CHAPTER IX - Casa de las Cuentas

And a god who is forever accessible to human beings has an unenviable time of it, Kate soon discovered.
No, it was no sinecure, being a Niiza. At dawn began the scrape-scrape of the twig broom outside. Kate stayed on in bed, doors fastened but shutters open. Flutter outside! Some body wanted to sell two eggs. Where is the Nina? She is sleeping! The visitor does not go. Continual flutter outside.
The aguador! Ah, the water for the Nina's bath ! She is sleeping, she is sleeping. `No!' called Kate, slipping into a dressing gown and unbolting the door. In come the children with the bath-tub, in comes the aguador with the two square kerosene
cans full of hot water. Twelve centavos! Twelve centavos for the aguador! No hay! We haven't got twelve centavos. Later! Later! Away trots the aguador, pole over his shoulder. Kate shuts her doors and shutters and starts her bath.
`Nina? Nina?'
`What do you want?'
`Eggs boiled or fried or rancheros? Which do you want?'
`Boiled.'
`Coffee or chocolate?'
'Coffee.'
`Or do you want tea?'
`No, coffee.'

And Juana stooped down, fascinated to touch with her black finger Kate's white soft feet, that were thrust in light sandals, just a thong across the foot.
The day had begun. Juana looked upon herself as dedicated
