Jack of Hearts…next chapter:)

“Sit down and pay attention,” said Ace, pacing back and forth.  “The Message Stone has one play left, so listen up and you’ll understand what Benny is doing to those he enslaves. Help me take him down.”  Joseph, Ian  and Leo nodded.

Ace played the stone.

“Why’d ya do that?” said Joseph.  “How am I supposed ta sleep tonight?”

“That was bad,” said Ian, looking down.

“I know where one of the warehouses is,” said Leo.   “It’s on the Northwest side of Chicago.”  He brings them there and those who make it, are sold and shipped.”

“Well, go now,” said Ace, making a call.

“What?  No recon?” asked Ian, nervously.

“We’ll look when we get there,” said Ace, pulling on fingerless gloves.

“How we gonna get them back to where they came from?” asked Ian.

Joseph shook his head.  “Maybe the same way they got em here.”

“Oh, yeah,” said Ian, nodding.  “I bet you’re right.”

“Let’s go,” said Ace, heading toward the door.  “Leo, tell me where we’re headed.”

                                                  ***

“Nice park,” said Leo.

“Chicago’s full of parks,” said Ace.  “People identify where they’re from by naming their park, you should know that.”

“What’s this one?” asked Leo.

“Portage.”

“What’s that mean?” he asked.

“No idea,” said Ace.  “Let’s just keep going, shall we.”

“I’ve never been in this part of town before.  We tend to stay away from nice neighborhoods.”

“Ian,” said Ace.  “This is just a regular neighborhood, not necessarily a nice one.

“Ah,” he said, nodding. “I don’t hear gunshots, so I just thought, you know, nice neighborhood.”

Ace’s phone vibrated.  “They found the Three of Spades,” she muttered, scrolling down on her phone.

“Alive?” asked Joseph, hopefully.

Ace shook her head. “I should have said, they found parts of him.”

    Your imagination is worth an entirely new card beyond this deck or a Tarot deck.
