The Return of Chorb
He passed in reverse through all the spots they had visited together during their honeymoon journey (9).
Nighttime, though, was unendurable. Night imbued with sudden terror her irrational presence (9).
Now he knew what must be done. His quest, however, lasted a long while: This was a quiet and chaste town, and the secret by-street where one could buy love was unknown to Chorb. Only after an hour of helpless wandering, which caused his ears to sing and his feet to burn, did he enter that little lane—whereupon he accosted at once the first girl who hailed him (20).
