552

Adam is resorting to threats and Young Loomis is resorting to panic.  Were I Roger Collins, I’d be resorting to brandy.

Instead, this was followed by Miss Winters announcing her engagement to Mr. Jeff Clark.  I have grown inured to romantic disappointment.  In this instance, I gave Miss Winters my blessing.  It was an act of compassion, for I truly wish her to be happy, and I saw it as an opportunity for me to force myself to demonstrate a maturity that the beast never permitted, and so unlike Angelique’s example.

As a young man, I was rigorously schooled in the fine art of making strong, first impression.  Few ever instruct us on how to say farewell.
