THE UNCONQUERED

old woman was in the yard and her face lit up when she saw the parcel he was bringing. She led him into the kitchen. Her hands trembled a little as she untied the string and when she saw what he had brought her eyes filled with tears.
" You're very good," she said.
" May I sit down?" he asked politely.
" Of course." She looked out of the window and Hans guessed that she wanted to make sure that Annette was not coming. "Can I offer you a glass of wine?"
" I'd be glad of it."
He was sharp enough to see that her greed for food had made her, if not friendly to him, at least willing to come to terms with him. That look out of the window made them almost fellow conspirators."
" Did you like the pork?" he asked.
" It was a treat."
" I'll try to bring you some more next time I come. Did Annette like it?"
" She wouldn't touch a thing you'd left. She said she'd rather starve."
" Silly."
" That's what I said to her. As long as the food is there, I said, there's nothing to be gained by not eating it."
They chatted quite amicably while Hans sipped his wine. He discovered that she was called Madame Perier. He asked her whether there were any other members of the family. She sighed. No, they'd had a son, but he'd been mobilised at the beginning of the war and he'd died. He hadn't been killed, he'd got pneumonia and died in the hospital at Nancy.
" I'm sorry," said Hans.
" Perhaps he's better off than if he'd lived. He was like Annette in many ways. He could never have borne the shame of defeat." She sighed again. "Oh, my poor friend, we've been betrayed."
" Why did you want to fight for the Poles? What were they to you?"
