say, you ruined his best hat, he has every reason to be annoyed with you."
" And yet he was not annoyed with me," Lizbeth replied ;
" ... he kissed me!"
She spoke the last words so low that Francis did not hear them.
He had closed his eyes languidly and when he opened them again he was alone, and Lizbeth, creeping from bush to bush, was making her way towards the house.
She reached it without being observed and ran upstairs to her own bedchamber. She opened the door expecting an empty room, but instead, her nurse was there, laying out a dress and muttering to herself as she did so. Nanna was old and her once rosy cheeks were wrinkled now like a shrivelled apple.
" Oh, there you are, Mistress Mischief!" she exclaimed as Lizbeth entered. "Where have you been, I should like to know? Her Ladyship was crying your name all over the house and exceedingly vexed she was when you could not be found. And a good thing for you she didn't find you looking like that. What have you done to yourself?"
" I ran out of the store cupboard, washed my hair and went outside. It was a lovely day. Why should I be kept indoors looking at ginger, cloves, raisins, almonds, spices and figs, and all the other dull things which Catherine keeps in the store cupboard?"
" Her Ladyship's a good housekeeper, I'll say that for her," Nanna replied.
" Not as good as my mother," Lizbeth said quickly.
" Now, dearie, you know as well as I do that your sainted mother was ill for three years before she died, and there was a lot to be seen to in the house when her Ladyship came here. She's got her faults, I'm not saying she hasn't, but she's house-proud and that's a virtue in any woman, and well you know it."
" I hate her," Lizbeth said.
" Hush! Hush!" Nanna looked over her shoulder as though she feared someone might be listening.
" I hate her and she hates me," Lizbeth cried.
" Why you can't be more like your half-sister I don't know,"
