  ‘我得了热病,在肯尼亚旅行时,给蚊子咬的,'她困惑告诉他。'他们说我得的是黑水热,开始会呕吐和没有食欲。'  
  ‘你得这热病,有多长时间了?'  
   她告诉了他。
  ‘嗯,有多长时间了……做那蠢事?'  
   她也如实告诉了他。  
   他温厚微笑。‘哦年轻人,我想黑水热不会使你困惑了。我必须叫护士帮我给你检查一下。'  
  ‘不要,求你了,'她祈求道。‘我不想让其他人知道。会有损我家人的……名誉!'
    他嘘了口气。‘我们生活在一个何种的社会里,年轻人,人类是多么的愚昧?好吧,我能单独做检查,如果你容许我做的话?'  
   她点点头。‘当然喽。'  
   检查完后,他显得十分尴尬,他迟疑了是否要告诉她。在水池旁,他盘桓洗着手,慢慢把手擦干,然后转过身。  
  ‘我很遗憾,'他轻轻说。‘怀孕了。'

  'And how long ago was this…ahen…indiscretion?'
  She told him that, too.  
  He smiled gently. 'My dear young woman, I fear that blackwater fever is going to be the least of your worries. I must get my nurse to assist me while I examine you.'  
  'No, please,' she pleaded. 'I don't' want anyone else to know. My family...the disgrace!'
  He let out a long sigh. 'What sort of a world do we live in, young woman, where being human is such a crime? Very well, I can do the examination alone, if you will permit me?'
  She nodded. 'Of course.'
 It was embarrassingly thorough, and when he finished, he was resigned and reluctant to tell her. He lingered over washing his hands in the basin and drying them before he turned.
  'I am sorry,' he said quietly. 'But there is going to be a child.'  
 She sat rigidly on the edge of the bed. Her first impulse was to panic, to jump overboard, to…Then she thought of a tiny black head suckling at her breast, and such a wave of love and joy swept through her that tears stung her blue eyes.
