CHAPTER NINE

"And it will please me if you talk as little as possible. Do you promise, de Suavez?"
" I give you my word of honour," Don Miguel answered.
His dark eyes met Lizbeth's across the table as he spoke, and she could have cried out at the misery within them. There was nothing more she could do for the moment. She had interceded with Rodney and been successful ; but she knew that he was still angry and was afraid of provoking him further.
Don Miguel rose to his feet.
" If you will permit me, I will retire to my own cabin."
" You have my permission," Rodney answered coldly. "The guard will be removed."
" Thank you."
Don Miguel's bow was frigid; then he bowed to Lizbeth and left the cabin.
" Thank you," Lizbeth said softly to Rodney.
He struck his clenched fist down on the table fiercely.
" Faith! but don't thank me," he cried. "If I had my way, I would hang the Spaniard from the yard-arm ; but I will have no one else on board guessing who you are and why you came here. There is trouble from it as it is."
Lizbeth did not answer, but rose to her feet and walking across the cabin, stood for a moment looking at the picture behind which lay Don Miguel's secret hiding place. She saw that the box of jewels had been removed from the table when it was laid for supper and put on a chest beneath the picture itself. She wondered if Rodney had looked at them or whether in his anger he had ignored them as he had done when she first tried to tell him about them.
And then she started as she heard his voice behind her, not having realized that he had risen from the table. "Lizbeth, I am sorry."
His voice was quite humble now and there was no anger in it. She looked up at him and saw that his face had changedthe arrogance had gone, instead he looked like himself again.
" I am sorry," he repeated. "I should not have behaved to you as I did, but you drove me beyond endurance."
" We will forget it," Lizbeth said in a low voice, knowing
