The Truth

If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about any one thing about yourself, life, the future, or anything else, what would you want to know, and why?

Me I don’t like prophecy or crystal balls. The idea that something can know something to be absolute truth is off beat. Nothing can know, and by knowing it changes things.

Seeing the future changes how you react. Even if it’s a good future, knowing will change it. That is the essence of knowing. It’s not just some myth that the Christians came up with when Adam and Eve gain knowledge from the tree of knowledge. It’s human nature, the nature of all living sentient beings in my opinion.

I don’t want to know anything. But because I made Alex and Hunter a promise, I’d have to ask something I’d guess. But what is most important to know. Will I lose Alex? That’s really the only question that really matters to me. Will there ever be a time where one of us exists without the other in the future, no matter how far out it is it will hurt to know that one day one of us will be gone – or both gone from our lives.

I don’t even want to think about it. It breaks me just thinking about some far off future without him. No, I can’t ask that and know it as a truth. Will my kids live a happy life? But if the answer is no, and it’s a truth does anything I affect that outcome.

See why I don’t like these things?

  1. :lol: As soon as I read the question, I knew that Nox would not like it.

    As for myself, I don’t believe in going to fortune tellers. But even if I did, I honestly don’t know what I’d want to ask. Maybe it’s a lack of imagination or just a profound lack of curiosity. Who knows?

    I do know that if Elsie and Hildreth were to go to a fortune teller, they would want to know if either of them will ever be changed into a vampire and/or killed while hunting. If the answer is yes, I can just see Hildreth getting hopelessly lost in his thoughts while Elsie demands to know all of the details. She would want to know if this future could be changed by anything they say or do.

      1. Hmm. Is it okay if I want to write a one shot story about Elsie and Hildreth going to a fortune teller? Problem is, the fortune teller’s answer might be a huge spoiler for a future event. Unless she keeps it really vague. :/ Hmm.
