CHAPTER FOUR

said. "I am sorry I have angered you and I appreciate the difficulty in which you find yourself, but my brother's honour and his life were in the balance."
" If your brother were here, I should like to give him what I ought to give you-a good beating," Rodney said grimly.
Lizbeth's laugh, infectious and untrammelled, seemed to echo round the cabin; and now Rodney realized that darkness had come. He could no longer see her face. He could only hear her and hate her because she could laugh while he longed only to do her physical violence. He was defeated and he knew it.
Lizbeth had come aboard ; and there was nothing he could do but accept her pretence to be her brother, and pray that no one would discover the trick which had been played upon him. Too late he cursed himself for not having behaved as he should have done and met the son of his benefactor as he came aboard. If he had seen Lizbeth then, he could have sent her away and he realized too late how he had fallen into the trap of his own ill-humour.
He could see all too clearly how cleverly her plan had worked. When the servants had brought the luggage, they must have asked if Mister Gillingham was aboard, and on being told he was they had gone away contented that the task of getting Francis to sea had been completed.
He hated all the Gillingham family, Rodney thought suddenly-Sir Harry who had decided to send him his son Francis, a weakling and a coward ; Lizbeth who was clever and wily enough to place him in this predicament from which there was no possible escape ; Catherine Gillingham with her hungry eyes and promiscuous body; and Phillida ... no, she alone was different !
Rodney sat at the table in the darkness, feeling impotent and frustrated. He could hear Lizbeth's soft breathing and was conscious of her close beside him.
She had spoiled everything, the elation he felt at taking command, the joy and sense of freedom that had been his as the Sea Hawk sailed out of harbour. All were gone, to be replaced by a feeling of apprehension, of fury and of utter incompetence to cope with it.

CHAPTER FOUR

"Get out of here, damn you, get out of here!" he cried suddenly.
He heard Lizbeth rise from the table, heard her light footsteps as she walked across the heaving floor. He heard the door open and saw her silhouetted for a moment against the light outside ; and then he was alone in the darkness, and his fingers drumming on the table made the only sound in the cabin.
