A CASUAL AFFAIR

went because I wanted to see what she was like," said Mrs. Low.
" She's a very able woman," I said.
" I dare say she is. She hadn't an idea who we were when the butler man announced us, but she remembered at once. `Oh, yes,' she said, `you're poor Jack's friends. Do go and find yourselves seats where you can see. You'll adore Lifar, he's too marvellous: And then she turned to say how d'you do to the next people. But she gave me a look. She wondered how much I knew and she saw at once that I knew everything."
" Don't talk such nonsense, darling," said Low. "How could she know all you think she did by just looking at you, and how could you tell what she was thinking?"
" It's true, I tell you. We said everything in that one look, and unless I'm very much mistaken I spoilt her party for her."
Low laughed and I smiled, for Mrs. Low spoke in a tone of triumphant vindictiveness.
" You are terribly indiscreet, Bee."
" Is she a great friend of yours?" Mrs. Low asked me.
" Hardly. I've met her here and there for fifteen years, I've been to a good many parties at her house. She gives very good parties and she always asks you to meet the people you want to see."
" What d'you think of her?"
" She's by way of being a considerable figure in London. She's amusing to talk to and she's nice to look at. She does a lot for art and music. What do you think of her?"
" I think she's a bitch," said Mrs. Low, with cheerful but decided frankness.
" That settles her," I said.
" Tell him, Arthur."
Low hesitated for a moment.
" I don't know that I ought to."
" If you don't, I shall."
" Bee's got her knife into her all right," he smiled. "It was rather a bad business really."
