, but this Officer's Wives' Luncheon is a major charity fund raiser and we are all expected to attend."  Janice hung up the phone and just stared into space.  What was she going to do Monday morning?

Monday morning Janice woke up early.  She began to panic, but then calmed herself down.  ‘After all,’ she thought, ‘Mr. Vineti was really just trying to scare me so I would try harder to pay back his money.  I have $100.  I'll give him that and we'll work out something for the rest of the money.’  Janice also decided that she wouldn't wear anything remotely provocative so Tony wouldn't get any ideas.  Janice put on a simple white blouse and black slacks and drove to the waterfront.  She boarded the casino and walked straight down to the office area.  Once again, the cute little receptionist just looked at her and told her that Tony was expecting her.

Janice walked into the office and began to walk over to Mr. Vineti, but as soon as she walked through the door Tony yelled across the room, "I see you have my $500." 

Janice stopped walking.  She started to explain that she only had $100, but as soon as she began to talk, Tony put up a hand to stop her.  "Walk back to the tile square, Janice.  Now do you have my $500?" 

Janice started to cry, and sobbing told him that she just had $100 but she would give him that now and she would get the rest of the money somehow. 

"Janice, if you don't have the money why did you start to walk across the room.  You remember the conditions I gave you last week."

Janice continued sobbing, "I didn't think you were really serious about that.  You can't believe I would really... Oh god!" 

Tony just sat a moment watching the shocked officer's wife cry.  "Janice, I was quite serious about my conditions and I expect them to be followed.  You have three choices.  First, you can walk out that door and I will call the army immediately.  Second, you can walk over here and place $500 on my desk.  Finally, you can scoop that pretty left tit of yours out, and then walk over here and place it in my hand.  Your choice.  I'm going to count to 10 and if you haven't started moving I'm picking up the phone."

Janice just stood there stunned.  She couldn't do what he asked, but there was no way she could allow him to call the army.  After a moment, Janice looked up and realized that Tony was up to 8.  Well she had no choice, and after all, it was only her breast.  Quickly, before Tony could finish counting, she unbuttoned the top two buttons of her blouse, reached into her bra, and scooped out her left breast.  It was humiliating to be standing with her tit hanging out, but the alternative was worse.  Slowly Janice walked the 100 feet over to Tony's desk.  Tony held out his hand, palm up, and Janice leaned over until her naked breast was resting in Tony's palm.  Tony took his other hand and gently stroked the top of the pretty tit while he looked up at Janice.  "Beautiful" he told her as he petted her big boob.  Then as he took his top hand and pinched her nipple playfully, he told her that she had one of the nicest tits he'd ever seen.  Janice just stood there, leaning over and blushing.  She didn't know what to say.

Tony, while playing with her breast, asked her why it would be so terrible for her husband to find out what had happened.  Janice told him the truth.  Her husband, Colonel Phillip McGilney, worked on sensitive projects in Europe.  She didn't know exactly what they were but they required high level security clearance.  If the army found out that she had gambling debts, not only would they revoke his clearance, but they might even force him to retire since he would no longer be able to do his job.  Janice knew that even if he wasn't forced out, he would leave her over this and she would have no one to support her.  She asked Tony, "What's a woman my age to do without a man's support?"

Tony couldn't help laughing, this was just getting too good.  He told Janice that he understood her situation.  "So let's make sure neither the army nor your husband ever find out."  He continued speaking as he casually bounced her tit up and down in his palm, feeling its weight.  "Here's how this will work.  Each Monday you will report to my office.  If you have enough money to pay everything you owe me, the game is over and you’re free to leave.  If you have at least $500 to pay me, then the game stays where it was the previous week and you don't have to pay any additional penalty.  However, if you don't have at least $500, you will have to put up additional collateral."  Janice was confused, if she had no money at the end of a week, how was she to get an additional $500?  Mr. Vineti explained it to her.  Each week regardless of her performance she would be issued an additional $500 on credit.  This $500 would be given to her in either chips or tokens, her choice. 

"So, if I don't play, then each week I could just hand you back the $500 and not have to pay any more penalties, correct?" Janice asked. 

"No," she was told.  "The chips or tokens issued to you are marked with a red line.  These cannot be redeemed for cash, you must play them.  Then whatever money you win you may use to pay your debt.  Currently you owe me $1000.  I will now issue you an additional $500 so next Monday you will owe me $1500."

"Mr. Vineti, I can't win $1500 in one week", Janice pleaded.  Tony told her that he understood that. "As I said, if you can at least pay back $500, you will not incur any additional penalties.  Each week that you do pay a penalty, I will explain to you what the next penalty will be."  Tony let go of her tit and stood up.  "This week, Mrs. McGilney you paid the penalty of your left tit.  So obviously the right one will be the next penalty.  Next Monday, unless you have $1500 to pay me you will scoop that pretty left tit out again and bring it to me.  If, however, you do not have at least $500, you may either scoop out both boobs or simply remove everything you are wearing from the waist up. Either way you come over here and hand me both tits, since at that point they will both be collateral for your loan and will technically belong to me."  Tony sat back down and told Janice she was free to go.  "However, Mrs. McGilney, I look forward to seeing you next Monday, and by the way, you might want to put that tit away before you leave."  Janice tucked her boob back into her bra, buttoned her shirt, and walked, sobbing, back to her car.
