FASHION PULIS: Gambler’s technique

These days, a Hardly Visible (HV) actor in showbiz projects is enjoying his time. HV used to be sought after during his prime. His versatility and acting process earned him accolades and respect from moviegoers. Unlike his contemporaries who are still actively playing challenging roles in the entertainment industry, HV prefers a different set of lights.

Habitués of a casino are aware of superstitious practices to favor the slot machines in their way. Others choose a certain location, play standing up, and believe in rubbing or tapping the machine to bring luck.

As a frequent patron, HV has been observed to tap the slot machine he’ll be playing. Tapping is okay, but HV was observed obsessively tapping the slot machine, and his hard gestures have allegedly damaged several machines. When HV realized the effects of his action, he would take a break from the casino and disappear. After a few weeks, HV comes back, returns to the slot machines, and behaves like nothing had previously happened. He would continue with his practice of tapping the machine rigidly. The staff can only express dismay at the unmindful behavior of HV.

Secret meetings

Regulars of a popular venue have observed that Network Celebrity (NC) has also been frequenting their hangout. NC is a well-known personality and easily catches attention. No wonder, eyes follow him and monitor his activities in the place.

Most patrons do not mind nor care for others, but they are keen on noticing NC. NC is a very familiar face and his presence easily stands out. However, the sightings were eye-catching because NC was not alone. Several times, NC was seen with Constant Companion (CC).

CC is a network talent, who started with just determination. Having good looks is also a plus for CC, but his beginnings were not easy. He had no contacts in the industry. He stayed on to love the business that gave his family quite an improvement in their lifestyle. As a young newbie, he made sure his family had the life his best efforts could give.

Seeing NC with CC raised several eyebrows. Questions of why they were frequently together in that place where one can book rooms were points of queries. On the professional side, a significant speculation on their meetings had something to do with CC’s career and whether NC was offering him mere advice or a management package. That idea could spark a lot of intrigues considering that CC is flourishing under his present team of handlers. Regardless of the reason, sources are interested in why the two are seen together in such a place.
