The heavy clash of the closing door echoed through the silent house. Long after the actual sound of it was still ed it echoed and echoed again in Lant's ears. Fordyce had freed him self, had shaken off his shackles and stood his own man again. He had ]:aid his debt once, and no one could with justice expect him to pay it a secmd time. He would dance? to Lant's piping no more. Lant might do his worst, and be damned to him* For long after Fordyce had left him Lant sat absolutely still, his brain so active that no energy seemed left for his body.
