Why, man, she has loved you all the time! She loves you still. There was never a woman in the world loved a man as Esmeralda loves you鈥濃攂oth men stared at him; he was hot with eagerness and indignation鈥斺渁nd always has loved you.

You wait, and hear me, as I鈥檝e heard you鈥攁nd I鈥檝e had hard work not to burst in or howl aloud. What you said is true enough as far as a certain point. I did love Esmeralda. I own it; I鈥檓 proud of it! I did ask her to be my wife, but she refused; and quite right, for there was a better man鈥攜ou鈥攚aiting for her. I don鈥檛 know how you heard that I proposed to her.鈥
