    Summary

    I have often felt a need of having a woman in my confidence, and I should prefer her to another; but I can do nothing so long as she is not—what she needs to be (letter 54, trans. Dowson).

    The marquise’s growing impatience with Valmont and Danceny in the matter of the little Volanges inflames her own awareness of Cécile's charms.

    Summary

    The game is poker, of course; the cards heavy and ornate. You think them tacky, but you allow the Madame her illusion of wealth. This is one of the nights Cecile has fallen asleep almost immediately upon entering the parlour. Her dress is spilt over the chaise lounge, the diamonds her mother gave her glittering around her neck. You think of how the stones tether her here, to the people in this room, to the very cushions she slumbers upon. You almost pity her.

    Summary

    To begin with, you find Cecile endlessly irritating, in particular her endless amounts of wide eyed naivety that you find wearying. There is nothing more pervasively annoying than a young girl who does not know when to sit down and shut up. But then Cecile almost seems to come into her own. She gets curious, and attentive, and seems to thrive off the attention you deign to bestow upon her and there is nothing you enjoy so much as young girls being so adorably thankful. Cecile is the first girl of her age you have ever bothered with, but you do not think she will be the last if the game continues to play and thrive as it is.
