CHAPTER FOURTEEN

ever their husbands had been, but with presumably less knowledge of what it was about. Wednesday's supper, which began with cold mutton, tomatoes and a re-statement of the case for the younger Stoker, in as far as Jane could remember whether it all started with his falling off a bicycle on to his head at the age of eight, or with his being expected to be a girl eight years earlier, and ended with cold sago pudding and a statement by Mrs. Stoker that if Rights were Rights some people wouldn't be talking to their neighbours about Reel Meogany Wardrobes, had long since ceased to be an improvisation, and had attained the dignity of a stage performance in which the protagonists were word- perfect. So, too, with the exit lines. `Likely I'll see you next Wednesday,' says Jane without enthusiasm, and with an equal lack of enthusiasm Mrs. Stoker replies, 'Likely you- will.'
On Wednesdays, then, the Wellards dine out, and on this particular evening they were at the Ivy; not dressed for dinner or the play, but wondering if they would drop in at some cinema on the way home. Over the top of Reginald's head as he bent over the menu Sylvia's lovely smile flashed across the room, leaving some faint note of its passing in his consciousness. He looked up at her, saw the smile still lingering there, and said, `Who?'
`Mr. Fondeveril, he's just gone past. No, he went on inside, darling.'
`Fondeveril? That's Lady Qrmsby's father, isn't it: He was at the supper. I didn't know you'd met him. What about oysters? That gives us time to think about something else.' How many oysters, he thought, die in this cause?
`All right, darling.'
`Two half-dozens, and bring me the wine-list.'
