The day after his conversation with Karenin, Stepan Arkadyevitch went to see her, and felt so youthful that in this jesting flirtation and nonsense he recklessly went so far that he did not know how to extricate himself, as unluckily he was so far from being attracted by her that he thought her positively disagreeable.
What made it hard to change the conversation was the fact that he was very attractive to her.
So that he was considerably relieved at the arrival of Princess Myakaya, which cut short their _tete-a-tete_.
"Ah, so you're here!" said she when she saw him.
" Well, and what news of your poor sister? You needn't look at me like that," she added.
