CHAPTER V

" Oh, he's not so bad," said Ockley. " Feathers's a decent enough fellow when you get to know him."
" I rather like him," said Spencer-Mace, who had waited to hear what Ockley would say.
" But he's a fool to meddle with new boys, and I told him so. It's nothing to do with me what chaps do ; but I rather draw the line at new kids."
" I'm all for their making up their minds for themselves," said Harbord.
" But we can't all have your attraction, can we, Oliver ?" " Oh can it, Peter. I'm going out." Harbord stretched himself and reached for his hat.
" I say, Ockley, would you mind if I had someone to tea ? " said Denis.
" Only too glad ; ask the rest."
" He, she, or it ?" said Harbord.
" She ; a girl, who lives near us at home. She's quite decent."
" Bring her along. Oh boy, I haven't seen a girl for three days, unless you count the hag."
" Thanks awfully ; then I'll ask her." Denis was a little afraid they might think Maureen countryfied. He prayed she would wear her smartest things and not that sailory looking suit and blue tam o'shanter. She looked ripping in it, of course ; but he was sure Ockley's sister did not wear a tam o'shanter in her sports Lagonda. As a matter of fact, she wore a blue beret.
" Tell me when she's coming," said Ockley, " and I'll get some lobster mayonaise. I suppose she eats lobster."
" And I'll ask them to send a chocolate cake from Endleigh," said Spencer-Mace. " I'll get something," said Harbord. The tea party would be rather fun, thought Denis.
The door opened suddenly. " Hullo, chaps, how's the world ?" said Featherstone. He was tall, with long oiled hair and a rather broad mouth.
" Fair," said Ockley. " How are you finding it? "
" Good," said Featherstone. " Come outside a moment ; I've something to tell you."

CHAPTER V

At supper that night Denis learnt that Shapeleigh had not left after all. Wren had apparently talked his people round and had been very decent about it. A few curious glances were thrown in Featherstone's direction. He sat between Ockley and Warburton. He was eating heartily and telling some pretty good stories.
