Friday Fictioneers: Creating Happiness

Jacob and Mary were both artists; she a painter, he a sculptor. They met in her studio and the attraction was immediate. Mary introduced Jacob to all her artist friends and together they went to gallery openings and dinners at out-door cafés. Mary thought they were happy.

And so, they married.

They bought a house in the country and enjoyed young married life with picnics and walks in the woods. Jacob thought they were happy.

When Jacob and Mary split, Mary moved back downtown and Jacob kept their home in the country.

They thought they were happy.
