The story is following the version of The Fugitive that was read last week but it is more concise and as a result it feels more immediate.
Highlights from the next few pages
* Saint-Loup is dispatched to try to bring Albertine back but before going he expresses amazement that Albertine is the cause of all the problems
* Marcel continues to view the departure as a way of increasing the pressure to get more out of the relationship
* He gets asked to go to the police station to answer over charges of minor abduction - the girl he found at Albertine’s he invited back to his room – and despite his protests nobody takes him for being innocent
