CHAPTER XVII

Mr. Bailey shut the front door. The house seemed very quiet and forbidding now that Peter's car had driven away. A little like Wren's study, thought Denis, when his tutor was about to begin a pijaw. He walked softly into the inner hall and sat down. He stared through the window into the drive. He wanted to sit perfectly still by himself and think. For a moment the holidays were suspended and he must give them time to reform.
Mr. Bailey came through from the hall. " Well, Denis," he said. " Going out before lunch ?"
" I don't know, father. It's going to rain, I think."
" Rain? Nonsense. A drop of rain won't hurt you. How about helping me in the garden ? There's a whole row of potatoes that want digging." His father drew on his gardening gloves and waited.
" Do you mind if I don't, father ? I think I'll stay in this morning."
" Well, get a book then. I hate to see you doing nothing. There's this month's Cornhill on the table."
" Thanks," said Denis. He picked up the Cornhill and pretended to read. " Damn," he exclaimed, when his father had gone. " Damn and blast. I'm bored stiff. Curse everything."
" Denis ?" his mother called from the drawing-room. " Is that you there ? I thought you had gone out." " It's going to rain, mother."
" Come and talk to me for a moment if you are doing nothing."
" All right." He got up reluctantly and slouched across the drawing-room carpet. Why couldn't people leave him alone this morning ?
