Jose Francisco Cardenai,
A chill shook him from head to
foot. He got up slowly, went to the
fireplace and carefully placed on the
fire the last log that remained in the
wood-house. Kneeling before the
hearth he was waiting for the wood
to catch fire; and when it started to
burn with lively leaping flames, he
arose and went back to stretch out
on the couch.
The afternoon had died away.
Through the wide window of the stu
dio began to enter the shades of
night — a cloudy, melancholy, gray
November night. The flames in the
fireplace, reflected on the wall, out
lined with a red glow the gilding of
the moulding, the showey color of the

A clock struck six, and at the last
stroke the door-bell vibrated with a
long, loud peal. He arose and went
to open the door.
“Who is it?’’
He opened. Outlined in the door
way appeared a feminine silhouette,
slender and graceful, enveloped in an
ample dark coat, the face half hid
den by a wide moleskin scarf.
For a moment he was undecided;
then, without a word he passed slow
ly through the narrow hall, reached
the studio, turned on a light, and
stood face to face with the visitor.
“What do you want? Why do you
She took off her scarf, put it across
her arm, thrust her hands into her
pockets, and said very quietly, “To
see you. I want to talk to you.”
“To me?” he replied with a harsh
vibrating voice which anger made
hoarse. “To me Why? After what
you told me thi^ morning, you have
nothing more to tell me. We no long
er have anything in common. For us
everything has ended. Go!”
She became very pale, bit her lips,
and answered sadly, “You are right.
I should not have' returned. When I
left this morning T did not expect to
come back. But later it grieved me to
think that you were alone, that you
would be suffering, and for that rea
son I have come.”
“What difference does it make to
you whether, I suffer?”
“If I did not care I would not
There was a long pause. He, more
tranquil, resumed, “But tomorrow?
.Do you think that I shall not suffer?
And the day after tomorrow, and the
next . . . and every day . . .?”
She seized his hands, “And I; do
you think that I am not suffering?
But what am I going to do? What
more shall we do than adapt our
selves to circumstances? I told you
so this morning. Think of my situa
tion. Until now I have had the for
tune of being a girl with honor; but
if I continue with this life, shall I
always be able to say the same? You,
who are an artist and live in art and
know the world better than I, tell me
how many honorable models have
passed through this shop? This life
is not for me; I do not feel it; I do
not like it; I fear it very much. An
occasion presents itself to free my
self, to assure the place of my fu
ture, and you reproach me for it like
an egoist. I find a man of means who
will marry me; this marriage is my
guarantee for being good, and you
throw it into my face like an evil.
You say it is because of affection. A
lie! You do not love me. If you loved j
me you would rejoice in my happi
“But is that man your happiness?”
“He is at least my peace. He will
not tell me, as you do, lovely things.
In his house I shall not earn money
to buy furs and silk dresses; but his
house will be my house and his money
mine—mine his joys and his sorrows.
This—this is true affection.”
“Not mine?” ' '
“I do not know. I have no com
plaint against you. You were always
good to me. When I came to your
studio the first time as a model I was
a child. You could have deceived me
and yet you always respected me. I
am very grateful to you. You have
paid attention to me, been gallant to
me, which I shall never forget. At
times I even think that you have loved
me, but your affection is not the love
“What did you expect of me?”
“It is very difficult to explain.”
“You yourself realize that I was
always good to you.”
“Yes, you were very good, kind,
lovable. But love does not live on
sweetness, gentleness, and kindness
alone. Love needs something more.
It is something else.”
“Did you want to marry me?”
“I never said anything to you
“But you thought it.”
“That is my business.”
“And you still think it—!”
“No, not now—”
“Yes, you still think it. You are
thinking about it right now. Do you

shuddered. A shiver shook her from
head to foot.
