Storyline

When Enid's boyfriend Eliot presses her, she finally admits that she has been seeing another man, Cyril Hardeen. She agrees to break it off with Cyril whom she describes as a older, gentler man who wouldn't harm a flea. When they finally meet, Eliot finds Cyril much as Enid described him. In fact, Cyril describes himself as a throwback - someone who values honor and civility above all else. Cyril also has no intention of giving Enid up and so puts into action a plan to ensure that she will remain his. Written by garykmcd
