(coughing and turning away from a large wooden chest) Darlin’.
Not your usual time.
Me: I didn’t feel well this morning so went back to be: slept ‘til noon
and feel fine now.
I’m glad to hear it.
Me: How was your morning?
Breakfast was not a grand affair.
Me: Coffee, bourbon and a cigarette?
(sheepish) … Yes. A distressing lack of conversation over
coffee followed. Rum did his best, but conversation is not a feline’s forte.
Then I bathed and shaved, and began to search the linen press.
Me: Found anything so far?
Lady’s handkerchiefs. A silver locket. Various cravats and
neck ties which I do not recall. A very handsome shirt in deep blue.
Me: I like the sound of that.
I’ve found that stronger colours tend to exacerbate the pallor
of my skin. Make me look more unwell than I am.
Me: Pity. I can imagine you in TARDIS blue.
(standing) I shall try it on.
Me: Bite her! Sorry – Andromeda keeps picking fights with Tiresias – Tiresias is
unhappy about it.
Time for the guest to leave no doubt.
Me: Tiresias certainly thinks so.
(turning towards me) Well?
Me: I like it – I like it very much.
I don’t appear ghoulish?
Me: (laughing) If I
had something to throw at you I would! You look exceptionally smart.
Alright then; my sorceress has spoken!
Me: (as he changes shirts back) You’re getting too thin again.
(offhand) Winter weight.
Me: Wretch! … What are you most hoping to find in there?
(smiling) A black silk gown striped with silver.
Me: That would be a neat trick. With long black lace fingerless gloves
to match, I hope?
Of course! And patent leather boots.
And a black silk choker with Bedlam’s star in silver. An opera
cape too: velvet, lined in shot grey silk, edged with glass beads and jet and
black seed pearls.
Me: You’d have to do very well
at the tables to afford that sort of thing.
And with a witch’s luck, who’s to say I wouldn’t?
Me: Am I to hex every one else’s cards?
(magnanimous) I leave that entirely
at your discretion.
Me: You get me an outfit like that and I’ll hex everyone’s cards all day
and all night.
(smiling) I had no idea sorceresses were so mercenary.
Me: Only for you.
That is gratifying to hear.
