Darren sniggered behind his hands as Madame Zabor peered intently into the cup.
“I see death” she warned, a crooked finger stabbed towards him. “Heed my warning” she continued “the fates have spoken.”
He sniggered before bursting into howls of laughter.
“I’m sorry” he said, quite obviously not, “this is ridiculous.”
“Change your ways” she warned as he continued mocking.
“Come on” he said, “what you gonna do, turn me into a toad?”
Darren doubled up laughing and started to speak but his words were cut short as her hands clamped tightly around his throat.
“Fate has spoken boy” she grinned.
