CHAPTER IX

Denis crept along the passage and twisted the handle of his door. His room seemed a stranger to him. The iron bedstead, burry, washstand, ottoman, table, all stood aloof, reserved and superior. He was afraid of the furniture and he hurried into bed. In the reflected light of a street lamp he feared to find a look of pained disapproval on the face of his furniture. He turned away his head towards the interminable wall patterns and closed his eyes. But he could not sleep. He had to go over the experiences of the evening and live them again to ease his mind. He saw himself in the dance club. Sights and sounds and that odd smell of hot luxury returned sharp. The strip of polished parquet swam smoothly past its carpet banks. " Oom-wah," croaked the nigger's trumpet.. A shaft of light was suddenly in the darkness and a fluffy white ball in the centre of the light. Mournfully the grisly hedge shapes nodded in the air. Thunder roiled down from the railway arch as the car roared through. The school clock clanged on the unresisting night. He could remember little more. Tumbling into Oliver's room and Robin's whispered remarks had come as an anti-climax and he had barely taken them in. It had been a wonderful evening, but so tiring. He fell asleep with the nigger grinning above his silver bowler. " Oom-wah," brayed the trumpet through his dreams.
Denis got up early the next morning. He dressed quickly, collected his books for early school and went down to the dining-room. He wanted to talk to somebody and hear other people talking.
" The first time I've ever seen you eat early breakfast," said Spencer-Mace. " Try some of m'dame's special coffee."
" Tea for me," said Denis. " What a glorious day. I couldn't stay in bed. It must be decent at your place in the summer."
" You must come and see Endleigh one day," said Spencer-Mace. " There's a beautiful lake and the most gorgeous walks in the pinewoods."
" I'd like to," said Denis. He rather liked Spencer-Mace
