Flip's PL: 7,996
Things were going great on the Big Gamble. Business was booming, as Saiyans were coming up from the planet to have some fun, have some drinks, and possibly lose a LOT of money on poor choices. It was almost enough to make Flip laugh. This planet was really proving to be a real goldmine. Who said Saiyans didn't know how to have fun outside of punching things?
The casino boss was walking through the floor, looking over at the different tables as patrons gambled, won and lost. On a stage, the alien sister, Shymer and Gleem, were dancing and providing entertainment for the crowd. He could catch a glimpse of the ship's security officer, Riddley, at the bar, once again hitting on some female saiyan...and getting smacked for it. Flip wouldn't help but chuckle at that. Serves the guy right. He knew Keech was up in his office, checking the finances as usual. Wouldn't hurt him to make an appearance once in a while.
After checking with a few customers if they were having a good time, providing some free drinks on the house, he decided to take a stroll down to the hanger bay. Couldn't hurt to greet some patrons as they arrive on the ship.
Mollusc really did need to get a drink. All the training had been consuming his life. His goal to dethrone Kayen and create peace on Vegeta had made him hyperfocused. Now he could wind down a bit. Instead of focusing on the strength he could work on the tactics he'd need to take out the queen. So he hooked up with a few saiyans who were out "Drinking". He assumed that meant finding a nice lake to soak in but instead they ended up in a hanger. He'd stepped out feeling a strong power nearby. He had learned how to sense ki while training so he approached Flip offering his hand. "I am Mollusc nice to meet you. I am confused about what this place is. Perhaps you can explain that to me."

As Flip came down to the hanger, he had arrived just in time for a ship to dock, bringing out a couple of saiyans eager for some fun. But that wasn't what got Flip's attention. No, it was the Namekian amongst them. Flip prided himself on the fact that he could read people from a glance, and right now this Namekian looked incredibly powerful. One of the strongest he had ever seen. He also noticed that the Namekian seemed a little...lost. Flip could tell this was a man who had not been to a casino before. As the Namekian offered his hand, Flip took it and shook it. "Flip Fortuna, the owner of this fine establishment." Flip said in his usual southern drawl, "This place could be considered a hub of entertainment. Food, drink, gambling, live shows, anything you want, we will do our best to provide." He had the feeling Mollusc didn't know much about gambling and the like. Normally, such a person would be easy to take advantage of. However, Flip also sensed how strong the Namekian was. Angering someone this strong was not a good idea, especially on a ship in orbit. "Let me give you the tour, show you around."
"I see." He didn't get why humans had such odd names. Flip Fortuna? Maybe that was another type of finger. He heard flipping the bird and that was supposed to be the middle finger? Maybe he'd flip him off with the thumb? Mollusc shook his head. "I see. So you do stuff that is supposed to be fun for people to do." Mollusc really didn't do much for fun. Now that he thought about it all he did was train and meditate. He really needed to get some hobbies. Mollusc decided to follow the man since he offered to him a tour. "Might as well I got nothing better to do. Other than figuring how i'm going to defeat Kayen." Mollusc shrugged. Guess that was his hobby right now.

Flip rose an eyebrow as the Namekian spoke up. So, the kind of fellow who was all work and no play. What a pity? That was a wall Flip would have to break through in order to get some zeni out of him. But, that wasn't all there was to it. He also mentioned defeating Kayen, the saiyan queen. So, we had a would be contender for the throne. Flip couldn't help but smirk, "Well, I'm sure we can find something for you to unwind with."
He calmly led Mollusc over to the elevator, leaving the other saiyans behind. He knew just the place to take him. The elevator went up a couple of decks, before opening up to a large, expansive casino floor. Numerous gambling machines, card tables, a bar, and most importantly, what appeared to be a large fighting ring in the middle of the room.
"We have some fights going on here, for people to place bets on." He gave a small smirk, "Heck, if you want to sign up, you're willing to take part in some of them yourself. Could even make a profit off of it," Flip explained.
"Yes, I would like to unwind. I need to relax before I go into what could be my final fight." Mollusc nodded to Flip. They arrived at some device that he had seen before but had no idea what it could be. He'd go in and follow Flip. They were a new area though. He'd looked around seeing all the things the Gambling machines Card tables a bar and a large fighting ring. This place had a lot of things. He'd looked over as Flip explained that he could win some money fighting some of the people here. Mollusc rubbed his chin. Maybe he'd fight someone that could test him. It'd be important to keep himself in shape for the fight he'd have agiasnt Kayen soon enough "Sure sign me up. I'll fight I can use a workout." He'd cracked his neck looking towards the ring.

"Oh, I'm sure you do," Flip said with a smile as the Namekian agreed to take part in the fighting. Some fresh blood, and a local boy to boot. Should help draw in a crowd. And with the strength he no doubt had, Flip had a feeling Mollusc would become very popular, even encourage some of the other saiyans to partake as well. A shame he couldn't employ him full time. The organization could use a man like him. "I'll get you signed up my good sir. We've got a couple of fights lined up first, but afterwards, I'm sure I can squeeze you in." Already, he could see a large, bulky human, one of his security staff, going up against a Brenchian that had joined them on the way to Vegeta. "In the meantime, need anything to drink? First drink's on the house for our new prize fighter." He couldn't help but grin. He was liking this guy already.
Guess he was fighting. Mollusc sighed rubbing his head. He'd looked around with his abilities he could not sense anyone near his strength. No one was in his range guess the fighting would be pretty simple. The man explained that he could get him a drink as well for free. He assumed everything was free? He got a confused look, guess that was fine though. "I'll just take some water." He'd nodded to Flip. He didn't want to dull his senses for a fight. Plus he thought beer was not good for him. "So why do you own this place. What is the point?" Mollusc asked a confused look filling his face.

Water. Well, at least water, in and of itself, was free. Flip nodded, smiling and gestured to a passing waitress to bring Mollusc some water. As the young woman walked away, Flip turned his attention back to the Namekian. "Good sir, I am a businessman at heart. There's a whole, untapped market out in the galaxy, and I would be a fool to turn it down. As for why a casino? Well, I've always loved the flashy light. But more importantly, what's more alluring than the opportunity to make your fortune? Many people come here seeking their fortune. Some come out on top, some end up losing out, and others break even. But hey, if I can give them a good time while they're doing it, than I'm doing a good job."
Flip blinked and looked back to see a pair of female aliens approach them, one yellow, the other blue. The head dancers of the Big Gamble, Shymer and Gleem. "We're having some issues with the stage lighting on deck 8, and Riddley and Keech are nowhere to be found!" Flip nodded. "I'll make a call to the maintanence crew to fix that." He glanced back at Mollusc, "In the meantime, I'd like to introduce you to our new fighter, Mollusc. Mollusc, these lovely ladies are Shymer and Gleem, two of our best entertainers here on the Big Gamble."
Shymer gave an elaborate bow. "Charmed." Gleem, meanwhile, gave a demure little curtesy "A pleasure."
