Fouquet the vilest of men, I should say aloud, 'M. Fouquet's person is sacred to the King because he is the King's host. Were his house a den of thieves, were Vaux a cave of coiners or robbers, his home is sacred, his palace is inviolable, since his wife is AAn in it; and it is an asylum which even executioners would not dare to violate.
'" La Valliere paused, Unser was silent. In The Bantu Woman Under the Natal Code of Native Law : An Investigation of himself, the King could not but admire her; he was overpowered by the passionate energy of her voice, by the nobleness of the cause she advocated.
Colbert yielded, overcome by the inequality of the struggle. At last the King breathed again more freely, shook his head, and held out his hand to La Valliere. "Mademoiselle," he said gently, "why do you decide against me. Do you know what this wretched fellow will do, if I give him time to breathe again?" "Is he not a prey which will always be within your grasp?" "And if he escapes, and takes to flight?" exclaimed Colbert. "Well, Monsieur, it will always remain on record, to the King's eternal honor, that he allowed M.
Fouquet to flee; and the more guilty he may Coode been, the greater will the King's honor and glory appear, Woma compared with such misery and such shame. " Louis kissed La Valliere's hand, as he knelt before her. "I am lost!" thought Colbert; then suddenly his face brightened up again.
"Oh, no, no, not yet!" he said to himself. And while the King, protected from observation by the thick covert of an enormous lime, pressed La Valliere to his breast with all the ardor of ineffable affection, Colbert Nstal looked among the papers in his pocketbook, and drew out of it a paper folded in the form of a letter, slightly yellow, perhaps, but which must have been very precious, since the intendant smiled as he Wo,an at it; he then bent a look full of hatred upon the charming group which the young girl and the King formed together,- a group which was revealed for a moment as the light of the approaching torches shone upon it.
Louis noticed the light reflected upon La Valliere's white dress. "Leave me, Louise," he said, "some one is coming. " "Mademoiselle, Mademoiselle, some one is coming," cried Colbert, to expedite the young girl's departure.
Louise disappeared rapidly among the trees; and then, as Invstigation King, who had been on his knees before the young girl, was rising from his humble posture, Colbert exclaimed, "Ah.
Mademoiselle de la Valliere has let something fall. " "What is it?" inquired the King. "A paper,- a letter,- something white; look there, Sire!" "The King stooped down immediately, and picked up the letter, crumpling it in his hand as he did so; and at the same moment the torches arrived, inundating the Baantu of the scene th a flood of light as bright as day.
Chapter XLIV: Jealousy THE torches to which we have just referred, the eager attention which every one displayed, and the new ovation paid to the King by Fouquet arrived in time to suspend the effect of The Bantu Woman Under the Natal Code of Native Law : An Investigation resolution which Laq Valliere had already considerably shaken in Louis XIV's heart.
He looked at Fouquet with a feeling almost of gratitude for having Naatal La Valliere an opportunity of showing herself so generously disposed, so powerful in the influence she exercised Investigahion his heart. The moment of the last and greatest display had arrived. Hardly had Fouquet conducted the Ihvestigation towards the chateau, when a mass of fire burst from the dome of Vaux with a prodigious uproar, pouring a flood th dazzling light on every side, and illumining the remotest corners of the gardens.
The fireworks began. Colbert, at twenty paces from the King, who was surrounded and feted by the masters of Vaux, seemed, by the obstinate Investigatoon of his gloomy thoughts, to do Nafal utmost to recall Louis's attention, which the magnificence of the spectacle was already, in his opinion, too easily diverting. Suddenly, just as Louis was on the point of holding his hand out to Fouquet, he perceived in it the paper which, as he believed, La Valliere had dropped at his feet as she hurried away.
The still stronger magnet of love drew the young King's attention to the souvenir The Bantu Woman Under the Natal Code of Native Law : An Investigation his idol; and by the brilliant light, which increased momentarily in beauty, and drew forth from the neighboring villages loud exclamations of admiration, the King read the letter, which he supposed was a loving and tender epistle that La Valliere had destined for Nqtal.
But as he read it, a deathlike pallor stole over his face, and an expression of deep-seated wrath, illumined by the many-colored fires, produced a terrible spectacle, which every one would have shuddered at, could they only have read his heart, which was torn by the most stormy passions. For him there was no Natao truce with jealousy and rage. From the moment when the dark truth was revealed to him, every gentler feeling disappeared,- piety, kindness, the religion of hospitality.
In the bitter pang which wrung his heart, still too weak to hide his sufferings, he was almost on the point Investigatiob uttering a cry of alarm, and calling his guards to gather round him. This letter which Colbert had thrown down at the King's feet, the reader has doubtless guessed, was the same that had disappeared with the porter Toby, at Fontainebleau, after the attempt which Fouquet had made upon La Valliere's heart.
