CHAPTER TWELVE

week he was trying to remember what it had been like.
The supper itself had never seemed quite real. It had that lack of continuity so noticeable in one's dreams.
However, there were impressions which could be developed.
They had wondered whether to go to a play first or to wait quietly at home. If they went to a play first, then the question of `tidying up' arose. It seemed silly to come all the way back to Hayward's Grove for a wash and brush-up, yet where else could Sylvia go? But if they stayed at home with a book, then how still more silly to turn out sleepily at eleven o'clock just when they wanted to be going to bed ... Much discussion about that. In the end they went to a play.
The Ormsby house. Big, but, surprisingly, not grand. A long, low dining-room with a number of round tables - four? five? six? (what a bad detective he would make) - each table with six (eight?) people at it.
Lady Ormsby. Small, eager, rather wistful. (Eager to please.) A nice little face framed in pale brown hair with threads of grey. (Threads of grey. Bad. Cliche. But anyway I'm not a novelist, thought Reginald, so why bother whether it's good or bad. It's true.) Eager to please, but I don't mean nervously anxious; no, just wanting everybody to be happy; hoping eagerly, and rather afraid they won't, as if she had hoped so much once for herself, and now knew that it never happened.
Their arrival. Straight into the dining-room. About twenty people at the tables, eating and chattering, half the seats unfilled, no sign of Ormsby, Lady Ormsby
getting up to welcome them; rather wistfully, as if saying, `I can't get more enthusiasm into it, because I don't really know who you are, but you do under stand, don't you, and I hope you'll have a nice time.
