Dirty Little Sixes
On a cold and rainy night, a young man’s car breaks down on the wrong side of the tracks. As he seeks shelter and help inside an apparently abandoned warehouse, he discovers an old deck of cards and the remains of a poker game, and strange things begin to happen.
Dirty little sixes from that old deck first disappear, and then re-appear over and over, even in the midst of a game with a crusty old cigar-chewing curmudgeon he happens upon in the warehouse.
Frightened and confused, the young man escapes, grabbing the old deck of cards as he runs for home, where, in relative safety, the final revelation brings him full circle.
