1 A woman came running down the front steps and coughed.
2 A few steps behind her were Mr. Bartell D'Arcy and Miss O'Callaghan.
3 Every step brought him nearer to London, farther from his own sober inartistic life.
4 He took a step to the door and seized the walking-stick which was standing behind it.
5 Corley remained standing at the edge of the path, a little distance from the front steps.
6 He lifted up the counter and, passing by the clients, went out of the office with a heavy step.
7 Gabriel had known her when she was a child and used to sit on the lowest step nursing a rag doll.
8 His broad figure hid hers from view for a few seconds and then she reappeared running up the steps.
9 They talked for a few moments and then the young woman went down the steps into the area of a house.
10 They were walking quickly, the young woman taking quick short steps, while Corley kept beside her with his long stride.
11 Mrs. Malins was helped down the front steps by her son and Mr. Browne and, after many manoeuvres, hoisted into the cab.
12 They stood or ran in the roadway or crawled up the steps before the gaping doors or squatted like mice upon the thresholds.
13 We followed him with our eyes and saw that when he had gone on for perhaps fifty paces he turned about and began to retrace his steps.
14 We waited to see whether she would remain or go in and, if she remained, we left our shadow and walked up to Mangan's steps resignedly.
15 But he could hear little save the noise of laughter and dispute on the front steps, a few chords struck on the piano and a few notes of a man's voice singing.
16 The other, who walked on the verge of the path and was at times obliged to step on to the road, owing to his companion's rudeness, wore an amused listening face.
17 He longed to ascend through the roof and fly away to another country where he would never hear again of his trouble, and yet a force pushed him downstairs step by step.
