Mister Worldly-Wise is back in his world. He no longer lords it over the others; he greets them with gladness. But he is searching for Mistress Truth-on-Toe. She appears, and proudly he presents his benefactor to the others. Master Bring-the-Bag is welcomed in a new spirit by his master, who delights in his apprentice's skills. At last Mister Worldly-Wise is left alone with Mistress Truth-on-Toe, for-whom his gratitude is greater even than his love. Yet she must go, and he must learn to master himself in solitude, in a final bout of darkness. This he does, and terror is vanquished. He is joined by all, who wish to honour his progress, and to celebrate it. As Mister Worldly-Wise runs into the light, Master Bring-the-Bag prepares to take up his own burden in the same dispersing world.
