CHAPTER TEN

the rest. Rodney's share of the prize awards and his part as a shareholder would come to a truly magnificent sum.
Yes, he and Phillida could be married, and she, Lizbeth, would be left behind at Camfield to bear the ill-humour of Catherine and the miseries of Francis. Phillida talked of going into a Nunnery, but Lizbeth knew that such wild ideas had not the least likelihood of fulfilment.
No, Phillida would marry Rodney whether she wished it or not. Perhaps, when she was married, she would forget her yearning for religion and settle down and be content with the task of being a wife and mother.
With a little sob L izbeth put her face in her hands-she wanted to bear Rodney's child, she wanted to belong to him as a woman belongs to a man. She wanted to feel the strength of his arms around her again ; and then, as she remembered how fiercely he had held her, she felt the tears trickle through her fingers. Even brutal kisses were better than no kisses at all. She wanted him at that moment until her whole body ached.
How long she sat in her cabin she did not know, but after a long while she heard the ship's bell strike and knew it was nearly time for supper. For the first time since she had left England she longed for the voyage to be over. This suffering within herself was too much to be borne long. It was best for her to be home, to be somewhere she could, if only for a few moments, forget Rodney and what he meant to her.
She was to think the same thing not once, but a hundred times in the next thirty days. They sailed across the Caribbean Sea without incident, watered at Dominica as they had done on the way out, and then set sail for the Canary Islands.
The men were all excited at the thought of returning home and, though Rodney's moods were changeable, he was on the whole good-tempered and pleasant. Lizbeth should have enjoyed herself, but instead she was torn by conflicting feelings which were at war within herself. It was a bitter-sweet happiness to be with Rodney, to watch him and to hear his voice and yet to know that his feelings for her were no deeper than those of an ordinary friendship .., a friendship such as he might have accorded to Francis if he had come on this voyage as Sir Harry had commanded.
