*The musical tinkling sounds that caught your ear outside the tent are louder here and coming from a woman dressed in bright colors and wearing lots of jewelry. She speaks to you in a low, quietEL-DB.com voice, drawing out the sounds of the words in a sing-song manner.* Greetings. You are in the presence of Madame Ofira, fortune teller extraordinaire. Would you like to know your tomorrow today?
You know my future?Not yet, but for me it is a simple matter to gaze into your tomorrows and beyond. *You notice the netting in her flowing black hair is interspersed with what look like gold coins and jewels that sparkle when they catch the light. Similar strands holding gold coins fringe her dress producing tinkling sounds as she moves about.*
How do you see it?My ability to see your future? I began getting impressions about people - like feelings, except that they arrived in my mind like images of things - when I was young. I found them to be confusing, so I mainly kept them to myself. One day, a man came into my life - I was not always a fortune teller, you see. At that very moment, I saw an image of a wedding and I knew he would be the one I would wed.
In spite of my family's objections, I married him and have traveled with him ever since. One day, while riding in a wagon with his grandmother who had approved of our union from the start, she began to tell me about herself. When she told me that the moment she laid eyes on me she had pictured a wedding, I gasped. 'I know, child. You have the sight, too,' she told me.
That's amazing!From that moment, I spent more and more time with her. It was then that my true education began. What she knew, I soaked up like a sponge. She drove me hard and after each of her clients had left, we talked about our impressions and what they meant. One day, she was too tired to take care of her clients and asked me to do their readings for her. She was in the room with me, testing me.
What objections?My husband and his entire family are traveling salespeople who drive their wagons from place to place selling small items and taking orders for large things. He was born on the road and has spent his entire life living like that and for them it was only natural that I join them. My father and sisters objected strongly, but I had seen the image. I had to go with him in spite of their displeasure.
And you passed.That night, around a campfire in the center of our circled wagons, oh such a feast was had. The food was so delicious, the music so uplifting, and the dancing... I danced until my feet hurt. Then, all of a sudden, the music stopped and it was so quiet. My husband's grandmother had stood up, commanding everyone's attention.
'Tonight we celebrate: a new seer is among us.' Heads turned this way and that, but each one settled on me. 'Come, child. Show them what you can do. Tell them all my future.' ThinkinEL-DB.comg it another test, I prepared myself as she had taught me by growing calm. I summoned my ability and gazed with my heart for the first time into her future. 'NO!' I cried. 'NOOooo!'
They objected?Yes, but that was long ago. Unfortunately, we have not spoken to each other since which has made me sad. A number of years ago, while giving a reading, I broke out into a sweat - I turned red and became hot to the touch. This lasted for several minutes as I tried in vain to cool myself. Needless to say, the reading was ruined. I had frightened my client half to death.
When I regained my composure and thought on what had happened, it suddenly dawned on me that someone close had died. Shortly after that, I received word from Latis that my father had been killed in a fire trying to rescue Latis's father. It all made sense then.
