In the Moment of Karl and Inga’s Courtship

Once upon a time there was a deep sea diver named Karl. Karl’s job was to weld all the pipes for the oil company to make sure there weren’t any leaks. Karl’s job was very important. Sometimes he would be down under the sea for hours on end. Karl didn’t mind though; he loved being under the sea. Man, if he had his choice he would live down there forever.

Sometimes when the pipes were holding up well, and leakage was at a minimum, there wasn’t a lot for Karl to do down there; but he still liked to dive just in case. After all, it was his job. On days like that, Karl would take the opportunity to take a look around the ocean floor. The marine life fascinated him.

He particularly liked it when he found a clam. He always made sure he checked the clam for pearls. Occasionally he found one laying there nestled in the soft muscle. His discovery was always met with a burst of excitement followed by a quick ante-climax as the realisation came to him that in his tight fitting wet suit he had nowhere to store his found treasure to safely transport it back to the surface. He had no choice but to take the pearl in his mouth. Even though it was unusual he liked the taste of the Pearl in his mouth. Sometimes searching for a Pearl was a little suffocating but he grinned and bore it because he knew the pleasure and self satisfaction he would experience from safely getting this treasure to the surface would be more than reward in itself.

He would store the new addition to his collection with all the others in a heart shaped box with his sweetheart’s name on top, Inga. Karl loved Inga very much. He looked forward to the day when he would have finally collected enough pearls to give Inga a pearl necklace. Karl was also a master craftsman, he enjoyed making things with his hands. He could not wait to fashion a pearl necklace with his own hands.

Finally the day came when Karl had enough pearls. He started to make a necklace for Inga. His hands working slowly at first sliding back and forth making sure to place each pearl just so, and as his confidence grew his hands knew what to do by themselves; he started to work much faster.

Before he knew it he had finished making the necklace and had given it to Inga. He sat there looking at the glistening master piece sitting snugly around her neck. Inga ran her hand along the necklace and gently kissed Karl on the lips, thinking to herself ‘diamonds are forever, but pearls are definitely more fun.’

That my friends is a moment in the Karl and Inga’s courtship story.
