CHAPTER EIGHT

with gold. The roses on his shoes matched his doublet and were also spangled with gold; and round his shoulders was a great chain of precious stones.
For a moment no one said anything. The strange young man stared at Barlow, Lizbeth and Rodney. The latter was suddenly conscious of his naked raggedness. Nevertheless it was for him to take the initiative. Straightening his shoulders, and with a swagger he was far from feeling, he stepped forward.
" Your name, Senor ?"
He spoke in Spanish and the young man answered him in the same language.
" I am Don Miguel, son of the Marquis de Suavez, owner of this ship."
Rodney inclined his head.
" I am Rodney Hawkhurst, servant of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth of England, Commander of the Sea Hawk and also, due to capture, of the Santa Perpetua."
" I understand, Sir."
The Spaniard's tone was quiet and level. He put his hand to the sword which hung at his side. He unstrapped the belt and lifting it, handed it to Rodney in the time-honoured gesture of those who have been conquered.
Rodney took it from him and handed it to Barlow.
" Thank you, Senor de Suavez," he said: "You will, of course, consider yourself my prisoner, but we will make you as comfortable as possible until we return to England."
The Spaniard gave a little wry smile, as if he knew only too well the hardships of prison life that awaited him there.
" You are most gracious, Sir," he said. "I regret I did not hear you come aboard. Unfortunately I have been ill of the fever and the ship's doctor prescribed a sedative of such potency that I must have slept while the battle was taking place." He hesitated for a moment and then continued. "You will forgive my curiosity, but were many of the officers and men of the Santa Perpetua killed?"
" I am glad to set your mind at rest. No one was killed," Rodney replied, "except the six sentries left on board while the rest of the crew were feasting on the beach."
