had expected a tirade against her for being a traitor, but not this simple question. She was thankful she could answer him truthfully.
" No, I did not love Don Miguel," she answered, "but I was sorry for him. He was young and vulnerable. Now he will get back to Spain to his family."
" You loved him!"
There was both accusation and contempt in the words.
" If I had, I might have gone with him," Lizbeth replied. She saw a startled look in Rodney's face and the astonishment in his eyes ; then suddenly an anger that she had not felt before seemed to well up within her.
" Can you not be content with what you have got already without wanting more?" she asked. "You could have been generous and put him ashore as you put those native men who had been ill-treated. But you wanted to drag him back to England for your glorification. You wanted to flaunt your conquest. Well, you have enough without him. He is only a boy, for all that he bears a great name and owns great possessions. You have taken so much from him already that you could at least leave him his life."
