He said nothing. Juliana peeped at him again. You’re very anxious to get her in your power again,Vidal. But I don’t quite know why you should be, for you meant to marry her only because you hadruined her, and so were obliged to, didn’t you?She thought that he was not going to answer, but suddenly he raised his eyes from the contemplationof the dregs of his wine. Because I am obliged to? he said. I mean to marry Mary Challonerbecause I’m devilish sure I can’t live without her.Juliana clapped her hands with a crow of delight. Oh, it is famous! she exclaimed. I never dreamedyou had fallen in love with my staid Mary! I thought you were chasing her through France justbecause you so hate to be crossed! But when you flew into a rage with me for saying she was too dullto be afraid of you, of course, I guessed at once! My dearest Dominic, I was never more glad ofanything in my life, and it is of all things the most romantic possible! Do, do let us overtake them atonce! Only conceive of their astonishment when they see us!
