Why is it "the story" in this case, rather than "the history"?
This is actually really common in many languages like French (l'histoire), Spanish (la historia) and also Polish
In German while we have a totally different word (Geschichte) we also don't have a difference between "story" and "history"
It could be either.
so the question of the day.. how am i suppossed to know whether history or story is meant?
Not just a story, his story.
