Daring Destiny ~ Part 7
Rainy took a sip of her tea, shook her rattle over the cards, and took a deep breath as she clicked that she was ready for the next caller. The call connected.
“Hello, thank you for calling Lotus Psychic Source. This is Blossom Moonlight. How can I help you today?”
She heard crying on the other end of the line.
“Hello, ma’am, I can tell your upset. Let me help you.”
“I shouldn’t be calling,” said a woman.
“Think of it as calling a friend,” said Rainy. “I’m here to listen and I’ll guide you if I can. Just take a deep breath and talk to me.”
“I’m in trouble,” said the woman.
“We’ll work through this together,” said Rainy. “Can you tell me your name?”
“No,” said the woman, another sob escaping.
“Okay,” said Rainy, “I’m shuffling the cards now, why don’t you tell me what you can. I’m listening.”
As Rainy shuffled the cards, panic flooded her body. Something was very wrong with the woman on the other end of the phone and Rainy could tell it wasn’t just that she had cheated on her boyfriend or something petty like that. Whatever was happening in this woman’s world was serious. She took another deep breath.
“Hello, are you still there?” asked Rainy.
“I’m mixed up in something,” the woman whispered.
Rainy closed her eyes and tried to focus on the woman’s words.
“It’s big and I’m scared,” said the woman. “I want out, but I don’t know how. Can you tell me how?”
Rainy started to pull cards from the deck and placed them on the table in front of her. The Orcle cards were clear, the woman was in danger. Rainy took another deep breath, trying to keep panic out of her voice as she studied each card. There was pain, anguish, and even death in every card she pulled. The woman hadn’t been exaggerating, she was in a lot of trouble.
“Listen close,” said Rainy, “you need to leave. Drop everything and just get out of there. The cards are clear, if you don’t get out, which you know you need to do, then it will end very badly. Tell me where you are and I’ll call the police for you. They will make sure you’re safe.”
“I can’t!” cried the woman, before she broke down in louder sobs.
“You can,” said Rainy. “You have control over your destiny. The cards show the current path, but you can change that.” Rainy pulled another card and saw a light at the end of the tunnel. “You have to get out now though. You have to run.”
“I can’t,” the woman said again. “They’ll find me and they’ll kill me.”
“The cards don’t say that,” said Rainy. “They show it’ll be a lot worse if you stay. Please, I’m begging you, leave now. Just hang up the phone and leave.”
Rainy felt panic surge through her veins as the line was silent. She hoped the woman had taken her advice and run. “Hello?”
“Shhh,” the woman whispered. “He’s coming.”
Rainy pulled another card and death leered up at her. “Hang up the phone! Hang up now!”
She heard a shuffle, the grumble of a man’s voice right before the ring of a slap. The woman cried out and the line went dead.
