《劳拉》-142页

  哦,是的,的确是的,她肯定告诉她自己。不管怎么,她都会阻止他。除非她感觉良好!她的情况没法作出正常的反抗,可是她必须搞定这一切,否则,她会失去对她自己生活和运命的控制。卡巴顿带给她多么悲惨的命运呀!
  几分钟后,他们到了她父母家,爱德华帮助劳拉下车进屋。她受到母亲的热情迎接,而爱德华没有受到同样的问候,因为他是不请自到的。  
  ‘你父亲要单独见你,'莘济亚告诉劳拉,好奇瞅了一眼爱德华。‘对不起,索姆威勒先生,我记得没有邀请你留下来。'
  他茫然微微笑着。‘劳拉邀请了。欸,你不信吗?'
   劳拉瞵视着他。‘我没有。'
   他慢慢移动他的脚跟,在她的面前停顿了下来。‘你有的,直到周五早上,'他提醒她。‘我会看你的……亲爱的。'他俯身要用嘴唇蹭她的脸颊,可是她嗖地转过脸指责他,两双眼睛相遇,她蓝睛闪烁。  
  ‘等待你的会是警察。'
   ‘等待你的会是记者,'他轻轻反击道。  
  他把门带上,劳拉变得煞白。莘济亚扶她到沙发,帮她躺下。'卑劣的家伙!'他大声喊道,担忧着劳拉。'亲爱的,犯热病了吗?'
  ‘我感到不舒服,'劳拉闪烁其辞道。  
   ‘长途旅行后,那是当然的了。'她叫女佣取来湿布,轻轻盖在她的前额。‘可怜的宝贝。幸好你到家了。你父亲老是去银行,我寂寞的很。我担心在他的心目里我还不如银行。'

  Oh, yes, there was, she told herself firmly. She would stop him, somehow. If only she felt better! She was in no condition for a standing fight, but she must manage one, or she would lose control of her own life, and her fortune. What a terrible fate Cal had led her to!
  They arrived at her parents' home minutes later, and Edward helped Nora from the carriage and into the house. She was warmly welcomed by her mother, but there was no similar greeting for Edward, who made himself right at home without an invitation. 
  'Your father will be along directly,' Cynthia told Nora, glancing curiously at Edward. 'Excuse me, Mr. Summerville, I do not remember inviting you to stay.'
  He smiled vacantly. 'Nora did. Didn't you, my dear?'
 Nora glared at him. 'No, I did not.'  
 He got to his feet slowly and paused in front of her. 'You have until Friday morning,' he reminded her. 'I'll see you then...darling.' He bent to brush his lips over her cheek, but she jerked back accusingly, her blue eyes glittery as they met his.
  'I shall have the police waiting for you.'
 'And I shall have a reporter waiting for you,' he countered gently.  
  Nora was white when he closed the door behind him. Cynthia got her to the sofa and helped her to lie down. 'Vile man!' she exclaimed, fussing over Nora. 'Is it the fever, dear?'
  'I feel ill,' Nora hedged.  
 'No doubt, after that long trip.' She had the maid fetch a wet cloth and put it gently over her daughter's forehead. 'My poor darling. It is so good to have you home. It is lonely with your father away so much at the bank. I fear that it means more to him than I do.'
