A perfect story, one that could be called as a "fairy tale", one that could be read to children lying inside a bed. "If such a story could happen, then the reality must be a pretty good place." A story which gives out hopes to people.
The thread that was tying that fairy tale was the depiction of the "Great old man"
showing affection to a somewhat miserable girl. And through his affection, that girl realized her inner strength.
But what was not depicted in that story was how that Great old man has lived his life. Was he really a good man?
One must always examine the true nature of the human soul.
But then the miserable girl noticed. The fact that the good old man was not a fairy tale material, made the story even more beautiful. It was a fairy tale adopted inside reality.
