CHAPTER XVII

worry about the state of the parquet. The dance was being a success. Lady Hindley had told her so. Major Carter played faster and faster and was smiling rather oddly, thought Mrs. Flightwood.
The night before Robin left, he and Denis had a long gossip in his bedroom.
" I wish you were in the library," said Robin. "It would make such a difference."
" Yes," said Denis.
" There will be three vacancies," said Robin. " Beckett is in already, as he is captain of the games."
" Yes, of course."
" Beckett will propose Warburton and Featherstone, and Swinley will probably put up Holmes-Norton and Ockley." " Yes, I see." Denis wished Robin would stop before the case of Denis Bailey came up for consideration.
" You know I put you up at the election at the end of last half. But Freeman blackballed you. He was pretty sick of you and Ockley after the Devil's Island business."
" How did he know about that ?" said Denis sharply.
" Oh, Wren asked him to find out, you see."
" And who told Freeman?"
" He pretty well knew already ; about Ockley, anyhow. It wasn't very hard to guess as you are always about with him and Harbord."
" I see," said Denis.
" Besides, m'tutor had told Freeman that it wasn't a case of being sacked. A swiping at the most."
" Quite."
" Anyhow, that's all over now. You were pretty good fools, don't you think ? "
" Absolutely bloody," said Denis.
" Don't be an ass and take it to heart. Forget about it. I'm damned well going to put you up again at the next election, and for heaven's sake, pull yourself together if you get in."
" Thanks, Robin."
" Good. I must go to bed now. It's been a delightful visit."

CHAPTER XVII

" I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. Good night."
So Robin had told Wren, or Freeman, anyhow. Robin or Taunton, and he hadn't mentioned Taunton. It must be Robin himself. But Robin was going to put him up for the library next half. Damned decent of him. Provided he pulled himself together. Denis laughed. What fools they all were.
