CHAPTER XIV

Peter. " Did you ever hear what happened on the first night of camp two years ago ?"
" What ?" said Denis. Peter looked at him again.
" You're pi, aren't you ? "
" Well, I don't know. Yes, I suppose I am."
" I don't care," said Peter. " It's nothing to do with me, what others are like. I can't say I'm pi myself, but I disagree with bullying other people or interfering with them in any way. And that's Taunton's little programme for this evening."
Denis said nothing. " That's the worst of it," said Peter. " It's public opinion."
" How?"
" I mean about pi and not pi. It's like making friends at school ; you don't get a chance of following your own inclinations, unless you are damned strong-minded, or a born prig like Freeman."
" No," said Denis.
" I suppose you've been laughed at for being pi ?"
" I expect so."
" And I admire you for it. Damned few people can stand up against public opinion."
" I've never wanted to be anything else, really," said Denis.
" Yes, but that's not the point. It isn't a case of wanting or not wanting with people like Taunton in the house. Or Featherstone."
" I hate Taunton," said Denis. " Because he's a hypocrite and mean all through. But somehow, I've rather come to like old Featherstone."
" He's perfectly harmless. He simply doesn't see there's anything wrong in it. He's been brought up like that. What do you expect if you go to a private school like Flaxborough ? Even the head beak was sacked for it."
" Do you think there's anything wrong with it, Peter ?"
" I don't know. I'm open minded. I'm against bullying lower boys, if they don't want to. But after all, those cases don't amount to much. I've been gone on one or two chaps
