Her hand seemed perfect.
Three Aces, two Kings, two Queens.
It was her turn.
A Queen first (having the king and ace), she grinned.
First round to her.
The King followed.
Round two won.
Then the Ace.

Another grin, wiped off in a flash.
Two of trumps, of which she had none.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    I am clueless about card games but you wrote this in perfectly!!!

    • We used to play a lot growing up, a big favourite being auction rummy. We used to gang up on sister’s boyfriend of the time, bidding for cards he wanted but we really didn’t just to leave him with a fistful when one of us got out. Oh, those were the days. 🙂

        There were a couple of Indian games we used to play as a family too actually when we were younger. Those were the days!
