Weeks #24&25: The Mystery of Sapphire Lake

24. Scenario: Your friend asks you to put the lottery on for him/her, then wins a million. How much do you think you should get for your trip to the shop? Write about what happens.
25. Title: The Mystery of Sapphire Lake

“The place is called Sapphire Lake. Now don’t you forget — Sapphire Lake.”

“Riiiigggghhht. Sapphire Lake. Honestly, I don’t know why you do this. I don’t know how you can trust riches to chance.”

“Whatever, just send the ticket in, will you? It’s on your way to work anyway.”

“Fine, fine, I’ll go to Sapphire Lake.”

Sapphire Lake. What an odd name for a lottery house. Well, an odd name for an odd hobby. I can’t understand my friend’s addiction to this game. Usually, she sends the ticket in herself. But last week, my office got relocated to the lottery neighborhood, soo…

Phoey. Sapphire Lake.

“I sent the ticket in, just like you told me to.”

“Shhh, shhh! They’re announcing the winning numbers!”

“Now? Wow, so fast.”

“Well, yeah, you sent the ticket in this morning. And it’s evening already. So…”

“Yeah, still so fast.”

“Give me a five… give me a nine… I can’t take this! Ugh, last number! Three, please! Three!”

“You know the odds are of you winning that thing, right?”

“Shhhhh! This is it! This is it!”

“It’s about — “

“Three! Omigosh! I won the jackpot! I won the jackpot!”

“Huh?”

“I won!”

“Hey, I sent the ticket in. Shouldn’t  I get something?”

“Huh? Okay. Hmmm. How’s about 10%?”

“10%? 10%???”

“Fine, none then.”

“Okay, 10% is okay.”
