  她耷下眼凝视着地板。‘此时,我爱他胜过爱我自己的生命,'她踌躇说。
     ‘哦,如果你不再爱他了,这孩子对你不是很重要的,'他微笑着解释。
    她哆嗦着。‘我不会爱背叛我的男人!'  
  ‘欸,憎恨是爱的一部分。不要太担忧了。适当吃点,好好休息,'他严肃地补充道,收好他的医药箱。‘你现在很憔悴。'
  ‘这热病……'
  他转过身。‘也许会复发的,'他说。‘但是即使复发,也不会要命的。你会学会生活的,就象从巴拿马和古巴染上和你的类似病的那些人一样生活着。亲爱的,在美国南部大部分地区,都有可能染上疟疾,因为那里的蚊子都带有疟原虫。我已经看过很多病例了。你会活下去的,我向你保证。你吃奎宁了吗?'
  ‘哦,吃了,'她愁苦说道。‘头两次复发后,我吃了,可是吃了奎宁,我不舒服。奎宁……会伤害孩子吗?'
  他微笑着摇摇头。‘当然不会的。现在,要多休息。晕船药会有些帮助的。'  
   ‘谢谢,医生。'  
    他拍拍她的肩。‘我希望我可以做更多的事。晚安,玛露小姐。'
   她看着他走去,双眼疲倦得很。他很好,至少他对治疗热病还是提出了希望。可是对于卡巴顿的孩子她能做什么呢?她不可能一晚上就解决那个问题。

  She dropped her gaze to the floor. 'At the time, I loved him more than life itself,' she said hesitantly.
  'My dear, if you did not still love him, the child would not be so precious to you,' he commented with a smile.
  She was shocked. 'I could not love a man who betrayed me!'
  'Alas, hatred is part of love. Try not to worry too much. And eat properly and get enough rest,' he added sternly, closing his medical bag. 'You are delicate now.'
  'The fever...'  
  He turned. 'It may recur,' he said. 'But even if it does, it will not be fatal. You will learn to live with it, as many men did who came back from Panama and Cuba similarly infected. My dear, it is possible to contract malaria even in the southernmost parts of the United States where mosquitoes carry the plasmodia. I have seen more cases of it than I can remember. You will survive, I promise you. Do you take quinine?'  
  'Oh, yes,' she said miserably. 'After the first two attacks, I had to, but it makes me uncomfortable. It…will not harm the baby?'  
  He smiled and shook his head. 'Of course not. Now, try to get some rest. The seasick potion should help somewhat.'  
 'Thank you, Doctor.'  
He patted her shoulder. 'I wish that I could do more. Good night, Miss Marlowe.'  
  She watched him go with tired eyes. He was kind, and he did at least have hope to offer about the fevers. But what would she do about Cal's child? That was a problem she couldn't solve in the course of one night.
