The men make plans to go shooting the next morning. Veslovsky says he’s been to see Anna and that she and Vronsky are just fifty miles away. Levin interprets every innocuous move Kitty makes as being a sign of her love for Veslovsky. Later that night, in their bedroom, Kitty asks Levin why he’s so irritable, and his jealousy comes flooding out, but as soon as it does, he realizes how insane he sounds, and he and Kitty make up.
Even though Kitty has given him no reason for suspicion, Levin grows more and more jealous: any handsome stranger triggers old feelings of rivalry and frustration, especially because the stranger who has seen Vronsky recently, and “Vronsky” is always the magic word that sets Levin off into a tirade. However, Levin and Kitty communicate all their feelings so well that they can forgive each other.
