CHAPTER I

" There's only Phyllis, and you know how much Phyllis and I love each other ; and Nancy Farrell, of course ; but she's going off to learn to be a nurse soon."
" Yes," said Denis. " I suppose it is dull." It must be rather rotten for girls when boys went back to school. " Why don't you learn to sail, Maureen ? That's a fine idea ; you could have the Cormorant ; I'll suggest it to father ; and then you'll be good enough to crew for me in the handicap class next hols."
4i " I might. I don't know. What would your family say? You know your father goes down and scrubs the Cormorant every week when you are away."
" I expect mother makes him. I say, she rather likes you, Maureen, or she wouldn't have asked you to stay on to-day."
" Does she ? I wonder."
" I swear she does. You're so good at sales of work and all that sort of sweat. I can't think how you do it."
" I'm not so sure," said Maureen. She glanced over her shoulder. The drawing-room door had opened. " Oh there you are; you two," said Mrs. Bailey. She sounded surprised ; a little like Jack Hood, accepting the five shillings. She seemed relieved to find them still examining the dispatch case. " Isn't it a nice one ?" she said. " You must look after it very carefully, Denis."
" Yes, mum."
" Oh, Maureen, I don't want to hurry you, but per
f,) haps you ought to be going. I don't want to get into your mother's bad books. It's nearly seven o'clock."
" I'm afraid I've stayed simply ages, Mrs. Bailey. I think the case is too lovely." They trooped through into the hall. It was beginning to get dark. Outside in the drive there were big shadows under the elms. " Will you see Maureen off ?" said Mrs. Bailey. " I must get back and finish your pair of socks before supper." She left them standing in the hall.
" Well, good-bye, Maureen," said Denis. He held out his hand. " See you soon."

CHAPTER I

Maureen mounted her bicycle. " Good-bye, Denis ; and don't forget to write." He stood by the door. The bike zigzagged down the drive. It swerved wildly and a hand waved. Denis closed the front door and prepared for his last evening at home.
