“He roared out his hideous challenge time and again. He beat upon his great chest with his clenched fists, and then he fell upon the body of Kala and sobbed out the pitiful sorrowing of his lonely heart. To lose the only creature in all his world who ever had manifested love and affection for him was the greatest tragedy he had ever known.

Upon her he had lavished, unknown to himself, all the reverence and respect and love that a normal English boy feels for his own mother.”
