CHAPTER XIX - The Attack on Jamiltepec

`Watch the stairs !' said Ramon in Spanish to her, glancing at her with farouche eyes, from some far remote jungle. Yet still the glint of recognition sparked furtively out of the darkness.
He crept to the turret, and stealthily looked out. Then he crept back, with the same stealth, and dragged the nearest dead man to the parapet, raising the body till the head looked over. There was no sound. Then he raised himself, and peeped over. No sign, no sound.
He looked at the dead body as he let it drop. Then he went to Kate, to look down the stairs.
`You grazed that man with your first shot, you only stunned him, I believe,' he said.
`Are there any more?' she asked, shuddering.
`I think they are all gone.'
He was pale, almost white, with that same pristine clear brow, like a boy's, a sort of twilight changelessness.
`Are you much hurt?' she said.
`I? No!' and he put his fingers round to his back, to feel the slowly welling wound, with his bloody fingers.
The afternoon was passing towards yellow, heavy evening.
He went again to look at the terrible face of the first dead man.
'Did you know him?' she said.
He shook his head.
`Not that I am aware,' he said. Then: `Good that he is dead. Good that he is dead. - Good that we killed them both.'
He looked at her with that glint of savage recognition from afar.
`Ugh! No! It's terrible!' she said, shuddering.
`Good for me that you were there! Good that we killed them between us! Good they are dead.'
The heavy, luxurious yellow light from below the clouds gilded the mountains of evening. There was the sound of a motor-car honking its horn.
Ramon went in silence to the parapet, the blood wetting his pantaloons lower and lower, since they stuck to him when he bent down. Rich yellow light flooded the blood-stained roof. There was a terrible smell of blood.
`There is a car coming,' he said.
She followed, frightened, across the roof.
