    Kenneth grunted as two or three hits came through his defensive stance and jabbed him in the face with a glancing blow, the other two socked his chest. Kenneth then knew that this wasn't going to be just a pushover match-up. He swung into action and started things off, dashing into a frontal assault. Ken swung his arms, going for one right hook straight for his ribs, and the next attack going into his chin, but glancing off with the lard covering it.

    Kenneth then backed off, he readied his defensive stance in preparation for Tony's next move.

    Encouraged by the way the fight was going so far, Tony pressed his attack. However in the back of his mind a small doubt began wriggling through his confidence. He just brushed off a combo that would've flattened most men. he tried to shake the thought from his mind as he stepped forward to try to and work his body and lower his guard.

    Something went wrong, Kenneth zigged when he should have zagged and punches came pouring into his abs and lower chest. He struggled to gain his bearing back but the damage it did was something he could not ignore. Time was running out fast, if he didn't come up with some serious moves quick, he was going to lose the belt.

    He retaliated as fast as he could with a few good jabs straight upward toward Tony's head. With a right-hook, Kenneth hoped to at least knock him off balance for a split second, that would have been all he needed. The pain in this mid-section, though, was going to slow him down.

    Having slowed and winded Kenneth, Tony stepped up into his guard and tried to work him into a corner. He ground out a few quick jabs and tried to uppercut him into oblivion.

    Corwin was happy to accept the tip, and nodded at the old man as he handed it over. He was a little weirded out by the man's sudden disappearance after looking back up from the coin, but he pocketed it anyway. It didn't look like the other coins he's seen in his time in the city.

    The slot machine could wait until he could take his break at the end of the match, not that he was actually interested in the fight. Instead, Cowin leaned against the wall, vaguely keeping an eye on everything, and let his mind wander.

    Kenneth's chin felt a gigantic crunch. The uppercut knocked him for a wallop, his teeth clicked together, and he even tasted blood in his mouth. His ears were ringing and his head felt dreadfully wretched. He could barely find the strength to stand, let alone start another barrage of punches. All he could do is stumble backward, and hang on the corner.

    The referee came to him and examined his face. With a signal to the bell, two rings ended the match.

    "Ladies and Gentlemen! By way of disqualification, here's your new champion! Tony Virmire!" The referee grabbed onto his hand and raised it, victorious! The crowd gave a roar of applause.

    Kenneth was escorted from the ring, a bloody mess.

    "Alright, folks! That's all there is for the main event but there's still plenty of fun planned for you tonight! This night isn't going to stop until everyone's had their fill! Make your way to the lobby as our next show gets ready for your entertainment! Once again thank you for having fun with Wonder Jack."

    The old man rose from his seat, frowning. His patience was withering, and there was no sign of the key. What could be taking it so long, he wondered?

    Tony stood in a daze, his gloved fist held up by the ref. He looked around at the cheering crowd and realized it was over. He could tell that the throbbing in his face would definitely bruise but other than that he was fine. As he stepped over to his corner to hug his trainer and crew he felt an amazing sense of relief. I did it... he thought incredulously, I actually did it!

    The weight of the moment finally hit him and he wobbeled on his feet, light headed from euphoria. "Do you think he's alright?" he asked his trainer before he was whisked away to claim his belt.

    "Hey! Don't get caught up in the old champion!" Tony's trainer helped him across the arena floor, keeping the crowd away from him. They worked their way to the locker room along with the paramedic close at hand, who was examining Tony's facial lacerations. "That's right, Mr. Champion! No need to worry, because the only thing you need to worry about is getting out there and getting that belt! Haha! We're gonna get so drunk tonight and I'm gonna bag me an English chick!"

    "Alright, you look good enough for the camera, champ!" The medic said as he put the finishing touches on Tony's face.

    "Yeah! Let's get going! Get that belt! Get that belt! Get that belt! WHOO!" He chanted as they started down the hallway toward the ring where the ceremony was being held.

    Tony laughed with his trainer and followed him saying, "Well while your chasing some skirt, I'm gonna go bet the farm and meet some people." He followed him out to the ring still in a daze.

    If not for the high-percentage-label vodka, Catherine would have been shocked by the display of violence. However, she instead watches gleefully, occasionally clapping and squealing with joy.

    After the match, she heads off to the bar to order a few more drinks before plunging into the slot-machine section.

    With the fight over, Corwin got back on his feet and walked over to his supervisor. ”I'm taking my break now,” he said and took off his name tag. He walked over to the odd, oversized slot machine, and pulled out the similarly odd and oversized coin. Thus whole thing seemed really odd to him...but then, what did he have to lose? He doubted anyone would accept the coin as legal tender, and it's not like he paid any real money for it. He could win something here, or at least make a good show!

    Corwin carefully placed the coin in the slot and pulled the lever, having little idea what to expect...

    The lever did not stop, its lever turned like a crank, and then clicked as it reached the bottom.

    "Ladies and Gentlemen! Here's your winner, and new boxing champion! Tony Virmire!" A rather large crowd was there, along with the press who finally finished setting up their two cameras and writing in their notepads. They began to ask him questions at a frantic rate, but then were silenced as he was escorted to the stage.

    Click... 90 degrees...

    A lovely lady came out with the glinting, beautiful title belt, embellished in gold and black leather with the world map in the middle and "Heavyweight Champion" glistening on the outer circle. She smiled and handed it to the new champion, even giving him a kiss on the cheek. "Congratulations."

    Roy the trainer couldn't help but stare at her ass as she walked off. But that didn't matter, he showcased the belt with Tony with it. "Come on folks! Give him a round of applause!" This caused the crowd to clap again.

    Click... 180 degrees...

    Soon the press began to ask questions frantically again. Even when Roy tried to hush them up, they kept going. In fact, as anyone would surely listen in, they weren't even making sense. It was just mindless rabble and no one was even talking in any sort of language. They stood there, frozen, and kept babbling.


    Click... 270 degrees...

    Two big, red eyes glowed from the top of the slot machine, and they glared down at Corwin. There was a moment of silence as the lever continued to turn.

    "How is a raven like a writing desk..." A deep, vibrant voice belched from inside the machine, and the front loosened. Shaking, it began to move forward some. Then, out of nowhere, Smiley the clown's face was mere inches away from the side of Corwin's face. He said nothing, but his frown said much. On his other side, suddenly, Corwin's manager burst in and started shouting, hard. Even starting to push on Corwin around.

    His gaze turned off to the side as the heckle of an old man filled the room. In fact everything else was silent. All of the sounds, the movement, even dice in a game of craps was suspended in midair. And if Corwin looked back to his side, he would see Smiley was gone. Though the boss was still there, trying to yell, silently.

    "Boy..." The old man said, his cane planted firmly at his side. "Let your mind wonder."

    Click... 360 degrees...

    The door opened.

    Anrielle had watched the fight quietly, mentally cursing her luck, as she'd been hoping to place a bet on the fight, but had been rather taken by surprise, not having expected it to start anywhere near as soon as it had.

    Now, however, her calm, collected, shell was starting to slip; she had little idea what was going on with the odd slot machine - which, more than once, had drawn her attention, even during the match, as it was rather hard to ignore, and she'd had nothing riding on how the fight went - but she was fairly sure that whatever it was was rather unusual, and quite possibly not in a good way, making her reach once more for the hidden pocket sewn into her dress, making sure she still had enough food to lay low for a day, and a knife... Oddly, though, at the same time that she was more cautious than she'd been all night, she was also paying less attention. She wasn't in a position to see inside the door, but something was... Compelling her, almost... to watch it for some reason, perhaps to see what, if anything came out (though the rational part of her mind, of course, pointed out that, as the door had been carried in and was sitting in the middle of the floor, the worst that came out would almost certainly be a drunk who stumbled through from the other side), or maybe just because there was a feeling in the air that something was about to happen, and it needed to be witnessed.

    Tony stood there listening to the usual blather of the reporters, trusting Roy to answer the questions. He smiled for the cameras and noticed, that they weren't just talking over each other. There faces were extremely focused, but they were just making noises at him. "You know what they're saying?" he asked Roy. Roy turned to look at him and made the same nonsensical noises. Then they just......stopped. The earnest looks frozen on their faces. Tony took a few involuntary steps back and looked around the casino. Then he saw the door. Somehow the door was calling to him. In a silent voice at the edges of his mind, the door was tugging at him, drawing him in. He buckled his new belt around himself and answered the call. He left the ring and started going to the door.

    Chess Board One

    Indeed, the door called to them all, all who were chosen to cross the void. But as Tony neared the portal in the room, a gunshot rang out, a bullet whizzing past Tony's ear.

    "AAAAAARRRRRRRHHHHH!!!" A man shouted, almost sounding mentally handicapped. It was Kenneth, his teeth still bleeding streaks of red down his chins. "I go'a getchuuuuu!" Spitting everywhere, getting blood all over the carpet and his chest. He held a gun in his boxing glove, his finger poked out of it, and on the trigger. His face was still puffed out and bruised to hell, but he looked more angry than hurt. "I go'a getchuuuu!!!" He pointed the gun and fired once again. This time, his bullet struck the back of an older gentlemen, who didn't seem to mind that his shoulder had a huge chunk missing.

    There were many places to hide behind, but the doorway that opened in the slot machine was quite wide open, and heading for it was quite dangerous with a very mad gunman firing shots at random.

    --------

    "Lunch break OVER!!!!" The manager finally was making coherent sentences... or moreso than before. However, this time he picked up dice from the craps table and begin throwing them at Corwin, with great accuracy, and very high speeds. "Back to WORK!!!!" This time he picked up a pool stick and started swinging it at random.

    -------

    The security guard grabbed Jimmy by the collar of his shirt, and he lifted him with great ease off of the ground, bringing him face to face with the largest, most gruesome grin imaginable, and eyes that blazed yellow and red.

    "Is that your FRIEND?!?! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!" He shouted, and then spun around, throwing Jimmy straight for the boy he pointed out, (GM Roll) they collided quite hard and Tom flopped to the ground like a sack of potatoes.

    The clearly mad security guard drew his nightstick and slammed it straight into a table, bashing it with the drinks flying everywhere. "I'm sorry.... I'LL BE YOUR FRIEND!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!"

    The old man grinned.

    ..... Craappppp!


    Tommy has seen drunks before. He has seen drug-addicts, people who mixed drugs for pleasure, and even people who are nuts for no reason at all. This guy, who was a few moments ago a perfectly normal guard, now a creepy clown-like figure with a nightstick that he was sure was a little smaller last time he had seen it? Pfft, he was out of here!

    Slowly getting up after being thrown across the forsaken room by the insane security guard, he could only look at the prone form of Tim and softly say,"Sorry, Twitty, but you can deal with this guy, I'm out of this place!"As the sound of cracking glass and splintering wood comes from elsewhere, he attempts to head to the door that a few others where going too: a place with a champion boxer near it is safer than the alternitive.

    Corwin didn't understand anything that was going on anymore. Was he more tired than he thought? Did someone spike his drink? When was the last time he had a drink here? He turned to face his manager, trying to keep his focus in the slow motion chaos. Corwin stepped back as he started to yell, but still turned to look at the old man.

    ”What did you do?!” he hissed at the old man. Instinctively, Corwin's hand went into his pocket, and he started fishing out his old sling. But he knew violence might not help here, and he didn't have anything harder to throw than the dice.

    And then there was a lot more shouting. Corwin flinched away from his manager, and dived for cover as the dice pelted him. ”Calm down! I can't work if you attack me, sir!” he shouted. This certainly wasn't normal, even in the city! Corwin started sneaking away from his boss, hoping he'd be too busy swinging the pool cue around to notice.

    "JESUS CHRIST!" Tony shouted as the bullets flew past him. He ran for cover behind the closest table and flipped it over, staying on the side with the legs."Is this about the belt?!" he yelled hoping that Ken would be able to hear him. I must have knocked something loose in his head! Tony thought as he looked around to see if there was anyone in immediate danger.

    The pool cue connected with Corwin's collarbone, if it wasn't completely broken, it would have been a hairline fracture. Either way, great pain ensued. The manager grinned, wide-eyed and absolutely shaky.

    "TEHEHEHEHE! Time to punch out!" But as he raised the pool stick above his head for one final blow, he found that he could not move it. He turned his wide eyes over to the old man, who had taken hold of the other end. With extreme strength for an old man, he easily broke the stick, and used the splintered end as a shank. He jammed it into the huge artery in his underarm. In a huge guffaw, the boss fell, creating a gigantic bloody puddle.

    "My dear boy," The old man started. "I did nothing but facilitate... you demonstrated. It was glorious!" He raised his arms with a nice big grin on his face. "Now, my most faithful employee, if you feel so inclined," He moved his head to the side as a bullet lodged into the wall behind him. "I would have you join me through the door. Bring some friends." He winked through his sunglasses. "Good luck, Sonny boy!" He put his top hat on, and then waved as he twirled his cane, and pranced through the door, disappearing in the blink of an eye.

    Without the manager, there was still a very unhappy former-champion with a gun, and a security guard smashing things, and chasing a little boy with a night stick.

    Catherine is still at the boxing ring, looking perplexed and horrified. Currently, she is trying to jar the frozen people out of their bizarre status. She is talking to them, slapping them, and even splashing them with alcohol. They don't seem to be moving.

    Anrielle yelped in pain as a bullet grazed her cheek, before, whatever traces of collection she'd had left breaking down completely, running for the door that had been made as a slot machine. After all, that was where the rest of the sane and mobile people seemed to be gathering... And besides, there was, on the edges of her mind, something that would have made her want to go there anyway; a faint, but unmistakable, promise of safety if she just went through.

    The man (?) seems to be ever focused on him, and he lookes like nothing he has seen before! He attempts to run for dear life for the two big guys at the other end of the room, yeah, the ones who everybody was cheering for a few minutes ago. A few others where near that strange door, too, including a few he would swear that he saw when coming in. Bracing himself, he attempts to run near the crowd of stumbling idiots (stepping on Tim a bit more than needed: might as well hope that weirdo beats him up instead) and try to make a break for it to the struggle near the door.

    "NNNNEEEEHHH!! NEEEEHHHHH!!" The blood continued to dribble down his chin as he snarled his beaten and broken face. He pulled the trigger on the gun one more time, and it clicked. He looked at it with his snarling face, and then he threw it quite blindly at Tony. "I go'a getchuuuuuu!!!!"

    Kenneth started limping, and came at Tony. Even though he seemed physically feeble, his hand very easily punched straight through the table, however, in doing so, not only did he miss Tony, he broke every knuckle in his hand as a gigantic crunching sound rang out through the casino.

    "AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!" He shouted in anger and pain as he tried his hardest to pull his boxing glove (which was now torn to shreds) out of the table's hole. Never thinking to just take the boxing glove off.

    Level headed Tony Virmire paniced. He stared at the bloody lump of meat, bone, and tattered leather that had exploded next to his head, then took off running. Nowhere in the Casino was safe, only safer. He ran to the strange door hoping to find refuge. He threw the door wide and ran in.

    "AGH, damn it!" Corwin yelled as he placed a hand against his collar. He tried to concentrate through the pain - it was time to run. For a moment, he watched a stranger run through the door. Perhaps whatever was on the other side could be handled by a group, assuming everyone was sane. He run to the door as fast as he could with a broken (or fractured) collarbone, slowing down as he went through it so he could assess whatever situation was on the other side.

    "Come back, friend! Come back!" Johnny the security guard smashed the head of a stone statue with his club, shattering it to pieces. His eyes criss crossed as he looked around for Jimmy. He could not see Jimmy, but there was indeed a young lady inside the stadium entrance. She was slapping people, trying to get them out of their stupor.

    Johnny's eyes rolled in the back of his head, and he let out a maniacal giggle. His head bobbing up and down as he ran, he wielded his nightstick and began to run after the woman. With one hard swoop, he knocked one of the chairs flying at her. With a great fit of laughter, he jumped into the air and struck the ground, causing the entire ground to crack.

    "Come again, Madam!"

    White. That was it. Whiteness all around. There was a void of color, and a void of anything. Yet, still they stood on the same level. Any words spoken echoed, and any sign of the door they stepped through was lost. There was clearly no way back, and at first there seemed to be no way forward.

    At first; but who would rise from the ground, seemingly from nowhere, but Smiley the Clown. Standing in his dark purple pi coat and matching slacks, wearing his big red shoes. Only this time, the paint on his face was that of a frown. He frowned at them all, his eyes tracing around and gazing them all down.

    At length, his hand moved down into his pocket, and as it did, a table was produced in front of him. One that was just as white as the area around them, but it cast a shadow along the ground. From his pocket, he produced the most peculiar apple. It was unlike any other apple. Instead of any normal color, it was a very rich, navy blue. Other than its color, it was picture perfect, even with the right length of stem and a lush, green leaf sticking out of the top.

    Very gently, he placed the apple onto the table, standing it up properly, perfectly symmetrical. Then, in a sudden pull from his other pocket, he produced a very large steak knife. His eyes shot to each one of them and got wider for one instant, but then went back to his blank frown. He placed the knife onto the table beside the apple.

    "Welcome, one and all to this our biggest bag of laughs
    Welcome to the little ball from where you make a whole from half
    There's no way back as you can see from this our lovely world
    You had a friend, his name was Jack from there his plot unfurled

    You're only half, you need a whole, just wait you soon will see
    You'll all be baffled, ground and molded, til eternity
    My name is Smiley, pleased to meet you, I'll help you if I can
    I can be wily, monumental, I have no other plans."

    Then there came an awkward silence...

    Smiley honked the horn on his jacket and then began to sink back down into the floor. Before they could blink, he was gone. There stood a table, an apple, and a steak knife. Beyond that... white.

    "well that was weird." Tony said after Smileys speech. It was only then that he looked around and saw the others. 'All I can think of is to cut it in half and put it back together."
