Which of the following sentences would you consider most acceptable, and why? Please assume knowledge of the difference between the definite and indefinite articles here and that they are used intentionally. The question specifically relates to the choice of article with respect to the preposition which follows - in these cases, of/about.
A - I want to tell you a story about Mark.
B - I want to tell you the story about Mark.
C - I want to tell you a story of Mark.
D - I want to tell you the story of Mark.
My instinct, as a native speaker, is that A and D are more acceptable than B and C, but I can't explain why.
