CHAPTER THIRTEEN

That's the husband, I suppose, he thought. I'd almost forgotten about him.
`His lordship is keeping well, I hope,' said Mr. Hopkins, returning with a bale or two.
`Very fit, thank you.'
`We shall be getting another inch off the waist, perhaps, in the spring. I shall look forward to that. Now, Mr. Wellard, here is a material which will make up very well. Not too adventurous and yet at the same time cheerful. How do you feel about it, Lady Edgemoor? Mr. Wellard would look nice in that, I think?'
Lady Edgemoor was in no great hurry to decide. Mr. Hopkins, smiled upon by her ladyship, was in no great hurry for a decision. Reginald was in less hurry than either of them. They examined roll after roll...
`I suppose,' said Reginald.when at last they came out, it would be quite ridiculous to ask you to have. tea with me somewhere.'
Coral Bell looked at him with a sudden smile.
`You see the point,' he said. `If it isn't ridiculous, then you'll come, which would be heavenly; and if it is, then you'll burst, so I shall have that anyway. Any hope?'
She shook her head doubtfully.
`It looks as though you lose both ways. I should like to come, but I've promised to go and see Lady Collingbourne. Do you know her?'
`I told you I didn't know anybody.'
`Then we can't run her down together. Or anybody else. So what could we possibly talk about if I did come to tea?'
`You will?' he cried eagerly. `Bless you.'
`I don't meet an old admirer every day.'
`Nonsense, you're always meeting them.'
They had tea at Stewaxts, and never stopped talking.
