Story about a Roman writer
A young woman named Lucretia was studying the works of Titus Calpurnius Siculus. She was a student of literature and was fascinated by the way he captured the essence of love and romance in his poems.

One day, as she was studying in the library, she stumbled upon a mysterious manuscript. It was an ancient text, written in an archaic language that was unfamiliar to her. Despite her best efforts, she was unable to decipher its meaning. However, she was determined to find out what was written within its pages.

With the help of a wise old scholar, she was able to translate the manuscript and learned that it was a collection of poems written by Titus Calpurnius Siculus. The poems were filled with passion and longing, and Lucretia was completely captivated by their beauty. She spent many hours studying the poems, trying to understand the feelings and emotions that lay behind each verse.

One day, she discovered that the manuscript was cursed. Those who read the poems would be possessed by the spirit of Titus Calpurnius Siculus, and would become consumed by their own passions and desires. Despite this, Lucretia was unable to resist the temptation of the poems, and she soon found herself lost in their alluring words.
