“Good. You've done your homework.” The girl turned around and started inspecting a decaying tree, as if checking its health. “Funny, isn't? How nature can make us do things that don't benefit our survival. Things that are just a complete waste of time and energy. Or even worst, things that may hurt us—or those around us. Why is that? It doesn't make sense at all.”
I have no idea why things turned out like this (damn, that word again). And I'm not sure how to solve it. Any suggestions?
