Could We Live Here?

I want to live here. I am so in love with this island and its beautiful ancient buildings. I'll fast, pray, be chaste and silent, anything; just please let me remain here. When I visited in 1982, three of us get left behind by the tour boat. One young lady was terrified, the young man rather tittilated at the prospect of spending the night with two attractive girls, and I was overjoyed at the possibility of having the island (almost) to myself for hours. When the boat finally returned for us, she wes elated, he was relieved (let's be practical, after all), and I was so disappointed. Can't I stay the night, I pleaded? I don't mind being here alone.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Now, I think I understand why people join religious orders.
  • Cons:The won't let us stay.
  • In a nutshell:I want to live the rest of my life here.
