Alfred's visit to Victoria (continued from yesterday):

She opened the door and came outside.

   "Hello, Alfred. Welcome home."
   "Hello, Victoria."

   They shook hands and she let him hold on to her hand, while gently leading him to the wicker chairs around the porch table. "I'd rather sit out here, wouldn't you?"
   "Much rather," he said.
   "The other side, you can hear every word from the front room where Father is. These chairs aren't as comfortable, but this is more private."
   They made conversation until ten o'clock struck through the house....

   ....She stood near the edge of the porch. He went to her and put his arms around her and kissed her mouth. She freely allowed their bodies to come together while their mouths were pressed against each other. Then she began to breathe more deeply. Three times she breathed that way and he drew his head away and saw that her eyes were closed and she continued to take those deep breaths until he was afraid she had fainted. She opened her eyes, not all the way, and there was a sleepiness and a distant smile in them that he had never seen before in anyone's eyes, and that in Victoria's eyes made her momentarily unrecognizable. And this, he knew, was what he had so often heard about girls losing control of themselves...

   "I love you," he said.
