CHAPTER XIII

A face appeared at the door. " Stay where you are. Beaks. I'll tell you when it's safe." Denis strolled towards the masters and raised one finger in a slovenly salute. He gazed into New & Lingwood's window till the beaks had passed. In the shop the two men turned round and stared at Peter with interest. He took the two boxes of cigarettes and stowed them in his tailcoat pockets.
" All clear," said Denis, and Peter joined him.
" Collegers have to be served before us," said one of the men.
" Bloody cads," said Peter. " I think I showed them."
Denis and Peter went down a lane to the right. The lane itself was out of bounds, but it led direct to the college boathouse. From the river bank they wandered back across South Meadow.
" In two month's time the goal posts will be up," said Denis.
" I played my first game on South Meadow," said Peter.
" How silly it all seems in summer. I must say I've enjoyed this half."
" Not so bad," said Peter. " I'm glad you joined our mess. We should never have made friends otherwise."
" I suppose not."
" I always looked on you as a bit of a sap, you know. You and Manley. It only shows how wrong you can be."
" Most people did," said Denis.
" I can't think how anyone makes friends at all," said Peter. " The whole business is a bloody fluke. You make friends with people because they are good at games, or aren't. Or because they are new boys together or are in the same division and can use each other's crib."
" I messed with Featherstone my first half," said Denis. " God knows why. He asked me, I believe."
" I've made damned few friends, I suppose," said Peter. " I knew Oliver and Spencer-Mace at my private school, and I shouldn't have asked that little worm to mess, if I had known anyone else."
