Thérèse Raquin Chapter 15

By Émile Zola

Chapter 15

  • Laurent visits the shop every few days to check in on Mme Raquin, who considers Laurent a hero for trying to save Camille's life. Ha. Hahaha. 
  • Michaud and Grivet soon decide to revive their regular Thursday get-togethers at the Raquin shop. And when they do, they find that Laurent is already there. 
  • Olivier and Suzanne appear soon afterward. 
  • They all sit down at the table together to play dominoes. One happy little murderous, treacherous family. Aw. 
  • When the game commences, Laurent's eyes meet Thérèse's from across the table. This is the first time they have dared to look at each other directly since the day of the murder.
