CHAPTER X

cup had gone to his head. There was a weight above his eyes and all the sharpness had gone out of the sounds he heard. The frocks and hats, which drifted towards the luncheon tents, moved in a deadened atmosphere. His head was a little top-heavy. Everyone seemed equally indistinct and he felt a great self-confidence.
" Will you walk round with me, Miss Wreath? "
" I'd like to, very much," said Annette, but when they reached a gangway they saw that the ground had become a vast garden party, and only the score board bore witness to the game.
Peter and Denis and the twins went out to the centre. A square of worn turf was roped off from the crowd and four walls of faces stared reverently at the strip of yellow between the wickets. They gazed at the dusty rabbit scrapes by the crease, like tourists in the grass-grown trenches of a Flanders battlefield.
" That's Andrews, our fast bowler," said a small boy in jackets. " He kicks up the ground like that."
" And we shall have to bat on it later," said another boy.
" They'll bump and shoot all over the place."
" It all seems so funny and small, when you get there,"
said Annette. Denis was staring at the pitch. " That's life," said Peter.

" Oh, you'll find out when you are older."

Oliver saw them. " Hullo, Peter. You've never met my people, have you ? Mother, this is Peter, and Denis Bailey."
" Miss Annette and Miss Jean Wreath," said Peter. Denis started and the cider cup passed away. " Maureen. I never thought I should see you here. You never told me you were coming."
" So you two know each other," said Mrs. Harbord.
