CHAPTER SIX

"I felt the same thing," Lizbeth said.
They smiled at each other like conspirators.
" He is a fine man," Master Gadstone said. "One day I hope to be like him and I, too, will have a ship of my own."
There was a warmth of hero-worship in the young man's voice.
Lizbeth watched him hurry away to his duties. He was handsome enough, young, virile and doubtless extremely attractive to women, but she felt no secret stirrings within her heart as she talked with him.
With Rodney it was diflerent ; never could she be indifferent to him. He made her furiously angry, he made her tingle with apprehension, he made her tremble, but never could she ignore his presence.
She wondered why he was so different from other men, and remembered the fury in his face when she defied him-he had looked as if he would strike her. Something within Lizbeth quivered at the thought-but it was not fear she felt.
Lizbeth's expression was serious and a few minutes later she slipped up on to the after-deck. Rodney was there with the three natives. The ship, now heavy and difficult to handle, was coming slowly to the lee of the shore. The water was calm, but it was only a question of time, Rodney knew, before the ship would be completely waterlogged.
Slowly and with really brilliant seamanship he brought her, through a narrow channel of rocks into a small natural harbour. There was a sandy beach, high overhanging cliffs, and partial protection from the open sea by a coral reef.
They dropped anchor about noon and though everyone was tired from lack of sleep and Rodney felt as if his eyes were burning in his head, within an hour of their arrival they had the forge out on the beach and the smiths and the carpenters were getting ready to make the necessary repairs to the Sea Hawk's side.
It was not going to be an easy job, that was obvious from the first moment the damage was assessed, but skilled men could manage it. What was more worrying was that a great many of the ship's stores had been ruined by salt water. Not all their provisions were down below for space had been
