"I thought ... well, I thought the cards don't lie," the client whispered, tense, pointing to the placard in the corner that proudly proclaimed: "The Cards Don't Lie". "They don't, dear," Lady Mystery responded with a smile (as she read the new formation), "but, sometimes, they underachieve and need a swift kick in the ass." The client disguised a tiny laugh as a cough, thinking it a poor idea to laugh openly at Fate.
