THE UNCONQUERED

"Oh, come, daughter, the time has passed for foolishness. You must be realistic. Pierre is dead. Jean loves you and wants to marry you. He's a fine-looking fellow. Any girl would be proud of him as a husband. How can we restock the farm without his help? He's going to buy a tractor and a plough with his own money. You must let bygones be bygones."
" You're wasting your breath, Mother. I earned my living before, I can earn my living again. I hate him. I hate his vanity and his arrogance. I could kill him: his death wouldn't satisfy me. I should like to torture him as he's tortured me. I think I should die happy if I could find a way to wound him as he's wounded me."
" You're being very silly, my poor child."
" Your mother's right, my girl," said Perier. "We've been defeated and we must accept the consequences. We've got to make the best arrangement we can with the conquerors. We're cleverer than they are and if we play our cards well we shall come out on top. France was rotten. It's the Jews and the plutocrats who ruined the country. Read the papers and you'll see for yourself!"
" Do you think I believe a word in that paper? Why do you think he brings it to you except that it's sold to the Germans? The men who write in it-traitors, traitors. Oh God, may I live to see them torn to pieces by the mob. Bought, bought every one of them-bought with German money. The swine."
Madame Perier was getting exasperated.
" What have you got against the boy? He took you by forceyes, he was drunk at the time. It's not the first time that's happened to a woman and it won't be the last time. He hit vour father and he bled like a pig, but does your father bear him malice?"
" It was an unpleasant incident, but I've forgotten it," said Perier.
Annette burst into harsh laughter.
" You should have been a priest. You forgive injuries with a spirit truly Christian."
