Voices and Tarot, by Kally Jo Surbeck (drabble)
Before me lays the spread. My traitorous blood quickens and sweat betrays my dread. How do I give this reading? For she’s in danger still. The man who sought to silence her is not among the dead. Her ancestors beg me warn her. He comes and he comes fast. His anger stoked. His rage increased. If she doesn’t listen. Tomorrow, she’ll too be dead. He knows her every movement. He knows where her head lays. Please! They shout from within the void. Stop her from going home! He’s there. He’s there. They shout and scream. The cards, they never lie.
