Amy looked apologetic.  He looked around the room appreciatively. ' He moved about to familiarise himself with the refurbished room and calculate its possibilities.  Amy looked anxiously through the window. ' Sali Prydderch was watching Amy nervously from the corner of her eye.  Nanw More stood by, her hands holding down her coat, clearly impressed by the way Esther was able to pacify the child.  He had to be given the proper ambience before he could begin to demonstrate the better qualities of a thoughtful mind.

Eddie held him in deliberate suspense. ' He waited for Cilydd to react and smiled at the effort of his restraint. ' Eddie tapped the side of his nose and then adopted an airily objective tone. ' Eddie abandoned his line of thought when he saw Cilydd had stopped listening. ' He put his question in an insinuating tone. ' Eddie waved his arms in triumph when he saw the beginnings of a smile on Cilydd's face. ' 'I don't think Amy approves of me,' Cilydd said at last. ' Eddie held his head to one side to show how intrigued he was.

He came back tying the cord of his dressing­gown. ' Eddie grinned mischievously, but Cilydd took the question seriously. ' Eddie raised both his fists and shook them angrily.  He sat in front of the fire with his jaw sunk on his chest. 'This is a bit of a blow,' he said. Cilydd made an apologetic noise. ' 'There's the ward committee of the Labour Party,' Cilydd said. Eddie groaned melodramatically.  It includes Fabians and Marxists.  He picked up the whisky glass and drained the last drops a second time.
