CHAPTER EIGHTEEN

bandless, they were now again in secret flight. For them suddenly the chill passages, the clattering stairs, were other passages, other stairs, no less chill, no less resounding; the press of people was translated into another throng no less intent; and the voices which they heard were shrill and unformed and eager as their own. Behind these doors were bosom friends and deadly enemies; such friends once, such enemies - that girl, what was her name, do you remember, Sylvia? And Sylvia remembered perfectly - or was she thinking of that other girl? No matter. To-night is to-night. Tomorrow, remembering their sacred promises to ring each other up `and arrange something', they will have forgotten the other's style, address and telephone number, and realize the impossibility of arranging anything with a Christian name and the complete particulars of a frock. But again, no matter. Yesterday is yesterday.
Reginald, a bachelor again, edged into Coral Bell's dressing-room. This was almost good-bye. He imagined himself saying good-bye to her in a scene on the stage.
`This is - good-bye, Lady Edgemoor.'
`You're not-going?' Hand at her breast, fear dawning in her lovely eyes.
He nods. If he spoke, he might forget that he was an Englishman.
`Where?'
`Westaways. I mean West Africa. Or is it East Africa? Or one of those expeditions which people join? Anyhow, I'm - going.'
`But - why?'
`I think you - know, Lady Edgemoor.' He looks her straight in the eyes. She knows.
`Because of - me?' she breathes.
Now to be a perfect gentleman.
