“How so?”

“Everyone likes you because you’re pretty. It’s easy to get on in life. And you’ve had the breaks. I’ve never had any. I don’t get good luck. Only bad.”

She sighed. “That’s the past. We’re talking about the future.”

“It won’t change.”

“Not like that it won’t,” she muttered under her breath.

“What did you say?”

“I said you’re probably right.”
