some food going. Doug goes to the boat and begins cooking. There is a knock on the door and Doug opens it to find
a woman there. She introduces herself as Enid, a friend of Vera's.

they used to have. She tells Vera that she has had a row with her boyfriend and asks Vera if she could put her up for

"Why didn't you tell me all about the other men from the beginning?" he asks. He leaves, telling Vera he'll be in touch.
