CHAPTER II

" Hullo, Denis." A taller boy with dark brown hair came forward. " I didn't see you ; what have you been doing ? '
" Hullo, Robin. I am glad to see you. I haven't been doing much. Sailing mostly. I say, I'm up to that blasted Daddy Long Legs again, Featherstone says. It's the bloody limit."
" Tony's captain of the games, have you heard ? Randall left mysteriously in the holidays."
" Randall's left? Then there'll be a vacancy in the library. By Jove, that means you may ..."
" Oh, shut up. I haven't the faintest."
" How's the old Cormorant ?" said Robin.
" Had some splendid sails. I wish you'd been there."
" I wish I had. Have you been to see m'tutor yet ?"
" No ; lets go down together, shall we ?"
" I said I'd wait for Tony ; but it doesn't matter ; here he is." The new captain of the games was older than either of them. He was good looking in a foxy way, a bully, vain, a snob intellectually and socially, a good cricketer, and a fearless footballer. His father had failed in an attempt to revive a peerage. He took Robin by the arm and led him off towards the private side of the house. Denis followed. He hated Taunton and Taunton disliked him. When Robin walked with the captain of the games, he was Denis's superior in the social order of the house. But Mr. Wren himself, their housemaster, was a great commoner, where house distinctions were concerned. He stood by the piano in the drawing-room and shook hands with his boys as they came in.
Wren's at the moment was not a good house. It had won few school events in the last two years and was widely unpopular. But Wren was extraordinarily popular. His boys loved him. He was fond of music, painting and staying in country houses. He liked Denis and he liked his watercolour sketches, which were always a little less successful than his own. He took Denis sketching on Saturday evenings in the summer and they admired each other's work.
