Phantom mostly ignored what Alvin was saying, he didn't get along with him to being with and distraction was the last thing he needed now. Though that was a pointless worry as he had no influence on the game whatsoever. He could only watch and hope that his luck would do it's usual magic and win the game for him.
Though Crown wasn't as half as confident or relax as he usually was, this situation was a lot different. He had no influence on the game, and the bet was much more valuable than money. It wouldn't be too much trouble if it was one of his own chips, but right now he was gambling with the life of someone else. Not only that, but that someone was very important to a close friend of Crown. With all those factors combined Phantom couldn't help but to be nervous. Sweat was slowly gathering on his forehead as the first card is revealed, Two of Clubs.
"Great, everything's going as it should. I'll make a small fortune on this fool. Wonder who the chick is though, might take her for myself if i get the chance." Danny thinks to himself in a manner very unlike his childish behavior and outer appearance. "Let's see here comes the next one. Bingo!"
Three of Hearts, three more cards left after this one. Crown so far has a small chance at a good shot as far as his hand goes. A 4 and 6 would save him in a situation like this, but the situation gets grim with the next card revealed. King of Clubs, the card that was going to ensure Danny's victory. Of course Phantom didn't know any of that and he was still putting his hope in his luck and the last two cards to be revealed.
The fourth card was Five of Spades, Danny put that one in to make it seem as if Crown had a slight chance, of course he would never be able to win the game with just that. Contrasting Phantom's steely concentration and tension Danny wasn't even paying attention to the table and was in fact playing around with a pair of dice. "What's the bastard up to?" It was obvious to even a blind guy that this was suspicious but that wasn't anything Crown could do, even if he knew that Danny was cheating as he wouldn't be able to prove it without his powers.
"Well then mister, the final card?" Danny finally stands up, lifting his legs from the table and sitting up right, now taking his two cards and looking at them for the first time. The expression on his face didn't change at all and still was an arrogant grin.
The fifth card turns out to be, just as Danny expected it, the Jack of Diamonds, a filler card with no impact to either of their hands.
"Let's see what'ya got mister." Danny puts his cards down onto the table, revealing them to Phantom.
