“Sure. You can join our poker game. I’ll have a special seat just for you,” he promised. “You can play as long as you sit there. Deal?”
I nodded. I’d been begging my friend, Sean, to let me join his all-boys poker game for months.
I had no idea what I was agreeing to.
Saturday night, the other guys were there already. He introduced me to everyone. They all looked strangely excited to have me join them.
“So, where’s my special seat?” I asked.
The guys were grinning like fools. Sean took my hand and lead me into the kitchen.
