First I must apologise for repeating part of the story in Chapter 2. This was my fault and not the editors'. When they got the story it was all in one piece. I divided it to make it easier for people with limited time. This should now have been corrected.
A big thank you to all the people who have voted for this story. I took the inspiration from two things, An add on a "No Strings Attached" web site and a joke my wife and I shared "I'll be a millionaire by the time I'm thirty. Of course, I never was. I started to think about possible outcomes if she thought I was deadly serious.
Since the inspiring add is still there, I guess it was a con but who knows maybe it worked out well for her.
