Synopsis

Gypsy-girl Rachel predicts the number three will be important for Lucy, both good and bad. So Rachel picks the third boy to dance with—Tony. She then becomes obsessed with threes, and has a nightmare in which Tony is attacked. When they meet the next day at bus stop three, Lucy's panic causes Tony to move, just before a bus hits the sign he was leaning on. Tony admits that the gypsy curse was a stunt to meet Lucy and the girl is his sister.
