Abby flipped the coin. Isaac called out, “Heads.”
She caught it. Heads.
“Do it again,” he said.
“Just do it.”
After his fifth correct guess, Abby said, “It’s a trick.”
But not even he knew how he was doing it. “Again,” he said.
He watched the coin more closely this time. As the word, “Tails,” escaped his lips, he saw the coin flinch mid-air and was certain he had caused it. Abby caught it and showed him tails.
“You’re cheating,” she said.
And all he could think was that, on some level, she was right.
