Part 67: Getting Rich

Music: Serenity

He was acting real strange after that call. He pulled an old note out from one of his drawers, opened it up and just stared at it. I heard him mutter something under his breath too... It sounded like "why now?".
Sounds like there's more to Ed and Frank's relationship than they're letting on.
I get the same feeling. That's why I thought I'd let you know.
You made the right call.
Oh, and another thing. You'll be pleased to hear that Mila's staying at my place now.
I see.
I was wondering if you could spare some time to go for a meal with us tomorrow night. It'll be the first Christmas Eve you'll have spent time with her. I think it'd be nice to get together this year.

Are we finally going to see Rachel in person? Of course not.

Anyway, I'll call again, Kyle. *hangs up*

11 o'clock. Guess Rock 'n' Soul's gonna be starting about now.

Music: Heating Up


I'd better switch on the radio and have a listen.

There's only one channel available here.

New Music: Belief (Listen to this)

"This is the latest track from everyone's favourite rocker, Tony Wolf! I'm sure you remember Wolf as the man who caused quite a stir with his debut album.This time, Wolf shocks us with a calm, melodious ballad for the Christmas season! Everyone listen up... Here's 'Belief'! And stay tuned for even more hits!"

So this is Tony's song...
Not a bad song.
(What did Tony tell me last night?)

If I can't get any interest from a record label, I'll just have to put it out on my own.
Problem is, then I gotta scrape together the cash!
It's times like this I wish I could just win the lottery or something!

Bad Tony! You know what'll happen if you gamble!

(I think I'll grab the chance and go and get a coffee or something at the café.)

Apparently Tony's song lasts for an hour.

Music: Heating Up
Music: Overstepped Memory
Anyway, let's finally go get our food po...

What now?

Music: Blue Lady
Darn! I thought I did quite well...
What's the problem? Are you having troubles again?
It seems I missed out on the prize.

Oh, right. Today's the lottery announcement.

So you entered the crossword prize draw, huh?
Of course!
Especially since there's $1000 to be won.
If I won, I could afford to buy a brand-new camera to use for filming.
I guess things didn't go my way this time though.
Bad luck.
I'll see you later, Mr Hyde.

Charles finishes talking and walks away.

All right, if the world's done conspiring against us, let's FINALLY go to the café and get our food porn.

Music: Glass in the Hand

Hey, Claire. What's today's coffee?
It's a mocha from Yemen.
It has a distinct bitterness with a strong flavour. I'm sure you'll like it, Mr Hyde.
I'll take one. Black.
You got it!

Our food porn...

Hey, Claire, today's the day the prize draw results come out, right?
We finally get to see who the winner is.
Right. The results are over there on the wall.

Okay, thanks.

Claire moves away and heads towards the kitchen.

Let's chat up Sidney before we take a look at the results.

Have you taken a look at the results, Mr Hyde?
They've been put up on the wall next to the entrance at the front of the café. You'd better take a look.

Music: A Drink in the Evening
Alright, alright, fine. We'll take a look.

Music: Hidden Proof

Note There's a note pinned to the wall.

Zoomed-in note

Okay, here's the winning number... Now, where did I put my entry slip?

We're rich! Suck on that, everyone else!

Music: A Drink in the Evening

Hey, Sidney.
So, how'd you do?

Music: Gusty Town

Show 1967 hotel photo
That's the photo of the hotel that I gave you, right? I don't mind if you keep it for a while longer.
Show funeral photo
That's Marie from room 206 in the photo, right?

Show entry slip

See for yourself.

I pass Sidney my entry slip.

Just a minute, this number...
Looks like your luck's in, Mr Hyde!
So I have got some luck left, after all.

Almost makes getting fired and having to do the test worth it.

Congratulations, Mr Hyde!
Here's your cheque.

I'm glad it was you that won.
Hope the extra cash comes in handy.

"Sorry about the wait."

Music: A Drink in the Evening

Make sure you take in the beautiful aroma while you're drinking it.
Yeah, I will.
Oh, Mr Hyde...
Can I ask you a favour?
This is a little out of the blue, but sure, go ahead.
Actually, there's something I've been meaning to talk to you about.
No problem, if you think I can help somehow.
Not here, though.
I'd rather my dad didn't hear.
Er... Okay.
So where can we talk then?
Come into the kitchen a little later and we can talk there.
But make sure he doesn't see you trying to get in.
Got it.

Claire moves away and heads towards the kitchen.

No food porn for us today, I guess
