The private life

    Newer Older

    Did you ever see him alone?”
    I tried to remember. “Oh, yes; he has been to see me.”
    “Ah, then he wasn’t alone.”
    “And I’ve been to see him, in his study.”
    “Did he know you were there?”
    “Naturally – I was announced.”
    Blanche Adney glanced at me like a lovely conspirator. “You mustn’t be announced!” With this she walked on.
    I rejoined her, breathless. “Do you mean one must come upon him when he doesn’t know it?”
    “You must take him unawares. You must go to his room – that’s what you must do.”
    If I was elated by the way our mystery opened out, I was also, pardonably, a little confused. “When I know he’s not there?”
    “When you know he is.”
    “And what shall I see?”
    “You won’t see anything!” Mrs Adney cried as we turned round.
