The love of my life is back after 3 weeks of misery and silence (Paris, 1793):

"Maurice saw me appear in the doorway; with a smile on his face, he went toward me to kiss my hand. It was only then that he registered how much I had changed. On my side, I remarked with a fright how thin Maurice had become, and the alarming feverish light in his eyes. "So you are here, monsieur?" I said to him in a voice whose emotion I could not control. I had promised to toss him an indifferent, "Hello, citizen Maurice. Why have you made yourself so scarce?" The variant still sounded frosty to Maurice, and yet, what a difference between the two!...
