CHAPTER FIVE

Sea a rest in the past few years. It had been considered too dangerous to challenge the Spanish forces there; but Rodney thought it was worth trying to see if there was any chance of slipping into port and snatching some of the treasure before it was loaded.
If he failed in this, he could cruise down the Darien coast where there was always plunder to be found. He had hopes that natives might help him with information, but like everything else in the chancy work of privateering, one could not make too many plans ahead. One had to wait and see what circumstances were and seize an opportunity when it came.
The Sea Hawk reached Dominica late that afternoon and anchored in a small bay, sheltered by a high cliff. There was water in plenty, for the land was white with mountain streams. The crew were all itching to explore the tree-covered hills, but Rodney insisted on the ship being watered first before anyone was allowed to stretch their legs or look for tropical fruit. He was well aware that it was dangerous to linger near these islands. The Spaniards might be on the look-out and he gave orders that the ship was to be kept ready to sail at any moment.
Another reason for getting under sail as quickly as possible was that the inhabitants of the island, the Caribs, were cannibals. A cruel, ferocious, warlike people, they had made a stout resistance to the Spaniards and seamen of all nations calling at Dominica found it wisest to avoid any encounter with them.
The place was lonely, with only sea birds swirling and calling overhead. They stayed the night, raised anchor the next morning and sailed into the Caribbean Sea. For the next twelve days they were without a sight of land or the sail of another ship. It was very hot and Lizbeth felt sorry for the men who must hurry and run about the decks, pulling on the ropes, lowering or raising the sails with the sweat trickling down their half-naked bodies.
Yet the heat made her feel strangely sensuous. She longed for wild, impossible things which had never entered her head before. She dreamed strange dreams-dreams of Rodney, so that sometimes she blushed when she looked at him the following morning.
