The Fortune Teller

In a dark and hazy room, peering into a crystal ball, 
the mystic delivered grave news.


"There's no easy way to tell you this, so I'll just be blunt.


Prepare yourself to be a widow. 


Your husband will die a violent and horrible death this year."


Visibly shaken, Laura stared at the woman's lined face, then at the single flickering candle, then down at her hands.


She took a few deep breaths to compose herself and to stop her mind racing.


She simply had to know.  


She met the Fortune Teller's gaze, 
steadied her voice and asked,





 
"Will I be acquitted?"
