Excerpt

cave la ligne convexe de sa panse, chose difficile, pour ne pas dire impossible.

L'aiguille allait toucher la quinzième minute: déjà l'impitoyable Jack balançait sa main pour lui donner plus de volée, et Geordie défendait son embonpoint par des croisements de bras plus compliqués que ceux de la Vénus pudique.

Par bonheur, le claquement de fouet de Little-John et le roulement de la berline vert-olive qui sortait de la cour vint mettre fin à cette situation embarrassante et pathétique. Jack laissa tomber sa main, Geordie se redressa.

--J'avais dit quinze minutes, exclama Geordie avec l'enivrement de la ponctualité satisfaite.

--Votre bedaine l'a échappé belle, dit Jack en montant dans la berline et en s'asseyant sans la moindre déférence sur les coussins de drap vert de Lincoln.

--Où allons-nous, maître? demanda le postillon.

--Sortons d'abord du village
