CHAPTER EIGHT

For the first time an emotion showed on the young man's face.
" I told them feasting was unnecessary and quite ridiculous," he said irritably. "We had nothing to celebrate but a broken rudder."
" I will, of course, be only too glad to tell you all that occurred when we have more time," Rodney said, "but at the moment there is much for me and my officers to do. I would be grateful, Senor, if you would return to your cabin and stay there."
The Spaniard bowed and, passing through the after cabin, crossed to a small door on the other side. It was the fact that his sleeping cabin was through the after cabin which had prevented the men who searched the ship from finding him the night before. The other cabins were empty and Rodney's eyes lit up with pleasure when he saw the log-books, maps and charts which lay about in the Captain's quarters.
He had never seen or anticipated anything so luxurious as the officers' accommodation aboard the Santa Perpetua. He noticed with astonishment that the bunks were furnished with the finest linen sheet and there were feather mattresses toothings he had never before seen at sea. Certainly the Spaniards knew how to make themselves comfortable.
The furnishings of the after cabin brought forth exclamations of awe from both Lizbeth and Barlow. Huge tables, carved and painted, were laden with a profusion of gold and silver ornaments, while it was obvious that the Captain of the ship and his guests habitually ate off gold plate. There were soft rugs on the floor and hangings of rich velvet over the portholes, while tapestries and pictures relieved the darkness of the panelled walls.
But such wealth cried aloud danger, for the Spaniards were not likely to let such a valuable ship as the Santa Perpetua disappear from sight without a search for her.
Without wasting time Rodney told Barlow to man the Santa Perpetua with the best hands that could be spared from the Sea Hawk. He had already decided, contrary to the usual procedure, to take over the Santa Perpetua himself rather than to put in a subordinate to take charge and run it with a prize
