CHAPTER XIX - The Attack on Jamiltepec

the bandit was he! And that twilit brow, and those remote eyes, like a death-virgin, was he. Even a savage out of the twilight ! And the man that knows me, where is he? One among these many men, no more! Oh God! give the man his soul back, into this bloody body. Let the soul come back, or the universe will be cold for me and for many men.
The doctor finished his temporary bandage, looked at the wound in the arm, swiftly wiped the blood off the loins and buttocks and legs, and said:
`We must put him in bed. Lift his head.'
Quickly Kate lifted the heavy, inert head. The eyes were half open. The doctor pressed the closed lips, under the sparse black moustache. But the teeth were firmly shut.
The doctor shook his head.
`Bring a mattress,' he said.
The wind was suddenly roaring, the lamp was leaping with a long, smoky needle of flame, inside its chimney. Leaves and dust flew rattling on the terrace, there was a splash of lightning. Ramon's body lay there uncovered and motionless, the bandage was already soaked with blood, under the darkening, leaping light of the lamp.
And again Kate saw, vividly, how the body is the flame of the soul, leaping and sinking upon the invisible wick of the soul. And now the soul, like a wick, seemed spent, the body was a sinking, fading flame.
`Kindle his soul again, oh God !' she cried to herself.
All she could see of the naked body was the terrible absence of the living soul of it. All she wanted was for the soul to come back, the eyes to open.
They got him upon the bed and covered him, closing the doors against the wind and the rain. The doctor chafed his brow and hands with cognac. And at length the eyes opened; the soul was there, but standing far back.
For some moments Ramon lay with open eyes, without seeing or moving. Then he stirred a little.
`What's the matter?' he said.
`Keep still, Don Ramon,' said the doctor, who with his slim dark hands was even more delicate than a woman. `You have lost much blood. Keep still.'
'Where is Martin?'
