Start:

LAVINIA--You better sit down. (Christine sits in the chair at rear center. Lavinia goes back to her father's chair at left of table.)

CHRISTINE--Well--if you're quite ready, perhaps you will explain.

LAVINIA--I suppose Annie told you I'd been to visit Hazel and Peter while you were away.

End:

LAVINIA--(suspiciously) If what?

CHRISTINE--(quickly) Nothing. I only meant if I went off with Adam. But of course you know I won't do that. You know there's nothing I can do now--but obey your orders!
