CHAPTER FOURTEEN

There was a little chorus of assent as the ladies sank in a low obeisance.
" A great day," the Queen repeated, almost to herself. Then with a flash of mischief in her eyes she added, "Dux femina facti."
There was a little ripple of laughter and Lizbeth, who knew the words meant `It was done by a woman', remembered that they had been inscribed on some of the medals struck in commemoration of the victory over the Armada.
The Queen then withdrew into the inner room, followed by the Ladies of the Bedchamber.
As soon as she was out of sight, the Maids of Honour began to chatter and gossip among themselves and this was Lizbeth's opportunity. The corridor was full of shadows. She slipped behind a pillar and waited till the voices had almost died away, then sped towards the stairs.
The Yeomen of the Guard looked at her in surprise as she passed, but it was not their business to enquire what she was doing alone at this time of night ; the grooms and pages in their broidered coats of Venice gold were yawning as they wandered away to their own quarters, tired after the long hours of duty.
Lizbeth was afraid she might meet some of the older Ladies-in-Waiting; but in this she was fortunate and she reached the Hall to find no one there save Rodney standing alone, his jewelled buttons sparkling in the firelight. Lizbeth ran to him impulsively. It was hard to remember at that moment to keep a rigid control upon herself, to think of Phillida, to know that she must not betray the secret of her own heart.
" Rodney, I am so proud."
The words came unrestrainedly from her lips.
" I'm glad you were there," he said. "In truth, you should have shared it with me."
He looked at her as he spoke and she felt there was some meaning in his voice which she did not understand. Then, hastily, as if he recalled something of importance to his mind, he said:
" Come, there is someone waiting to see you outside."
