CHAPTER X - Don Ramon and Dona Carlota

There was a moment's pause, before he answered:
`After four o'clock only.'
'Must we have that noise to-day?' Carlota persisted.
`Why not to-day like other days P he said. But a certain darkness was on his brow, and it was evident he wanted to leave the presence of the two women.
`Because the Senora is here: and I am here: and we neither of us like it. And to-morrow the Senora will not be here, and I shall be gone back to Mexico. So why not spare us to-day! Surely you can show us this consideration.'
Ramon looked at her, and then at Kate. There was anger in his eyes. And Kate could almost feel, in his powerful chest, the big heart swelling with a suffocation of anger. Both women kept mum. But it pleased them, anyhow, that they could make him angry.
`Why not row with Mrs Leslie on the lake!' he said, with quiet control.
But under his dark brows was a level, indignant anger.
'We may not want to,' said Carlota.

He withdrew his consciousness away from them as they all three sat at table, leaving the two women, as it were, seated outside a closed door, with nothing more happening. Kate felt for the time startled and forlorn, then a slow anger burned in her warm ivory cheek.
`Oh, yes,' she said. `I can start home before then.'
