CHAPTER SEVEN

"i see that by the end of the voyage I shall be drinking water," Rodney said.
But Lizbeth did not smile in response to his jest and her brows were knit as she said :
" If only I knew more ! I have heard that the Indians know of plants with great medicinal properties. May I ask our Indian friend to find some for me?"
" You shall certainly ask him later," Rodney replied.
Lizbeth looked at him then and the same thought was in both their minds. However confident they both might be, would there be a`later' for either of them? Rodney got to his feet quickly.
" I must not linger here," he said abruptly. "There is much to be done."
" But, please," Lizbeth pleaded hastily, "will you not tell me exactly what your plans are?"
" You will know in good time," he answered.
She had a wild impulse to put out her arms to him and beg him not to go. What did a galleon matter, or the Spaniards, or the Queen herself for that matter, if Rodney were safe? Lizbeth wanted to keep him at her side. She wanted ... but what did she want?
How impossible it was to put it into words. She only knew that her whole being was beset with conflicting emotionspride, admiration mingled with fear, and some other feeling to which she could not put a name.
She thought of all she had endured during the night when she was afraid that he would never return, and knew that what she must suffer now would be infinitely worse. Her prayers had been answered once, but could she be sure they would be heard a second time?
`Stay here!' If only she dared suggest such a thing; and then courage returned to her. Rodney would succeed-she was sure of it-and she must inspire him, not try to make of him a coward or a weakling.
" He will be successful," she said the words aloud to herself and then wiped the tears roughly from her eyes.
It was, however, an hour before dark before Lizbeth really understood exactly what was occurring. A little before that
