Laura turned again and stopped her, holding her arm as she passed toward the door. 'Will you swear will you swear by everything that is most sacred? 'Will I swear what?

Swear that, Marsa."
I don't suppose that you have addressed this rebuke to me solely for the purpose of telling me that you are in love with my wife!"
