A la fenêtre intérieure, où il avait pris la place de Madame de Palençay auprès du terrible Idris, Sire Ogier, la corde au cou, dépouillé de sa robe blanche, assistait tout nu à l’adoube­ ment de sa tante : Idris, qui le tenait par l’extrémité de la corde, s’apercevant que Beauséant se cachait de moins en moins d’un trouble Le Baphomet 51 tout puéril, lui frôla les flancs avec le nœud de chanvre, susurrant à son oreille cet avertisse­ ment : — Gare si tu n’es chaste! Adoubée, au prix de sa pièce honorable, Valentine de Saint-Vit poussa un cri de rage : mais — n’était-il pas écrit qu’il n’atteindrait jamais l’âge d’homme?

A peine le Visiteur de l’Ordre avait-il pris congé du Commandeur, le Frère de Bois-Guil­ bert annonça que les troupes de la Sénéchaus­ sée avaient investi les bois de Palençay et de Saint-Vit; les cavaliers du Bailli après s’être avancés à distance respectueuse des murs de la Commanderie s’étaient repliés sans venir faire nulle sommation; que suivant les ordres du Commandeur toutes les forces disponibles étaient en place sur les enceintes, et qu’un petit 32 Le Baphomet nombre de Frères patrouillaient au-delà des douves.

Enfin il pensa s’accorder lui-même quelques heures de som­ meil, mais quand il se fut allongé, cet ultime renseignement l’excéda : dans quelle singulière occupation Malvoisie et Beauséant avaient-ils été interrompus pour que dans leur fuite préci­ pitée ils négligeassent de rien emporter ni ne songeassent à verrouiller cette porte ?
