CHAPTER TWELVE

"When I left you had just written to Mister Andrews," Lizbeth replied. "He did not help you?"
Phillida shook her head sadly. She was as lovely as ever Lizbeth noticed in the candlelight, and she had grown thinner and the corners of her mouth drooped wistfully.
" No, could not help me or was afraid," Phillida replied ; "and so there was nothing I could do but stay here and wait for ... your return."
There was a quiver in her voice which made Lizbeth know that in her mind Phillida had substituted another name. Impulsively she took the bull by the horns.
" Rodney has been very successful," she said. "He has brought back a very valuable cargo. He will be a rich man, Phillida."
" When is he coming here?"
Phillida was so pale that Lizbeth thought she might faint.
" As soon as everything is settled at Plymouth," she answered.
Phillida closed her eyes. She was beautiful, Lizbeth thought, beautiful, and Rodney loved her. They would be married, however much Phillida might shrink from the thought of it.
" I will go to London and take your place as Maid of Honour," she said.
" I do not know which is the worse of the two evils," Phillida whispered. "I could not bear the thought of waiting on the Queen, but now, perhaps, it is preferable to .., to ..."
Lizbeth knew what she was going to say and interrupted her.
" Rodney is a wonderful person, Phillida," she said. "You must make up your mind to marry him. I have been with him these past few months and I know there is no one like him in the whole world."
She could not help the throb which came into her voice as she spoke ; but she hoped that Phillida, sunk in her misery, had not noticed it.
" And what of Francis?" Phillida asked suddenly. "Has the voyage made a man of him?"
Just for a moment Lizbeth hesitated. Then she told Phillida, as she had told her father, that Francis had died in action against the Spaniards.
