Solitude

The solitary days lend her into a descent toward frenzy, hungry thoughts and inhibitions; she scatters the cards clockwise, then again, picking one at random. As she lifts it, she already knows what it is. She could always feel the numbers pulsing through her head, her mind crafting what would happen before it had a chance to change.

    hm like the mind crafting what would happen before it had a chance to change.

    well-said. seems like a cliffhanger. how does the mind retroactively rewrite on what actually next occurred?
