The psychic

Jennifer visited a psychic of some local repute.  In a dark and hazy room, peering into a crystal ball, the mystic delivered grave news: “There’s no easy way to say 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, Jennifer 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.  She simply had to know.  She met the fortune teller’s gaze, steadied her voice and asked “Will I be acquitted?”
