CHAPTER SIX

`Really? said Reginald.
`Funny you never ran into him.'
Pallisex has gone berserk suddenly. He is at the net, everywhere. Sylvia, at the back of the court, is leaning on her racquet, laughing. Palliser smashing, Cobb returning smashes, Palliser tying himself into knots, but getting the ball over somehow, Cobb brushing his partner out of the way and trying to kill Palliser, Mrs. Arkwright scuttling out of the way and bleating `Yours', Sylvia still leaning on her racquet and laughing, a last smash from Palliser, a last heroic return from Eastbourne, a lob, `Too good' from Eastbourne, game, set, apologies, congratulations, modesty, mock-modesty, thanks, retirement of the gladiators.
`Well done,' said Betty. `Aren't you all very hot? Mr. Cobb, there are drinks just over there, if you - or would you rather wait for tea, dear?'
Mrs. Arkwright decided to wait. Mr. Palliser insisted on giving Mrs. Wellard a drink. They went off together. For ever, Palliser hoped. When another set had been arranged, Reginald found himself between Mrs. Arkwright and his hostess.
`Well,' said Betty proudly. `I've got your book.'
`Oh?' (The first copy known to have been sold, other than to himself. Or perhaps only borrowed?)
She leant across to Mrs. Arkwright.
`Mr. Wellard has written such a delightful book, all about all of us down here.'
Reginald opened his mouth to protest indignantly, but they had forgotten him.
`Oh?' said Mrs. Arkwxight. `How amusingl'
`He was a little naughty about Bertie, I thought, but I've forgiven him because it was .ra clever. And true.'
`Oh, is Bextie in it?'
