At the centre of the fifth moral tale is a diplomat soon to be married. Temptation is fragmented between several women, especially two schoolgirls, encountered while he is on summer vacation. The digression of his developing passion takes the form of an obsessive game he sets himself - to touch the knee of Claire, the more distant of the two. This fetish is intellectualised by him to the point of abstraction. While he has as little control over events as the other protagonists in the moral tales he is more self aware. But unlike other protagonists he is not the sole narator. The older woman, Aurora, a novelist, 'doubles' the narration in her diary. This is the moral tale where desire most clearly establishes the narrative disequilibrium, with love, in the person of the absent fiancee, placed outside the narrative
