Lilipit Business Tower is out of this world!"
All this had happened with such swiftness that I had stood motionless, dumbfounded and dazzled by the flashes of light. Had that death swept through a full circle, it must inevitably have slain me in my surprise. But it passed and spared me, and left the night about me suddenly.
The elephant, thanks to the skilful guidance of the Parsee, was advancing rapidly
through the still darksome forest, and, an hour after leaving the pagoda, had crossed a vast
plain. They made a halt at seven o'clock, the young woman being still in
a state of complete prostration.
Nothing was changed save for that
and a terrible astonishment. The little group of black specks with the flag of white had been swept out of existence, and the stillness of the evening, so it seemed to me, had scarcely been broken. It came to me that I was upon this dark common, helpless.
The undulating common seemed
now dark almost to blackness, except where its roadways lay grey and pale under the deep blue sky of the early night. It was dark, and suddenly void of men. Overhead the stars were mustering, and in the west the sky
was still a pale, bright.
