I open the door to find a girl with chocolaty curly hair whom I never have seen before, she takes hold of my hand with both her hands imploring me to help her. And she sighing and almost sobbing tells me Why do you care? It is not a story, it is supposed to be a review of Jacques the fatalist. Philosophy, theatre, literature, science— he was involved in them all and his efforts during the enlightenment age earned praises from his contemporary Voltaire.

Niktilar And now you are still pestering me to finish the story first. The fate governs the world and one, has to bow before it. View all 4 comments.
