In the opening of the story she stated‚ “Leo was from a long time ago‚ the first one I ever saw nude.” She didn’t state he was the first ever sexual encounter. The conflict was not resolved at the end; however‚ the ending was satisfying

    into that topic I am focusing on lust. I doubt that there is a better example than that of the poem “To his Coy Mistress” by Andrew Marvell.
