Vicky gave this party every year, just before Christmas. She __used__ to do it before the war and she was doing it now, when the war was over. It was always the same people who came. It struck her suddenly how clannish they all were, but then the Deravenels in particular were somewhat addicted to their family. Vicky knew that she could always depend __on__ her relatives in a crisis.
She was __watching__ the guests greet each other and share the news. Vicky thought of her sister-in-law Kathleen, not present tonight. Vicky missed her presence. When Will had arrived tonight, he had __admitted__ that Kathleen was really sick. “But not Spanish flu,” he had added swiftly, observing the look of apprehension crossing her face, “just a heavy cold.”
Fenella’s voice brought her out of her reverie, and she looked across at her old friend, who was saying, «How is Charlie feeling?»
“He’s relieved he is safely home, but his wounds still hurt and he feels depressed …» She looked at Fenella as if __seeking__ advice.
«Mr. Ridgely made a remark to me the other day that he wished there was somewhere wounded soldiers could go, to have some sort of recreation, talk to other soldiers,» said Fenella.
“That’s an interesting idea” Vicky glanced at the others, __raising__ a brow. “Don’t you agree?”
“To __tell__ the truth, I do,” Stephen answered, always ready to back his wife in her project. “I think such a place would be quite marvelous for the wounded men who are now coming home.” Fenella nodded.
