Time passed. They took shifts sleeping, and they both made sure that no harm came to the other while they were fast asleep. Not that it mattered, anyway. Nobody came at all after Lily had run out and for the most part, both of them were able to sleep peacefully. At 7 AM, both of them were awake, just in time for the crackle of the announcements to come on.
Lukas was dead.
He shot himself, apparently. The announcer attempted to make a pun, but she was cut off.
It was a surprise to both of them. While they had both known that Lukas wasn’t a fan of the game, him committing suicide seemed like an odd jump in his actions. Michael himself had noted that earlier he had seemed fine (barring him leaving his team), and unless it was in response to something else, he wouldn’t have killed himself because of the game, right?
Oh well, it didn’t matter that much. He had lost another potential ally, but it was one that likely wouldn’t have helped him anyway. His gun would have been useful, though.
After the announcements had concluded, Michael and Zoe both had something to eat, they then stood up, and left the casino.
