Coromo, Chapter 2, parts 628 - 631

628. The Restaurant manager went right to the heart of the matter, he wanted to know about the set of paintings he had sold to Tallulia. Immediately all thoughts of quitting his job fled out of his mind and he made an earnest explanation of himself. "You know what that woman is like", he said, "She demand I show her my paintings, I had no choice, and then she insisted I sell them to her."


629. "So Coromo, you paint pictures do you?"  Yes" he replied. "Tomorrow bring some examples of your work, I want to see what it is you are doing." Yes Sir" said Coromo.

630. The next evening Coromo went down to the managers office after work with three of his best pictures. He had no idea what to expect. The only thing he knew about his pictures was that a very strange woman had liked them, but if his work was really good or bad, he had no idea. He placed his pictures on the managers desk, and waited while his work was minutely examined.



631. While he was waiting he looked around at the restaurant manager's small office. Apparently the man had a certain appreciation for art, because there were pictures on the walls of the office. Coromo had never seen such strange pictures, all the work of a very famous painter named Bouguereau.
