Joshua half-smiled to himself as he listened to Ral and his female friend go through motions they'd likely made for a long time. At times he regretted his lack of companionship...being who he was and what he had done meant a relationship would be built on half-truths and concealment...and who would want that? However, he pushed those thoughts aside and leaned forward, addressing the red-headed woman. "I don't know...looks like a bit too much armor to me."

He smiled, then added, "I never cheat to win by the way...that just takes the fun out of it." He flipped the coin, calling "call it!"
