"That's god-father's signal when he wants me in the Yard," she cried.

"No," I said, "to-day it's for me. We fixed it."

"Does he want you?"

"Yea, to tell me about his discovery."

"Then I'll come too."

"He doesn't expect you, Berangere."

"Yes, he does; yes, he does."

She opened the door an inch or two. I insisted:

"Don't do it, Berangere! It will only vex him."

"Do you really think so?" she said, wavering a little.

"I'm positive of it, because he asked me and no one else. Come, Berangere, be sensible."

She hesitated. I went through and closed the door upon her.
