You who always pretended you were such a dear little innocent! Incidentally, who were those flashy friends who saw you off at the station?" Patience's eyes blazed. "They weren't flashy." "Well, they hardly looked the sort your revered aunts would approve of. A bit stagey, I thought them. But the girl was a knockout, I agree. Unfortunately I didnt see much of her.

"I don't like it I don't like you in that smart dress. It doesn't suit you and you look a mess \vith all that muck on your face. For two pins I'd take you right back to your aunts and tell them they'd better keep a closer eye on you. Yes. and I'll tell them too that by refusing to let you see me they're only running their heads into a pack ot trouble. That engaged to me, you'd have come to no harm.
