CHAPTER XVII - Fourth Hymn and the Bishop

`Not yet,' she said.
Ramon laughed, and flung himself into a chair.
`The Senora Caterina thinks we are all monkeys, but perhaps this particular monkey-show is the most amusing after all,' he said. 'So she will see a little more of it.'
Cipriano, a real Indian, was offended in his pride, and the little black imperial on his chin seemed to become portentous.
`That's rather an unfair way of putting it!' laughed Kate.
The black eyes of Cipriano glanced at her in hostility. He thought she was laughing at him. And so, at the depths of her female soul, she was. She was jeering at him inwardly. Which no man can stand, least of all a dark-skinned man.
`No!' she said. `There's something else beside that.'
'Ah!' said Ramon. `Take care! A little mercy is a dangerous thing.'
`No! Not mercyl' she said, flushing. `Why are you being horrid to me?'
'Monkeys always end by being horrid to the spectators,' said Ramon.
She looked up at him, and caught the flash of anger in his eyes.
`I came,' she said, `to hear about the Mexican pantheon. I was even given to understand I might be admitted.'
'Ah, that is good!' laughed Ramon. `A rare specimen of the female monkey has been added to the Ramon menagerie! I am sure you would be a good draw. There have been some pretty goddesses, I assure you, in the Aztec pantheon.'
`How horrid!' she said.
`Come! Come!' he cried. `Let us keep to the bedrock of things, Senora mia. We are all monkeys. Monos somos. - Ihr seid alle Affen! Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings was it spoken, as Carlota said. You see that little male monkey, Cipriano. He had the monkey's idea of marrying you. Say the word. Marriage is a monkey's game. Say the word. He will let you go when you've had enough; and he's had enough. He is a general and a very great jefe. He can make you monkey-queen of monkey-Mexico, if it please you. And what should monkeys do, but amuse themselves! Vamos! Embobemonos! Shall I be priest? Vamos! Vamos!'
He rose with sudden volcanic violence, and rushed away.
