" How splendidly I shot this bird! Didn't I? Well, shall we soon be getting to the real place?" The horses started off suddenly, Levin knocked his head against the stock of someone's gun, and there was the report of a shot.

The gun did actually go off first, but that was how it seemed to Levin.

It appeared that Vassenka Veslovsky had pulled only one trigger, and had left the other hammer still cocked.

The charge flew into the ground without doing harm to anyone.
