To unite oneself with this shadow is to say yes to instinct, to that formidable dynamism lurking in the background.

B was his bachelor friend. She liked them both. Nevertheless it soon began to look as though she liked Mr. B a vast deal better. An intimacy quickly sprang up between them and before long there was talk of a possible engagement. Through her relations with Mr. B and through her friend she often came into contact with Mr. A, whose presence sometimes disturbed her in the most unaccountable way and made her nervous. About this time the patient went to a large party. Her friends were also there.

The cabman cracked his whip and swore; it was no good, she ran down the whole length of the road, which led across a bridge.
