CHAPTER XII

filled his can from the river. Denis added a few dabs and waited. Wren rearranged his limbs on the bank. " I had a talk with Freeman some time ago," said Wren. " You seem to have altered a good deal this half, Denis ? Freeman agreed with me."
" I don't know, sir. Yes, I suppose, I hope I have."
" It is difficult to make you understand. I know you think I know nothing of what goes on in the house, but I gather-tell me if I am wrong-that you have, so to speak, lost your sense of, well, responsibility."
Denis said nothing. His tutor had never spoken so plainly. But how could he understand the intricacies of house life ? He was a beak and thought as a beak. Responsibility had nothing to do with popularity.
" Are you satisfied with your position in the house ?" said Wren.
" Yes, Sir, I think I am."
" Well, in that case, there is nothing more to be said. I suppose you know your own mind. Confound it, now the reflection has gone from that water, just as I was putting it in. But what I mean is, that in a year-I don't know how things will plan out-but there is a chance in a year's time of your being at the head of the house, and we shall be thinking of making you captain, if you stay on."
" Yes, sir," said Denis. It was too far away to think of.
" And captains have a big responsibility in the house. They have to set an example themselves, for one thing. I'm afraid you've been beaten and swished this half."
" Yes, Sir."
" Well, aren't you getting a little old for that sort of thing ?" Denis did not answer. Old for Devils' Island ? He was only just growing up and getting to know the world. Besides, old and young meant nothing. They were terms of abuse employed by beaks and parents as a last resource. They worked both ways. His mother said, " Of course, you are too old to kiss me," and his father, "Really, you're old enough to know better." But there was no use arguing. Wren simply did not understand.
