PART II - CHAPTER X

Now I saw that she had been too long alone. I reproached myself that I have loved my son too well and that his father's tenderness had comforted me too deeply and too long. It had been many days since I came to visit her. How could I rouse her and divert her thoughts? I took my son and placing him on his fat legs, I folded his little hands and made him bow before her. I whispered to him :
" `Thy honoured Old One'-say it, child! "
" Old one!" he lisped, staring at her unsmiling.
I told you that she had not seen him since his third month, and you know, My Sister, how he is altogether beautiful! Who could resist him? Her eyes fell on him and lingered. She roused herself. She went to the gilded cupboard and took out a red lacquered box. She opened it, and within were tiny cakes covered with sesame seed. These she gave to him, filling his hands. When he saw them he laughed aloud, and she indulged him with faint smiles and said :
" Eat, my little lotus-pod ! Eat, my little meatdumpling !"
Seeing her thus momentarily diverted, I picked up the book and poured a bowl of tea from the pot on the table, and presented it to her in both my hands.
