That face was clear in complexion, regular in outline, and at the present time pale, whatever might be its ordinary tint. Its charm was a noble and majestic calm.

But Linforth caught the hand which she held out to thrust him off, and, clasping it, drew her towards him. "I love you," he said; and she answered him in desperation: "But you don't know me."

Genevra had been a wife for nearly three months the wife of a man she loathed; she was calling in her heart for him to come to her; she was suffering in that unspeakable hell. All this he had come to feel and shudder over in his unspeakable loneliness. He would go to her!
