Waiting for Anatol
"He has come..."
"I have scarcely breathed so that Life should not leave its trace and that nothing might change in me that you loved".
Oh no! It is not he! I do not know him! I never have seen him! Have him put out of the house"!
"Under the Willow Tree"
"What is there I do not know? Could I have been wrong for twenty years"?
"Love has a bitter core, Anatol, but let me taste this bitterness with you".
"Could everyone be as blind as I was not to see the sorrow on her face"?
"And you, you must surely know something. But, oh, no, you will not speak".
"Why must the greatest sorrows come from those we most love"?
"Now that I am married and going to Paris, who knows when we shall see each other again"!
"I have willed the house to you; but do not tell Anatol, please".
"Please, no tear! Come in the sleigh with us, my friend, we shall drop you in the village".
and "Mother" dismisses Vanessa one last time!
