C'est Deslauriers qui a besoin de moi, dit-il. 30 – Ah ! ton camarade ! fit Mme Moreau avec un ricanement de mépris. L'heure est bien choisie, vraiment ! Frédéric hésitait. Mais l'amitié fut plus forte. Il prit son chapeau. – Au moins, ne sois pas longtemps ! lui dit sa mère. 31 II Le père de Charles Deslauriers, ancien capitaine de ligne, démissionnaire en 1818, était revenu se marier à Nogent, et, avec l'argent de la dot, avait acheté une charge d'huissier, suffisant à peine pour le faire vivre.

Ils ne s'en aimèrent que davantage ; et les adieux furent pénibles, quand Deslauriers, l'année suivante, partit du collège, pour étudier le droit à Paris. Frédéric comptait bien l'y rejoindre. Ils ne s'étaient pas vus depuis deux ans ; et, leurs embrassades étant finies, ils allèrent sur les ponts afin de causer plus à l'aise. 37 Le Capitaine, qui tenait maintenant un billard à Villenauxe, s'était fâché rouge lorsque son fils avait réclamé ses comptes de tutelle, et même lui avait coupé les vivres, tout net.

Il loua un piano, et composa des valses allemandes. Un soir, au théâtre du Palais-Royal, il aperçut, dans une loge d'avant-scène, Arnoux près d'une femme. Était-ce elle ? L'écran de taffetas vert, tiré au bord de la loge, masquait son visage. Enfin la toile se leva ; l'écran s'abattit. C'était une longue personne, de trente ans environ, fanée, et dont les grosses lèvres découvraient, en riant, des dents splendides. Elle causait familièrement avec Arnoux et lui donnait des coups d'éventail sur les doigts.
