Cherish it,’ the sage old woman says. ‘For it can disappear quickly.’

I am with the fortune teller because of my dreams of avarice. She’s just told me to expect a windfall within months. But I don’t like her eerie last warning.

What can she mean?

      1. I am glad I am not alone in my quest for knowledge of future wealth and the possible misfortune that could befall the “I” in the story. I have an inkling of some truth?

  1. Lots of people who win big at the lottery end up losing most of it, maybe because of unwise investments or going on a buying spree. Maybe because the didn’t cherish their windfall.

    1. True. If I win lottery I’m buying a home. We’re renting and have been for our time together, both too old now for a bank to lend money for a mortgage too. I’m just back from purchasing my weekly ticket for tonight’s draw and even splurged on one for Saturday’s draw too! 🤞🤞
