Go to bed and give up being a spy. I will watch but i will watch alone. You understand me keep quiet or i will abandon your the big Jaquet embraced me and i Felt his warm tears on my Cheeks. He went to take leave of my wife grasped Henri a hand convulsively and mounting his Pony set off at full Gallop for cram Gousse. I waited patiently through the whole of the next Day. As Henri had foreseen it rained incessantly and it was impossible for Mademoiselle Ninie to go out. After dinner she climbed upon his shoulders and whispered to him. A you two have secrets a said my wife struck with the Siy and mysterious appearance of the child. A ooh yes great secrets and i shall not Tell a replied she putting her Little bands Over Henri a Mouth. Quot done to Tell them any thing my dear Henri and please carry me to the a no it is impossible a said Henri. A there is no Fountain this evening. The rain would swamp our paper boats we must wait for another he got up and went out. Ninie began to cry. My wife wished to console her. I did no give her an Opportunity for taking her in my arms i carried her to my study to show tor some pictures. When she had forgotten her disappointment i endeavoured without questioning her to find out if she were capable of keeping a secret i promised to make Beautiful paper boats for her the next Day and to make them sail on the Pond in the Garden. A no no a she said a your Pond is not pretty enough. On the Fountain in the Meadow there the water is Beautiful and Clear. And there too is Suzette who knows How to amuse me better than you better than Henri and All the a Suzette is then a Little girl of your own age whom you have met there a a of my age a i done to know she is larger than i a Large As re Bell a a a y. A. A ooh no not a old Suzette is very pretty and loves me so much a a and Why does she love you so much a a bless me i done to know perhaps it is because 1 love her in the same Way and embrace her As much As she wants me to. She save that i am pretty and very a and where does Suzette live a a she lives bless me guess she lives at the Fountain she is there every quot but there Are no houses quot that is True. Then she comes to see me so As to make boats for quot this then was your great secret with Henri a a i was afraid Belle let me go i saw that the child had not been entrusted with the secret and would easily forget the fue tended 8uzette if she did not see her be Ore her mothers return. I saw also Why Henri had been in such a hurry to put the old room in order at Perc Emont for regardless of the rain he went there As he had promised and did not return until ten of clock. When his Mother had gone to bed he said to me quot i deceived you the other Day my dear father. Allow me to relate to you this evening the True Story but to commence quickly and clearly read this letter that i received by Post on st. Hyacinthe a a sir Render a great service to a person who has Faith in your Honor. Be to Morrow evening at the fete of Perc Emont. I will he there and will whisper in your ear the name of a you see the orthography is a Little fanciful. I imagined some frivolous adventure or a demand for assistance. I followed you to the fete and saw Jacques dancing with a fascinating Village girl with whom he appeared to be very much enamoured and who passing near me threw adroitly into my ear the word agreed upon a Suzette. A i invited her to dance with me to Jacques great displeasure and we came rapidly to an explanation during the Bourree. A a a i am not Suzette a she said a but Marie de Nives. I am living in strict concealment at Vig Nolette. Emilie my excellent my Best Friend does not know that i am Here and her brother Jacques is displeased with me for coming. I have not told them my secret for they would say i did a foolish thing however i wish to do this foolish thing and i will do it unless you refuse your assistance and Friendship. I demand them and i have a right to expect them. You did me a great wrong without suspecting it when. I was at the Convent of room you wrote me letters that were looked upon As criminal. On account of these unfortunate letters i was taken from this Convent where i was loved and treated kindly and shut up at Clermont under More severe regulations. Jacques helped me to escape. I went to Paris to obtain Legal advice. I now understand my rights and shall soon come into Possession of my estates but while i condemn my step Mother there is in my heart one tender and ardent desire i want to see her daughter Iny poor fathers daughter my Little sister Leome. 8he is in your House manage in some Way to let me see her. The present time is favourable and another such Opportunity mar perhaps never occur. Your whole family is Here the child is alone with her nurse in your House. I have skilled spies at my command who keep me informed of All that goes on. Take me to your House let me Only see my sister. I will just look at her while she is sleeping and i will not Waken her. Grant me the privilege of seeing her and i shall owe you eternal gratitude. Quot the time and the place were not suitable for discussion. I can not Tell what answer i should have made if it had not been for an awkward incident provoked by Jacques jealousy. He put out the signal Light and in the confusion that followed Mademoiselle de Nives seizing my Arm with an extraordinary nervous Force hurried me along in the darkness saying a a a now god wills it you see let us go to your a i was literally Blind. This Light that was Bright enough to put ones eyes out. Having been suddenly extinguished i walked without knowing where my Steps tended and my companion seemed to Lead me. After a minute or two i recognised that we were going in the direction of the Meadow and that a were not alone. A Man and Yoman were walking in front of us. A a a it is my nurse and her husband a mid Mademoiselle de Nives a they Are faithful servants fear nothing. <1 have others besides these in any service. I have any Sisters nurse who was discharged and now watches Over my into Raate a a do you know a i said that Yoa by acting a this Way a a a How is that a a a a perhaps you have a plan of carrying off the child in order to have the Mother in your Power i give you warning that i shall oppose it absolutely. 8he has been confided to my parents and although this Confidence is a Little strange we Are responsible and consider the Trust a a a Yop have a very bad opinion of me a she replied a and must have heard Many unkind reports concerning me. I do not deserve them and am resigned to wait for the future to justify quot her voice has a penetrating clearness and sweetness. I was ashamed of my suspicions and tried to make excuses for my brutality a do not speak a she said a it will delay us run a a and she hurried across the Meadow scarcely touching the soil Light As a Bird of night. A we stopped a moment when we arrived at the Gar ten Gate. A a a i have not yet found a i said a a Way of taking you to the child without danger of your being seen by the servant who has charge of her. I warn you that Mademoiselle Ninie sleeps in my mothers chamber and that during her absence a nurse installed in an easy chair sleeps perhaps very lightly. I know nothing about her she is a Young peasant with whom i am not a a a i am acquainted with her a replied Mademoiselle de Nives a she came to Emilie a a fortnight since to ask for work. We gave her some and i know that she is gentle and Good. Do not be troubled. I know also that she sleeps soundly for she did not Waken during a frightful storm. Come Quick let us enter a a a a allow me you must enter alone with me. The persons who accompany you will remain Here to wait for you a a a of a i led her without noise to my mothers chamber guiding her through the dark passage ways. I entered first softly. The Little nurse did not stir. A Candle was burning on a table behind the curtain. Mademoiselle de Nives took it resolutely in order to look at the sleeping child then gave it to me and kneeling by the bedside glued her lips to Ninie a Little hand saying As if she were praying to god a a a Grant that she May love me i swear to love her dearly a a i touched her gently on the shoulder. She arose and followed me. Submissively to the Garden. There she took both my hands in hers saying to me a a a Henri Chantabul you have Given me the greatest happiness i Ever experienced in my hard and sad life you Are now for me like one of those Angels whom i often invoke and who inspire me with calmness and courage during my meditations. I am a poor girl without mind and without instruction. Those who had charge of me brought me up in this Way they did it on purpose for they thought the More ignorant i was the less Power i should have to assert my rights. But the Light necessary to guide my Steps comes from above no one can put it out. Have Confidence in me As i had Confidence in you. Confidence is so Noble without it every tiling is evil and impossible. Permit me to see my sister again to hear her voice to read her looks and to receive her first kiss. Let me return to Morrow disguised As to Day. Remember no one knows my face your parents have never seen me and Madame de Nives herself would perhaps not recognize me for she has not seen me for Many years. I will hide somewhere you will bring Leonie to me you will be there and you will not leave her. Must i entreat you on my Knees behold me Here i am a a Little disturbed by her exaltation hut conquered by the Charm emanating from so remarkable a person i consented to a meeting at the Tower of Perc Emont the next Day at dusk promising to find some Means of taking her sister to meet her and i asked permission to inform you of Liat was going on. A a a Oil no not yet a she cried. A i shall Tell every thing to your father myself for 1 have much to Tell and he will he obliged to listen to me it is his duty to Madame de Nives and my sister i can ruin them but i do not wish to. Tipiere is one thing on which i have not entirely made up my mind i must see the child again and if your parents of sose it i should not know what i ought to o. Promise to keep my secret for a few a a a Well i Promise. But Jacques what shall i say to him if he asks me any questions a a a a he will not ask you any a a a is he not your Joancev a a a no he is nothing to me but a generous and excellent a a a but he loves you. That is very a a a he loves me yes and i return it with All my heart but there is not a word of love making Between a a a you swear to keep my secret a a a a yes i swear. Of How i love you a so much As Jacques a a a a still More a a after this she took flight with her companions leaving me astonished and nearly stunned with the adventure. A the next Day that is Day before yesterday i decided upon the Fountain in the Meadow As the most favourable place for the meeting. I found Means of informing Char Liette that devoted nurse who came in the daytime to explore the Wood of Perc Emont so As to find her Way about without following beaten paths. She is a skillful and sagacious woman. I showed her the Fountain from the Hill above it and the path through the vines that led to it. I took Down the fences and the same evening while playing with Ninie carried her without telling her any thing to the meeting with her sister who was waiting for her under the Willows. The acquaintance was quickly made thanks to the paper boats but i must say that Mademoiselle de Nives passion for this child was like that of an irresistible Lover. In a moment Leonie was hanging Union her neck and devouring her with caresses. She was unwilling to leave her and i could Only induce her to go Back to her nurse by promising to bring her the next Day to the Fountain and Suzette. A yesterday i kept my word. Suzette had crammed her pockets with Rose coloured and Blue paper. She had made with the dexterity of a nun charming Little boats that floated delightfully but Ninie was not so much amused As on the evening before. She had made up her mind never to leave Suzette and insisted upon taking her Home with her for a nurse. 1 had great trouble in separating them. Finally this evening for the last time i saw Mademoiselle de Nives in the Tower where we had agreed to meet. I considered this interview useless to her plans and allowed it with regret since the bad weather prevented me from taking Leonie to her sister. I went to the meeting a Little out of temper. Mademoiselle de Nives is an irritating person. She throws herself on your neck morally sneaking. She has inflections of tenderness him exaggerated expressions of gratitude which most trouble poor Jacques profoundly and have Mode me impatient More then once hat it if impossible to give expression to the disapprobation she provokes. She is not affected she does not study an attitude she is naturally beyond the Region of probability and yet she is in the right when her Point of View is accepted. We to tuned for two hours Tete a Tete in the Tower where i had Kindred a great fire of Pine Cones to dry her wet garments and was obliged to see that0ke was warm in spite of herself. Fearless and like one insensible to All external influences she had walked smilingly under a beating rain and smiled anew in seeing me troubled on account of her health. She manifested no More embarrassment nor fear in finding herself alone with me coming to an interview dangerous to her reputation than if i had been her brother. The nurse stayed below in the Kitchen warming herself also and troubling herself no More at leaving us together than if eccentricities of this kind were nothing new to her. All this would have turned the head of an ambitious fool for Mademoiselle de Nives is an eligible person and can be easily compromised but i Hope that you have a sufficiently Good opinion of Meto be very certain that i have not made love to her and shall not to do so. This is my Romance dear father. Tell me what you think of it. And if you blame me for having allowed the Adverse party for my Mother pretends that you Are the defender and Legal adviser of the countess to embrace her Little sister Ninie without your knowledge a m chapter Xii. A reduced to these proportions the affair is not serious a i replied quot but you have not told me the most important part the conversation of this evening your Only conversation for until this time you could Exchange nothing but a few interrupted words As you were not alone quot yes indeed the two preceding Days i escorted her half Way to Vig Nolette through the Woods the nurse i ought to say the Duenna walked at a respectful quot then you know what those great projects Are upon which mile. De Nives your client intends to Converse with me quot quot an attempt at reconciliation Between her and her step Mother Mademoiselle de Nives wishes to be at Liberty to see her sister quot i believe that the interviews will be dearly purchased and the requirements for making such an engagement serious. Marie de Nives has no Power Over Leonie de Nives and the Law will give her no quot she relies upon you to find the quot do you see any a quot i see a thousand if your client looks Only for Money As mine claims she does. The important question is the duration of the Friendship of the two quot every tiling appears simple when suppositions Are taken for accomplished facts. Suppose that my client since client she is according to you has an unconquerable aversion to her step Daug liter that she fights for her Fortune but Tiitu it is Only for her daughters Sake and that she would like better to have her remain poor than lie exposed to the influence of a person of whom she has so poor an quot you will plead with her for poor quot poor Marie is greatly to he pitied for the past but now that she is free i own that i feel no special interest in a you Are not acquainted with her a i accept her As you paint her and As Jacques has described her. Your two versions differently drawn up. Agree in essential Points. I think she is an excellent person with very pure intentions. Is that sufficient to make her a judicious woman a serious being capable of directing a child like Leonie and of inspiring some Confidence in her Mother i do not believe her capable of inspiring a indeed i assure you she is deserving of great quot that is to say you have been very much interested in her and have known How to conceal it from her through respect for yourself a quot do not speak of me i am out of the question. Speak of a Jacques has been still More interested and probably More timid than you. Jacques is a youth whose wild deeds and Depths of sentiment need not be much dreaded by any person Ever so badly brought up. Shall i Tell you what i think i do not believe your client in danger but i think her dangerous. I see her in a very agreeable and even diverting situation since she finds Means to reconcile in her conscience obscurely enlightened from above or from below the frivolous pleasures of life with celestial ecstasy. She cherishes in the Convent the idea of being a Wise Virgin but has the instinct of a foolish Virgin and from the moment that she throws off the restraint of austerity which armed at All Points forms the strength of catholicism i do not see where she will Stop. She has nothing to put in the place of this terrible Yoke necessary to minds without culture and consequently without reflection. She has no philosophy to create a Law for herself and no appreciation of social life and the obligations it imposes. She forms a fantastic idea of duty seeks her own in the combinations of Romance and has not the least idea of the most simple moral obligations. It pleases her to leave the Convent before the time close at hand fixed by Law for her deliverance she did not know How to find a proper Protection for this rash act and accepts that of a woman who speculates upon the liberality of the suitors she recruits. She finds it natural to accept Jacques Ormonde for a Liberator passes eight Days alone with him and As he does not inspire her with love so i understand cares very Little for the passion aroused in his breast the Hopes he cherishes the bursts of anger and suspense she imposes upon quot father she is entirely ignorant of these things and has no idea of the passion of a so much the worse for her i a woman should have an intuitive perception of what she does not know by experience otherwise she is not a woman she is a hybrid mysterious and suspicious whom every one should be afraid of. Who can Tell where the Awakening of the senses will Lead such _ person i believe that the senses already play the principal part in the angelic chastity that drives that Young lady from Jacques arms into a say rather from Jacques Arm to mine she has sought and Fonnue Only a one improvised protector is a great Deal. Two Are much too Many for two months of Liberty. Why has not this heroine of Romance succeeded in overcoming my repugnance to become acquainted with her and listen to her Story ? since she knows How to disguise herself so Well she might have found Entrance Here As a servant we were looking for one to take care of the a she thought of it but was afraid of my mothers penetration who she knows is prejudiced against a she was afraid of your Mother and she was afraid of Mel invited by Mylette and Jacques to Trust her of live to me she did not dare to follow their advice she does not Zeldara. She prefers to apply to you in order to see her a stray As she applied to Jaquet to escape from her Cage. Shall i Tell you Why a quot Tell me a because the support of Young men is always assured to a pretty girl while the old exercise their judgment in the question. Beauty produces a rapid proselytism. A Young Man is combustible material and does not resist like an old i combustible Man of the Law. With a tender glance and a suppliant weird in the twinkling of an Eye she finds Brilliant Cavaliers ready for every foolish Enterprise. She trusts to them her most intimate secrets and they Are delighted to be received As confidants. Is this Confidence the supreme favor she Lores them on in this Way and very soon controls them. She accents their love provided they do not express their feelings too plainly exposes them without mercy to scandalous tongues makes use of their Money a quot father 1�?� quot not you but Jacques is already in fora Large sum i Tell you. She is Rich will pay her obligations and preserve a sincere gratitude for the two friends except by marrying a third the others will get out of the affair As they like. I Tell you my sor., you have just passed two hours in a Tete a Tete intoxicating and painful at the same time with an Angel but United with this Angel there is an ungrateful devotee and perhaps a consummate coquette. Take care of yourself listen to Liat i say to my son while listening to me moved about uneasily his eyes fixed upon the embers and his face Pale in spite of the red Light reflected upon it by the fire. It seemed to me i had touched the right chord. Quot then a he said rising and fixing upon me his great Black eyes full of expression a a you blame me for having helped to carry out the plans of this Young woman a quot not at All. At your age i should have done the same thing Only i Tell you Tobe on your quot lest i fall in love you take me for a quot it is not very Long since you were one and this is All the better for he reflected a few moments and replied a that is True it is not very Long since i was in love with Miette when the thought of her made my heart beat and kept me from sleeping. Miette is much More Beautiful now above All she has an expression and i do not see that freshness and health injure the Ideal in a Type of woman. The greek statues have rounded lines in poetry. Mademoiselle de Nives is pretty like a Little boy. Her paleness is a matter of fancy. And then it is not Beauty that takes Possession of the heart it is character. I have studied this character a character entirely new to Memore judicially than you think and in All that you have just said i think there is much truth in regard to ingratitude especially. I could not help telling her that she made Jacques suffer to frilly she believed herself justified in saying that she had made no promises to quot she docs something worse that you did not think of. She tries to injure Emilie Schara quot i thought of it and told her so. What do you think she said in reply Emilie a character can not be injured. She possesses a Beauty beyond All stain. If any one said that i behaved improperly while under her roof the whole country would reply with one single voice that it was against your cousins will or without her knowledge. And you also would you not cry out to the detractors you spoke falsely the proof of her respectability is that she is my betrothed and i am going to marry her a a quot very Well. Did you reply to this question directly a quot i made no reply. It was repulsive to me to discuss Emilie and my secret sentiments with a person who can not comprehend human quot i regret that you made her no quot Tell me father do you think that Emilie a quot go on. Emilie a a she must know that her Friend has been absent every evening for some Days a quot it seems impossible that she can be ignorant of it. The House of Vig Nolette is Large hut in such a secluded life the absence of one of the two inmates must be quot Mademoiselle de Nives pretends that Emilie asks no questions and manifests no uneasiness. How do you explain this a quot by the religion of a generous hospitality. See the letter i received from her Henri read the letter and returned it. Quot i see a he said quot that in the Bottom of her h Art the Good and dear child blames her strange companion. She is right. Did you notice that she was unhappy the last time you saw her a a a Emilie unhappy no but a displeased with Mademoiselle Marie a a and perhaps so with me a quot i done to know what she thought about a Mademoiselle de Nives says that Miette Lias a great a for what reason a a that is the reply i made there is no reason for it. Miette is not in love with a and you added a i am not in love with her a a a no father i did not say so i avoided speaking of myself. It could not interest Mademoiselle de Nives. What Day will you receive her a a she runs the risk of meeting her Stepmother who May who ought to return for her daughter at any a Madame de Nives can not return yet she is ill in a who told you so a quot Mademoiselle de Nives has her closely watched. She took the influenza while running around Paris and the suburbs to sur Irise her in some flagrant Delict favourable to Ler hostile plans As she had Only false information one made no quot this Young woman May then come to the Tower to Morrow with Miette. Your Mother intends to pay visits at room and will know nothing of the affair. I wish for your assistance at the interview since you Are the Counselor of Mademoiselle Marie. I shall perhaps Call up master Jacques and s Ive an order for Leonie to be brought to us or a Little while. I want to see with my own eyes if this grand passion for the child is sincere. Go to sleep. To Morrow Early i will Send an express to Vig Nolette and perhaps to the next Day i wrote to Emilie and her brother. At noon i went to the Tower with Henri and the Little Leonie. We found Miette there with Mademoiselle de Nives. Jacques who lived further off arrived at last my first word was an act of authority. Charliette was on the threshold of the Kitchen butt perceiving me quickly took Refuge within. I had seen her however and addressing Mademoiselle de Nives demanded if this woman was on the watch by tor orders. Mademoiselle de Nives seemed surprised and said she did tint come with tor. Time to get the Start of me and asked the distracted Charliette what one was doing in my House. She replied that she came to deceive Mademoiselle Marie a orders. Quot Mademoiselle Marie does not need you go away. I forbid you from Ever putting your foot in my House without my permission a a nah a cried Charliette in a dramatic tone. A i see that my dear Young indy is ruined you Are All against her a quot go a i resumed a the quicker the better a she went away furious and i rejoined the ladies in the apartment refurnished by Henri. Mademoiselle de Nives wore her costume of a Village girl which was marvellously becoming to her i must confess. Leonie threw herself into her arms they were inseparable Emilie also caressed the child and found her charming. I saw that at the last moment Marie had made a full confession. Henri appeared a Little Embarrass cd for carrying out the part he had As Sunjy a. He heard opportunely the step of Jacques Pony and went Down to help him in putting it into the stable. During this time coming and going and without having the appearance of wishing to enter upon the subject at present i observed the features and attitude of Mademoiselle do Nives and found her simple and sincere. This Point gained i examined my Niece she was changed neither Pale nor cast Down hut serious and As if armed for any combat with a High and magnanimous will. Jacques entered and met with a cordial Welcome. He kissed respectfully the hand that Mademoiselle de Nives extended to him without the least embarrassment. He was much disconcerted by astonishment and uneasiness and appeared to be Nerving himself up for a crisis beyond his Power to Avert. A now a i said to Mademoiselle de Nives a we Are going to discuss matters that will be very tiresome to Mademoiselle Ninie. She May go and play in the Yard directly under our a yes a cried Leonie a with a by and by a i said. A i Promise to Jeff you see her again before she goes a that is not True you will not Call me a i give you my Promise a said Mademoiselle de Nives. A you must be Good and obey m. Chantabul. He is master Here quot and every one is willing to do As he Ninie submitted but not without making Suzette Promise to sit near the window where she could look at her every moment. When we were seated Miette began ores lately a Uncle a she said a you have consented to receive my Friend and i thank you for her and for myself.
