"Would this kid be the Chosen One who walked in with you? If it is he'll make your life interesting. You! Boy! Get over here!
The two of them chat for a moment and Bjudr gets back to you.
"Okay without seeing the original here's what I can tell you. This boys is what we in the prophecy bidness call a 'Chosen One', which is a polite way of saying the Gawds above have decided to fuck up his life in some way. It's an old, old prophecy so it's written from the point of view of a society that's no longer about, which may complicate things. Their definition of abomination and witchcraft may not be the same as the modern ones, or it could just be they liked to indulge in hyperbole. That he hasn't been given access to the scroll may also imply you have a problem with what we like to call an 'Adversary'. Adversaries usually are linked to the prophecy, or stand to benefit from it somehow. They'll try to manipulate events in such a way that the prophecy fails, or so that they get some goal accomplished. The first one is impossible. If it says this kid will kill something and then be married, it's gonna happen one way or the other, it just might not take the form he or anyone else anticipates. For example if he's killed someone who assumes his identity could fulfill the prophecy. People can try getting rich or something of the prophecy though, so he'll need people to look after him and try to make sure things don't go too badly. Plus you may be able to influence things so that the prophecy is technically fulfilled in a way that helps him out. Try visiting the temple of Mimi on the Street of the Gawds. They keep records on prophecies so they can maybe help."
