Thanks to Yves for setting the Monday wordle.
Our words today:
Soi-disant- ((adj.) calling oneself thus; self-styled. so-called or pretended.)
‘Cross my palm with silver,’ the soi-disant gypsy droned from beneath a black lace veil.
Any reservation Melissa had was compounded when the old crone began to precipitate her future and that she would find true love.
‘Load of old mumbo jumbo,’ she thought deciding to stay to hear what else could be ‘seen’.
‘I see a cradle under a large bumble bee,’ she continued, ‘and a lone figure up to their elbows in soapy water.’
Had Melissa been walking, she would have skid to a halt. Nobody knew she was pregnant, nor that she had just bought an overhead cot mobile with bees on it.
‘Got your attention now dearie, haven’t I!’ the old woman cackled.
