CHAPTER X

Annette Wreath at the moment. He wanted to explain to Maureen that he had not meant to be rude. He was always saying things that he didn't mean. But Maureen was still giggling at Oliver. Denis had never seen much to laugh at in Oliver's conversation, though he had the reputation at Wren's of being a comic sort of ass. Why must she go on laughing? Was it to annoy him? Damn. Damn. Damn. He fidgeted in his chair and an extra loud burst of cheering broke out, followed by spasmodic shouts and clapping.
" I'm going back to see what's happened," said Colonel Harbord. " Is anyone coming ?" Most of the party got up. Denis hurried to a gangway and looked at the score board. Nothing much seemed to have happened. The Ioo had just gone up and five wickets were down. Two good bats were in and the striped caps were chasing boundaries in the slanting rays of the sun. Maureen and Oliver had vanished.
" We are dining at seven-thirty," said Lady Periton, when they got back. " The show starts at half-past eight. Peter, will you show Denis his room ? Don't be late, boys."
" All right, mother. Don't get the wind up," said Peter. " And if that Alec's late, tick him off. Your room's up here, Denis. Ring if you want anything. Dinner is half-past seven and the dressing bell will go in a few minutes."
Denis shut his door. His clothes were laid out ready. It was his first dinner jacket and he had ordered it from Denman & Goddard specially for the visit. A fortnight before Lord's he had realised that he had nothing to wear at night. At Speenmouth dances a dark blue suit and pumps were more than enough. So he had slipped down town after twelve and visited Denman & Goddard's, Gane's, the bootmaker, and one of the school hosiers, and had told no one where he had been.
The new dinner jacket had been hung across the back of a chair and underneath lay a pair of patent leather shoes, the tongues rolled back, and across them a shoe horn. On the bed were his trousers and waistcoat and his new silk socks, folded socket wise. Imitation gold studs had been put into his shirt front and cuffs. On the dressing table were
