CHAPTER VII

frocks, as I can move quicker at tennis, of course. I don't know about the evening."
" Yes, but what do you think of the lower waist line ?"
" Well, you've got to have the right figure," said Maureen. " It all depends." She looked at Denis, who was frowning and rolling bread pellets on the table cloth.
" Have some more tea, Miss Roxburgh," said Ockley. " And you must have some of Spencer-Mace's extra special cake, made at Endleigh for the occasion." Harbord tittered.
" It looks jolly good," said Maureen, " but I don't know if I could."
" Oh come on, Maureen, you've eaten nothing. Try a little." Denis had hardly spoken. He had eaten rapidly, glancing furiously at Spencer-Mace, who, he considered, was letting down the mess, Wren's, and Eton in her eyes, and more covertly at Maureen to see what she, thought of his friends. Ockley ate slowly, but with purpose, as if a long journey lay ahead of him. There was a distended benevolence about his expression. Harbord munched away in the corner, his eyes lifting from lobster to Maureen and from Maureen to chocolate cake.
Maureen gave up the idea of dinner that night and took a slice of chocolate cake. " Very good," she said, between mouthfuls. The cake went the round. All four surpassed themselves to set her a good example. Ockley was pouring out some more tea, when a scuffle outside the door ended in a red face being propelled into the room. Big eyes popped out of the face, " Sorry, I didn't know." The face withdrew as suddenly. A minute later another head looked in and withdrew as if a corpse lay within. Maureen smiled. " They seem to be rather frightened of something. Is it me ?"
" They're jealous of us," said Ockley.
" That's it," said Denis. No more faces appeared, the rumour having gone round that Ockley had someone to tea. Barging in on other boys' people was very bad form. Denis had once hid himself in the bathroom, when Robin Manley's mother and father came up the stairs and stayed there till Robin hauled him out to go and talk to them.
