Men can be as quick witted as women can especially when it comes down to them getting caught or in trouble In Heptamerons seventh story we are told that a merchant is in love with a young girl who is his neighbor She too is totally infatuated with him as well What the girl does not realize is she is letting him take advantage of her He merely pretended to be devoted to her in order to cover up a more exalted and honourable passion for someone else 2585 Here the merchant blatantly states that it is the other way around and that he is lying about his love for her The young girls mother is astonished by this man and forbade her daughter from seeing him He however deceives her and meets with the young girl frequently He seems to know what he is getting himself into but soon gets close to being caught One day the mother finds out that the merchant is in her daughters room and runs to catch them in the act Although the merchant is very quick witted and runs to the mother acting like she was the one he was in love with all this time By doing this the young girl gets away but does not realize that he is actually deceiving her too This story is interesting because the merchant got into this situation by being deceptive but also got himself out of the situation by being deceptive once again It is as if his deception helped him recover from what he had gotten himself into Today we always think that two wrongs dont make a right but in this case two wrongs of deceiving these women seemed to make a right
