汇玩 Having thus spoken, and giving kinde welcome to the Messenger,secretly he called the Nurse unto him, whom hee heedfully examinedconcerning this case. She having heard the rebellion in the Kingdomeof Sicily; and understanding withall that Henriet was yet living,joyfully threw off all her former feare, relating every thing to himorderly, and the reasons moving her to conceale the whole businesse insuch manner as shee had done. Gasparino well perceiving, that thereport of the Nurse, and the message received from Conrado, varied notin any one circumstance, began the better to credit her words. Andbeing a man most ingenious, making further inquisition into thebusinesse, by all the possible meanes hee could devise; and findingevery thing to yeeld undoubted assurance, ashamed of the vile and baseusage wherein he had so long time kept the Lad, and desiring (by hisbest meanes) to make him amends, he had a beautifull daughter, agedabout thirteene yeares, and knowing what manner of man he was, hisFather Henriet also yet living, he gave her to him in marriage, with avery bountifull and honourable dowry.
娛樂場Constantine being seated at the Table, hee began (as oneconfounded with admiration) to observe her judiciously, affirmingsecretly to his soule that he had never seene so compleat a womanbefore; and allowing it for justice, that the Duke or any otherwhosoever, if (to enjoy so rare a beauty) they had committedtreason, or any mischeefe els beside, yet in reason they ought to beheld excused. Nor did he bestow so many lookes upon her, but hispraises infinitely surpassed them, as thinking that he could notsufficiently commend her, following the Duke step by step inaffection; for being now growne amorous of her, and remembrance of theintended warre utterly abandoned; no other thoughts could comeneerer him but how to bereave the Duke of her, yet concealing hislove, and not imparting it to any one.汇玩娛樂場汇玩
娛樂場While his fancies were thus amorously set on fire, the time came,that they must make head against the Prince, who already wasmarching with in the Dukes dominions: wherfore the Duke,Constantine, and all the rest, according to a counsel held among them,went to defend certaine of the Frontiers, to the end that the Princemight passe no further. Remaining there divers dayes together,Constantine (who could thinke on nothing else but the beautifulLady) considered with himself, that while the Duke was now so farrefrom her, it was an easie matter to compasse his intent: Hereupon, thebetter to colour his present returne to Athens, he seemed to besurprized with a sudden extreame sicknesse, in regard whereof (bythe Dukes free license, and leaving all his power to his CosenEmanuel) forthwith he journyed backe to Athens. After someconference had with his sister, about her dishonourable wrongs enduredat his hands onely, by the Lady, he solemnly protested, that if shewere so pleased, hee would aide her powerfully in the matter, bytaking her from the place where shee was, and never more afterward, tobe seene in that Country any more.汇玩汇玩娛樂場娛樂場The Dutchesse being faithfully perswaded, that he would do thisonely for her sake, and not in any affection he bare to the Lady,answered, that it highly pleased her; alwayes provided, that itmight be performed in such sort, as the Duke her husband shouldnever understand, that ever she gave any consent thereto; whichConstantine sware unto her by many deepe oaths, whereby she referredall to his owne disposition. Constantine heereupon secretly preparedin a readinesse a subtile Barke, sending it in an evening, neere tothe Garden where the Lady resorted; having first informed the peoplewhich were in it, fully what was to be done. Afterwards, accompaniedwith some other of his attendants, he went to the Palace to theLady, where he was gladly entertained, not onely by such as waytedon her, but also by the Lady her selfe.汇玩娛樂場Leading her along by the arme towards the Garden, attended on by twoof her servants, and two of his owne; seeming as if he was sent fromthe Duke, to conferre with her: they walked alone to a Port opening onthe Sea, which standing ready open, upon a signe given by him to oneof his complices, the Barke was brought close to the shore; and theLadie being sodainly seized on, was immediately conveyed into it;and he returning backe to her people, with his sword drawne, said: Letno man stirre, or speake a word, except he be willing to loose hislife: for I intend not to rob the Duke of his faire friend, but toexpell the shame and dishonor that he hath offered to my Sister: noone being so hardy as to returne him any answer. Aboord wentConstantine with his consorts, and sitting neere to the Lady, whowrung her hands, and wept bitterly; he commaunded the Mariners tolaunch forth, flying away on the wings of the winde, till about thebreake of day following, they arrived at Melasso. There they tookelanding, and reposed on shore for some few dayes, Constantinelabouring to comfort the Lady, even as if she had bene his owneSister, shee having good cause to curse her infortunate beauty.
汇玩娛樂場Going aboord the Barke againe, within few dayes they came toSetalia, and there fearing the reprehension of his father, and leastthe Lady should be taken from him; it pleased Constantine to makehis stay, as in a place of no meane security. And (as before) aftermuch kinde behaviour used towards the Lady, without any meanes inher selfe to redresse the least of all these great extremities, shebecame more milde and affable, for discontentment did not a jot quaileher.汇玩详情
