CHAPTER TWELVE

Introductions at Lady Ormsby's table, and Sylvia dropped there. Reginald guided to another table - a string of names - how d'you do, how d'you do - departure of Lady Ormsby - Reginald sits down.
A girl on his left in pale green, dark, sulkily beautiful, mechanically listening to her other neighbour, her thoughts elsewhere. A girl on his right, determined to be pretty, talking with all the assurance of a pretty girl, talking with all the assurance of the life and soul of her circle, obviously not pretty at all, yet giving the air of one who was accepted in her circle as pretty.
`Good lord, not the Mr. Wellard?'
`The cricketer?' said Reginald. `No, I'm afraid not.;
'My dear man, do I look as if I hoped you were a cricketer? You wrote Bindweed.. Confess it.'
`Have you read it?'
`He asks me if I've read it!' .
`Well, you'd have to pretend now, wouldn't you?'
`Definitely. And then you would never know. The uncertainty would gnaw at your vitals. It is the vitals they gnaw at, isn't it?'
`I believe so.'
`I suppose you've come here for copy for your next book. We are rather a menagerie. Well, do your worst, we're not afraid. Only do give me black hair. I've always wanted black hair.'
`Of course you'll have black hair,' said Reginald. `And then when I'm accused of libelling you, I shall say, `I wasn't tbinking of her - she's got fair hair!" '
`Oh, definitely,' said Fair Hair.
And so on. Always the faint assumption that her personality was impressing itself on her companion; the assumption that any exchange of thought must have this personal reference to her.
