THE UNCONQUERED

"And what is there wrong about that?" asked Madame I'erier angrily. "Hasn't he done everything he could to make amends? Where would your father have got his tobacco all these months if it hadn't been for him. If we haven't gone hungry it's owing to him."
" If you'd had any pride, if you'd had any sense of decency,
you'd have thrown his presents in his face." "You've profited by them, haven't you?" "Never. Never."
" It's a lie and you know it. You've refused to eat the cheese he brought and the butter and the sardines. But the soup you've eaten, you know I pu~ the meat in it that he brought; and the salad you ate tonight, if you didn't have to eat it dry, it's because he brought me oil."
Annette sighed deeply. She passed her hand over her eyes.
" I know. I tried not to, I couldn't help myself, I was so hungry. Yes, I knew his meat went into the soup and I ate it. I knew the salad was made with his oil. I wanted to refuse it, I had such a longing for it, it wasn't I that ate it, it was a ravenous beast within me."
" That's neither here nor there. You ate it."
" With shame. With despair. They broke our strength first with their tanks and their planes, and now when we're defenceless they're breaking our spirit by starving us."
" You get nowhere by being theatrical, my girl. For an educated woman you have really no sense. Forget the past and give a father to your child, to say nothing of a good workman for the farm who'll be worth two hired men. That is sense."
Annette shrugged her shoulders wearily and they lapsed into silence. Next day Hans came. Annette gave him a sullen look, but neither spoke nor moved. Hans smiled.
" Thank you for not running away," he said.
" My parents asked you to come and they've gone down to the village. It suits me because I want to have a definitive talk with you. Sit down."
