CHAPTER THIRTEEN

"I have told Father about Francis!" She saw the surprise in his face, and added quickly: "I have told how he died aboard the Santa Perpetua in our fight with the Spanish galleons. I have told them all how brave Francis was and how proud we were of him."
She saw Rodney's expression change and knew that he understood. She felt his fingers tighten on hers comfortingly, reassuringly, and then easily he turned to Sir Harry.
" I am sorry, Sir, that we had to bring you bad news as well as good."
Sir Harry put a heavy hand on Rodney's shoulder.
" I am proud to have given my son in such a cause," he said. "We will speak further of it another time. We must not let our personal sadness dim the gladness you feel on your arrival here."
Lizbeth drew a deep breath of relief, the awkward moment was passed over. Wine and fresh dishes were brought to the Banqueting Hall. It seemed to Lizbeth for a moment as she listened to Rodney talking to her father that they might once again be seated round the table in the after cabin.
But Phillida was there listening, too. There was a faint colour in her cheeks and her lips were smiling as they had not smiled for a long time.
" She will learn to love him," Lizbeth said to herself, and was startled by the pain she experienced at the thought.
Rodney was talking in the way she knew so well, gesticulating occasionally with his hands, but needing no gesture to underline the fire and purpose behind his words. Lizbeth, who had heard him so often, could see now the effect of his words on the other members of her family.
Sir Harry was leaning back in his chair, comfortably at his ease, yet attentive to everything that was said. Catherine, with her arms on the table, her chin cupped in her hands, was watching Rodney's lips as he spoke, her eyes narrowed a little, her own mouth twisted enticingly; and Phillida was listening, too !
Lizbeth, watching her half-sister, saw that she was entranced by Rodney's stories. She was leaning forward a little in her chair, the exquisite poised grace of her neck and shoulders
