CHAPTER SEVEN

all young and long-legged and, as he said to Barlow, `capable of running like the Devil'.
" Wait for them until the last moment, Master Barlow,"
Rodney instructed, "but you are not to jeopardize the safety of this ship for them or for anyone else."
" Very good, Sir."
Barlow spoke in a tone of resignation. He knew Rodney's plan was sound, even brilliant in conception, and yet he hated the part he had to play in it. He had calmly to wait aboard the Sea Hawk and perhaps put out to sea with the knowledge that both his Captain and Lieutenant were dead or taken prisoner.
" I shall leave in five minutes," Rodney said.
He went into the after cabin to make a last entry in his log-book and found Lizbeth standing by the port-hole. She turned as he entered and because he was not expecting to see her, she saw his face for a moment off guard. He was smiling excitedly as a schoolboy. He might manage to speak coldly and authoritatively to those he commanded, but just for this moment he was himself-a man in search of adventure and high adventure at that, a gambler who was staking everything on a throw of the dice.
" If only I could come with you!" Lizbeth breathed the words rather than spoke them and yet Rodney heard.
It was then it seemed that he remembered who she was and what would be her position if he were killed and the ship captured. Suddenly grave, he walked across the cabin to where she stood.
" It is not my fault that you are here," he said, "and yet I am responsible for you. If anything happens to me, Barlow is in charge of the Sea Hawk and has my instructions to take her back to England. If he should fail, then I beg of you ... do not let yourself be taken prisoner by the Spaniards."
" What do you mean?" Lizbeth asked.
" There are cleaner ways of dying than rotting in a dungeon in Seville," Rodney said; "and if they should discover you to be a woman, it ... it will not help you."
There was no need for him to say more. They both knew the fate that would await her.
