Fandom: Now you see me
A/N: Here is my first ‘Now you see me’ imagine, yay ! I hope you’’ll like it
When on the outside was getting colder, it was very difficult to attract the attention of viewers. Everyone were hurry to get to their work or their homes, so almost no one rarely stopped in the middle of the park, to watch someone’s performances. Sometimes, however, it happened ,that even the most busy people paused to watch your little show. You have all the attention of the audience, trying to obtain as much praise as it possible, and by the way- money. At this regular place, you used to take only a cup of coffee, a deck of cards and a few small metal objects, that could be a great advantage.
While some of the usual afternoons, when most people focus on you, you gave another demonstration of card stunts. One hand movement you made, the whole deck of cards missing from your hands, and after a while spilled onto the ground from both sleeveless of your coat. People were delighted and applauded so loudly that it scared even a few squirrels. You kindly bow your head when poeple threw the money into your open, almost empty bag.
You gathered hastily cards from the ground and then started to shuffle them again, when you noticed that someone looks at your, from little distance. The boy was about your age, he was very handsome and looked at you with a slight smile on his face. You were looking at him from time to time, focusing only on the trick, but after a while, he said something loudly, capturing the audience’s attention.
-It’s very impressive. But I’m sure I can impress your audience much better.
All the people, who had just surrounded you, with curious look on their faces approached the boy, watching him intently.
-I’m Jack Wilder. And today I want you to show how I’m gonna flex this little spoon … - boy pulled out a small metal spoon to tea.- Only because of the power of my mind.
Outraged, carefully you have been watching the boy with one hand holding the spoon, and the other slowly lowered down, making the metal flex more and more. The audience was charmed.
-Really well, Mr. Wilder-You shout.-but not as impressive as yours ability to fraud.
You come closer to the boy and take out from his pocket half of the teaspoon which he was hiding all the time insidiously, and you showed it proudly to the public.
Most people started to applause, until Jack turned to you.
-At least, I tried.
Since then, every day you were disclose famous male magician. He came in the same place at the same time, each time trying to impress your audience. And every time you proudly and loudly told what’s going on in his trick, which you gain growing applause and tips. People were delighted with the two of you and often ask for a common trick, but you refuse it every time, knowing that if you agreed to one, more no longer be refused. Jack every day promised you and the people that he come back here tomorrow, with another better trick and he always kept his promise.
In the evening, when the sun was setting it was getting colder. You sit down quietly on the bench, saying goodbye to the audience and finishing your hot tea. You hide your deck of cards in you bag when someone sat next to you. None other than himself, Jack Wilder.
-Successful performance, Miss [Y/L/N]?
-Of course. I’m very satisfied- You said, shuffling a deck of cards in your hands.
-Much more than mine.
-Oh, Mr. Wilder, this wasn’t that bad. I guessed only two of the three of your tricks, so you should be proud of yourself-you said, joking. Jack still gently smiling but lowered his head and put his hands in his pockets.
-Jack-You say for the first time using his name, turning to him.-It was really great. You’re very talented, you know it.
-Yeah, I know.- He sighed, looking at you-It’s just that I was trying to impress you for so many weeks, but every time you is the one, who impress me.
You withered. You had no clue that this hustler, with a beautiful smile come here every day, exposed himself to ridicule just to impress you. Because for what?
-And so did you. That you were so tenacious, stubborn and unyielding. But why?
-I don’t know.-He said-You are beautiful, intelligent, you can really magic and not just cards, but yourself too. Perhaps that’s why.
You smile shyly at him, and spread them out before him the entire deck of cards.
-Choose-You asked, pointing to the cards.
-Really ?- He asked, not knowing if it’s a trick, or not.
Jack chose a card and handed it to you. Two of the hearts. You made it together with all cards and you shuffle them again. When you finished, you spread them out before Jack, on the whole deck.
-Is your card here?
Jack looked back, looking at all the cards.
-No-He said-Then where is it?
You come closer to him and you kiss gently his cold lips, you fingers sinking into his hair. Shocked boy had no idea what to do, and when he start to kiss you back, you separate from him abruptly showing him his card, making him smiled even wider.
Two of the hearts.
