CHAPTER TEN

The question died on his lips as he saw the open cabin door. He must have guessed what had happened or he may have seen Don Miguel himself as he dived overboard. After that it seemed to Lizbeth that everything became incoherent. Men were shouting and running about the decks. As she knew only too well, few of them could swim and the few who could waited for definite orders before going after the escaped prisoner.
By the time Rodney had been fetched from his cabin Don Miguel had a good start.
" What has happened? I do not want all of you to speak at once," he said sharply as a babel of sound arose. "Master Gadstone, perhaps you will explain?"
Gadstone had come running up only a few moments before Rodney himself and knew only one important fact.
" The prisoner has gone, Sir."
" Who? de Suavez ?" Rodney asked, and then saw the open cabin door and the men crowded round it.

He turned as he spoke to walk back to his cabin. He did not command Lizbeth to follow him, but she did so. In the light of the candles she could see his face grim and set and for a moment she was afraid of him physically. He stood waiting and it was with a tremendous effort that she forced her eyes to meet his.
" You let him go," Rodney said.
It was a statement, not a question. Lizbeth nodded. She felt somehow she could not explain to Rodney what she felt about Don Miguel. For one thing, he would not understand. He was used to hardship and he would only despise a man who could find the hardships of prison intolerable.
" You loved him?"
Rodney's question took her completely by surprise. She
