CHAPTER X

" Who's your attraction in it, Alec ?" said Peter.
" Mind your own business, young man."
" You watch the chorus, Bridget, and see your rival wink at Alec," said Peter.
" Peter, you are a disgrace to the family," said Lord Periton. " I can't think what you do at Eton except read the Tatler and eat."
" Nor can I, father. Your picture is perfect."
The butler hovered again. " White wine, sir ?"
Denis looked over his shoulder. He would have preferred lemonade or water, but there seemed no alternatives. " Yes, please," he said and the butler filled his glass. " Thanks," he murmured half way, but the butler was not to be baulked. He filled the glass to the brim. Denis bent down to drink.
" My daughter tells me you are a great dancer," said Lady Periton. " You'll be able to show us to-morrow." Denis looked up quickly and a wave of white wine flowed over on the table.
" Yes, Lady Periton. I mean no, not really." He saw her trying not to look down.
" Of course, my daughter is a very keen dancer. She is always dancing somewhere."
" Yes, of course," said Denis. He took a gulp from his glass and coughed. Lady Periton decided to leave the conversation for the moment. Denis wiped the table with his napkin and felt cooler. The footman approached with a dish of vol-au-vent. Lady Bridget had already taken some. He looked at the cutlery by his plate. So far he had used a fish knife and fork and a soup spoon. It had been easy. Remaining were a big knife and fork, a small spoon and fork, and a small knife and fork. He must make a start or he would be left behind. Lady Bridget was using a fork only. Lord Periton was using a knife as well, but he could not see of what size. He pressed the side of his big fork into the pastry and sawed off a corner. He brought the large knife to the rescue and the butler said, " Claret, sir ? "
" Thanks," said Denis, without thinking. Captain Williams raised his eyebrows and Denis took a gulp.
