60-second story 8-14-16

“The Hermit card in the tarot deck means you are alone, but you must try not to be lonely,” the fortune teller placed the card at the top of the array of cards in front of her.
“Yeah, well, the Hermit card is full of crap, and so are you” Ally snapped. “Because I am lonely and freakin’ tired of it. You’re the fortuneteller. So, tell my fortune. When the hell is he going to show up?”
Madam Maria pursed her lips in thought for a long moment, and then her eyes flashed.
“Not for a while,” she said without drawing another card. “Not for a very long while.”

Prompt word: alone
