As she looked up again, she found herself staring straight into Ali’s eyes. He winked. Startled, she drew in her breath sharply as she fell backwards, blushing furiously.

“Cheeky devil!” she muttered under her breath.

  1. Yes this story exists across cultures and throughout history. Whenever I hear these stories I always ask the same questions you did and answer much the same.

    A western version of much of the same was sent to me:
