CHAPTER XVIII

" I'll see you out," said Maureen. She followed him to the door. " I may be going to stay with the Harbords again some time"
" Good. Drop in to tea again, if you care. Always at home, you know."
" Would you like me to? "
" Of course, idiot. Just send a line when you're coming. I must get back to dinner now."
" The holidays seem to have gone so quickly ; don't you think so ? "
" Oh, I don't know. I shan't be sorry to be back."
" Do you really mean that, Denis ?"
" I've enjoyed the holidays all right. But a fellow can have enough of anything. Besides, I want to see Peter and Oliver and all the chaps again."
" Yes, of course," said Maureen.
" Well, I must be going now, or I shall be ticked off for being late. Good-bye, Maureen." He held out his hand.
" And you don't mind if I invite myself to tea ?"
" I told you so. Good-bye."
Maureen touched his hand. " Good-bye ; and good luck in the scholarship if I don't see you before."
" Thanks." Denis jumped on his bike and urged it down the drive. He would be late if he didn't hurry.
Mrs. Bailey had bicycled the six miles into Barford that morning and the dining-room table was spread with all Denis's favourite dishes. Now he knew why Mrs. Mallard's farewells had been somewhat flustered. There had been a lobster salad lurking in the background of the kitchen. Hot roast chicken with French beans, and an orange trifle capped with tall peaks of whipped cream, completed the menu. By his place Denis found a ginger-beer bottle and an opener. The dinner went off fairly well.
" Just a moment before you go into the drawing-room, Denis, old man," said his father, when coffee had been finished. Coffee at Speenmouth usually meant visitors on the last night of the holidays. Mrs. Bailey hurried Joan from the room.
