The ETOH-Free Chronicles #2: Gently, Bentley Takes a Spin on the Roulette Wheel

When the Wheel of Fortune becomes a memory challenge, how will Scott, our protagonist, fare as a croupier? Come dive into the spinning world of roulette through the lens of 'The "Gently, Bentley!" Way'.

In this amusing and enlightening episode, Scott finds himself as a croupier at a casino in Northampton. Armed with a forgetful memory but bolstered by the calming philosophy of 'The "Gently, Bentley!" Way,' Scott navigates the high-stakes environment. What happens when complex bets start piling up, and numbers start spinning in his head? Can the virtues of 'The "Gently, Bentley!" Way' guide him through? Let's find out!

Scott stepped into the softly lit casino, feeling the energy of the room meet him like a wave. He navigated his way to the roulette table, where he'd be croupier for the evening. The green felt of the table welcomed him like an old friend, and he took a deep breath to center himself.

"Right, Gently, Bentley," he whispered under his breath, calling upon the calming philosophy of 'The "Gently, Bentley!" Way.'

As the evening progressed, Scott managed to keep a lid on his forgetfulness. He executed spins with grace and calculated payouts with surprising accuracy. Each time he felt his memory waver, he chanted, "Gently, Bentley" internally, and it seemed to bring him back to his centre.

Then came the big bet. A high roller approached the table and laid down a complicated arrangement of chips. Scott's eyes widened. The stakes were high, and the bet was complex, with chips balancing implausibly on the table like a tower of colourful wafers.

Scott's memory went foggy. Numbers, odds, and colours started to blur into a swirl of uncertainty. He felt the room's gaze upon him, heavy with expectation.It was a Gently, Bentley moment if there ever was one.

Closing his eyes briefly, Scott softly chanted, "Gently, Bentley," the words vibrating at different frequencies, invoking a mental clarity he badly needed. When he opened his eyes, it was as if the fog had lifted. He performed the spin and then expertly calculated the payouts as the ball landed.

There was a moment of silence before the high roller broke into applause, impressed with Scott's impeccable calculations. "Well done, croupier! I've never seen such accuracy!"Scott grinned, acknowledging the compliment. But inside, he knew his real hero of the day: the time-tested wisdom of 'The "Gently, Bentley!" Way.'

As he left the casino that night, his pockets slightly heavier with tips, Scott couldn't help but marvel at how a simple philosophy had helped him navigate such a complex situation.

"Gently, Bentley," he chuckled to himself, "you've done it again."
