For Whom the Bell Tolls Chapter 7
Robert Jordan welcomes a trembling María into his sleeping bag, calling her "little rabbit." They confess their love. She tells him she does not know how to kiss, and insists that she must learn. He holds her with a tight-chested loneliness. He asks her if she has loved others, and she says that things were done to her by others, and is ashamed. He tells her that if they make love, it will be as if the others had never been. He tells her she is his woman. He asks her if she wants to make the others disappear; she fiercely says yes.
