My beloved, Edvard!

Hell of a road to be sinuous!

You interest me. Nothing seems

to coincide in your personality.

Sometimes I seem like

a puzzle to myself.

It's not very feminine

for a woman to play the trumpet...

Would you like to take a look at my map?

We are traveling all the way to the end of...

She wants to become a writer.

I think all art is useless.

May I also take a look at that map?

Thank God!

Now it's only three hours left

to the next delectation! Thank you.



Wait for me! I'm coming.

Gerhard Odenkrantz.

Come, let's go swimming.

My mother is always criticizing me.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Can you speak to your mother?

One can never understand ones family...

Mom is untouched by life. She

believes everyone is good. I'm a sceptic.

I don't want to be stuck in a narrow circle

Mother, refuses to understand my desire.

To her, family is almost a sacred concept.

Did you play that game when you were

Ava... I'd love it if you

would become my best friend.

I long for someone I can

talk to, about real things.

Forgive me! I almost

proposed to you...!

That was odd. But, I'd like it

if you became my best friend.

Do you promise?

Thank you.

Did Gerhard kiss you?

How does it feel to get kissed by

a man? Do you think it feels different?

I'm reading a novel

about a woman who shivers when...

...a man kisses

her neck and...

...shoulders... and her chest.

If I close my eyes and imagine

that special someone,

could I ask you to kiss me,

the way a man would have done it?

You can never kiss me like that!

Did you enjoy it?

Yes, it was too enjoyable.

Once upon a time there was a woman...
