Nell Abbot: A New Client
Subject: A New Client
Who: Nell Abbot
Where: The Theatre
Open to: Harry Fisher, Antoine Laurent, any of the boy’s at the theatre, anyone else who might be there.
The performance had been a good one as far as Nell was any judge. It had been enjoyed a lot if the clapping was anything to go by. Waiting in the wings backstage he brushed the hair from his face and fanned himself, cheeks flushed from the exhilaration of performing. The clapping had subsided a little now and Nell allowed himself to peer out, just a little from behind to curtain hoping to catch a glimpse of the new patron Harry had told him to expect tonight. There were any number of old faces in the crowd but there were still a few Nell didn’t recognize. Harry had said the new patron was French. There didn’t look to be anyone who seemed French to Nell out in the audience but then how was a Frenchman supposed to look?
He stood back away from the curtain, waiting for Harry to come and collect him, or send Will to escort him back to his room and get him changed. The other boys passed him, heading off to meet clients in the darkened backrooms but Nell stayed waiting, giving himself a few moments to compose himself – wanting to seem as refined and aloof as he imagined French boy’s must carry themselves.
He was going to make Harry proud tonight.
