Step right up and meet Jay Fields: Illusionist. Mentalist. Trickster.
I think in triangles. You think in straight lines.
I show you a table and make you believe it’s a chair.
Smoke and mirrors, sleight of hand, misdirection. I trick and deceive.
But most of all, I put on a good show.
The world thinks I killed a man, but I didn’t. Bear with me. It’s all a part of the plan.
Revenge is what I want. I want it for me and I want it for her.
I want it for all six of us.
She doesn’t remember me, but she’s the reason for everything. She’ll be my prize at the end of all this – if I can hold onto my willpower, that is. Maybe I’ll slip up a little, have a taste, just a small one.
So go ahead and pick a card. Come inside and see the show. Look at my hands, look so closely that you can’t see what’s happening while you’re so focused on looking. I’ll be destroying your world from right here in the spotlight.
You’ll never see me coming until it’s too late.
I’ve only got one heart, and after I’ve pulled off my grand deception I’ll hand it right to her.
So, sit back, relax, and let my girl tell you our story. You’re in for one hell of a ride.
Matilda Brandon lost her mother tragically when she was very young. It marked her soul and now she lives in suspended animation - working in the office of her father’s law firm and occasionally dating online. Until one day, she is jolted back to life by the arrival of handsome and enigmatic illusionist, Jay Fields.
Jay is seeking legal counsel and firmly insists that the small Brandon firm represent him. Matilda knows that there is something so much deeper to Jay and his reasons. The more time she spends with him, the harder she falls for him. But between unanswered questions and mixed signals, Matilda is afraid to risk all that she has left – her heart.
“If I ask you to do something for me, will you do it and not ask questions? Just accept that this is how it has to be right now?” Some kind of apprehension takes hold in my gut. “I’ll try.” “I need you not to touch me, not to try to kiss me like you did during the movie. I know it’s hypocritical, given what’s been brewing between us lately, but it’s not in my power to explain yet. I need you to be my friend, Matilda, to spend time with me.
Jay still remembers the pain of his childhood and that pain is still driving him. He is going to perform the biggest illusion of his career and when the smoke clears justice will be done and Matilda will belong to him.
“Be a kid again and believe in the fantastical. Life is more fun with a little smoke and mirrors.”
