The psychic smiled upon seeing the wealthy couple waiting for a reading intuiting from her familiar spirits that their future looked promising. She hoped they would purchase further services and perhaps even partner with her helping her restore her own fortunes in the competitive occult arena where mediums and fortune tellers were readily available.
When the tarot cards confirmed her intuition she predicted that the husband’s investments and public influence would increase and his wife would overcome infertility and depression. However, after paying the basic fee the couple declined further services hinting that they doubted her abilities were real.
