I am on a plane from America back to England and I am bored out of my mind. There was still 3 hours left until the plane landed and I had nothing to do. My laptop died so my only form of entertainment was a pack of cards, but what use were a pack of playing cards when you had no one to play with? I looked around me and saw a boy who looked a little bit younger then me sitting behind me. He looked just as bored as I felt. Maybe he’ll play cards with me?
“Hey.” The boy turned his head so he was looking at me instead of the window.
“Wanna see a magic trick?” The boy looked a little confused but agreed all the same. I laid the cards in 3 rows of 7 on the fold out table in front of him.
“Pick a card but don’t tell me what it is.”
“Which row is it in?”
“The middle one.” I picked up the middle row, then the first row then the last row before putting the cards back in rows of 3 in front of him.
“Which row is your card in?”
“The first one.” I picked up the first row, then the second then the third. Once again laying the cards out in 3 rows in front of him I asked him which row his card was in.
“The middle one.” I picked up all the cards, shuffled them then picked out the jack of spades.
“Is this your card?” His eyes widened.
“How did you do that?”
“Magic.” He pouted and looked up at me with puppy dog eyes. It was only then that I realized just how attractive he is.
“Fine, I’ll show you.” I sighed to make it seem like I didn’t want to reveal my trick but on the inside I was happy to, it gave me a reason to continue talking to him. I explained how the card trick worked and he nodded, the tricked made a lot of sense and was really easy to do. After I finished explaining to him how the trick worked we continued to talk. Not only was this boy extremely attractive, he was also smart, funny and had good taste in everything. We talked through out the rest of the flight. You could say I was more then disappointed when the plane landed and it was time to get off. As I was about to get up the boy grabbed my hand.
“Wait! I want to try out the magic trick on you.”
“But it’s time to leave.”
“But we won’t actually be able to go until all these people have gotten their stuff from the overhead compartments.”
“Fine, show me the trick.” He set the cards out like I did and told me to pick a card. I picked the 3 of hearts. He executed the trick perfectly and after a few minutes he handed me a card.
“Is this your card?” I looked at the card and sure enough it was the 3 of hearts, but upon closer inspection I noticed something. He had written his number on the card. I looked up with an incredulous look on my face. He just winked at me, got up and exited the plane. After I got home I wasted no time texting him. How did you manage to write your number on the card without me noticing?
He texted me back less then 5 minutes later.Magic
