  12. delfina subira says:

    Richard. Thanks! Because of you I dont have the hand of mikes daughter.
    servant. It wasnt because of me it was because you cheated.
    Richard. Whatever, that does not matter now. You saw me cheating and now Mike know it two but you steel have a chance to win one of my properties, if you want to win it you have to go right now and tell Mike that you lyed and that you said that because you didnt want her daughter to marry me.
    servant. Is a good idea but how could I believe you?
    Richard. You dont have another choice, but I will miss, if you dp what I asked you to do, I will give you one of my properties.
    Servant. Ok, but promisse you will be nice with Mikes daughter.
    Richard. Promisse.

    SERVANT:But it was for a good reason, I can not betray my chief
    RICHARD: But you could had have all the thigs you wanted. You are a stupid servant.

    CONVERSATION
    S:” I knew something was going on since I saw you taking a look on the wines.”
    R:” So why didn’t you tell Mike about it?”
    S:” Because it was none of my business.”
    R:” I wouldn’t have been through that uncomfortable situation.”
    S:” I don’t care about your situation and I decide what to do or not.”
    R:” This is a lack of respect to me…I’M LEAVING!

    RICHARD PRATT’S point of view
    I was always jealous about Richard’s amount of money. He has everything he wants while I barely have enough money to take care of myself. I thought that the bet would be a good oportunity to gain money because if the servant wouldn’t have revealed I cheated, in this moment I would have been having fun in one of the houses which could have been mine.
