Then Ivashka dragged a stone up a hill and suggested to break it to the patient, the battle-scarred old man. "Let the poor man a good life will see," he decided magnanimously Ivashka.

The old man came, got up, lit a cigarette and remembered his life. I thought – didn't touch the stone. And I another life? Another young? When my passed difficult, but clearly and honestly!
