CHAPTER FIVE

that she should receive his confidences-he was more often than not thinking out loud and the subject chosen was seldom anything but plans for the future, all related to the daily running of the ship, and yet she was thankful for this small mercy.
She was aware that he was in a continual state of fear lest her identity should be discovered and therefore she made no effort to mix with the officers or even to be seen more than was absolutely necessary. She walked on the quarter-deck and even sat there in the sunshine when she felt she would not be in the way. Her obvious desire to be alone made the other officers avoid her, although when she did unavoidablv come in contact with them they were friendly and, as far as she could ascertain, completely unsuspicious.
At first she allowed herself to appear cowed and suitably repentent beneath the silence of Rodney's anger; but when later he began to talk and she was allowed to answer him, she found it hard to keep in check her sense of fun or to control the mischievous twinkle in her eye. It was a pity, she thought more than once, that he was so incensed with her, because they might have enjoyed being together. They could have talked quite happily, as they had talked that first morning at Camfield when she watched him stride towards her across the park, preoccupied with his own thoughts.
Once she forgot herself so far as to flirt with him in the soft light of the cabin's lantern, after they had dined.
" Would you rather tame a ship to your will, or a woman?" she asked daringly.
He smiled at the question and his eyes rested on her with the expression in them that had half-frightened and halfdelighted her at Camfield. It was the same as that which had been there that morning by the lake when she had known he had contemplated kissing her.
" Both are exciting," Rodney answered, "but of course, the joy one experiences depends both on the ship-and on the woman!"
" Yet you are confident of your ability to conquer both?" She was teasing him.
" Yes, very confident-do you doubt me?"
