1 They burned into me, and my strength became like water.
2 I felt in my heart a wicked, burning desire that they would kiss me with those red lips.
3 Then Lucy took me upstairs, and showed me a room next her own, where a cozy fire was burning.
4 A tall man, thin and pale, with high nose and teeth so white, and eyes that seem to be burning.
5 Even the deep, burning eyes seemed set amongst swollen flesh, for the lids and pouches underneath were bloated.
6 The air seems full of specks, floating and circling in the draught from the window, and the lights burn blue and dim.
7 I fled, and felt somewhat safer in my own room, where there was no moonlight and where the lamp was burning brightly.
8 To-day he is a drawn, haggard old man, whose white hair matches well with the hollow burning eyes and grief-written lines of his face.

10 His waxen hue became greenish-yellow by the contrast of his burning eyes, and the red scar on the forehead showed on the pallid skin like a palpitating wound.
11 He held in his hand an antique silver lamp, in which the flame burned without chimney or globe of any kind, throwing long quivering shadows as it flickered in the draught of the open door.

14 First he took out a soldering iron and some plumbing solder, and then a small oil-lamp, which gave out, when lit in a corner of the tomb, gas which burned at fierce heat with a blue flame; then his operating knives, which he placed to hand; and last a round wooden stake, some two and a half or three inches thick and about three feet long.
