Mlle Vinteuil had long gone out of my brain: the identify of Léa had introduced again to me, reviving my jealousy, clone of Léa on the on line casino with the 2 women. For I held in my reminiscence in basic terms remoted, incomplete sequences of Albertines, silhouettes, snapshots; my jealousy used to be for this reason focussed on a selected, intermittent expression, either elusive and glued, and at the those that had prompted it to seem on Albertine’s face. I remembered how she have been at Balbec, whilst the 2 ladies, or different ladies in their sort, regarded too hard and long at her; I remembered how I had suffered to work out her face raked by means of their eyes, as motive as a painter’s whilst he desires to make a cartoon; it used to be totally coated by way of them, yet, due to my presence doubtless, it underwent this touch with out seeming to note, with a passivity which might be hid a mystery excitement. And ahead of she recovered her wits and spoke to me, only for a moment Albertine didn't flow, stood smiling at not anything particularly, with a similar glance of feigned naturalness and hidden excitement as though she were being photographed, or maybe have been attempting to undertake a extra beautiful pose for the digicam – as she had performed once we have been jogging with Saint-Loup at Doncières, guffawing and licking her lips, as though she have been teasing a puppy. definitely at those moments she was once under no circumstances just like whilst it used to be she who was once attracted to a few passing lady. if so, her slender, velvety gaze mounted at the passer-by, caught to her, so gluey and corrosive that you simply felt it is going to no longer have the capacity to detach itself with out elimination a patch of dermis. yet at this second that exact glance, which not less than gave her expression a seriousness which made her look virtually sick, could were welcome to me, in comparison to the clean, satisfied expression which her face took on whilst the 2 women have been there, and that i may have most well-liked the sombre expression of hope which she might be occasionally felt herself, to the smiling glance attributable to the need she encouraged in others. It was once in useless that she attempted to veil her recognition of it: the data bathed her, enveloped her in a mist of delight, made her face rosy with satisfaction. yet all of the emotions that Albertine held in suspension inside herself at those moments, even though they radiated round her and made me undergo so extraordinarily, who may possibly inform no matter if, in my absence, she may proceed to suppress them: no matter if, as soon as i used to be long past, she wouldn't reply boldly to the 2 ladies’ advances? definitely, those thoughts triggered me a lot discomfort. They have been like an entire admission of Albertine’s tastes, a common confession of her unfaithfulness, opposed to which not anything may hold any weight: Albertine’s person supplies, a lot as i wished to think them, the damaging result of my incomplete enquiries and the assurances, probably concocted in collaboration with Albertine, of Andrée. Albertine may well deny specific betrayals, yet via phrases that she permit slip, which contradicted those declarations, by way of those very seems, she had published what she may have so much desired to cover, even more than any one truth: what she could have permit herself be killed instead of admit: her sexual tastes.
