Anyone starting to poke around in the dark yet? Trying to find a connection or reference between 'a man without a face' and 'an old riverbank'? My first association would be Egypt and pharaos (no face?), so maybe Cairo?? Or am I getting ahead of myself already?  :P

Hello,

I am late to the party and I have just sent in my minor card and am awaiting a reply.  I have been keeping up with the posted readings though.

Looking forward to more!

Woke up to a new e-mail:

*******

After leaving the coffee shop I made my way to the bookstore where Natasha had sent one of her bodyguards to buy a pack of tarot cards. It occurred to me that he left and returned so quickly that she must have known about the place beforehand. I was curious enough to do some poking around.

It was a small bookstore, not one of the big chains, and I noticed right away a large picture book on the front table filled with photographs. It was called, "Ancient Cities, Ancient Rivers." I picked it up and began perusing it when I heard someone clear their throat behind me.

"What can I do for you?" I whirled around and came face to face with a woman who at first glance seemed quite old. She had pure white hair and deeply lined skin, and she was small and slight and a little hunched over. But as I looked at her more closely I saw the muscle tone under her skin and the way she moved with confidence and strength, and also the glow in her eyes. She was either much younger or much older than she appeared.

"Someone was in here just a short time ago, to purchase a tarot deck?" I held up the deck.

"I'm sorry, I don't give refunds."

I shook my head. "No need for a refund. I was just wondering if you noticed anything strange about the transaction."

"Strange? No, not really. Well, there might have been one thing."

"What? Anything at all."

"Well, this probably doesn't mean a thing, but the man who bought the tarot deck was here yesterday as well, along with a young woman who looked oddly familiar. But I didn't say anything to her because there is no way someone like that would be here. I must have been mistaken about her so I kept my thoughts to myself."

"Mistaken as to her identity."

"Yes, she looked like someone famous."

I nodded. "Did anything else unusual happen?"

"No, she just looked through the books on the front table there and asked the man she was with, the one who came back for the tarot deck, where they should go next."

"And what did he say?"

"He just told her they should go wherever fortune takes them."

"And what did the woman say?"

"She looked confused at first but then she smiled and nodded and said that of course they would go where fortune takes them. Why hadn't she thought of that sooner?"

I smiled said, "Thank you, that was actually very helpful."

* * *

Shortly after that I went back to my hotel on foot and grabbed my bag. I always travel very lightly with just a single backpack. I grabbed it and headed to the embassy, where a friend of mine works. He game me some documents and currency and by the end of the day I was on an airplane. I'll let you know when I'm settled at my new destination.

Your first task after you choose a card from the minor arcana and receive your reading is to choose a card from the major arcana which will serve a role in this mission. You may NOT choose the Fool card, but all other cards are open. However, it will be first come, first serve, so please choose three major arcana cards and list them in order of preference.  I will try to give you your first choice unless it is already taken.

Choose carefully. You will work with this card for quite a while.

Thank you and all my best,
Winter
