Maribel sat frozen in shock because she couldn’t believe what her eyes were showing her. She never thought it was possible, but she was here. Finally, she turned to her mom and said, “I’ve won.” It took a moment before her brain could process what had happened. Clearly, she didn’t expect that when she’d headed to the casino earlier in the day.
When her legs stopped shaking, Maribel went to claim her prize. She knew it could turn her life around, but not in the way she expected. In fact, she was already dreaming of what she might buy with this newfound fortune when an attendant stopped her.
Just a Normal Woman
Maribel Sanchez wasn’t a fan of gambling and didn’t make enough money to do such frivolous things. Plus, she didn’t feel she was lucky. However, that all changed when her mother asked her to go to Newcastle Casino. She became fortunate, but her luck disappeared!
A shiver went down Maribel’s spine when she entered the casino initially. However, she didn’t pay attention to that ominous feeling, and she wished she had when everything was done. In fact, she almost wanted to go back in time and tell her mother no.
