He sits, cross-legged and sun-drenched, in a verdant meadow. Plucking a thin, young blade of grass, he rests it between his full lips and chews upon it, releasing its earthy juices. Nearby, the gurgling of a lazy brook lulls his mind, causing it to wander aimlessly. He is not even surprised when the green fairy appears, close enough to touch. She reaches out to touch his cheek, her long arm lithe as a dancer’s. She speaks: “You have dreamed of me, and I am here to grant the deepest wish of your heart of hearts.”

Your mouth opens and you form the words with exaggerated movements of your lips, like a parent urging an infant to eat. And yet, by the rules of the game, you must remain silent. You curse the Creator for introducing this damnable concept of “free will.” It’s frustrating – to him, to you, and possibly to the Creator himself. Move, you think, as loudly as you can. Say something.
