THE UNCONQUERED

told them to say that they had come from her. The midwife gave them some medicine. It made Annette so ill that she thought she was going to die, but it had no further effect. Annette was still pregnant.
That was the story that Madame Perier told Hans. For a while he was silent.
" It's Sunday tomorrow," he said then. "I shall have nothing to do. I'll come and we'll talk. I'll bring something nice."
" We have no needles. Can you bring some?"
" I'll try."
She hoisted the bundle of sticks on her back and trudged down the road. Hans went back to Soissons. He dared not use his motor-cycle, so next day he hired a push-bike. He tied his parcel of food on the carrier. It was a larger parcel than usual because he had put a bottle of champagne into it. He got to the farm when the gathering darkness made it certain that they would all be home from work. It was warm and cosy in the kitchen when he walked in. Madame Perier was cooking
and her husband was reading a Paris-Soir. Annette was darn
ing stockings.
" Look, I've brought you some needles," he said, as he undid his parcel. "And here's some material for you, Annette."
" I don't want it."
" Don't you?" he grinned. "You'll have to begin making things for the baby."
" That's true, Annette," said her mother, "and we have i~othing:" Annette did not look up from her sewing. Madame I'erier's greedy eyes ran over the contents of the parcel. "A bottle of champagne."
Hans chuckled.
" I'll tell you what that's for presently. I've had an idea." He hesitated for a moment, then drew up a chair and sat down facing Annette. "I don't know quite how to begin. I'm sorry for what I did that night, Annette. It wasn't my fault, it was the circumstances. Can't you forgive me?"
She threw him a look of hatred.
