lf, with grief and terror recalling her past. She was perfectly devoted to her pupils, understood the significance of her activity in a broad sense, discharged it in a thoroughly competent manner, and had won general interest and sympathy for herself among the managers of the school. But she was coughing with a dry, suspicious cough, an ominous flush burned on her sunken cheeks, and her gray eyes held much melancholy. Her married life with uneasy Gríshka was taking effect.
But he had dropped his wife, and it was now the third year 杭州水疗会所排名 since he had annoyed her. He sometimes made his appearance in N., but did not show himself to Matréna. He was “on the tramp,” as she defined to me his manner of life.
I succeeded in making his acquaintance. I found him in one of the dives of the town, and after two or three sittings, he and I became friends. After repeating to me the story which his wife had told me, he meditated for a little while, and then said:
“So you see, Maxím Savvátievitch, it raised me up, and then dashed me down. So I never performed any heroic deed. Even to this day, I long to distinguish myself in some way…. I’d like to mash up the whole earth into dust or assemble a gang of comrades and kill off all the Jews … down to the very last one! Or, in general, something which would set me up above all men, and so that I could spit on them from a 杭州桑拿按摩爽记 height…. And say to them: ‘Akh, you reptiles! Why do you live? How do you live?
