CHAPTER XVI

" Good shot," she exclaimed, as Denis made a wild smash, which pitched improbably on the base line.
" I say, I didn't mean that, Maureen," said Joan. " As a matter of fact, I think Denis has changed altogether, since I last saw him. Don't you agree ?"
" I suppose he has."
" I mean, he's so much harder and more grown up. I don't understand him as I used to."
" You've changed too, I think," said Maureen. " That's probably why."
" Yes, but Denis and I were such tremendous friends. He even told me about Eton, before I went to Geneva. But he and Peter seem to enjoy having jokes between them, which they don't want to share."
" I expect it's only because we're girls," Maureen smiled. Mrs. Bailey came up to them.
" Will you come in to tea now? " she said. "Joan, will you bring in the others ?"
" Right, mother. That's exactly it, Maureen. He seems to despise us."
On the last Saturday of Peter's visit, he and Denis played in a local cricket match. Every week during the holidays Lady Hindley raised a team from the neighbouring youth, and Denis was the most regular if not the most reliable of the Amplehurst players. The portico of Amplehurst Park resembled the Haymarket Theatre and was more important than the interior of the house. On Saturday afternoon a few bicycles and one motor bike leaned against the trees in the front drive. The butler stood waiting just inside the door. Denis and Peter propped their bikes against a bench and followed the butler through a series of rooms, which opened into each other. Owing to small islands and promontories of Victorian furniture it was quite impossible to determine their size. Sometimes they seemed enormous ; but more often Denis had a feeling of cramped confinement. Once he had a nightmare, in which he was always running through room after room of Amplehurst and the chairs and china and photographs on their
