CHAPTER SIXTEEN

`It would make rather a good stage set.'
`Copy it if you like.'
`Is that your bedroom in there?'
`Yes. Do vou want to see it? You could hide any amount of people there in the Second Act.'
He ignored that, and walked over to a table in the window.
`These are good,' he said, fingering one of a pair of candlesticks. `I was looking for something like this in Lady in Blue. Where did you get them?'
`Italy.'
`They're not Italian.'
`They don't speak it, if that's what you mean. But the man who made them was an Italian. I'm sorry. He was. And we met him in Italy, and he works in Italy, and he made them in Italy, and we bought them in Italy. That's why I said "Italy" - like that.'
He came back to her, a smile trying to lose itself in the corners of his disillusioned mouth, and said, `I offered you a job once.'
He had offered her two, thought Coral Bell. Rosalind and Mrs. Lattimer. She said, `I've always been grateful for that.'
`Now I've come to see you about another. You'll say no, of course, but I've told that fat cocoon Venture that I thought you might if I asked you nicely. Nixon's keen. So's Venture, if that doesn't put you off. Well?'
`What are we all talking about?' asked Lady Edgemoor plaintively.
So he told her ... and three-quarters of an hour later Coral Bell was saying, `All the same, it would be rathet fun, you know. Shall I? Shan't I? Well, I must cable to Charley.'
Charles, Lord Edgemoor, was on his way to Thibe
