Collage 528

The beginning of a change in Natasha:

"May the wounded stay in our house?" she asked...
Natasha calmly repeated her question, and her face and her whole manner, even though she went on holding her kerchief by the corners, were so serious that the major stopped smiling and, reflecting at first, as if asking himself to what extent it was possible, replied in the affirmative...
In the reception room she met her father, who had come home with bad news.
"We've sat ourselves out!" the count said with involuntary vexation. "The club's closed, the police are leaving."
"Papa, is it all right that I've invited the wounded into the house?" Natasha said to him. --p. 854 in P/V
