متن انگلیسی فصل
The entrance to the Roi Galant was in a corner of the roulette room. The night club was small and dark. A band - guitar, piano and drums - was playing in a corner. Bond and Vesper sat at a table near the door. Bond ordered a bottle of champagne and a breakfast of eggs and bacon.
They sat and listened to the music for a time. Then Bond turned and looked at Vesper.
‘It’s wonderful to be with you,’ he said. ‘The job is finished, and it’s a lovely end to the day.’
He expected her to smile, but she didn’t.
‘Yes, it is,’ she said. She looked nervous.
‘Maybe it’s because I was cool to her earlier this evening,’ Bond thought.
He drank champagne and talked about the day. He spoke about Mathis and Leiter, Le Chiffre and SMERSH.
‘I’ve telephoned Paris from the hotel,’ Vesper said. ‘I’ve left a message for M about the game.’
This was all she said. She drank her champagne and did not look at Bond. Bond was disappointed. He drank a lot of champagne and ordered another bottle. They ate their eggs and bacon silently.
At four o’clock, a waiter came to the table.
‘I have a note for Miss Lynd,’ he said.
He gave Vesper a piece of paper. She read the note quickly.
It’s from Mathis,’ she told Bond. ‘He wants me to meet him at the Casino entrance hall. He’s got a message for you. He’s probably not wearing evening clothes and he doesn’t want to come in. I’ll only be a minute or two. Then perhaps we can go home.’ She smiled quickly. ‘I’ve not been very friendly tonight. I’m sorry. It’s been a difficult day.’
‘It’s OK; said Bond. ‘I’ll pay the bill.’
Bond watched her walk to the entrance, then he lit a cigarette. He was suddenly tired. He called for the bill and took a last drink of champagne.
As he drank, Bond wondered about the note to Vesper. It seemed strange. Why hadn’t Mathis asked them both to come to the Casino entrance hall?
Something was wrong.
Bond paid the bill and walked quickly through the gaming room. He looked up and down the long entrance hall.
No Vesper. No Mathis.
He ran to the entrance. The night air was cold.
Suddenly, he heard a small cry and the sound of a car door closing. Then a Citroen raced out of the wide entrance gate. As he watched, Bond saw someone throw something small and black from one of the windows. It fell into the flowers by the gate. Then the Citroen raced towards the coast road.
Bond ran to the gate. He picked up Vesper’s black evening bag from amongst the flowers. Inside was the note. It read: Can you come to the entrance hall for a moment?
I have news for Bond.
It was not Mathis’s writing.
Bond ran to his car.
