The silence was impenetrable. And he was more alone than if he had never had a compan­ ion. He forced himself out of the embrace that had held him prisoner up to now and stretched out on the bed again. Another ring now encircled his left ankle, a finely wrought ring that was attached by a larger one to the young man's leg. Because of this hindrance his position was still uncom­ fortable, but he hardly noticed. He listened impatiently as his companion tried to revive the conversation by giving a report on the house.

He was not as lively as he was when he had come before. He was like a man who has ful­ filled his duty and devoted all his strength to it. Thomas had the impression that now he could easily enter into a conversation with him. He hesitated. What questions could he ask? What explanations could he hope for? Was not everything quite clear from a certain point of view? He turned to look at his companion, who in turn stared at him with frightened eyes. Such sad looks. It was as if he were contemplating his very self in his solitude and abandonment.

They resembled each other very closely, though they had done every­ thing they could to distinguish themselves. They all wore a number in the buttonholes of their jackets, and as if that were not enough, there was on each of their sleeves a thin white band with several words written on it. Thomas would have liked to decipher the inscription, but they never ceased to move around in a display of feverish activity. Hardly were they over the threshold when they let out a great cry, at once sharp and deep, and threw themselves on his companion, who was just then beginning to throw the covers off.
