The Forecast calls for Death

Ivy was afraid of number 4.

Sometimes she dreamed about it: distant figures whispering its name in warning.

She was certain her death would involve 4 somehow.

She stopped leaving home, afraid she'd come across a rogue number 4 bus, a murderous four-year-old, or slip on four carelessly dropped tetrafish.

When April rolled around, Ivy waited in agony for the fourth, certain that was the day forecast for her demise.

It came and went.

Feeling foolish, and yet relieved, Ivy finally walked outside. It'd been months since she'd felt fresh air.

It's unfortunate how quickly golf courses pop up nowadays.

Fantastic job, Tibbi! I love what you've done, again. I'm guessing that means you enjoyed my groaner of an ending, huh?

Or as it's pronounced in some parts of the world, "Shi!"

I'd read at some point that the Chinese and Japanese think the number 4 is unlucky because its name shi is in shini, which means death.

EDIT: Which, now that I click on the link I missed, is exactly what you were alluding to. Awesome.

Oh yes, did I forget to thank you? I've listened to it numerous times and even showed it off I liked it so much. Thanks Tibbi. You have a wonderful voice.
