Vi spaserer side om side bortefter veien. Hvad synes du, bærer jeg mig ad således som du liker det? sier hun. Kanske snakker jeg formeget? Ikke? Ja men du skal si hvad du synes. Stundom tænker jeg ved mig selv at dette aldrig kan gå v e l ___ Hvad er det som ikke skal gå vel? spør jeg. Dette med os. At det ikke kommer til å gå vel. Enten du tror det eller ikke så går jeg her og fryser nu; det isner mig nedover ryggen bare jeg kommer indtil dig. Det er av lykke. Ja i like måte, svarer jeg, det isner også gjennem mig bare jeg ser dig.

Storartet! skrek jeg og hostet av latter skjønt jeg ikke var det ringeste beruset. Edvarda lot også til å være henreven. Da gjæsterne gik stak jeg mig ind i det lille sideværelse og satte mig til å vente. Jeg hørte det ene farvel efter det andre ute på trappen. Doktoren tok også avsked og gik. Snart døde alle stemmer hen. Mit hjærte slog hæftig mens jeg ventet. Edvarda kom ind igjen. Da hun så mig blev hun et øieblik forundret stående, derpå sa hun smilende: Jaså, De er der. Det var venlig av Dem å vente til sist.

Vi sang og talte. Korholmerne lå utenfor øerne, det tok en god 40 stund å ro dithen og imens talte vi med hverandre fra båterne. Doktoren var iført lyse klær, likesom damerne; jeg hadde aldrig set ham så fornøiet før, han snakket med, han var ikke længer en stille tilhører. Jeg fik det indtryk at han hadde drukket litt og var glad. Da vi kom iland la han et øieblik beslag på selskapets opmærksomhet og bød os velkommen. Jeg tænkte: Se, Edvarda har utkåret ham til vært. Med den høieste grad av elskværdighet underholdt han sig med damerne.
