CHAPTER VII

French hours in forming pictures of her arrival, and the tea party in the house. When Saturday came, he had a clear picture in his mind, and he had ready a long list of things he wanted to say, and would say, when Maureen arrived.
The cousins left her at the door of Wren's. They seemed glad that Denis was there to meet her and at the same time a little anxious of leaving her in his company. " We'll call for you in an hour, Maureen," said the feminine cousin, and went away with her husband to look at the Eton War Memorial.
Denis took Maureen's hand and led her down a dark, stone-flagged passage. " Up here, Maureen ; go on," he pushed her ahead of him. She went slowly up the staircase, looking backward over her shoulder. Denis saw with relief that she was wearing a rather nice low-brimmed hat and a brown coat and skirt that were surely new. She had a parcel in her hand. She was shy, but looked ripping. Boys stared after her when she had passed. Lower boys shrank back into shadows, but a few uppers stood their ground on the lower passage and appraised her frankly. Featherstone, leaning against the notice board with his hands in his pockets, looked her in the eyes and turned away with a spicy comment, when she had gone.
" No, another flight," said Denis. " Just along here. It's Ockley's room. You'll like Ockley, and the others are quite decent." He opened the door and pushed her forward. " Here she is," he said, and stood in the doorway. Ockley was doling out lobster mayonnaise in equal porportions. Spencer-Mace, his hair beautifully oiled, leaned against the mantelpiece. " This is Ockley, Maureen. Spencer-Mace." She stretched out a bewildered hand ; " and that's Harbord over there." Harbord upset half the milk jug as he came forward, but remembered in time to murmur, " Pleased to meet yer," then busied himself with the milk. Denis stood in the doorway.
" Do sit down, Miss Roxburgh," said Ockley. " Let me take your coat." He hung it with slow motion gravity on the door peg. " I hope you can eat lobster ?"
