In the short story, “Bluebeard” by Charles Perrault, curiosity gets Bluebeard’s wife in a great deal of trouble. Bluebeard gives his wife all of the keys to the house that would allow her access to all rooms but he has one stipulation and that is that she is not to enter the forbidden closet.

The doctor’s assistants hold you down and pull apart your legs, tying them to your mother’s. The doctor says a prayer, and the next thing you feel is agony, there is only pain.
