CHAPTER TEN

There was a sudden tenseness about Don Miguel which told her that he understood the reason for her question.
" Yes, I can."
" Well?"
" Well enough."
" They are going to water our ships there," Lizbeth said, aloud, still pointing. "Be ready any time after dark," she whispered.
It was dangerous to say more. She turned back and walked towards Rodney who was watching the wind in the sails, his face preoccupied, and she did not speak to him again.
Dusk was falling as they weighed anchor in the same place as on their outward voyage. Water casks were got ready to be filled at dawn and then the ship's crew watched for the Sea Hawk to come alongside them.
Supper was served as soon as Rodney was free to leave the deck. Lizbeth tried to chat brightly and easily both to him and Don Miguel. The latter she knew was on edge and she was half afraid that Rodney would guess the reason. Supper seemed an interminable meal as course succeeded course and the goblets were filled with wine again and again.
The food was not as good as it had been when they were cruising down the Darien coast, but there was fresh fish caught that very day and the salt pork which was carried aboard the Santa Perpetua was superior in every way to what Rodney had bought at Plymouth.
When the meal was finished, the guard was waiting outside the door to escort Don Miguel to his cabin on deck and lock him in for the night. He had not used the inside cabin since Rodney had taken command of the ship.
" Good night, Sir."
" Good night, Senor."
Don Miguel bowed to Rodney and then to Lizbeth. There was a meaning in his eyes which belied the words and she prayed then that she would not fail him. She stayed on in the cabin talking to Rodney for a little while and at length she rose to say good night and saw him, before she left, moving to his own quarters.
She waited for a moment outside the cabin. There was a
