Fandango Flash Fiction
Terry had a remarkable ability. He could at times, predict what was going to happen. Not to him personally but events of importance around the world. He predicted that there would be a stock market crash before it happened and about the earthquake that destroyed a mega city in Japan.
Gradually his reputation grew and people started to recognize his power to see the future. Since this happened a long time before social media and the internet became popular, most of the stories about him were published in newspapers and there would be a mention on tv.
But he was actually not very helpful in avoiding any mishaps as there was no way he could do it at will. The premonitions would come to him randomly and out of the blue. Sometimes a few months before and sometimes a few hours before the “event”. Scientists tried to study his brain but it was just like any other brain. During one of the studies, Terry predicts his own death, and that day due to a fault in the sensors attached to his skull, a massive electric charge was given to him.
Terry survived the shock but lost the gift of seeing the future.
Just sometimes he would get a sense of déjà vu!
