CHAPTER NINE

as she spoke that she would never forget the hardness of Rodney's lips on hers, the strength of his arms around her.
" That is all right, then," Rodney answered in tones of relief.
Like every man he was anxious to get away from the embarrassing subject and he put out his hand to take up the box of jewels.
" You were going to tell me about these," he suggested.
" They were hidden behind that picture," Lizbeth answered, striving to speak naturally. "Don Miguel showed them to me."
Rodney opened the box, which had not been locked again, and now he drew in his breath as he saw the jewels and realized a little of their value.
" These are worth a fortune," he exclaimed, then added, "You say de Suavez showed them to you?"
" Yes," Lizbeth replied. "They were hidden behind this picture. There is a secret panel in the wall."
" I wonder why he showed them to you ...?" Rodney
began.
Lizbeth looked away from him a little anxiously.
" But of course I know!" he added sharply. "He wanted to give them to you. He is in love with you, he has admitted as
much."
" I refused them," Lizbeth said quickly.
" How dare he?" Rodney asked. "He knows as well as I do that the spoils of a ship all belong to a common pool."
" I doubt if you would ever have found these," Lizbeth told him quietly. "If he had not shown me, I would never have guessed that anything was hidden there. You had no idea either."
Rodney looked down at the emeralds in the box and then at Lizbeth.
" He must love you very much. Were you tempted to accept them?"
" Of course not!"
Lizbeth's tone was indignant.
" I wish I could believe you," Rodney said. "Perhaps my entrance into the cabin was more inopportune than I realized at the time!"

CHAPTER NINE

"I think you are being insulting," Lizbeth said. "I told you that I had already refused the jewels. There is no point in our discussing it further."
She walked away as she spoke. She hoped, as she reached the door, that he would call her back. But he said nothing and she left him with the box of jewels in his hands, staring down at the great square-cut emerald.
