Getting over his initial shock he said to himself, "Ah ze young love ...ze spring time, ze air, ze flowers. c'est magnifique !!", and continued to watch remembering good times. Suddenly he drew in a gasp and said, "Mais... Sacre bleu!! Ze woman - she is dead!!", and he hurried along as fast as he could to the town to tell Albert, the police chief. He came, out of breath, to the police station and shouted, "Albert...Albert zere is zis man zis woman ... naked in farmer Gaston's field making love". The police chief smiled and said; "Come come Henri you are not so old remember ze young love, ze spring time ze air ze flowers Ah, L'amour! Zis is okay." "Mais non! You do not understand ze woman she is dead!!" Hearing this Albert leapt out from his seat and rushed out of the station, and the police car being serviced, he ran down to the field, confirmed Henri's story, and ran all the way back non-stop to call the doctor: "Pierre, Pierre, ... this is Albert I was in Gaston's field zere is a young couple naked 'aving sex " To which Pierre replied, "Albert, I am a man of science. You must remember, it is spring ze air ze flowers. Ah, L'amour! Zis is very natural" Albert, still out of breath grasped in reply, "NON, you do not understand ze woman, she is dead!" Hearing this Pierre shouted, "Mon dieu!", grabbed his black medicine bag, stuffed in his thermometer, stethoscope, and other tools and jumped in the car and drove like a madman down to Gaston's field. Upon getting there he gave the couple a full medical exam and drove back to Henri and Albert, who were waiting at the station. He got there, went inside, and smiled patiently at the two Frenchmen and said, "Ah, mes amis, do not worry. Ze woman, she is not dead. She is English."
