For her…a Queen.
“You got some kind of luck, lady.” It was the dealer.
Jodie smiled. “It’s just a game. Just a game.”
A drabble is a very short story of exactly 100 words. Exactly…so no cheating. Feel free to join in and write your own drabbles on Fridays and tag them with “friday drabble” and on Twitter with the hashtag #fridaydrabble. Thanks to Stevil for the inspiration.
