NO FUTURE

THERE ONCE WAS A FORTUNE TELLER WHO READ PALMS. SHE NEVER SPOKE OF
ANY BAD OCCURENCES SHE SAW, ONLY GOOD ONES. ONE DAY A BEAUTIFUL
YOUNG GIRL WALKED IN AND REQUESTED HER PALM BE READ. THE FORTUNE
TELLER ATTEMPTED TO READ HER PALM BUT COULD NOT AND SHE WAS VERY
PUZZLED. "I CAN'T SEEM TO READ YOUR PALM, I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED
THIS BEFORE." THE GIRL, FURIOUS, LEFT THE HOME OF THE PALM READER.
AS THE GIRL WAS CROSSING THE STREET TO GET TO HER CAR,
ALL OF A SUDDEN OUT OF NOWHERE A CAR APPEARED AND STRUCK
HER DOWN DEAD. THE FORTUNE TELLER COULD NOT READ HER PALM
BECAUSE THE YOUNG GIRL HAD NO FUTURE TO READ.
