Au milieu de cet emblème funèbre, que tous portent à l. a. poitrine, se détache une orange transpercée d’une lance, avec cette inscription en lettres d’argent... AINSI TU SERAS.

Tout à coup, au second de los angeles cost, nos héroïnes relèvent l. a. visière de leur bassinet et armet, montrant ainsi à leurs profanateurs stupéfaits, leurs visages pâles et effrayants.

Littéralement tétanisés, incapables de réagir, persuadés qu’ils sont en face de fantômes, ils baissent leurs armes et dans un désordre indescriptible cherchent à fuir. »
