The Fortune Teller said...

In the dark and hazy room, the Fortune Teller peered into her crystal ball and delivered the grave news.
"There is no easy way to tell you, so I will be blunt. You must prepare yourself to be a widow. Your husband will die a violent and horrible death this year.”
The young woman was clearly shaken. She stared first at the lined face of the old woman, then at the lonely flickering candle, and finally at her own shaking hands. She tried to compose herself by taking a few deep breaths. Her mind was racing. She simply had to know. Her question forced its way out:

"Will I be acquitted?”
