OCR Latin Foundations Tier Passage 53: A merchant is shipwrecked leaving his wife alone at home.
There was a certain merchant called Suevus. He had a house near the shore and often used to sail across the sea in his ship carrying cargo. He used to leave his wife at home when he was visiting foreign lands. One day, a huge storm blew his off course to the coast of an unknown land. Because the ship had been wrecked with all its cargo, he was not able to return home for a long time. Meanwhile his wife, who did not like to be alone, began to hold parties at home. Many young men used to come to her house, and one of them spent the whole night with her. So, she became pregnant and, after nine months, gave birth to a son.
