She could not speak, for she was weeping. She turned her face from him and dried her eyes.

“Well, let her cry a bit…. I’ll wait,” he thought, and sat down.

Then he rang and ordered tea, and then, as he drank it, she stood and gazed out of the window…. She was weeping in distress, in the bitter knowledge that their life had fallen out so sadly; only seeing each other in secret, hiding themselves away like thieves! Was not their life crushed?

“Don’t cry…. Don’t cry,” he said.

It was clear to him that their love was yet far from its end, which there was no seeing. Anna Sergueyevna was more and more passionately attached to him; she adored him and it was inconceivable that he should tell her that their love must some day end; she would not believe it.
