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.
