La Hire Jack

Post by palimpsestia » Sat Jan 07, 2012 12:52 am

Sean was convinced she could see the future.

“Prove it,” her big brother Pat demanded while they played a desultory game of war. “What’s my next card?”

Sean closed her eyes, concentrated. “Black Maria, Queen of Spades.”

Pat smirked and showed her La Hire Jack. He spent the rest of the game teasing that she couldn’t even guess whether she’d win the next hand, until she threw her cards in his face.

Sean stole the deck from his dresser that night and practiced predicting the draw until she was perfect. Unbeknownst to Sean, she was actually manipulating the deck telekinetically.

Sean can be a girl's name? Huh. I was so confused for a moment there

More importantly, I think I'd like the story better if Sean found out herself that she's telekinetic, or if we could "See" this fact and not just be "told". Funny to see her brother making fun of her
