AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The narrator, who works in a cafe, tells the story of Alice, who seemed to have the perfect relationship with her boyfriend Martin. The narrator's friend Annie, the maitre d', is more sceptical, claiming that perfect relationships don't exist, and that either Alice or Martin will eventually cheat. When Alice seems sad, and Martin subsequently appears with a different woman, Annie's predictions are confirmed.
