CHAPTER IX

Denis felt bolder with a strawberry mess in front of him. He was beginning to enjoy the conspiracy. " I suppose he'll see m'tutor sometime to-day and ask for our names," he said.
I don't see what m'tutor can do, Denis, if you keep your mouth shut," said Oliver. " The head usher won't sack me. Eight up at the most."
Peter finished his strawberries. " Taunton and Manley are the trouble. I think you'd better see Manley, Denis. You know him best, and explain the situation to him."
" All right, I'll try." But as the day wore on, Denis found it no easy matter to get hold of Robin. It was a whole school day and they were up to different masters in the afternoon. After last school, Robin had gone on the river and had not returned till lock up.
When supper came, nothing had been done. Peter and Denis talked in whispers and assured each other that nothing would happen. But Denis felt almost relieved when Wren checked them in the dining-room passage after prayers.
" Ah, Bailey, and Ockley ; and Harbord, there you are. I want to see you three a moment. I shan't be long."
They waited in the hall, while Wren discussed a few matters with the captain of the house. He asked Freeman a lot of questions and seemed in no hurry to finish. Then he led the way into his study and closed the door. He stood by the piano and looked at his past favourites, smug-faced and with arms crossed in their solid silver frames. They had never been to Devil's Island, thought Denis.
" The headmaster asked for your names," said Wren. He took out his toothpick and prodded at a recess.
" Yes, sir," said Peter.
" Yes, sir," said Denis.
" Of course, he knew about you already, Harbord."
" Yes, sir." Wren removed the trouble and put his toothpick in his waistcoat pocket.
" A silly thing to go to dance clubs and drink and smoke, eh, Bailey, after what I was saying to you the other night ?"
