THE MOTHER

in and walked slowly up the stairs to her room. La Cachirra clutched at her throat to relieve the intolerable oppression of her breath. Still she waited. Now and then an extraordinary quiver travelled through all her limbs.
At last! There was a clap of light hands at the gate, and a voice above called out: "Who is it?"
" Peace!"
La Cachirra recognised Rosalia's voice. She gave a gasp of triumph. The door was opened from above, and Rosalia, entering, crossed the court-yard with a buoyant and easy step. The joy of life was in her every motion. She was about to put her foot on the stair when La Cachirra sprang forward and stopped her. She caught hold of her arm and the girl could not shake herself free.
" What do you want?" said Rosalia. "Let me pass."
" What have you been doing with my son?"
" Let me pass, or I shall call out."
" Is it true that you meet at the reja every night?"
" Mother, help! Antonio!" Rosalia cried out shrilly.
" Answer me."
" Well, if you want the truth, you can have it. He's going to marry me. He loves me, and I-I love him with all my heart." She turned on La Cachirra, trying to free herself from the vicious grip. "D'you think you can prevent us? D'you think he's frightened of you? He hates you, he told me so. He wishes you'd never come out of prison."
" He told you that?"
La Cachirra shrank back. Rosalia pursued the advantage.
" Yes, he told me that; and he told me much more. He told me that you murdered Pepe Santi; and that you were in prison for seven years; and he wished you were dead."
Rosalia hissed the words venomously, laughing with shrill voice when she saw the wretched woman shrink as though struck by palpable blows.
" And you ought to be proud that I don't refuse to marry the son of a murderess."
