With this hand…

She said she could read palms.

I thought nothing of it. Yet, glancing back, I wonder…

She took my hand into hers, furrowed her brow, deep in thought, pondering. I took a sip of my drink with my free hand, nonchalant. She peered harder, hard enough to get my attention. I put my glass back onto the table, leaned forward and looked at my hand.

“It’s not good, not bad either, but this is…”

I asked her what she saw, what she meant.

“Well, according to this, you are going to be very successful, possibly wealthy…”

Sounded good so far, but I knew there was more to come.

“…but, well, it looks like you won’t be happy.” There was some sort of finality in the way she said those words.

I thought nothing of it; the night went on without further incident.

That was a while back, forever ago, its 2:22 pm now, I’m looking back….

And thinking.

    Well … I don’t like believing in them things, but that there is That Realm … that, I can’t doubt.
    I have had a brush with a palm-reader, too, once. Muhfucker was so spot-on for the first guesses that I had to sprint off. I was a kid, and she was a stranger. Scared me real good.
    I don’t doubt the power of that stuff. But the goodness or badness … you get to choose.
