The Hour of the Devil

The Hour of the Devil
by Fernando Pessoa

Translated from A Hora Do Diabo


They left the station, and when she reached the street, she saw with amazement that she was in the very street where she lived, a few steps from home. Stopped. Then he turned back to express his astonishment to his companion; but behind it no one came. It was the street, lunar and deserted, nor was there a building in it that could be or appear to be a train station.
