Still, he is not pleased with his streak of bad luck and wonders where his poor fortune is coming from. He has only to look over his shoulder. His companion’s affection only masks her duplicity. Her ring is actually a mirror to show his cards to his opponent. Everyone knows he is hiding the ace of hearts.
