Dammit, what were they going on about now? Ancient Rome and its relation to Survival of the Fittest. Quince liked SotF. It had way more blood and tits than you normally got to see on TV, and those effects were good enough to be real. Of course it wasnt, no government would ever let something like that actually be broadcast if it was. But he had to admit, it was pretty cool.
Still, while he got how it linked with hockey, what did it have to do with History? Rome was so long ago, and in Italy. SotF was a here n now thing. Well, maybe not here. They never did say where it was filmed. Not that he cared, as long as they kept on delivering the flesh, inside and out, hed keep watching.
Hahahaha I bet it would be fun to be on Survival of the Fittest, however maybe Ill skip the school trip just in case. Now that seemed off. Fun to watch, yeah, but actually fun to take part in? Quincy thought about it for a second. Maybe it would be. Wasnt it just like boxing, but on a bigger scale? Go in, fight, and come out.
No, boxing was something else. Boxing had rules, had ways to make sure that it was safe as it could be. And boxing, for him at least, was never about violence. It was all about power, about showing others that he had power. Showing them his worth. More than that, boxing was never as personal as SotF would be, if it was real. Survival was all about settling scores in the most final way. And the pain on all those kids faces
No, not fun.
Rudy was asking him about the damn gun again, if he would look better with it if he had a long coat, or something. Yeah, real classy, Rudy. Like that guy in Once Upon a Time in the West. I can see you pulling that off. Gotta have the hat for it though. But you got the height, you got the build. I reckon youd look all cowboy.
Then Mikaela ran off to the bathroom, but not before she had time to leave her order with him. Hoping she was alright, Quince checked his wallet, and the prices. Fuck, the snacks were overpriced. Either he would do without the popcorn or
Rudy, I hate to ask. Can I borrow a couple a bucks? You know Im good for it. Just to keep her happy. Ill owe you, big time, man! He had done it before, and every time Rudy had been able to get a favour out of him. He just hoped this time it wouldnt be too distasteful.
