Reaction to Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita" (Part 4)

[Part 1]
[Part 2]
[Part 3]


The main character wonders if the girls he has been lusting after are somehow in the future effected by this or as he says "Had I not somehow tampered with her fate by involving her image in my voluptas?" Well I can say:

Today I gave a young girl across the road a look, I think this made her agitated and so she begun to cross the road prematurely. She would have been hit by an oncoming speeding coach had I not shouted and signaled to her to stop/wait!
and so yes we are tampering with fate for better and/or worse.
