CHAPTER XI

through the air. The band played louder. They had already played the Eton boating song and those who knew the words joined in. And then the band struck up " John Peel," and a wild scramble began. Couples galloped and slithered down the floor and crashed into each other before gathering speed for another mad dash. Denis lugged Annette Wreath into the fray. They butted into Lord Periton, who sent them flying. The music steadied and slowed into " God Save the King," and the dancers stood panting at attention. The dance was over.
It was two o'clock before Denis got to his room. He was hot and exultant. He had been a success. A chaperon had asked Lady Periton who her nice looking guest was, and Peter had ragged him about it. London dances were not so alarming after all. He held one sock in his hand and stared before him. He saw them clearly at the end of the passage. If she hadn't looked if she liked being kissed. But she obviously enjoyed it. Her mouth no longer drooped and her arms were curiously limp. He had kissed Maureen in fun, but not like this. And the thought struck him, had she expected him to kiss her and he had failed ? He had read and heard a hundred stories about kissing girls ; but they had never had much meaning. And a few minutes earlier he had been sitting on the sofa with the same girl and had been as dumb as the statue of the founder in school yard, to use Peter's expression. Denis shivered. It never occurred to him to kiss a girl he met for the first time. But they expected it. There must be something wrong with him. If he could only consult someone on the point. " Do girls expect to be kissed, when sitting out, father ?" His mother might tell him. But that begged the whole question. He ought to want to kiss them. Down through his body he should feel the same desire as other boys. And he didn't. He threw off his sock and got into bed. Blue eyes laughed at him in his dream and he leaned forward and looked into them. They shimmered in the strong sun. A white figure rubbed its hands and crept closer. He must get the ball over her head somehow. But the ball sprang

back on an elastic band. He had five minutes to reach her eyes and the elastic was contracting. The score board had a face, which laughed. One tremendous effort and the elastic snapped. He woke up on the carpet. It was much too hot for an eiderdown on the bed.
