I am a firm believer in fate. I always felt that some things in life are predetermined by the gods, and so I often visited a local temple for divination lots.
Divination lots tell me about my future
They are a kind of paper with a random number on it, and depending on what the lot says, it can tell me my fate in certain aspects of my life.
One day, I visited the temple and asked the fortune teller to give me a divination lot for love. I was single and eager to find true love, so I was hoping that the lot would tell me when I could expect to meet the right person.
To my surprise, the fortune teller said the lot was a good one and that I should expect to meet the right person within a month.
I was so excited that I ran home to tell my friends. They were all very happy for me and they said they could not wait to meet my future partner.
I was filled with hope and eagerly awaited the day when I could finally find true love.
However I am still single
A month passed and I started to worry. I had not met anyone and I was starting to think that maybe the divination lot was wrong.
I returned to the temple and asked the fortune tller what had gone wrong. He told me that sometimes the gods do not always give us the answers we want, and that I should not be so disappointed.
I was heartbroken and I could not believe that my dream of finding true love had been shattered. I felt like I was cursed and that I was doomed to be alone.
I returned home and tried to forget about it, but it was too late. I was still single and my dreams of love had been crushed.
I eventually gave up and resigned myself to a life of loneliness. I had lost all hope of finding love and all faith in divination lots.
I had trusted the temple and the gods, but they had failed me.
Now I understand that sometimes fate is not as kind as we would like it to be.
