《劳拉》-114页

   梅利看来有些放松了。"就这些!"她笑了。"我瞎想了。我们快回去吧!我们告诉妈妈,就说我们遇到了暴风雨,是一起到茅屋躲避的,就这样。"  
  劳拉满眼泪水,模糊得看不清了。"梅利,你太好了。"  
   "对我,你不会是同样的吧?"她逗着。   
   劳拉没有回答她不是那样残酷的。她望着卡巴顿驾驶的那辆车消失在雨中,她们掉了头,走另外一条路。  
  她们返回的时候,她没有说她要离开农场,因为担心失去所发生的事。梅利说着她们编造的谎话,而她换了衣服,飞快跑过来,苦笑着。她看上去是老样子,幸运的是,那雨没有使她受凉。可是内心里,她伤心死了。  
  一夜没睡,第二天早晨,在客厅里,她和姨妈商量着事。  
   "我不想提那事,可是梅利说过我妈来了一封信,是邀请我拜访欧洲亲戚的,"她说。   
   海伦不好意思而微笑了。"对,是有的。在此之前,我应该告诉你的,可是我犹豫了,这会给你一个借口,好离开我们。自从你来到这里,梅利真是快乐及了。"  
  "这次旅行,我感到很愉快,"劳拉答道,又露出了微笑。"可是要被引见到宫廷……!"说到引见的事,她显出极大的热忱和思慕。  

 Melly visibly relaxed. "Is that all!" she laughed. "I am ashamed of my first thoughts. We must get home right away! We will tell Mama that we were caught in the storm and sheltered together in the cabin, just in case." 
  Nora's eyes blurred with tears. "You are so kind, Melly."
 "Would you not do the same for me?" she teased.
 Nora didn't reply that she wasn't that cruel. She watched the buggy Cal was driving vanish into the rain and they turned and went the other way. 6
  She didn't speak about her need to leave the ranch when they returned, for fear of giving away what had happened. She changed clothes while Melly told the lie they had concocted, and she came back out neat as a pin and smiling through her pain. She looked the same as always, and fortunately the rain had not caused a chill. But inside, she felt dead.
  The next morning, after a sleepless night, she approached her aunt in the sitting room. 
 "I should not mention it, I suppose, but Melly said that I had received an invitation to visit relatives in Europe through my mother," she began.
 Helen smiled sheepishly. "Yes, you did. I should have told you before now, but I hesitated to give you an excuse to leave us. Melly has been so much happier since you came."
  "I have enjoyed my visit," Nora replied, and smiled back. "But to be presented at court...!" She let her deliberate enthusiasm speak for itself.
