CHAPTER NINE

what to expect, a guard has already been put outside his cabin ; there it will stay till I can hand him over to the authorities in England."
It seemed to Lizbeth that Don Miguel paled a little. He made no protest, but Lizbeth was not prepared to be over ridden by Rodney's authority. She loved him, she thought, watching his face m the light of the candle, and yet she was
able to see his faults. He was being hard and ungenerous over this. He was being unjust and using his authority in the wrong way just because his anger was aroused.
Perhaps there was something of pride in it, she thought, and perhaps pique, too, because Don Miguel had discovered the secret of her sex. Whatever his reasons, she was not prepared to accept them; and pushing back her chair a little now, she said:
" To make different arrangements now as to the custody of Don Miguel will cause comment in the ship. The men will begin to speculate as to what has happened ; and if people are anxious to solve a mystery, there is usually a mystery to be solved.
" We all make mistakes, and perhaps Don Miguel made one this evening when he told me of his feelings. Shall we say that he should have controlled them; but other people also lose control of themselves but are not punished so harshly."
She was being particularly daring in what she was saying, she knew that. Nevertheless she knew that her arguments were having their effect on Rodney. He was frowning, his brows knit together. She could see him considering her words, and wondering if in reality he was being unwise to alter the arrangements about his prisoner.
" V, cry well," he said at length, "I will agree to this on one condition only, that you both give me your word of honour that you will never be alone together in this cabin or in any other place where you are not within hearing of someone else."
There was a little pause and then quickly, because Lizbeth knew that the concession had been a great effort to Rodney's pride, she said:
" I agree. Don Miguel and I will not be alone. When we talk together, there shall always be someone within hearing."
