A large, dark-curtained room where the light from a single reading-lamp falling on Turkey carpet, on books beside a large armchair, on the deep blue-and-gold coffee service, makes a sort of oasis before a log fire.
In red Turkish slippers and an old brown velvet coat, KEITH DARRANT sits asleep.
He has a dark, clean-cut, clean-shaven face, dark grizzling hair, dark twisting eyebrows. [The curtained door away out in the dim part of the room behind him is opened so softly that he does not wake.
LARRY DARRANT enters and stands half lost in the curtain over the door.
A thin figure, with a worn, high cheek-boned face, deep-sunk blue eyes and wavy hair all ruffled--a face which still has a certain beauty.
He moves inwards along the wall, stands still again and utters a gasping sigh.
KEITH stirs in his chair.] KEITH. Who’s there? LARRY. [In a stifled voice] Only I--Larry. KEITH.
