Having heard about destiny, fate, premonition and other similarly unreal esoteric concepts the whole evening, I decided to give it a try.

I set out for a walk after leaving the bar, with no particular goal in mind, ready to be guided by the higher powers whose existence I had thus far denied.

After 30 minutes in the dark, fate had indeed led me to exactly the one house in the city to which the key – which had miraculously appeared in my pocket – fit. Even more miraculously, the apartment was empty, mine to take over. I did so, fully converted, for this was much more compelling evidence than anything that the believers had tried to produce. Never again shall I doubt the wisdom of the gods, destiny, the oracle and all the holy virgins and witches.
