Example text

Ils ne s'étaient pas vus depuis deux ans ; et, leurs embrassades étant finies, ils allèrent sur les ponts afin de causer plus à l'aise. 37 Le Capitaine, qui tenait maintenant un billard à Villenauxe, s'était fâché rouge lorsque son fils avait réclamé ses comptes de tutelle, et même lui avait coupé les vivres, tout net. Mais comme il voulait concourir plus tard pour une chaire de professeur à l'École et qu'il n'avait pas d'argent, Deslauriers acceptait à Troyes une place de maître clerc chez un avoué.

La cuisinière annonça que le potage de Monsieur était servi. On se retira, par discrétion. Puis, dès qu'ils furent seuls, dans la salle, sa mère lui dit, à voix basse : – Eh bien ? Le vieillard l'avait reçu très cordialement, mais sans montrer ses intentions. Mme Moreau soupira. « Où est-elle, à présent ? » songeait-il. La diligence roulait, et, enveloppée dans le châle sans doute, elle appuyait contre le drap du coupé sa belle tête endormie. Ils montaient dans leurs chambres quand un garçon du Cygne de la Croix apporta un billet.

Les réminiscences trop nombreuses dont il s'aperçut le découragèrent ; il n'alla pas plus loin, et son désœuvrement redoubla. Alors, il supplia Deslauriers de venir partager sa chambre. Ils s'arrangeraient pour vivre avec ses deux mille francs de pension ; tout valait mieux que cette existence intolérable. Deslauriers ne pouvait encore quitter Troyes. Il l'engageait à se distraire, et à fréquenter Sénécal. Sénécal était un répétiteur de mathématiques, homme de forte tête et de convictions républicaines, un futur Saint-Just, disait le clerc.
