With a face like stone, the father left his daughter's room and went to the kitchen. He took a long knife out of a drawer and stabbed it into his heart. Once, and again a second time. Some time later, a servant found the lifeless body in a vast pool of blood. The count was buried together with his daughter next to his wife.
