Life Line

Daily Prompt

You’re on a long flight, and a palm reader sitting next to you insists she reads your palm. You hesitate, but agree. What does she tell you?


I really wanted to complete this book I had been reading for weeks now. The flight was long and I had nothing else to do, so after getting comfortable in my seat after the plane took off, I opened the page 334 and started reading my book. The lady sitting next to me had been silent till now and then she turned to me and introduced herself. She told me she is a palm reader and since the flight is long she would like to read my palm and tell me what does the lines say.

I never believed in them because of the fear maybe, that the predictions could be right. But I avoided these sorts of things. She insisted and I finally gave up. She read my palm for a long time, I thought several hours will pass and she will continue reading my palm.

It didn’t take her long and after reading she looked up and stared at me like she had seen a ghost in my palms. I asked her what was it and she stayed silent for a while and took a deep breath and whispered in my ear-

“You wouldn’t be able to complete this book on this flight”

And then she laughed. :p
