CHAPTER XVIII

" I expect you young gentlemen have some rare old times together," said Mr. York.
" A good many more than you imagine, York. Eton's jolly good fun, I can tell you."
" It only seems like yesterday that the holidays began, don't it, Mr. York ? "
" And Master Denis and his young friend arrived all dressed for the war, wasn't it, sir ?"
" Damned good sport, camp," said Denis. Mrs. York shook her head at her husband. " We shan't be knowing Master Denis soon, what with sailing and soldiering, and now I hear your father is going to give you a motor bicycle for Christmas."
" If I get a scholarship at Cambridge."
" Ah, you'll soon be grown up now, sir," said York. Denis smiled knowingly and said good-bye. As he hurried away, he thought how dull it must be for the Yorks, living on in their cottage, doing the same things every day, and with no hope of growing up and doing grander things, as he was going to do. That was why they said good-bye so hurriedly to each other, lest such awkward truths should come to light.
Before dinner, Denis biked up to see Maureen. He was in excellent spirits and refused to be depressed by Mrs. Roxburgh's well-meant sympathy.
" No, I'm looking forward to this half like anything," he said. " I'm specialising in history and it ought to be fun."
" Your father tells me you are trying for a scholarship at Cambridge," said Mrs. Roxburgh.
" I'm having a shot. I don't know whether I shall get it."
" He said he thought you had a fair chance," said Maureen.
" There's a pretty stiff competition, but I've got over ten weeks to work for it, and I've got another chance if I fail anyhow."
" Oh, you won't fail," said Maureen. " You've simply got to get it ; for your father's sake, and you will."
" Yes," said Denis. " I must be going now."
