Writers of the Future XXIV
Catia and her grandmother read fortunes through the birds they keep, actually seeing into the future. The grandmother read her daughter’s fortune and tries to prevent her daugther from seeing any army officer from asking the future, but the officer arrives and demands. In her haste and effort to see what she wants to see, she gives the officer only a limited vision, which brings the officer back, ready to destroy all she and her family have.
Resonant theme and Catia’s a dynamic character.
