Wiktor is interested in all of the sisters, but is cowardly and indecisive, and therefore cannot make a decision on which one to pursue. The four sisters are lead on occasionally, but each is crushed when Wiktor gives another sister attention. Out of naiveté Wiktor does not seem to realize how much they all care for him and out of fear does not know how to respond when they tell him of their interest in him. (amazon.com)
