CHAPTER XXII

Denis read down the list of names and colleges in the group. He handed the paper to his father.
" I suppose it means I've failed," he said, trying to be calm.
" I suppose it does," said his father, a little calmer. Mrs. Bailey poured out coffee. Her hand shook. " I've heard from Karl," said Joan. " He's been doing a lot of ski-ing, lucky brute." Mr. Bailey walked deliberately to the sideboard, opened the dish; sniffed, speared a kipper, put it on his plate, replaced the dish cover, walked back and sat down. Breakfast passed without further conversation.
By lunch-time the feeling had worn off. At first Denis had gone cold-very cold all the way down the spine. Then very hot in the stomach and upwards. Then he had felt a terrible disgrace, which had turned to anger and had passed away in the philosophic reflection that after all what did it matter ? As he passed through Speenmouth, he ground his teeth and vowed he would never look at motor bicycles again. Richer or more industrious boys might have them. They were not for him. He might even sell his push bike and buy something for his father with the money. By the time he passed the garage on his return, he was angry with the world in general. It was the world's fault that all this unpleasantness should have happened. The motor bike in the garage window was a personal insult and he had a good mind to ask Handsome to take it away and hide it in the back somewhere. At lunch there was a certain gaiety, which coincided with his " after all, what did it matter " mood. His father talked loudly of village politics and produced a bottle of' ginger-beer, remarking that it was the first day of the holidays. Joan contributed bright comments on the Speenmouth ladies, which made Denis laugh. His mother ate less than usual, but gave Denis most of the kidneys in the steak and kidney pie. By the evening he had forgotten all about it. The Times lay neatly folded on the desk in his father's study.
" Just come in here a moment, old man," said his father after tea. His mother was in the corner of the study sofa.
