They said it would take a few months, then a year, and suddenly, it had been two years. Still, COVID-19 continued to surge.

Laid off from his job, Samuel retreated to his grandfather’s cottage by the lake to weather the storm the pandemic had wrought.

Samuel found it liberating to breathe the free air again without the mask on. He wished that he had wings like an eagle, too, so he could fly away from all of this.

At the same time, Samuel realized it was too much to ask. He and his paddleboard would do fine for now.

“Make hay while the sun shines,” her grandpa would say, but Brie loved to procrastinate. She had this attitude that things had a way of taking care of themselves.

The only exception was on her wedding day. Brie was in church at 7:00 a.m. en ponto. As the last remaining single among her friends, it was a trip that she couldn’t miss.

In her grandpa’s eyes, Brie was the most beautiful bride in the world. He hoped she wouldn’t postpone having kids so he could enjoy them while he was still alive and kicking. For that, wish grandpa good luck.

It was a lovely spot by the river that reminded him of the paradise that they lost after eating the forbidden fruit.

Adam went there to keep his sanity. As you know, Eve could be too clingy like the forebear of the koala. Could you blame him if he felt like she was still a rib that hadn’t left his side?

This was one of those times. Adam hid under a tree for his much-needed space and fell asleep. Unfortunately, Eve found him soon enough betrayed by his distinctive snoring style. She gave him an earful that he wouldn’t forget.

The first time he saw her, Connor just knew. Despite the differences in their upbringing, he felt that Laila was the one.

Connor pursued her with all his heart, but she remained cold as ice. He found that Laila was like a fruit up so high that the only way to claim it was to cut down the tree that brought it forth.

When Laila turned him down, however, he didn’t have the heart to force her to break away from the tradition and culture that defined her.

Laila would eventually become the woman he loved and could never have.

Donald was chiseled to perfection and worked at a strip club where he earned big tips from the ladies.

On his free time, he loved to hang loose on the beach and take selfies and post them on the internet. Flaunting his masculinity, he usually wore a pair of baggy shorts with no underwear underneath. It was a gravity-defying feat that he was able to get away with.

His luck eventually ran out when he went to a newly-opened beach. Donald was cited and fined for dressing inappropriately which was against the rules. It was a nudist beach after all.
