It was one sunny Tuesday when my husband came across this antique pendant. While I was waiting for him at the car, he surprised me with a big smile handling the pendant he picked at the middle of the road. He told me to keep it as we might get luck from it. I threw it inside my coin purse and we went home. While heading on our way to a grocery store, I asked J if we are going to buy a car seat for MKJ. He answered me laughing and said, “Kung gusto mo isang dosena pa.” I wondered why he answered me like that and thought of him giving nonsense jokes. Before going to the grocery store, we first went to a lotto outlet. J asked me for six numbers and before paying, he asked me to give him the pendant. He rubbed it and whispered words. The next day, J checked on the winning lotto and I found out that the pendant isn’t lucky.
One Thursday Morning J’s mobile phone beeped. And because I was near to reach the phone, I grab it and look after the message. But J immediately grabbed it from me and told me not to open the message. I gave him an anxious look. Before reading the message, J rubbed and whispered words again on the pendant. After reading the message, a dismayed look flashed on his face. He did not get the car deal. For the second time, the pendant isn’t really lucky. Or FATE might have been to us.
|the not-so-lucky pendant haha.|
