1 They communicated across Gregor's room.
2 Meanwhile, it had become very quiet in the next room.
3 He moved very gradually, as if there had been some secret prohibition on leaving the room.
4 His father looked hostile, and clenched his fists as if wanting to knock Gregor back into his room.
5 He was merely fixed on the idea that Gregor should be got back into his room as quickly as possible.
6 His room, a proper human room although a little too small, lay peacefully between its four familiar walls.
7 In the room on his right there followed a painful silence; in the room on his left his sister began to cry.
8 So Gregor did not go into the room, but leant against the inside of the other door which was still held bolted in place.
9 Then he looked uncertainly round the living room, covered his eyes with his hands and wept so that his powerful chest shook.
10 But he had the impression that some hurried steps and the sound of the door leading into the front room being carefully shut had woken him.
11 Across the room, despite the chilly weather, Gregor's mother had pulled open a window, leant far out of it and pressed her hands to her face.
12 But as if in gruff reply to this question, the chief clerk's firm footsteps in his highly polished boots could now be heard in the adjoining room.
13 It was only when he had reached the entrance hall that he made a sudden movement, drew his foot from the living room, and rushed forward in a panic.
14 Then his father gave him a hefty shove from behind which released him from where he was held and sent him flying, and heavily bleeding, deep into his room.
15 He had first to slowly turn himself around one of the double doors, and he had to do it very carefully if he did not want to fall flat on his back before entering the room.
16 He's made a little frame, for instance, it only took him two or three evenings, you'll be amazed how nice it is; it's hanging up in his room; you'll see it as soon as Gregor opens the door.
17 If Gregor had only been allowed to turn round he would have been back in his room straight away, but he was afraid that if he took the time to do that his father would become impatient, and there was the threat of a lethal blow to his back or head from the stick in his father's hand any moment.
