367 THE KING WITH TWO FACES CHAPTER I IN WHICH THE HERO IS EXPECTED OUR horses, saddled and bridled, stood ready. F Four loaded pistols lay on the table. A. had a book in his hand, but he was not reading. B. was writing a letter, but the regular scratching of his pen had ceased some time before. C., with his hands in his pockets, was trying to sit listlessly before the fire, but he was not sitting listlessly. D. had thrown himself on to the sofa and closed his eyes, but he was not asleep, Very lightly and slightly, apologetically, as it were, because his ears were tired of long listening with nothing to listen to, B.

And B. took up his pen again, while the speaker shut his eyes in the resolute manner of a person who widl not remain awake. The slow ticking of the clock seemed to each one of them like the beating of a hammer on a bare nerve. Yet, when at length it struck eleven, three out of the four started, for there is nothing so sudden as the arrival of a long-expected moment, In the interval 10 THE KING WITH TWO FACES between the first stroke and the eleventh, each man saw sharply defined before him a different picture- different and yet the same.

A. saw this picture on the open page of his book, B. on the blank sheet of letter-paper before him, C. in the glowing embers, D. on his own eyelids. When the last vibration of the last stroke had died away, the silence settled down again more leadenly than before.

Three out of the four men began to wonder where they would be this time to-morrow. It will not do, said B. abmptly. He ought to keeptime. He will keep time, said A. Hark D. started up and curled his hand over his ear. What Hush Its coming nearer. Thank Heaven cried B. You left the gate open Yes. And there are lights in the avenue Yes, yes. Unbar the door, somebody D.
