“The Fortune-Teller” / A Memorable Fancy #365

     The old woman laid the cards on the table in front of me, one by one. I caught her glancing at my expression, so she would know what the next card might tell. One by one, the cards read out my sad tale. But really, the next card said, I enjoyed all that abuse, all those buffs and rebuffs. The woman turned over the final card, the one that revealed the spirit’s holy gift: a happy life of delicious and self-affirming despair.
