Excerpt

rmi les femmes penchées sur le lit de la jeune fille.

L'une d'elles, pâle d'émotion, affirmait avoir senti le corps tressaillir sous sa main, et les autres soutenaient qu'elle s'était trompée... On allait bien voir, au surplus.

Il y eut vingt secondes d'une indicible angoisse, vingt secondes solennelles, pendant lesquelles chacun retint sa respiration... Et enfin un même cri d'espérance et de joie s'échappa de toutes les poitrines:

--Elle a tressailli!... Elle a bougé!...

Il n'y avait pas à douter ni à nier, cette fois! L'infortunée avait eu un mouvement, bien faible il est vrai, à peine sensible, mais enfin un mouvement...

Un peu de sang remontait à ses joues blémies, sa poitrine se soulevait par saccades, ses dents, convulsivement serrées, se desserraient, et sa bouche s'entr'ouvrant, on la voyait tendre le col en avant, cherchant instinctivement de l'air.
