CHAPTER TWELVE

there was over all an air of neglect and depression which began to affect Lizbeth.
Could Dr. Keen have left? she asked herself. Perhaps the house was empty? And then, even as she framed the question in her mind, she was certain it was not. She had a feeling, a strong, unmistakable conviction that someone was within. The windows were shuttered, the rooms must be in darkness, and yet someone must be listening.
She could not account to herself for her absolute certainty of this; but because she was so sure, she knocked again, and this time she raised her voice and called to the upper windows:
" Elita! Elita!"
The only answer was the whistling of the wind and the tap of the ivy; but again Lizbeth called:
" Elita, are you there? I want to speak with you."
Her voice sounded strange even to her own ears. As she waited, she heard the sound of a shutter being opened very softly. It was too dark to see clearly, but she felt sure that someone was looking out at her from the windows on the first floor; and now she called again:
" Elita! Elita!"
This time she was answered. The casement over the front door moved a few inches and Elita's voice, low and hoarse, asked:
" What do you want?"
" It is I, Lizbeth. I want to speak with you. Let me in."
Elita did not answer for a moment and Lizbeth had the feeling that she was contemplating a refusal. Hastily she called :
" Come down, Elita, I must speak with you. 'Tis of the utmost importance. There is no one with me."
" No one?" Elita questioned. "You are alone?"
" Yes, I am absolutely alone," Lizbeth answered. "Marry, can you not see there is no one here?"
She felt that Elita peered into the shadows to reassure herself; then the window was closed. After a few moments Lizbeth could hear footsteps on the stone floor of the hall and the chains and bolts being undone. After what seemed a long time the door was opened a few inches.
