Playtime

"I've taught you how to ride and shoot like an adult; now you must learn to play like an adult," Sebastian said as he showed 10-year-old Ciel to the den with the billiards table.

Ciel studied the table while Sebastian demonstrated and explained the rules of blackball billiards to him, and finally concluded, "So it's like playing marbles, but using a stick."

"Excellent analogy, young master," as Sebastian handed him the cue. "Here, give it a try..."

Ciel potted three balls on his first shot.

Sebastian stared, and Ciel smirked at him. "You never noticed the stepstool under the table?"
