An Uneasy Feeling  
I sigh, shutting my laptop closed again. No message from Lesandra, which could be good but it could be bad too. Yet, the same can be said if I do get a message from her. I just hope she hasn't sent anyone to check up on us. That never goes well and I would rather not have another broken bone.

Glancing at the clock and see it is still earlier than I thought. I get to my feet and start to pace, uneasy.

We have been here for weeks and soon we will have to leave, though I'm not certain where we will go yet. There are a number of places I am considering. I would like to go to a place that is warm. I have to admit, the thought of going to another continent is appealing. Perhaps we could go to the United States. I've been gone for awhile, so things probably have calmed down.

I turn sharply, pacing the other way. I just know staying here much longer could be problematic. Eventually, I'm sure people will realize we have been here for quite awhile and they might figure out how we've been paying for the rooms. I don't even think Nina knows. If she does, she hasn't said.

I know she'll protest leaving since there are no problems, but I'd rather leave before problems arise. I might be a witch, but magic can only manage some things when trying to stay one step ahead of the law.

With that on my mind and lack of communication from Lesandra, I feel very nervous. As if I should look over my shoulder. I know not to do that in public though because if you act or look guilty or jumpy, people pick up on that, noticing you. That is how a lot of gamblers get caught, if they cheat. At least the gamblers that don't get far.

The thought of gambling makes my eyes fall on the deck of cards I have out. I'll probably be going back to that soon enough. Then an idea comes to me and I pick up the pack, sliding it into the back pockets of my jeans. Why bother waiting? Maybe I'll find a fool to play against. After all, a fool and his money are soon parted. It could give us some more income, but could also help with the unease I am feeling.
