Daily Dose

From Chance, by Joseph Conrad


"What he was saying she did not quite follow.  He was speaking of comparatively indifferent things in a rather moody tone, but she felt it round her like a caress.  And when he stopped she could hear, alarming in the sudden silence, the precipitated beating of her heart."

From Part II, Chapter One
