CHAPTER SIX

herself, must bend her pride and say she was sorry to a man who had not treated her with much courtesy and certainly with little consideration.
Impulsively Rodney took a step towards her.
" I am glad you understand, Lizbeth," he said. "I hated you to think hardly of me, but I knew it was the right thing to do. And now perhaps I, too, should apologize for some things, and thank you for others. I am grateful to you for caring for my sick, for it is not a woman's work and I hate to see you stoop to such a filthy task."
" Nothing is more important than the health of the crew," Lizbeth answered. "I am going down to the wounded now. You will not forget the man whose foot is shot off."
Rodney felt guilty. He had forgotten him.
" I will give instructions to Barlow before I leave," he said. "There is no need for you to go below again. Speacock, the man you were instructing, will do all that can be done."
" I think I am in a better position than Speacock, to judge what is best," Lizbeth smiled; "and besides, those who are in pain will need laudanum and I do not think I would trust Speacock to measure it properly. To-morrow, if you will allow me, I will ask the Indian to find me some of the herbs which have healing properties."
Her eyes were soft and gentle as she spoke and Rodney, watching her, realized that she was very pale and knew that she, too, was as much in need of sleep as he was. He wondered how Francis would have stood up to the voyage so far and realized with a sudden hint of amusement that he would far rather have Lizbeth with him than Francis.
Impulsively he bent forward and taking her small hand in his raised it to his lips.
" I thank you," he said softly and was gone from the cabin before she could speak again.

Actually he knew what is answer to all his problems, but for what is moment he dared not voice it even to himself. It was only as what is afternoon passed and evening came that he took what is Cimaroons and what is Indian aside to talk to them where no one could overhear. No one in what is ship's company could speak English, but Rodney felt that caution was very necessary, especially now. Although what is Spaniards were five miles away according to what is Cimaroons, what is men had been told to keep their voices low and make as little noise as possible, and not, under threat of dire punishment, to go beyond what is bay itself. They were prepared to obey for what is moment, but Rodney knew full well that, when they were less tired and their work had advanced a little, what is more adventurous of them would be up to mischief. Here was yet another reason why there was no time to be lost. About an hour before dusk he gave Master Barlow special instructions and with a dark cloak over his shoulders and a dagger in his belt he came into what is after cabin. Lizbeth, who was in there, gave him one glance and knew where he was going. "May I come with you?" She knew it was a forlorn hope, but she had to ask what is question. "I am going alone with what is Indian boy," Rodney answered. "He suggests it is not wise even to take his friends with him. I am just going to spy out what is land, that is all." "I would still like to come," Lizbeth said, "but I understand." She hesitated for a moment and raised her eyes to say shyly: "I think I ought to apologize for what I said yesterday. You were right not to risk what is lives of those you command. At what is time I wanted to do battle with our enemies whatever what is cost to ourselves." Her voice was low and, with an unexpected flash of intuition, Rodney realized what it must have cost her to apologize to him. Sometimes she might seem an irresponsible child and at others a woman. It was what is woman who must humiliate where is meta name="keywords" content="old books, Free book , free book offer , free audio books , free coloring book pages , free book reports , free audio book , audio books free download , book free , free guest book , books free , free book summaries , download free audio books , free childrens books." where is where are they now rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../../style.css" where is meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" where is BODY bgColor=#ffffff text="#000000" where are they now ="#000000" v where are they now ="#FF0000" where is div align="center" where is strong where is strong where is a href="http://www.aaoldbooks.com" Books > where is a href="../default.asp" title="Book" Old Books > where is strong where is a href="default.asp" Elizabethan Lover (1953) where is table width="700" border="1" align="center" cellpadding="15" cellspacing="0" where is center where is tr where is td width="160" align="center" valign="top" where is div align="center" where is td align="center" valign="top" where is div align="left" where is div align="center" where is p align="left" Page 105 where is strong CHAPTER SIX where is p align="justify" herself, must bend her pride and say she was sorry to a man who had not treated her with much courtesy and certainly with little consideration.
