THE UNCONQUERED

were doing all three of them scampered upstairs. The harsh light of the winter afternoon cast over the shabby furniture, the iron bed, the cheap wardrobe, the chest of drawers, a dismal squalor. There was no one in the room.
" Where is she?" screamed Madame Perier. She ran into the narrow passage, opening doors, and called the girl's name. " Annette, Annette. Oh, what madness!"
" Perhaps in the sitting-room."
They ran downstairs to the unused parlour. An icy air met them as they opened the door. They opened the door of a store room.
" She's gone out. Something awful has happened."
" Hew could she have got out?" asked Hans sick with anxiety.
" Through the front door, you fool."
Perier went up to it and looked.
" That's right. The bolt's drawn back."
" Oh, my God, my God, what madness," cried Madame Perier. " It'll kill her."
" We must look for her," said Hans. Instinctively, because that was the way he always went in and out, he ran back into the kitchen and the others followed him. "Which way?"
" The brook," the old woman gasped.
He stopped as though turned to stone with horror. He stared at the old woman aghast.
" I'm frightened," she cried. "I'm frightened."
Hans flung open the door, and as he did so Annette walked in. She had nothing on but her nightdress and a flimsy rayon dressing-gown. It was pink, with pale blue flowers. She was soaked, and her hair, dishevelled, clung damply to her head and hung down her shoulders in bedraggled wisps. She was deathly white. Madame Perier sprang towards her and took her in her arms.
" Where have you been? Oh, my poor child, you're wet through. What madness!"
But Annette pushed her away. She looked at Hans.
" You've come at the right moment, you."

THE UNCONQUERED

"Where's the baby?" cried Madame Perier.
" I had to do it at once. I was afraid if I waited I shouldn't have the courage."
" Annette, what have you done?"
" I've done what I had to do. I took it down to the brook and held it under water till it was dead."
Hans gave a great cry, the cry of an animal wounded to death; he covered his face with his hands, and staggering like a drunken man flung out of the door. Annette sank into a chair, and leaning her forehead on her two fists burst into passionate weeping.
