CHAPTER TEN

light from several lanterns, but the shadows were deep and mysterious. When she was sure that Rodney was safely behind a closed door, she hurried as swiftly as she could towards Don Miguel's cabin.
The guard was one of the seamen whom she knew quite well by sight. He was leaning against the doorpost, his arms folded, a look of boredom on his face. There was music coming from the fo'c'sle and Lizbeth guessed that he wished he could be there, singing or playing cards with the other men.
She hurried up to him with the air of one who carries an important message.
" The Captain has dropped a chart on the quarter-deck," she said. "He asks you to take a lantern, search for it, and take it to him immediately in his cabin."
" Aye, aye, Zur," the seaman answered in the slow, soft voice of a countryman which he had never lost despite years at sea; and then he glanced towards the cabin door. "Oi be on guard, ye know, Zur."
" Yes, I know," Lizbeth replied. "I told the Captain I would take your place."
" Thank 'ee, Zur."
The seaman reached up, unhooked a lantern and ran up the companion-way to the quarter-deck. It was now a question of seconds, as Lizbeth knew well. She moved swiftly to the cabin door, having already noted that the key was in the lock. She turned it quickly and then the door was open and Don Miguel stood there. They could hardly see each other in the darkness, but she felt his arms go round her, felt the pressure of his lips against hers.
" Thank you, my love, my life," he whispered before, with a swiftness she could hardly believe possible, he had sped across the deck and dived into the sea.
She heard the splash as he reached the water and then one of the sentries gave a shout. It was answered by another on the other side of the ship.
" Man overboard! Man overboard!"
The seaman with the lantern came running down the companion-way.
" What be a-happenin', Zur ?"
