Backstage the assistant stares at her tea.

“What do you see?” asks the magician.

The assistant stares down and frowns. The leaves in the tea form patterns.

“Nothing” she replies but everything comes together.

On stage the magicians feels icy steel. The blades have been switched.

The assistant smiles. Revenge.
