Avec de brusques emballements, vite réprimés qu'accompagnaient des lueurs dans les yeux comme des feux d'onyx. Puis soudain, il semblait, très vite, que los angeles jeune femme eût le sentiment de s'être trahie, les cash de sa bouche s'abaissaient, les lèvres devenaient tremblantes, enfin tout cela s'achevait par un sourire, et l. a. word commencée s'interrompait, laissant à un geste gauche de l. a. major le soin de terminer une pensée audacieuse, dont tout dans ce maintien s'excusait maintenant."
