The second story is about a one-syllable word from Jean Cocteau. Cocteau had showed to a newsreporter the moving or prestigious memories among whom he was living. And the visitor asked him the traditional question :

– If the house was burning, and you had the time to take only one thing, which one would you chose ?

Cocteau answered : 

– The fire !

The story boils down to a short word from Cocteau. Showing the prestigious or emotional memories surrounding him to a journalist, this one asked the traditionnal question :

– If the house was burning, and you’d could take only one thing with you, which would you choose ?

– Fire !
