This is a Story That Involves a Motel, A Billboard, and A Magician.

⚡Magic Touch⚡

今天我们来听一个故事,一个关于汽车旅馆和魔术师的故事。

From my hotel room window, I see an oversized billboard with his face on it: Jason, the Great Magician.

absent-mindedly turn the pages of the phone book and come across a city map. Sipping my iced latté, I run my fingers along the streets from the hotel to the opera hall. Not more than a half-hour walk.

glance at the clock. The show starts in one hour. Plenty of time! I gulp the last three sips of my latté and hop in the shower. Soon I’m on my way to the show, carrying a fancy black handbag and a genuine smile.

The billboard looks even more impressive from outside. The Great Jason's eyes seem to be glancing through me. I shiver and walk faster. I feel like a child about to open her birthday presents.

The hall is dark when I come in; the show is about to begin. I make my way backstage just as the great magician puts on his top hat.

"Daddy, I'm so glad to see you," I say in a half-whisper. "I'm in town for the writer's workshop, but I just couldn't miss your show." I give him a quick hug and go back into the seating area, leaving him with a startled smile. I settle down in the darkness, and the curtains open.

Magically, that show remains the Great Jason's best performance to this day.
