He had never entered her room before. Why had he come to-night? A sudden hope shot warmly through her heart, and the blood began to rise in her face; then it died away again, for as he came forward into the light of the softly shaded lamp, she saw his face and noted its haggard and stern expression.

He felt an almost irresistible impulse to rise from his place, take her in his arms, and carry her to some place where he could say to her, You are my wife; you belong to me; you shall not separate yourself from me any longer.
