Dead Man’s Hand (A Glimmer of Light)

by Sean Paraventi

After meeting at a high stakes poker table in Vegas, Richard and Elizabeth decide to continue their evening in Richard’s hotel room. We soon discover that this is by no means your ordinary hook up. Both characters open up and perhaps reveal more to each other than they had intended to. As the evening progresses, the pair find themselves locked in a game where the stakes are far higher than at any poker table. It’s a game that perhaps neither one can win.
