After yesterday's sombre tone, I'm at it with the drabble again folks...

The High Life of Richard Redstone 

Another bottle of Dom Perignon ’69 was brought to the table, and Richard Redstone indicated to the waiter to share it with his companions. “I could get used to this.” Richie thought, as he placed a large stack of chips on red.
“No more bets.” The croupier spun the wheel and dropped the ball. Every bounce seemed in time with the beat of Richie’s heart, he loved this thrill. “Red 16. Congratulations monsieur.” Richie grinned broadly as his winnings were pushed toward him and the two lovely ladies either side edged closer. This was definitely one of his better ideas.

I did actually write ear to ear originally but that took me over 100 words and I was trying to be a smart-arse :)

But he only had the "now"--he hadn't lived long enough for the "then" to kick in...
