"Yes, thank you, Thérèse, I rather think this bout isn't going to amount to much after all. It looks like a false alarm." "Ah, that would be too marvellous! Perhaps you have a very strong what do you call it? constitution. Dido, darling, will you be an angel and fasten this strap for me? Aline is out on an errand." She leant over so that her sister-in-law need not rise.

"Your heart has seen me, your eyes shall see me too, my child." He led her to a sofa and seated her gently beside him. Then passing his outstretched band before her, she trembled. "You are very much excited to-day, Therese," said he, with a slight tone of disapprobation. "I am excited because you are so, dear friend," said the blind girl. "Your eyes dart beams that threaten to consume the world."

But the excellent widow confided to her that, at fifty-five years of age, when she was fifty-three, Louis was just as jealous as on the first day of their marriage. And Therese thought that Robert had never tormented her with jealousy. Was it on his part a proof of tact and good taste, a mark of confidence, or was it that he did not love her enough to make her suffer?

Haven't you a nice, pretty French name that we could call you instead?" "Therese! Yes, please do! I should feel so much more happy!" cried Mademoiselle eagerly, and Bridgie nodded in approval. "Therese is charming, and it's so much more friendly to use Christian names at Christmas-time. I shall begin at once. We want you to help us with the decoration of the rooms, Therese!

He was only furious, sick at heart, utterly miserable... He must have sat for an hour on the side of his bed, huddled in his dressing-gown, shivering and moistening his dry lips. He was like that when Thérèse came in to inquire how he was feeling. He saw her face alter as she caught sight of him, and he dully surmised that he must look pretty queer.

Come, Therese, you will feel at once that you love as you loved me formerly in the little nest where we were so happy. Come!" He approached her ardently. She, her eyes full of fright, pushed him away with a kind of horror. He understood, stopped, and said: "You have a lover." She bent her head, then lifted it, grave and dumb.

How could he doubt the story? You have explained it all to me so fully." Therese took her by the shoulders: "Yes, but I'll explain other things to him at the same time, Germaine, things that concern you. If I'm ruined, so shall you be." "You can't touch me." "I can expose you, show your letters." "What letters?" "Those in which my death was decided on." "Lies, Therese!

His hand came from beneath the coat at last, and it came armed with a pistol. Mme. de Plougastel screamed, and flung herself upon him. On her knees now, she clung to his arm with all her strength and might. Vainly he sought to shake himself free of that desperate clutch. "Therese!" he cried. "Are you mad? Will you destroy me and yourself?

There will be plenty time for that in the rest of my life,” he said, trying to speak calmly and forcing his voice to a harshness which the nearness of tears made needful. “Does she know? Have you told her?” “Oh yes, she knows how much I love her.” “And she does not love you,” said Thérèse, seeming rather to assert than to question. “No, she does not. No matter what she says she does not.

If not, may God direct us, by whatever suffering, to some other method of teaching it; for, at whatever cost, it must be learned! Let us begone." "One moment," exclaimed Therese, in agitation.
