52-word-challengeThis week’s prompt is to write about the badly timed trump!!

Thanks Sacha!

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.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    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!

    Amazing response, I would never have thought of a cards trump. That’s what I love about these prompts, such an amazing array of responses.
