THE TEMPERING

A pause. A horrified silence. "What?" says Hands. "What? Do you mean to tell me that I'd do that? Me? Me, Hands? Why, you ... What, me? Turn nark? Turn informer? Rat? Me? Oh my pal? On my pal Crowne? Or on any man, let alone Crowne? You.. . ?"
Old Silence replies: "Listen a moment, Sergeant Hands. We were imagining a case. Still imagine that the Nazis came to power here."
" Well?"
" You've got a daughter." "Two."
" And a son?"

" And if a Nazi official threatened to send your girls to a Ilouse, for the entertainment of German soldiers, or workers? And to do some terrible things to your sons? You'd do anything on earth to stop that, wouldn't you? You'd consider your daughters and sons more important than your old pal, wouldn't you?"
With a strange touch of tenderness, the savage Sergeant Crowne says: "Hands. I wouldn't bear you any grudge if you turned me in to save your kids. I'd see your point, and we'd still be pals."
