CHAPTER SIXTEEN

I
WHEN Coral Bell was in her hey-day, adored by all the curly young opera-hats which supped nightly at the Savoy, she received one afternoon two proposals from the same man. She sat in her dressing-room after the niatinee, a colourless wrapper pulled round her body, a white shiny face looking back at herself from the glass. Ned Lattimer, hands on top of his stick, chin on hands, gravely watched the face in the mirror.
`Now you know just how beautiful I am,' said Coral.
`You've got such good bones,' said Lattimer, `you'll always be all right.'
`Gracious, you can't see them, can you?' She threw down the rag with which she was busy, and gave the wrapper another pull.
`I meant the bones of your face.'
`Oh! You're welcome to those,' she said, and went back to them. He watched her silently.
`I'm having a season at the Circle,' he said suddenly.
`How do you mean you're having a season at the Circle? What as?'
`Producer. Part Manager. Hoffman and I.'
`Really? I say, you are getting on, aren't you? Why, you can't be a day more than sixty-seven.'
`I'm twenty-eight this year.'
`I thought you were sixty-seven. When were you nine?'
`Eighteen years ago, I should think.'
`Don't tell me that eighteen years ago you were running about and shouting and singing -'
`I was.'
