FIRST SUMMARY: The Urban Legend is about a group of friends who go see a psychic. The psychic tells everyone their future except for one girl. She writes it down and the girl is upset but promises not to read it until she gets home. In the car, she falls asleep and they make a turn and she falls out, dying. The note says that she has no future.

SECOND SUMMARY: A girl and a group of friends decided to visit a psychic, and I think she was the last to go. When she entered the room alone with the psychic, the psychic got a terrible headache and started going crazy or something. She then began to write something on a note, and handed it folded to the girl. The psychic then tells her not to open it until she was home. The girl continues to say how she couldn't wait to get home with her boyfriend so she can read what the note said with him. At the end of the story there is just this newspaper article about this girl who had died because she fell asleep leaning against an unlocked car door from the inside, and she had accidently opened it while sleeping and fell out and died. The article said something about her having a note in her hands saying 'NO FUTURE'.

    Is “Urban Legend” a website? Or an author? Or something else? Jan 20 at 0:14
  • Doesn't sound like science fiction or fantasy to me.

    @user14111 Psychics with actual precog powers sounds fairly fantastical to me. Jan 20 at 17:32
  • @WiggotheWookie One hit doesn't prove "actual precog powers". For example, in real life, Jeane Dixon "predicted" the Kennedy assassination. Predicting a bad outcome for a customer seems like a poor business model, but doesn't make the story "fantastical", not does having the "prediction" happen to "come true".

Could it be this "No Future" by PrincessAvatarRose?

She had just pulled out into the fast lane on the highway when a semi-truck swerved to miss a careless sedan that pulled into the lane right in front of it. She had a single glimpse of a massive shape coming toward her when the truck slammed into her car, crushing it completely against the cement divider.

When the girl's body was removed from the wreckage, the envelope was found lying beside her. It was presented to her grieving parents, who opened it. The note inside contained four words: "You have no future."

It wouldn't surprise me if this is an older story than that, and this is just one of the reproductions. Is there a particular version you're looking for?

    See, that's one mean psychic. They knew that she would die and would never read the note, but they had to mock her anyway.

  • Or it's a Cassandra kind of situation where they have to tell the truth, but no one ever believes them.
