Her father had taught her well, showing her all the tricks of the trade she would need to entertain her paying audience, knowing she would put her own mark on some to refresh an old idea.
Her hands were enveloped in stretch lace effect gloves which would soon become her trademark.
Arms bare, she knelt on the bed, her father guiding her movements. They were unrushed and graceful.

Sitting in her dressing room years later, she remembered those times, his arms around her, whispering in her ear offering encouragement. She was now very much sought after, an expert and master in her field.
As she took to the stage, she let one hand skim the opposite arm and then did the same with the other.
‘As you can see,’ she said, ‘there is nothing up my sleeve as I’m not wearing any!’
The audience laughed, then watched The Laced Magician work her magic in awe.

About pensitivity101

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.
