CHAPTER III - Fortieth Birthday

Mirabal, in curiously resonant English, with a French accent. `Don't you think it would be wonderful if the gods came back to Mexico? our own gods?' He sat in intense expectation, his blue eyes fixed on Kate's face, his soup-spoon suspended.
Kate's face was baffled with incomprehension.
`Not those Aztec horrors!' she said.
'The Aztec horrors ! The Aztec horrors ! Well, perhaps they were not so horrible after all. But if they were, it was because the Aztecs were all tied up. They were in a cul de sac, so they saw nothing but death. Don't you think so?'
`I don't know enough!' said Kate.
`Nobody knows any more. But if you like the word Quetzalcoatl, don't you think it would be wonderful if he came back again? Ah, the names of the gods!
