Sa jeg. Kan De begripe det, svarte hun, min far var så smuk og min mor var en fuldkommen skjønhet, og min far seiret over min mor med storm. Men jeg blev halt. Edvarda så på mig. Lat os sætte os, sa hun. Vi satte os i lyngen. Vet du hvad min veninde sier om dig? begyndte hun. Du har dyreblik, sier hun, og når du ser på hende gjør du hende gal. Det er som om du berører hende, sier hun. En egen glæde flagret gjennem mig da jeg hørte dette, ikke for min skyld, men for Edvardas, og jeg tænkte: det er bare én som jeg bryr mig om, hvad sier denne ene om mit blik?

Tror De hun er en bondepike? De har truffet dette menneske her oppe i Nordland og har selv set det. Hun er et barn som har fåt forlite ris og en kvinde med mange luner. Kold? Frygt ikke derfor. Varm? Is, sier jeg Dem. Hvad er hun da? En liten pike på seksten, sytten år, ikke sandt? Men forsøk De bare å virke på denne lille pike og hun vil spotte al Deres møie. Selv farn får ikke bugt med hende; hun adlyder ham tilsynelatende, men regjerer i virkeligheten selv. Hun sier at De har dyreb l i k ___ De tar feil, det er en anden som sier at jeg har dyreblik.

Men nu i nattens timer har pludselig store, hvite blomster utfoldet sig i skogen, deres ar står åpne, de ånder. Og lodne tusmørkesværmere sænker sig ned i deres blade og bringer hele planten til å skjælve. Jeg går fra den ene til den andre blomst, de er berusede, det er kjønslig berusede blomster og jeg ser hvorledes de beruses. Lette fottrin, et menneskes åndedrag, et glad godaf­ ten. Jeg svarer og kaster mig ned på veien og omfavner de to knær og den fattige kjole. Godaften, Edvarda! sier jeg endnu en gang, utslitt av lykke.
