Part 4, Chapter 14

  • After she has a god cry against the tree, Tereza begins the walk back down Petrin hill.
  • She longs for the man with the rifle to come back. Since Tomas can't help her, someone else will have to help her.
  • The closer she gets to the city, the more she fears seeing Tomas, whom she has disappointed. She feels physically sick.
