A Fraud Can Fall In Love Too

Writing Prompt – Day 30
**If you are new to Writing Prompt Pal, click here before reading any further!**

Okay so, I have to be honest here… I was going with a different prompt today and because I’ve done quite a bit of romance lately, I decided to do sci-fi/thriller type ones recently. Today was a HORROR one and I’ll follow up with what the prompt was in just a second BUT…

I am not feeling it today. In fact, I’m a bit creeped out sitting here by myself while my kids are still sleeping, and my husband just left for work. And I will completely freak myself out if I do this one. So I’m going to do a nice fluffy one today – yes, meaning romance! – so I don’t have to be creeped! Hahaha!

If you are down for a horror one, here it is: “Strange murmuring sounds come from the door that leads to your basement.

Not super scary but my mind went to scary things, so I was def going to go horror with it haha!

Alright pals, you can either do the horror one or do the light-hearted one below! The choice is yours. (;

Have fun today. If you are doing the five days a week, today is your last day and then you get it off for the weekend. Pat yourself on the back and have an AMAZING weekend!

But FIRST, set that timer…

and GoOoOoO!

A fortune teller falls in love with their client who had their palm read every week.

My example :

I’m not a fraud so before you even think that, let me be clear. Others make a living selling complete garbage by using their fancy slogans, their strategically used ‘power words’, and their magnetic personalities to hype you up just to find out that the odds of getting something actually useful were far greater if you were to order off of Wish.com. That’s right, the hotshot salesman just scammed you. And don’t get me started on all these eye-catching ads that companies throw in our face, all while we are just trying to mind our own business scrolling through social media. Minding our own business, yeah right. Okay even I laughed at that. Of course, some companies are gems, but the majority – well it doesn’t matter because they are irresistible, right, and then guess what? You end up with garbage. Ooh, and what about the lies we are given to subscribe to a channel or enter a contract with a service provider for cell service, tv, or internet? Forgot to read the fine print, didn’t ya?

So you see…

You can’t really judge me. There’s far worse lies surrounding us so do me a favor, and let’s not get hung up on one little detail, yeah? I still stand by not being a fraud though. I like to think I’m just a person with a wild imagination and I use it to my advantage to make a living. And why am I telling you all of this?

Because now I have a problem.

For the first time ever, I am starting to feel guilty. GUILTY!

Did I forget to mention what it is I do? Yeah… I read palms for a living. Super cool job, but the thing is, I can’t read shit looking at a bunch of swirly, squiggly, jagged lines on your hand. I do a few “Ohmmm’s” before I start my reading, with my candles lit, soft music in the background, crystals in a gorgeous bowl where I have the client place their hand facing palm-up. It’s a mix of meditation mixed with psychic mixed with palm reading. I wasn’t sure how to do it so I threw in all the tricks and now I’m one of the most highly recommended palm readers in my county!

So what’s my secret? Well of course I look at their social media! Do you think I would have a job otherwise?! I have them book in advance, I do an intense research session on them with some take-out and cheap wine, and I dig deep to find out what their greatest dreams and fears are. I use them to my advantage, tell the client what they want to hear, and watch my bank account grow. It’s actually really fun. It’s unbelievable how much you can find out about a person and their dirty little secrets by simply scrolling through their Facebook.

Okay, it does sound bad. And that’s why I said I feel guilty, but what am I supposed to do about it now? I’m actually good at what I do – if you take out the psychic ability you are supposed to have. But, that’s not the real problem. I could get past the guilt and continue on with my ohm’ing and crystals, but…

The real problem?

I think I’m in love.

Yes, that’s right. In love! With a client out of all people. Who sees me every week! And what makes it even worse…

He has NO social media accounts! None, nada, zilch. So you know what that means?

I’ve just adopted the motto fake it til’ you make it and hope for the best. But really, I don’t have a real clue what I’m doing with him or if I’m even remotely close to the truths in his life. I swear my palms get so sweaty and my heart races like I just won a horse-race bet of a million dollars. I literally know nothing about him besides his dreamy eyes, his smooth smile, his soft skin.

What am I going to do?

Wait, no time to think of it…

He’s walking in for his appointment now. But something seems… different?

Do you think he knows the truth?

Even if he does, even if he busted me, I would still want him you know. Could you get in trouble for faking palm reading? I’m thinking yes. Some very intimidating officers are walking in behind him.

Hmm… maybe playing this cat and mouse game with him could be fun? Maybe sexy even?

But for now, I have to work my magic before I get arrested. I can’t chase him if I’m behind bars now can I?


Haha I don’t know why but I like this girl. She’s spicy and funny to me. I loved doing this prompt, it was alot of fun! I hope you had fun and I hope you have a great weekend! My five-dayers, see you Monday!

How’d you do pals?!
