CHAPTER X

THE DAYS PASSED AND, as I’ve said, fell into a sort of routine. When the dinner hour was over, we would go up on deck, Honey Mary and I, harlot and innocent, and there gossip and laugh like two ordinary young women, taking our exercise round and round the narrow decks, sitting in my hammock corner amidships, out of the way; or curl up on the bunk in Richardson’s cabin and there amuse ourselves as best we might with the few diversions at our disposal. My husband had forbidden me novels but we played a sort of game of alternative storytelling, each taking up where the other left off; and the men had devised us a draughts board. But Mary beat me every time. Nor was it very easy to play for we had come into real Atlantic weather, very rough with a heavy swell and the ship rolled and tilted till the draughtsmen ran sliding into her territory or mine and made a nonsense of the whole thing. So mostly we conversed and it’s wonderful to think what we could find to talk about over those weeks together, cut off from other company—for true to her undertaking, she spoke to no one else during our times up on deck and now she accepted my bringing the food to her cabin and made no more trouble over that. For the rest, I told her of my quiet country home and, dull though it all seemed to me, to her it was of intense interest to learn of a life that she had never given thought to—a life where a young woman might not lift her skirts above her ankles; where best clothes were reserved for Sunday going to church, and replaced only when new apparel for church became necessary, so that even the young girls went always soberly attired; where the events of the year were the festivals attached to the chapel, with no balls or parties, for dancing was a sin; where the heights of excitement were the picnic parties, in our home town and in those close enough by, to ride to or drive—where the mothers of eligible young men and indeed the young men themselves looked not so much to a girl’s pretty looks or charming ways, but to the hampers they produced and the excellence of the pies and cakes they handed round. ‘But surely the mothers just did the cooking themselves,’ said Mary, ‘and pretended the daughters did it?’ That church-going people would not cheat and deceive never entered that head of hers. I remembered my mother’s helpless shame as I produced my poor offerings. No wonder she had been thankful when Captain Briggs came along and, careless of such shortcomings, took one look, as I now knew, at a something in me that stirred his physical senses and out of them all, chose me. After all, he was mostly at sea with a cook in the galley; and no doubt he recognised that
