Keeping it from Harold By P.G Wodehouse

The story revolves around how Bill decides to retire from the twenty-round contest with American Murphy at the National Sporting Club. Although it was hard training for this one, Bill is too afraid to fight as he will be in the news and Harold will inquire about him. His trainer, Jerry Fisher does everything he can to persuade Bill to fight. Ms. Bramble is also unhappy to learn that Bill has decided to step down thinking of the price he would have received (if Bill won) and how he will help finance Harold's education.
When the three quarrel, Harold enters the scene. Feeling deceived, Jerry tells Harold about his father's profession. Everyone thinks that Harold will hate his father to be a fighter. However, to everyone's surprise, Harold complains to Bill that if he does not fight, Harold will lose his pocket money that he has wagered on the game. He tells them that his friend at school will stop intimidating him if they know his father is young Porky.

Harold asks for a picture of his father to impress his friends. This discussion encourages Bill to go and complete his training.
