Jennifer decided to pay a visit to a psychic who had a reputation locally for being able to foretell the future.
In a dark and hazy room, peering into a crystal ball, the mystic delivered some disturbing news for her: “There’s no easy way to say 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, Jennifer 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.
There was something that she simply had to know.
She met the fortune teller’s gaze, steadied her voice, and asked: “Will I be acquitted?”
