CHAPTER NINE

before. His mouth bruised hers, his arms were like bands of steel so that she must gasp for breath. He held her as if he would never let her go ; he held her as if he was a man starved and hungry. His kiss was frightening; and when at length he raised his lips from hers, he did not relax his hold upon her. For a moment she could not speak ; then, as he looked down at her, she saw the cruelty in his eyes and the hard savagery of his mouth ; and then he kissed her again, kissed her until at last she must cry for mercy.
" Rodney, please ... let me go! I beg of you"-but he was past hearing her.
This was not the Rodney she had known and liked, the Rodney she trusted-but another man, a stranger, a devil, it seemed, who had taken possession of the man she had thought of as a friend.
" Rodney, I pray you! God's mercy, bit ..."
She began to cry, tears of sheer fright and terror spilling themselves from her eyes and running down her cheeks so that his lips were salt with them. Then at last it seemed as though he awakened to a sudden realization of what he was doing. With a cry, which startled her by the very violence of his voice echoing round the cabin, he flung her from him.
She fell on the floor, bruised and breathless, too blinded by her own tears to see what he was doing. Then she heard the slam of the cabin door and realized that she was alone. For a moment she lay there, sobbing almost broken-heartedly, and it was the sound of her own tears which restored her self-control, which brought her to her feet.
At any moment, she remembered, Hapley might come to lay the supper table. She could not be found in such a state. She felt for her handkerchief, mopped her eyes and forced herself to quell the sobs which kept rising in her throat ; and then, unsteadily, as if the sea were rough, she made her way to her own cabin. There she locked the door and flung herself face downwards on the bunk.
How thrilled and proud she had been of her new quarters on the Santa Perpetua! But now she hated them, hated the softness of her bed, the luxury of the linen sheets, the feather pillow and warmly-woven blankets. She wished she were back
