Walking down a dark street one night, I ran into fate. Bumping into his shoulder I startled myself and stuttered, “I’m sorry, it was an accident,” not lifting my eyes from the ground, I continued walking. “I don’t believe in such a thing,” he chuckled. The tone in his voice sent a shiver down my spine, and I turned to see him grin, blowing cigarette smoke through his teeth. I turned back around to see a bus pass by in the exact spot in the road I would have been had I not paused to look back at fate. I turned around once more to find him gone, with nothing but spirals of his smoke dissipating into the night.
