She turned from him as she spoke and, crossing the cabin, seated herself on the one chair left empty at the far end of the table. She made it clear to Rodney what course she expected him to take and for the moment, his brain in a whirl, he could think of nothing better to do than to return to his own seat.
Lizbeth was now speaking to the officers.
" May I introduce myself, Gentlemen?" she said. "I am Francis Gillingham, as Master Hawkhurst may have told you.
They all bowed as was expected of them and then, the formalities dispensed with, they looked to Rodney and waited for him to finish his speech.
What he said after that he really had no idea. He supposed that almost automatically his voice spoke the thoughts which he had planned earlier in the day. He knew, though, that the fire and spirit with which he intended to deliver this oration was lacking, so that the attention of the officers wandered and the Surgeon's cough seemed, from time to time, to drown his voice.

" That will be all, Gentlemen. There is, I know, much for you to do this evening."
They rose automatically to their feet, Lizbeth with them. Then, as she reached the door, Rodney said :
" You will remain behind, Master Gillingham."
She did not answer, but stood waiting till the officers had filed from the cabin and the door was closed behind them. It was then, as it seemed to Rodney, that the cabin grew even darker and he could see only the whiteness of her face against the darkness as he asked hoarsely:
" Why are you here? Where is your brother? What does this mean?"
Lizbeth came forward, moving until she reached his side.
