The Knave of Hearts #4

by

Shortly after I convinced Jenny to move in with me, she noticed a bloodstained Benjamin I accidentally dropped. 'Til then she thought I was a clerk. By the end of that day, we were fleeing the same gang who’d employed me the past few months. They figured out I was helping myself to more than my cut of each job.

The leader claimed he was a magician, but he lied. If he was, I wouldn’t have shot him so easily. He knew as much magic as I did—squat.

Hadn’t killed since I was a kid, but he threatened my Jenny.

    I'm beginning to like this kid! :) Maybe that's not right, but I do.
