CHAPTER THREE

`No pale yellow snap-dragons this year'? He did. And what does Edwards say? `Thought you'd like just a few.' It was always the way. Tell your cook you don't like onions, and she thinks you mean you don't like a lot of onions. Tell your gardener you don't like yellow snap-dragons, and he thinks you'd like just a few of them. We all hedge so much, we are all so afraid of committing ourselves, that when we hear a definite statement we suspect that there is some reservation attached to it.
Anyhow, she had read the book. What on earth can she have made of it?
He must find Sylvia and tell her. ..
Or not?
Well, what did it matter what she said, when she looked so lovely saying it?
He told Sylvia. `I say who do you think's read Bindweed? Old Mrs. Edwards.'
`Fancy!' said Sylvia. `I expect Mrs. Hosken told Edwards, and he bought it for her. He's a tremendous admirer of yours, really.'
Reginald looked at her fondly.
`I wish you'd always wear that dress,' he said.
`Do you like it, darling?'
`I love it. You look so utterly and adorably feminine.'
Sylvia looked at him, and dropped her eyes.
`Do you remember what you said in your dedication?' she said softly.
`Yes.'
`It was true, wasn't it?'
`Yes.'
She put up a hand and ruffled his hair.
`Almost time to get it cut again,' she said. `I think I'll come up with you, darling.'

CHAPTER THREE

`Oh do! What fun !'
'Friday?'
`Rather. Think of a good place for lunch.' And then after a pause, 'Well-' and he moved away.
No, damn it, not 'Well-' to Sylvia. Horrible. He came back quickly, kissed her, laughed and went off.
