She was seized with an intense uneasiness at the prospect of having to be alone again so soon, and she said: "I have plenty of time as much as you like. But, of course, it must not be too late." "Is your cousin so strict then?" "But " she said, "this time, as a matter of fact, I'm not staying with her, you see." He looked at her in astonishment. She grew red.
