CHAPTER NINE

candle-light that Rodney emptied his goblet of wine and set it down with a sudden thud on the table.
He had been waiting for this moment, Lizbeth thought, waiting until he could speak freely. She knew that what he was going to say would be unpleasant.
" I have spoken to Senor de Suavez," he said to Lizbeth, "and I have told him that, since he cannot conduct himself as a gentleman, he will no longer have the liberty of the ship. He will have his meals here with us, but otherwise he will be confined to his cabin. The door will be locked and a sentry will be on guard both night and day. In these circumstances it is not necessary for me to tell you that you are to have no intercourse whatever with him. If you wish to address this man, you will do so in front of me."
" Rodney, you cannot do this!" Lizbeth protested heartily. "It is unjust. Don Miguel has done nothing to offend me, and if he has spoken of love that is my business and his. It has nothing to do with you."
" It has a great deal to do with me," Rodney retorted.
Lizbeth knew by the pulse beating in his throat that his calm, unhurried manner of speaking was only a pose. He was still angry, as angry as he had been a little while earlier when he flung her to the floor.
" You are here as a guest on my ship," Rodney continued, "and de Suavez is my prisoner. I should be within my rights if I clapped him in irons and left him down in the depths of the ship. Out of decency I have given him a place at my table, I have allowed him the freedom to talk with you and with the other officers aboard. He has abused my generosity by attempting to seduce an Englishwoman, an honoured guest, the daughter of the man who has a part share in the ship in which we sailed from England."
" I still say that what you are doing is unfair," Lizbeth said quietly. "It is unfortunate for Don Miguel that an English woman should be aboard. That is my fault, not his; and if you wish to punish anyone, you should punish me."
Her words did nothing to mitigate Rodney's anger.
" You are talking nonsense," he answered harshly. "Besides, I am not inclined to argue with you. I have told de Suavez
