Scene. - Phyllis's sitting-room. The time is before nine o'clock at night.
(At the rise of the curtain Phyllis is discovered standing back of table, finishing the packing of her traveling-bag. She is very much excited. She is in a typical girl's room. There are doors R. and L., leading to hall and bedroom, respectively. The walls are decorated with movie-actresses' pictures, kodak snap-shots, party favors, dance-programs, etc. There is a dresser D. R., with mirror above it, containing various toilet articles, and man's photograph framed, match-safe, small vase, etc. A settee, with gaudy cushions, is also D. R. A phonograph stands at back of room, with records, etc. A small table is L. C., with chairs R. and L. Telephone is set on this table, wearing a fantastic costume to correspond with the curtains and cushions and other girlish frivolities.)
Phyllis (going over articles in bag). Night-gown - teddy - stockings - kimono - clean blouse - tooth-brush - where's my comb? Where's my comb? (Darts to dresser for comb, packs it.) Oh dear, what time is it? Looks at wrist-watch, then notes man's picture on dresser, and rushes over to it.) Can't go without you!
(She kisses the picture, fervently. There is a sound of footsteps on the stairs.)
Flora May (on the stairs outside). Phyllis - Hey, Phyllis!
Phyl. (darting back to bag). Go away!
