        • The Countess threw her diamond brooch through the ice of a frozen pond: 'Dive in and fetch it for me.'
      • The Countess was bare as a bone and the girl furred and booted
      • The girl picks a rose; pricks her finger on the thorn; bleeds; screams; falls.
        • The Count... thrust his virile member into the dead girl
          • The Countess... watched him narrowly
            • Then the girl began to melt.
              • There was nothing left of her but... a blood stain, like the trace of a fox's kill on the snow
        • When she (the Countess) touched it, she dropped it. 'It bites!' she said.
