Sorria, ouvindo Dionísio contar-lhe, orgulhoso como um sábio nos princípios da sua ciência, o que fizera na aula, o que o professor perguntara e as respostas que lhe dera. , o professor. E a alegria do pequeno foi imensa quando pôde, enfim, com verdadeiro conhecimento de causa, explicar à irmã, boquiaberta, por que ardera o palheiro. E assim, educando os filhos e administrando a propriedade, Maria Leonor viu passarem, iguais uns aos outros, os meses de Verão e, do mesmo modo, começar o Outono. Estava só em casa, além dos filhos e de Benedita.

Benedita, mortalmente aborrecida, nem ânimo tinha para as mandar calar. Pensava de novo em Viegas, que a convencera a dar aquele passo. Fora um sacrifício para si, mas falara! E a pobrezinha lá estava em cima, sabe Deus como! A este pensamento, não pôde impedir-se de se levantar e de subir a escada a correr para ver a ama. Riscou um fósforo e acendeu a vela metida na palmatória; olhou para dentro do quarto. Maria Leonor dormia ainda. Aquela noite foi a primeira, depois de muitas noites pavorosas, em que Maria Leonor dormiu sossegadamente, num sono só, sem pesadelos, sem aquelas horríveis cruzes que lhe caíam inexoráveis sobre a cabeça, como destinos que se cumprissem.

Baixou a voz, quase segredando: - E sabe, minha senhora? Desde que isso sucedeu, tenho pensado muitas vezes no caso e ainda não vejo mais do que via antes. Já me lembrei até de falar ao senhor prior, mas tenho-me acanhado e não me atrevi... Curiosa, Maria Leonor indagou: - Atreveste a quê? - A perguntar-lhe. Ora oiça, minha senhora. Agora que já está curada da sua doença e daquela prostração que a trazia consumada, posso falar-lhe destas coisas. A senhora acertou. Foi o doutor Viegas quem lembrou dizer à senhora o que sabe.
