○ The Girl And The Sailor
A ship sank in a Storm. Five survivors scrambled aboard two lifeboats:
a sailor, a girl, and an old man in one boat; the girl’s fiancé and his best friend in the second.
That evening the storm continued, and the two boats separated.
The one with the sailor, the girl, and the old man washed ashore on an island and was wrecked.
The next day the weather cleared, and still the girl could not locate her fiancé.
In the distance she saw another island.
Hoping to find her fiancé, she begged the sailor to repair the boat and row her to the other island.
The sailor agreed, on the condition that she slept with him that night.
Distraught, she went to the old man for advice. “I can’t tell you what’s right or wrong for you,” he said.
“Look into your heart and follow it.” Confused but desperate, she agreed to the sailor’s condition.
The next morning the sailor fixed the boat and rowed her to the other island.
Jumping out of the boat, she ran up the beach into the arms of her fiancé.
Then she decided to tell him about the previous night.
In a rage, he pushed her aside and said, “Get away from me! I don’t want to see you again!”
Weeping, she started to walk slowly down the beach.
Her fiancé’s best friend saw her and went to her, put an arm around her, and said,
“I can tell that you two have had a fight. I’ll try to patch it up, but in the meantime I’ll take care of you.”
