THE KITE

glad to get rid of the cup. "I expect they have their meals in the kitchen," she said to herself. Then Herbert lit a cigarette.
" Give us a fag, Herb," said Betty. "I'm simply dying for a smoke."
Mrs. Sunbury didn't approve of women smoking, but she only raised her eyebrows slightly.
" We prefer to call him Herbert, Miss Bevan," she said.
Betty wasn't such a fool as not to see that Mrs. Sunbury had been doing all she could to make her uncomfortable, and now she saw a chance to get back on her.
" I know," she said. "When he told me his name was Herbert I nearly burst out laughing. Fancy calling anyone Herbert. A scream, I call it."
" I'm sorry you don't like the name my son was given at his baptism. I think it's a very nice name. But I suppose it all depends on what sort of class of people one is."
Herbert stepped in to the rescue.
" At the office they call me Bertie, Mum."
" Then all I can say is, they're a lot of very common men."
Mrs. Sunbury lapsed into a dignified silence and the conversation, such as it was, was maintained by Mr. Sunbury and Herbert. It was not without satisfaction that Mrs. Sunbury perceived that Betty was offended. She also perceived that the girl wanted to go, but didn't quite know how to manage it. She was determined not to help her. Finally Herbert took the matter into his own hands.
" Well, Betty, I think it's about time we were getting along," he said. "I'll walk back with you."
" Must you go already?" said Mrs. Sunbury, rising to her feet. "It's been a pleasure, I'm sure."
" Pretty little thing," said Mr. Sunbury tentatively after the young things had left.
" Pretty my foot. All that paint and powder. You take my word for it, she'd look very different with her face washed and without a perm. Common, that's what she is, common as dirt."
