Ramon spoke to his two moos with the guns. They went to the outer doorway, obediently.
'Why do you have to have armed men?' she said.

`It is so obvious!' he said, dropping into one of the rocking-chairs opposite her, and smiling across the onyx table.
`I suppose it is!' she said.
He clapped his hands, and his mozo Martin came up. Ramon ordered something, in a low, subdued tone. The man replied in an even lower, more subdued tone. Then the master and man nodded at one another, and the man departed, his huaraches swishing a little on the terrace.
