A chance meeting on a train brought together Lord Ickenham and Bill Oakshott - although being told that Hermione was engaged to Pongo, Lord Ickenham's nephew, did make Bill feel like he's been struck behind the ear. And what with the goings-on at Ashenden Manor, is there any chance that it will ever work out for poor Bill?
