' There was a long pause before Joe said , ` I want to see you about … about business . ' ` Yes , yes , anytime . ' ` Tomorrow ? ' Mr Beecham 's eyebrows moved up slightly , and he said , ` Yes , if you wish , tomorrow . Say , eleven o'clock ? ' ` Very well . ' Joe 's reply was curt and Mr Beecham looked at this young man who , when he had last seen him just a few months ago , had appeared to him to be a schoolboy , immature for his age : but sitting before him now was a young man with no sign of immaturity on his countenance , for he seemed to have aged overnight , as it were .

He hated that .
