A feeling of mutual attraction immediately springs up between them. Remembering her desire for a live pheasant, he is about to trap one when he is confronted by a gamekeeper. In his attempt to wrest the bird from Vanni, the gamekeeper is mortally wounded. Hardly had Vanni presented Minerva with the gift, when two officers appear with a warrant for his arrest on the charge of murder.
