A Happy Pair: A Comedietta in One Act (Classic Reprint) Details

Excerpt from A Happy Pair: A Comedietta in One Act
Scene. - A breakfast room elegantly furnished - breakfast on the table at R., fireplace at back in the centre. Large window, L., sofa R., table L., C. doors R. U. E. and L. 2 E.
Enter, Mrs. Honeyton.
There, Ferdinand's not down yet! How late he is. I've had some breakfast, for I was so hungry I could wait no longer written two letters, been twice round the garden, and gathered these roses on purpose for him. (takes some thread from a work-box and begins to tie them together) There was a time, five months ago, when he used to give me bouquets and not I him. That was before we were married, of course. There seems to be some dreadful principle in human nature, some horrid law, that the man must pay the attentions before marriage and the woman afterwards; and the men have the best of the bargain, too, for I am sure in my most coquettish moods I never received Ferdinand's attentions, then, with a hundredth part the coldness with which he receives mine now! O, there's been a sad falling off in him, a sad falling off, a gradual decadence, a decline and fall in his affections like a thermometer in an increasing frost. There! (holding up the bouquet) Don't they look nice now they're tied together? How beautifully they harmonize! O, the happy flowers, that don't change their tint and become something quite different directly they're coupled, as human creatures too often do directly they re tied together - pleasant flowers that can be united in this way without all harmony being lost. But I won't think of our union, Ferdy's and mine, in this melancholy fashion. Perhaps he's only a little put out about something - I will still be cheerful, and happy, and loving, and in time he must come round again, and be as nice and affectionate as ever.
