Glen was excited as well as agitated, looking at the newspaper he thought to himself, ‘why would anyone steal something precious to mankind?’ ("Stolen: Photograph of oil painting entitled 'Boerenhoeve'", 1998). The newspaper explained that a famous painting was stolen last night from the city museum. As Glen arrived at the port in his SUV, looking towards the cruise that will take him to the long journey of 2 weeks along the Pacific, starting from Polynesia to Asia, Africa and then back to Polynesia (Hansen, 2015). His assistants took care of his language and made sure that it reaches to the sweet he booked. Glen stepped toward his new journey, visiting new places, meeting new people and looking for an adventure. Glen was the medium built man with dark hair and the hazelnut eyes. He uses to carry his traveling journal, an antique camera given to him by his father, his high-tech mobile phone that he might keep off during his holidays just to stay away from his work ("Altertum (Antique)", 2008). The cruise sets sail, with the first light in a day with 200 passengers heading towards Asia (Leebron, 1994). At the table, he was writing about the first day of cruise. After breakfast, he planned to walk around the cruise. People were enjoying the sun and the pool. But all of this joy, someone is arguing with a waiter upon her bill. When Glen overheard that, he intertwined and asked the waiter about the issue. The waiter explained that the lady in black is not willing to pay her bill for the drink she just bought. With anger, she in black shouted at the waiter, “this is not the appropriate cheque, as I paid the amount before boarding the cruise. Glen looked into walnut eyes full of anger, but serene. He was mesmerized by her wide eyes. He told the waiter that he would pay the bill and ask him to leave. To this, the lady got twitchy and walked away.
In the evening, cruise halted at a port in Asia, where the passengers were allowed to have some quality time in that area. Glen visited a art museum nearby as he was fond of paintings ("New Painting Galleries", 1940). When he was staring at one canvas, a voice from his behind said, “This painting is too bright.” Glen turned around looking towards the same lady in black. He smiled and explained, “What I know is that the artist was trying to keep the dark scene, as he was focusing on the stars.” After discussing for a while, both were comfortable in each other’s company. They went to drink a coffee at a nearby cafe, where the lady introduces herself as Caroline. Glen asked Caroline if she likes to travel, she denies, saying that, “I am more of an alone, person, but have to voyage due to trading basis”. Glen explained his father is a business man, and following his footsteps. But for now, he is on holidays. On the way back to the cruise, he took pictures of the surrounding area. Caroline regrets for her behavior previously to which Glen replied, “We have just met, and I will forgive you, but have a dinner with me.” In the following days, they spend most of the time together and talking about their interests, hobbies. They developed a romantic relationship. He used to wish her a good morning, with white orchids, and she, with a good night kiss. It’s been a week now, and they come closer in every moment they spend with each other. A cruise was about to reach the Africa, and Caroline started, creating distance between her and Glen. The day when the cruise was going to arrive at African port, Glen went to Caroline’s room in the morning to look out for her, but she was not in her room. Her bag was pack, and Glen saw a roughly crammed frame lying on the floor. When he picked it up, he saw that it was the same painting he read about in the newspaper. He was confused, why this painting is in Caroline’s room. “What are you doing in my room?” Caroline shouted at him, pushing him away from the painting. He asked about the canvas. Caroline said, “I am a thief, but I am also started loving you, and you are standing between me and my work.” She explained that she was working for a man named, Mr. Philip, who smuggled artifacts around the world (Cartographic Artifacts, 1990). But now she is confused, with her illicit work. To this, Glen confesses her love for her and tell her to surrender as he knows the best lawyer who can fight her case. They both knew that they will be together once it is all done.
