She drew the gilt chair from under the table opposite O'Day with a well-kept hand, garnished with scarlet finger-nails and some good imitation jewellery. She sat down.
She said: "Well, if it isn't Terence! It does my heart good to see you once again, Mr. O'Day. I can't tell you how I've missed you."
