Everytime Y travels somewhere or takes on an important task, it rains heavily. And each and everytime this happens, he’ll say: “Do you believe it now? My mother came to believe it because it just always happens.” Came to believe what? Read on and I’ll tell you the answer.
When Y is still little, he repeatedly has one dream: “In my dream I see snakes. Lots of them.” He has this dream so often that he decides to go to a Chinese fortune teller (算命 suàn mìng). The fortune teller asks him: “Are the snakes small or big?” Y replies: “They are huge.” The fortune teller says: “These aren’t snakes. These are dragons. You have the destiny of a dragon. That’s why everytime you travel or take on an important task, it rains. Rain is connected with a dragon’s fate.”
Y is not usually someone to believe in such things, but this one is an exception. It sure does rain a lot whenever we travel somewhere (now I really don’t want to blame the floodings after our wedding on Y, but you never know). Whatever the reasons for the rain, we make sure to take an umbrella with us whenever we travel.
P.S.: My husband hasn’t been born in the year of the dragon, so what the fortune teller told him doesn’t seem to be directly connected to his Chinese zodiac.
Have you ever been to a fortune teller? What was it like? I’d love to read your stories.
