Just a quick warmup before getting back to my newest novel. Can you tell what I was doing last night?
She’s got a king showing.
With my twelve I’ve no choice but to hit. I tap, and a card appears. Ace. Of course. Again. Three.
I’m pissing off the guy in the beanie cap sitting third base. He’s showing eleven. He’s got chips in his hand, itching to double down. I take another card.
Four. Thank God. I stay.
Double Down gets his king. You’re welcome.
It’s just me and the dealer.
She turns over her card. A queen.
