CHAPTER ELEVEN

If he was kind to her again, she thought in a sudden panic, she would burst into tears.
" Good night, sweet witch. God bless you!"
She found it difficult to find the door. She managed it, though the tears were running down her cheeks by the time she reached the privacy of her own cabin.
But they were happy tears-Rodney had thanked her! She had never expected so much from him; yet how, she asked herself, could she face saying good-bye to him to-morrow, knowing her weakness, collapsing as she did beneath his kindness where she had never quailed before his anger?
She lay awake all night, distracted by her own feelings ; and yet when the morning came, nothing was so difficult as she had anticipated. Things had begun happening from the moment they reached the Sound and Rodney, leaning over the side, had shouted to a passing vessel whose crew were staring openmouthed :
" Is the Queen alive?"
He asked the question deliberately, copying Drake, who had made the same enquiry on return home from his voyage around the world. The answer to his question came roaring across the waves:
" She's alive."
" We've beaten the thrice-cursed Spaniards!"
" The Armada has been defeated and wrecked."
It was difficult to separate the various answers, but when they had done so, Rodney and Lizbeth looked at each other and each drew a deep breath. The Armada had been defeated, that much was clear at any rate ; they could wait for details until they reached Plymouth.
They came into Harbour with the music lilting on deck and Rodney waving his hat wildly to the assembled crowds. There were thousands of people on the quay, cheering and waving to welcome them, and messengers were sent posting to London to Sir Francis Walsingham and to the Plymouth authorities to tell them of what lay in the holds of the Santa Perpetua and
the Sea Hawk.
The news of their return and the success of their voyage was not likely to be kept secret with the Santa Perpetua
