CHAPTER TEN

`It's rather a divine tune,' said Sally. `Anybody know its name?'
`Gracious, no,' said Betty.
`Sizilietta.'
`How much?' asked the Unknown Young Man.
`Fancy your remembering, Bertie. What is it again?'
`Sizilietta,' grunted Baxter. He walked round with a box of cigars; then lit one for himself, giving it all his attention.
`Tell us about her,' said Sally.
`Sally, you're the limit.'
`Is it a story, Bertic? You've never told me, have you?'
`Yes to the first, Betty, and No to the second. I've never told anybody.' And then after a pause. `There's nothing to tell.'
`Please Mr. Baxter,' said Lady Effingham.
`I shan't be jealous, Bertie. You know I never am.'
`I say, that sounds bad,' said the Unknown Young Man.
`Don't be silly, Claude,' said Betty sharply.
Claude and Sally, thought Reginald. Now I know everybody.
`There's nothing to be jealous about. Who ever married the girl he first fell in love with? I mean first thought he was in love with. Bridge, Sir Roger?'
`Aren't we to have the story?'
`Please!' said Sylvia.
`It isn't what you'd call a story, Wellard. Just - oh, nothing. Do you really -? Oh, well. It's a silly story.' He lay back in a chair and puffed at his cigar.
If only people would stop drinking just at this point, thought Reginald. Just where Baxter is now. Just at the point where you have lost nothing but self-consciousness.
