But fate doesn't change, she becomes a widow at twenty three, and that year her son is only five. In her thirtieth year, she finally defeats all her elders, and becomes the Mistress of a family. But she fails to defeat the love desire, and that year she finds herself pregnant, and the other party is her personal male servant. She faces the challenge of the fate strongly, and then, she wins. This woman lives to the age of seventy five. When she is going to die, she begins to understand the lonely fate of this life seems to be destined when she is born, just as her broken palm lines.
