CHAPTER TWENTY-TWO 'tf rept;) -twenti 'tu:

THE GARDEN PARTY
It was ten past six and the guests had not arrived yet. By six o'clock Moruca had finished her preparations for the farewell party: she had made the sandwiches, cut the chocolate cake, boiled the kettle for tea or coffee, and laid everything on the table in the garden. For it was to be a garden party, you know. The weather was beautiful. It had continued to be beautiful for the last two weeks and there were no signs of rain. So why not have a garden party? It's much more Iun. 2. Andrei had been of great help to her. He had helped her carry the table and the chairs into the garden. Then he had run quickly to the grocer's to buy some sugar. They had run out of sugar the day before and Monica had completely forgotten to buy some .. And before that he had helped her to do the packing. There still was a lot of luggage to carry, although they had sent the heavier things, mostly books, by railway. S. And the guests? There they were, coming in at the garden gate one by one. First Iris, running into the house with a basketful of roses in her hand, followed at "Somedistance by Sue. Then Mike, who was bringing up the rear. They were met in the hall by Andrei and Maruca. They shook hands and exchanged greetings and smiles. Monica I. 1.
