The sound of a match striking broke the silence in the darkened room. Its little flame dimly illuminated the faces of three women who sat around a circular rosewood table. The woman holding the match moved it to the wicks of two black candles on the table. As they took the fire from the match, the room brightened. The woman shook the match and placed its stub in a small white saucer with the pattern of a five-pointed star emblazoned on it. Then she placed her wrinkled hands flat on the table.
"Have you brought something she has sent to you?" she asked.
The woman across from her, whose face was still strikingly beautiful even though she had reached middle age, held out a folded card with a cartoon character printed on it.
