When I had done, and had sealed and directed the two envelopes, I went back with the letters to Laura’s room, to show her that they were written.
“Has anybody disturbed you?” I asked, when she opened mbt shoes outlet the door to me.
“Nobody has knocked,” she replied. “But I heard some one in the outer room.”
“Was it a man or a woman?”
“A woman. I heard the rustling of her gown.”
“A rustling like silk?”
“Yes, like silk.”
Madame Fosco had evidently been watching outside. The mischief she might do by herself was little to be feared. But the mischief she might do, as a willing instrument in her husband’s hands, was too formidable to be overlooked.
“What became of the rustling of the mbt shoes online gown when you no longer heard it in the ante-room?” I inquired. “Did you hear it go past your wall, along the passage?”
“Yes. I kept still and listened, and just heard it.”
“Which way did it go?”
“Towards your room.”
I considered again. The sound had not caught my ears. But I was then deeply absorbed in my letters, and I write with a heavy hand and a quill pen, scraping and scratching noisily over the paper. It was more likely that Madame Fosco would hear the scraping of my pen than that I should hear the rustling of her dress. Another reason (if I had wanted one) for not trusting my letters to the post-bag in the hall.
Laura saw me thinking. “More difficulties!” she said wearily; “more difficulties and more dangers!”
“No dangers,” I replied. “Some little difficulty, perhaps. I am thinking of the safest way of putting my two letters into Fanny’s hands.”
“You have really written them, then? Oh, Marian, run no risks-pray, pray run no risks!”
“No, no–no fear. Let me see–what o’clock is it now?”
It was a quarter to six. There would be time for me to get to the village inn, and to come back again before dinner. If I waited till the evening asics gel I might find no second opportunity of safely leaving the house.
“Keep the key turned in the lock. Laura,” I said, “and don’t be afraid about me. If you hear any inquiries made, call through the door, and say that I am gone out for a walk.”
“When asics gel shall you be back?”
“Before dinner, without fail. Courage, my love. By this time tomorrow you will have a clear-headed, trustworthy man acting for your good. Mr. Gilmore’s partner is our next best friend to Mr. Gilmore himself.”
A moment’s reflection, as soon as I was alone, convinced me that I had better not appear in my walking-dress until I had first discovered what was going on in the lower part of the house. I had not ascertained yet whether Sir Percival was indoors or out.
The singing of the canaries in the library, and the smell of tobacco-smoke that came through the door, which was not closed, told me at once where the Count was. I looked over my shoulder as I passed the doorway, and saw to my surprise that he was exhibiting the docility of the birds in his most engagingly polite manner to the housekeeper. He must have specially invited her to see them–for she would never have thought of going into the libbary of her own accord. The man’s slightest actions had a purpose of some kind at the bottom of every one of them. What could be asics running shoes his purpose here?
It was no time then to inquire into his motives. I looked about for Madame Fosco next, and found her following her favourite circle round and round the fish-pond.
I was a little doubtful how she would meet me, after the outbreak of jealousy of which I had been the cause so short a time since. But her husband had tamed her in the interval, and she now spoke to me with the same civility as usual. My only object in addressing myself to her was to ascertain if she knew what had become of Sir Percival. I contrived to refer to him indirectly, and after a little fencing on either cheap asics running shoes side she at last mentioned that he had gone out.
“Which of the horses has he taken?” I asked carelessly.
“None of them,” she replied. “He went away two hours since on foot. As I understood it, his object was to make fresh inquiries about the woman named Anne Catherick. He appears to be unreasonably anxious about
