At that distance they accordingly stood, fixed there by the centrifugal force of the repugnance which the mystic symbol inspired.
Wherever her walk hath been—wherever, so miserably burdened, she may have hoped to find repose—it hath cast a lurid gleam of awe and horrible repugnance round about her.
