Tom was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business. He knew that he would inherit a fortune once his sickly father died.
Tom wanted two things out of life: to learn how to invest his inheritance and to find a wife to share his fortune.
One evening at an investment meeting, he spotted the most attractive woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away.
"I may look like just an ordinary man," he said to her, "but in just a few years my father will die and I'll inherit twenty million dollars."
Impressed, the woman obtained his business card.
Two weeks later, she became his stepmother.
