亚游 When the King perceyved that Madame Pampinea had ended herdiscourse, he sat sadly a pretty while, without uttering one word, butafterward spake thus. Little goodnesse appeared in the beginning ofthis Novell, because it ministred occasion of mirth; yet the endingproved better, and I could wish, that worse inflictions had falne onthe venerious Friar. Then turning towards Madam Lauretta, he said;Lady, do you tell us a better tale, if possible it may be. Shesmiling, thus answered the King: Sir, you are over-cruelly bentagainst poore Lovers, in desiring, that their amourous processionsshould have harsh and sinister concludings. Neverthelesse, inobedience to your severe command, among three persons amourouslyperplexed, I will relate an unhappy ending; whereas all may be saideto speede as unfortunately, being equally alike, in enjoying the issueof their desires, and thus I purpose to proceed.
亚游Upon this immodest meditation, and his purpose quite altered whichhe came for; he went neerer to her, and very kindly began to comforther, desiring her to forbeare weeping: and (by further insinuatingspeeches) acquainted her with his amorous intention. The Maide, whowas made neither of yron nor diamond, and seeking to prevent one shameby another, was easily wonne to the Abbots will, which caused him toembrace and kisse her often.ag亚游黑吗亚游
亚游Our lusty young novice Monke, whom the Abbot imagined to bee gonefor wood, had hid himselfe aloft upon the roofe of the Dorter,where, when he saw the Abbot enter alone into the Chamber, he lost agreat part of his former feare, promising to himselfe a kinde ofperswasion, that somewhat would ensue to his better comfort; butwhen he beheld him lockt into the Chamber, then his hope grew toundoubted certainty. A little chincke or crevice favoured him, whereathe could both heare and see, whatsoever was done or spoken by them:so, when the Abbot thought hee had staide long enough with theDamosell, leaving her still there, and locking the doore fastagaine, hee returned thence to his owne Chamber.亚游ag亚游黑吗亚游Within some short while after, the Abbot knowing the Monke to bein the Convent, and supposing him to be lately returned with the wood,determined to reprove him sharpely, and to have him closelyimprisoned, that the Damosell might remaine solie to himselfe. Andcausing him to be called presently before him, with a very stearne andangry countenance, giving him many harsh and bitter speeches,commanded, that he should be clapt in prison.亚游亚游The Monke very readily answered, saying. My good Lord, I have notyet beene so long in the Order of Saint Benedict, as to learne all theparticularities thereto belonging. And beside Sir, you never shewedmee or any of my Brethren, in what manner we young Monkes ought to usewomen, as you have otherwise done for our custome of prayer andfasting. But seeing you have so lately therein instructed mee, andby your owne example how to doe it: I heere solemnely promise you,if you please to pardon me but this one error, I will never failetherein againe, but dayly follow what I have seene you doe.
亚游亚游The Abbot, being a man of quicke apprehension, perceived instantlyby this answere; that the Monke not onely knew as much as he did,but also had seene (what was intended) that hee should not. Wherefore,finding himselfe to be as faulty as the Monke, and that hee couldnot shame him, but worthily had deserved as much himselfe; pardoninghim, and imposing silence on eithers offence: they convayed thepoore abused Damosell forth of their doores, she purposing (neverafter) to transgresse in the like manner.亚游详情
