CHAPTER XIX - The Attack on Jamiltepec

common in the country, as if everyone were afraid to speak aloud, so they murmured guardedly. This was unusual, and Kate noticed it in him with displeasure. She sat looking past the thick mango-trees, whose fruit was changing colour like something gradually growing hot, to the ruffled, pale-brown lake. The mountains of the opposite shore were very dark. Above them lay a heavy, but distant black cloud, out of which lightning flapped suddenly and uneasily.
`Where is Don Cipriano?' she asked.
`Don Cipriano is very much General Viedma at the moment,' he replied. `Chasing rebels in the State of Colima.'
`Will they be very hard to chase?'
`Probably not. Anyhow Cipriano will enjoy chasing them. He is Zapotec, and most of his men are Zapotecans, from the hills. They love chasing men who aren't.'
`I wondered why he. wasn't there on Sunday when you carried away the images,' she said. `I think it was an awfully brave thing to do.'
`Do you?' he laughed. `It wasn't. It's never half so brave to carry something off, and destroy it, as to set a new pulse beating.'
`But you have to destroy those old things, first.'
`Those frowsty images - why, yes. But it's no good until you've got something else moving, from the inside.'
`And have you?'
`I think I have. Don't you?'
`Yes,' she said, a little doubtful.
`I think I have,' he said. `I feel there's a new thing moving inside me.' He was laughing at her, for her hesitation. 'Why don't you come and join us?' he added.
`How?' she said. `By being married off to Don Cipriano?'
`Not necessarily. Not necessarily. Not necessarily by being married to anybody.'
`What are you going to do next?' she said.
`I? I am going to re-open the church, for Quetzalcoatl to come in. But I don't like lonely gods. There should be several of them, I think, for them to be happy together.'
`Does one need gods?' she said.
`Why yes. One needs manifestations, it seems to me.' Kate sat in unwilling silence.
