A Look at Fortune

She turned the cards upside down to see what they contained and read them out to her client, a lady in her mid-forties. The candle light flickered making her bangles glint as she reached out to hand over a doll; “This will help reduce that aura of bad luck. Keep it under her pillow”, she said in a low voice. Her client accepted it with relief shining in her eyes.

The clock struck 8 and she closed up. She went home, freshened up and sat down contentedly with her favourite Jules Verne classic.


Today Pegman is in New Orleans. Join us for some Voodoo, or maybe you’d like your fortune to be told?

The word prompt (Classic) has been given by Six Sentence Stories at GirlieOnTheEdge hosted by Denise Farley.
