CHAPTER IX

" Peter, what do you think about going ?"
" Yes, we ought to get back. Hullo, wake up Oliver. Oliver." His eyes had closed. " Come on, pull yourself together. We're going. M'tutors. Eton."
" Yes," said Oliver. " Good old tutor. I'm all right."
" I wonder where the beaks have got to," said Denis.
" Wait a minute. I'll go and see if the coast is clear," said Lady Bridget. " Here's some money for the bill, Peter." She drew out five notes. " You can tip the waiter and keep the change for yourself." She crossed the floor and went to the entrance. The two masters were examining the pages of the guest book. They looked up at her, but said nothing. She watched them crowd into a small saloon and drive off.
Peter threw down a shilling on the cloakroom table. " That will do for all three of us." They waited a few minutes to give the beaks time to get clear, and packed themselves into the Lagonda. Lady Bridget drove some way and turned into a dark lane. The boys jumped out and took off their suits. Denis stepped out of his blue serge and shivered a little. He felt cold and afraid out here under the threatening hedgerows after the heat and glare of the club. On each side of the headlights black, gruesome shapes nodded in the rising air. The beam of white only deepened the mystery of the darkness round them. Denis wondered if the beaks lay hidden behind the hedge shapes, ready to follow them back to their tutors. The evening had ceased to be a rag. He knew there would be no laughter about the return to the house. He saw the tell-tale rope dangling between him and the safe comfort of his bed.
Lady Bridget stopped the car and dimmed the lights in the outskirts of Eton. They thanked her quickly and slipped away in the shadows. The streets were very quiet and dark. The street lamps threw pale circles on the pavement. They started and stood motionless, while the school clock banged out the four quarters and gave one final stroke. One o'clock. The harshness of the strokes sounded brutal across the delicate stillness of the night. Denis held his breath. How
