CHAPTER XVII

Denis, what's the matter with you this hols. ? You seem so bored with everything. Even Phyllis noticed it."
" Damn Phyllis," said Denis. Now Maureen was getting confidential.
" Can't you tell me ? We never used to have secrets from each other."
" There's nothing to tell. I swear there isn't."
" Have you been having a row with your family? "
" Not more than usual."
" Well, what is it ? "
" I tell you, nothing, except ..."
" Except what ? "
" That I'm fed up with this place. Fed up with Speen-mouth and Joan and Robin and everyone." Denis suddenly put the helm down and the Cormorant's bow sheared through the mud of the windward side of the channel and came to rest against the stalks of the spear. " She's all right here ; the tide's rising."
" I see," said Maureen. " Am I included in everyone? "
" Did I mention you? " said Denis.
" All right ; go on."
" That's all. I should think it's enough, isn't it ?"
" I don't know. Everyone gets bored occasionally. I hate Speenmouth at times and wished we lived somewhere elseI hate Phyllis Stetterley and most of the other girls here. They're such little cats ; and they hate me, too. They think I'm superior and put on airs, because I've read more books. Do I?" Maureen looked away at Fanny Castle, a fat grey slug in the distance. She came across and sat down in the stern, next to Denis. She put a hand on his arm. " Has it got anything to do with Eton or Peter ?" she said.
" No, why ever should it?" He glanced at her. She seemed curiously and uncomfortably close to him. He heard her breathing come quick and short and it reminded him of a fragile looking girl in a pink frock. He drew away his arm and picked up the sheet.
" Why don't you like Peter, Maureen ?"
" Who said I didn't? "
