Franz Kafka and the doll

At age 40 Franz Kafka who never married and had no children, walked through Berlin park when he met a young lady who cried, because she had lost her favorite doll. She and Kafka searched for the doll without success.
Kafka told her to meet him there the next day because they would come back for her.
The next day, when they hadn’t found the Kafka doll yet gave the girl a letter ” written ” by the doll, which said, ” Please don’t cry. I took a trip to see the world I will write you about my adventures.”
So began a story that continued until the end of Kafka’s life.
During her meetings, Kafka read the doll’s letters, written carefully with adventures and conversations that the girl found adorable.
Finally, Kafka brought him the doll (bought one) that had returned to Berlin.
“she doesn’t look like my doll at all”, the girl said.
Kafka delivered another letter in which the doll wrote: “my travels changed me” the girl hugged the new doll and took her all happy home.
A year later, Kafka died.
Many years later, the adult girl found a letter inside the wrist. In the little letter signed by Kafka it said:
” Everything you love will probably be lost, but in the end love will return differently.”
