CHAPTER XII

Eton Wick road, where the mile was run in the Lent half. It came slowly and seemed to halt till the train had passed. There was a low rumble and the Thames was beneath them. The river was blue and grey and the willows on the bank were bowed in the breeze. The train slackened speed on the curve and Denis remembered. The problem of girls was unsolved. The goods station crawled by on the right. They were at Windsor. Girls wore smart frocks and walked round the asphalt, while Eton was winning the match of the century. Girls. The train had stopped and he and Peter made a dash for a cab.
" Ah, Denis, would you care to come sketching this evening ? " said Wren, after lunch.
" Thanks, very much, sir. I'd like to."
" Right. We'll meet after school."
No work for to-morrow, thought Denis, and if it didn't rain, the lights would be good. It was kind of Wren. Monday evening after Long Leave was always a blank time. He might have played stump cricket or bowled at someone in nets. But it was hard to wake up in London and play cricket with any keenness in the afternoon.
After five o'clock school he put on a change coat and scug cap and went through into the private part of the house. Wren was searching for lost materials. He wore a long shaggy coat of no recognised shape and grey flannels.
" Ah, Denis, good, there you are. Are you ready ? Confound it, I've lost my water bottle. Ah, there it is. Come on." They strode down the drive together. From the banks of Fellow's Eyot, where Denis and his family had watched the fireworks, they took a punt across a branch of the Thames and landed near Romney Island Lock. The clouds had blown away and the air was clear and bright. A pleasure steamer rose slowly above the walls of the lock. By the further shore cranes were hoisting coal from low sunk barges and tipping it on the quay. A line of black and brown coaches of the South Western Railway stood in a siding. Blue smoke from the station drifted across the terraces of ash and birch trees, which climbed against the castle walls.
