    Summary

    He thought it was ironic, in a terribly sinister, hideous way. He had been there to witness the events that made Jens – that made Fiedler - into what he was today. He had been there with his futile attempts to pull a broken little boy from the darkness. He should have tried harder.

    In a way, he had known it would always come this. Giving that brilliant mind time to grow, learn, hate – of course the next time George saw that little boy he would have to shoot him down.

    And yet, he could not make himself pull the trigger.

    *

    In 1941, George Smiley met a little boy called Jens Fiedler.

    Summary

    “Say thank you,” Fiedler said, licking his lips.
    “Thank you, Fiedler,” Hans said between uneven breaths. “Sir. Master,” he added, terrified of more retribution.
    Fiedler smiled again. “Good.” Leamas thought he saw the corners of Fiedler’s mouth twitch when Hans addressed him as ‘master’.

    Leamas watches Fiedler work.

    Summary

    “I love you.”

    A pause. “I don’t follow.”

    “I. Love. You.”

    Summary

    He sounded almost excited. “I needed to break him like this Alec – you can break his arm, and it will heal. Yes, it will take time and it will hurt. But this-” he motions to Leamas’ forehead, “once this breaks, you cannot heal it.”

    Wrapped in that lithe, slender frame, hidden behind that pretty, boyish face was a threat to the Circus that was all too frightening.

    Or, Leamas watches Fiedler interrogate a man for the first time.

    Summary

    After a week he began to feel almost normal. True, when the second night had come, and he found himself gripping the same slip hips in the throes of his dream, he had panicked. The third night, he began to expect it. By the end of the week, he could not decide which pleased him more: Fiedler on his back, or on his knees.

    Alec is not attracted to Jens. He most certainly is not.

    Summary

    Between their debates, and Jens’ philosophy, and Alec’s lack of philosophy, and that glorious, unused smile – he loses himself. In these moments, he is not the operator Leamas. There is no Circus, no Control, no post-war Germany. In these moments, there is Alec and Jens and some unspoken bond which ties them together irrevocably. Alec is taken with Jens’ sadness, his conviction, his self-doubt and his beauty.

    He does not think about it too much.

    Or, they one where Alec meets a stranger in a Berlin hospital. He does not expect to fall in love.

    Summary

    "Fiedler didn't seem the type of man who would condescend to the level of actually being physically attracted to anyone, but Leamas wondered if the look in his eye during Leamas’ questioning could be purely Fiedler’s thirst for knowledge. No. It had to be sexual desire. In Leamas’ experience it was always the sex."

    Alec Leamas has noticed something.
