CHAPTER FIVE

as fast as she could across the Caribbean Sea. He was concentrating so fiercely on watching the carrack that he did not at first hear a very quiet, soft voice at his side.
" Rodney," it said, "Rodney!"
Even in his pre-occupation Rodney realized that Lizbeth was addressing him by his Christian name, contrary to her custom since she came aboard, of being strictly formal even in private.
" What do you want?"
The question was abrupt, almost rude.
" I heard Master Hales say we are running away! It can't be true. Surely you are going to stay and fight?"
" With two Spanish ships? It would be madness."
He did not know why he troubled to answer her except that it was a relief to be able to express thoughts that were seething within his mind.
" Are you afraid?"
Lizbeth's question was an impertinence which he could not allow.
" Not for myself," Rodney snarled, "but for my ship, for the men who sail with me-for you, if it comes to that."
" I would not have you play the coward on my behalf," Lizbeth replied.
" Play the coward!" Rodney repeated the words beneath his breath.
Then suddenly he lost his temper. He turned and glared at Lizbeth with such fury in his expression that almost instinctively she took a step away from him.
" Will you oblige me, Master Gillingham," he said in a voice that was perfectly audible to those standing by, "by going to your cabin and staying there? Those are my orders, Sir!"
As he finished, he turned again to his contemplation of the carrack but he knew that Lizbeth had obeyed him. And yet somehow it gave him very little satisfaction. The wind was rising, but if that was an advantage to the Sea Hawk, it also gave the same advantage to the Spanish ship.
She was chasing them now. There was no doubt about the fact that she had altered course and her bow was pointing straight at them. She was gaining, too, and Rodney calculated that in another hour she was likely to overhaul them.
