I wrote this for the second volume of the Machine of Death anthology. Since they were asking for more genres than just science fiction, I tried my hand at doing a fantasy version of the premise, which is that there is a device that can tell you how you will die from a drop of your blood. The only rules were that it has be a drop of your blood, the prediction is always right, and it’s always the same for the individual person.
The Death Card
This started as a writing exercise in one of my fiction workshops at USF. Everyone had to bring an object to class, and our homework was to choose two objects that other people had brought and write a story about those objects. I chose to write about a Starbucks water bottle and a playing card. The inspiration for how the card worked came from my boyfriend at the time, whose friends in high school did something similar.
