ex: Vincent is given the number 73
Jem: Ten dollars
Tony: 20 dollars!
Derrek: 30 dollars!
Jem: shut-up, Derrek, 40 Dollars!
Tony: What’s with you? 50 Dollars!
Derrek: hey hey! There is plenty of me to go around. 60 Dollars
Jem: You are not doing this. 70 Dollars!
Since it is unlikely someone will say ‘73‘, this is where we could cut it. The person who bids the closest wins. In our example, that would be Jem.
Ace didn't even think of the possibility of him bidding on a bachelor. But one's short bio caught his eye. Donating to charity? That was good; Ace often did that too. Instruments? Light meal and a twilight stroll? Sold. As much as Ace loved a good party with thumping music, he equally enjoyed dialing it down and taking it easy.
Left hand going up, not too high or enthusiastically, Ace quietly but clearly bid "I'll do twenty."
On a whim he lifted his hand, flicking it gracefully in the air. "Thirty." No need for a song and dance, darling. There was food to criticize and wine to savor. The atmosphere had him in a good mood, but it would do him well to have the company to enjoy it.
Ace was stealthily checking his reflection in his silver Zippo lighter -- the frosty, white tips of his hair didn't seem to be darkening, and he had only gotten them a few days ago, per Becca, but -- oh, people were bidding. He stuck the lighter back in his pocket. Gods, this bachelor had a pout that could melt steel. He didn't think he needed a date, but Jocie would kick his ass if he didn't get in on the fun. And he didn't want an ass-kicking. Not from a woman who could bench easily more than Ace weighed.
"Fifty," Ace said. Was fifty dollars enough to not get punted to Jupiter by his sister?
