All the doors
and windows, including those of the lumber-room at the end of the 'right' gallery --as I had rapidly assured myself--were strongly secured.
He opened the doors
, entered a step or two, and came back almost instantly with a rigid face.
One curious fact I discovered as I watched his thoughts was that the outer doors
are manipulated by telepathic means.
But after a few days spent almost entirely out of doors
she wakened one morning knowing what it was to be hungry, and when she sat down to her breakfast she did not glance disdainfully at her porridge and push it away, but took up her spoon and began to eat it and went on eating it until her bowl was empty.
A comforting thought succeeded it: that both doors
were locked and that really there was no danger.
"There are only two doors
in my room, the Louis-Philippe room of which I told you, Raoul; a door
through which Erik comes and goes, and another which he has never opened before me and which he has forbidden me ever to go through, because he says it is the most dangerous of the doors
, the door
of the torture-chamber!"
"As I told you, everything can be attained, Porthos women and doors

When he had issued his instructions relative to every other part of the building, and the mob were dispersed from end to end, and busy at their work, he took a bundle of keys from a kind of cupboard in the wall, and going by a kind of passage near the chapel (it joined the governors house, and was then on fire), betook himself to the condemned cells, which were a series of small, strong, dismal rooms, opening on a low gallery, guarded, at the end at which he entered, by a strong iron wicket, and at its opposite extremity by two doors
and a thick grate.
The glare showed a series of stone steps, which ended in a low-lying heavy iron door
fixed against the side of the house.
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door
. "'Tis some visiter," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door
-- Only this, and nothing more."
