Violet frowned all over her fair, small face, but Olive Moore, a sixth-form girl, was too powerful an individual to be lightly disregarded. She shrugged her shoulders therefore, and walked sulkily away."Shall I really—how unfortunate; but she doesn't look a bad-tempered woman, and what is there in wishing for fresh eggs?

She scrutinized Olive's face now, a slightly satirical expression hovering round her somewhat thin lips.
"You know perfectly well what I mean," she answered; "you know who the enemy is—at least you know who is your enemy."
