CHAPTER EIGHT

"Sail ho!"
Rodney felt himself grow alerts the mists of fatigue cleared in a moment from his mind. He did not reply, he only lifted his face and waited. He knew what he wanted to hear and yet the reassurance seemed to take an unconscionable time in coming.
" It's the Sea Hawk, Sir! On the starboard bow, Sir, and making straight for us, I'm sure on it," came the cry, and Rodney gave a sigh of relief.
" A cup of wine, Sir?" a voice said at his side.
He looked down to see one of the men with a tray in his hand. On it was a jug and goblet of such exquisite workmanship that Rodney could only stare at them in amazement. Gold-chased and ornamented with precious stones which glittered in the morning sun, they seemed like something that must have come out of a palace rather than a ship's cabin. He glanced round to see the man who had brought them grinning from ear to ear.
" The after cabin's full o' such gewgaws, Sir," he volunteered. "Looks as 'ow we've struck it lucky."
Rodney picked up the goblet and drank the wine. It was rich and good and he felt it gave him new life and energy.
" Let us hope this is a sample of what the rest of the cargo is like," he said briefly, putting the goblet back on the tray. "Get the galley fire going, we all need breakfast."
" Aye, aye, Sir."
The man went off at the double and for a moment Rodney envied him-he looked so fresh and full of energy, while he felt utterly exhausted, it was no use denying it, and he despised himself for his frailty. Then he remembered that this was the third night he had been without sleep, and he felt that there was some excuse for his fatigue.
He looked towards the Sea Hawk. She was coming along steadily towards them, but her progress would be slower than that of the Santa Perpetua who had the wind behind her.
Rodney was longing to go below to explore the ship, to see more of her than could be seen from where he stood behind the wheel ; but he knew there was no one he could trust to take his place. Besides, every man was needed to work the sails.
