Carpe Diem - Oltanis: FateSometimes, things don't turn out how you plan.Carpe Diem - Oltanis: Fate by ~TheAuthoressComplex
You can plot and conspire and scheme as much as you like, but there are some things that are simply beyond your control.

Instead, he completed the sequence and turned to the Lombax, his expression neutral, "No, it had n
