CHAPTER XII

" You see, your father told me," said Wren, " when he first sent you to my house that you had got to work. Many boys in the house will never have to do anything for a living, though I don't say that they won't. Peter Ockley, for instance. But your father told me that it was essential for you to get a scholarship if you were to go up to the Varsity."
" Yes, Sir."
" And at the moment I can't see you getting one next half. By all means mess with Peter and Oliver Harbord. First rate fellows, but you must remember the difference. You've got to work for your living, and they haven't. I think that's how your father would have put it."
" Yes, sir," said Denis. There was a horrid emptiness in his stomach and a dull heat in his back. Wren had raised a doubt that after all he might be wrong. What was right for Peter might be wrong for him. He was suddenly ashamed of his visit to the Peritons. All his little triumphs in Halkin Square had been silly and vain. The hard working unsociable life was the life for him. He saw the shame of his mistake and the heat climbed to his neck. He touched up the outline of a tree and his dry brush wandered round its contour. And then he was strong again. Wren was talking about his sketch, but he did not hear him. He had remembered that every question has two sides to it and that Wren and his father could not see the other side. His father could not understand the secret of success at school. Order cards and scholarships were all right, but by themselves they did not bring popularity, and to get on in the world it was necessary to be popular. He had always looked on the world as something a little out of his reach. But now he was getting on top of it. Breaking bounds with other fellows. Socking strawberry messes. Ragging Shivers. If he had been good at games and had got a school colour, it might be different. He might get into pop. But he wasn't. Denis was confident again. In Peter's words, he was " one of them." His mother understood and sent him two dozen eggs every week. But his father was like Wren.
