  3. I did a reading for someone. The first question was "How does he feel for his gf?" I got the 9 of swords and then asked "Why is he with her?" I drew the King of Cups. It doesn't make sense to me. The only thing I'm thinking is that he feels miserable in the relationship. I know he's cheating on her but why is he still with her?
