Hi everyone. It's time for Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus. Just in case you don't already know, Saturday Centus is a writing meme. The basic rules are that you can use the prompt she provides and UP TO 100 additional words to write a story of your choosing in any style of writing you prefer. This week's prompt is "Everything depended upon this single card" and is in bold. It must be kept intact within the story. So why don't you stop by Jenny's blog (off on my tangent) and check out other stories created using this prompt by clicking here:

The room was dark. She heard the dealer say "Last one down and dirty." Once her eyes had adjusted, she saw granny clutching her cards to her bosom. She prayed and held her breath. She knew everything depended upon this single card.
