CHAPTER SEVEN

No one slept much on board the Sea Hawk that night. Lizbeth, moving restlessly in her cabin, could hear the men pacing up and down the deck and whispering to each other when they spoke, for Rodney had commanded silence before he left.
Ashore the blacksmiths were still at their forge under an improvised tent to hide the glow of the fire. It made them so intolerably hot that every so often they must step outside to draw breaths of fresh air and wipe the sweat from their eyes.
They had been working without a stop the whole day, but no man had asked to be relieved, for each knew without being told that the life of every man aboard the Sea Hawk depended upon the speed of the repairs. At any moment a Spanish ship sailing near the shore might spot them or the Spaniards in the harbour further along the coast might spring upon them from the cliffs above.
The Sea Hawk had been brought as near in-shore as it was possible to anchor her and the crew had worked all day at the pumps to empty the water out of her hold. Even Lizbeth, ignorant as she was of seamanship, could feel that the ship was riding more lightly now and there was once again a feeling of buoyancy about her.
It was very hot in the night without a breath of air and, even apart from her anxiety over Rodney, Lizbeth thought it would have been impossible to sleep or rest in such a stifling atmosphere. She was sorry for the men still working, but she knew that any work, however tiring, however intolerable, was preferable to a Spanish prison or to being chained to a galley until one died of exhaustion.
" Rodney! Rodney!" She wanted to call his name out loud.
In a panic, she thought that she might never see him again. The Spaniards might have captured and killed him. The idea stabbed her with a physical pain and she shut her eyes against the agony of it-Rodney!
