She demonstrated a couple of scenarios for them.

Certainly a personal space invader, they decided.

The wedding was only six weeks away, so they had to work fast, as Algy wanted Ruth to meet his mother well before then. They decided they needed to find another name for her.
"Moonbeam," Ginger suggested, "Or Sky."

'Charity or Harmony?' proposed Biggles.

"Patience," was Bertie's suggestion. "She'll need it."

Sweetie it was. Ruth thought bubble gum would enhance her performance. She could she said, blow a bubble the size of a balloon. It was a party trick of hers.

It was certainly impressive. Algy thought it should be saved up for a special occasion, rather than wasted on their first meeting. Ginger had no words he was so affected.

The trick she demonstrated that they all agreed was the most irritating, was the tapping of her tongue piercing against her teeth to produce a clicking sound.

What political views would Algy like her to hold? She thought she should be for World Peace but how did he feel about her having liberal views on landowners? Should she suggest all land be sold off and huge households made to take in the homeless or was that going too far?

'Everyone's for World Peace,' grinned Algy. 'How about unilateral disarmament of all our armed forces, giving up the nuclear deterrent, writing off all debts to the EMF, and banning all forms of hunting'

"No," Biggles stated. "The whole point is to put your mother off pressuring you into marriage ever again."

"But if Father is upset, then Mother will be even more upset," Algy pointed out.

"The object is not to get you written out of the will, my dear chap," Bertie said whilst polishing his eyeglass.

"Oh. Right. Okay, moving on."

'Why does your mother want you to get married?' asked Ruth aka Sweetie practically.

'She wants us to settle down and have families.' Biggles and Algy chanted in unison.

'Well, in that case, I think I want to travel to primitive societies and spend time living in them. I don't want children because the world's over populated and I want to prevent the spread of privilege down through the next generation,' suggested Sweetie.

'Right,' said Biggles, becoming practical. 'You've got to 'meet' each other somewhere and be seen out once or twice, then Algy can take you to meet his mother.'

This was easily arranged, Bertie having the idea of Algy taking Sweetie to afternoon tea in Harrods, where they were bound to be seen by Lady Lacey's friends and word would get back to her.

This was very effective. No fewer than three ladies stopped to say a gracious hello to Algy and to enquire after his mother. Algy introduced the exotic Sweetie to each and was most pleased with the effect she had on them.

Algy and Ruth/Sweetie meandered home to Mount Street in a casual, roundabout fashion, making sure they were seen by everyone from the girl in the coffee shop to the postcard seller on the corner. Algy bought her a rose from a street vendor, which she dutifully admired and then tucked behind her ear.

The very next day Lady Lacey rang. "He's not here," Biggles informed her, grinning at Algy over the breakfast table. "In fact, I haven't seen him since yesterday lunchtime."

Lady Lacey spoke at some length. Algy could guess at what she was saying by the way Biggles replied 'I don't know,' 'I'm really not at liberty to comment,' and 'I think you need to speak to Algy. I'll tell him you've rung when he comes in but he's not spending much time here at the moment.'
