CHAPTER FOURTEEN

'Tut-tut ! You don't mean-'
`No, I don't mean anything. I'm just a little anxious. She's so lovely, and so -innocent.'
`But -' Mr. Fondeveril began on a note of expostulation, and turned it into a perturbed cough. What he had been about to say was, `Surely Bob's women are always - er - professionals? Nobody falls in love with Bob.' He remembered in time that he knew nothing of Bob's habits. She read his thought, as she always did.
`It isn't that,' she said. `It's just that people will talk, if they go about together. His reputation - it's a pity. She's so sweet. And people are so horrid.'
`Are they-do they go about together?'
`Well, they hardly know each other yet. She came to lunch, and Bob was there some of the time - I didn't know he was going to be, and he did say he'd seen her since.'
`Oh, well, if he said so,' said Mr. Fondeveril, eager to reassure himself.
She shook her head. `You see, I know Bob. I've seen him looking at her. I don't think he would -' she hesitated, and ended, `well, he never has yet. Not my own friends. Besides, .rbe',r quite different, and much too much in love with her husband to think of anybody else. But anybody as lovely as that -Poor Bob! He fancies himself, you know, and yet he always has to pay. It's rather sad.'
Mr. Fondeveril wanted to express horror at his little Maggie's calm acceptance of her husband's infidelities, but didn't quite see how he could reconcile it with his own ignorance of them. So he said:
`I don't think there's much to worry about, dear. You saw them together just now. As happy a married couple as England has to show.'
