Locals say she hasn’t left the tiny island in decades. I have no idea why she has agreed to allow me to interview her today. I am thrilled to be able to write a front-page article for the first time. My editor said as long as I dig up some juicy details, I am guaranteed the top story.
I did my research before arriving at this lovely spot. It seems she was left standing at the alter forty years ago. Devastated, she retreated to her family’s summer castle. I am curious to find out if the self-imposed solitude had caused her to become a bitter old crow or a quiet contemplative matron.
Hopefully, since she decided to speak to me, she will share what her solitary life has been like. In my mind, I will write a Pulitzer Prize worthy essay. We shall see.
