NEMESIS

She spun round. "What the hell are you talking about?" She was as white as death.
O'Day said: "Take the weight off your feet and sit down. I'll tell you what I'm talking about. I've spent a lot of time thinking about you; trying to connect this and that; trying to add up two and two without making five of it. I think I've done it. I'm going to tell you a little story. See how you like it."
She sat down in the armchair. She leaned back; rested her head on the cushion. She said: "Go on, Terry. I like hearing stories."
" Four or five weeks ago," said O'Day, "Needham, who'd been at Mallowfield in the war; who'd grown very fond of Mrs. Deane; who'd proposed to her and been turned down; went down there to see her. He wanted to see her because he thought there might be just a chance that she'd changed her mind about him. She hadn't. She told him so. More than that she told him that there was no hope for him because she was engaged to be married to a man called Pavin.
" Needham didn't like that. He didn't like it at all. Because he knew plenty about this Pavin. He thought he was a bad type. He didn't say too much about that to Mrs. Deane, because he expected she'd put it down to jealousy. He tried to persuade her against this marriage, but she thought he was merely being jealous, so Needham gave it up and came up to town. This would be three or four weeks ago. He was dispirited; down. He was so unhappy that he was prepared to do anything at all, and just at this moment he ran into a very attractive and charming woman"O'Day grinned-"a Mrs. Merys Vanner. Remember, Merys?"
