prologue

The figure sat behind the protection curtain, on the second story of the saloon and watched.

Watched the gambler. Watched the gambler watch other gamblers. Watched cards change hands and move to convenient spots in the deck.

The figure stood up. It was time to make a move. It would take time and energy, but it could be done. Conning the card shark was going to be amusing.
