CHAPTER IX

could the clock crash tactlessly on through the silence ? He wanted to answer back with a great shout.
As they entered Wren's front drive, a car roared through Eton. Long after its tail lamp had vanished, the echoes dropped from the walls of chapel. Oliver took the rope in his hands and began to climb. In the silence the noise of his scrambling was absurdly loud, thought Denis. He expected every window to be flung up and a dozen heads thrust out. He wanted to laugh. It was so hopeless that they should not be heard, that he gripped the rope and climbed quickly, hand over hand, without caring what noise he made. Oliver had disappeared through the window, and now Peter was about to start. " Hush," said a voice, as Denis half fell into the room. People were breathing in the darkness. Curses and creakings from below, and Peter's silhouette was raised against the window. He rolled over the sill on to the floor. " Speak in a whisper," said a voice. " Is that all of you, Bailey ?"
" Yes."
" And Ockley ? "
" Yes. Who are you ? "
" Manley. I saw your rope, Harbord, from Taunton's window. I've asked him to say nothing about it. But he insisted that it should be taken in, in case anyone saw. So I pulled it in and lowered it when I saw you coming across from Cannon Yard. You are bloody little fools, you know."
" I don't see what it's got to do with Taunton," said Peter.
" Hush. Don't talk so loud or you'll wake up the whole house. Taunton's been very decent about it. He might have told Freeman."
" I don't mind being tanned."
" You'll be lucky if you get off with a tanning ; but we can't go into that now. Get to your rooms as quietly as you can. Where have you been, by the way ?"
" I'm afraid that's our secret," said Peter.
" I don't care. Now get to bed, and don't let the night hag catch you. She's down stairs at the moment."
