CHAPTER SIX

A ship that had sailed from Nombre de Dios to Havana would be filled with silver and gold and much valuable treasure. Rodney felt a sense of excitement growing within him. Yet what could he do about it? His own ship was crippled and even with the help of the friendly natives, he estimated that it would take several days to repair her, however hard they worked. It was too soon to think of anything except reaching safety by letting the Indian guide them to a point on the coast where they could creep along under the shelter of the cliffs to the promised harbour.
Being to the north of the Panama isthmus meant that there might be ships passing, but it was a risk to which he had no alternative. At the same time he had a feeling that his luck was going to change. Nothing could have been more fortunate than that they should have captured three friendly natives at this particular moment.
Rodney remembered there had been a revolt of the Indians in Nicaragua against the intolerable oppression of the Spaniards about thirty years earlier. It had been hopeless from the start, for the Indians were unarmed and the Spanish rulers, who had explored and taken over the country after it was discovered by Christopher Columbus, had treated the insurgents with incredible cruelty. Rodney could be sure that the Indians of Nicaragua would help him strike a blow against the might and power and brutality of Spain.
It was only when the natives had finished speaking and he turned to take them aft so they could help pilot the ship that he realized that no one had understood a word that was being said. He saw Barlow's face and felt he owed him an explanation; and then as he hesitated, realizing that time was short, Lizbeth came forward.
" Shall I tell Master Barlow what has been decided?" she enquired.
" You speak Spanish?" Rodney asked in astonishment.
" Of course," she replied, "and several other languages if they should be of any use to you."
It was a rebuke, but her lips were smiling and suddenly Rodney felt that he wanted to bury the hatchet. His anger and irritation with her vanished.
