Prey to unworldliness

When I was twelve, I traveled with my grandma on a cruise ship. It was a very special trip around the Mediterranean. On the first day we were seated at a table with another old lady my grandma’s age. She was definitely wealthy with a fine and fragile stature, well dressed and manicured. Her hair was intricately styled. But even more striking, she was extremely upset. Her face disgruntled, red and some hair loosened, she massaged her hands frantically.

Without being asked the lady started telling us told her story: She fell asleep in the plane and when she woke up, her 40.000€-necklace was gone.
