She leaves and Greg finds a note of the address and decides to follow and surprise her. He packs the slippers in his bag.Unfortunately, Ginny is not going to see her parents, but her former lover.Greg arrives at Philip and Sheila’s house, The Willows, in Lower Pendon, in advance of Ginny. He meets the couple, whom he assumes are Ginny’s parents, and all have a conversation at odds with each other, leaving each other none the wiser who everyone else is.
