DP Daily Prompt: Lifeline Post by Ranu
Palmistry,I’ve heard a lot about Cheiro’s palmistry, and how accurately he could read anyone’s palm. I was flying from London,England to Dhaka,Bangladesh I don’t know why on earth I was thinking of palmistry. Suddenly a big burly woman sat on the empty seat beside me. After exchanging some pleasantries,she introduced herself as a palm reader. It didn’t awaken my curious mind,rather I stay away from people who try to tell me what’s in store for me in the coming days,months or years. I am happy to take each day as it comes,not what I can look forward to.
The woman wanted to read my hand,I tried to excuse myself.She insisted I should,I tried to shun her off politely. It seemed she was bent on showing me her craft. I gave in and let her read my palm.Well, what she came up with stunned me. I would marry a physician,he lives in North America. She kept talking, I tuned her off. I thanked her. I turned around and tried to take a nap. Her shrill voice,her demeanor, constantly interrupted my thoughts. I was relieved when the flight attendant called her. I was glad to see her leave!
