The Knave of Hearts #18


First time in a while I got hugged by an assassin.

“Don’t you have any other family?” Seesaw asked.

“I was disowned.” But that reminded me about my brother and Jo.

“Come home with me, then.”

Seesaw’s house was tiny, dilapidated. I watched through the window as she and her hitman hubby argued. The big goon cradled their baby, lookin’ scared. Scared? Of me?

“But he’s a burglar.”

“He just lost everything. Please.

That li’l girl trusted me. That made me sick. No way was I gonna ruin another family. Before Seesaw could open the door again, I was gone.
