" No wonder Spain is arrogant with such riches at her command!" Rodney muttered.
" We have tried to be the friend of England," Don Miguel said.
" You tried to rule us," Rodney retorted.
The Spaniard shrugged his shoulders.
" Friendship between nations is like marriage," he said.
" One always has to be the master."
Rodney laughed.
" Your King might master Mary," he said, "but Elizabeth is a different proposition. No man will ever get the better of her, as no nation will ever get the better of England."
" We shall see," the Spaniard remarked, and both Lizbeth and Rodney knew that he was thinking of the Armada.
For a moment there was a touch of fear in both their hearts. What might not have happened while they had been away from England? Lizbeth was silent as she remembered the stories she had heard of the great galleons twice the size of the Santa Perpetua, waiting their chance to come sailing up the Channel with all the power, majesty and wealth of Spain behind them.
But Rodney was recalling how Drake had `singed the beard of the King of Spain' in his assault on Cadiz harbour last year. The Spanish galleons, ponderous and unwieldy, encumbered by the very heaviness of their armament, had been useless against the speed, quickness and manoeuvrabiilty of Drake's smaller ships. Over a hundred ships had been destroyed that day. The Spanish Armada might appear formidable, but the English would outwit the Spaniards wherever they might meet them, he decided ; but out of courtesy he did not voice such sentiments aloud.
It was impossible, even though he might be an enemy, to dislike Don Miguel. He had a charm which nothing could deny, not even the blind hatred of those who averred that every Spaniard was a devil and a brute.
Lizbeth had grown so used to hearing the most horrible and bestial things about the Spaniards that at first she shrank from Don Miguel, allowing her preconceived ideas to smother
