CHAPTER VII

to Freeman, not excluding the dame. He then felt better and examined his wounds. Six hefty weals, crossed on one another, red and already swollen like the mountain ridges on Raven's bas relief map. Red, blue, yellow, brown, they would last through their various stages for a good fortnight. He would soon be rather proud of his marks, and perhaps show them in the bath and forget about their pain. But the picture of Robin, reposing judicially in the library armchair would not fade. Why need Robin have been there ?
There was a tap on the door, and Wren's long nose was poked in. " Ah, er, good evening Denis."
" Good evening, sir," said Denis, hitching up his trousers into a conversational position. Wren looked more than usually ill at ease. He hummed to himself and inspected Denis's pictures with microscopic attention. He picked up a glass paper-weight and held it up to the light. Denis stood expectantly, holding up his trousers with one hand.
" Ah, yes, er, that's a good picture of your mother up there," said Wren.
" Yes, sir, it's not too bad."
" Yes, er, er, ah by the way, Denis, there's something I wanted to talk to you about."
" Yes, sir ? " He felt really rather sorry for his tutor and wished he could help him out with the business.
" Ah yes, I'm rather afraid you saw Freeman this evening? Yes, I thought so ; but what I wanted to say, Denis, you see one must grow up. One lives and learns, and if one doesn't learn, life can be very, er, painful at times." He smiled at his joke and went on quickly. " It's nothing to do with me what you do among yourselves. I never interfere in the house unless I can help it, but in this case the captain of the house came to me and asked .., well Denis, I'm sure you understand, and talking about pictures, what about a shot at Windsor Bridge from the cobbler one evening ? I've discovered some new paper for water-colour, that carries the wettest wash. We might try next week, perhaps ?"
" Yes, Sir, I'd like to very much," said Denis.
" Good, good, and don't forget, we live and learn," and

before the theme could blossom further, Mr. Wren had gone. Denis stood thinking for a moment. Then he let down his trousers and twisted his neck. The red smears were already tinged with blue, as if the paint had run. Good old Wren, thought Denis. He rubbed some cold cream gently on the weals and got into bed. When the boy's maid came next morning, he was lying asleep on his stomach.
