Once upon a time...
One day, the girl met a man. He was attractive, nice, funny and didn't speak English like it was a second language.
They made each other happy. Yes, the couple fought, but each time they made up the sex was even better.
The couple travelled the world together ending up on all kinds of misadventures. Once they had satisfied their wander lust, they settled down in the girl's home town in a little cottage and had two happy and healthy kids.
The man was the first to pass away, which broke her heart.
But she lived on for several more decades, surrounded by friends and family and always writing. She passed away aged one-hundred-and-ten.
Her books are studied in high-schools and universities for hundreds of years.
