Camellia brought Valmont some wine. He looked at his watch, drank and died.
Valmont was hopelessly in love with Camellia, but she didn’t reciprocate. One day she offered Valmont a cruel game: she put some poison into one of the two glasses of wine, and Valmont had to drink any of them. If he survived, Camelia agreed to marry him.
Valmont used his watch as a coin to decide his fate (by the position of the second hand to the left or right of the vertical line). He was unlucky.
