"Lord! But she's a conscienceless lovely devil!" thought Jack grimly. "I'd like to teach her a lesson. Anyhow, I'm hanged if I'm going to let her make me a party to her game with Bobo." Tabitha poured out the tea, and buttered a roll, while Isola leant back in the bamboo chair and played with the Shah. Bobo fell back in dismay. Jack looked on with a twinkle. It was not up to him to rescue his partner. The lady was of that highly-finished type that defies time鈥攆or a long time. She might have been twenty-eight or thirty-eight.
