Then he turned and looked at Leonie.
At the old woman's words, Leonie's face stiffened as if she had stopped breathing.
“Right, it feels like something is happening to me, but I don’t know what it is.”
Tears seemed to fall from her big eyes any second.
I felt sorry for her and I was sorry again, so I held her hand tightly.
“No, actually, something was happening from the beginning.
Like someone controlling my life.
It's like waiting for me to die.”
I was startled and put my hand on it.
“Leonie, what do you mean?”
“I heard that you see the past and the future very well.
And they give you clear answers.”
However, Leonie did not take her eyes off the old woman.
Shivering, she pressed every word and asked the old woman.
“Can you tell me what situation I'm in?”
When Leonie asked in a trembling voice, the old woman grinned.
It seems to be to lighten the mood, but somehow it just looked bizarre in my eyes.
I will solve your troubles.”
Then the old woman pointed to the card on the table.
“Pick out two of these.”
There were quite a few cards stacked neatly on top of each other on the table.
I looked at the card carefully while holding Leonie's hand.
'Isn't it too new for something grandma uses?'
The paper had no choice but to be worn at the corners after using it several times, but it was as clean as new.
“The first card will tell you the problem you are facing, and the second card will give you a solution.”
At the old woman's words, Leonie pulled out a card with a nervous face.
Then the old woman sluggishly laid out the two cards Leonie had drawn.
After a moment of silence,
What broke the heavy silence was the old woman's low sigh.
“Isn’t that nice?”
Leonie, who was also nervous, put her hands together and waited for her lips to drop.
But the old woman did not open her mouth easily.
Ha, where do astrologers get training as a group?
Very similar pattern, same.
'But I don't think I've heard this voice before.'
I was tilting my head with a strange sense of deja vu, but the old woman continued.
“Your fate is changing.”
“Gee, but that’s not good.”
Your first words are similar to what you said to me.
Only the people have changed, but they are the same.
Now it's obvious he'll make you anxious like this and then ask for money.
The first card Leonie took out was a card painted black without any drawing.
Even if I didn't know exactly what it meant, I knew right away that it meant something bad.
'What, if you turn over all these cards, aren't they all just ominous cards? Are you trying to do business with human psychology in this way?”
– I thought and kept grumbling.
Until the old woman said the next thing.
“Someone has stolen your destiny.
There will be no peace until it returns.”
I was even more surprised than Leonie and jumped up from my seat.
My heart beat uncomfortably and terribly fast.
Stealing Leonie's fate.
It was clear that maybe, or not exactly, it was talking about me.
At that moment, the old woman raised her head and looked straight at me.
From the moment I first saw it, I felt an inexplicable sense of deja vu, but the moment I met her red eyes like blood hidden in my hair, everything became clear.
'It's that grandmother.'
On the morning of returning from Archduke Cygnus's castle, the old woman he had seen at the front gate seemed obvious.
I stare at the old woman in bewilderment, but Leonie sneakily grabs my hand.
“Ribe, are you okay?”
“yes I'm fine.”
Leonie examined my face and then asked the old woman with a calm face.
“Do you even know who stole my fate?”
Oh my God.
My heart, which had been beating terribly fast, stopped.
I guess this life is going to die like this.
Unfortunately, we don’t know that far.”
The stopped heart slowly starts beating again.
“… … But he is a very close person.”
Wow, it's no joke to get your hands on it!
In the meantime, Leonie's face turned to something thoughtful.
“So you mean bad things keep happening to me because someone hijacked my destiny?”
“Then what should I do now?”
I felt like I was about to pass out and fall.
What if I bring out my story here?
I hate this situation too, and I don't know what to do!
Zerlac is scared to death, so I'm going to wrap it up and give it back to Leonie!
“Something is wrong with your father, too.
I see a very dangerous shadow.”
When the old woman said that, Leonie gasped for breath.
God, how do you do that?”
“It won't be easy.
I got caught up in what everyone fears, so the aftermath will linger.”
I slowly took Leonie's hand.
It was because his cold, dry hands were trembling.
“It's not that there's no way, but it's not that easy.”
“Tell me please.
I will do anything.”
“Then I need something.”
As the old woman blurted out her words, Leonie, quick-witted, untied the necklace from around her neck and held it out to the old woman.
“If you check it, you will see that it is quite valuable.
I don't know about fate, and I'll pay any amount as long as you don't let bad things happen anymore.”
The old woman glanced at the jeweled necklace lying on the table, slowly put it in her hand and carried it under the table.
But it was a strange thing.
Her hands were too fine and white to be an old woman.
But before you even focus on that fact-
“Okay, then let’s open the next card.”
Turning over the second card next to it, this time a bird painted blue.
“Five… … .”
“What does this mean?”
“I do not know.”
The old woman tilted her head as if she couldn't understand easily.
“There is nothing you can do.
But it will be freer than now.”
“What do you mean?”
“I will give you a bracelet that prevents misfortune.
Then, slowly and one by one, the things twisted by the escaped fate will return.”
Then he took a knotted bracelet from a jar on the table.
Leonie accepted the bracelet with both hands as if receiving a piece of gold.
In the meantime, the old woman gave me a restless look.
“Is there anything you want to ask, too?”
For a very brief moment, I wondered if I should ask the old woman about my fate.
But right now doesn't seem like a good time, so I decided to keep my mouth shut.
I can't ask right now with Leonie.
The old woman giggled a couple of times, as if my reaction was funny, then said:
“It is a strange thing.
A new fate is approaching the young lady.”
The old woman's finger was pointing at none other than me.
It overshadowed my efforts to never listen to what astrologers say.
“But the fate that has come to you is too great for you to bear.”
“… … .”
At that moment, I thought of him.
The man with dark black hair and auburn eyes.
“Oh, you are afraid of him.”
“… … .”
“I'm pretending to be calm, but I think he might kill her someday.”
I wanted to tell you not to mislead me with nonsense, nonsense, but I couldn't say a word.
It may have been a voice that came from deep inside my heart the whole time I was facing him.
How the hell do you know that?
Instead, as if possessed by something, he questioned the old woman.
“How can I put the messed up puzzle back to normal?”
When I asked, the old woman stretched her lips and smiled.
I remember everything you said
I've tried, but it just doesn't work out the way I want.
When I asked a question, the old woman smiled with her lips parting strangely, but said nothing.
“Please tell us.”
When I asked in a more earnest voice, the old woman lazily stretched the corners of her mouth.
“I do not know.
It all depends on your choice.”
“It depends on my choice?”
