CHAPTER ONE

Nanna grumbled, unlacing Lizbeth's dress as she spoke. "Now Mistress Phillida gets on happily with her Ladyship. Never a cross word between them."
" Oh, Phillida! Phillida would get on with anyone," Lizbeth said. "You know that as well as I do. Why, she lives in a world of her own. And she doesn't care what happens to any of us. If the house fell down, I believe she would just walk quietly out and sit among the ruins. She doesn't like anything, she doesn't hate anything, she just exists. If I were like that, I would throw myself in the lake."
" 'Tis a pity you are not a little more like it," Nanna answered severely. "But there, you were always the same as a baby-screamed yourself into d fit if you didn't get what you wanted the moment you wanted it. Many a time I have told your mother, `That child will take a lot of rearing, she will' ; and sure enough, you were the difficult one. Master Francis was as placid and happy a baby as ever there was, Mistress Phillida as good as gold, and you a little limb of Satan himself."
Lizbeth laughed.
" Oh, Nanna, you would have hated me to be any different. You know you would."
" I'm not saying I don't love you as you are," Nanna answered, "but I'm not so old that I'm blind to your faults, and there's plenty of them for those who look for them. HOw hurry or you will be late for supper. 'Tis ten minutes to six and you know what your father says if people are late."
" I will not be late," Lizbeth said confidently. "Why have you brought me my best dress? I thought that was to be kept for very special occasions."
" This is a special occasion," Nanna replied. "With Sir Francis Walsingham's god-son staying in the house and as fine set-up a young man as ever I did see, too. You should be thinking of your appearance instead of complaining about her Ladyship."
" Thinking of my appearance?" Lizbeth asked. "Why particularly?"
" Because there is a handsome young man to look at you. It's time you were thinking of such things and not ramping about like a veritable tomboy."
