CHAPTER X

into the car and Lady Bridget and Captain Williams followed in a taxi. They reached the theatre before the curtain had gone up. Lord Periton bought a sheaf of programmes and a large box of chocolates. Denis sat between Lady Bridget and Peter. He looked round on the stalls and saw several faces he knew. There was Holmes-Norton, drawing on a pair of white kid gloves. Lord Periton did not wear gloves. He sat puffing a cigar with an air of anticipation. He was not short-sighted, but he liked the front row of the stalls, and the Eton and Harrow match was his annual excuse. One of the boxes was draped in Eton blue and swarmed with jackets and Eton collars. From the upper and dress circles a few boys looked down on the stalls and dropped chocolate papers with nice precision. Denis felt very comfortable. For the first time since his arrival at Halkin Square he felt thoroughly at home. He took a chocolate from Lord Periton's box and stretched out his feet. The orchestra looked comic in their secret basement. The conductor worked like mad as the curtain went up. Palm trees and a south sea lagoon lay before them. Across the stage pranced a row of smiling ladies, each lovelier and fluffier even than the fluffy white ball of the Devil's island cabaret.
Up flew a row of gymnastic limbs and the stalls looked critical. Denis's toes curled, when the chorus kicked and screamed in time. One goddess in particular seemed to fasten her kicks and screams on Denis Bailey. He looked quickly away down the line, but she only smiled the more meaningly and kicked as if Bailey and no one else weredefending some goal behind him. He stared at her and the colour came to his cheeks. Lord Periton puffed at his cigar. Had he noticed ? Alarming implications occurred to him, and all the time the goddess grew more gracious in her glances. Denis began to feel angry. Why should her aim be at him, when the stalls were full of people like Alec in white waistcoats and gardenias, simply longing to be kicked and smiled at ? He glared at the goddess till the scene ended. Several times through the show she fixed him with her
