CHAPTER NINE

warm, glowing blue of the sea over which he sailed. They were the blue of the English sky in spring-a cold, rather chilly blue which made no effort to arouse and warm the blood in a man's veins.
Mentally Rodney shook himself as he walked across the quarter-deck. Phillida was the most beautiful thing he had ever seen, and he had seen a great many women one way and another as he wandered round the world with Drake. But there had been no one even in Whitehall to rival her-he was sure of it. Though he had spent but a short time in London, he had managed to see most of the acclaimed beauties-Lady Mary Howard, Elizabeth Throgmorton and the Countess of Warwick. Phillida was lovelier than any of them, and when he returned, rich and successful from this voyage, she would belong to him.
He tried to imagine what it would be like to hold her in his arms, to seek her lips, to feel the soft silkiness of her skin beneath his hands. Yet somehow, try as he would, his imagination would not serve him rightly and he could only remember Phillida pleading with him on the terrace at Camfield that their marriage should not take place too soon.
There had been fear in her expression then, and something else that he had not understood, something which made him feel vaguely uneasy.
He strode across the deck and back again, thinking how much more comfortable it was to have the greater space of the Santa Perpetua in which to stretch his legs rather than the more confined space of the Sea Hawk. His brain raced away on this new subject as if glad to be released from concentrating on Phillida.
It ranged over the great guns of the Santa Perpetua which had never ceased to thrill the Master Gunner and at which the men practised every morning ; and remembered the precious cargo lying in the hold. Now Rodney turned his head and looked back to where the Santa Perpetua trailed their latest capture-a small pinnace. They had taken her yesterday from her Spanish owner with his crew of six natives.
She was laden with hens, hogs and honey, a cargo which had been rapidly transferred to the Santa Perpetua. Rodney
