"Don't mind me a bit, Becky!" cried Ermengarde.


She turned to the Lascar, feeling glad that she remembered still some of the Hindustani she had learned when she lived with her father. She could make the man understand. She spoke to him in the language he knew.

"You must promise not to be frightened--not to scream the least bit, or I can't tell you," she answered.
