Dis Master of Cards

Once upon a time, there’s a very normal little girl who lived in a very common village named Desa, with her very ordinary dad named Ayah, and people called her Gadis or to be shortened Dis.
.
On a one fine day, her dad took her to the city centre called Pasar Market. That place packed with people almost everyday, just like another normal market in this world.
.
Lucky for her, that day her dad got things to take care of, so he let her strolled around by herself.
Definitely, as a curious youngster Dis wondered from corner to corner and ran from one horde to another.
She wanted to find the most crowded circle and once she found one she would squirm to the center.
.
And it didn’t take long until she found one!
.
It was the most precious moment on her 6 years living on this planet. She saw a guy with a very beautiful hat and very a nice suit bathed on sunlight. That shiny guy seem joyful, appeared to play with a deck of cards. He shuffled them on various movement. Not a single piece escaped from his hands.
.
She was fascinated!

.
On that very moment, she decided that she will learn how to shuffle the cards, master it, and be exactly the same like that shiny guy. Or might be better.
.
And days went by.
.
It’s the time for her to be an elementary student. She met a lot of new friends with all beautiful big dreams. Farmer. Teacher. Butcher, like her dad. Fisherman. Even some of her friends wanted to go to the cities and leave the village once they grew up. That’s something that never passed her mind, not even a split second. Dis loved her village. So much.
.
Every time anyone asked her what she wanted to be when she’s older, she would say “Master of Cards!”. Without any doubt.
.
Some people would ridicule her. Some people would give unnecessary advice such as, “Just go find a Master of Cards and marry him, don’t mind to be the one”. Some people would keep their mouth silent, but secretly believed she would forget that dream sooner or later.
.
She didn’t bother. She kept her dream. And steadily she learned to be better each day.
.
And years went by.
.
Againts all odds, she mastered how to handle the cards and how to have fun with them. She found a bunch of new ways of shuffling no one could imagine before. Sometimes she went to another village to amuse neighbourhood villagers, but she never moved from her childhood home.
.
And she lived happily ever after.
