CHAPTER XVIII - Auto da Fe

'Where?'
`In heaven.'
`Then in heaven there is also Quetzalcoatl. And what is in heaven is capable of coming back to earth. Don't you believe me?'
`I can't.'
`Then go on unbelieving,' said the father, laughing at them and rising to leave them.
`It is very bad that they sing songs about you, and put mama in; like about Pancho Villa,' said the younger boy. `It hurts me very much.'
`Rub it with Vapour-rub, my pet,' said Ramon. `Rub it with Vapour-rub, where it hurts you.'
`What a real bad man you are, papa!'
`What a real good child are you, my son! Isn't that so?'
`I don't know, papa. I only know you are bad.'
'Oh! Oh! Is that all they teach thee at thy American school?'
`Next term,' said Ciprianito, `I want to change my name. I don't want to be called Carrasco any more. When thou art in the newspapers, they will laugh at us.'
`Oh! Oh! I am laughing at thee now, little frog! What name wilt thou choose, then? Espina, perhaps. Thou knowest Carrasco is a wild bush, on the moors in Spain, where we come from. Wilt thou be the little thorn on the bush? Call thyself Espina, thou art a sprig of the old tree. Entonce.r, adios! Senor Espina Espinita!'
`Adid.r!' said the boy abruptly, flushing with rage.
Ram6n took a motor-car to Sayula, for there was a made road. But already the rains were washing it away. The car lurched and bumped in the great gaps. In one place a canrtdn lay on its back, where it had overturned.
On the flat desert there were already small smears of water, and the pink cosmos flowers, and the yellow, were just sprouting their tufts of buds. The hills in the distance were going opaque, as leaves came out on the invisible trees and bushes. The earth was coming to life.
Ramon called in Sayula at Kate's house. She was out, but the wild Concha came scouring across the beach, to fetch her. - `There is Don Ramon! There is Don Ramon!'
Kate hurried home, with sand in her shoes
