THE UNCONQUERED

She translated his name into French and called him Jean. He was always ready to give a hand, and as time went on and Annette could do less and less it was useful to have a man about who didn't mind doing a job of work.
Annette remained fiercely hostile. She never spoke to him except to answer his direct questions and as soon as it was possible went to her own room. When it was so cold that she couldn't stay there she sat by the side of the kitchen stove, sewing or reading, and took no more notice of him than if he hadn't been there. She was in radiant health. There was colour in her cheeks and in Hans's eyes she was beautiful. Her approaching maternity had given her a strange dignity and he was filled with exultation when he gazed upon her. Then one day when he was on his way to the farm he saw Madame Perier in the road waving to him to stop. He put his brakes on hard.
" I've been waiting for an hour. I thought you'd never come. You must go back. Pierre is dead."
" Who's Pierre?"
" Pierre Gavin. The teacher Annette was going to marry:"
Hans's heart leapt. What luck! Now he'd have his chance.
" Is she upset?"
" She's not crying. When I tried to say something she bit my head off. If she saw you today she's capable of sticking a knife into you."
" It's not my fault if he died. How did you hear?"
" A prisoner, a friend of his, escaped through Switzerland and he wrote to Annette. We got the letter this morning. There was a mutiny in the camp because they weren't given enough to eat, and the ringleaders were shot. Pierre was one of them."
Hans was silent. He could only think it served the man right. What did they think that a prison camp was-the Ritz?
" Give her time to get over the shock," said Madame Perier. "When she's calmer I'll talk to her. I'll write you a letter when you can come again."
" All right. You will help me, won't you?"
