“More sweetmeats, Mr. Fish?” I smile.
“These are quite tasty.” Mr. Fish nibbles delicately. “We don’t have sweetmeats at the College.” He dabs his lips with his napkin as if we’re at a formal dinner. “You mentioned you’re in some difficulty. What service can I do for you today?”
“I need your help to stop this feud between Mr. Hastie and Babu Banerjee. Kali Churn told me he’s written another article,” I say.
Mr. Fish raises his eyebrows. “I see. What’s it about?”
“I’ve no idea, but it will escalate matters. I’m sure he wrote it because Mr. Hastie banned him from the Female Mission. Mr. Hastie has no authority to do that.”
“That’s not for me to say.” Mr. Fish reaches for the last sweetmeat.
