Any2card Town, has a large population, and their playing styles are rough and ready. You will see our people in many more hands than the average Rock form the Valley of Patience.
Their chips will rise and fall like the Roman Empire. Sometimes they win and many times they lose. But who among the Hold'em community can say they never lose. Let me introduce you to some of the playing styles of the Any2card community. The Tilt Rock, This player tries to play like a member of the Valley of Patience VoP , but the moment he gets a bad beat, then the style changes, to the revenge of the Rock.
He will play any 2 just to punish the players for beating his big hand. After losing a couple more stacks he will try to get back to playing VoP hands, but once you cross that VoP line, it's to late, all the hands look good. The Action Junkie, Any2willdo, he just likes the sound of chips going into the pot.
Once he sees the flop he looks for reasons to stay with the hand. All small cards hit the flop, the raiser can't have any of that, so he raises the pre-flop raiser. When re-raised he calls to the river with his any2, and beats the over aggressive raisers and loses to the pocket Aces he was sure the raiser didn't have. His stacks raise and fall like the Warning this style can be dangerous to you stacks The Calling Station, Still waiting for a call to the winners circle.
The Seat Jumper, This player knows it's not the cards that win the hand but the seat that's hot that wins the most. This jumper will change seats until he finds the winning seat. When he finds the seat that's hot he takes no prisoners. When he can't find the right seat it's the dealers fault. The River Masters, A mild mannered player who will hit the river when ever your in the hand, you can't put him on a hand until the river. He never lead bets, only calls until the river, then he sinks your ship and you see the error of your ways.
The Viagra Man, He raises all the time. He is a destroyer of chips. You love him when you win a big one, but when your running bad he's got you by the The Out of Towner, This player never wins when playing in his home town game. He always wins, when out of town.
The Fur Trapers, They will always check the nuts, and raise when you get foolish and bet with your monster pair. I am the Mayor of Any2card Town, but I get no respect. Mayor, it surprises me that you have anytime to play Poker, given the huge population of Any2card Town. I play thousands of miles away, but I come across your citizens regularly. When one of them brought down my AcKc with his 8h5h, he announced that he had "had a feeling" before the flop. Do you think your friend BF Skinner has been helping some of your citizens get in touch with their feelings?
Re: DB, It's the one true feeling We have many out of town players as the post suggested. Becareful they always win. Getting in touch with your feelings is the religion of Any3card Town. When members of our community get into the feeling zone. It might be time to call it a night. Dominic go frisk em Did you forget to include 'The Salmon King'? He treats cards like spawning salmon. How do you explain the J?
It was suited, show me a real play like raising with Jack Benny Nothing like a calm discussion on racial matters to generate some thread length. There has been some quasi-gibberish posted by David in the "race card" thread on RGP about this year's Oly m event being won by a "white man". The upshot is that the Greek runner ran a personal best, but it was the slowest winning time in years.
The Greek's previous best intern'tl finish? Are Mediterranean people Caucasian, in the same sense as Scandinavians, or are they a distinct ethnic group? So Turks and Swedes are exactly alike and completely different from Nigerians and Jamaicans who are exactly alike. Whatever, Med'tnns are hellacious weightlifters. There was also a post in that thread that said something about Asians scoring the highest on SAT tests.
David replied, "including Jews"? Now as I live in Utah, I can tell you that succeeding generations of a religious group can develop distinct physical traits, BUT, my hazy recollection of "Mein Kampf" I smoked more dope than scott while in college, but was less heavily armed is that Hitler said that the "great lie" of Jews was their claim to be only a religious, not ethnic group. David also said in that thread that Pakistanis and Russians can be considered Asian. David probably meant certain parts of the former Soviet Union.
As for Pakistan and India, I believe their nations are part of a 'subcontinent'; the prefix "sub" more accurately referring to subsumed due to tectonics rather than subgroup of Asia.
SKP would likely be more qualified than I on this matter. Quiz 1: Kasparov's parents are Jewish and Armenian, he was born in Azerbaijan, and he chooses in the past, at least to play under the Russian flag. Quiz 2: Discuss the differences btwn the terms ethnicity, nationality, and culture.
Quiz 3: Identify the golf commentator who said, "I knew that Tiger would physically mature late because of his Asian blood. Answer 1 - The greatest chess player of all time. Answer 2 - None begins with "n" and all has no "y". Answer 3 - Lt. Army, Ret. Earl Woods. Because the doctor was a woman. Though the Greek guy got lucky in the m, I believe his top speed is in the top then in the world, or at least was that day. By the way, a Greek woman finished second to Marion Jones in the Olympic hundred, if I am not mistaken.
The original post said no white person was in the top ten. Asians in this country score higher than whites, I'm told, on the SAT. Of course this is a biased sample of Asians since the fact that they are here tends to indicate, for various reasons, that they are above average in intelligence. In spite of this bias, I am guessing that the average score of people of Jewish heritage is higher than Asians. I am also guessing that in spite of the fact that advanced degrees in technical fields including medicine and law , are granted to Asians in much greater proportion to their numbers, this too is topped by Jews.
I would expect someone could find the statistics to verify or falsify this. In spite of the fact that I used the term "Asian" above,I agree that "Oriental" is more accurate. Since there are countries in Asia populated by non-orientals, it is misleading to use the term "Asian" if the speaker does not want those other people included. Correct about the Greek woman. I've never thought about this before, but the same 'type' of muscle fast twitch is needed for success in sprinting and Oly weightlifting.
So why are people of African descent so successful at sprinting but not Oly wtlftng, and Mediterraneans vice-versa? Probably a combo of trunk-limb proportions and cultural biases. Of course, one of the greatest wtlfters of all time is a black American, John Davis undefeated from ''51 , so there you go. I am also guessing that in spite of the fact that advanced degrees in technical fields including medicine and law , are granted to Asians in much greater proportion to their numbers, this too is topped by Jews" Zieg Heil!
Mein fuhrer. Ve shall put an end to this bias in the next reich! They vill all learn of the supremity of the non-ethnic! Third-generation Asian-Americans do substantially worse than new Asian immigrants academically. Immigrants from the Caribbean score higher and earn more than native-born blacks, but do worse with each succeeding generation.
The highest scoring group in England is that country's small African community. In terms of average scores and technical degrees, I would guess that Indians top Jews and East Asians. Many have lamented that medicine, corporate law, investment banking, and management consulting are by far the dominant career choices of Ivy Leaguers. New immigrants and foreign students at top schools are much more likely to pursue science or engineering than US-born students are.
Boy all this immigration talk. All I can say is thank god for the Mafia or they wouldn't have let any of us Italians in except fo maybe Leonardo. Gee, some people have all the luck. A few things. The only thing "blacks" have in common is a history of oppression based on Europeans deciding that they should all be in the same group. Anthropologists have dropped race as a meaningful term and it cannot be determined at the genetic level. In fact, if you were to make "race" a category based on genetic similarity, what we think of as "black" Africa would be divided into about six different groups and the rest of the world would make up one group.
This is most likely because human beings originated in Africa and have been there a lot longer than the rest of the world which was populated by one group that made it out and then spread across the world. So yes, Eskimos, Englishmen and Australian Aboriginese for example are more closely related to one another than are, say, East and West Africans. There is far more variation in Africa than the rest of the world combined. While this doesn't mean that the average of any particular group will be more endowed physically or otherwise, it means the tails of the curves of population groups are fatter and the outliers produced will be more endowed than the outliers of non-African groups.
We could presume then, that given the right education facilities, Africa should produce a disproportionate number of geniuses. People of West African descent have the top times ever produced in the m. They have of the top times and all times below They have none of the top times for distance races. This genetic group is clearly more likely to produce good sprinters than other groups.
Olympic medals are not too indicative of how populations compare since the number of data are too few and there are so many externalities when you deal with one competition. Kendaris has never even broken The Bismarck? Conference that divided up Africa colonially and arbitrarily, thus throwing ancient enemies together, was a ghastly horror, and the tragic effects are very evident to this day.
One might also theorize about the different African genetic groups being intermingled due to slavery in America having some kind of 'hybrid vigor' effect.
The lack of educational opportunities in Africa and education's relative social unimportance in significant parts of American black communities, are atrocities, as is the govt's pandering and patronization of said communities, but that's another thread.
Keep in mind everyone that all this stuff is highly overmagnified because we are talking about the extreme tails of the bell curve. So for instance, if the average yard dash time of a black guy is What I just wrote is extremely important so read it again. Is that 1 black guy or lots of black guys? Do you think I seemed to have missed the importance of what you wrote?
You are getting too technical Scott. The key point here is that if one group does only slightly better on average than another group in some endeavor which means almost half the second group could beat the average guy from the first , that slight difference is vastly exaggerated when you look only at the world's best in the field.

Side note: All the royal families, which take care to inbreed, chronically suffer from diseases and demonstrate symptoms of mental incapacitation, of varying degree. The hemophilia of the last Russian Czarevich is such an example.

Nationality refers to the nation to which I pledge allegiance, either obligatoritly as a citizen or voluntarily as personal preference - and irrespective of ethnicity.

Culture get my gun! There's the culture of Armenians, living in France; culture of the Mississippi Delta inhabitants; culture of South Albanians Toskas ; culture of the ex-Ottoman Balkan peoples, in general; etc. A person living in Prague gets Western culture, Mittel Europa culture and possibly also Jewish culture.

Your discussion of nationality is a little off. What you have described is a civic form of nationalism where the nation is defined by the state and membership in the nation is based on alliegence to that state and the nation it represents.
This is not true for all nations. Many nations are ethnically based. For example, I can never become a German citizen, I cannot join the German nation. I have no German blood. Nationality in Germany is based on ethnicity, there are third generation Turks in Germany who grew up there, speak only German, go to German schools, only know German culture, who can never vote, be citizens, or accepted into the German nation.
On the other hand, Russian Germans who are from families that have not resided in Germany in centuries, know only Russian history, language and culture can become citizens of Germany because they are considered members of the German nation due to their ethnicity.
It is also more complicated than self-identification. While there may be some Gypsies who consider themself Turkish. There are very few Turks who would consider them to be so. Sadly, most of the world still holds some attachment to ethnic nationalisms. I have no disagreement with the contents of your post. The meaning of the word nation is more unclear than nationalism. Your examples of the status of German citizenship is very apt: the way they legally define German nationality is vastly different than what goes on in other European countries and, even, the U.
You're also correct is pointing out that one person's self-identification as far as nationality goes, differs from another's. Again, the Turkish-Gypsy example is apt.
Thanks for adding to the issue, which, you will admit, is a fluid and dynamic one. In your last phrase you express sadness that people across the world still hold on to the notion of ethnic nationality.
I would slightly amend that and claim that more and more people cling on to this notion, as we can readily witness in the media. Ethnic nationalism begets intolerance. And tolerance is not in vogue. There have been some discussions about several controversial subjects lately. I was wondering what people thought about same sex marriages being sanctioned by state governments. To quote the brochure: "The alpine gem of Slovenia, one of Europe's best-kept secrets, is a land of majestic snow-capped mountains, glacier- carved valleys, fairytale villages and Venetian ports along the blue Adriatic.

I abandoned my favorite well-sea- soned boots on my last adventure in South Africa. After several slips, our guide looked at the bottom of my boots and pointed out that the treads were completely worn off.
It was tough to leave the boots that had car- ried me to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, across England and on hikes in the Canadian Rockies. We had been through a lot together. So I am training. Pulling on my new boots, I join the Big Guy for a walk each morning. Added to that is a commitment to the'elliptical trainer and yoga.

Unfortunately, yes. Through scripture we are reminded of the need of commit- ment Sadly, through, we are, by nature, peo- ple who break commitments and break promises. This is tough reality to come to grasp. We make promises that we never keep to people and to God!
If we were able to rely on our ability, our perseverance, our own sheer willpower, we would not be in need of God. We need Him if we are ever going to keep commitments, because He is the only promise keeper.

Everyone seemed so sincere and enthusiastic at the opportunity to give; except for me that is. I was in a real battle. With my head hung down and my hands gripping the chair in front of me, I found myself wrestling with God. The minister had just finished giving us a wonderful exhortation about the privilege of partnering with God in the building of His Kingdom.
My problem began, however, when I went to my wallet to pull out the amount I felt like Rob God wanted me to fect sense being that I only had a few dollars with me. As I stared down into my open bill- fold, it became clear I had a problem. It was then that the next set of thoughts came bubbling up in my heart. Though I've misinterpreted God's thoughts on many occasions, deep in the pit of my belly I knew it was Him talking to me. But somehow, God didn't seem to agree.
After a few minutes of pushing the issue back and forth, I finally stepped out into the aisle and made my way to the. I'm sad to report that my own pride and concern about what people would think about me if they saw me dig- ging around in the offering basket, kept me from obeying God.

The truth is what He's really after is us. Our obedience is a lot more valuable than all our sacrifices.
I'm absolutely convinced 'that it's God's desire to share everything He has with us. The problem, however, seems to be that if we're more con- cerned about pleasing men than we are God, we can't really be trusted with all that He wants to give to us.
Though He loves us either way, obedience is far bet- ter than sacrifice. He's after our hearts! Robert L.

If this is not your thing, cool Daenerys looked away from the patient chart she was charting vitals in and saw Irri standing in front of her leaning over the nurses' station. He's pretty banged up. Thirteen is off the floor for a sedated MRI with a line placement, they will be going to the PACU afterward but they have my direct number to call report.
I should be back in thirty minutes. They went through the sliding double doors leaving the pediatric unit. While some of her friends found the thought of being a nurse emotionally draining, caring for people came natural to her.
She loved being a pediatric nurse and found it fulfilling to be there for her patients and their families when they were at their most vulnerable. Dany loved working at Braavos National Medical Center, and even though the memories of the nights spent on the ICU in Winterfell, still haunted her thoughts, it was those memories that drove her towards her career choice.
Irri badged them through the sliding doors into the quiet intensive care unit as her friend continued to quietly ramble about a recent date with a guy she met from Lys. As they walked further into the unit, most of the rooms they passed were either empty or had a patient resting in their bed behind a closed glass door. As they passed another room, the door this time was open and Dany saw a family huddled around a bed, embracing one another as a woman openly wept at the foot of it.
Dany quickly diverted her attention as Irri paused to quietly close the door, giving the family some privacy. Do you think he will call me? Irri rolled her eyes.
Dany laughed at the hollow threat of Missandei. They both knew Missy had finally convinced Grey to take a trip to Naath to meet her extended family. Dany instinctively reached into her pockets to check her phone. No text or phone call yet. Irri watched her with a look of amusement before they continued down the hallway.
When they arrived at the room, Irri went in first, checking to see if they had enough supplies. Did you want one? Dany gave her friend a quick wave and turned to leave the unit as she made her way down to the canteen. Dany was standing in front of the coffee machine waiting for it to finish dispensing her mocha espresso. She glanced at her work phone, she had enough time to catch up on her charting before starting her next round of medications and assessments. How long has it been? She wondered Years?
He gripped her hand and pulled away, giving her a curious look. I figured Margaery would've gotten ahold of you.
Dany nodded and silently allowed Robb to lead her to the wing of the hospital, she just left. A short elevator ride later, she found herself back on the ICU unit. Irri saw her enter the unit with Robb, her curious gaze followed them before quickly returning her attention back to the computer. Robb enters the room she had just been outside.
Oh , Shite. She glanced at the machines Jon was hooked up to, there were several large bandages across his chest with varying degrees of dried blood and drainage on them. She took two steps forward, assessing the ventilator that was helping him breathe. She surreptitiously looked at the monitor, his vitals were within normal range. Robb sighed, plunging his hands deep into his pockets.
He looked so much older than his twenty-three years. Sansa will be traveling from Kings Landing and should be here by the end of the week. Damn it, Jon, I told you this would happen. Dany gave a small smile as she scanned the monitors and did a quick visual head to toe assessment.
She walked around the bed, dropping down into a squat to look at the ventilator. She reached out and squeezed his hand, pausing briefly before she smiled. She noticed the rapid eye movements under his pale lids. The girls were just complaining about how you left Winterfell, never visiting and only Margaery gets to see you. Robb smiled. He shook his shaggy auburn head. We could catch up, yeah?
Are you hungry? He chuckled, raising his hands to surrender. He started packing his bag and slung it over his shoulder. As the door closed behind them, the sound of the machines and monitors blanketed the room in a subdued silence. Dany stood there for a few minutes watching Jon, lost in her thoughts. The habit of not getting attached and leaving behind friends was normal for her growing up.
But losing touch with Jon was the one thing she did regret when she moved to Braavos. He was no longer the fresh-faced eighteen-year-old that she last saw getting on a bus headed to boot camp.
The black curls that he uses to constantly brush out of his grey eyes were gone, his hair short and pulled back, similar to that of a northern soldier. She moved from the foot of his bed, taking note of his sharper features on his visibly thinner face, a shadow of beard hid the fading yellow bruises across his jawline. He looked battle-worn, he looked like solider. She continued to study him, taking in the man before her when the shrill alarms of the monitor broke her silent observation. She silenced the alarm, his heart rate increasing with a furrowing grimace on his brow.
She sighed, looking over her childhood friend that she shared so many memories with, her fingers gracefully tracing a jagged scar over his eye, pausing to lightly cup his cheek.
I just need you to wake up for me my Broody McBrood. She stepped away, dimming the lights and turn the tv to a music only relaxation station and left his bedside.
Dany jogged back to her unit, just in time to catch her phone ringing. She sat down at the nearest alcove and started writing down report on her patient coming out of the PACU.
When her patient arrive her interactions and response remained as professional and jovial as usual as though nothing was amiss. She went about the rest of her shift with none of her co-workers wiser of the emotional internal storm brewing all the while maintaining the epitome of professionalism that was known as Daenerys Targaryen.
Jon looked over at his half-brother Robb with a narrow gaze. Jon reflexively itched behind his ear. He reared his arm back to launch the ball at them when the bell rang. Theon continued to taunt him, walking backward as they entered the school. Jon quickly, shoved Theon making him stumble into a group of girls walking in front of them. That hurt! All three boys sullenly walked over to the principal. Mormont shook his head at them, disappointed. Now I want you all to go and apologize to those two young ladies you just trampled over.
The shorter one with her brown curls in a high ponytail, glared at them, rubbing her elbow roughly. Brackwell closed the door behind them. Daenerys Targaryen, she is coming to us from Braavos, class please make her feel welcome.
Daenerys stood quietly in front of the classroom, she nervously fidgeted with the hem of her scarlet sweater. She smiled briefly at everyone before looking back at Mrs. Jon watched as the girl continued to fidget with her hands. Blackwell placed her hand on her shoulders and guided Dany to the empty seat between Jon and Missandei.
Dany sat down at the desk and smiled at Missandei. She looked briefly at Jon, as he gave her a small wave to which her violet eyes narrowed, drawing her face into a scowl before she quickly turned away from him, throwing her silver blond braid over her shoulder.
Jon shook his head as Robb snickered behind him. See the end of the chapter for notes. Jon felt the very essence of his breath leave his body as he made an impact on the packed dirt below the treehouse.
He wheezed as he sat up, gasping for air. Jon looked up to see Theon doing a ridiculous victory dance around the deck of the treehouse. Jon quickly turned around and saw behind Robb, Daenerys, Missandei, and Margaery emerge from the tree line. Margaery rolled her eyes and walked forwarded. At every chance, Theon continued to goad the girls into arguments about the treehouse.
Jon gave a small smile at Daenerys, who crossed her arms, scowling before looking away. Jon huffed. It had been a year since Daenerys arrived in Winterfell, but Jon was no closer to being on any friendly terms with the girl that he was a year ago. Their interactions were thankfully limited outside the classroom except for the disastrous grade five spring science fair.
She had been furious with him and refused to speak to him at all after that. He had hoped a summer in Dragonstone would warm up her cold attitude but it was evident after the first few weeks of school Jon was still an enemy. Jon glanced over at Robb, his eyes wide. They had heard the infamous stories of Mossa and Mars, the fearless twins from Naath that pulled crazy stunts all around Winterfell, one of these said stunts being the reason for them being shipped off to military school in Astapor.
It just never occurred to Jon that his quiet classmate was related to the two. Theon frowned. Theon vehemently shook his head. He threw a cocky glared down at the group before turning to walk back through the makeshift door frame. Jon turned to the silent sentinel of the collected group. She had a curious gleam in her violet eyes as they roamed over the tree.
Jon looked over to Missy and Margaery who both had matching grins. Robb and Jon looked up to see Theon backing up, hitting the edge of the doorframe on his way out, his arms extended in front of him.
Daenerys stepped out of the tree house door, dusting off her hands and adjusting her ponytail with a smug smile on her face. They scrambled around them towards the back of the tree, joining Daenerys in the treehouse.
Theon hesitated briefly and shrugged his shoulders. Jon stood there briefly, looking at up at Daenerys. The threatening look now gone. She stared at him briefly before turning away, flipping her long silvery braid over her shoulder disappearing into the treehouse.
What the hell had she done to cause Theon of all people to react that way? He wondered as he pulled himself up the rungs, his head eventually poking through the bottom entrance of the treehouse. He watched as they all sat peacefully around the stacks of comic books and magazines that they hoarded over the summer. He caught himself under the scrutiny of Daenerys gaze before she looked back down at the Batman comic book in her lap.
Jon gave a nonchalant shrug as he pulled himself up to sit down inside the doorframe. He picked up a nearby Justice League comic and started reading. He sighed, It just another thing to add to the curious case of Daenerys Targaryen. Dany noticed as they entered the classroom that Mr. Cargyll stood in front of the class, rocking back and forth on his heels, almost bouncing with excitement. He was a new teacher to their school that had just graduated from Oldtown, or so Margaery had heard from her grandmother.
He was youngest out of all their other teachers and handsome too, with dark brown hair and green eyes that still held a youthful spark and eagerness to them. Cargyll smiled down at them as Dany, Missy and Margaery took their seats. I hope you all had a good winter holiday and are ready to get back to task. There were a few loud gasps among the cheers and clapping. Dany glanced over to see a relieved Jon leaning back into his seat with a grin.
I heard some of you were probably looking forward to blowing things up this year. Cargyll laughed, patting Jon on the shoulder as he walked by. We are doing a family tree project. The class collectively groaned this time, but Dany was excited. She loved hearing stories from her parents about the Targaryens and looking at the ancient books her father usually forbade her from touching.
Cargyll began handing out packets. Ramsey threw a glare at Mr. Dany ran down the empty school hallway, running pass the cafeteria slowing to a jog as she neared her classroom.
She had forgotten her family history packet in her desk and wanted to catch her father in a good mood when he got home from work to discuss it. She had her hand on the door handle and almost barged in when hushed voices on the other side of the door stopped her.
Jon , her eyes widened. Curiosity got the better of her as she inconspicuously tried to widen the crack of the door more, instead, she accidentally pushed the door with more force than she intended causing the door to bang open against the doorframe. He nodded and gestured towards her desk. Dany scurried over, dropping down behind her desk, to start digging through it. He waved her off and returned to grading the coursework on his desk. Dany shut the door behind her. The corridor was empty.
She started jogging towards the front of the school, checking the time on her watch when she collided into a warm body. Dany scrunched her face up looking down at her black leotards, white t-shirt, and a maroon hoodie. I thought you had practice after school? Cargyll about the family tree project. She turned back to see Jon standing there with his hands shoved into his pockets, his mouth twisted into a half frown.
Well, that explains a few things. She felt guilty, she never really gave Jon Snow a chance after their first meeting, he at least tried to be friendly but she quickly shut him down, especially after the last year's science fair. He wasn't too bad, he definitely didn't annoy her as Theon did. Robb was friendly but he usually only came around when Margaery was there.
So if you need help looking up stuff or organizing it…. Dany pushed through the double doors of the school, an icy blast of air catching her off guard. She quickly walked over, avoiding the icy patches on the sidewalk until she opened the car door, entering it.
Ned Stark looked away from the scene on in backyard, his hand resting on the window pane to see his brother, Benjen leaning against the doorframe. We agreed to tell him. When would it have been a good time to tell Jon? When he was five? He huffed. Benjen let out a long exhale. We agreed to and upheld her wishes, thinking we were making the right decision based on the circumstances. Ned picks up a rare family photo on his desk. A picture from a happier time of his parents and older brother Brandon.
A young girl with a wild black mane between he and Benjen, leaning her head against his shoulder taunting him with a mischievous smile. He has some involvement in this too. The laughter of the children drifted by the large bay windows. Ned looked over to see his children running out of the Godswood, towards the house. Jon beating Arya in a foot race, while they dodge snowballs being thrown at them by Robb, Bran, and Sansa. He gave a heavy sigh, drawing a circle in his palm. Everyone who was involved was already there.
He looked up to see Jon staring at the window, waving before catching a snowball in the face. It is inevitable, might as well get on with it , he thought. Benjen gave a surprised look before standing up, leaving the room to get Jon.
Dany walked down the hallway with Missy at her side. Dany was about to wave at them when the door opened. Stark stood within the doorway talking to their principal. Robb and Jon stood up immediately and followed their father down the hallway.
Dany was looking forward to her presentation, her father had allowed her to utilize some of the older family artifacts and pictures for her presentation, she wasn't scheduled to present until the end of the week. Missy glanced around, leaning in. Carygll before class about not presenting. He had a weird fascination with trapping animals and when given the chance he constantly bullied people.
Missy shrugged. Cargyll had to pull them apart. She saw the whole thing. Dany gave an apologetic smile as both girls continued out the school on their walk home. Over the weekend. Dany decided to take advantage of the unseasonably spring-like weather and take her dog for a walk in Karhold park. They had barely made it halfway down their favorite walking path when she came across a lone figure, skipping stones across the lake. Dany had tried to ask Robb on Friday, but he rebuffed her questioning.
