The cheat

The smoke in the room worsened my already crestfallen mood.

I had been jobless for a while and in huge debts. This was my only hope. If this did not work, death was the only option.

I glanced at Bruce across the table; an evident smug on his face.

She sat on the arm of his chair. My Lady Luck – Bruce called her.

My eyes met hers to a lingering stare. She bit her lower lip. I knew that signal. But, should I trust her? Well, this was my only chance. I had to.

There was horror on Bruce’s face as I placed the queen of hearts on the table.
