Chapter 21:- Insight
Eyes narrowed, the waiter reassessed Stephen. Then, with a smirk, he poured him some tea. "That is correct. You've remarkable insight, sir."

"I'm, uh... right?" The unexpected reply took Stephen off guard.
"It seems you have a great affinity with our restaurant," the waiter said.

The waiter went to pour Danny's tea, but was stopped. "My friend has affinity with this place?" the boy asked.
"Him and you," he responded.
Chapter 24:- Danger I
Danny glared. "I know my own. But my friend has no dealings with the paranormal." He'd be damned to let Stephen get involved. Too dangerous.
Chapter 25:- Not real?
"Wait, wait!" Stephen held up his hands. "I know people believed lots of stuff in the past, but fortune telling isn't actually real, right?"
Chapter 26:- Baffled
The silent confirmation meeting Stephen, baffled him. "You guys are serious about the fortune teller? He could actually predict the future?"
Chapter 27:- Too late
Ignoring his friend, Danny repeated, "He has no dealings with the paranormal."
"Too late," the waiter replied. "You cannot change destiny."
Chapter 28:- Foretold
"What destiny do you speak of?"
The waiter simply left to bring them a plate of fortune cookies. "Take one. Your fates have been foretold."
Chapter 29:- Two cookies
Danny took one cookie from the plate, leaving the other to Stephen. They simultaneously broke the snack open and took out the slip of paper.
Chapter 30:- Two fates
"Well?" the waiter said.
"Beware of death." Danny frowned.
"What a morbid fortune," Stephen laughed, "Mine says: Welcome into our family."
