This chapter starts on a typical April day in Paris, when Philippa met her friend Georges Apedo-Amah and they dined at their favourite restaurant and talked. The next day, she received a letter from Dennis, telling her that he had not won the Granada Prize for the concerto he had written and dedicated to her, and and he was blaming her. Returning to England, Philippa decided to play it cool and she delivered four concerts in a row and met Dennis every day, whom she was going to marry. Dennis asked Philippa to consult a priest before marrying him, but she did not give him an immediate answer because she was lecturing in some western states as Miss Monterro. Dennis did not know that in mid-August of that same year, Philippa suddenly realized she was pregnant, and the father was Georges. Philippa was troubled because the father of her child was black and she didn't want her child to experience what she had.

Keywords:   Dennis Redux, Granada Prize, Miss Monterro, pregnant, Georges Apedo-Amah
