CHAPTER NINE

terrible state of affairs of pretending to be Mister Gillingham in front of the officers and the men was beginning to be distasteful and irksome, and she wished that to-night of all nights she could be Lizbeth both to Rodney who hated her and to Don Miguel who loved her.
It was vanity that made her choose Francis' best doublet of blue satin, the sleeves slashed and puffed; the ruff which went with it was edged with silver, and when she looked at herself in the burnished mirror, Lizbeth was not ashamed of her appearance.

She could hear his voice, and yet she knew the words were not spoken as she would have him say them! With a jerk she called a halt to her imagination. Rodney belonged to Phillida her half-sister. They were betrothed and Phillida was pledged to him whether she wished it or not.
With a little sigh Lizbeth put up her hands to her face and then defiantly she threw back her head and opened the door. She might do many things that were wrong, but she was not a coward. She would face Rodney to-night, and Don Miguel, however much she might shrink from doing so, however great the hurt to her heart.
She went into the after cabin. Supper was being brought to the table, and as she expected, Rodney and Don Miguel were waiting for her. Both were pale and grim and both men seemed uncomfortable at her presence. As Hapley came into the room carrying the heavy gold dishes for the first course, Rodney took his place at the head of the table, with Lizbeth on his right and Don Miguel on his left.
Supper was eaten in silence. Lizbeth afterwards had no idea what she ate or what was set before her. It was only when the servants had withdrawn and they were left alone in the soft
