CHAPTER FIFTEEN

Alice came up with the tea.
`Sure you won't have any?'
`No, thanks. Now what were we talking about?'
`Education.'
`Yes. No. What the - Oh, I know, I asked you if you knew Byron.' He frowned, a little annoyed.
Sylvia laughed happily.
`That's it. Seems so dam silly to come back to it. Like capping a feller's story in the club, and some dam feller, sorry, sorry, comes up just as you're getting to the point and smacks the other feller on the back, and says, "Hallo, old man, haven't seen you since God knows when, how's the family?" and they swop their blasted - they swop families for five minutes by the blasted - by the clock, and then your fellex turns back to you, and says, "Sorry, what were you going to say?" And the whole thing's as cold as a- as --' He groped for a substitute for the `bloody ham-sandwich' with which alone he could express its coldness, failed to find it, and ended with a shrug and a`See what I mean? Sorry'.
`You're making it worse,' said Sylvia. `Because I feel I must know about Byron now, and the longer you put it off the colder he gets.'
Ormsby laughed, his eyes kept on her with the unwinking absorption which had been his passport through the defences of women. Sylvia turned her head away, and made a lingering choice between indistinguishable pieces of bread-and-butter.
`Byron couldn't stand seeing women eat,' said Ormsby slowly. `He thought they ought to do it in private - like - well, he thought they ought to do it in private.'
`How funny of him,' said Sylvia coolly.
