CHAPTER IX

" I don't know. I don't think Rawson knows my name."
" He bloody well knows mine," said Oliver. " He gave me a yellow ticket last half for cribbing."
" Hadn't we better bunk ?" said Denis. Oliver craned his neck round the alcove. " Oh, ho ! " he whistled. " If Rawson sneaks on us, I shall tell the head beak who I saw him with. That isn't his wife with the yellow hair."
" They don't look like anybody's wives, either of them," said Lady Bridget. " But what are we going to do ?"
" Stay here, I vote," said Denis.
" Same here," said Oliver. " And if Rawson or the other bloke says anything, tell him we are going to report him for taking out tarts. Sorry, Lady Bridget." She laughed and filled up their glasses. A pile of sodden fruit lay in the empty carafe.
Denis was no longer self-conscious. The strip of parquet now seemed a very common piece of planking like the decks of the Speenmouth yachts. The chatter had quite vanished and he heard only the melody of the band. The niggers were inspired. One of them cocked a silver painted bowler over his trumpet and blared out a cracked sequence of oom-wah, oom-wahs. His thick red lips slapped on the mouthpiece and the muted notes croaked like an animal in pain. Denis asked Lady Bridget to dance again. He was getting into it now. His feet flowed loosely to the rhythm. He looked the beaks squarely in the face and he looked at the women with them. The new stinks beak turned his head away and said something to his companion. Oliver remained in the alcove, as he knew Rawson only too well. Peter had broken all Devil's Island records for strawberries and cream. Lady Bridget produced a cigarette case.
" Thanks," said Oliver. " We'll show the beaks what we think of them." All three lit up and drew short, quick puffs. Denis poised his cigarette between his first and second fingers like a debutante holding the stem of her first wine glass. His lips popped and kissed the ivory tip. He coughed and blew his nose. Lady Bridget inhaled through a long jade holder.
