The 100-Word Challenge is a weekly writing prompt exercise hosted by Verbal Verbosity; the challenge is to write exactly 100 words on the given topic. This week's challenge word and my topic is: Fortune
Ada looked quizzically at the woman behind the table. She had expected an old woman holding a crystal ball, but this fortune teller was no more than 40 years old.See other entries here. New word prompts given every Saturday.
"Show me your left hand," the woman whispered.
"I don't want to be told I'll meet a tall, dark, handsome man," Ada volunteered wryly.
The woman studied Ada's palm in the half light of the tent.
"You will have a long life," she said. Ada smiled.
"You will have two husbands," she added.
Ada withdrew her hand, surprised.
"Will either of them be tall, dark and handsome?" she asked breathlessly.
