    I believe the term is Foreshadowing:


    • Author hints of what will happen later in the story

      Creates suspense

      Hidden clue

      Usually the reader doesn't realize until later that the author was foreshadowing an event to happen

    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
