CHAPTER XI

they would win. The crisis was over. A good drive for three from the other end and a couple of byes didn't surprise him. He felt cold where his vest touched his skin and his neck was suddenly sore. The winning hit itself was inevitable. It travelled quite perfunctorily to the rails. But his mouth opened with a thousand others and he clapped and cheered and waved his stick. Lord Periton's emotion was more violent. " Come on, boys," he shouted. He leaped from the coach and fought his way into the crowd surging over the field. " Well played, Eton," he roared. " Well played, Eton." The players had disappeared in the pavilion, but a fiercer game had started among the spectators with umbrellas and sticks instead of bats, and black and grey toppers in the place of cricket balls.
An old man with a curling white moustache and white spats struck Lord Periton on the hat. " Damned Etonian," he said.
" Scoundrel," cried Lord Periton. " Scug. Harrovian." With a powerful blow he shattered the crown of the old gentleman's topper. " Come -on, Peter and Denis." He slashed and whacked his way through the crowd. Minor encounters between groups of boys gave way before his onslaught. Finally he caught sight of a small Harrovian enveloped in a smashed-in topper. " Hi, Denis, help me rescue the little scug. Damn it, he's suffocating." Between them they hoisted hat and boy into the air and the latter dropped to earth.
Denis dressed quickly that evening. His tie came nicely at the second attempt. The excitement of the day and the glory of the last minute victory were still uppermost in his mind. Nothing else seemed to matter in the triumph of the moment. If he had walked into the drawing-room minus collar or tie, Lady Periton would accept it as a reasonable gesture. He had not thought much about the dance. He had been vaguely conscious, as he climbed the stairs, of a difference in the house. The furniture in the hall and on the landings had changed its character. Stiff, formal chairs now hobnobbed in couples and ashtrays pressed their close
