Poor Loki! The whole cherry-pulling business has made him grumpy and discouraged. I don’t cheat, honestly! I…I just think the cherries like me.
I managed to find another pair of twin cherries so we can play again. Now, in my efforts to cheer him up, I wouldn’t go so far as to sabotage a cherry stem so that he could win. If he found out, he’d be very mad. But I did notice which cherry seemed to have the weaker stem, and I’m making sure to choose that one.
Loki! You did it! You won!
I think he suspects something…
Loki, look! Here’s your prize! It’s the biggest, blackest one I could find!
Anything to keep my sweetie happy.
