So as not to awaken suspicion! Rich. Then your return without him, and his entry, it was all a stratagem? You fixed it up between you? M arie-L. Yes, Richard. Rich. Ah! A pause. And you thought it all out then and there, this comedy? M arie-L. I planned it while Gondoin was talking. His mistake gave me a chance of safety--yes--at the price of another crime.

Your calm, your repose--M arie-L. I hoped that he would do me this service. Rich. You didn't have time to ask him to do you a service. No!

I love you! Rich. You love me and more
