Sample text

Le Commandeur, déçu de ce que les pre­ mières péripéties n’eussent en rien modifié l’idée qu’il se faisait de la nature humaine, n’avait pas attendu les dernières pour quitter son observa­ toire secret. Il passa le reste de la journée en oraison dans sa chapelle et s’accusa en confes­ sion de mauvais regards, pendant que sur son ordre l’on murait la porte de l’oratoire dans la Tour de la Méditation. Le lendemain, au sortir de la Messe des défunts qu’il fit célé­ brer, il vint passer sa main sur la chaux encore humide et respira avec soulagement.

Or, la journée s’acheva sans autre inci­ dent; car l’on a su plus tard que dans tout le royaume les Baillis prévenus dès le vingt-deux Septembre de cette année 1 avaient reçu l’ordre de rester dans l’expectative jusqu’à l’aube du treize Octobre; en sorte que le Bailli de B. non seulement n’inquiéta pas la Commanderie de Saint-Vit après le coup de main de Bois-Guilbert sur Palençay, mais se contenta de faire signaler au Commandeur que des bandes de pillards ayant mis à sac le manoir et enlevé Madame de Palençay, force lui était d’occuper lesdits lieux.

Il allait vers l’autel quand, de derrière le tabernacle, il voit surgir les auxiliaires sarrasins : en deux files, ils vont à senestre et à dextre se ranger le long du pour­ tour de l’oratoire et les deux premiers se re­ joignent derrière le trône. D’autres émergent de l’ouverture entre les dalles et immobiles en interdisent l’accès. Malvoisie jette un regard vers la fenêtre inté­ rieure par le vitrail de laquelle des ombres se devinent dans la galerie. Un premier bruit de crécelle se fait entendre.
