She nodded in agreement. “As long as you do your part to help the balance, I’m sure it will be. Now…you wanted to ask one more question?”

Devin smiled gratefully. “I think you answered everything with that last set.” he chuckled, scratching the back of his neck. “Thank you again for your time. It was very insightful! Maybe we’ll meet again, next time Nat and I c—”

"Devin! Hey, bud, where’d you go?" A voice called from outside, interrupting Devin’s train of though. It was Natasha, her voice muffled as if she had something in her mouth—probably a giant pretzel or something of that nature.

"There she is now." he pointed a thumb towards the exit. "I should probably get going. But thanks again, madame, it was a pleasure." He nodded to her politely on his way out.

Everything Velvetine said was rather comforting, and coincided well with what was on Devin’s mind. Change was something they had been thinking about a lot lately; making changes to the shop, making it more inviting for their customers, paying more attention to enjoying their work rather than staying so busy that they drove themselves mad.

In the end, though, it was good to know that him and Natasha were doing well, personally at least. They bumped heads sometime, but it was nothing they couldn’t work out. The problem was their conflicting personalities. Devin was a very calm, mild-mannered person, whereas Natasha was more dramatic, more energetic, more aggressive. They had good balance though, and that was the important part.

"Thank you for that." Devin said, looking down at the cards with a smile. "It’s good to know, really. Here I’ve been worried about our friendship, but I think what you’re saying is true. We can work together, balance one another out, and make everything fine."

She nodded in agreement. “As long as you do your part to help the balance, I’m sure it will be. Now…you wanted to ask one more question?”

"You may, unless you’d like to hear the rest of your relationship reading first," she answered with a smile. She had already placed her hand at the top of the deck, preparing to draw the next card.

"Oh, there’s more?" Devin was clearly inexperienced at this sort of thing. "Please, go on, sorry to interrupt you. Heh, I guess I’m a little hasty today. Sorry, it’s the nerves." he folded his hands in his lap, sitting more patiently now. "What else do they say?" his eyes glanced down at the cards, then up to Velvetine’s face again.

Velvetine simply smiled before glancing back down at her cards. She placed down the Four and Ten of Wands.

"Well, it seems for the most part, your needs are met, but you seem to be a bit more busy than need be. It would do the both of you some good to sprinkle some more relaxation into your lives. Though since you’re already here, I take it that this will hardly be a problem…"

She brought out the Queen of Wands.

"A woman with a firey energy. How interesting. Seems this partnership, this relationship, is the precise reason why your business is currently doing well. It’s a very good sign. But let’s see now…"

She flipped over two new cards: The Fool and the Tower.

"How interesting…these two are supposed to represent the path you and your friend wish to take. The Fool is to represent beginnings, while the Tower represents change. Perhaps, in a way, you both want some form of change. Though I must tell you…it’s rather fortunate and intriguing that the both of you share such similar thoughts. I suppose it would be up to you and your friend as to what that change might be."

She flipped over the Seven of Wands in reverse.

"…hmm…this seems to coincide with that need for change. This card is supposed to represent an aspect of your relationship than you need to consider. In reverse, the Seven of Wands generally warns against waiting too long to make a decision, otherwise the decision may not be made at all, or the opportunity to do so will be lost. But in the end…"

The final card,Temperance, was flipped in reverse position.

"…your relationship will be just fine. Just try to keep that sense of balance, not only in terms of your relationship with your friend, but within yourself as well."

The fortune teller was being patient with Devin—that was a relief. He sighed happily, again sitting on the edge of his seat as he watched her hands work on shuffling the cards before drawing.

When she mentioned ‘restless’, Devin laughed. “It’s like you know her.” he said. Natasha had always been an active type, constantly moving and keeping busy, meeting people, getting herself involved in as much as she could. It was like she was afraid of being bored.

The last one made him nod as well. He liked to think that he was balanced, and the belief in karma was definitely a spot-on prediction. “Wow.” he said simply. “That’s…that’s really impressive. May I ask one more question?”

"You may, unless you’d like to hear the rest of your relationship reading first," she answered with a smile. She had already placed her hand at the top of the deck, preparing to draw the next card.

That was a difficult decision to make; both of those sounded like things that Devin would like to ask, so he just decided to start with the first. “Just about her and I, really. How our friendship will keep developing, if we’ve got good or bad times ahead of us…that sort of thing.” he said. “Heh, sorry, I’m very new to this. I’ve never had a reading like this before.”

Velvetine offered a friendly giggle. “It’s alright. Not many people know what to do or say their first time around. It’s perfectly natural. Now let’s see…relationships…”

She set forth the first card, the Eight of Wands in reverse.

"So you may see your friend as a bit restless, perhaps? Maybe patience is needed. And as for how she sees you…"

She flips over the Justice card. She couldn’t help but giggle a bit.

"A strong believer of karma. A very much balanced person," she continued.
