CHAPTER NINE

"Another offering for the Conqueror," he said.
The cabin door closed behind him. There was a long silence -a silence in which it seemed to Lizbeth as if Rodney must hear her heart beating. She had never before seen him look so stern, and she thought for the first time that she was really afraid of him. And then hastily she told herself that such an attitude was ridiculous.
With an effort she forced herself to point towards the box on the table which Don Miguel had indicated as he left.
" There are jewels there, Rodney," she said, trying to speak naturally, but her voice quavered. "Jewels that you had not yet seen."
" I am not interested in jewels," Rodney answered. "I am waiting for an explanation."
He was like a stern tutor, Lizbeth thought suddenly, and despite the beating of her heart she managed to answer him.
" I am sorry that he should have discovered that I am not a boy," she said. "I promise you that I did not tell him. He just knew it. I think perhaps that foreigners are more perceptive than Englishmen."
" How did he discover it?" Rodney asked.
" I have no idea," Lizbeth replied. "He told me that he had known it almost from the first moment that he saw me." She looked at Rodney's face, and seeing the anger in his eyes and the tightness of his lips, added again, "I ... I am sorry, Rodney."
" God's words! Sorry!" He almost shouted the words at her. "So it appears when I come in here to find you in a Spaniard's arms."
Lizbeth had expected him to refer to this and yet, now he had done so, the colour came flooding up into her little face. It made her eyes seem vividly green, as with a tremendous effort she forced herself to face him and say in a low voice :
" I am sorry for that, too. It ... it was quite unexpected ... and uninvited."
" I am glad to think that it has not been happening for some time behind my back," Rodney remarked sarcastically.
" No-never before," Lizbeth answered. "I ... I had no idea that ... Don Miguel was in love with me."
" In love with you!" As if to relieve his feelings, Rodney
