CHAPTER TWO

Phillida answered, and Sir Harry, without realizing what was occurring, agreed heartily with his daughter.
" I've made a study of the birds," he said. "Come, Hawkhurst, I would like you to see them. God's death, but I often wonder what we would do without doves in the winter, and our cook makes the best pie of them I have ever tasted. Is that not the truth, Catherine, my dear?"
But Catherine was not listening to him. She had turned to Lizbeth.
" Where is Francis?" she asked.
There was something in her voice and in her eyes which told Lizbeth all too surely that her stepmother guessed where Francis had gone. It was Catherine who had goaded Sir Harry into forbidding Francis the Keens' house in the first place. It was Catherine who would make trouble now, if she could be sure that Francis had disobeyed his father.
" Francis has gone to the stables," Lizbeth lied. "He wishes to mount the new grey which Father was talking about last night."
She saw the suspicion in Catherine's eyes change to uncertainty, while Sir Harry roared out his approval.
" By my beard, I'll make a horseman of the boy yet," he smiled. "If he can ride the grey, I'll make him a present of it. How would that be for a birthday present?"
" Francis would be delighted, Father."
Lizbeth felt miserable, even as she spoke. Francis was afraid of the grey horse, she knew that.
" We won't tell him yet," Sir Harry said; "we will keep it as a surprise. In the meantime, we will see how he manages the animal."
He turned as if he would go to the stables.
" No, do not go and watch him, Father," Lizbeth said quickly. "You know how nervous Francis is. He would fall off for a certainty if you were there. Besides, Master Hawkhurst wants you to show him the dovecot."
She looked towards Rodney as she spoke and he heard the appeal in her voice, and saw an expression almost of pleading in her eyes. Instinctively he responded to it.
