The Knave of Hearts #9


Hospitals terrified Jenny, so our boys were born at home the old fashioned way. I delivered each one, cleaned him up nice. This shocked her. I guess she thought all I was good for was burglin’ and pissin’ off mobsters.

“How d’you know this stuff?”

I laughed. “I used to wanna be a vet.”

Two boys. Got their golden blonde hair from the wish (the curse?) but I didn’t tell Jenny about that. She didn’t believe in magic. Most folks still didn’t.

We were kinda old for kids. She’d been barren until now. Figured I’d use the wish on her.
