Example text

Robespierre leans toward her. ” 25 26 Emma grows quite pale. She answers with an effort. “I—I’m afraid one of my three uncles has the necklace. Or had it for a while. I don’t know which uncle, and I don’t know what he did with it—if anything! ” “That remains to be seen,” says Robespierre grimly. ” “Mother never told me. ” Robespierre snorts in derision. “A likely story.

Beautiful gardens stretch out on either side of you. “Robespierre must be quite rich,” you say. “Don’t misunderstand the meaning of these luxurious surroundings,” answers Emma. “Robespierre is only a guest here. ” you ask. “In a hovel, no doubt,” Emma says. “He lives only for his ideals. 23 It’s said he cares little for anything else—even food or the company of friends.

And what is that forbidding-looking castle looming behind you? Another lightning flash reveals a wooden ship bobbing uncontrollably on top of the waves.
