Infected by their gaiety, the maid almost laughed too, but stood to one side to let them pass and just had time to see how the expressions on their faces changed at once and how they rushed down the corridor towards the crowd standing round the bathroom door. The husband, the brother-in-law, ran behind, his face terribly pale, one hand on the brother’s shoulder, as if trying to prevent him from seeing what he might see, or as if to hold on to him. This time the maid didn’t go back into the dining room, she followed them, quickening her step as if by assimilation, and when she reached the bathroom door, she again noticed, even more strongly this time, the smell of good cologne emanating from one or both of the gentlemen, as if a bottle of it had been smashed or as if one of them had suddenly begun to sweat and the smell was thus accentuated.
You lost your tongue? ” She was quite close now, she’d taken some ten or twelve steps across the esplanade, enough for her strident voice not only to be heard, but to begin to thunder round the room; enough too, I thought, for her to see me quite clearly, however short-sighted she was, and it therefore seemed certain that I was the person with whom she’d arranged this important meeting, the person who’d worried her with my lateness and had offended her by my silent vigil on the balcony, a vigil that continued to offend her.

The boy, who’d already seen quite enough, no doubt hung about for a good while in the dining room and then left without saying goodbye or taking with him the empty bottles, because hours later, when the melted cake was finally cleared away, wrapped in paper and thrown into the wastebin, a large part of it was found to be missing, although none of the guests had eaten any, and the wine glass belonging to the doctor’s wife was once again empty.
