Jeg forstår mig ikke på Dem, svarte hun forundret. Så De ikke alt det jeg hadde gjort? Kunde jeg så komme til Dem? Nei, sa jeg også, så kunde De kanske ikke komme til mig. Jeg var forvåken og utmattet, min tale blev intetsi gende og ubehersket, jeg hadde været ulykkelig den hele dag. - Nei så kunde De jo ikke komme til mig.

Kan De slet ikke tåle at jeg tar hendes navn i munden? Si mig, sa jeg, hvad er Deres egentlige mening om jomfru Edvarda? Det interesserer mig å vite. Han så mistænksomt på mig. Min egentlige mening? De kan kanske meddele mig nye ting idag, De har kanske endog fridd og fåt ja. Kan jeg lykønske Dem? Ikke? Ja, pokker tro Dem, ha-ha-ha. Så det var det De var rædd for!

Jeg vilde ha indbudt dig skriftlig. Og mit hjærte letnet usigelig. Hun gik nikkende til avsked. Endnu ett, sa jeg stående på samme plet.
