When I’m done, I hand them back to her. “This reading is general. I want to see where you are without any intent. If we were reading for a particular thing, I would have you focus on that while you were shuffling. But, I’ve been getting knowings about you the entire time you touched my cards. I am going to include those while I read for you.”

Butterflies fill my stomach.

“Don’t be nervous,” she reassures me.

She starts laying down a card. “Interesting. This is your present position. You are having an inner struggle. You are stuck in a rut and you can’t see past your own troubles.” She reaches out and covers my hand with hers. “I know it seems like things are building up against you, but the reality is, you are building that mess. You need to learn not to bury yourself.”

She covers that card by laying another over it. “This is your immediate influence.”

“What is that?” I point at the card. It doesn’t look good. It’s dark and twisted with a monster on it.

“The devil.” Lucy explains. She shakes her head.

Lexa reaches out this time and puts her hand on my knee. “It’s not necessarily a bad thing.”

The fortune teller shakes her head and sighs. “In this case, I’m afraid it’s not a good thing. This card means that you are living in a world of fear, domination and bondage. It reiterates the present position. I know you lust for retribution, but your fears are just that, they are feelings and not facts. You’ve become blind to facts.”

My reading continued like that. It wasn’t a lot of good. When she lays down the tenth card, it is covered in cups. “What is that one?”

“This is the eight of cups, reversed. It means you will stagnate and abandon relationships.” Lucy looked at me sadly. “But you are already doing that, aren’t you?”

I feel sick to my stomach. Nowhere in this reading was there a tall, sexy stranger who was going to love me and sweep me off my feet. “I’m not leaving behind anything good.”

“You’ve let your soulmate get away. You’ve effectively spited yourself. This reading says you are in a bad state. We need to do something about that. I can’t make you choose good things. I’m sure your aunt has already tried to do that. She’s very determined to sow good things everywhere she goes. What I can’t understand is how you got so turned around.”

Ali Lucia Sky is the author of The Powers That Be series. She lives in Southern California with her husband and a house full of kitty cats and a yard full of crows.

She loves laughing, drinking good coffee, the smell of pizza, and supporting animal rescues.

When she isn’t writing or dreaming of new stories, she can be found planning her next vacation because traveling is LIFE.

If you encounter her in the wild, don’t be offended if she should run away. She’s timid with strangers, but can be plied with shiny things and pictures of your cat or dog.

She’s a weirdo like that.
