Then he staggered to the mantelpiece, and leaned on it with both his elbows, his hands covering his face. But there was no disguise now no attempt to make it. A young man's first love not first fancy, but first love in all its passion, desperation, and pain had come to him, as it comes to all. I saw him writhing under it saw, and could not help him.
