The selvas had often interrupted di Leyni with exclamations of surprise and indignation.
She and Signorina d'Arxel, wishing to surprise the selvas, had forbidden him to tell.
Probably she was not staying in the selvas' very small lodging, but was at some hotel in Subiaco.
I wished to speak to you when we were on our way to the selvas', but you were in haste to be there, and so it was not possible.
The girl opened her eyes wide on perceiving the selvas, but the man kept his closed.
"The selvas told me you lived in the Veneto," the Padre added.
The selvas and di Leyni joined the group of people who were waiting for them in the avenue of orange-trees.
He said he would also send him the young girl who was with the selvas.
The selvas themselves were captivated by the fascination of this woman, so superior, so beautiful, so gentle and sad.
At first the meetings had been held at the selvas' apartment, in Via Arenula.
