CHAPTER SIXTEEN

Yes. All very well for Nixon, to talk like that to his wife (had he a wife? How little one knew about these people), but for Wellard it was absurd. He was a spectator, not a performer; with nothing but his own pleasure to consider. Well, he had considered his own pleasure. He couldn't drag Sylvia about with him everywhere - particularly in this new world where wives and husbands were so seldom mentioned, and nobody ever seemed quite certain who, at any given moment, was married to whom. Suppose he had said to Nixon, `Yes, I should like to come, but I must bring my wife.' It would sound too ghastly, as though he were afraid of her, or she were jealous. Trailing round after him, so that he shouldn't be alone with the pretty actresses. Horriblel Sordidl Like one of those terrible films. No. And if he had said
`Sorry, I'm afraid I'm engaged -'
Well, he had said it. At first. And then when he had heard that Coral Bell -
She's such good company, that' s what it is. Stimulating. Clever, and makes the other person feel clever too. I know that if I say anything, she'll see what I mean at once. Same with Lena. And that Miss Voles. Well, it's just - naturally a man likes - I mean it's only natural.
All the same ...
Well, look here, what about doing what Coral Bell said? Taking her to the theatre to-morrow? And introducing her to Lattimer, and Venture, and perhaps that Miss Masters, and, well, all of them. Jove, she'd knock spots off them ! Now they really would see what a lovely woman was like. Yes, that was it. That would make it all right...
He went into the drawing-room, the words on his lips. (`I say, I've got rather an idea.') Nobody there.
