CHAPTER XVI - Cipriano and Kate

in silver-coloured silk. She tangled her fingers nervously in the long brown fringe.
Really, he seemed sinister to her, almost repellent. Yet she hated to think that she merely was afraid: that she had not the courage. She sat with her head bent, the light falling on her soft hair and on the heavy, silvery-coloured embroidery of her shawl, which she wrapped round her tight, as the Indian women do their rebo7,os. And his black eyes watched her, and watched the rich shawl, with a peculiar intense glitter. The shawl, too, fascinated him.
`Well!' he said suddenly. `When shall it be?'
`What?' she said, glancing up into his black eyes with real fear.
`The marriage.'
She looked at him, almost hypnotized with amazement that he should have gone so far. And even now, she had not the power to make him retreat.
`I don't know,' she said.
`Will you say in August? On the first of August?'
`I won't say any time,' she said.
Suddenly the black gloom and anger of the Indians came over him. Then again he shook it off, with a certain callous in difference.
`Will you come to Jamiltepec to-morrow to see Ramon?' he asked. `He wants to speak with you.'
Kate also wanted to see Ramdn: she always did.
`Shall I?' she said.
`Yes! Come with me in the morning in the automobile. Yes?'
`I would like to see Don Ramon again,' she said.
`You are not afraid of him, eh? Not the bit of horror, eh?' he said, smiling peculiarly.
`No. But Don Ramon isn't really Mexican,' she said.
`Not really Mexican?'
`No! - He feels European.'
`Really! To me he is - Mexico.'
She paused and gathered herself together.
`I will row in a boat to Jamiltepec to-morrow, or I will take
Alonso's motor-boat. I 'will come about ten o'clock.'
`Very good!' said Cipriano, rising to leave.
