The Servant and the Soothsayer
by Eugene Fairfield
Paulo, a domestic servant with a reputation for back-talk, is witness to a murder. When a soothsayer, a psychic investigator, is brought in to solve the crime, she wants Paulo to help her. But if he does, he may get blacklisted and lose his job and home. He will be in worse danger from her: soothsayers can cause terrible psychic damage, and this one, people say, has something of a temper.
