Playing Cards

The player looked down at her cards, watching the colors and shapes waltz across the white backgrounds. The King of Diamonds jumped across the three of spades, trying to draw the attention of the Queen of Clubs, but the Queen was too busy dancing with the Joker. In his anger, the King of Diamonds stole a spade from the three and hit the Jack of Hearts in the face. The King then looked up at the player and, in a woman’s voice, asked, “You gonna play?”

Glancing up in confusion, the player saw her sister giving her an irked look.

“You gonna play?” the sister asked again.

She returned her gaze to her cards. The characters were all where they belonged. She threw down the King.

The sister’s face didn’t change. “That move makes zero sense.”

“That’s ‘cause you don’t see what I see.”
