Chapter 5 Two men speak of love
Twelve months after the death of the Marquis in France, Charles Darnay had become a successful teacher of French in London.
He had known, when he came to London, that he would have to work hard to earn his living, and he was successful.
He was also in love.
He had loved Lucie Manette from the time when his life was in danger in the Old Bailey.
He had never heard a sound so sweet as her gentle voice；
he had never seen a face so beautiful as hers.
But he had never spoken to her about his love.
The death of his uncle in France had become, over the twelve months,
like a dream to him, but he had said nothing to Lucie of his feelings,
nor of what had happened. He had good reason for this.
But one day in the summer he came to Dr Manette's home in London.
He knew that Lucie was out with Miss Pross, and he had decided to speak to her father.
Dr Manette was now strong in body and mind,
and sad memories of his long years in prison did not come back to him often.
When Darnay arrived, the Doctor welcomed him warmly.
