In a dark and hazy room, peering into a crystal ball, the mystic delivered grave news: "There is no easy way to tell you this, so I'll just be blunt. Prepare yourself to be a widow. Your husband will die a violent and horrible death this year." Visibly shaken, Laura stared at the woman's lined face, then at the single flickering candle, then down at her hands. She took a few deep breaths to compose herself and to stop her mind from racing. She simply had to know. She met the fortune-teller's gaze, steadied her voice, and asked, "Will I be acquitted?"
