CHAPTER XI

to his room. But the Periton's bath seemed a part of the house. Broad mahogany bulwarks ran round its edge and joined with the wall. And the hot and cold taps were at the side. Through a good foot of clear, steaming water the enamel gleamed brightly. At Anglersmead it was chipped and stained red. The Periton bathroom was large and overlooked the chimney pots of a mews. Denis felt very small and naked. He tried the water with his hand. It was too hot. He turned COLD and a subterranean fount of bubbles welled up in the bath. An improvement on the slow trickle of Anglersmead or the shower at Wren's, that suddenly ceased or turned to ice, when the library took too much water. Denis sank into the bath and it covered him up to the chin. He let his legs float up on the surface and rested his head on the slope of the bath. His limbs looked long and very thin in the light, slanting through the water. When he raised a limb, soft hairs lay sleek on his thigh and drifted away in the water, when he lowered it. At Wren's he was always being ragged for his lack of hair. He had started shaving at the same time as other boys and his cheeks were dark and bristly every other morning. But the skin on his chest was pink and smooth, and lower down his body a downy shadow was the only witness to his age. Robin and Taunton were well developed and liked to stand about at the bathroom door. Taunton had once invited Denis to share the dregs of the library bath, and the tale of his hairlessness had spread all over the house. Not many boys alluded openly to the subject, but he saw that they knew. If some manly subject was being discussed, Denis hesitated to join in. It seemed silly to invent stories of his prowess, when they knew. On one occasion he had shaved off the soft, curling strands that sprouted from the veins of his stomach. But so far from redoubling their efforts, the hairs had taken a month to recapture their previous length. Invain he had put Tatcho to an unsuspected use. He was now trying cocoanut oil massage in his room at night. In the Periton's deep bath the shadow seemed darker. Perhaps the hairs were growing.
